hi guys - i've been really wanted to go raw and stick with it and so far i got 5 days at the new year. my new date for the 100% raw vegan for 30 days trial is april 24th. i chose the date because it has significance for me personally and feel ready to give this a go soon. but i do find it hard being the only one i know personally interested in this and it would be great to connect up with others doing it or interested in it.
i'm in the los angeles area, btw.
thanks!
tania

I thought for a long time that I needed to meet some raw people but I have been getting a lot of support from this board. The people on here are very knowedgable on eating raw. We need to accomplish this change on our own, search out the answers on our own, with that is a great satasfaction. Eating raw is simple but changing a lifetime of bad habits is the hard part.
Welcome on the board.
I will go on a 30 day challange with you as well.

hi pampam -
thanks so much for the reply and support. indeed, this is something we have to do on our own; however, i've noticed that group support makes things a lot easier. i agree with you that this board alone provides a lot of support.
that would be so awesome if you would go on the 30 day challenge - i'd probably hav e to post at least once a day in the first week - that would be awesome. from what i've read 30 days is the amount of time you need to get the kind of results that make the idea of going back to cooked food not even tempting. i noticed after a few hours the light, upbeat mood that i can only imagine gets better. so i really want to give myself this chance to experience real health. because i think that's the other struggle - we don't really know what we're missing until we make the leap. anyway, i could go on. my plan is to start next friday, the 24th - it has a lot of personal significance and i've been wanting to try again since the new year's resolution only lasted 5 days and it took me this long to work up the commitment and overcome the doubt that i could stick with it. so one thing i learned from last time is to not let myself get hungry. so i'm planning to stock up on fruits, veg, nuts, things i can eat and try to eat at least a little about every hour or so.
do you have any suggestions or advice for me?
thank you so much!!!

Hi Tania and all!

I'm near London, England and struggling to be 100% but knowing it's the right thing to do! Tania I logged in! Today someone very un-raw was reading my vegan/raw magazine and was very positive about juicing asking lots of questions, he said I was inspiring him!! Blimey! I'm really attracted to doing a juice feast at some point so anyone done one????
