Originally I am from New Jersey and after moving around and seeing the world quite a bit I have settled in Portland, Oregon. I have been a raw foodie since August 1, 2007 and presently am around 80%, only because I am addicted to a few cooked foods. I have lost about 75 pounds so far and before I had super high blood pressure, like stroke level, and very high cholesterol. Since becoming a raw foodist my BP and Cholesterol have returned to normal levels for the first time in many years. My doctors were thrilled and said most people who get there stomach stapled see these kind of results. And all I did was just eat my fruits and veggies.
I am happy to be here and part of this community.
I also make a mean raw falafel wrap sandwich and look a lot thinner now then in my profile photo.
