View Full Version : hoping to become raw
10-30-2006, 03:35 PM
Hi everyone, today i heard about Alissa Cohen on the Tyra Banks show and am going to try it. I saw this sight and thought oh what a great inspiration. I am hoping for something great to come from this since i am definatly not a salad nut. I have lost 30 pounds about a year ago by working my butt off but now that just doesn't seem to be enough for me. Wish me luck and good luck all of you

Hi Susan, welcome - eating this way will cause the weight to come off much easier and with less effort than cooked diets do.
Take a look around and click on the banana at the top to search for a specific topic. Likely anything you want to know has already been asked and answered. :)

Welcome to the forum,
I'm not much for salads either, and I've lost 85 pounds in 7 months, so don't think this is rubber carrots and wilted lettuce, it isn't, it's pizza and burgers, and ice creams and chocolate mousse, and enchiladas, and spaghetti and rawvioli, and torte and cake and pie and nut milkshakes, and, well, you get the idea.
good to have you here.

I saw Tyra's show too and was very inspired by Alissa Cohen. Her skin was glowing and her hair was shiny.

hey guys! welcome! im so happy youve all taken the initiative to seek out alissa more thoroughly..her teachings are great and this is an asbolutely wonderful forum. youll be able to find a ton of recipes passed around, and many people on here have their own websites to which they link you in their signatures with even MORE recipes so that you dont just have to eat carrot sticks and lettuce :D
www.fromsadtoraw.com is a great place to start off..and i really recommend alissas book. helped me a lot and wonderful recipes.
