I am a 39 French Buddhist nun. When I am on a raw plant-based diet, my life is totally different. I am happy, full with energy, and my spiritual life is just amazing. When I don’t, I am only obsessed with what I will eat next and with staying in bed.
I just finished reading your eBook, Health for Life, and I wanted to thank you for your amazing work. I have been trying to switch to a raw food diet for more than 4 years now, and always failed after a few weeks. Thanks to your book, I finally understand why: – Until now I wasn’t eating enough calories (only 1400). What I thought was detox effects (fatigue, depression) was, in fact, a lack of energy because I wasn’t eating enough. I have increased the amount of food as you advised and I feel so much better. – Also, I wasn’t eating enough green leaves. When I read your “at least two lettuce heads a day”, I realised my mistake. – The chapter about addiction is very helpful. It changed my perspective on what I thought was an addiction to junk food. Actually, this is just my body in pain from previous junk food ingestion. The first view seems hopeless while the second gives the solution: if I stick to this diet, the body pain and depression will just disappear and that’s it!
I would like to express my deep gratitude for the skillful way you share your knowledge and your experience. I hope your work will help a lot of people to succeed in eating a healthy diet and enable them to start living.
