An Africian American Male who went RAW!!! My hubby is SHOCKED!!! :eek: I Showed him your photos and he couldn't believe it! You look FABULOUS!!!!!
Congratulations! Keep up the good work.
Wonderful. Congrats on the transformation.
Ummmm if you're single I have 2-3 intelligent, health conscious and beautiful friends I could introduce you to. ;)
wow wow WOW! What a stunning transformation. How long have you been 90% raw for, and what does your excercise routine look like?
Thanks all. I started devoting myself to raw in Dec of '07. Although I used to eat some raw foods before that, I still ate mostly very large portions of processed foods & animal products. After doing some research about health, nutrition, and the U.S. food industry, it was a no-brainer to conclude that going raw was better for my overall health.
Shashibala: No I wasn't a runner before going raw. In fact I could only run about 2 blocks without getting winded and sore. But I kept at it because I'm a true believer that our bodies are designed for exercise and not sitting down most of the time. Now I run at least 4 to 6 miles 3/4 times a week and participate in running events monthly. I'm up to 18 events so far and trying to get to at least 20 running events for '08:
Feb 9 - 4 mile run (done)

Rawstrength: I've been 90% raw since April '08. I usually try to get some type of exercise in everyday. I don't do gyms because I get distracted too easily. I have weights and a treadmill (which I rarely use because I'm an outdoor runner) at home, plus I don't have any "set" days that I only do certain exercises. I like to have the freedom to mix things up. So my routine would be as thus:
Weights-2 to 3 days a week
Running-3 or 4 days a week
Core workouts 2 to 3 days a week.
LifeAgift: Taken. Sorry
Congratulations on your transformation.

Wow, your skin is just glowing now.
You look fabulous! One HOT TAMALE!
Congrats on such an incredible transformation!
You give me hope!! I was hoping you weren't always an exerciser. This means I can be one too! I've lost 60 pounds so far with just walking the dog!:D
I'm working on upping my physical activity and gaining strength and endurance. Thanks for the inspiration!
he gives me hope, too! being able to run only 2 blocks painfully resonates with me. :eek:
oh yeah. pking - hate to say this, but your smile looks just as wonderful then as it does now. some things just never change despite what diet you're on i guess. :)
