thank you so much for the warm welcome & invitation!
alas, it did not answer my question.
what is expected (more detail please) in a 30 day raw challenge?

The main thing is that you eat all raw food (or as close to it as you can) for 30 days - this means eliminating cooked food and stocking up on all your favorite fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds and you can eat them in whole form or you can try out various raw recipes found here in our recipe section and in recipe books. You decide if you want to do recipes or not - if so, then you want to check out some recipe books, sites or again, our recipe section here and get an idea of what is needed such as condiments (agave nectar, vanilla extract, nama shoyu, nut butters, raw cacao powder, etc.); various types of spices/seasonings; various nuts and seeds, etc.
If you don't have it, it's a good idea to get a copy of Alissa's book, Living on Live Food as it really lays it all out for you with what to expect, what you do and do not eat, a food menu plan for 30 days (including a shopping list), testimonials/success stories/before and afters, over 200 recipes and a lot more. See more and get a better idea of all the book contains here: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=21157&highlight=book
But for the challenge, it's basically designed for people to try out the raw and living food "diet" (lifestyle) for 30 days to see how it impacts your life - hopefully you will see how much of a benefit it is and continue on with it but if not, you can always go back to your present way of eating.
You can also set up a blog and journal/chronicle each day with what you've eaten, how you feel, any changes, detox symptoms, improvements, etc. as well as before and after pictures. It's actually a good idea to journal just so you can look back and see what all has transpired over the course of the 30 days.
And as Lifeagift said, join the June Challenge thread/discussion to get support and encouragement from others doing the same thing!

The great thing about the 30 day challange is that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel when you are thinking that you have to have that special cooked something (for me it was toast) but after you have been raw for the 30 days you you probably will not want to have it but it will be your choice.

just what i needed.
i just ordered alissa's book & dvd, so whenever that gets here...
i listened to podcast 9 and decided to get it then, since i have raw recipe books, and really didn't need just another recipe book. the radio program was insightful to the books' value and substance.
again thank you for helping me with my question.
