you are welcome. I am glad to hear of your success.
I became a vegan recently and am trying to incorporate more raw foods in my diet. I am not where I want to get eventually (85% raw) but well on my way.
Also started walking or swimming 6-7 days a week aftrer years of no exercise.
Although I am currently not restricting my calories, these changes brought me a 27 pound weight loss.\
Then I started a juice feast/fast 3 days ago as I am going to do Dr Richard Schulze
's incurables program for my recent diabetes diagnosis.
I went to weight myself today and was shcoked to see I lost another 10 pounds
in those three days despite missing walking one day. Since I am aiming for a 45 day fast, I hope to lose a lot more and hope I do not gain most of it back when I start eating again but am getting it lots of produce.
I don't really feel any differently with my changes but then I rarely do with any supplement, herb or food improvement, but I do think when and if I make it to 85% raw, then I will get the energy I have not had since I was 20 back and reverse my disease.
Not sure what to do with the pulp as I hate to waste it so making broth and straining out the veggies and freezing some but already it is starting to fill up the freezer. I guess I will have a lot of soup when done but then that is not raw.
I like that women in the video think that raw is truly the answer.
Last time I fasted, I had very good results both weight and health wise. My longest juice fast so far is 30 days. It is not too bad but my stomach is growling a little. I feel it was easier to get it going this time than last. Once you are on it 3 or 4 days, all hunger pretty much goes away.
I remember Patrica Bragg saying in her book on vinegar that she fasted 3 days a month and one day a week and it helped with weight control. For the first time, I am thinking of maybe trying this as I do need to lose weight due to my diagnosis and wanting to reverse it. I ad some goals along the way and today I passed my first goal and now it is on to the 2nd one.
This is the first time in many years that i have tried to lose weight but reversing my health problem is my motive. well, keep up the good work.
I kind of also think giving up all animal products iss helping despite my not dieting and eating what I want within the vegan category and focusing on whole foods and a few other strategies.
I found giving up animal products is much easier than going raw and giving up processed health food products and cooked foods, but the raw food is very delicious.
