  • Hi, I have been high raw vegan for almost a year. I eat maybe one cooked meal once a day (if that) and it is strictly vegan. I caught a lot of colds and flu bugs this year, however I am extremely active as I train for marathons and triathlons. My ir…
  • I agree with windmillmind! You are not failing! There is nothing written in stone that you have to be 100%. Even having a little raw is better than nothing. You are doing better than most people out there! I too have horrible body image issues and i…

  • I've personally never had issues with eating raw broccoli but I know quite a few people that do and it can cause cramping, bloating and horrible gas. If I were you I would lightly steam it for him, you don't want him to get gas and cramping and blam…
  • Good luck and I hope you meet your goals. May I make a recommendation? Just remember to not focus so much on the weight, it should be about how you look and feel and you will lose what your body thinks it needs to lose...it might not be as much as y…
  • I agree with joannabanana when she stated that you don't have to be 100% raw. I went raw in the summer and my weight got down to 119lbs (from 130) and I am also 5'3.'. But I felt that I looked too sickly and thin so I increased fats to put on a bit …
  • Hi Fonky, I thought I'd put my two cents in. When I first went raw three months ago, I didn't lose weight either. Prior to going raw, I was on an anti-candida diet and I didn't lose weight on that and I cut out a lot of things. Now I wasn't looking …
  • Hi Redtamberine! I haven't tried Bee pollen but have heard all about its benefits, have you tried it? The sports drink is available in health food stores and they sell it in individual sample packs so that you can try it before buying the large cont…

  • Hi, I too am a marathon runner and also a triathlete. I suffered with hypoglycemia for years. I was really skeptical at first when being introduced to this new way of living but I have to tell you that since switching over to mostly raw vegan, my ru…

  • Eat every few hours, that works for me. Snack on lots of fresh fruit and veggies in between. And if you want something filling, add avocado to your salads.

  • I have a friend who is allergic to hazelnuts, she breaks out in hives too. Get an allergy test done to confirm. Adult onset allergies are more common then ever. In just the last year I just found out that I have severe environmental allergies to all…

  • I have been experiencing major breakouts for the last 6 weeks, the pimples are tiny white heads all over my face and on my upper back and shoulders, and i have some huge red itchy ones on my back. Joannabanana, how long did this breakout last for yo…

  • Thanks for the suggestions Samuelj, I think I will make the burrito for my lunches. The ride is in Toronto Ontario Canada, we are riding from Toronto to Niagara Falls. Great point pixx on dehydrated foods, I may stay away from those since it is supp…
  • Thanks! I don't have a dehydrator yet as I am still new to all of this and am slowly transitioning over to raw, I do hope to get one shortly though. I won't have a backpack with me but I can fit some fruit in the pockets of my riding shirt but the w…
  • The best method to completely clean out the colon is colon hydrotherapy. I went three times and I have to say that there was a 5lb difference right there, not to mention all the other benefits I noticed right away. My stomach is so flat it is unbeli…
  • Hi Rawsaysrita, you are right about the pill and it is very familiar with me. I started on it about 2 years ago, came off of it for a while which was from last October until this past June. Since I went on it, everything went downhill. I had huge im…

  • Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions. My doctor is sending me to a sleep lab in the next month which i really don't want to go to. I will be so nervous that I am sure the results will show that I am a bad sleeper. I have always slept ab…

  • Thanks Paige4. How much does 1 coconut produce? I have seen some recipes where it calls for at least 10. I only bought two and I really want to use them tonight. Do you know of any really simple desserts? I am trying to show my boyfriend that eating…
  • Thank you so much for taking the time to write back .kelly.. I have noticed that I am still extremely tired, something I have been battling for over a year and a half. When I first started the anti-candida diet last month I started to get some energ…
  • Thank you. .kelly. when you say a diet high in fat, what do you mean? I have always eaten very healthy, but mostly a high protein diet because I am very active in marathons, triathlons, weight training etc. My diet has always been low in fat and I n…
  • Thanks everyone. Putiger78 can you elaborate more on the oil cleansing method? What is your skin care regimen and what do you use? This is really frustrating because the pimples don't seem to be clearing and I get new ones during the day...they are …
  • Thank you for all of your help. I was so desperate that I went out and bought ProActiv...not sure if this was a wise thing to do. Do you have any recommendations for skin care products that are natural and effective? ProActiv states that their stuff…
  • Thanks everyone for your help. My last question is where can I get some great resources to help me go raw vegan? I read one forum on here on what some people eat and some people say they only eat fruit all day...that is way too much sugar for me and…
