Yes sorry I know this thread has been put up a few times :) but this time we were hoping for lots & lots of raw before and after pics so we could transfer them to a permanent section on the site. It will be very motivating for newbies and oldbies alike :)
Ok i'll start...
AFTER 2 YEARS 100% Low fat raw vegan:
After 5.5 years on high carb raw vegan (another 12lbs down to 113lbs)
You said this really well, I totally agree.
It's interesting how people will just make up their own logic so they don't feel bad and to try and justify something they know deep down inside is just wrong. You can see this throughout human history.
Kudos to you for making a change.
I think i'm better equiped to make the choice of if I'm going to eat animal products or not.
People like to bury there heads in the sand on what there eating. If you can raise the animal and handle it start to finish and on your dinner plate go for it gobble down I have and if circumstances cause me to have to do it again I'll do what I have to do I suppose. But there is certainly a lot of work involved in that way of eating verses picking some fruit off a tree etc..
I cant help but think if you go back to primitive man is he going to look at a banana tree and a chicken and choose the chicken? The chicken would be so much effort and work pain and misery etc.. when all he has to do is pick a banana and eat it instead. Clearly man is going to take the easy road and grab the banana. Now if man is starved he hasnt seen a fruit tree in a week or anything else for that matter yeah the chicken might look like an ok option.
Wow passionateraw way to go! You are motivating me.
