If you drink 5+ liters of green smoothes (done in high quality blender like Vitamix), with some (raw) hemp, you will.

it's theorized, and likely, that cooking food is what gave humans their evolutionary advantage, supplying more calories.
Take highest quality probiotics that you can find to build healthy gut flora. Avoid anti-biotics as much as possible.
As for cooking food. A 100g of cooked steak has much more calories than 100g of greens. Sure. What I have read is that one of the problems of early people was that they had to feed whole day long on fruits, vegetables, greens, etc. They didn't have time for much else. Today with blenders we can drink far more greens and much quicker. As quick as cooking food. And if you need calories, you can add raw high quality oils.
