It is important to understand that sustained aerobic exercise of half to 1 hour causes blood to rush through our vessels several times over normal, resting conditions. Imagine - within minutes, each individual cell is suddenly immersed in a gushing, rushing torrent of nutrients which bathe the cells.
The blood transport the nutrients, including oxygen to the intestinal tissue fluid. The blood and lymph transport metabolic wastes and toxins to the elimination channels. during exercise, therefore, the accelerated oxygenation improves cellular metabolism: and the higher body temperature mobilizes waste by-products for the accelerated elimination. And because both the blood and lymph circulation are greatly increased during exercise, toxic build-up is reversed.
A person can hardly do anything better each day than work up a good sweat. If you are already on a Ideal Diet - congratulations! - but without regular exercise you simply cannot be fully healthy, period! Without sustained, strenuous sweating your eliminations of fat cells and other wastes are virtually nil.
You can see this unhealthy tissue hanging all over your body as cellulite, for example, or by various skin symptoms, such as acne and psoriasis. But have you ever noticed the healthy glowing rosy cheeks of a person who has just exercised? It is because of the greatly increased blood flow and with it, the oxygenation and cleansing of every cell in the body.
People who are new to the low fat raw vegan (or cooked) vegan lifestyle tend to focus primarily, if not entirely, on the diet. But this is really only a half of the solution. Fruits and vegetables are good, but not enough. If we really want health we must earn it - work for it.
I recommend to eat a lot of fruits for fueling your body to work out and big green salads to balance it with minerals. If you eat 2000-3000 cals or more natural foods in a day you will have the willpower and wish to exercise! I use to be a lazyass myself. I just couldnt go out for a jog. It was so hard and i had to force myself. And often i gave up completely after just few weeks. But now, while eating lots of fruits, some cooked vegetables and fresh greens (2500-3000 cals a day) i WANT TO exercise. I regularly exercise 3-4 times a week. Normally i go out for a jog in the mornings for 45 minutes and it feels so good. So eat right so you will have the power and will to exercise. But dont just eat healthy and expect complete health, because food is 50% and exercise is another 50% of 100% health.
