This past week one of my good friends mentioned to me that she was struggling with her weight and after hearing me talk at length about the magic of raw food, she decided to give it a shot and eat mostly raw for a week. Inspired to up the ante in my own diet, again, I decided to join her. For those of you who know me, you know that I am quite passionate about raw foods. Though, to be honest, the longest I have stuck 100% to a raw diet is only 30 days. Not long at all considering the time it takes for real change to take place in the human body (if it takes seven years to generate new cells throughout your entire body, 30 days isn’t going to have much of an effect - overall). But I keep reminding myself that even little steps in the right direction are better than none at all. ;)
Luckily, the timing of my renewed motivation coincides quite nicely with The Banana Girl Diet Challenge happening on Facebook. There are now over 1,100 members and many fruities who are very experienced on the raw vegan / high-carb raw-vegan / 80/10/10 diet. If you are at all interested in learning more about raw food, you should come check it out and join!
Also, starting this afternoon The Brilliant Body Summit begins! It’s a series of telecasts done by poignant members of the raw vegan movement (starting with author of The 80/10/10 Diet - Dr Doug Graham)! This is a rare chance to hear from the pro’s and ask your own questions, so once again, I highly recommend you take a peek! ;)
I’m off to start the day on the healthy foot and have bananas for breakfast! Happy & Healthy Tuesday Everybody! :)
