"Wow you look incredible!"
My sister's friend came over today and that was the first thing she said when she saw me. I've lost 9 lbs so far and I guess it shows. lol
Then later she came upstairs (my sister lives in the basement) and saw me eating Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms (from Alissa's book) and said, "Ah, now I see how you lost the weight." So I started telling her about being raw. She asked me "So when can you eat cooked foods again?"
I sighed and told her that this was more than a diet. I told her that I don't plan on ever eating raw foods again. I'm not doing this just to lose weight. I'm doing it for my overall health, which includes losing weight. I explained that I enjoy the food so much that I don't miss cooked foods.
She had a look on her face like she thought it was ridiculous but didn't say anything. Then she proceeded to tell me of her "diet" which made me wonder what she was thinking.
She fasts the first week. Then eats only one meal a day the second week. The third week she eats 2 meals a day. The fourth she pigs out. Then she starts all over again. My husband and I agree that she's going to do more harm than good that way. But she wouldn't listen to us when we told her that.
I'll take my healthy lifestyle over her diet anyday.
