I went on the Raw Food diet the day after Christmas.I started juicing on Jan. 10th of this year. I feel fantastic and have lost 40lbs!
About eight years ago our kitchen caught fire and I fell trying to get out. I hurt myself really bad and couldn't walk for some time. I had 2 surgeries on my knee and the doctor put me on steroids and gave me meds for my depression. These things combined with the lack of exercise made my weight go up drastically.
Every year on my birthday I get a well woman check up, the last one really scared me! Not only did I have to do all the normal test, but they had me take a EKG and Mammogram because of my age. My weight was at an unmentionable number and I was terrified that I could be pre diabetic!
I had a difficult time exercising before and I can't run. Since I've been juicing, I feel great and have tremendous energy! The best part is that I'm able to ride my bike with little to no pain at all! No more medications, not even ibuprofen is necessary.
Oh, did I mention that I used to snore like a chainsaw (that's what my family called it) well, within 2wks I no longer snored! My dry cracked feet, smooth as a baby.I've had bad skin my whole adult life...now it's smooth and hydrated! PMS is a dirty word from my past! I hardly know when Aunt Flo is about to visit,haha! and cramps hardly even exist. So when ever people doubt about eating Raw, I can prove them wrong! This has changed my life forever. I'm glad to say I will be here for my children a long time and will enjoy my life as it's meant to be!
