View Full Version : How old were you when you went raw?

I'm curious about how old you were when you went raw. I'm transitioning and I am 44 years old. So I've been on SAD for more than four decades!

I was 21 and have been raw for 4 months in 10 days!

I'll be 16 in a few days. I hear so many people say they wish they'd started sooner! So I'm glad to be making the transition now, but at any age your body will thank you! Good luck on your journey.

It was 2001, so I was 48 then, I've been on and off raw for over 5 years, YIKES, thank goddess, I'm on the RAW band wagon now!!!

I "was" 34 last year when I first went raw....back to 100% now, and will be 35 in May....my body is SOOO thankful, and I think no matter what age you are, your body will thank you. If you have Alissa's book...there is a woman who was at least in her 60's or 70's when she went raw! I think it's great!
I started transistioning at 30. Vegan for years prior and vegetarian through my teen years. raw seemed like a natural progression to get greater health.

At birth I was breast fed, does that count? :D

I started near the end of 2005. I turned 27 in January.
granted, i'm not 100% yet, but my, it's quite a journey. I wish I had known about this diet when I was in my teens. I also wish, atleast, that I had gone vegan then.

I'm almost 19 and I started toying with the idea when I was 16 or 17, I don't remember hahha.

I have been on and off raw since I was 31 or 32...I am now 35.
Never a vegan or vegetarian beforehand, but was into whole organic foods, less processed, no additives, preservatives, and colorings. Also into other natural
living practices, natural childbirth, cloth diapers, and environmental issues.

I started this year at 31.

I first learned about raw when I was 19 and have now been 29 days raw, and I'm currently 20. I'm planning to stick to raw from here on in, so hopefully the year between when I first learned about raw and now was my time to adjust. ;)

hmmmm.... i started a high raw diet at age..... i think 24 - yikes! i am 32.... i wish i had gone 100% raw then! ..... i was vegan for a while, working in a vegan restaurant (caravan of dreams - before they had the raw menu)... they started learning about raw when i was there - it was a great learning experience, lotsa raw teachers coming, etc
