RAW VEGAN BEFORE AND AFTER DEVON. Lost 100 lbs in a year! At first I started exercising…still eating whatever I wanted. I went vegetarian, then vegan, then raw vegan. I’ve had people who haven’t seen me in a couple of months walk right past me and not recognize me. My pastor has even taken to calling me “skinny”! I was unsure about whether I’d be able to teach my classes with intensity only on raw foods, but as I’m sure you know…an apple or a tall cold glass of orange juice goes a LONG way.
