I'm in! People already think my vegan eating is weird enough, let's give 'em something to talk about!
I just joined the forum today. I've been about 95% raw for a couple of months now, with the only cooked food being three eggs a day. I'd like to do 100% raw and take off another 20 pounds during January. I've lost 30 pounds since November 1st, a total of 60 pounds since May 1, and 40 pounds during the year before that. I have another 120 pounds to lose.
Welcome to both Of you!!! (((hugs)))
Here's what I have for our fast.
20 pounds of apples
I'll pick up parsley kale and stuff for my Tom juice the day we begin our fast. Sooooo excited to do this. Parz decided to do a detox program as well so he may not enjoy the beginning of this fast but his body is gonna love him!!!
Today is my day 1 for all 100% raw vegan. I am scared but it is what I am suppose to do. It just feels right. Any suggestions on how to make through the first day or days would be great. Thank you so much for doing this with me.
Current Weight: 137.5lbs
Goal Weight: 111-118lbs
Just started January 1. Interesting that I have been thnking about doing this for a while and now just found this challenge.
I have eaten raw before and have a very close friend who eats 100% raw, and I have always found it to be refreshing. From what I've read of others who have tried 100% raw it can be a miraculous experience. For me, this is about detoxing and rejuvenating myself and also about living simply.
I hope to track my progress at the end of each week and I am looking forward to hearing about other people's experiences.
Good luck everyone and good health!
WOW its 2012 already. Happy New Year to EVERYONE! Im hoping for a wonderfully HEALTHY start to my new year.
Back in March of 2011 I went raw,,,,lasted 2 months and then started doing some cooked food here and there. Fell off partly due to cost and partly due to laziness on my part, no excuses I am the only one to blame. I dont think I have ever felt as good as I did for them 2 months. Weight melted off me, my skin looked incredible, I had blood stats of a healthy teen athlete, im in my 40's and my overall feeling was contentment. I just plain felt, fabulous. THEN, I went down hill after stopping my raw lifestyle. SO, here I am ready to join some people who want what i want, raw, health, vibrance and overall wellbeing. Count me in on the 30 day challenge!
I will be back on later in the day to give ya all my info and help keep my accountable and on the right track.
Count me in!
I've been raw for a few months now but this will be my first 30-day challenge -- necessary after stumbling a bit through the holidays, hahahahaa!
Most likely I'll be doing A LOT of juicing this month, and lots of smoothies as well..... don't want to do a full-out juice fast though because I just got a dehydrator
I'm in. Love the raw life and the energy it provides! Starting my day with juice and tonight I'll be having some raw crackers and a salad! I found these great organic greens with baby herbs that's soooo yummy! I even use it in my smoothies!
have a broken leg but it is healing and I will be able to start soon- need healthy leg to shop( drive) because i go through some fruits and veggies when i do a raw challenge.
Doing a lot of raw and
all vegan now...
Good morning everyone!!!!!!!! day 2 for me, I missed Jan 1st.
So, on day 1 I couldnt have had a better day. Aside form the fact 1 of my puppies took off with a sneaker and I didnt find it until this morning, lol.
Day 1 looked like this.
Breakfast,,,mmmmmmm quart size smoothie, kale, banana, kiwi, clementine, watermelonfrozen strawberries.
Snack, Grapes, nuts
Lunch, LARGE tomatoe and green pepper salad with walnuts and spices. Cold and fresh and ohhhh so good.
Dinner, got home from Augusta late so grabbed a banana and then went to bed.
Lots of water. supplements, b-12, vitimin E. spirulina, and maca. All kinds of energy
Weight day 1 - 212.5
weight day 2 - 209, amazing how much water our bodies retain when we eat a crappy lifestyle. Im off to get ready for work. Have a great day everyone!!!!!!!
So frustrated....been raw for 3 days now and gaining weight. Hope it's because I'm PMSing...
Natural-girl I too gained weight when I first went raw. I gained 2 to 5 lbs, but I been raw about 3 weeks now lost that plus 4 lbs!!! I think it's your body with toxins or that your completely hydrated! Trust me it will come off!!! (hugs)
I just have finished a one full year of raw, and I will be raw in this year too.
I will join in this challange again, best wishes to everybody
I would love to hear your experience with one year.
