Hello Raw Divas!
Great job, great site! I was pointed to your
website in the class I taught last night in San Francisco,
where 2 ladies are doing your detox program.
Keep up the great work helping our world by
providing guidance, info, and by being radiant role models!
All the best,
I just love you guys. What a great book.
I think you are beyond genius and beyond wonderful!
~ Roe Gallo
"Your emails and publications are always so uplifting and cute, just for Divas! I am starting with a 10 day cleanse and I am going to try to be in control instead of my inner brat that always needs a treat for something. I am going to do my best toeat raw and a lot more green after my fast. I am going to do one day at a time approach. Thanks for your help and support. I know this is the right way to live and eat, I just have been waffeling between two worlds.2008 is my year of victory! Thanks again!"
Dear Amy and Tara,
I really welcome yor new website. I am so happy
to have another place to know more about the benefits of a
Raw Food Diet. I live in Argentina, and here there are few
references to this way of living. In fact, I am practically
a raw foodist and that is something that not too many people
I would love to improve my diet and am becoming
better every day. Please do not hesitate to contact me should
you need any assistance in Argentina.
And again, thanks you for the opening to women
a great healthy web!!!!
web page of yours and Amy's is turning out to be fabulous
!!!! I love it !!!! Makes me feel good everytime I go and
check things out. You guys should be very proud of yourselves.
You guys deserve success !!!
Hi Amy and Tera,
I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks
for your great website! It's AWESOME!!! I will be doing the
raw detox with you!
My name is Melanie and I have been interested
and involved with "alternative" health in my own
life for over 30 years. I have done the gamut of all diets
and have water fasted for 14 and 21 days; once with Dr. Fuhrman
and once with Dr. Scott. I now mostly eat vegan and many raw
foods, but not 100%. Of course I get off track at times, like
now, but am looking forward to the detox. For years I was
involved with Natural Hygiene and went to their conventions.
I look forward to being part of your group!
I am a raw foodist (6-1/2 years) living in good
old TO and I just heard about your beautiful new business
I just wanted to tell you both that I love your
website, your blog and your friendly and very inclusive way
of writing. I also really like the way that you are building
a community. Many congratulations and keep up the great work.
I wish you both much joy, happiness and success.
Hugs to you both,
Wow- Thanks so much- you are both so very very special and I have appreciated you both so much this 2007 year-- Thank you both for starting this unique business of helping others and sharing. Always sharing. And last but not least-- Amy- Yikes- what a wonderful artist you are- simply amazing. HAPPY NEW YEAR DIVA'S!
~ Sherrie Humphry
Hi Tera and Amy,
I sent three friends an email to join us and
called them so they are on board too. I am excited. I miss
our time in Body Enlightenment. I am glad that you are starting
an all- ladies program. Very cool.
"THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!
...........for the 2008 workbook!! I really appreciate it - it is simply beautiful!!
I just today started to work on my Dreamboard for 2008 (better late than never)."
Hugs, Kisses, Love and Best Wishes for 2008!
Tera and Amy,
I'm really loving your e-mails
and I look forward to the 7 day detox. I haven't succeeded
with a raw food "diet" yet and I'd like to very
much. I'm 54 and all of a sudden it seems that the signs of
aging are appearing: weight gain, elbow tendonitis, not sleeping
as well, exercise laziness. Holy crap! I'm ready for a change
and I'm finding your e-mails supportive, light-hearted, serious
and empathetic. Keep them coming! Thank-you for creating a
raw site by and for women.
Love and hugs back, Julie
My name is Kate and I am a yoga teacher and
grad student here in montreal. i have been hooked on raw foods
since july of 2004. I wanted to offer you my support and congratulations.
"Thank you Amy and Tera !!!! What a wonderful New Year's Gift. We only have another 3 1/2 hours until midnight ... how exciting !! Wishing you both a Rawsome 2008 !!"
Love and Hugs,
The raw divas are amazing! You are the
catalyst for fundamental change in my relationship
with food. Thank you thank you thank you....
I signed up for 7 day detox.
A couple of years ago I lost 50 lbs. and have maintained that.
I am 57, have bone on bone arthritic knee and sagging skin.
I have played around with raw and maintained what I have lost,
but seem to be treading water. I am addicted to cooked food.
Raw breakfast and lunch, but then when I have to cook for
carnivore husband I eat cooked sometimes. Not especially meat
but veggies, mashed potatoes. I KNOW RAW IS THE WAY TO EAT.
I DO SO WANT TO DO IT. I feel like if I could get thru 2 weeks
I would have a good foothold. So far I can't seem to get 2
days in a row. Is there any hope for me? I do really think
an all women thing is really good. Noone else would really
understand what we are going through. Thanks for your emails,
they are very encouraging.
Love and Peace,
Dear Raw Divas,
Thank you so much for opening
the door to so many of us raw divas! I am excited about your
web site. Good luck in your new adventure!
Your website is absolutely beautiful, fun, whimsical,
exciting and informative.
I too am a raw foodie and commend you on your
creativity and business savvy ideas.
I am so excited to see you back in action. Your website is
fabulous, such great energy!!
