I'm new here and need help
Posted by: Violet73 ()
Date: January 10, 2013 12:40PM

I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and I'm also overweight, mostly due to the medications (which I'm no longer on) and leading a sedentary lifestyle due to pain. I'm wanting to change my life and find myself again. I won't bore you, but I was active as a child and played softball and basketball and was always thin until adulthood. I was diagnosed with RA in 2007 and it hasn't been easy. I've cut out gluten, but obviously that isn't enough to help. It did help some.

I notice I flare after having beef and I know that animal proteins are making me worse. I also saw something on Facebook that broke my heart about how animals are treated before slaughter. I want to change my diet and change my life by going raw. What are some good books to read to help me get started? Thanks.

I'm new to this forum, the book that changed my life is Green for Life by Victoria Boutinko. A friend let me borrow it and I've been hooked since. Right now I'm reading Eating for Energy by Yuri Elkaim. My husband got it for me. Great book and coach.

Hey Romeo here Violet. LIFE IS TO SHORT Violet to dwell on negatives around and in us.
By being positive about the negative we cancel the negative out.
My experience with raw juice made in a raw juice machine and consumed within eight minutes before the juice rusts (goes brown due to exposure to air) makes us positive and healing or healed.
Raw food is good also for healing.
Go easy because CHANGING DIET can make you queasy.
A bit at a time until your body is used to it is recommended.
DRAMATIC RESULTS MAY FOLLOW IN GOOD HEALTH.

I think being a raw foodist isn't enough you have to have proper nutrition too. There aren't a lot of active members on this site so the few people that are here should support each other.

Where did all the active members go to around here? I could say that about me too! I used to be active here, but then fell off the high raw diet and eventually did not see a point to visiting.

I'm back for now, see if I can get started on a cleansing diet and back to moderate to high raw.

Welcome Violet! There is lots to read here, and lots of links to get you started! You can also come and start your own raw food diary on the other forum link.

Hey I'm new too. So hello to you. Ok you gotta google dr. Adiel tel-Oren. He's got like 16 hrs of free lectures on YouTube. He travels the world and is a highly sought after dr and speaker. He will teach the truth about the crap in the bad food and why you need an organic diet of vegan foods. So how r you doing? What's your update? I'm starting tomorrow but not totally raw. I'm going to ease into that but go totally vegan. I'll bet I'll be really grumpy next week as I detox. Yay!
