Although I've spoken about the need to drink more water and eat more veggies and fruit in the past, the 'eat more vegetables and fruit' message and the 'drink more water' message cannot ever be overdone on this blog because these are two of the most important tips for losing weight and maintaining weight loss that I've ever come across. Recently I increased my own vegetable and fruit intake massively and it was only then that I realized how little of those foods I was really eating.
In fact I think I have recently become a serious raw vegan food enthusiast and one of the most important reasons for this is the results I'm getting from this lifestyle. The weight is dropping off easily without much effort; my skin is glowing and looks better than it has done for ages; I'm eating as much of these foods as I like and my favorite result is...I'm never hungry and I never crave the processed 'food' I used to eat in the past. I will talk more about this way of eating in some future posts, but in the meantime I'd urge you to look up 'low fat raw vegan lifestyle' on Google for yourself and start your own research....you might be pleasantly surprised.
