View Full Version : Logging In and Raw Ratio

I definitely believe that the time you spend reading the boards, contributing, learning from others has a direct impact on your success with the raw lifestyle. I have had trouble with sticking to it and it also correlates with time spent away from my computer. The more I am here, and learning and finding new approaches, getting great recipes and super support, the more successful I am.
So, I'm back to spending some time here at RFT! I still have to keep it in check and not spend too much time, I do have to keep up with other aspects of my life....work, housekeeping, taking care of the family. But I've been filling my head with so much raw the last couple of days that it just feels fantabulous!!

For me, reading a lot of forums keeps me motivated in most stuff I do. Im pretty much a forum junky.

I am a forum junky, too. The problem is that I can't use that as an excuse not to get school work done- LOL So, I use this kind of research as a way to relax, and I do think that it will impact how well I do. Day 2 of going raw, and I can do it! :)

Yes, yes YES! I completely agree. Community support is essential to maintaining any lifestyle. I love it here!

The percentage of raw food in my diet is sooo much higher after I joined this board. The monthly raw challenge takes it up a notch further. I am not 100% all the time, but I am getting sooo much closer.
Thank you Alissa for this site and thanks to all of you for your insight and suggestions on this raw journey!

I agree with everyone. Forums are essential, especially since on the 'outside' we are usually on our own! Most people probably think I am just another 'hippie musician'! :p:p

RFT definitely keeps me motivated. Journaling is a big part of my focus. The community support is priceless. I appreciate the recipes and how they inspire me to try new things. It's a constant learning experience. My raw library is extensive and has been a valuable tool, but it doesn't give me any feedback.

One thing that helps me is eating simple but on the other hand making a couple fun recipes a couple times a week....usually a dessert and some dressing for my salads. Having a treat always around and something good to go on my salads has been key for me.
