I'm in Norwalk.
I agree that it's best to do it Cold Turkey. About 5 years ago I began researching human diet and a year later I found the fruitarian lifestyle. I did it overnight and I ended up losing 65 pounds. However, I fell off the wagon a while later. I am now back on the diet and doing great. I wish you the best.
I'm from the Waterbury area as well!! I'm learning about the lifestyle now, mostly I'm trying to find the best place to buy my food :). I see this post is quite old, have you learned anything new (if your still on the raw-wagon that is :P)?
