View Full Version : Just wondering
Ok, so i'm new to raw, this is only my second day. But if I ate raw for every meal, except dinner do you think I would still lose weight? Like, im thinking of making it half raw, and half whatever my mom makes.
I'm 5'4 and 140, and I really want to lose at least 20 pounds before the summer. Thanks guys :)

Hi Sari! Any step is the right step in the right direction :D. I really do think you'll lose some weight and feel great when eating raw two out of three times a day. Worked for me! Going raw and detoxing is also a big step, so I do think it's good to go slow. It especially works to keep the peace with the family, also.
My advice if you do eat cooked is to just stay away from SAD food you know isn't so good for the body. Cut out bread and refined sugars and weird preservative fake food stuff, but go ahead and eat the cooked dinner your Mom serves you with love and care. Remember that food tastes the best when you enjoy it. From my experience, you will love your body and see the results so much more if you just enjoy life and enjoy what you put into it.
Love and Happy New Year!

you can go ahead and try it and like Stella mentioned it is a step in the right direction. The only possible issue I could think of is that a cooked dinner might be counterintuitive. If the dinner isn't too late, so as not to eat dinner then go off to bed shortly after, then there shouldn't be any issues with losing weight. I'm just thinking that a cooked meal without sufficient activity afterwards might store more calories than burn, especially if you were to have a late dinner. Now if you've got a crazy metabolism like I do, you shouldn't have any issues at all. I couldn't gain any substantial weight if I tried but when I attempted going raw for the first time, I started losing weight! So, even if you're already fairly skinny, losing weight on a raw diet is not very difficult in my experience.
