It's an awesome way to live and to grow, however very challenging for most people.

I have done it with great success although it takes time to get used to but the benefits are awesome.

I eat now about 90 percent to 10 cooked. In other words every now in the I have a cooked meal supplemented with lots of enzymes.

It's usually something on my pigout day like pizza or something.
Old habits die hard you know.

But the raw food diet is excellent for health, vibrancy and for bodybuilding.

Hi, at the moment I'm eating about 90% raw food(not organic) and fell
great!!
Will I still benefit from taking Massenzymes? why?
if I change my diet to 100%organic do I need enzymes?

Alon,

You would still benefit from the enzymes, simply because for all the years that you have not been eating raw you need to replenish your enzyme potential. Although eating raw is great you still have lost in best case scenario about 60% olf your enzymes by the time you are 30 years old. There is just not enogh enzymes in the raw organic food to replenish that loss. Besides your body has to fight pollution, stress, viruses and other life uncertanties that just did not exist 50 years ago. It all requeres energy, and enzymes=energy. For more information read Dr.Howells book Enzyme Nutrition and laso read through popular questions about enzymes on the purchase page for MassZymes.

Hope this helps.
