RTK's before & after...so far. :-D
I haven't always been raw. In fact, I didn't even know the raw food lifestyle existed till about 2 months ago. I would say I am about 50-60% raw right now and am quite content. Hopefully in a few weeks I can bump that up to 80%.
March 15, 2010 I began a new chapter in my life. I was 280 lbs., my body was ill and I was just all around unhealthy. So I got rid of anything with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, junk food, fried food, sodas, candy, red meat and began eating healthier (boiled chicken, ground turkey, whole wheat products, fresh veggies, fruit, and lots of water.). Plus began exercising and well, here I am 5 months later, but alot healthier.
Now I eat much more raw foods daily and maybe eat cooked food once per week.
Anyway, the first picture was me in at my heaviest at 280 lbs. and the next picture is me now at 199.6 lbs. I've still got about 50 more lbs. to release, but I'm in it for the long haul...not going anywhere. I've come to far now.
You look great, and I'm guessing that you feel amazing. :)
Keep it up!

It is, therefore, evident that it is possible to cure by foods, aliments and fruits; but as today the science of medicine is imperfect, this fact is not yet fully grasped. When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, aliments, fragrant fruits and vegetables, and by various waters, hot and cold in temperature.
