Ok, I have been following a fellow Sparkers blogs for sometime now. In fact I decided to go the raw food route, because of her.
First of all I miss her blogs. Her journey was one to be admired, with her determination to get to the goal she made for herself. And she did it with a Dr. at her side. She didn't do it without tests, showing where her statistics were at while she was on this journey. She is one person, and I believe what is good for one may not be good for another. You have to have common sense as to what works for you.
I myself, is a good example. I have had problems first out, with transition into raw fooding. So I adjust, I listen to people guiding me to what may help, or just to wait it out, because my body is simply re adjusting itself to the new diet.
But I must say, unless she is just renewing her Spark people status, and signature. I will definitely miss her blogs telling of her journey.
And at this moment I am not sure where I am going myself. I fought with myself last evening as far as whether I wanted to do the raw food thing. I like cooked food. I do like the Vegan path, and would still like to pursue that. And of course I would like to still do the smoothies.
But right now, I am at a fork in the road, as to which way I want to go. Whatever I decide, I will know it's the best path for me.

    I too am very saddened that Organic811LFRV was forced off sparkpeople. It is particularly sad because she was having so much amazing success - not just weight loss, but real measurable changes like reduced body fat, no more tremors, seizures, muscle tone issues. Also it is sad that we who enjoyed following her blogs were really having a great time and we wanted to see her make it to the finish line - only a few more days to go till she meets her goal of 92 days juice feasting. Yes! 92 days! There seems to be a lot of negativity around this whole thing. Let's just all try to make the best of the situation - support one another and keep on with our own explorations.

    Passionate people will always inspire many, but also challenge and frighten many others. I'm so sorry that she was a victim of the latter.

    I love what you say about listening to people. At the same time listen to yourself.

    That fusion idea is probably best. No need to be 100% right away - or ever - if you are as healthy as you want to be.

    I am still adjusting my diet. I was looking at going all raw but it may not be for me. Right now anyway, it doesn't fit in to my family life and that was causing me too much stress and my body was holding on to my weight. I am much more relaxed now. Eating raw 2 meals a day and sharing a meal with my family. Not even necessarily always vegan. That is my eventual goal but it might be awhile. Good luck to you. Follow your body rhythms and you will succeed! I know it!! You know your body!

    Why don't you use a fusion of the two? If you like baked oatmeal in the morning, but prefer a raw foods lunch. Just eat what you like from each of these lifestyles. :) Each person has different needs. If it doesn't feel right and natural for you, it's not going to be something for you to stick with. *HUGS* I wish you much luck in your journey.

    You are so right. We know our bodies better than anyone and what works for it.
