I don't think you should do it until your sure of what your getting into and that you really wanna do it for the right reasons...by going raw do you mean going 100% cold turkey for 3 days?
3 days 100% raw can be tough....you can kickstart your detox in 3 days and that's the tough part...most people are get their detox between a week and 3 months....going raw has gotta be something that you really wanna do to get through your detox/cravings
As far as muscle is concerned ...your not
gonna reap any rewards YOU want until your body has done it's job and cleaned itself out and that's why it's a long term thing....infact....your gonna
lose weight (retained water and cooked food fat) for sure...but that's all a part of your body doing it's job...plus....there's a lot that goes on both mentaly and physicaly too as time goes on that I don't think your gonna wanna deal with...
I wanna be more positive but I know that like me....you have certain goals and expectations and I personaly don't think that it's your intention to throw away everything you have now and start all over again
like I did
and I don't wanna see you get into it without knowing what your doing (false sense of security)....or what can happen...
Do some major research before you start....don't take any notice of how others do because going raw is too personal...what might work for someone else might not work for you....I think you would do great as a raw vegan other wise
Going raw is a total body over haul!
Having said that going raw is one of the toughest/best things I ever did.
As far as eating ...just eat your favourite foods!
