I have been trying to eat raw lately, but I am only doing it 75%. Even at that, I feel a huge difference and notice a great difference in my skin. Plus, it is so much fun trying to get creative with recipes!

I'm not 100% raw but I have been eating more raw foods and it's great. I have more energy and clear skin. No more spending tons of money trying to find acne creams that work.

Since my post above, I have gone more vegan than raw, but I do sort of wish I stuck with the raw food thing longer. I hear that the benefits are great. I just need to read up more on it to ensure that I get all the nutrients I need.

I really want to try, I even bought a raw food cooking book (Eat Smart Eat Raw by Kate Wood), but with my lifestyle it's pretty hard. I'm almost never home to cook for myself, so even only a week trying the raw food diet is difficult. And according that book I bought, a lot of the meals needed a dehydrator to prepare the food.

I'm vegan though and I aim to eat food as close to the natural state as possible. And now I've decided to give up white sugar.

If it works for you that's really great...personally I don't think I could do all raw, and there has been considerable negative attention based on that fact that people have died from malnutrition on the diet..but of course those are pretty isolated cases.

In a nutshell..it's not for me.

^ Yeah it is pretty restrictive, but it makes my body feel a lot better and healthier. I've also seen that I lose weight faster. But I know what you're saying, there's tons of things I miss too like Pizza and pasta. I'm not a strict raw food dieter either, I cheat on things like Starbucks and Sprinkles cupcakes and that sort of thing. I could never give my Starbucks up, not for any diet!

But just to let you all know, I went to Whole Foods the other day and in the sections with the nuts they have tons of shelves dedicated to raw food goodies like the Raw-e-oes, they're their version of an oreo and although they're 100 calories PER COOKIE (ouch!) they're delicious!! And I would never think of having a real Oreo again, they're truly heaven!

Okay, I have a question and I have no idea where to put it or if it's been mentioned so sorry


Is it less beneficial to blend (or juice) vegetables/fruits together and consume them that way as opposed to eating them whole? Do you still get all the nutrients if you do?

^ I heard juicing is better, but that was just one person's opinion. I'm not sure about that, it's a good question!

Since I am a vegetarian I eat a lot of raw foods but I don't think I could do it 100%, although hopefully someday I will have enough willpower to attempt it.

Eating mostly raw and it's helped a ton with my skin, mood, and not eating refined sugar. I think the only thing holding me back from going 100% is I dislike extremes, however if I keep feeling this good I might commit completely. In the mean time I'm just eating things I know I won't over eat/binge on (fresh whole grain bread for veggie sandwiches, vegan soups, etc).
