Who wants to start Juicing with me for about 6 days starting this Sunday, 4/18/2016?

I would love to have a few people to hold me accountable as well as become a Juicing team for a few days.

I want to see how many pounds I can burn off with Juicing and exercise each day.

Please email me at or call me at 845-323-0909.

Looking forward to talking and juicing with you for greater healthier habits.  I must get rid of these 12 lbs now.  It is time for my discipline self to come out :)

My First RAW Food Potluck in Studio City, California!

Hi Everyone!

I have been involved in this wonderful website since April 2010 and love it!  It helped me so much that I not only became 80% RAW, but I lost 30 pounds originally too.  Now that we live out here in beautiful Southern California, I can finally experience true healthy clean living!

I actually went to my very first RAW Food Potluck Meetup last Sunday and enjoyed it very much!  It was so much fun because most people brought in all kinds of delicious RAW…

Return of IBS due to Stress over relocation!

I am suffering again from the symptoms of IBS lately.  I thought I got rid of these awful bloated and gassy feelings in my stomach, but they are back again after finally moving from NY to California.

I am so happy that we finally made the move, but it was kind of stressful even though we were planning it out!  The last few weeks after all the Jewish Holidays and finally starting to unpack all of our belongings, getting our daughter into the Yeshivah for Hebrew, Home Schooling…

Does anyone know where there are Raw Food Restaurants in Los Angeles?

Hi everyone:

I am going on vacation with my family next week to LA to spend time on the beach and checking out schools as well as apartments out there to relocate hopefully this year.

I am hoping I can find some delicious Raw Food Restaurants out in LA - North Hollywood Valley or downtown LA.

Hope I can find someone that knows about raw food out there!

I want to do my research now because I have been keeping raw about 75% - 80%…

Trying to Stay Raw and keeping down the Stress!

It has been a couple of weeks since I made a green smoothie, which I am used to doing each morning when I prepare my husband and daughter for school and work.  My father just passed away and left me with his Will and Estate as well as his burial arrangements.

I have been under terrible stress.  Plus we are trying to keep a roof over our heads.  We try not to show our daughter too much stress either.

I still try to eat lots of oranges, bananas, pears and clementines. …

Not easy to manage weight loss - weight gain!

Thanks to Penni Shelton and Victoria Boutenko as well as many other interesting people on this website that I was actually able to lose weight and my symptoms of IBS.  I can't thank all of you enough!  I am so grateful to all of you!  I joined RFR in April 2010 so that I could learn to lose weight and hopefully clear my symptoms of IBS. 

The information available here plus all of the encouragement on RFR has really enabled me to become a better person.  I am a thinner and more…

Weightloss or weight gain? What is going on here?

Hi Everyone!  I am so sorry I have not been too involved for a few weeks now, but I did not forget any of you.  Especially Penni and Susan.  I really love all the help and learning about RAW that I could get this past year and a 1/2.  I was able to go from 152 lbs last year to 128 this year.  But all of a sudden, I had some weird cravings this past week.  I felt like eating popcorn last Sunday with salt.  Throughout the week a little more mozzarella cheese than usual and a bit more sweet…

My Celebration Day!

Hello Everyone:


I am so happy to share my hard work and effort with all of you here at RFR.  Last April 2010 is when I joined RFR.  I wanted to hear about the good health, pains, difficulties and journey towards feeling healthy.  So I am proof of a great RAW food lifestyle that has totally changed my life for all of the best reasons. 


1. I lost 20 pounds since last summer by drinking lots of green smoothies and juices as well as watching my diet carefully.  So…

It is almost one year since I am here at RFR!

I am so amazed at my weight lose today.  Ever since I became 80% RAW I feel so much better about my health.  I am on RFR already almost one year today and have dropped down from 153 - 136 lbs.  As I keep up the RAW food balanced diet plan, I just feel so much better about myself and the fact that I proved to myself that I can lose this weight.  I have been fighting a weight loss battle for a long time because of my fears, worries and other issues within my life that have bothered me for a…

What are your goals in the RAW food world to accomplish in 2011?

I have been really thinking about this now and am so excited to say that I really hope to complete my loss of weight to getting down to 125 lbs.  No we have not been able to purchase the vitamix or dehydrator yet, but we will.  My family is behind me 150% now.  I was about 20% - 50% RAW when I first started but now I am about 80% RAW today.  I really feel great about myself.


Also, after seeing that wonderful inspirational video on RFR about former President Bill Clinton on a…

My RAW Plunge!

I cannot even tell you all how happy I am just knowing that I can lose weight and feel really good by being here on RFR! I have joined this site back in April 2010 and was very skeptical of the RAW food diet. I was even afraid of the kinds of stuff I was going to have to eat. So I took the RAW food plunge!!! I tried checking out RAW chocolate, then even made RAW ice cream. I also found that I enjoyed RAW apple pie. A few days later I decided to try the GREEN SMOOTHIES and after about two weeks… Continue
