  • Hove you been reading the eating clean diet book, or the G I one lol. I think it's good to do...but really hard!!! That's how we should eat, but we grow up eating really good cooked food, and it's hard to give things up like that.

  • lol @ pnukey.... People who go raw are veggies. I'm a veggie, and thinking about making that leap- takes a little more prep for meals though (planning, not prep work). My parents went Raw about 6 years ago- both are now in their 60's, neither is on any prescription meds, and and have suddenly rediscovered the energy of their youth. It's been amazing to see the change in them since they went raw!

    TMJ~ did you know that you are supposed to defecate as many times in a day as you eat??? and that if you are not having at least 2 BMs a day, that indicates VERY poor bowel health?
