Tonya knows firsthand what it is to be humiliated, face adversity and meet the complex obstacles of daily living with a physical disability in an oppressive political environment. She dreamed that one day she could walk without a limp. She just had to find a way to look youthful and beautiful for that time, even if that special moment was decades away. Pursuing her aspirations, she became interested in people who looked younger than their chronological age.
While being fascinated with glowing health and attractiveness of others, she faced the formidable challenges herself. Confronted with the necessity of extensive surgeries to enable her to walk normally, she was seeking a lifestyle that would help her recovery and offset the ravages of multiple operations.
Using the same determination and intelligence that allowed her to achieve advanced degrees in engineering and mathematics, she immersed herself in scientific data on health and nutrition. She became more and more convinced that the solution to her lifelong quest for health and beauty was to be found in the raw foods. Tonya has been following the raw food lifestyle since 1997. She put this lifestyle to the real test when she used it against not only the common "after forty" downslide but also to offset the grave consequences on the body brought on by general anesthetics and pain.
Tonya Zavasta is an author, speaker and expert on the raw foods and anti-aging lifestyle. Tonya transformed her own life. Now she wants to help others do the same. Her books, Your Right to Be Beautiful, Beautiful on Raw and Quantum Eating: The Ultimate Elixir of Youth are about how to radically improve your life, health, and appearance through the raw food lifestyle.
Tonya walks her talk and now at 50 looks better than ever. She travels the country extensively with motivational and raw food lectures. In both her books and her speeches, she uses humor and an original perspective to deliver uniquely entertaining and powerful presentations. Tonya Zavasta combines genuine style with scientific research and quantifiable first-hand experience as she aspires to help people to make the most of their potential.

"Just dare and life will be fair"- Tonya Zavasta
"Rawsome beauty is a manifestation of natural laws, which if not for raw foods would have been hidden from us forever. The best proof raw plant eating is optimal for the body is it makes you beautiful."- Tonya Zavasta
"Your external beauty is at its best when your internal organs are in the best possible shape, form, and color. Beautiful is not something extra the body needs: to be beautiful both inside and out is the natural state of one's body."- Tonya Zavasta
"As you will be changing the food you put into your mouth, you will be changing yourself. Since FORM follows PERFORMANCE, you will see yourself shape-shifting into a new Rawsome you. I can't promise you'll look 20 years old. But I can promise you one thing. I promise this... you will avoid or reverse the distortions of the old age. You will begin looking like young adult." -Tonya Zavasta
"Truth, and goodness, and beauty are but different faces of the same all."-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"At age 50, every man has the face he deserves."--George Orwell, author of 1984
Raw food eating will clarify and refine your features and bring delicacy to your face. People who have been on the raw food lifestyle for several years begin to have a glow, the kind not often seen in middle-aged people. Optimal health is recognized by an emerging radiance. Glow is hard to fake because it is internal. It comes from an abundance of clear, pink, almost transparent cells that light up the face. Only superior blood circulation can bring this transfiguring glow.
