When the excitement of trying the raw fruit and veggie diet wears off like last season’s fashion purchase, what do you do?
Cast it aside for the hottest new thing? Paleo perhaps? Or one of the latest Hollywood diets? Or even a Raw till 4 message, when you know you want to be eating fully raw?
We know what we should be doing – eating raw fruits and veggies for the best health ever – but we’re surrounded with so many and varied opinions about the path to health, not to mention so many exciting flavours to indulge in.
It’s hard, right?
I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I know I’m extremely impressionable.
The messages and people that I choose to listen to make a HUGE impact on my choices in the world.
If I start watching ads on TV for Dominos Pizza, I know it’s only a matter of time before I’m going to start craving flat food.
I recognized this weakness in me from the outset, and so I made sure (and still make sure) I’m prepared.
I’m not sure which genius said it, but the saying, “if you don’t plan, you plan to fail” has echoed throughout my life.
Knowing that I have a weakness around media messages has taught me that I need to be a conscious consumer of messages if I want to be successful in whatever area I’m focusing on.
Raw foods is no exception.
If I want to eat raw food predominantly then I need to listen to and watch those who have succeeded eating predominantly raw foods.
That was one of the reasons I created the RAWmazing Life Summit 2014. I wanted to hear a consistent message of the power of raw foods from a bunch of people who had successfully eaten raw foods for a significant period of time.
There’s nothing quite like hearing it from someone who’s been on this diet for 9 years, 20 years or more than 25 years.
These people have usually ironed out most of the wrinkles in the diet and have some compelling insights to share.
If you were able to listen to some of the RAWmazing Life Summit 2014 interviews then you’ll know what I mean. You would be extremely hard-pressed to not take something profound from each and every summit lecture.
The great news is that you can still OWN all of those 23 interview recordings so that you can listen to them over and over again, plugging yourself in to an extremely positive message about raw foods.
If you listen to the recordings on rotation, every time you go out for a walk, run or while you’re doing your housework, I guarantee it WILL affect you and your choices profoundly.
If you want to invest in your positive psychology and your commitment to health through Raw Foods then I highly recommend purchasing this set of interview recordings.
Most of these interviews are well over an hour, some close to 2 hours – so that’s over 30 hours of listening time absolutely packed with the best tips for your success on a raw food diet.
You can go HERE to access the recordings today.
Turn off the Bad News Box, the junk-food advertising factory, and your aimless meadering on FaceBook, and plug yourself in to a super positive message that’s going to rewire your brain for healthy living principles.
Conclusion – Consider that every choice you make is perfect in the moment that you’re making it. Going raw can be really challenging because there’s so much to learn and unlearn, but it’s certainly not impossible. There are thousands of people who go raw and stay raw every day. But sometimes it took them, like it took me, many many times of falling down and getting back up.
