Over 300 lbs and going raw - eeek!!
 
Hi, everyone -
I'm an (almost) lifelong vegetarian. I have some pituitary issues that I m working with doctors to resolve (high cortisol, central hypothyroid, etc). My health has been deteriorating and I knew that processed food weren't helping. I have two very young kids , so not a lot of food prep time. Then I discovered a raw vegan delivery service - I tried a couple dishes and was sold.

So I am working towards being 100% raw vegan. I hope this new lifestyle will allow me to lose weight despite my med problems. I'm bout 75% raw vegan now, and feeling much better already.

So....it's kinda either this or weight loss surgery. And, right now, this is much better than going under the knife.


PS - I'm breastfeeding a 6 month old and this diet has not effected my supply - just fyi for any nursing mom's. Just make sure your calories are adequate.

pps - sorry if this seemed clunky or weird. I always type with one hand because if I am at the laptop, I am inevitably nursing! lol!

I didn't know there was such a thing as a raw, vegan food delivery.

Hi! I know I'm like a year late but I wanted to see how you've been doing since going raw.

I'm not quite 100% yet, and to be honest, I do not know if that's something I ever want to achieve.
But I've been transitioning into raw foods for about 50 days and I've lost 30 lbs. I noticed that my weight has not been coming off as quickly as it can, so I am going to boost my excercise and eat more green salads for lunch and dinner instead of chowing down on fruit every second of ever day!

I'd also love an update! I am vegan but in the process of transitioning to a high raw vegan diet.

Yes!!

I'm allergic to dairy and gluten so I make a lot of raw stuff just for the heck of it. It's fun :)

For any raw newbies..

get the book "Going Raw" by Judita Wignall

it's AMAZING. Most beautiful pictures, all very yummy and pretty easy to make stuff!! Even has a DVD for starters and lots of step by step pictures :)
