The Skinny on Raw Food – Why Amanda Seyfried is Suffering Unnecessarily

Amanda Seyfried is eating raw and says it's "awful" - international raw food expert and celebrity coach Karen Knowler is ready to dispel the myth that raw food is just a bunch of carrots and apples.

(PRWEB) -- Mama Mia! actress Amanda Seyfried, featured in April’s Esquire magazine, is eating raw and apparently she’s finding it “awful”.

“Amanda needs a raw food coach,” says international raw food expert Karen Knowler. “Raw food has been misunderstood for decades in spite of there now being raw gourmet recipe books, high-end restaurants [Saf, London, 105 Degrees, OKC and Pure Food & Wine, NYC and all manner of raw food products proving otherwise.”

“Amanda has shared that a typical lunch comprises of spinach and seeds – even in raw food circles this would be considered unhealthy, let alone to the public at large.”

Knowler, 37, who easily passes for a woman ten years younger, has been eating a predominantly or all-raw food diet for 17 years and has been coaching and teaching others how to make raw food “easy, delicious and fun” for the past twelve. Like Seyfried, Knowler herself originally chose to eat raw for weight loss but soon found out that the benefits extended way beyond the aesthetic.

Knowler shares, “I was 20 when I first found out about raw food and I must admit when I first read about it it did seem a bit extreme, and yet so much about it made complete sense that I decided to give it a try.”

Knowler went on to drop 14lbs in weight “effortlessly” within a few short months and was delighted to experience other benefits too.

“People at work started commenting on how well I was looking as well as admiring my weight loss. For the first time in my life I felt truly healthy and people were telling me I glowed. More staggering than that though were my energy levels, they were literally shooting through the roof.”

So what was Knowler’s secret and what did she do differently?

“I made the decision right from the start that I would only eat food that I loved and as much as I wanted so I never once felt deprived. In fact it ended up being quite the opposite and eating raw or mostly raw proved to be surprisingly easy not to mention delicious. Within just a few weeks I discovered a vast array of divine foods and recipes that were raw that I’d never even heard of before and the door to a bright new world of food and vitality were blown wide open. I couldn’t believe how amazing I was feeling.”

So what do you eat?

“People think that raw food is literally just a bag of carrots and apples,” observes Knowler. “This couldn’t be further from the truth. The way I eat raw and teach others to do it is to find out your food personality and natural style first and then select the raw foods that are the best fit for that and the goals you want to reach. By putting pleasure first it’s very hard not to find a way of eating that ticks all the boxes – a wonderful thing, and it can literally transform a person from the inside out. Weight loss is of course brilliant, but what Amanda may not realise because her diet sounds seriously deficient, is that raw food done right can be the most wonderful way of eating imaginable. When I tell people I eat pizza, ice-cream and chocolate people struggle to comprehend how that can be raw. This is what Amanda needs to be turned on to so she can experience just how ‘awful’ raw food really can be!”
