110 pounds lost so far, in 6 months !!!
Posted by: RAWLION ()

Hey everybody....
September 10th, 2009 I made a decision. I went 100% raw vegan, quit eating meat, and all the other junk. I was previously a Low-Carb type of person I thought. Little did I know that I was in fact over time, continuously slowing my metabolism down. I lost 30 pounds in the first 2 weeks !!! I was originally inspiried by Clent Mannich. He lost like 230 pounds by drinking green smoothies and eating Raw! luckily I don't have quite that much weight to actually lose, as I have a huge frame. I am 6'5", and have some serious bones.
So i have sort of mimicked his methods. I try to do wheatgrass everyday, I juice, and I do a green smoothie as often as possible. for the first few months I was losing 1-2 pounds everyday !!! Now that I am down to 333 pounds, I feel so much better, i am super energetic and light feeling. I do sit ups, i lift weights, I do all the things I always wished i had the motivation for. Its not that my mind is feeling all free all of a sudden, its that my body is actually feeling healthier on the INSIDE, more so than ever before in my LIFE !!!
I'd love to help anyone who may not have the faith to go 100% raw. There is nothing to fear my friends, in fact, you should be deathly fearful of NOT GOING 100% !!! I will post my before and during pics. by summer hopefully I will have the after shots !!!!!
I am ready to spread the truth about health, which is true wealth.

I guess I should tell everybody that I am a Strong Irish/german strapping 30 year old young boy. My ideal bodyweight will ultimately, I feel, be around 275 pounds. I also want to mention that even on days when I was losing 2 pounds, I could still eat PILES of fruit!!! Like 10 bananas. 30 satsumas. etc etc....

These are my before shots, as shameful as I am, it is liberating to shed the weight, and show people my suffering so they may be freed themselves.

NOW, here are my "during" pics. These were taken a few days ago, on february 19th 2010, about 5 months since going raw !!! Keep in mind under the fat that still remains is a vibrant, strong, muscular person now. I was always muscular, but wow, i never thought by quitting meat my muscles would grow WAY faster than all my years of meat and weight lifting!!! I feel like I am deflating, and I am a skinny person escaping from a suit of fat !!!!!!!!!!
I have lost officially, as of 10 minutes ago, 108 pounds !!!

hey everybody. I haven't written on here in a while. Busy summer. I currently have been at a standstill at a total weight loss of 140 pounds so far. a few days ago i decided to get serious again and redce my fat intake to nearly zero. I do eat maybe half an avocado a day, or some hemp seeds in my smoothie, but in general that is the key to major weight loss. Fat melting. Lots of greens, very little fat.
I am going to a outdoor camping music festival next month and am aiming to lose as much fat as possible before then!! I will definitely post fresh pics as soon as I have some !!!

WUDDUP EVERYONE !!! This is me now after starting at 440 pounds, 54 inch waist, and I used to wear 4xl or 5xl shirts. I'm now happily a 38 inch waist! I wear size large shirts. I weigh in at 249 currently!!!!!!! that is a total average, to this moment, of 2/5 of a pound per day since september 10th, 2009! I am here for anybody who needs support. I am doing this not only for me, but for everybody who suffers eating addictions and crap food habits. Guess what, there is hope. Just give yourself to 100% raw or start anywhere. just let raw food over take you. it will save you and teach you and show you the way. have faith in raw and it will give you everything.

I followed the plan of fixate on greens!!! and if you want to lose fat, dont eat fat. Its SUPER easy to fixate on nuts and seeds and oils as a raw foodist. save that fun for after you have lost your fat and finished your detoxing! I started at about 440 pounds. I am currently about 225 pounds and I look HOT !!!!

Hi there smiling smiley
I'm curious if you have any updates on how things are going..and how you've done with the 'loose skin'? I'm female - used to weigh over 400 pounds and have managed to lose 200 pounds on a healthier SAD lifestyle with lots of exercise. The last year I've been stagnant..I have about 100 pounds more I'm hoping to lose and after a lot of GI issues related to SAD (I believe..just the typical bloaty, heavy icky feeling after I eat SAD), I turned to RAW Vegan lifestyle...been at it two months and loving it.

Anyway, you're story is inspirational for sure...hoping Green Smoothies will help me lose my excess weight over the next 6 months or so.
