As some of you may know, at the beginning of this year I made the commitment to go 100% Raw for 30 days. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I felt incredible, had more energy than ever, and felt a certain lightness that I’ve never experienced while eating other diets.
Since then, I’ve modified my eating to about 60-80% raw. Some of the challenges I’ve faced have been:
- How to manage sharing meals with a non-raw eater.
- Finding variety.
- Overcoming cravings for cooked and unhealthy foods.
My biggest challenge has been overcoming the social aspect of eating raw. Since my wife is not a raw eater (she eats a lot of raw food, but has no interest in being 100% raw), this was particularly challenging for me. Part of the way she shows love and affection is by cooking for me. I don’t want to take away that intimacy from our relationship, so I’ve compromised a lot of the time on what I will eat.
The reason I’m telling you this
I’m a firm advocate of having a social network of support whenever you want to make a big lifestyle change. I did this while making the shift to working for myself, and it helped tremendously. I’ve applied a similar approach with many other interests I wanted to pursue, but not with eating raw.
Since I’m trying to change that, I thought it would be cool to get raw expert, Nathalie Lussier, on the phone to answer my and your questions about what it takes to eat raw.
On the call we’ll be talking about:
- What eating raw means, and why it’s such a big deal.
- What to do when your spouse or partner isn’t raw, but you want to be.
- Dealing with social situations while maintaining the raw lifestyle.
- How to overcome unhealthy food cravings for good.
I’m really excited about this chance to talk with Nathalie, and get some of the insights she’s gained through coaching people to become raw.
