(US/fl) Going raw sparks life change -- and a movie
- CANBERRA (Reuters Life!) - Inspired by a documentary about eating only
McDonald's for 30 days, Jenna Norwood decided to go for the opposite
and only eat raw, organic food for a month with the result sparking
major lifestyle changes -- and a movie.
The 2004 film "Super Size Me" followed American filmmaker Morgan
Spurlock for 30 days when he ate food only from McDonald's and
supersized his meal every time he was asked -- and he put on 24.5
pounds and suffered mood swings and liver damage.
Florida-based Norwood said this got her thinking about what would
happen if you only ate healthy food for a month so she decided to try
it, keen to slim into a showgirl costume for Halloween, with a film
crew following her during that time.
"Things happened beyond my expectations. I had been a vegetarian for
26 years but I was an unhealthy vegetarian, eating a lot of junk and
processed foods and always eating on the run," Norwood told Reuters in
a telephone interview.
Norwood said eating raw did not have to be dull. Wine is distilled not
fermented so is raw and you can get raw chocolate.
"If it weren't for raw chocolate I don't know if I could do this. We
make raw chocolate brownies and truffles from which you can get all
the satisfaction you need," she said.
