View Full Version : My intro...
Hello, I have heard about eating raw foods for health and weight loss for a while now. How I really got started on this WOE was from reading a book called The Doctor's Quick Weight Loss Diet, writen by Max Stillman. I have been mostly raw since 10/21/06. I eat SAD on Holidays. I will be changing that very soon though.
I started on my weight loss quest on 4-03 at the weight of 266. I now weigh 181 as of 2 days ago. I fell off the raw food wagon 2 days ago. I will be jumping right back on though.
I am married with 3 girls living at home. I have 1 child who loves to eat raw foods.

Welcome to our big family! Wow, you have lost a lot of weight already. That is wonderful. Best wishes to you and your family!
Thanks for the welcome. I'm glad to be here. I usually post at another fourm. But that's a low carb message board, and I don't do that anymore. I was starting to feel strange there. I wanted to keep telling them that they were eating the wrong way. I even told then as much. Kinda made a joke of it, they said they didn't want me going anywhere. But... I wasn't feeling as comfortabe as I used to be there. So, here I am.

Welcome Doit! I agree cooked carbs are bad news. But natures carbs are fruit and they are wonderful. Fruit gets a bad rap from most weight loss diets.
Congratulations on all your weight loss, that is terrific!

Being raw is a wonderful thing, esp when u have one child that loves raw..
My son does and that helps me esp. around the holidays.
Good luck. This board really helps with issues concerning raw.

Welcome. It sounds as though you are on you way to some more weight loss but the added advantage is how great you will feel going raw. Hope to hear from you more.

Well you made it......that is to the Right Forum. It is so nice that you have used all of these ports in your Journey as Building Blocks. That is the quick weight lose book got you started in a positive direction, the low carb gave you results for a while.
But now you have made it to the TOP. There is nothing better than RAW, it will take care of you if you stick with it. Its is a LifeStyle of suttle changes that will change you forever.
You will be able to help your Girls by teaching them by example, which I think is the best teacher.
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW......Welcome to MY World....
