Would you like to hear what it is like to go on our 21 Day Raw Cleanse? Well, a young female athlete who is known as “Raw Vegan Hot Pants” did it, and blogged about the experience!
Here’s an excerpt from her Blog:
I wasnâ€™t necessarily expecting crazy results with the raw cleanse, but it worked out really well for me!
My weight did go down â€” something I wasnâ€™t sure I wanted to have happen as an athlete â€” but my strength has measurably gone up. Perfect for my goal of increasing my strength-to-weight ratio. My husband has noticed that Iâ€™m losing my belly fat, and Iâ€™ve received compliments that I â€˜look goodâ€™ and â€˜look rippedâ€™. Awesome! And of course, Iâ€™ve loved the food, and being reintroduced to great fruits and veggies (and new ways to combine them).
For those concerned about weight loss numbers: from doing the 7 Days Raw and 21 Day Raw Cleanse consecutively, Iâ€™ve had a total weight loss of 6.4 lbs. From what I can tell, Iâ€™ve been losing fat and not muscle.
The meal plans and shopping lists made everything easy to follow through on. I honestly didnâ€™t even want to cheat (aside from one social situation where someone had made a point of telling me that what they had cooked was vegan â€” and even then, I wanted to indulge out of politenessâ€™ sake, not because I wanted to eat cooked food). I am feeling wonderful physically, and mentally Iâ€™m feeling quite happy (the little less than perfect things in life are bothering me less). Iâ€™m also getting to sleep very quickly, and sleeping soundly.
The provided workouts in the program were great additions to my usual workout routine (weightlifting and building running endurance, as well as roller derby practices) when I wanted more movement, and had a nice range (from longer yoga workouts to short high intensity interval training).
Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll think of other things to post on my experience so far, but for now Iâ€™m getting ready to dive into the 28 Days Transition to Raw program. Iâ€™ll keep you posted!
