I just got Alissa's book from the library.
It sounds very interesting.
I have had a weight problem all my life; me and my husband are TTCing and have been unsuccessful. I have been diagnosed with intermediaries and now looking for a healthy way to live. My doctor wants me on a low carb doet with 20 grams of carbs a day..I dont feel this is healthy.
Oooh I think 20 grams of carbs/day is unhealthy too! Welcome Alessandra! This is a great board, and promotes a way of eating that I think the whole human race should embrace... and I've only been eating raw for 2 weeks! I'm the same as you- struggled with my weight even as a child. I'm not eating raw just for weight loss, but I am hoping that will be the bonus. I've lost ten pounds already which I'm happy about, but more than that- I feel happy and more energetic and a lot of the health issues I suffer from seem to already being alleviating. Good luck!
