Before going raw, I enjoyed fruit but didn't go crazy about it. I also rarely ate salads and when i heard about the raw diet for the first time, i instantly thought of deprivation and that although it sounded really healthy that i would never be able to do that. Now, weeks into this, i feel so much better, i have loads more energy, i feel more balanced. i was already a low stress person but now i feel even less stressed out. Another change i noticed is that i've grown into a neat person! I used to be so sloppy and messy, my room was a pig sty, i rarely picked up after myself. Now my room is nice and clean almost all the time and i actually almost enjoy doing dishes and i always pick up after my mess in the kitchen immediately after im done. its weird but im glad. i also now look forward to a nice fruit smoothie as a meal and have grown to relish the individual flavors of each fruit. things like bread and anything hot has a lot less of an appeal to me. anything remotely greasy, fried or made w/ dairy/eggs seems gross to me. its getting a lot easier now that cooked food is losing its appeal. it amazes me that almost everyone i know thinks that just regular vegetarianism is depriving let alone raw foodism and here i am eating pretty much all this delicious, nutritious stuff and i dont feel deprived whatsoever. i love it. :D i almost feel like im on another level, like i dont have the weight of all that congesting, heavy, distorted crap i used to eat on me.

You've definitely got the right idea/attitude Samariah! It's all about choosing to give a gift to yourself....and having an over-riding dream! :) Then eating raw food becomes the most normal thing in the world.

Isn't the human body amazing! Isn't the spirit amazing, what we can get out of things...
I'm so happy you're on this wonderful path of discovery :)

Ditto Samariah and even more interestingly I am having dreams about all of this healthy food. Things I've never really noticed or thought of before are popping into my head ie: while at the movies thinking about stopping off at the neighborhood fruit and vegetable stand on the way home. Do you think I ever had a thought like that before during a film? No. It was always: should I eat an ice cream now after I've eaten my chocolate candies or should I get a second bag of chocolate?
Today I was to meet a friend at a restaurant and while walking I thought...even though I'm at my mom's place I should look for a 'raw food' restaurant and I found one: 118 degrees in Costa Mesa...they have the best chocolate drink.
Yes, I too am experiencing the same thing. I just wish all these sick people I am running into would choose to eat differently. The owner of the fruit and vege stand had cancer and such bad arthritis they are telling him to get his shoulders replaced and he is not eating any of the fruits and veges at his stand...he only eats one meal a day which primarily consists of yogurt. It's nuts (pun intended)!
