Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Super quick update: Two months "re-rawed," still loving it, still taking off pounds. Not sure what I weigh because I am being good and not weighing (it tends to mess me up.) But my clothes feel looser and hang better and I feel lighter on my feet and less pain, so woo-hoo! I have settled into a pattern that works: green juice upon rising, green smoothie late a.m, heartier raw entree for lunch, very light dinner like a big salad or just an avocado mixed with salsa.

Time flies when you're eating lots of kale. And sprouts. And avocados! I'm cruising along with my "lazy lady's raw." Basically, I wake up every day and make a green juice and drink it.

If you add it to what I had managed to keep off (not much) from the days before I started, I am 52…Continue
I'm 38 days raw today and hanging on. Today is a no-craving day; that is good. In these 38 days I have had two "whoopsies" when I ate things I have chosen not to. But in each case, I only ate a few bites before I came to my senses and stopped myself from having more, or far worse, binging the rest of the day, or worst of all, quitting on myself. I am going to call that progress because in the past I have done both of those and this time, I just made my next bite raw. It is not realistic…Continue
