Just had to throw that out there, as it means nothing to anyone I know except maybe you guys :P Last March I went raw for one month with some friends, as a detox. I laughed and said "Why not? As long as I don't turn into a permanent crazy raw foodie". After one month I had never before felt better and realised with some amount of terror (after having a glass of wine and some partially cooked food on my birthday) that I wouldn't be able to go back to my previous copious drinking, emotional and binge eating, frequent weed smoking and crap health. After meeting some raw folk and looking up info on raw food, I figured out that I needed to read Dr. Graham's book and follow the hcrv lifestyle. \By one year ago today I had committed to making my total health and well-being my priority. Plenty of challenges and a lot of difficult life choices later, I am still carrying on and anticipating incredible health and well-being. Many thanks to the 30bad community and to those who have helped me along the way.
