  • We're literally just like herbivores for a week.

  • Is that what this is?

  • A raw diet consists of unprocessed and uncooked foods.

  • Most experts agree that cooked food may be mixed into the diet to maintain one's digestive process

  • But we found people to go all in for a week

  • People eat raw for a week

  • My diet's not very good right now.

  • I eat a lot of Taco Bell.

  • I feel weighed down and tired

  • and I just wanna get more energetic.

  • I just eat cookies and things that have

  • tons of sugar in them.

  • Because of that, I feel like crap.

  • Honestly, I want to see if I can do this long term

  • 'cause I think this is the healthiest diet on the planet.

  • I'm Jason Wrobel, I'm a celebrity, vegan, and raw food chef

  • and author of the book Eaternity.

  • There are tremendous physical and mental benefits

  • to choosing a raw vegan lifestyle,

  • and that's partially because the food that you're eating,

  • there's a ton of minerals and enzymes

  • and vitamins and proteins,

  • amino acids, antioxidants.

  • What is 118 degrees?

  • How am I gonna keep track of that?

  • I mean, I try to do that anyway.

  • That sounds expensive.

  • Oh, we can eat animals?

  • Does sashimi count?

  • (upbeat music)

  • Let's check out my lunch.

  • I personally recommend experimenting

  • with a lot of different raw vegan foods

  • to see what combination and amount works best for you.

  • So, I'm on this raw diet.

  • Yeah.

  • And I've eaten six bananas.

  • Jesus Christ.

  • Why are you eating so many bananas?

  • 'Cause I'm on a raw diet

  • and I don't know what else to eat.

  • My stomach is full but my brain wants something cooked.

  • And its important to dial into the foods

  • that make you feel best.

  • I can't stop thinking about the pizza rolls

  • that are in my freezer.

  • Pie, pie.

  • More pies.

  • Pie.

  • People enjoying pies.

  • Variety is the key.

  • Nutrient density is the key.

  • I've just been eating bananas and apples

  • and cashews and nuts.

  • I'm on my way to go grab some sushi.

  • Yeah, I think I'm gonna just do this every day.

  • Okay, this is really amazing, this is crazy good.

  • Raw pad Thai.

  • So this is the raw foods aisle.

  • I just paid like $10 for this fucking wrap.

  • Today's gonna be a day of torture.

  • My friends are gonna be eating a ton of food

  • and I'm just gonna watch them.

  • All right, the only thing I can eat.

  • Oh wait, I almost put it in that ranch.

  • Lunch was 10 oranges, like Cutie oranges.

  • Every time I expended energy in any way,

  • I needed to eat again 'cause it was just rushing through me.

  • These are vegetables, right?

  • I feel weak.

  • Honestly, I feel really physically weak.

  • Everything, literally everything's either cooked, processed,

  • It's so annoying.

  • So annoying.

  • They were clearly struggling..

  • So we brought in Jason for a raw cooking session

  • I'm here today to make chocolate avocado pudding

  • all raw, all vegan, super creamy.

  • Grab the hemp seeds, we're gonna throw those bad boys in.

  • Go ahead and take the spring water

  • and add one cup to the blender.

  • Throw it in the hatch.

  • - Yeah, high tech, baby. - [Women] Whoa.

  • It's so smooth.

  • High tech.

  • Well, here's the thing, I don't like preparing food.

  • By and large there's not a ton of convenient raw options

  • so you do have to get good at preparing your own food.

  • When was the last time you went to McDonald's?

  • 1996.

  • Oh my lord.

  • So, we got our base ready

  • and let's go ahead and add the rest of our ingredients.

  • A half cup of our cacao powder.

  • Grab the coconut nectar and we're gonna add a half cup.

  • Grab the vanilla extract right there,

  • and we're gonna add a half a teaspoon of that.

  • Next we're gonna throw in some extra virgin coconut oil.

  • This is like, thick, this is like, I mean--

  • If I had a dollar for every time I heard that. (laughs)

  • We gotta throw a pinch of salt in there.

  • Then we're gonna do two avos in this recipe.

  • (mixer whirs)

  • - [Blonde] Whoa. - [Brunette] Whoa.

  • And let's check the consistency.

  • You would think that this is--

  • Straight up like jello pudding, right?

  • Yeah, I mean its incredible, look at that.

  • It's so fluffy, oh my gosh

  • Wow, okay.

  • It tastes really rich, it's fluffy but it's dense

  • Mm-hmm.

  • I ate like 20 bananas in this past week.

  • How do people maintain this lifestyle

  • and are like, happy about it?

  • So one of the ways that I thrived for years

  • on a fully raw diet was just a lot of variety.

  • I know this is much to your chagrin,

  • but actually making food at home

  • is kind of something you can't get around

  • if you're gonna go fully raw

  • Thank you so much.

  • It's my pleasure, enjoy.

  • - Thanks, ladies. - [Women] Thank you.

  • I lost three pounds.

  • So my skin actually got a lot better.

  • It cleared up a lot.

  • I disciplined myself so much during the week

  • that I don't really wanna give it up.

  • I think maybe in the future if I have more time

  • and more money, I might revisit raw.

  • It made me think about what I was putting in my body.

  • I think I could have liked it

  • if I was better at preparing food.

  • I have a huge respect for people that are raw

  • 'cause I think it's really hard. (laughs)

  • I'll probably implement more raw foods into my diet.

  • But I'm done with this, I'm out!

  • I don't think you should eat another ba...,

  • how many bananas do you have?

  • Stop it!

  • (thud)

We're literally just like herbivores for a week.
