how it's changed your life

I want to know how switching to a raw food lifestyle has changed your life either small or large.

For me switching to a raw food lifestyle was not done on purpose. It was more by accident and more gradual than just changing one day. I had some health issues that kind of led me to a better lifestyle and I just ended up raw. I feel 100% better than before. Lots more mental clarity and energy. Sure there are still days where I feel down or not up to par but for the most part it was a good decision for me.The only thing that I have lost is most of my friends think that I am nuts so we have drifted apart but maybe someday I will meet someone with similar interests in a raw lifestyle like me. Even my naturopath does not totally agree with not eating animal protein. Oh well, for me at this stage in my life I am pretty content with what I am doing. Not much else to say at this time.
Take care, P.L.

I am relatively new to Veganism; however I notice that I don't have the same hunger and bad cravings like I did when I ate highly processed foods.

It has healed my diabetes. Going vegan (cooked) made me healthier and helped me lose weight but still my numbers were bad and I had to take medication. Then I went high raw and my health has been amazing and all my numbers got better and I'm off all medications now. I feel so alive and full of energy.

I recently turned 50 yrs old. I can no longer deny the fact that I need to take better care of myself. I needed to lose weight and exercise more. I've been aware also that I have a number of food sensitivities that are becoming more serious.

Around the beginning of 2009, my wife and I decided to start eating raw/vegan. Although currently, we are not 100% vegan yet, we are quickly moving that direction. My wife has already lost about 30 pounds and I have lost over 20!

We both feel much better physically and mentally with more energy.

We really are loving the entire lifestyle switch we are making to raw/vegan.
