It’s a chronic disease that over 260 million people suffer from across our planet. In the past ten years type 2 diabetes has tripled across the US alone. It’s a lifestyle disease that comes down to one thing, it’s caused from what you’re putting in your mouth.
The US has the most overweight people in the history of the human race, and 1 out of every 3 children born after the year 2000 will get diabetes. And what’s the reason? When you cook the food, you lose 50% of the protein, 70% to 80% of the vitamins and minerals, and close to 100% of the phytonutrients.
Simply Raw, follows six everyday Americans with diabetes who set out to change their lifestyles by switching from their normal foods to an entirely vegan diet without the use of pharmaceutical medication. The six take on the challenge of giving up meat, dairy, sugar, soda, junk food, processed food and all other cooked food for 30 days. Simply Raw captures not only the medical and physical transformations, but the emotional journey each challenged themselves to by switching to a raw diet, and how nature is truly the original medicine.
Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days documents each of the six individuals before they begin the program in their home environment. Each speak candidly about their everyday challenges to manage diabetes and how it has affected their daily lives, from work to home to their relationships.
