To keep the body warm, consider eating food which is at room temperature. Cold refrigerated food will cool the body. Perhaps you can adjust your refrigerator to the warmest temperature it will allow.
Serving raw soups in warmed up ceramic bowls may be helpful to make the transition. Warm water with a twist of lemon juice may also be helpful. To test if the water is too hot, you should be able to keep a finger in it for 4 seconds without discomfort.
We can eat certain types of food to warm the system.
Fats warm the system. Fats contain the same elements as the carbohydrates, but the hydrogen is present in a much larger quantity, and this results in more heat being produced by its break-down and digestion.
Potassium-rich foods are warming foods. Some nuts, such as macadamias, have a high level of potassium, as do seeds, such as sunflower seeds. Most fruits are rich in potassium. Some of the most warming, highest-potassium fruits are: avocados, dates, durians, persimmons (with seeds), prunes, pumpkin, raisins (with seeds), and sun-dried apricots. You will also notice that these fruits correspond to what is available in the fall and winter.
Sulfur-residue foods warm the body. Sulfur-reside foods include: cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and onions. Durian has a high sulfur and potassium-yield. In Asia, one who overeats durian is often said to have "hot eyes."
Eat a meal that is high in fats, potassium, and/or sulfur and you will notice a heating reaction within 45 minutes as the food begins to digest. This reaction will become more pronounced over time as one becomes more purified by eating a raw-food diet.
