Hope I can do that in 10 years time!!
I will try and work the time zones out, Blazin'jane, and think of you during your day!! well done.
Let us know how you get on.
Do you think, Iluvmamgos, the same fruits will be around in 150 years time??
Imagine a world without mangoes and coconuts, and almonds and cashews, bananas and carob!! I would be starving.:)
I know ... Green Smoothies!!!
I agree this group is way too quiet, or are there so few of us?
I'm gonna be 51 soon. I'll post my b4 and afters next month when I hit raw for a year.
I would love to hear from more over 50's what benefits you have had being raw. For me it has been:
Better eyesight (no more reading glasses)
Seasonal allergies gone
Brain fog gone
Need less sleep and sleep better
Don't get sick (or I can knock it out in a few hours before it sets in)
There's more too but better memory isn't one of them LOL!
54 here until next month...and loving this green life. i've been raw more on than off for the past four years and still love to read the benefits just posted by marin mom. i too have experienced them all. happy day! xox
My heart is singing for joy this morning! A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil's mind, and behold, all things are changed!
I'm 52. I went raw in December. I sleep better, my skin looks great, my eyes are clear, my elimination is problem-free, my energy level is high and I've kept my weight stable. (I didn't go raw for weight-loss purposes,but lost a couple of pounds at first.) I have discovered really great food--that is the major thing.
If we feel as good as we do now, wouldn't that be interesting? Two centuries here! My mother lived almost one. Can you imagine all she saw and went through?

You go, Blazin Jane!!!! Good role model for all of us. I just borrowed a bike and started riding yesterday! I rode 2 times about 10 minutes each. The fact that I can walk today and don't hurt all over is VERY encouraging! I can't wait to hear how you do!
Weight 2005 256
Starting Raw 02/08 219
CW 228 (left raw for THREE YEARS WOW...on my way back)
Blazin' Jane that's truly amazin' !!!
Good luck in the race!
I'm 54 and will have to use you as my role model!
Hooray for raw foods--truly healthful and life supporting!
I'm back and impressed . . .
with those who are 60+ and biking and those 200 and still livin'
I'm 52 for a couple more days and have decided it is time to redeicate myself to 100% raw -- it is my birthday gift to me. Dang, I hope I don't spoil my own gift.
And after reading about Blazin Jane, I am tempted to dust off my bike and see if it still fits -- it's been a few years (try 10+) since I've checked out that seat. I remember it rather painful. Wonder if I could find a real cushie seat like I had years ago that the dog decided was tasty.
Back when I was 100% raw,I felt so good; t is time to go back there. My goal is better eyesight and darker hair. Is that too much to ask for? I know one the best remedies would be green smoothies. I need to convince me that they are wonderful.
Boy it feels good to be back! Thanks for the encouragement! Bet you didn't know you did that did you? ;)
Was your mother a raw foodist?? Or vegan?

Benefits Of Being Raw Over 50
I'm 51 and I truly believe that I'm now getting younger and younger, thanks to being raw.
Benefits for me are: a youthful complexion, glossy hair, heaps of energy, a sense of centredness and such optimism!
A true benefit for me was having the confidence to start my own website!
