hi my name is Ebony im new to hole whole raw thing i have not started cause i been reading up on it for the past week but im looking forward to it.my sisters thinks im gonna kill myself it bugs me cause if i tell my whole family im going raw they will probably discourage me and tell me its not good but im 19 so they can't force me to eat cook foods once i go raw i actually think i gonna start with the green smoothies cause i love fruits and veggies. i just mainly trying to get a healthy lifestyle cause my mom died back in December of an anyersum due to stress and high blood pressure so i going raw no matter how much someone tries to stop me

Welcome! Best wishes and I'm sure your family's fears will get better as they see how awesome you feel raw! Make sure to eat lots at first. I went back to cooked last summer on my first raw attempt because I wasn't eating enough. This time I really stocked up and let myself eat tons and as I've adjusted I eat less.

Welcome Ebony!!! I wish you all the best! As Raw Yogini said, be sure you eat plenty, and a variety of raw foods. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, sprouts...... You are young. You need fuel!!When your family sees the beautiful foods you are eating and that you aren't starving yourself, they will probably come around. I am so sorry that you lost your Mom. (((hugs for you)))
Best wishes on your journey!

If you don't have Alissa's book, get it and let them read it.....maybe you'll have others jump on board with you. SOOOO sorry to hear about your Mother. I just lost someone close to me in January and it's not easy....I'm 45 and have found that time does alot to help heal your heart, you just have to get some time behind you. Well......I just want to say welcome. You'll enjoy it here.
