I'm pretty new to this forum, and also newly vegetarian. I went vegetarian primarily for the animals, of course, but some of it was also for my own personal health. I've lived pretty unhealthy since I was a small kid, but after getting a bit into my teen years, I started caring more about my health. A couple of months ago I dropped 15 pounds, then 10 more after going vegetarian in the start of january. So, I feel great about my body now, however, I'd like to make more changes to my diet so it isn't just about cutting out junk, but also about eating what's really right for my body. So I found my way to raw, living food. And I'm pretty curious
There's a small problem, though. I live at home, and whily my dear mother has been very understanding of me becoming a vegetarian, I don't wish to trouble her too much the last few months before I move away from home. So I was thinking.. Since I already eat breakfast and lunch out, it would be a lot easier to change those two meals and make them raw. But my question is, would two raw meals a day yield any major health benefits, or do I have to go "all the way" to get results from my diet? I don't seek to loose weight, and I will of course be monitoring my calories to make sure I get enough, I'd just like to get more energy and feel better.
Thanks for taking time to read my rather long post, and thanks for any answers you can give
