Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Last October, I was eating virtually no raw food in my diet. But since late last year - I'm between 95 to 100%. So my diet has changed radically and is extremely healthier than the food I was consuming before. Obviously with that major shift, I have had all kinds of changes. First of all, my bathroom habits have changed tremendously. In the way of detox, I have had rashes that have shown up on my body, but then they're gone. Also every once in while I will get a hot flash. Other than that, it's been pretty much smooth sailing.
I have experienced changes in my health and they're all for the better. I have lost my shortness of breath, I don't have to stop walking after 5 minutes, I can exercise now, I feel great every day, I feel stronger, and I'm a lot happier. I did light exercising 3 to 5 times a day for a couple of minutes per time and increase my walking. My energy level is 3 to 4 time more what it was before the 11 Weeks. My thought patterns are stronger and I don't get as distracted as easily as I use to. I am more alert, happier and have a much better outlook on life.
Over the past 11 weeks I lost 56 lbs, and lots of inches - Chest - 6", Waist - 8", and Hips - 5". Since I began this journey last November (2010), I have lost 104Lbs !! I am now able to wear clothing that I haven't worn in 6 years, but all my friends on RFR, You Tube, and Facebook noticed a difference in my appearance before I did. I think that weighing in every week corporately is not only helpful for accountability but it's a great way to gauge your progress.
The digital material and recipes were not only motivational but they also encouraged me to begin to make other healthy foods and break up the habit of eating the same thing every day. Through it all, I never once have felt that RFR support is not there for me. There is so much encouragement and support here at RFR that I have recruited many people to the mansion so they could also enjoy the abundance of support and love from the RFR Community!
For those who don't know my story - In 2010 my health had hit rock bottom. I literally felt life leaving my body. I would wake up in the morning and not be able to walk. I would walk for a couple of minutes and have to sit down because I couldn't walk any longer. I was in extreme pain most of the day. I had shortness of breath. I had sores on my legs. My diet consist of fats, and meats, cheeses, pastas, sodas, chips, candy, dairy products, and sugars. I could feel that I was literally DIEING. I didn't know what to do. I was totally lost.
One Sunday I was on the internet and I came across Dan McDonald's "The Liferegenerator" videos. His videos spoke to my heart. I contacted Dan and told him what I was up against with my health. He told me what Raw Food to eat, when to eat it, and how to eat the Raw Food. After that conversation with Dan I went to the kitchen and put all my food and condiments along with all the sodas in trash bags and took it all to the dump. I then went to the store and purchased Raw Organic Fruits and Vegetables and brought them home and started following Dan's instructions.
I went on the internet to find people that were unhealthy like me, but had changed to Raw Fruits and Vegetables and I found Raw Food Rehab. Finding RFR was one of the luckiest days of my life because of the positive support and the abundance of knowledge that the Raw Food Rehab Community has and shares with all of it's members. RFR has kept me motivated and there is not one day that goes by that I don't communicate with the RFR members. Thank God for RFR.
In a short period of time I have lost over 100 Lbs. I can walk, exercise, and the sores are gone from my legs. I don't have shortness of breath and I feel Healthier, Stronger, and Happier now. I have completely changed my life. The feeling of death is gone now. I will never - ever go back to the way I was eating before. Every day now I consume Raw Fruits and Vegetables and Dark Leafy Green Juices. I have purchase Juicers, Food Processors, and Blenders. This spring and summer I will grow my own Fruits and Vegetables.
In 2011 I will lose over 200 Lbs. I will regain my Health, Happiness, Longevity, and Vitality by eating Raw Fruits and Vegetables for the rest of my life. It is my goal to first learn and heal myself and then to pass on my lessons and knowledge to others to allow them to realize the same benefits that I have from a RAW Diet.
I want to Thank Everyone for the Motivation and Continued Support. Life is good when you have Friends That Care. I Love You All. You're Friend Bill...RawFoodForMyLife
