I'm a 21 year old girl living in Colorado. I am pretty new to raw foods. I've done small amounts of time living raw, but now I'm hoping to make the transition to full time. I am a little nervous about losing too much weight, but we'll see how it goes!

Hi fellow Coloradite!
You really never know how your body will respond to raw. Some will lose, others will gain, while the rest won't see any difference.
The ones who typcially lose a lot will later rebuild and gain a healthy weight back, and it is believed to be because toxins are stored in fat cells.
Also make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. It can take a while to become accustomed to eating a large amount of it as a meal as most people look at it as a snack. And you are looking at lower calories than with cooked food, so it may take more to fill you up.

Welcome! I lost some weight when I first started and felt a lot lighter. I gained what I needed to gain to level out and now over a year later I am the same weight I have been for most of my life, but more tight and toned. Raw is amazing!!
