I have been lurking for the past month after someone pointed me in the directions of these boards and thought I should finally sign up and post. I would say the idea of going raw has been with me for a year, ever since I started doing Ana Brett and Ravi Singh’s Kundalini yoga. On their website they have a link to Shazzie.com and I have been slowly letting the idea of raw stew within me.
About a month ago I bought David Wolfe’s eating for beauty book and have slowly over this past month cut out unnatural sugars, processed foods, breads, red meat, and nearly all chicken. It was a bit difficult and I did falter a bit on my birthday when I ate some birthday cake. I still am eating sea food, most notably sushi. (Does sushi count as raw as its raw fish? – I’m guessing not.)
I have noticed already a difference in my body, just in how it feels. I have started drinking a green smoothie for breakfast every day. Greens are really my weakness, I could never eat enough of them to fulfill my daily needs so smoothies are definitely helping there. My body seems more regular already.
I am finding it desperately hard to be raw at night. I am used to a SAD and live still with SAD parents. Thats usually when I’ll end up eating a piece of fish and a big salad.
I am really looking forward to being one day maybe 100% raw and from just lurking am under the impression there is a wealth of knowledge out there.
