My name is Will. I live in NJ.
I am new to raw foods, I have been eating a good amount of raw meals since April. The month of July I have been fully raw for about 14 of the 19 days so far. I feel great. Since February I have been vegan. January 1st, 2012 I started eating a healthier SAD diet.
Since 1/1/12 I have lost 70pds, I have about 70 more to go. I feel great, look great, and my mind is clearer than ever. Concentrating on the now!!!
I have been struggling with raw recipes and I am looking for an outlet for new recipes and positive vibes!!!

You have made an awesome decision. Congrats! Here are a few sites to look at:
You may want to invest in a couple of books...check out Alissa's.

Thank you very much. After weeks of searches, I have not stumbled upon those sites yet. They look like very valuable resources. I am grateful.

I have found the most on the rawfoodrecipes. I eat simply though. Mainly I juice and eat fruit and greens. I eat nuts once in a while but they are heavy and hard to digest for me. I am now on a salsa kick with avocados, mangoes, cucumbers, red onion, jalapenos, cilantro, organic corn and lime juice (I buy mostly organic but corn is critical since if not organic is very likely to be GMO). I also have zucchini pasta with a touch of olive oil and basil. But normally, I just eat it all plain.
Keep your fats down as a rule and if you are hungry, eat more fruit!

Wow you are all very encouraging! So nice, I have found a good place! I will definitely post some before and afters. Although finding a before might not be all that easy since I avoided cameras for a long time.
