I would need so much more information from you like how much weight do you have to lose to begin with? 4 pounds is not BAD! And as far as cholesterol goes, how long have you had it?
Its only been two weeks!!!!
You cant expect to abuse your body and be eating the way you have been and having illness as long as you have and expect to be totally healed within 2 weeks!!
Sometimes people call me or write me and ask me why (after having been living a certain lifestyle for 30. 40 or 50 years) their body is not healed of ailments, dropped all its weight and completely changed already - and then i find out they have only been doing this for a week or two! Give it time. You cant expect your body after not taking care of it for that long to heal overnight, have patience!
I know it can be exciting anticipating the changes and i know that i say in my book that within a week or two you can se some major changes but things like cholesterol take time, your body needs to clean out and heal, give it a chance!
Also, i dont know what your eating and would have to have you write out everything your doing and eating and see where your at so i really cant give you tons of advise as to how to alter your diet.
Gisel, I just posted this and read it over, I didnt mean to come across harsh to you. I think its so great that youve been doing this 100 percent for 2 weeks! Just keep it up, you will see major changes soon! Sometimes we just dont see how silly it is that after so many years of not taking care of ourselves we expect to start and have instant results when its taken us a long time usually to get us into the predicament that we are in.
This is great that you posted this as im sure others get impatient with this process as well. Once you start to find the truth and feel better we want it to happen right away!
Please keep up the good work and keep us posted! Also it is helpful to keep a journal as sometimes we have an easier time seeing other peoples process rather then our own. I bet you already have some wonderful changes happening!?

Hi, I think that Alissa's comments are right on. I wonder if you have listed all the things that have changed up to this point. Like for me I was sleeping finally for the first time in years. At the point where you are I believe I had lost about 4 or 5 pounds also. My skin started clearing up, I went off of one of my medications and I had less pain. I also noticed more energy, it was easier to get started in the morning and my head was clearer (thinking I mean) and I remember everyone saying how happy I seemed. Today is the 101 day of my journey and I am still waiting for some changes to take place. I am prepared for at least a year of raw fooding before I even expect to be healed completely and that may be too soon. You have to be patient. This may be a race but it is not the 100 yard dash it is a long and sometimes slow marathon. And really it is a new way of life not a temporary diet. But journaling even the minor changes is really important, because now I look back at what I have written and I really have made some major changes. Like now I am off of all my medications, that is like 6 or 7 that I took on a daily basis for almost 14 years. and I have lost 20 pounds, went from a size 14 to a size 8. I have had a number of healing crisises and have had many of my major symptoms resurface and then disappear forever. It seems like my weakest points in my body show themselves as they are healing. Don't forget sometimes we get worse before we get better, but once that passes we are so much better. At this point I will never turn back. I have had impatience as well but hey sit back and enjoy the time it takes you are going to spend that time anyway. Better you do it taking the best care of your body that you can.Take care and keep up the good work.
