about weightloss and being "high raw".
Some say you will lose weight this way and others say you will only lose weight if you are 100%.
I'm high raw and have lost 7 pounds so is it both ways or will one lose more at 100%.
I know if feel much lighter and i have experienced many benefits such as less headaches, legs don't hurt anymore, hair is growing and my gums are much healthier and my teeth are getting stronger, i guess more calcium rich foods.

For me, I don't care either way. I do what is healthiest. I'm not on a "weight loss diet". I'm on a raw lifestyle, and enjoy all that it entails, and all it does.
Raw is not another "weight loss diet" among the myriad of quackery programs out there. This is the real stuff.
Whether or not to do 100% (I don't do percentages, I am either raw or I am not), is a personal choice, left up to the individual. :)
Wonderful that you are experiencing better health through it all! :D

I started eating raw for health reasons and i'm getting great results but as i continue to read more and more about raw eating i do run across the weightloss issue and i just wanted to know if it does make any difference where weightloss is concerned.
Thanks for your response, i do like the way i'm feeling and looking forward to going all the way toward perfect health.

for me personally I have a hard time staying 100% raw... when I do eat SAD food though, I normally stick to pretty healthy stuff ....
so I guess I would say I"m high raw right now....
I've noticed that I don't really lose much weight on high raw alone but if I work out along with it, the weight does seem to come off pretty quickly. I'm sure if I was 100% it would be even more drastic.
that's just me though... for my body, I really have to work out or I'm not going to lose much weight .. or maybe I would, but it would be at a slower pace than I'd like.
hope that helps!
I know plenty of people who have lost weight and they are not 100%. I also know some people who are 100% and haven't lost any weight because they eat too many nuts and avocados. High raw works for me - my belly is gone, my asthma is gone, and my allergy to cats is gone. I eat 66%-100% raw depending upon what I am craving.
