That is a great sequence of pictures. Timed nicely so you can really see the difference. Thanks for sharing you are doing very well! Looking forward to the next update.
Here's an example of my daily diet:
B: Chia pudding with almond milk, bananas, raisins, honey OR buckwheat granola with banana AND a shot of E3 Live
L: Apples and almond butter or 16 oz of juice
D: Massaged kale salad w avocado, or something more exciting I've made in the dehydrator
I snack on dried fruit, nuts, seeds... nothing fancy! I drink a lot of tea right now because it is so cold here.
You look great and it's very inspiring
Thanks for sharing the nuts & bolts of your raw life-style, Amanda. I, too, have a long history of disordered eating and have found that consuming high amounts of raw living food helps immensely. I look forward to hearing of your continued progress. Blessings to you on the journey!
You look awesome!!!!!
Rawesome transformation. I look forward to future pic updates
Walnutty - To answer your question, I have a long history of disordered eating so I think that might contribute to the fact that I don't eat very much. I have associated eating with gaining weight (and that was driven into me by abusive people in my childhood and adolesence) so I think that part of me fears eating a normal amount of food. I understand that I could eat a LOT of raw foods and be healthy, but part of me has yet to learn that. I'm definitely going through a transformative process so I try to trust that my eating patterns will change and that I will be able to eat more in the future, and have more normal eating patterns in general.
New haircut and updated photos for you all! :)
Wow, an amazing transformation!!! You look radiant. I know you have a history of eating disorder but I have found that I lose weight faster if I eat a piece of fruit or something every two hours, even if I'm not hungry. I know it will take you a bit to get there but just thought I'd share and maybe give you a little gentle nudge. Sush an ispiration. Keep it up, you're doing rawsome!
I am so proud of you. Your face has slimmed down quite a bit. YEAH go Amanda.

Tracey - Thanks! I think so too.. isn't it amazing? I feel like I just look like myself but I think I am starting to really look like I feel I look, you know what I mean? Like I look like my healthiest, true self. It's pretty awesome.
