Linda Loo’s Raw Transformation
Before going on Raw / Living Foods diet – 2005
Before going on Raw / Living Foods diet – Feb 2006. You can tell that age is catching up, as with most ladies after 25…
Before going on Raw / Living Foods diet – Mar 2006. Age is definitely showing, despite regular facial ad spa treatments at that time.
And then here comes the CHANGES…
3 Months on Raw – Aug 2006
1 Year & 4 Months on Raw – Sept 2007. After a mountainous hike, a Raw Meal and then ready for another hike!
2 Years on Raw – May 2008. Better than Botox & Liposuction!
2 & 1/2 Years on Raw – Nov 2009. Fresh out of bed, no make-up & not even moisturizer. People mistook me for a college student! Feeling & getting younger and younger!
4 Years on Raw – 2010
Honestly, there are just so many benefits I have from eating raw! The most obvious ones include weight loss, my skin became firmer and clearer, I look even younger now than I did 10 years ago! Oh yes, and my favorite one – my white hairs started to disappear!
Sticking to raw and healthy eating in Singapore, alone and “misunderstood” by many, is no easy feat. Even today, it is still not easy, but not impossible! I’m delighted to say that the hours of extensive research and distant learning, plus keeping abreast with latest raw food news, has continued to keep my fire alive. The more I learn, the more I felt compelled to share. Now my passion and fire burns even more strongly because my physical transformations were astounding!
And because I love my country, I wanted to reach out to fellow Singaporeans.
After I came back from the States, I was modifying recipes to local tastes because I got bored with the Western dishes. And eventually, I started creating raw versions of local dishes like “Ba Cho Mee”, “Glutinous Rice” and “Ondeh Ondeh” which wowed friends and family!
Despite fear and the natural human resistance to change, I gritted my teeth and pushed on in my journey alone. Then miracles started to happen. One by one, loved ones started to show interest and tried for themselves. Then more miracles happened! They started to notice how much better they look and feel and became even more interested. That was big motivation
What started out as hobby and passion, propelled me onto a new mission in life. And besides, it is much more meaningful to do it together than to do it alone. It is now a personal mission to make available training, skills and support to every learner, which will enable him/her to sustain on a raw food lifestyle for as long as they wish to!
So what kind of person am I and what kind of life do I lead now? To sum it all up, all I can say is:
When I’m not jumping for joy, I’m usually happy for no reason I continue to be amazed by the wonders of Mother Earth, the magic of our ecosystems, and the delicate connections in between. Never did a day passed without a new discovery about myself, my potential and creativity. My mantra now is to learn, grow and share!
Whenever people mistake me for a college student, or pay compliments on my skin, it gives me immense motivation. Gratitude wells up in me every time I looked at my past photos, and it is absolutely unimaginable to go Un-Raw!
Now can you see why I said its unimaginable to be “Un-Raw”? The best part is – its just so simple
Just like me, you can have soft fresh skin, abundant energy and reverse aging by the day. Even if you are motivated enough to take 1 raw meal today, you are already well on your way!
