I've just recently become interested in 80 10 10 as I've been in and out of raw for years, and realized that the first time I did it (ha!), I lost 30 pounds in three months simply eating fruits and veggies. Then I started reading learning that I should add fats. That I needed to make sure I had my calories. I discovered recipes. Since then, I've gone on and off raw; I've done 80% raw. I've even done 100% raw for 30-60 day trials, but never lost the weight or felt as good as that initial summer.
I've been researching 80 10 10 on the web and decided that, from what I could find out, it made some sense. However, I'm one of these people who, once I discover something I'm interested in, want to know everything I can. I want to know WHY. I want to know HOW. But my budget is very limited right now as I'm saving for vacation, putting money into my garden, etc, so even though I had the $30 for the book, I just felt it needed to be put elsewhere right now.
Just found a used one on Amazon for $15. Man, you won't believe how fast I ordered that sucker.
Just this week I've been upping my fruits, lowering my fats and already my clothes seem just a tad bit looser, my skin seems just a tad bit clearer. My energy seems just a little more up. So I'm happy to continue the experiment. BUT NOW I'LL HAVE THE BOOK, TOO!
Can you tell that RawJoy is very joyful this morning. (hmmm, could it be the diet??)
Everyone have a great Friday and a wonderfull weekend!!!
