I have been vegetarian since I was 12, and became raw vegan four years ago. This is where my journey became a roller coaster ride. I started out low fat RV and everything was great. I even lost 40 pounds. (Yet I was still overweight.) I hit my plateau there. I stopped losing weight and began to feel unbalanced. My teeth hurt all the time. I continued working out and eating LFRV, thinking I would get past this hump. I was not getting any results and decided it must be time to switch it up. Next I tried low glycemic raw vegan. I felt much better doing this, yet still never lost any more weight after the initial 40 on the LFRV diet. I did this for a good amount of time and then became slack on my eating since I was seeing no weight lost results. I was just eating raw vegan. Anything and everything as long as it was raw vegan. I slowly but steadily gained back the 40 pounds. After being strictly raw for almost two years I began to lose faith in the whole raw idea. I still eat a lot of raw but eat a cooked vegan diet now. Freelee is an inspiration to me. I also, before ever going raw, struggled with anorexia and bulimia and have messed up my metabolism and thyroid. I am ready to try this lifestyle again. Looking back, I can see I was not eating enough calories. I feel somewhat intimidated because everyone who appears to be succeeding in this lifestyle seems to have time, money and lives in a warm or tropical climate. I'm looking for practical solutions for those of us who don't.

I unsuccessfully tried this lifestyle in the past. I am looking for practical ways to live this lifestyle without having to move to a tropical country. (Or even a warmer climate.) I'm an everyday person who works for a living. I only get a small amount of time to eat on lunch breaks. I live in an area that gets cold in the winter time. I'm looking for practical successful solutions!!!
