That's great news. It sure is a lot better than using all those expensive creams that do nothing anyhow. Raw food works for soooooo much!

Is it really true that by converting our eatting habbits to the raw food living lifestyle can lead to healing of scars and stretch marks?
Did they actually disappear to normal skin tone or fade white?
I know there are so many other benefits to living the raw food lifestyle and it is kinda of vain for me to ask and just focus on just this one but I really have some scars I would hope to have disappear, so if anyone has and more stories of scars or stretch marks of anykind that have disappeared, faded or reduced in anyway on the raw living food lifestyle, please share your story on this thread.

That's awesome! What about abdominal fat? I am not overweight, but I do have some belly flab that decades of exercise have not gotten rid of . . .

You sure that "belly flab" is actually fat and not just stretched out skin from when you were pregnant, or heavier?
It is my belief that a raw diet may help stretched out skin ---but only to a degree and that a tummy tuck would be the only way to get rid of it, if it is merely stretched-out skin and not fat

Mandi68, I've heard so many stories over the years of people having their stretchmarks and scars fade or completely heal on a raw food diet.
I have stretch marks from pregnancy and these have not completely gone away, but they've faded and become a lot smoother. They've also gotten a lot smaller in the region they take up, but that may be due to weight loss. I expect that over the years they may completely go.
Mary Kay, I too think raw helps the body deal with overstretched skin. People who lose weight on raw seem better able to bounce back to their original size with less excess skin than conventional weight loss.
Revdrcyn, 'belly flab' might also be chronic inflammation of the digestive system. I had belly flab I could not get rid of with exercising too, but most of it's gone on a raw food diet. I believe this wasn't so much weight loss but a stopping of eating cooked carbs like pasta and bread that decreased digestive inflamation and water retention in that area.

I have a pretty big scar right next to my left eye, and while it isn't gone it has indeed faded a lot. I've had it for nearly 25 years.
It makes me wonder exactly why it happened when I went raw. I somehow doubt that the absence of cooked food makes the difference alone. It has to be some nutrients that I'm getting more of on the raw diet.

:( I'm really upset that I actually looked and seem to have more apparent cellulite now than when I wasn't raw. It's making me sooo angry. How does this happen? I weigh less than I used to and eat tons and tons of green smoothies...
