Are we eating healthy?? Are we really healthy??

I don't fall ill that often, now and then I get cold, fever like anyone. But the last six years were very worse. After reading all my medical documents ( I carry a big file), a doctor said every vacation you have a surgery done. I replied.. Doctor; You name it; I have it.., I've everything except for sugar and pressure.

Am I eating healthy?? Am I really healthy?? .. Since then, these two questions are something that I've started asking myself often.  

I used to compare me with my relatives and friends; none has undergone so many surgeries as me that too in late twenties. I started being proud that I'm capable of handling all these problems alone here with a naughty kid along with other household jobs. I've been searching the reasons for all my health problems. Few of the problems in me had no symptoms; few of them the doctor had no reason why I got them and had no clue whether I can get it again or not. 

When I met a lady next door who takes injection every week for some problems in her brain, I got really worried and thought God has given me fewer problems than her. I started feeling less proud about myself. He He He.. But my search towards how to stay healthy continued.

I went to chennai for vacation last June.  When I was just browsing the nearby organic shop, I found a tamil book.." Iyarkai Unavin Adhisayam; Arokiya Vazhvin Rahasiyam" meaning Miracles of Natural Food; Secrets for Healthy Living. You can buy it here.

The author Moo. Aa. Appan says eat uncooked raw vegetables/fruits for the healthy living. He has quoted many instances of those who got rid of their diseases after switching over to uncooked natural food. He gives remedies for each diseases and they are just raw fruits and vegetables. 

I thought let me give a try. My Mom and Hus joined me. Initially it was a bit difficult to change the entire diet. I tried changing my dinner to just vegetables and fruits. Then I slowly introduced the same during breakfast. Now and then I fell for Idli or Dosa. After many weeks, I am now very much successful and I eat cooked food only during lunch. It would be regular rice or little millets with lentils, greens and cooked vegetables. 

I need to make something clear about vegetables here. I eat raw carrots, cucumber, ridge gourd (peerkangai), gooseberries, banana stem (vazhaithandu), tomato, onions and whatever I can. I cook the other vegetables that cannot be eaten raw; cauliflower, drumstick, brinjal etc.. Somewhere I read cooked tomatoes are healthier than raw tomatoes. I cook tomatoes for sambar or any other curry during my lunch and so i feel thats ok. 

Simply speaking my dinner and breakfast includes either 80% of fruits & 20% of raw vegetables OR 80% fruits & sprouted greens OR just fruits alone.

The benefits:

I feel brisk and healthy. 
I can walk for an hour. I don't feel tired.. 
My periods has become normal.
Indigestion is very rare. 
The most important benefit is my weight reduced from 79kg to 71 kg in just 3-4 months with not much struggle but with an hour walk and little exercise now and then.

I love cooking and try to impress guests and those at home with a platter for every meal. Soups, Desserts, Chutneys, Idli, Dosa and what not. That made me to start blogging about food.. But if that cannot control my weight and make me energetic, it is better to get rid of it. But switching over completely to uncooked raw food is not possible as we are very much used to it. The regular periods is a positive sign of my health getting back to normal. It would take few more months for me to make sure whether my health problems have reduced. Hope I don't get any other new problems.

What say friends?? 

Stay tuned for easy uncooked recipes. 

P.S: I am not an expert. The above article is just my experience. I am sharing this so that others can benefit. I do not suggest this diet to children, pregnant ladies, lactating mothers or those who are seriously ill or who have just underwent surgeries. Please consult your doctor. 

I strongly recommend this article to be read by everyone who wants to reduce their body weight.
