View Full Version : Going raw today!!!

Hello, all! It's great to be here, starting on my Raw Journey. I'm very excited about this, and have been planning very carefully to go raw today. I'm really interested to see what kinds of effects this will have on me! I'm a 20 year old female college student, and I became vegan at the beginning of the year. I love it, but I find myself ingesting too many processed foods. So, I decided to make a commitment to myself to go completely raw for at least a few months to see how it affects me. I've been overweight for quite sometime, and though I exercise I see almost no improvement, though since I went vegan I've felt much better inside and out. I think going raw will give me the freedom to succeed like I've always dreamed of, and am very happy to have a place like this to come and learn from.
Thank you for having me!

One thing I found that really helps me is to ALWAYS have food with you. We are most likely to go off raw when we are around others who are eating and we don't have our own food choices. Keep foods with you for those times. Also, make sure you have plenty of foods in your house/dorm/etc. Running out of food and falling back into "oh well, there's pasta here..." etc happens too.
Best of luck! Green smoothies are amazing if you have a blender.

Thank you all for the support and advice. It won't be a hard thing to do, for me, because I'm married, so we have our own place I can stock up with yummy raw stuff. Keeping food around with you seems like great advice. There is are temptations like the ones that catch you unprepared!

Thank you, rawstrength! I honesty hadn't thought about that. I think hearing that helps more than almost anything (don't get me wrong, the other advice has been great!), because it helps to reinforce the fact that I am indeed, doing what I've always known I could do, but did not (until now).
