just transitioning to going raw…
I live in Devon, UK and work as a newly qualified nurse on an oncology ward, which I find hard at times, because although I am new to raw, I believe most of the patients would benefit from a raw food diet. I find it difficult to keep to raw because when I am at work, we actually have no time to eat anything except the chocs that patients have brought in for us and the caffeine fix that holds me upright during the 14+ hour shift, lol! However, when I do get a few days of raw eating in, people have said to me how pretty and young I look (I am 48!). And that’s after a few days! I have a few pounds to lose (approx 14), am reading David Wolfe’s book, cannot obtain a lot of the foods that people in the US have access to, but will do what I can when I can without stressing too much. If I can learn to upload photos, I might just upload before and afters just to compare. If I can’t become total raw, I know 75% plus is still going to be better than nothing. My goal is to go on a raw yoga retreat. If I can just persuade my other half that beef mince and beer is causing that spare tyre, we might even become a 100% raw household!
