Addicted to Chipotle, Going from Raw-4 to fully raw

More so looking for advice to give a friend, but I'm pretty much in the same situation, just not willingly ready to convert.

So say I'm pretty much following a raw till 4 vegan diet and want to go fully raw. However I'm still addicted and craving my favorite foods, especially chipotle.

How can I leave these cooked favorites behind and get over the addicting foods and cravings? And what's a good step to take from here after raw to 4?

There isn't so much of a getting over cravings but a replacing them with better foods which can become desirable. Finding the better foods that make us feel good could be a big part of the transition. It is really surprising how delicious certain whole foods are eaten simple. We have just been brain-washed - coerced into the world of junky foods, when in reality simple whole foods are the best in taste when prepared well and offer the best feelings. So we have to work on realizing that simple foods are where its at and don't let the influences divert the process of better changes. Break through with strength of mind (will power) and persevere continually.

Caring about our health is caring about our very state of being and future which is a very good thing to be seriously concerned about making the most of.

I do not concentrate on raw foods, but I have been vegan for a long time. Make sure you are eating enough calories. It is difficult to eat enough food, enough calories, raw vegan style. You have to eat pretty much constantly. Often the "cravings" are simply hunger. There are worse things you could eat than a veggie bowl at Chipoltes.
