Day 70 of 100 Day Raw Food Challenge: WEIGH IN

I might look like I've had a rough day in this latest video, but I'm so happy to be here!

Today I do a weigh in, and I've lost 21 pounds in 70 days eating raw foods! I'm just thrilled, and wouldn't be at Day 70 without all of the awesome support from you guys.

I also talk about a typical meal day with Bunny, and about how I deal with making a non-raw (and non vegetarian) meal for my family each day in addition to my raw meals. (hint: Once a Month Cooking style!)

And I threaten to take another 100 Day Raw Food Challenge. Who's with me?!

Is it just me? Your video ended when you said, "I'm not committing to anything, but..."

and it ended! Did you do that on purpose? But what? Are you staying with raw?

Bunny Berry said...

WHAT?! No WAY, I wouldn't leave you hanging like that! Try watching the video directly on YouTube. Maybe there is something going on with the Blogger embed.

I'm Raw Food Power on YouTube.

Sorry for the technical difficulties. Just what I needed at the end of a long day. :)

I'm down. I'll go 100% raw with you for 100 days if you decide to do it. Let's tawk.

Lindsay said...

100% raw for 100 days? Sometime in August? Why not -- let me know if you decide to; I'm down with you and Penni :)

Yasue said...

I would do it with you Bunny. I've been mostly raw for a few weeks now but every so often I've have something cooked, like you. But I would really like to do a "challenge" where I could commit to eating only raw 100% and have that support from a group of us! I guess I would make a raw blog, too, seeing as I don't have one now...
My name is Malorie btw (I don't currently have any blogs on blogger). :)

Congrats on making it 70 days and losing over 20 pounds! So awesome and so great! And it took me 20 pounds to lose a pant size too. It's all good, right? :)

Here's to another 30 days!

I will stay tuned to see where you are at bunny. I am at like 32 days of my first raw food challenge ;) Going strong so far...

eve said...

Heya Bunny,
First things first: you're awesome :) Love the fun in your talks and the sparkle in your eyes.
If you're going to do a second challenge I'm with you! (& the rest)
Keep us bunnyberry fans informed :)

Hi Bunny - CONGRATULATIONS! You're doing so well :-) I would (((love))) to track 100 days with you if you decide to do that. I've been high raw these last month or so but not high enough for my liking. It's a weird dynamic to get into this out of challenge experience. At least in my book anyway. I tried 365 days and that blew up, but 100 days with you would be a blast! I'll even commit to making the videos . . . Looks like we could be a very large circle of people doing raw for 100 days & that would be a blast too. Lots of love, Antony xx

Hi Bunny, I have been trying raw on and off for the last couple of weeks. You have really been an inspiration and so.....if you commit to doing another 100 day raw food challenge. Count me in. I think it would be so much easier giving it a bash if I knew there was a group doing it together and supporting one another. Maybe I will even start blogging.

Hey Bunny
Congrats on your 70 days and all the weight loss. It takes me 20 lbs to loose a pant size too. I guess it's pretty average seeing Hihorosie's response. You're doing awesome!

Hi Bunny,

I'm in I've been to mostly raw since April with a few bumps in the road. I'm totaly down with doing the 100 day challenge with you and I know I can get my sister to jump on too. We both just finished a raw cooking class together and are so pumped to get started.

I think it is so awesome that you've lost over 20lbs. Just think since your going to start exercising also I think the next 100 you are going to feel even better. I'm also in with getting in a least 3-4days exercise with you also.

Rock on Bunny!!!!

RawkYouLikeAHurricane said...

I'm totally with you. This is just the kick in the behind that I need. I will spend July eating half raw and ramping up. August 1, I'll try to go all raw!

Heather said...

Congratulations, Bunny! Great job, and you're looking great! And you are just too funny. I noticed about 20lbs per pant size, too, maybe a bit less. I've been high raw/very high raw for the past year and a half now, but since I need to kick my weight loss into gear again, I've been thinking I need to get closer to 100% raw and really watch the fats. My boyfriend isn't raw, so it's tough making two meals all the time and sometimes I get lazy or run out of time and just decide to have some vegan cooked food. So, anyway, I'll do the next challenge with you - count me in! I don't have a raw blog, just one about my kitchen store, but maybe I'll post some entries about it there. Cheers!

i would totaly love to join u on the next raw journey u are amazing thanks for your kindness

Viv said...

Hey there Bunny Girl,

This one choked me up. Your progress and all the love....:) So happy for you!

I'm up for the next 100 day challenge.

To go back a couple of posts, I agree with you about the community here being friends (sure there are some wackos out there, but that's true in every culture). There's no way that I would have hung in here with this raw thing without you and the comments and some of the other raw food stuff on the net. Thanks so much. It's been a fun, raw ride!

Tons of raw love,

Viv (I may even reveal my real name :)

you have made me laugh and cry and I would love to join you on a 100 day challenge - I am also currently considering a juicefeast - what are your thoughts on juicefeasting? love Nicky

Good for YOU!

Please do another challenge! I need it badly! You have been very inspiring and entertaining. I've also been reading and enjoying the comments!

Hey Bunny -
Are you familiar with the 80/10/10 raw vegan diet & if so, have you considered it at all? That would take your challenge up a notch. Something to consider. The bulk of calories come from fruit. It makes a huge difference in energy level, clarity of mind,not to mention all the cleansing and healing that takes place. Maybe you could try it for the first 10 days of your next 100 day raw challenge? 80% of your total caloric intake from simple carbs - primarily fresh, ripe, raw fruit, also leafy greens and other vegetables; 10% max protein; 10% max from fat. Are you familiar with the book of the same name by Dr. Douglas Graham? I enjoy your blog but haven't kept up, so if you've already touched on this topic I missed it. Anyway, I think you're doing great! - Mary Laredo

Hi Bunny,
Wow! Impressive weight loss, attitude ... everything!

I would love to join you and the group for a 100 day raw challenge. I have been 80% raw for a while, but would like to kick it up a notch ... and having support sounds like the way to go. Just the fact that you will do another 100 day challenge and vlog it is great support to us out here with you ... lol lol.

Great going and looking forward to seeing how things wrap up with the first 100 days. You're my hero!

Bunny,

Been following your videos. I'm so game with a 100 day challenge. Not sure if I can do 100%, but definately as close as I can get. I think I'm going to have some blood tests done to see where I start and do them again at the end of 100 days to see how my body has changed. Can't wait!!

Thank you for sharing so much! I really do look foward to watching your videos each day! :)

Congrats on making it to day 70!

Jayme

Mermie said...

I am on another Raw forum
Someone there posted your link.
I would be interested in the next 100 day challenge.
You look and sound great.
You go girl.

cascaderaw said...

Oh, Bunny! I'm so with you on the next 100 day challenge. I stumbled on to your videos on You Tube. My kids are watching with me, too! They love raw food. Anyway...I am gearing up for August 1st by doing an Intestinal Cleanse and the Master Cleanse for the next 10 days. Bless you! I need this support to kick in my raw food lifestyle....This time for good....Keep us posted with the plan!

LolaBloom said...

Sign me up, I'd really love to start mine over, I have had a really rough go and I always, always do better with a support system. I've been more than inspired by your challenge thus far. Gather the troops!

Megan said...

Hi Bunny, I'd love to join in on a 100 day challenge starting Aug? I think it would be just what I need to get serious about a raw lifestyle :)

Wendi Dee said...

Congrats on the weight loss...and...

GO, BUNNY!!!! I'm super excited that you are considering another 100 days! I look forward to following your journey!

I've been away from the computer, so I'm catching up now with all your entries. I've missed you!

Lots of love to you!
