Famous raw foodists help bring attention to raw, living food lifestyles. They can make the average person, who often thinks that this is just some extreme and boring way of eating just carrot sticks and apples, totally fascinated and converted by both the variety and flavors of the foods, as well as the amazing side effects of eating this way! People also know that celebrities only want the best, can pay for whatever they want, and wouldn't promote just anything. Nor would they do anything long term that wasn't enjoyable. The secret is out, raw, living foods are the best tasting, gourmet foods out there, and everybody is wanting them!
Musician/Singer/Songwriter Jason Mraz (holding a knife in his left hand in the picture to the left) is known to eat a lot of raw foods, which he bragged about on his MySpace page back in 2008 at the same time that he posted this picture. For a full article on this go here. He does green smoothies in the morning and says "Anything processed just doesn’t seem real. I may as well eat cardboard if it has the same nutritional value....Plus, hot girls fresh from yoga hang out in natural food stores. And I suspect they’re horny. More and more people are getting excited about health and we’re all tired of being offered cheap replicas of food. We want change and we believe we CAN have it.” Canadian Rocker Bif Naked apparently embraces the raw foods lifestyle, as does Sting.
Donna Karen, the women's clothing designer, is a famous raw foodist who lost 20 pounds on lifefoods and has drawn a lot of attention to the diet due to how awesome she looks. My friend Jill Pettijohn, who also trained with Dr. David Jubb, helped her do it. Donna talked about her diet on the Martha Stewart Show and made a green drink for Martha.
Demi Moore has been on raw foods for a long time and looks it. Her fab raw body in Charlie's Angels helped to spread the raw food diet far and wide, making her one of the most famous raw foodists, showing that raw vegan weight loss really works as a permanent and joyful weight loss lifefstyle.
Alicia Silverstone has known about raw foods for a while, I used to talk to her years ago at raw food events. I know she has been vegan forever. Apparently she is mostly raw now, but I don't know. She openly talked about raw foods with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show anyway, promoting it big time. Alicia had a beautiful green vegan wedding too. Here is a PETA ad Alicia did; showing vegan weight loss is for real! While I don't support Peta tactics, I do think their central message is still important.
Supermodel Carol Alt is one of the most well known famous raw foodists, she is totally raw and openly promotes and teaches the lifestyle.Carol has published two raw food books with recipes and information. Unfortunately she also promotes raw animal products, but hey, it takes a long time to learn that you don't need this stuff, especially around the consciousness of modeling! She makes her own kefir from dairy, but it is so much better when made from coconut milk! Besides, doesn't everyone know; there is blood and pus in milk?! ewwwwwwwwww...(See video below).
Woody Harrelson has also been vegan for a long time and really into raw foods. Back before I first went raw I would go to the Oxygen Bar in Hollywood that he was half owner of along with Dr. Richard DeAndrea, and they served a 100% raw food menu. This restaurant was way ahead of its time; it also served oxygen! It had the most amazing sound system ever; I loved it! The restaurant didn't last, but now there are at least FIVE raw restaurants in the Los Angeles area; amazing how fast things change! Woody is in a great documentary on sustainable living, which includes vegan raw foods, called Go Further. Check out the trailer below!
Jared Leto,who was already vegetarian, gained weight for the film 27 by eating a lot of pizza and dairy. He gained so much weight he even ended up in a wheel chair for a short time. He lost all the weight fasting and eating raw foods. I don't know if he still eats a lot of raw foods, but he certainly knows about their power, and of course he is still vegetarian.
There are certainly quite a few other celebrities that I haven't listed who appreciate the lifestyle. For instance, I've seen Lisa Bonet at a lot of Juliano raw food events. David Duchovny, Michael Keaton, and Téa Leoni have all utilized Raw Food Celebrity Chef Burke Bryant's cuisine, who was trained by Juliano. The point is, the diet is not just a diet but a full body of wisdom and a full lifestyle, it is so powerful that of course celebrities will be some of the first to take notice and embrace it...especially due to its health-giving, beautifying, energizing, and weight losing side effects!

There are also other not-so-famous raw models that we see all the time in ads, like Anthony Anderson. That's him to the left, but you can check out his blog at RawModel.Com
Carol Alt has shown off her raw body in Playboy
WHAT CAROL HAS TO SAY ABOUT HER SPREAD:
"What was interesting to me at this moment in my life is not just my age; very few women my age do this; but I am a raw foodist and the only reason I look the way I do right now is because I changed my diet and started eating healthy, living foods, which are unprepared and unprocessed foods, the closest they can go from God to me," she laughed. "That is what I eat and my body shows it."
