March 1st - Day 1 (or Day 29 depending)
Welcome to the Raw Challenge here at Raw Food Talk.
Come share your experience as you make a 30 day commitment to eating raw live foods!
I was raw for several weeks but fell off the wagon. I plan to start over again March 1st. I am dying to make it work this time!! When I was raw earlier this year, I was happy, energetic, and needed less sleep... This forum helped me during that time, and I look forward to utilizing it again as a tool to help me stay raw!!
Right there with ya Lauren
Once I had to break my juice fast on Feb. 6th I REALLY fell off the wagon the rest of the month.
I want to feel good again too, so I'm ready to "start over" How many times have I said that
You can e-mail me anytime if you need support or accountability .

Reason: got her name wrong
Excited to start the 30-day challenge
I've tried to go full out 100% raw in the past, but did a new approach this time. I've been drinking green smoothies since January 1. Then in February I started raw until dinner with my green smoothies. I started 100% raw yesterday and am excited to push on for the next 30 days. Starting slowly worked for me and I really did lose a lot of cravings for sugar and cooked food.
I would love to. Comforting to know I'm not the only one struggling! I think we should keep in touch -- since we seem on a similar raw food path :)

You guys sound keen, why not jump in TODAY!! Come on over & post what you've eaten for Feb.28 ;)
Busy preparing and making salad dressing, soup, and dessert. How exciting!
well, thought i would be posting my 30 days on the raw challenge but think i will post on the fasting discussion instead and come back to the raw challenge when my fast is over. thanks guys!
Hi everyone, this is actually my first post ... I'll post in the introduction area in a minute. Three of my girls and I are doing this together. They are 15, 14, and 11. I have been raw before so this is not new to me.
The children are not currently homeschooled (we have in the past and are looking to again) so we have discussed that they will need to transition due to some unpleasant detox symptoms that can develop. It will be the level of detox symptoms that will dictate when they will go 100% ... if it hasn't happened by the time school is out then 100% will happen the first day of summer vacation. At that point the 2 youngest kids will be following suit as well - they already eat high raw on their own (they were raised raw vegan from birth until a tragic event bumped me off the wagon).
I really don't see the oldest three boys trying this out anytime soon and I only foresee hubby going 75-85% raw at the most.... but I could be wrong - our example could make a great impact!!
I'm in for March. Have tried and failed raw many, many times in the last 5 years. I'm at my heaviest and unhealthiest right now and ready to start again.
March - Day 1

Day 1, yea!
Hi everyone! I'm back! I did 33 days raw last fall, and this forum was instrumental in keeping me on track and inspiring me with great menus and ideas! Happy to be here again!
I will do a 12 day raw feast this month (not the full 30 because I am going to China mid-month...) My reason for going 100% for these next two weeks is because I need to quell the craving for sugar that has been growing! Time to nip that one in the bud!
Starting Day 1 with good preparation! :)
B: granola of dried bing cherries, sunflower seeds, pepitas, & banana with almond milk
Lbrought my own to work today) mache, roquette & tomato salad
Have a great day everyone!
O.K.!!!!!!!!!! I'M INNNNNN!!!!
I SOOOOO want to do 30 days!!! It's been hard for me in the past to do past 10, but I am setting a goal this time and I really want to complete it. When I look back on the past 30 days, it went by so FAST.... :giggles: So, I'm hoping the next 30 will fly by just as FAST... :giggles: (...sorry couldn't help it!!!)
I was very encouraged the few days I did it last month... But, I'm ready to up my committment to myself. I will post every day.
Anyway, I will do mostly Water with Juices (esp Coconut!!!) thrown in too. I'm making the committment for ME.....just for ME. I keep WANTING to do this!!! I'm tired of "thinking" about FASTING 30 DAYS..... I'm gonna just do it!
One day at a time...! ....Aleesha, please hold my hand!!! :)
