hi there! I'm brand new to this site and stumbled across it while looking for fitness tips. It's really awesome to see that there is such a supporting community to raw foodists.
I am brand new to raw. Today marks my 6th day of being 99% raw (I enjoy the occasional cocoa roasted almond), and I have never felt so alive. I don't even feel this energetic after my 2nd cup of coffee-- I never thought I could achieve this without caffeine, sugar, or some other sort of energy booster.
I had been working out and eating "right" for some time now, and there were results at first, but then I plateaued and actually gained a pound back. Extremely frustrating when I had been eating fewer and fewer calories, and working out harder and harder. Then I stumbled across a few raw sites and I was intrigued. I started a 10 day raw diet as a challenge to myself. I'm definitely looking forward to incorporating the rawness into my life permanently.
Any tips? Books? Websites? I love to cook, so recipes (I don't have a juicer or a dehydrator... yet) would be much appreciated.
