A fact that I am very proud, but have issues with portion control and a serious sweet tooth. My goal for this year is to get down to 220 and out of the "obese" category once and for all.

Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.

So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!

Welcome to the Low Fat Raw Vegan team! That is so cool that you are a Green Architect! And I love the photo of what I imagine is one of your buildings. So open and airy.

Come on by the team and chat. Tell us how things are going, what you think of our comments, anything you want to discuss. The team is friendly and works best when everyone chips in.

Hope you have a rawsome day. Thanks for joining the team.
