Now that everyone thinks I am nuts, let me say this, "I really don't care". I feel better now, than I have ever felt in my entire life. This new diet is wonderful and I have so much more energy, and feel much happier.

I was not sure what to expect. I was doubting if I would really feel any different, or notice any changes.

The first little couple of weeks suck, especially when you start going through detox. Your body dumps all the toxins into the blood stream and it can make you a little sick. I had some serious migraines for about 4-5 days. I had some other issues, as well, which I will not be discussing

Detox didn't seem to last for a long time for me, but maybe I am not through it yet. I just have to continue drinking tons of water. I think I am going to upgrade my steel water bottle so I am able to carry more water to work with me. I may also get a second 32 ounce glass container to fill and bring to work with me.

It has been too long since I have posted to this blog. I have been posting to my backpacking blog much more often.

After doing loads of research on health, food, disease, medicine, and human history, I have decided to make another lifestyle change. Not only have I decided to become a Vegan, but I have decided to consume raw foods only.

Being a Raw Vegan has great health advantages. For example, Vegans have 65% less of a chance of getting cancer than someone who eats meat. Raw Vegans probably have even less of a chance than regular Vegans because they don't eat any dairy products. Aside from the health benefits, food prep time is much quicker, and you don't have to worry about cooking. I can grow and dehydrate my own foods too. I will only eat organic food now as well.

My plan is to start juicing, sprouting, and organic gardening. I am hoping to grow veggies, herbs, and spices all year long in the gardens. I am also going to plant some mini-fruit trees.

I never really ate much meat. However, I did eat chicken, and dairy products on a regular basis. So far it has only been just over a week since I have had dairy. I have not had any cravings, or regrets. I am already starting to feel more energetic, and healthier.

I also increased my water intake to 60+ ounces per day. This is necessary to maintain a good health. The majority of people are dehydrated on a daily basis and don't even realize it.
