View Full Version : Raw food buddy?
08-03-2007, 01:53 PM
I would love to have raw food buddy - like Victoria recomends. I do not have a cell phone, but I am out usually just a few hours a day. I live in Los Angeles, so it is better if the buddy would be from Pacific time. Anyone?

Have you considered getting in on the Rawgust challenge thread? Lots of support there and shouldn't be a problem if you are home/near a computer a lot of the time.

I'm central standard time here in Indiana.
I would also love to have a Raw Buddy.
I have a home phone and do not mine keeping in touch with you on a weekly basis.
Let me know my email is: email@example.com
I'll look for your email and give you a call:)

Great idea! I recently e-mailed someone with a year of raw eating under their belt and asked them to "sponsor" me. I actually thought about starting a thread to get people to hook-up with a buddy.

Thank you so much, I will email you, Bethanie.

Oh, and the person does not have to be long term rawfoodist - I just need some "live" support in the moment of weakness and accountability, I guess. And I would do the same for that person as well. I was all raw for 6 months before and then fell off. I think partly because weekly raw food potlucks next to me stopped and my husband is not supportive of my diet.

This is really a great idea! I'd love a buddy, some times a voice would be sooo nice! I'm up in Monterey, Ca.
I can be contacted at:
:) :) :)
I just emailed you Elissa!

Oh, my, me too. maybe we can have a buddy call list-the more the more chances to get help in the moment of weakness!
Haha. We'll have to have an 800 number for conference calls or something. :)
You know, you two are both on Pacific Time anyways! I'm about to poop out at this late hour of 11:18. It just seemed like such a nice idea! I want so much to stay accountable, but I am finding a lot of success from blogging. I do NOT want to write tomorrow that I had something bad today! :eek:

Hey! I'm the freak who couldn't figure out how to blog before, but whenI did, I posted that I was hoping for a raw buddy!! Any-bunny wanna email me to??!!!
I'm in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada..... so I doubt anyone will be calling too often, but my personal email is
firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'd really love to try some one-on-one support in addition to the cite. Oh, today is Day 4 Raw..... I've been feeling wicked until just the afternoon, perhaps a little too much sun....but I've been kinda nauseus for the past few hours.
Anyway, I love this site. It's been an incredible help:p

If you have yahoo messenger with voice and a head set you can voice chat for free to anyone in the world. I live in WI and would love to have an accountability buddy either through IM's or voice chats. My yahoo name is hjdmom23

I'm no expert on raw foods yet, but if anyone wants to get in touch, my MSN Messenger e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org :)

Hey, you guys, as a member of 12 step recovery, I can't stress enough the effectiveness of this method of people helping each other personally. All the major raw food proponents like Alissa and Victoria Boutenko recognize the almost-overpowering addictive qualities of cooked food. One way to overcome addiction is accountability to another person. Our on-line community is good for that; take it one step further and get yourself a raw buddy or raw drill sargeant. E-mail them. Use your free cell phone minutes on the weekend to talk to them. Send them a postcard. As someone who has struggled for over a year trying to be raw and has now made it over the hump to the glorious energy of eating all raw with the help of a raw sponsor, I'm telling you! Don't give up;)

I think having a raw food buddy would be IDEAL for me right now. I'm fighting a lot of discouragement trying to get "back into" raw. Last year I did it for about 8 months and lost 80 pounds. Lately I have just been stalled. I'll eat raw one day and then SAD the next. My motivation just up and poofed!
I'm in Portland, OR but I don't sleep much, so a raw food buddy from anywhere in the US would be just perfect. My email address is email@example.com, and on AIM I'm eveleafie. If you want a raw food buddy, drop me a line!

That is so wonderful! Hopefully everyone got at least one buddy!

Ooh good idea. I'm on Eastern time but I can be reached by email at:
would love to hear from people!

I have a crazy school schedule coming up, but am on Yahoo messenger most nights (so I can talk to the honey)...
rowansshadow74 <--- remember the 2 s's :D
I have a cellphone which doesn't work all the time in this apartment, but voice chat on yahoo really works well.

What a brilliant idea! I would love a raw buddy to call or email for support. I certainly could have used one today at a party while I stuffed my face with pizza! This is a slippery slope I've been on since Friday. It all started with a little stress and a slice of pizza. Today it was 2 slices of pizza and I feel terrible!
I'm eastern time. If anyone would like to buddy with me please email me at Hanani9@aol.com. Or if you have AIM, you can instant message me!
