Here’s an easy way to magnify your desire for better health, fitness or just about anything else that requires motivation. Lots of people are using this technique to make it much easier to succeed with the Raw Food Diet. Others use it to motivate themselves to exercise, lose weight and get fit.
The important thing to know is that it’s as easy to do as sending an email and can literally take you just five to ten minutes a day, but the beneficial results to your life will be astonishing.
Mind you, it’s not the only thing you have to do, but it’s a sign of a person who will usually succeed and it’s a sign of commitment to your self-mastery goal.
A common characteristic of people who eventually succeed with the raw foods diet is having their very own raw food blog. There are some people who use the blog as a 30-day trial. The idea is to stick to something for 30 days and see how you like it.
A side benefit is that usually within 30-days you will have changed the previous negative habit. In other words it’s easier to stick to a fitness program or a diet program if you’ve been doing it for 30 days straight. It becomes an automatic part of your life.
Good Raw Blog Examples:
Steve Pavlina a friend and coaching client had a successful 30-day raw food diet trial on his very popular personal development blog. He made a detailed post every single day for 30-days. You don’t need to put in nearly as much detail to succeed with blogging. But reading his posts can be helpful nonetheless.
Steve Pavlina’s Blog as Related To His 30 Day Raw Trial
In this link below you can hear me giving Steve an hour-long Raw Food Diet consultation.
Chris is another person who’s doing a 30-day raw food diet trial. I think he’s even taking before and after blood tests. Should be quite interesting. He’s one of my newsletter subscribers.

Now mind you, if you have loads of people posting to your blog and or forums, it could actually have a detrimental effect on your ability to stay raw. Why? Because of all of the mixed advice. Advice from people who think they know a lot more than they actually do. I saw that repeatedly on Steve Pavlina’s forum.
He got so much contradictory advice and much of it was plain wrong. If he were to try all of the things people suggested he try then he would have surely failed to stay raw. Luckily he had done a lot of training before going raw. He studied information I provided him and he did the consultation.
So here’s the other part of the success equation. It really helps to have a mentor or raw food coach to guide you to going raw.
Or if you’re goal is better fitness, to have a personal trainer guide you along the way. Don’t to read ten different books on fitness. Too much information can be as bad as too little. Try sticking to one program or one philosophy at a time.
I of course recommend my Lightning Speed Fitness Program for a convenient and time efficient way to get in great shape.
The key with having a blog is to help you become objective about what you’re doing. It also gets you focused daily on success. One of my top raw food diet students started blogging about going raw early on and she’s been 100% raw for over 2 years and 7 months. These days she helps others to succeed with going raw at her blog and forum.
Here’s Tommie’s Informative Blog:
I believe Tommie has posted at least something to her blog almost daily. Lots of new raw foodists are blogging as a way to help them stay focused and to succeed at going raw. Tommie lost about 70 pounds and has plenty of before and after pictures at her blog.
But there’s even more:
One of the psychological principles involved is that when you make yourself publicly accountable it adds an extra layer of motivation for you to succeed. You don’t want to tell the whole world that you’re doing a 30-day raw food diet experiment and then you all of a sudden quit.
I’m not saying you couldn’t quit if for some reason you felt you needed to. But it really helps in the motivation department when you’ve made a public commitment. I know it works for me. Heck if this is your first blog, hardly anyone is going to know about it anyway. Maybe just some family and friends.
Yet if you keep on posting, the search engines and blog search engines like Technorati will find your blog. You could eventually turn this into a moneymaker as well. You could sell raw foods diet related affiliate products and other related health and fitness products or services.
So there you have another reason to blog. There are several free blogs you can set up. An easy one to use is Google’s Blogger at https://www.blogger.com/start.
You can literally start blogging five minutes from now and at no cost whatsoever. Or you can set up an account with http://wordpress.com. That is also free.
Once you get serious, you’ll want to get your own WordPress Blog that is hosted on your own server, not theirs. That gives you the most flexibility and is better for higher search engine rankings.
Now getting back to another crucial point…
You see, blogging by itself is quite powerful for motivational purposes, but in most cases, it won’t be enough to overcome the forces of society, habits and misinformation. That’s why it’s important to get expert support or coaching as well when you first start off trying to go raw.
If you just blog, you’re doing better than most, but you could still have setbacks that could easily be avoided if you had a raw food coach guiding you.
There are so many little things that pop up, that having read a book about it doesn’t always help. You can’t ask a book a question.
Or you may forget what was discussed in the book. But when you can speak to or email a raw food coach or mentor that makes it so much easier.
How are you going to react when you start experiencing some detox? If you were like me, you might immediately (and falsely) blame it on fruit. The negative conditioning runs deep. It really helps to have an experienced coach to get you past all of your old BS nutrition brainwashing.
I struggled for five years trying to succeed on my own with raw foods. It was just me and my raw food books. And books by the way… that all seemed to contradict each other.
Had I continued without support from a raw food mentor, I doubt I would have ever found the right combination of ideas to succeed at going raw. With the right mentor, the right raw foods diet knowledge and with a raw food blog, you’ll make it easy for yourself to stay raw and thrive.
