I am truly blessed to have found this website!! I am 39 years old and have never eaten a "healthy" diet. As you can guess, I am very obese (about 130 lbs overweight). I have tried every diet under the sun, but have realized that what I need is to be healthy. Get healthy and the weight will go, right?
I live in southwestern Indiana, near Evansville. Anyone out there close to me? I would love suggestions on how to get a teenage boy and a husband to eat raw. :D I have ordered Ms. Cohen's book and DVD.
I know that this is what Jesus wants me to do. If he is on my side, who can be against me? I look forward to getting to know all of you and celebrating the raw lifestyle.

Welcome and I know you'll love the book and DVD. Watch the DVD with dh and son...it'll get them into the understanding of what you are doing by eating raw and how easy it can be. It's very positive and Alissa beams.

DeNeice, I just got the book on Saturday, and the dvd's as well. And am new to this. My parents tried raw a few years back, and actually they went clear to North Carolina (we're in Wisconsin), to Hallelujah Acres and did one of their courses on raw. Dad had cancer, so it was a really urgent situation. Anyways...I think some people call it the Genesis diet...read Genesis 1:29-30. I, too, am hoping it helps with the weight problem. I am pretty convinced it will. I actually love vegetables, and a lot of the recipes I've tried from the book are soooo good. I'm not big on sweets, so the carrot/pecan "burgers" are my favorites so far. However, I did try the chocolate brownies recipe on this web site, and it is out of this world..I've made a few unsuspecting people try them and they loved these as well. I've really been enjoying a lot of these foods. And you know you're nourishing your body. It feels so good. Good luck...this should do it for you!

You are so Right, diets never work, that is at least for any period of time, unless you make LifeStyle Changes. And that is what RAW is, its a LifeStyle Change. Its today, tomorrow and every day after.
I would not try to get my Family to eat RAW-This is YOUR Journey, so let's get yourself together first. There is No better way to learn than by example, so MY Friend you be the best example.
What I would do is incorperate more RAW Food in my meal planning, such as Salads, Fruits, Chutneys, Salsas etc.
These are suggestions, I don't have all the answers but HE does and HE is ALWAYS on your side. You take one step and HE will take TWO......So lets do this.......Jump into the 30 day Challenge and see the change by EASTER.......
I Look forward to reading of your progress. Ask questions, there are lots of people here with answers just waiting to help you. You can also use the "SEARCH" at the top of this page.
I wish you everything you need to Stay RAW.....Welcome to MY World.......
