A study compared the effect of feeding mice one of four diets for four days: raw sweet potato, cooked sweet potato, raw beef, or cooked beef. The mice on the cooked diets maintained their weight, but those on the raw diet lost weight, even though they ate more calories. Despite having higher food intake and ingesting more calories, the mice lost weight simply by eating raw food.
Eating more of your foods in raw, or minimally cooked, will mean we decrease the energy density of the food we eat. We also will experience the various health benefits that cooking can destroy due to the heat used. We can eat significantly more raw vegetables and fruits to get the same energy intake than if those same foods were cooked or processed. Plus we get more nutrients and antioxidants too.
