Raw @ 20 before and after~2 months & 6-8 months
I didn't even know the raw lifestyle existed until a year ago! It is really encouraging to know we can age with grace and beauty as opposed to going the very predictable route of the SAD.
Seeing all of your beautiful pics really ingrains the proof of this lifestyle. Below are two before pics, then in order at 2 months, 6 months, and 8 months.
I hope these can add to all the inspiring photos here that serve as motivation to stay on board for when anyone gets the urge to go back to their old lifestyle.
I am now 26 and look much better than I did at 20???
Wow, I am truly amazed. You DO look better !!!
~I am only interested in results. If something works, then an explanation is really just an intellectual exercise. ~
You are stunning raw...it looks wonderful on you....you're shining so brightly in the most recent pic. Wow!!! Beyond inspiring. Thank you for sharing.
You look great and your glow really does shine through.
You look so Good..................Keep up the RAW Power! :)
Walking the Path of Radiant Health and Vibrant Energy. :p
I may Slip, Trip, Stumple or Fall, Leaves of despair may even cover the path but, as I get up, brush myself off, remain still, & wait for God's Love to reveal the path
I Am Able to STAY the COURSE!

Love and Light,
you look !!! really great. just goes to show you... even you skinny girls look better on raw... *giggling*... cause so often we see before and during pics of people like me... who release a bucket load of weight and of course we look better. but the proof is really in your pudding... cause your pudding is
You look wonderful, but even more, you look so present and at peace with yourself.
You look lovely....Congrats to you for taking charge of your body now vs. 20 years from now...

Our PLANET is so Precious. God created this and its up to us to respect it. Did you know the Water we use today is the same water Moses used? RECYCLE everything you can at least once.... Let's keep this going...........
I'm so impressed. And jealous!!!
I want to steal your entire raw diet sketch and try it in hopes I can get such a gorgeous tan myself...muahahaha!!! ;)
I'm convinced that tans are the ONLY thing raw food CAN'T give - I've been so stoked to notice that I, too, at age 23 look healthier and more beautiful on raw food than I did as a 16 yr old... or even a 21 yr old!!
You are not responsible for others reactions to you or assumptions about you. You are only responsible for your response to others.
Thank you all ladies for your wonderful comments!
I guess you can't tell so much in the pics but I lost about 15 pounds I think. And the tan is from living in Central America, although I slather on sunscreen every day and try to hide from it but it's impossible~
It's good to look at the pics on this thread because it reminds us why we do this. How good we feel on the inside shines on the outside!
If I could just give one quick shred of advice, your toxic friends will be the ones who make fun of you and try to get you to eat cookies and french fries--Don't listen to them!! Your real friends will encourage you or just act normal when they eat around you. I know if I would have listened to 99% of my friends' comments I would never be where I'm at today. Luckily this Raw Food Talk is full of good friends!
Kris, You look fantastic! I commend you also for finding raw food at such a young age. I wish I had known about it in my 20s! Congrats, and thanks for posting to keep the rest of us inspired!
