HOW do I start?

Why do you want to go raw?

What is your ultimate goal?

When would you like to be there?

Do you FEEL ready to go for it?

Going raw is not as difficult as it seems to be. Once you found your reason WHY, excitement will take over from your doubts and fear. Simply because eating raw will open new possibilities, a new world, your new YOU. And just admit that you want CHANGE, so why hesitate one more minute? You need one more push in the back? Just think of the sparkling energy that will lift you up, think of the new body you will receive, think of losing pain and complaints, think of your “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” moment, think of looking radiant, think of feeling ravishing, think of living longer and HEALTHY!

Being raw is not about being 100 % raw overnight. It is about adding as much healthy, ORGANIC food as possible gradually and leaving out the food that takes away your energy and health. Many, many issues or complaints will disappear as snow in the sun as soon as you eat 50% raw. From the moment on that you can reach and hold on to 80 %, your body will renew its cells and blood. It will become strong enough to heal itself from illness or uncomfortable symptoms you are suffering from but don’t know what to do about them.

Let’s have a look at what will make you feel so much better in no time, just by LEAVING OUT of your current diet what slows your body down. If you do this one by one, you will feel very clearly what has been affecting you all these years without realizing. Simply because we are brought up in need of our daily bread, that comforting sugar, milk as our white motor, alcohol to loosen up at parties, fish and meat for proteins, coffee as socializer in the company of a cigaret and cookies.

Don’t be scared. You won’t miss anything. Well you will at first, mentally, but when you dive into raw food you will be surprised by the great tastes and the wealth of nutrients that makes a difference in only a week. So yes, leave out following products and your healing process will start that very moment by a natural cleansing. In this transitioning phase, start incorporating as much green, organically grown, living foods and your body will ask for more soon and reject what is not good for you.

  1. First start to eliminate DRUGS, ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, SUGAR, WHITE FLOUR, SALT, MEAT & FISH, COFFEE, all processed foods. It might seem as an impossible thing to do and very radical. But you can take it slowly so you won’t experience the transition as “What is there left for me to eat?” TAKE THE TIME YOU NEED. For instance, if you eat meat every day, start skipping every other day and replace your usual menu by ┬ávegetables, nuts, seeds and fruits. Then decrease to two times a week and so on. Do this with each of these products and you will get there sooner than you think. The cleaner your body gets, the cleaner you WANT it to be. And remember that you are not giving up anything, but changing for the better, you are choosing for a gorgeous body and for your health!
  2. Now that you came this far, you will certainly want to leave out MILK, BUTTER, EGGS, YOGHURT, CHEESE, ALL ANIMAL DERIVED PRODUCTS. Why? All dairy products are mucus forming foods. Moreover milk is delivering more chemicals to your body than calcium. “But I love milk and yoghurt! I can’t give that up!” You will still┬ábe able to drink milk, eat yoghurt. But they will be made of raw nuts and seeds. You can make the most delicious milk in one minute! It will deliver you all the proteins and calcium you need for that day. So don’t worry. You will find easy, fast, delicious alternatives for every one of them AND feel better.
  3. If you are really motivated to GET RID OF TOXINS and you want to expedite elimination of toxins in your body, now is the time to start a DETOX WEEK on juices, smoothies, simple salads and mono fruit meals. No, you won’t be hungry because you will receive more nutrients than ever who will feed your cells and blood thoroughly.
  4. Now you can eliminate grains, crackers, bread and pasta, granola, stop cooking your foods by adding raw meals. An easy way to go is: START EVERY DAY RAW AND HOLD ON TO EATING RAW AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. Dinner is usually the meal that you will leave out as last one. But each day you have come that far is a great day already! You can’t hold on to raw at dinner? Start with a lovely varied salad before you eat your cooked food.

I bet you will feel energized already next morning. A FEW MORE TIPS to go through your transitioning phases smoothly…

  • The GREENER you start you day, the easier it is to hold on to your healthy lifestyle! The first taste or food your body receives is the one it will be craving and asking for during the rest of the day.
  • If you cook or steam vegetables, do it as short as possible.
  • Take the time you need and don’t force yourself. It has to feel comfortable, nice, challenging, encouraging, motivating. It has to be FUN!
  • Make some juices and/or smoothie(s) every day. It is the best way to get used to all the greens, receive more nutrients you ever had and to detox your body in a very natural way.
  • If you want to eliminate toxins faster, fast a few days on fresh juices (as many as you want or need) and add a simple but yummy salad to every drink as a meal.
  • If you want to take it slower but still effective, fast one day a week on juicy juices.
  • Make your meals as nice as possible, make them pretty, sit down in peace, and take your time to chew very thoroughly.
  • Have fun with looking for recipes that can tempt you.
  • Make some lovely chocolates and have them stored in your refrigerator so when you are craving, you won’t be drawn to old habits but to your very own creations.
  • When you feel hungry, eat a raw chocolate: it will satisfy you and stop your hunger.
  • Throw out all junk food and replace it by lovely fresh greens and fruits.
  • Always have enough healthy ingredients in the house.
  • Make a little bit more of special treats and store them in the refrigerator so they are within reach on difficult moments.
  • Try to read and gain knowledge as much as possible.
  • Start finding out about food combining (also on this blog) and use more foods that are easily digested.
  • It would be just GREAT if you would schedule some colonics to get rid of many pounds of lifelong plaque in your intestines. It will clean your colon, energize you, make you feel lighter (lose weight) and make you leap forward in this great adventure!
