Hi Again!! I am Lori, a returning to raw person, ;D I'm 43 and a Type 2 Diabetic. This will be my 3rd try at Raw Vegan. My first try was wonderful until my diabetes meds started making me sick. I stopped taking them and felt better. Then my sugars started becoming very irregular. I stopped raw for awhile to try to fix my sugars. I have not be successful in that area. I have decided to return to raw because I have never felt better than when I was raw.
I have made many lifestyle changes in my time away. I think now is the right time. I am a bit nervous, but excited at the same time. I look forward to meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones. I am so happy to see that many of you are still here. :)

Hey there Lori! Welcome back to RAW! You may want to invest in Alissa's book. It's very helpful. I would also recommend checking out treeoflife.nu and gabrielcousens.com. He has a specific raw foods program designed especially for diabetics.

Just wanted to wish you much success on your raw journey. BTW, was your username picked because you own boxers? Just wondering, because I presently have two of my own. ~ C

Thank you all. I do have Alissa's book. I did a very successful 4 months 100% raw a couple of years ago. Then my body changed somehow. I want that RAW feeling back. I am so very tired all the time.
Thank you for the pages regarding raw for diabetics. I am going to look at them right after I post this. :)))
I do have boxers. Two of them named Daisy and Boomer. They want me to get my energy back too.
Thanks for the welcome.
ps. My tongue is coated today. lol I know what that means. ;)
