It'll be interesting to see the replies. I can tell you in advance though, that it varies hugely. So many factors come into play, and there's no real way of accurately predicting how our bodies will respond to 811 initially and through the detox period. In the long-run though, the results are the same - healthy inside and out :)
That sounds pretty steady! Thats great! Especially considering that 5lbs of fat is about the equivalent size of 3 small grapefruits.
Freelee & Victoria both said it took them a year and a half. But that it could take others longer. I'm just starting so I'm curious also. But I'm telling my self 18 month minimum. If I lose it fast then all the better LOL
But I'm telling my self 18 month minimum.
I think this is exactly the right mentality to start with! :) Keep the focus on long-term health and let our bodies do their thing.
Thanks Jon :-)
That's a good idea! I think I'll try to do that. I'm an impatient person and sometimes I expect everything to happen within 1 month so maybe giving it a minimum of 18 months will help me with accepting that my health is more important than weight loss! Thanks for the tip!
Wow you're about my age! (I'm 15). That's cool I haven't met many other teens trying to do this! you are tall though so even 137 is very low for you height! but that sounds pretty quick to me. Are you doing Raw vegan as well or just 80/10/10
When I started raw 11 years ago i never heard of 80/10/10 but I did eat a lot of fruit and it was very close to 80/10/10. i was about 30 to 35 pounds overweight. I started losing weight right away. but I have no history of eating disorders so I do not know if that is why I never gained. The only time I gained weight is when I would go off and eat high fat vegan. I think for people with no history of eating disorders they do lose weight right away.
I knew one person who did not lose weight but she had thyroid issues.
Thanks for letting me know! and wow 11 years! Thats great that you stuck with it. Inspiring 0.0!
I wanted to reply to this to get some more responses coming in. I have been 80/10/10 for 3 months. I don't own a scale, but I would venture to say I've lost just about 5 pounds in those 3 months. I weight around 145 lbs and I'm 5'2". I have a very long history of calorie restricting, hormone imbalances, and just improper dieting though. I am still 20 pounds heavier than I'd like to be, and I am just hoping that I will be able to lose the weight if I give it enough time. In the past month I have switched to a HIGH raw diet, meaning that I've added in rice, beans, and cooked potatoes (being that it is entering winter). So we'll see if that helps or hinders weight loss...
