Hi Karen,

I am very proud of you. I worked out with a personal trainer for about 3 years then I severely broke my leg and was down for about a year and a half. I now have about 90% use of my leg and am ready to get going again. I am curious as to what kinds of workouts your trainer had you do. The % of body fat that you lost was fantastic!

Hey Karen

Think about logging your food intake as well as you continue on this fitness journey like you did at the start of your raw food journey. Would love to read about it.

This is so exciting to read this - thank you for sharing Karen :)

Brightest blessings,

Thank you everyone for your comments and questions.

Lilla - the dates were mixed up, now adjusted! Yes, a press up is a push up, and to be clear they're "lady" ones - with knees on the floor and pushing up using arms only.

Squawkfox - My diet has become less fatty naturally, nuts are far less, and seeds have stayed about the same, which has been "now and again." I think what has changed the most is that I am having more juice than before (green juice specifically), rarely smoothies and that's probably about it. The exercise has also made me consume more water, which also cannot be a bad thing! I also now find that I can no longer eat much nut-based ice-cream (about 5 tablespoons, tops). There was an initial mourning period, but now I am actually happy to have more or less given that one up as it was an expensive habit to upkeep : )

Hi Karen,
Congratulations on your awesome progress.

I lost more than 100 lbs changing from the Standard American Diet to a vegan, mostly raw food, diet.

I have been able to build a lot of muscle in the process, therefore busting the myth that vegans don't get enough protein. :)

Keep up the great work.
You are a fantastic inspiration.


Wow, Karen, look how much stronger you've gotten!! That must feel really good, cuz that you have to *earn*.



Wow - 10% drop in bodyfat! That's awesome. Can I ask what your training sessions comprise of? Is a "press-up" a "push-up?"

p.s. I think your second column should read "June" perhaps?



Congratulations! I would love to know how your raw food choices have changed...if at all. Less nuts & seeds? More greens?
