‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

I'm Experiencing A Miracle


Truly. The change I am experiencing from this diet/lifestyle change is nothing short of miraculous. I don't like calling it a diet. It's more like a feast of good things! I have completed 5 full days of 100% raw and living foods. For the skeptical, here is what has happened thus far:

Lost almost nine pounds.
Went from a 44 E to a 40D bra.
Lost 4 inches in my waist.
Lost 4 inches in my chest.
I have no double chin or excess weight on my neck.
My eyes are whiter ( don't know why!)
I am wide awake after 6 hours of sleep versus 11-12 of before
I wake up w/out an alarm at 6am, reading to run!
My body wants to be moving all the time ( be4fore it wanted to SLEEP all the time.)
My auto immune pain is decreased so much it is almost imperceptible.
I no longer take naps. ( whereas before I HAD to...EVERY day)
I am thinking more clearly
colors have changed..I can see better
My vision has gotten better...don't need glasses for the computer starting today!
My skin looks AMAZING. I stopped wearing make-up.
I am beginning to crave the good foods!
I am not experiencing ANY low-blood sugar moments!
I am fitting into clothes I haven't worn in years..in FIVE DAYS!

To be clear, this is not simply a raw food diet. I think the benefits are because I'm eating/drinking SO many greens. Only live, fresh greens, veggies and fruit, and a handful of dried banana chips the past few days.

I have not felt this alive, happy, motivated, clear, and peaceful since I was about 5 years old.

God bless green food. I can't believe it has taken me 44 years to discover this secret. I can't believe health and wellness is this easy.

Ran this morning again, and just got back an hour ago from a long hike in the woods with Anastasia and the dogs. Anastasia put it perfectly, as we made our way through the trees and green.." Mom, life doesn't get much better than this moment.."

  2. That is fantastic. I wish I had your will power to just get started. I know when we eat too many carbs they cause us to crave more carbs. So it's a viscious cycle. Do you know how I could get a copy of the diet. Or do you just eat nothing but fruit and vegs uncooked? Do you have a link where I could read more about it?

    Does raw food TASTE good? I've been trying to be healthier by drinking more water and sticking to only one soda a day. I love raw fruit and veggies...I could totally see avoiding meat in my diet, but the hardest part for me would be not being able to drink soda or eat sweets. Do you think it would make some difference in my health if I at least sort of MAINSTREAMED my diet to raw foods, and still had a little soda or sweets?
