100 Day Raw Food & Fitness Journey

100 Day Raw Food & Fitness Journey

Harvest Veggies


OK, we’ve decided to eat only raw food for the next 100 days.

A couple of years ago we started hearing about the benefits of going raw. Even though we have been vegan since 1994, and have never felt better, we thought we’d give raw veganism a try. Partly just for the fun it and partly because it makes sense.

I mean, humans are the only animals on the planet that eat cooked food. Isn’t it weird that we alone among the millions of animals cook our food and consider it normal. We are the exception to the rule.

It has been long known that cooking food destroys some of its nutrients. Eat raw food and get all the nutrients. Sounds good to me. We are both interested in living a long time. Longevity studies point out that the only real way to extend your lifespan is to eat fewer calories. The problem is that eating fewer calories makes it hard to get all the nutrients you need. The solution is eating raw food, nutrient dense foods.

Anyway, we are going to eat nothing but raw food for 100 days and see what happens. Woman Jogging away on Path


We both workout(cardio and strength training) on a regular basis so we are fairly fit. We are excited to see how eat a raw vegan diet effects our fitness level. We are both inspired by the athleticism of Tim VanOrden of Running Raw. He has shown that a diet of raw fruits and veggies and solid training is a winning combo. We can’t wait to see for ourselves.
