Greetings to all,
My name is Ann. I live in Bloomington, IL, USA. I'm 27. I was a vegetarian for a year then got sick so my dad forced me to eat meat. He thought I got sick and weak because of no meat, but I think it was because I ate wrong and because my health was always bad. I always ate cooked vegetables and rice, because I didn't know what to make. Anyway, I live by myself now and I saw raw food on youtube. It made sense! So I started researching and now I'm here! I am doing 100 days raw to start. I did 2 weeks of raw-cooked and learned some recipes. I made some easy recipes like Almond milk and flax crackers and found that raw foods are not bad at all. I bought 4 cool books to study also - Raw food real world, raw diet revolution, raw food, and idiot's guide to raw food.
My 100 day raw started yesterday and I felt fine. Today Im more tired, but I guess it is because I'm withdrawing from carbs. So I'm here because the 100 days raw would be HARD. I need support and want to make some friends. If anyone lives close to Bloomington, IL, please let me know. No one I know eats raw food and when I talk about it they seem to think I'm crazy. I really want to be able to make good friends who I can share this experience with, complain and be excited with! I want to hear about your experiences also!
I don't think I will be a 100% raw foodist after the 100 days, but I thinkt this way of eating is really going to improve my health. After the 100 days raw I will see if I want to incorporate some cooked food into my diet. But eating more raw food is here to stay. I want to make it a lifestyle.
Catch ya later,
