You did a great job and I'm sure you're feeling just wonderful right now. I hope that coming off of the fast goes just as well (the hardest part for me, which I fail each time).
Enjoy your trip to England!

Congrats Fragola!! Very good job :)
Grats to you! Glad to hear it work out so wonderfully for you. :)
You are an inspiration to us all :O)
Great job Fragola!! So now you must post another picture!!
Thank you all, thank you so much for all the support!!
I had a great weekend, and eating again is fantastic!
I am feeling a bit frustrated today, as it seems that I have already put on almost 4 pounds during the weekend but I don't think I have eaten too much!
I have always been a fruit lover, not liking greens so much, but after my fast I craved greens very badly, so I have eaten mostly salads made of: green leaves, tomatoes, avocado, sweet corn. No dressing at all, no nuts. I have had salad for breakfast, unbelievable! I haven't eaten so much fruit, maybe 5-6 fruits during the two days. I have been a bit greedy with meedjol dates, about 5 or 6 per day, so that could be the problem. Ah, I almost forgot, I have eaten olives, I have craved olives very much!
I am glad that I am loving my raw food a lot more, all my cravings for bad stuff are gone completely.
Another interesting thing that this fast have done to me is that my BM are so more regular. I have always had problems with my BM, now I am having two BM a day!! I have the feeling that I eat food-I digest it-I eliminate the waste quickly without retaining anything!
I can say that a period of fast can really help to become raw, to eliminate cravings, to eat more simply. At least, it seems that have worked for me!
I hope that I will be able to lose some more pound, then I will post a new picture, hoping to see some difference from the last one :)
Thank you again for all your help!!
What a testimony! A recipe for raw success! Start out with a 14-21 day juice fast! Don't worry about the weight, it will fluctuate, but as long as you are 90-100% raw it will eventually end up where it should. Are you going to fast on a regular basis?
