How Long it will take to convert to completely RAW Lifestyle.

This to answer one of my comments I received.  This is a tough one since the time period will fluctuate per individual and the willpower and motivation one person has also differs from each person to the next.  I still battle this myself and I know many people who have now been Raw for many years dealt with there own non-raw temptations for years before they were fully Raw and Vegan.  I also have heard many people on this planet of ours that thrive on a high raw diet with a percentage of cooked foods actually there is another diet or lifestyle plan called the Hallulah Diet that does just that 85% raw uncooked foods and 15% cooked foods. 
Many people also have been debating lately that a totally Raw diet may not be the best for everyone as we all have different body mechanics as in metabolisms differ, fat percentages are different so many people are not super active as eating Raw Living Foods does give you loads of energy.  As well as some people may just not be able to handle the conversion. 

I would say if this is something you need to do for your health and well being and possibly to lose a considerable amount of weight you may just find the extra bit of will power to overcome those temptations you may have.   For instance if you are a big meat eater say 3-5 times per week try going away from meats from 2 of those days make them veggie days, truly many companies do make substitute meat but I would not recommend this processed junk.  Many books have come out on raw foods and how to prepare some amazing creations I  however like just eating the fruits and veggies in there true unchanged form like God intended.  Like I have said in many of my other blogs truly the root to better health, a removal or reversal of illness, anti-aging qualities, and an almost never ending supply of energy is fruits, veggies and juices in the RAW!.

#1 All I can tell you is to get through the hard temptations is remove them from your home 
#2 Have plenty of fruits and veggies available to you,
#3 If you feel hungry but just ate have some water this will fill you up and curb the appetite or some nice herbal or green tea also works well for this. 
#4 Take the time to take care of yourself!!
 If your a person who is always doing everything for your family and nothing for yourself it is time to take some of that time and use it to pamper yourself or even go to the gym for a good workout, time to tell the hubby to take over for awhile or tell the oldest child if capable to watch over the younger ones.

Truly the culprit to your obesity could be that you never took the time to take care of YOU!.  Maybe it is time for that spa day, and to hit the gym with some of your friends or your mate and finally find the fit person you may have been in the past or have always wanted to be. 

REMEMBER IT IS NEVER TO LATE TO TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME AND MAKE A BETTER LIFE FOR YOURSELF-JUST LIKE THE NEW SEASON OF THE BIGGEST LOSER IS "NO EXCUSES" TIME TO STOP MAKING MORE REASONS ON YOUR LIST OF EXCUSES AND TO START CROSSING THEM OUT.  Simply changing your eating habits and watching what you eat can be the biggest change in what the scale has to show.

I remember watching a Dr. Oz episode many months ago and he made a very true statement if we all would only shop the edges of a grocery store and stayed away from the middle we would be making a very smart and healthy choice.  Simply put he was saying that all the foods that we should stay away like all the processed, refined, junk foods, and other chemically laden foods are usually pushed into all of the aisles found in the middle.  Where the fruits and veggies and other healthy alternatives are found on the edges.  That hit home to me since it is so true most every store you walk into the junk is in the aisles.

So I would say on average give yourself a 6 months maybe two years to fully convert to Raw. However if this is for someone that is dying of extreme obesity this can be done FAST and should be considered check out Youtube Videos on my site for Dave the Raw Food Truck Driver and also Bill at Rawfoodformylife. 

Remember one last thing you do not need to spending momney on all of these gadgets when you first start out yes a juicer is a good idea and a blender but stuff like a food dehydrator if your looking for simple and tasty just eat the fruits and veggies how they were created.   Some you'll love some you'll be like interesting remember just because you have never eaten it before doesn't mean you shouldn't atleast try it out.  Truly I keep learning new fruit and veggie trivia everyday just like supposedly there are over 300 types of kiwi in china in all actuality Dragonfruit could be one of those kiwi varieties that we see all over now, try these if you like kiwi and pear you'll be in heaven.

So to end this Blog every person converting to a new lifestyle or even trying a new diet plan will differ from one person to the next and what one person may get out of it the next may not.  However this does not mean that you should not try something that may make your life everything you have been missing who knows maybe there is a hot skinny healthy woman, or strong healthy fit man hiding beneath the layers of fat start chisling away with more fruit and veggies and just take it one day at a time also if you ever come to a point were you feel like your body is a standstill on the scale do not fret it is just your body getting used to the new you and once this passes more weight will come off.

God Bless and Best Wishes.
