A few people have asked what I typically eat during the week so I've detailed a weekly meal plan as a general guide as to how I've been losing weight.

As I said in my initial vlog, I am maintaining around 70-80% raw and the other 20-30% cooked.

I'm not a purist raw food eater.

I like having cooked foods and my research and experience has shown that I still get great nutritional benefit from steamed vegetables, seared fish, and some grains like oatmeal and quinoa.

My body tends to need more protein than what a pure raw food diet can give me, so I opt for vegetables that are high in protein like edamame beans, pinto beans, quinoa, nut butters, fish, and grains.  I fell more balanced.

My best advice is to listen to your body and get annual blood tests done from your Naturopath to make sure you are healthy.  Getting a general blood workup each year is something I've always done, even before eating more raw foods.  It really helps to tell you what's going on inside your body so you know how to take care of it nutritionally.
