Why People Go Raw

Weight Loss – Nothing else has worked and they hear that this diet works well for weight loss. It works even without exercise. Some people can’t exercise until they lose weight so this helps.

Beauty – Healthier hair, clear skin, clear eyes, weight loss, skin elasticity and tone improvement.

Rejuvenation – Skin elasticity improves, healthier tissues and cells cause the whole face and body to look visibly rejuvenated totally naturally with no chemicals, surgeries, etc… Many celebrities know and use raw diets at times to stay youthful.

Healing – Again, nothing else has worked or people don’t want conventional treatments for anything from minor ailments to serious diseases. There are stories of people healing anything and everything with raw foods, juicing, and fasting.

Health – Sometimes these people find they have to stay on the raw diet to stay healthy. Some people go raw to prevent disease and aging, and to experience a high level of health and energy.

Food Allergies and Sensitivities – Many people are allergic or sensitive to either dairy, gluten, GMO’s, wheat, soy, corn, chemical preservatives, MSG, etc…If people have multiple sensitivities they may be lead to try a raw diet and enjoy freedom from allergies, sensitivities and their accompanying conditions.

Athletic Performance – Athletes find that their recovery time improves with vegan and raw vegan diets. They can then train harder and perform better.

Beliefs – Some people like the idea of eating only what is natural, what grows in nature, what hasn’t been tampered with or altered by man, by fire, by chemical or synthetic changes or processing.

Philosophy – Some people, upon hearing that you can just eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds think oh! That sounds really smart: just eat what you know is for sure healthy! And nothing else! Duh! It speaks to them, they try it, they like it! :)

Emotional Reasons for Weight Retention

Often we know what to do about our weight, but we just can’t seem to do it consistently enough to make a lasting dent. There can be many reasons behind this and they all involve inner work to find and deal with.

Some of these issues can be….

- identifying with your weight, feeling like you wouldn’t be you if you weren’t the size you are used to being.

- using weight as an excuse to not do things you want to do, for fear of failure.

- survival instincts handed down from family equating food with safety or love.

- control issues that we are managing with eating

- hanging on to negative emotions that slow down weight release

- fear of being too perfect

- fear of looking good

- etc

Every day on the 21 Day Raw Cleanse Program participants receive daily instructions via email which contain motivational reading and exercises that address the inner work many of us need to do to shift our mind-set to one that will allow us to truly take care of ourselves and be our best.

Even if you only use the Programs for this inner work, especially the first time around, I believe you will find it well worth it! This will set up the motivation to follow the menu plan and workouts on future sessions.

Our lifetime membership means you can take advantage of just the portion of the Programs that you want to and don’t feel the need to do it perfectly the first time.

Some of the inner work reading and exercises we deal with are….

How to Cultivate Happiness

Practical Tips for Positive Thinking

Shifting Core Emotions

Forgiveness and Weight Loss

Discipline and Fun

Opportunities for Growth

Time for Thinking

Accepting Your Reality

Learning from Life

Learning to Love

Increasing our Ability to Learn

Opening the Heart

Accepting our Humanness

Loving our Shadow

Listening Deeply

Creative Thinking

Inner Wellness

…..And More

Programming Your Husband

Question of the Week….

Dear Jinjee,

Hello, I have been wanting to do this so bad! I am overweight, have high blood pressure, asthma, high cholesterol, depression and FMS. Of course I am on many medications. The biggest problem I have is my husband. He is very negative about the raw food diet and wants me to have nothing to do with it. We have had major fights over it. I’m 56 years old and I can’t stand the fighting. I have tried to go about it slow, for example I was eating 80 /20 and he was still mad. I can’t go against him because he is my husband and that is the way I was raised. Can you offer any suggestions to help me explain how important this is to me and that I feel much better when I eat raw? Please help me :)

B

 

Dear B,

It sounds like a very difficult situation. I think what I would do is simply do what I need to do (a 100% raw vegan diet) and be as gentle as I could with my husband. Gentle, but firm. “Sorry honey, but this is what I need to do”. Don’t turn it in to a huge conversation or argument. Let him have his opinions and voice his concerns and express his anger and frustration or whatever else he needs to do. But just respond with the same very simple loving phrase each time. “Sorry honey, but this is what I know I need to do for myself right now”. Or some version that feels right to you, in your own language. This is called neurolinguistic programming and it is very effective. If you say a simple truth enough times he will start to believe it. He doesn’t have to believe in the diet. He doesn’t have to understand it. All he has to do is understand that you have made a personal choice for yourself and you are not going to go against your own decision, no matter what. That is every human being’s right, and he has no right to stand against you or try to change you. That doesn’t mean he won’t try. He probably will. But if you remain firm (but gentle) I believe he will back off, even if reluctantly. He may still give you bad energy as this whole thing may threaten or scare him in some way, but that is of little importance. This isn’t about him. This is about you doing what you know you need to do to stay alive. So you can rest assured that standing up for yourself in this firm but gentle way is the most loving thing that you can do for both of you right now. I hope this gives you the strength you need. Sending a prayer for your healing!

Yours, 
Jinjee

Cycles of Health

acycleofhealthAh, the chicken and the egg!! Which comes first, healthy eating, healthy exercise, or happiness? Well, as they are a cycle, you can actually punch in at any point in the cycle!

You can start by eating healthy. Suddenly the pain in your knees is gone. You can exercise again. You get happy! So you eat healthier, exercise more, get happier, etc…

Or you can start by exercising. Suddenly the life energy is flowing through you again. You naturally make better food choices to support that life energy. The result is happiness, then better food choices, then more exercise, and the cycle is moving again…

Or you might start by finding yourself happy. You ride this happiness and let it dictate better food choices. This leads to exercise, which leads to happiness, which leads to better food choices, and you are up, up, and away!

See if You Like It, A Jump-Start Health Tip

Lunch, Day 1, 21 Day Raw Cleanse

Lunch, Day 1, 21 Day Raw Cleanse

You have so many habits you’d like to change, so many ideas for healthy living you’d like to try….but don’t. Here’s a little idea; why not just try something for a day and see how you like it….

- Go raw for a day, and see how you like it

- Drink 8 glasses of water for a day, and see how you like it

- Exercise twice a day for a day, and see how you like it

- Fast for a day, and see how you like it

- Quit sugar for a day, and see how you like it

- Test out any lifestyle change you are thinking about making, but just for a day, and see how you like it

If you decide you like the feeling of being 100% raw for a day, you might also like to try going 100% raw for 21 days with our 21 Days Raw Cleanse starting Dec 15th.

In case you fall off the wagon due to the Holidays, you can re-do the program on our next 21 Days Raw Cleanse, held every 7 weeks, as the Program comes with a lifetime membership!

Use this session as a practice-run, a way to stay inspired to focus on your health during the season of tempting treats, and to learn some delicious healthy holiday recipes. Use the next session as your post-holiday New Years Cleanse!

The Early Bird Special is on until next Friday at http://21daysRAW.com (Get in on our low rates now as the price will go up in the New Year!)

In Joy,
Jinjee
