Anthony Anderson, created rawmodel.com in 2007 to document his journey from eating cooked to raw (“live”- plants, nuts, fruit) foods. Motivated initially by the desire to lean up and lose a little weight for his modeling career, he happened upon a book about raw foods and decided to try it for 2 weeks. Aside from seeing physical changes almost immediately, he also experienced profound bursts of energy, happiness, and metal clarity. He became convinced through his own trial, errors, and further research that eating raw/living foods is the way human beings should eat and live. He has gone through the ups and downs of raw foods and hopes to share his experiences in order to make it easier for others that are just begining their own journey.
Anthony has worked with companies such as Hugo Boss, Target, Macy’s, Tommy Hilfiger, JcPenney, Kohls, Acura, and Paul Mitchell. Though he enjoys modeling, his true passion is spreading ideas and awareness about green and simple living, and the raw-foods lifestyle. He is now building a self-sustainable home and organic garden/orchard in Minnesota where he is growing over 200 kinds of fruits and vegetables, and loves to spend time in nature while hiking, camping, and wild food foraging.
His ultimate goal is to recreate paradise on Earth by spreading the idea of organic living and self-sustainabilty, and to help others realize their full potential.
