Next month I will celebrate five full years as a raw foodist.
Check out these before and after pictures.

Yes, I look pretty different! How did I do it? I got rid of nearly all animal products and the fog in my brain started to lift. As I let go of processed foods with their dyes, additives and chemicals I felt even better. Instead of tasteless, processed foods I focus on lots of kale salad and a quart of green juice or smoothie nearly every day. Instead of traditional dairy, yogurt and cheese, I eat almond milk, coconut yogurt and macadamia nut cheese. Its delicious and as you can see it shows!
On the inside I feel completely different too. Raw foods – fresh fruits and vegetables and healthful fats – changed my emotions and attitudes completely. I am definitely a happier, healthier, more youthful and energetic person now. I am sure that it is because of the food that I eat, but also because of the different people I now spend time with.
