I just wanted to make light of this really quickly. I don’t have too much time right now to be on the boards but I do check it off and on all the time, even if its just for a few minutes here and there and every time I come on I seem to be hearing all these things like: fruit keeps me from losing weight, I don’t eat any nuts anymore, I have to count calories into fitday in order to keep track and lose weight., etc…
If you don’t agree with me fine, find your way, its ok and everyone needs to do what’s right for them, but for the new people here or the people that have been on here for a while but still think they need these silly rules and cant seem to find success with raw let me say once again (as I know you oldies here know this is my pet peeve, lol!) don’t say that this diet does not work when your not DOING IT!!!!! Please people!
Don’t go out for pizza or have a steamed potato and rice and then say you need to cut out fruit! Don’t be eating a cooked meal once a week and then blame the nuts for no weight loss!!!!
If you choose to eat 70-80-90 percent raw, that’s fine, but you cannot say that eating these raw items on a raw diet don’t work for you unless you are RAW!
And calories are not calories. Someone posted in a thread that no matter what you eat if you take in too many calories you will gain and if you eat less you will lose. This is not accurate.
There are about 80 grams of fat in my date nut torte and although I only had about 10 - 15 pounds to lose when I first went raw, I lost it eating this every night! So stop counting CALORIES, FATS, CARBS AND PROTEIN!!!!!!! And GO RAW!!!!! 100% raw for 30 days, that’s it, just make the commitment and you will see results!
Ok, enough of the exclamation points. But really, I want you all to succeed in this. That’s why I wrote the book and made the DVDs, but its amazing to me when people claim it doesn’t work but then come to find out they aren’t doing it.
This doesn't mean you will never fail or you have to be perfect. It does mean however, that if you want results, stop lying to yourself and realize that if you want to actually see and feel results with this in a big way you need to do it!
