First of all sorry if my english isn't so good. (I'm from sweden) The raw food diet is very unusual in Sweden (I don't think any of my freidens knows that there is a raw food diet!) well, my question is how can a day look like? what time you eat and what and how much?
I had read a very good book about raw food so I decided to try that to my school start agian.

There are other members from Sweden here.
Here is a link to them and other posts that mention the word
To get a good idea of what people eat it is a good idea to read peoples journals. Some of them are pretty good.
fruit mix in morning
snk: banana with almond butter
lunch; salad or more fruit
dinner; always some kinf of veggie plate
snk; fruit mix again (pineapple, mellon, oranges , mago)

I would suggest reading some of the journals, which can be found here: http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/photopost/showmembers.php?si=&perpage=15&sort=1&cat=500&ppuser=
Many people list what they eat everyday. I have given you the link to the most active.
I would also recommend getting Alissa's book, "Living on live foods." Even more so, I recommend you get the DVDs too. She shows how simple it is to prepare raw foods that remarkably resemble cooked foods. It's great for beginners.
Your English is fine and very understandable. Don't worry about it. Even we native speakers flub up once in a while.
Go ahead and try it! Hopefully you'll get over the detoxification before school starts.

It looks like we had the same idea about the journals. I hadn't thought about the search feature.
The link to your journal isn't clickable to me. :confused:

Dont know why it stoped working?
My day is something like this: Several glasses of water before breakfast. A large serving size wooden bowl of one kind of cut up fruit for breakfast. I prefer watermelon but it is the wrong time of year here for that. More water later. Lunch is the same size bowl (actually the same bowl) filled with salad, maybe half full of greens with one tomato and 1/2 cucumber cut up on it and maybe a green onion. More water. Dinner lately is a large cucumber cut into spears with nut and seed butter spread on one side. I do not drink with meals but about half way between.
I make my own nut and seed butter by grinding a cup of any nut the coffee grinder then dumping it into the blender. I do the same with 1 cup of any seed I happen to have. Then add 1 cup of water to the blender and blend till smooth. Or leave slightly chunky whichever I feel like. I keep this in a glass jar in the refridgerator. Can't tell you how long it will be good, mine is usually gone in a week or so.
Hope you find the right way for you,

I don't know either. I've found your journal by going to the 30 day challenge thread and going alphabetacal.
Try re-editing your link. When I right clicked and selected "properties" I got:

The best idea is to get Alissa's book. When you first begin eating raw, it is important NOT to compare yourself to people who have been eating raw for a long time. You see, the longer you are 100%, the more your eating evolves and changes. So, if you try to pattern yourself after someone who has been raw for a while, there is a greater risk of you not being able to succeed at eating all raw since your body has not yet adapted to the purifying effects of raw and living foods. Many people have succeeded by using Alissa's method which is detailed in her book. If you follow her one-month plan, you will know exactly what to prepare and eat every day.
However, since her recipes are based on American tastes, you may not care for them. I think it's a good idea to communicate with other people in Sweden who are eating this way.
Spending time on this site reading old threads will really help you, too.
If you would like recommendations on what books are good, just ask. Everyone here is very helpful.
Best of luck!!!

You can progress any way you prefer.
I started my transition to raw by switching to raw breakfasts and lunches, keeping my dinners cooked. This way, it was easier for me at start. Then, I switched to raw dinners.
As I was a busy, working person, I did not have much time for recipes, so I was taking bags of un-cut fruit and vegies to work, and simply ate them like that. Or, I would make simple salads at work. In the evening, I would make salads or play with some recipes.
I guess I am one of those who never did much gourmet recipes (time factor), so I ate more simply to start with. I occasionally played with some, and had quite some fun with making raw lasagne, pasta, soups. So, if you want, opportunities are endless, as far as gourmet. But, you can as well eat simply. Whatever suits you!
I suggest that you go easy and do not combine too many hard to digest, or not going together well, ingredients in those recipes, to avoid digestion problems (bloating etc). It is useful to learn some simple food combining rules.
