Today, I talk about what I am going to be working on during this challenge, and how excited I am about turning my body into a fat burning machine! I am ready for my physical transformation.
This was not an easy video to make, or an easy post to write. I know that this will rock the boat with some people here on RawFu, and in the raw food community at large. But you have to remember that only I can be my own health advocate, and right now, my main focus is to change my relationship with the raw food lifestyle, and to burn as much adipose fat as fuel as possible with diet and exercise. Like Rory said, I am going to give myself the care and love that I would give any person who came to me in this situation.
One thing I have learned is that one diet does not always work the same way in every person. I'm open to exploring what is going to work best for me, and what is going to nourish me physically, and also helping me break some of the raw food mental traps that I have created over the past two years.
Duringthis challenge, I will be lowering my percentage of raw foods in order to try to find some balance in my life, and to stop obsessing about food. I am looking forward to everything I have to learn.
Here are links to some information about the 51% raw food theory.

David Wolfe claims that even if your diet consists of 51 percent raw organic foods, your body will build a stronger immune system, and also tolerate up cooked food without treating it as a foreign invader. I heard him lecture about this in my Institute of Integrative Nutrition course.
