View Full Version : Just Ordered Book and CDS

My name is Sonja. I am 35. I just ordered Alissa's book and CD and am very excited about getting started. About 3 months ago I went to a naturopathic doctor to help me recover from Bulimia (20 year battle, 3 hospitalizations) and I have not purged in 2 months. Vitamins and nutrition were the answer. Truly a miracle. I went vegetarian 2 months ago and love it, and now I just found out about the raw diet. I'm going to prepare myself for the next month and then jump in!!!
Well done and good luck, Sonja. Eating raw food can be challenging but the health benefits make it worthwhile. Alissa's book and DVD will help you immensely in following the Raw path. One thing I will say to you now is please do not let pursuing 100% raw become an obsession in its self. The more raw you can eat, the better, and if you succeed in going 100% without difficulty, then great, but your emotional happiness is important too, and it's a balancing act, so if it proves difficult, stick with it but retain your sense of perspective - we are all human!
I wish you all the best and I look forward to seeing you around the forum.

Yipee Sonar! Welcome to the "A" team--the book is f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c-!!! It's like having a pair of nice shoes.......I keep polishing the glossy cover with my shammy :p seems silly but it's a wealth of information that you will cherish forever.
Congrats on your working at recovering from you ed--that was along time! I was 17 years into my ed (anorexia with bulimic tendencies) and it seems like a dream come true to find a way of eating without feeling guilty,depressed, too in contorl or out of control--we're FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :p ;) :)

Welcome to the forum Sonja! SO glad you have come so far healthwise, good for you and for your efforts.
You will love Alissa's book and dvd, and heck, you will love Alissa.
It truly is a great intro to raw, and I am sure you will find much support on this forum also.

Welcome. Balance is the key to being successful with a raw diet. Don't work too hard at it, just enjoy.
Would I be too nosey to ask you what type of vitamin supplements your holistic doc recommended? I'm asking because I've been dealing with stress and anxiety (probably because my life is a little chaotic raising twins and a husband!) and he's working on finding the best supplements for me. I just started a few types a couple days ago. You can send me a personal message if you'd like.
Anyway, just curious.
Good luck and hope we can help you.
