I am 34 and from the Chicago area. I found this site/new way of eating when my husband's co-worker saw his diabetes medication on his desk and gave him a 10 minute sales pitch on the raw way of eating. After about five minutes of research he found Alissa's site and I ordered the book. This was last week. This week I am buying cookbooks and appliances. =)
I am currently almost 300lbs and suffering from many heath inconveniences. I have to admit as a meat, pasta and everything bad for you lifestyle I am a bit scared of this new way of living but hopeful that this way of living will make my life much much easier.
I absolutely look forward to learning more about this way of living and to making the transition to raw foods.
