I have heard many claims that a raw food diet can do wonders for you...(detox your body, reduce your weight, improve your health, improve your moods,
etc..) and although I've tried it on my own before, I haven't been able to make it past a week on my own.
However, lately, I've seen some very inspiring posts by other members who have basically had health miracles brought about by radically changing
their diet, so I thought I'd try it again. I thought maybe if I had some company (albeit virtual company) on my little science experiment, it would
be easier for me to stick with it.
So, just like we saw that guy document his 30 day experiment eating McDonalds every day in "Supersize me" I'm going to document my 30 day
experiment in eating raw food every day.
Tecnically, a "raw food diet" is raw if you eat at least 75% of your foods uncooked. So, that's what I'm sticking with for my goal: 75% raw foods
for a month.
At the end of each day, I'll post my daily weight, pounds lost, food eaten, and general feelings of health. At the end of 30 days, we can all be the
Why? Well, honestly, I need to lose 32 pounds. And sadly, when it comes to doing something for my own good, I'm not so good at following through.
But, if I can find a way to help the world with whatever goal I'm trying to achieve, I generally have much better follow through.
So, this is my way of doing what I can to contribute something positive to the world.....a 30 day, documentation of what it's like to "go raw."
Does it work? Will I lose weight? Will I feel better? Will my clohtes fit better? Will I feel like a million bucks after 30 days like everyone says I
will? We'll see!
(If anyone else wants to join me in my little experiment, please feel free to "latch on" to my thread and join me in this endeavor.)
Day 1 started today.
