View Full Version : I'm back

After falling away from the raw food diet for almost a year, I'm back, and this time my husband is enthusiastic about it, too, and wants to eat more raw! Being off of raw food for so long has not been good for my health or appearance. I've gained about 50 pounds. I'm very fatigued. I get winded easily. My face breaks out, and my skin doesn't look great. It's a long story, but it all started with a car accident I was in. I was in pain and stopped exercising. Then my husband started having serious health problems, and I started eating lots of "comfort foods." I hate to think about what I lost by going off of raw food and not exercising. A year ago, at the age of 43, I was as fit as I'd ever been in my life. I was thin. My skin looked great, and I had energy. Now I need to work toward that again.The good news is, we're both inspired to get healthy now, and we know how to do it. Right now, my husband is at a raw food health institute, and he lost 18 pounds the first week. He's looking good and has more energy. We'll probably juice fast one day a week when he gets back. It's exciting because the last time I was raw, my husband didn't want to eat the way I did. Now I look forward to having a healthy lifestyle TOGETHER!!
It's nice to be back. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi and welcome back VeggieMel!
Isn't it great when husbands like you better raw and support this? Mine is supportive and it's been so fun. I'm glad yours is being so cool...
You tell him that... ;)

VeggieMel, it's so great to see you back! :) That's wonderful that your husband is embracing a raw food lifestyle with you. I'm also blessed with a husband that's on board with raw and it makes it much easier, and makes me so happy because he has health issues that are being healed on raw. :)
Welcome back! :D Say "hi" to the hubby. :)

Welcome back, nice to see you!
I'm in the same position. I've only been back on raw (100%, entirely fresh foods) since early December, with the same results as you (weight gain from having gone on a cooked bender which didn't quit).
I don't know what made it snap, but one day I decided I'd had it, and went out to the store, and bought fruit and greens, and haven't gone back.
I wish you peace, joy, health and happiness in your going back in the raw journey.
Hey welcome back! Those 50 pounds will be gone in no time! Just do what you know you need to and one day you will wake up and be back just where you were! Raw is the best!
