new raw food teen :)
hi everyone! so I introduced myself in the introduction forum but I though that I'd post on this one, too :)
My name is Abigail Jane (AJ) and I am 16. This is my 26th day being raw and I love it! Whoohoo! I'm just looking for some support to help me stay on track... because I have slipped up a few times.
I'm looking forward to "meeting" you guys!
BTW, my blog is: http://rawballerina.blogspot.com/
Welcome AJ! Good for you for going raw! My advice as far as temptation goes is to cut out the cooked foods. For me, the more cooked foods I eat, the more I want to eat. And make sure you're eating enough - I find that if I go too long in-between meals, I'll get hungry and consider anything that's around. So now, I eat smaller meals, more often so I'm never really "hungry".
There is only one forum and many sections to it. Please, don't repost. All the threads go into one main section that anyone who is interested in will look at.
Congrats on going raw at your age. Lots of support here.... not a lotta guys though.... there are a few. ;)
Hi! I'm 17, and haven't ever been able to go more than a week on raw, so congrats to you for that!
I try to eat as much raw as I can, but my family still hardly supports my veganism, so it's hard... Plus, it's so expensive :S
I try to eat at least 80% raw though ^.^
I'm a 13 year old who is starting raw tomorrow. I have severe asthma and I hope by going raw I will be able to stop taking my medications and be able to be physically active.
Hey!! I'm 15 and I'm so excited theres actually people kind of my age going raw like me because everyone tells me i'm crazy :) I try to eat raw as much as i can but my family gets mad at me sometimes because they think i'm weird and stuff :P
Im 13 and in interested in going raw. My sister is Power puff:). we are doing this together.
That is very commendable that you all are taking charge of your health at such a young age! Powder puff and Passion-fruit, are you twins? How sweet of you to support your sister, Passion.
Hey Im 14 and I've been raw for 6 months I think its been so far,
