I've been an omnivore most of my life (about 90%). A lot of my diet used to include McDonnalds, pizza, ice cream...junk basically. I tried to eat "healthy" (ie. no junk) and suceeded for quite a while.
My problem is I keep on trying to go from an omni diet to a raw vegan diet all at once. I want to be raw so bad but I can't resist certain temptations.
So here's my plan. Go vegetarian, then vegan, then raw vegan. I need to break it down. I've already eliminated 95% of the junk. Chocolate seems to be the hardest to get rid of. But I'm looking at alternatives (such as Alissa's fudge balls).
My hope is that in about a year I will be 100% raw. That's my goal.
I need to remember that sometimes you just need to take baby steps.
