View Full Version : New and Nervous!

I'm very excited to be here! But I have to admit I am nervous about starting to eat this way...I guess it's mostly because I am a single mom (of a kid who is a terribly picky eater!) and because I'm on a budget. I really want to try this because of some health problems I'm having. I'm only 30! I want to feel like it!

Hey Im 24 and I have been 100% raw 3 days, although this is not my first time on this journey. It can be expensive if you make it that way, but just set a budget, buy the best bang for your buck. After about 2 weeks you should a decrease in food needs, which in turn will save you money. I have a friend that has been pretty much raw for years and she is single no children. Her grocery bill is $40.00 a week. I am married and my appetite has not really decrease yet, I am buying for me and a very tall active man, we spend about $125.00 a week.

I second Gatorgrrl....your food needs WILL decrease. At first your bill may seem expensive because 1) you're stocking up on some staples and 2) you're going to eat more in the first week or three than you will after that. Don't get discouraged if you seem to eat all the time... soon you'll find that a simple piece of fruit will hold you for hours and you won't even be thinking about it. So, if it's a little more expensive up front, don't let that scare you away. :)
