  • how much weight did you lose during the first month?

    I combined eating raw foods with drinking kombucha and riding my bicycle everyday instead of using my car. I biked about 200 miles/week (which is not hard if you have a good road bike), and ate all I wanted of raw foods.

    If you start feeling seriously deprived of energy - especially if you are doing this for weight loss, not health benefits - eat an avocado with one tablespoon of raw honey.

    I dropped 15 pounds my first week, and a consistent 10 pounds a week for nearly a month. I went from 210 pounds back down to 155 like I should be at 5'5".

    Raw pistachios are also your friend. Watching fat intake is not nearly as important as watching carb intake. If your fat sources are natural, like avocados, pistachios, cashews, etc., your body will not be apt to store it. But the moment you start indulging carbs, you're in trouble.

    If you crave something sweet or something that is not so routine, try Lara Bars. They're an excellent way to curb desert cravings, but take it easy. I know of several "raw foodies" who just eat Lara Bars all day and it does only marginal good.

    Good luck! It's tough for the first week or so, but it gets so much easier once you feel incredible all the time, sleep better, never get sick, look great, and can concentrate like you're on Adderall.
