Hi there... I have been transitioning from SAD to Raw for about 4 months now. I started with vegetarian, then went vegan, and now I am 50-75% Raw as of this week.
I am joining because this is hard!!! I have comforted myself with food since childhood, and going Raw is showing me just how much!! It is painful, but a blessing because I know that I will be healthier because of it.. so any advice you could give me would be great!
Thanks all. :)

Well, I am new myself...so, I can't give much in way of experience/advice. But, you can talk to me if you need any support! :D
I was vegetarian, then vegan, and now on day 2 of my raw vegan 30 day challenge...
Have you joined the challenge? Even though this is going to be a way of life for me, I think joining the 30-day challenge makes the concept of time less harrowing...
Anyway, best of luck!

Hi Kristen.. I didn't even think about that.. but having that accountability is certainly most needed!
My husband and kiddos are not into what I am doing, and though I can incorporate some raw goodness for them, I still have to prepare standard food for them... that makes it difficult for me... :(
I am off to check out that thread. Thanks!
Hi Sarah! Welcome to the site! :) And good luck on your journey. :)

I feel like the best advice I could give anyone is to get Alissa's book and DVD....they give you everything you need to know to get started and stay raw. GOOD Luck....you'll love her book.

I am waiting until payday to get that book. :) I have wanted it for a loooong time.
BTW.. I am happily snacking on some Apples and Raw almond butter... yummm!!!

Aloha and Welcome to RFT!!! How exciting for you!! Im so glad you will be getting Alissa's book and the DVD.... these were the two best tools I had when I first went raw..... (and ACTUALLY .... ARE STILL my two best tools!!)
You are doing great... and pushing forward - and that's wonderful... one day at a time.... I think it's really important that you are moving forward at the pace that is comfortable for you ... in that there is success....
so blessings to you ....
