My Raw Food Diet Journey

My raw food journey

I have decided to go on a raw food diet, well I decided this a couple of weeks ago when I realised that the Atkins diet I was doing

no longer agreed with my system. I lost over 30 lbs on the Atkins diet 10 years ago but I realise now that it is not for me.

I decided to go on the raw food diet after reading so many positive articles about it. I also watched hundreds of videos on YouTube and saw some of the

amazing transformations. So,I started my raw food journey Saturday 7th January 2012. Today is my third day of the diet and so far I feel great. It is difficult to do but I think as time goes on I will find it much easier.

When I first decided to give the raw food diet a try, I was quite apprehensive due to the fact that I would not be able to eat many of the foods that I know and love. For example, pasta I love pasta! I mean I love pasta! I could eat it all day. I love lasagne and spaghetti and all those warm, comforting winter pasta dishes with lots of cheese. I did a lot of research and found out that I can eat something that seems similar to pasta. Well obviously it is not pasta but it does fill you up, I found out I can make some kind of noodle using zucchini. I can make a rich pasta sauce with tomato and sun dried tomato and olive oil and garlic and onion. I found out I can even make a rich pesto using cashew nuts and olive oil with basil and lemon juice. So, I am no longer so afraid of being on the raw food diet. I feel so much more energetic already and I have only been on the diet for three days now.

I hate talking about my weight but hey, I am going to tell you how much I weigh. I am 176 lbs, I hate my weight and I am ready to do something about it. I am not just doing the raw food diet for weight loss though, I am also doing it because I feel tired all the time, I feel miserable sometimes and I actually don't know why. This year is all about taking control of my life and so I am starting with my weight. I have so many other things that I need to get done but I am starting with my weight. I will post pictures up at some point, right now I am too shy for that but when I see some progress I will post some before and after pictures up for you all to see.

I would love to hear from people who have also had success with the raw food diet. So please do post up your comments and let me know how it went for you. I was actually thinking about setting up a blog about this but I won't do that for now. I will just post my updates on here and then when I get further into the diet I will do that, and transfer some of the information I have found throughout the diet on to the blog.

I really hope to have your support and I look forward to writing more on the topic every day.

Thank you and love and light
