Hi everyone.. my name is Caty and I am 23 years old and live up in snowy Canada!
I pretty much lead the worst lifestyle ever. I eat like crap- I am a bartender at an Italian restaurant so most of my meals are cooked- though I do eat a lot of veg also. My diet is a lot of carbs and animal products. I am a certified Diet Coke addict. I don't really drink and I don't smoke/do drugs. I don't exercise really but I'd label my job as pretty active.. on my feet all the time, walking, jogging, lifting etc. I also have two Italian greyhounds so they keep me busy and go for around an hour walk a day.
I weigh around 155 and want to weigh 115. I weighed around 185 two years ago and went down to 130ish but it crept up again. I never made anything a lifestyle change.
Yesterday I switched my diet partially- three meals a day raw and one cooked. If I keep that up should I notice a difference in my health? I don't want to go fully raw as I love to enjoy a cooked meal with my boyfriend,. I will just try to make my meals around 2/3 vegetables and cut out the cooked starchy foods!
The raw meals I have eaten are just fruit and vegetables. I have an allergy to nuts and avocados.
I haven't quit Diet Coke.
I have noticed pretty intense headaches the last few days though.
Thanks for any replies and I look forward to learning a lot!!
