View Full Version : I don't want to lose weight....

I am trying to switch over to a raw food diet but I keep hearing that one is likely to shed pounds on a raw diet and I don't want to. I am almost six feet tall, female, and have always been thin. I was wondering if anyone could give me any feedback on this?

Hi Queenie and welcome!
Well, at first, you may lose a few pounds as your body adjusts to this new way of eating and detoxifies and sheds dead cells and toxins, etc.
However, it's been most people's experience that after a while (and not necessarily a LONG while) your body will begin to rebuild healthy tissue, etc. and you will put some weight back on.
Here are a couple of threads for you, but also, do a search using the banana icon up top and type in "weight loss" or "lose weight" because there are some threads that you perhaps may want to read where members here were saying they're gaining weight by eating raw. You, my dear, are a prime example of exactly what I was saying...that there are some of us who went into this NOT needing to lose weight and not really desiring to do so either. So, the thought that not everyone who goes raw will end up looking malnourished and emaciated is just what we want to hear! :)
But if you can learn to trust your body and what it is doing as long as you're providing it with the proper foods (raw, living foods, that is) that it will do right by you - you'll be in good shape and see that your body WILL find IT'S healthy, and correct balance of weight.
Okay, those threads:

Rawkinlocs: thanks for your reply, and I agree, I just need to trust my body. I think it knows what to do. And I like to eat, so it'll balance out.
Congrats on your imminent move to WA, and good fortune to you. Gardening, by the way, is one of the joys of my life and I have one word: patience! Take care and I'll see you around the site.
