I've just started eating raw for about a week now. Not 100% but on and off. It's been a little hard, espeically when my parents are constantly waving cooked food in my face. I guess I haven't noticed any changes in my health except that I seem to be breaking out with whiteheads on my face. My skin also seems to be shedding?! Is this normal? Anyways, I've decided to go raw mainly for the health benefits everyone's been talking about. My current diet is a lot of fruits, nuts, veggies and raw eggs. Anyways, I'm still pretty new to this raw diet and haven't really done any research on my diet, so look forward to some stupid questions.

If it's at all possible, see if you can buy Alissa's book. Perhaps your parents will buy it for you -- and that way they can read it and see that you're totally sane to be starting on the raw food lifestyle.
Ummm ... one thing you want to lose is the raw eggs, though. Raw veganism is the way to go. And ... raw eggs are really dangerous to eat -- not only because eggs and dairy is unhealthy for you, but because of the bacteria that's in/on eggs.
Until you get Alissa's book (and maybe Eating Without Heating by two raw teens -- you can get it at www.rawfamily.com), eat plenty of greens, fruits, and some raw nuts. Make big salads with avocadoes. Eat lots of food. Make green smoothies (won't taste or be the texture of frozen mall smoothies - those nasty things - so be prepared) -- with some fruit and lots of dark green leafies. You can read about those on this forum or on www.rawfamily.com also.
Good luck. Looking through the archives, reading what Alissa has posted on her website and on the section here called something like "Want to know more about raw" will help you a lot.
