View Full Version : The eyes have it
07-21-2005, 10:17 PM
Just wanted to post a compliment I got today from my boyfriend...about my iridescent eyes. :)
I bought a book called "RAW FOOD real world" by Matthew Kinney and Sarma Melngailis. It's a great, fancy, raw recipe book that is pretty enough to be a coffee table book. Anyway, there is a comment made in there that raw foodists have almost iridescent eyes because through raw foods more enzymes are being consumed, more disease is being eradicated and your body is being cleansed. They say this difference appears in the eyes. From the book---"Your glowing eyes reflect this internal improvement, outer beauty increasing in ratio to inner beauty. On a raw diet, the color of your irises can even change, becoming lighter and exposing a broader stratosphere of hues."
Anyway, I had told my boyfriend about this when I read the book, but tonight we had finished working out and were talking. He paused and just seemed to be looking at me really deeply. I said, "what are you looking at? My iridescent eyes?" And he laughed and said yes! I think they are lighter. Really.
So, anyway, it made me smile big. :D
Anybody else hear of eating raw foods affecting your eye appearance?

It's funny to see this post because I just finished watching Introduction To Living Foods Volume 1 with Elaina Love & I was noticing how incredibly indescribably beautiful her eyes looked!

What a nice compliment! I sure hope it happens to me. My eyes have had a decidedly dull look for a few years now.

Yeah, who knows? I do think my eyes look better but I'm waiting for my hair to turn back to it's natural color so I don't have to color it. :D For a while I considered the natural hair dyes, etc. but then decided oh well, I guess if I take in any chemicals it will just have to be the hair dye.
Have a good day everyone.

I am new here.
I have been thinking about the point with the eyes as well, but came to the conclusion that raw food is just a tiny part of the "glowing eye" thing.
I think what makes the eyes glow is more the "energy of enthusiasm" that people who deal with raw foods feel/see.
The authors mentioned have a nice raw restaurant with delicious food, that I frequently visit. But I think it is more the enthusiasm and satisfaction that brings glow into the eyes.
I think there are people who have glow in their eyes who don't know anything about raw foods, but who have something that they are content with or so.

I think Elaina Love is gorgeous! (I can say that, I'm a guy) Incredible hair. She uses honey and lemon as shampoo. I started using that too. But for some reason I doubt I will ever be gorgeous :D

the enthusiasm and satisfaction that brings glow into the eyes
I just love that! :)
Leiloshka~what a lovely thing to hear from your honey. The eyes are the window to the soul. Perhaps raw is better than windex..lol
I am so pleased for you.
I have read that a raw diet can improve your eyesight.
I didnt know it worked on our honeys too! ;)

This is amazing. I was surfing another raw site, when the thought occurred to me, " I wonder if anyone on Raw Food Talk has had Shazzie-esque eye color change experiences." I don't think anyone can deny that Shazzie has experience an actual "brightening" in color. :eek: Absolutely gorgeous! :) So I come back to ask the question, and find this link! As an AA I am really anxious to here about anyone with brown eyes. My eyes are really pretty clear right now, but I'm wondering if color change/brightening is even possible for brown eyers like myself. (Never been a fan of colored contact lenses).

I think it's amazing how diet can affect so many things, mental health, phsyical health, inner and outer beauty. :)

I'm thinking you already know you don't "have" to color it. My hair is graying and I absolutely love it. I'm thankful I have hair; I am constantly getting compliments on it; I haven't died it for years and even when I worked AT a salon where they kept asking me what "we" were going to do about the color I said ~ "What? you mean my natural highlights?" The way I look at it, nature has not made any mistakes w/ me. I've made many myself ~ hanging out in places where people smoked; eating not-so good foods ~ or stuff I don't even consider food now.... yet, if my hair turns back to it's original color that's fine ~ if not, that's fine also. :) (just throwing out a different viewpoint)
.... I'm waiting for my hair to turn back to it's natural color so I don't have to color it. :D .

I have that book you mentioned in your original post and I think it is really good and will definately check out their resturant when I am in NY and might go to NY just to check out their reasturant. I'm glad your guy could see the brightness in your eyes they are the window to the soul. And Sweetgoddess you are too funny, improve the eyesight of our significant others. lol.

Leiloshka: That's awesome--great that he noticed! What color are your eyes? How longhave you been raw? :)
About brown eyes changing: I used to have medium brown eyes with lighter gold sunbursts around the pupil. Now, they're definitely closer to being hazel, with bits of green and gold throughout. My husband looked at me a month ago and said, "Your eyes! They're really getting lighter!"
I doubted it at first, but when I looked in the mirror the other day, I realized they're not the same color. I've decided to consider them hazel from now on.
Now if only the whites would lose their bloodshot look... ;)

Misslinda, my eyes are hazel. They have lightened up though and are getting more greenish I think. Also, they just look clearer...like you can see more depth in the irises.
Yeah, Joy, my whites are usually bloodshot too. I think it's from not enough sleep. Well, I know it is. :)
Revell, I know I could not color my hair and one day I won't, but I'm just not ready to "go gray" yet. Who knows? Maybe one day it will be like the living foods...I'll just decide, today is the day I stop coloring. I already did that with birth control pills after my REALLY light period. I thought....if this is what my periods are like on raw foods, I don't need these pills anymore. I was on them for my heavy flow and cramps that always came with the periods. So, hopefully getting those hormones out of my body will cause changes too. Although, I'm not sure what to expect, if anything.
Oh, and August 15 will be my two month raw food anniversary. :D
:rolleyes: Well I have eyes that change colour on a fairly regular basis. Most of the time they are light green w/ gold flecks, but when I am feeling playful and full of child like inocence my eyes seem to change to a light blue, or so I am told. By the time I get in front of a mirror they are green to me and always have been. The colour has lightened up over the years and I am looking forward to testing your theory on my eyes and will report back with any changes. I have only been raw for a week and have had a slippery weekend away, well the raw wagon was slippery, my weekend was fab. I look forward to noticing any changes.
As for hair colour, I too am embrassing turning silver. I deserve and am honoured by every silver hair that my children have given me. I have a girlfriend that recently asked me to colour her hair as she has beautiful black locks with a small silver patch right in the center of her part. I think it looks wonderful and told her that one of her friends that doesn't love her just the way she is would have to do it. ( she got her husband to do it snicker snicker :) )

Hi, I have brown eyes but have been told they are a green colour sometimes.
To revvell post, I had my hair colour changed from dark brown to blond, and guess what, my natural colour looked much better. Great that you can accept hair colour change gracefully. I am happy I am alive and that there is still hair on my head.[male gender] I am sure their are benefits for males and females living on living foods concerning our hair as well.