Thanks so much,
I browsed through your www.therawdivas.com web site, and found
it informative, colorful and fascinating. I will browse through
it more when I have a bit more time.
I wish you much success with both ONE Group and The Raw Divas
By me finding out about your program through a blog, you've
gotten my wife so excited that she registered to get all the
information on her own computer! This is the first time in
a long time that my wife has been excited enough to do something
healthy about her diet with me. We've been doing Tai Chi for
a little over a year now, and hopefully this will be the 2nd
great step toward a healthy life!
Once again thanks for all the
support and inspiration. You girls are terrific!
Your humility and openness.....willingness
to be aware, honest, and responsible is indicative of a highly
evolved being. It's an honor to be a part of this group.
~ Vicki Craine
Why would a guy want to ever
be associated with a bunch of "Raw Divas". Sorry,
but sitting around a table, belching, drinking beer, and talking
about sports, followed by consoling each other over the death
of a friend while ignoring the fact that we're all eating
the same foods as the dead guy, just isn't as exciting as
spending time with people who are concerned about living!
The Raw Divas don't care who you are. They don't
care about where you come from. They don't care about your
race, color, creed, or sexual orientation. They're concerned
about you being you, and living life to its fullest through
a positive, and fun approach to eating combined with personal
expansion. My wife and I did the 7 Day Detox, and had a wonderful
time. Not only did we feel better, but it brought us closer
together. We worked together in food prep, and making healthy
choices. They provide a solid base through the 7 Day Detox
for someone who is interested in living life to its fullest!
The enthusiasm of Tera and Amy is so refreshing.
I didn't stop smiling for hours after their teleseminars.
The Divas have developed a community which deserves to grow!

High Heels Newsletter
GREAT GREAT GREAT newsletter!
fun! fun! fun!
luv it! luv it! luv it!
~ Shannon Leone
Hi Tera and Amy,
Thought you should know, I think
the material is very colourful and informative. The 7 Day
Diva Detox booklet is great. I have to say I already knew
all the information, but I like the way you put it together.
It's simple and doable, which will make it easy for a lot
I've been so busy making raw meals for clients
and classes that I teach, that I forgot how simple it should
be. Thanks for reminding me.
Take Care and Lots Of Love,
Hey Tera and Amy,
I know how very busy you must be, but…
I just had to tell you once again how very beautiful your newsletter is and I just love the format, colors and information.
Keep up the good work,
BIG SMILE AND BIG HUGS TO YOU BOTH
Have read, re-read, and forwarded your astute and timely article in the recent issue of Health in High Heels on tolerance among the leaders of the raw food movement.
You make several strong points that we'd all do well to remember.
• Regardless of the 'level' of the raw food lifestyle we have attained or hope to attain, there is so much more to our lives than our meal plan.
• And certainly what's right for one may not be what's right for another.
• Banding together in a truly united spirit of brotherhood / sisterhood will do more to further the cause than divisive chest thumping and soap box ranting.
Thanks for speaking out and thanks, too, to both you and Amy for founding a company that strives to be inclusive.
Exclusivity will not change the world. It will only alienate the very folks we aim to help. Keep up the great work and know you are highly esteemed and much appreciated.
Hello Tera and Amy,
I loved this newsletter and I can't wait to try the gazpacho
soup, it sounds divine. Thankyou.
Love and Warm wishes,
7-Day Diva Detox
I so want to encourage the divas to hang in there. Today I weighed 36 pounds less than when I started, I am so happy with my results. Thank you both again.
Blessings to you for all you are doing, please do not stop, you are helping to change lives.
Girls Girls Girls,
You ladies are amazing. Truly wonderful and
I wish you both the best of luck with this new business. What
a brainstorm. What a wonderful ideal.
You have both been such a tremendous support
and encouragement. I am going to look into the BES
but I wanted to take a moment to thank the both of you. I
have been RAW over a year and had slipped a bit lately and
this DEXTOX was exactly what I needed. THANK YOU both very
much. I have loved the dailey e-mails : ) I find I run to
my computer after work just to read them. I
will miss that. Thank you both for coming into my life in
a special way.
Hi Amy and Tera,
I"m on day 4 and all seems to be going well. This is a very revealing exercise is how I relate to food. My journal has been dedicated to this topic ;)
The only thing I can share at this moment in terms of recipes, is that when i am blending a drink with kale or swiss chard, I like to throw in mint to just cut the overly "green" taste sometimes. It's really just a preference thing, because there are days that I just love that great earthy taste. Herbs like mint, parsley and coriander do the trick for me.
Lots of love to you both.....you are two amazing women, mothers, lovers and entrepreneurs!
have had so many amazing things happen since I started the
Detox that it's almost impossible to believe them myself...tinnitus
gone, high blood pressure gone, high blood pressure meds (3
pills/day) down to 1/2 pill/day and soon to be gone, 12 pounds
gone, rough, cracked heels gone, shoulder and knee injuries
almost gone, depression almost gone. It has been a fantastic
week and a half, that's for sure. These are problems I've
had for years, and they just went away...so quickly (and at
my age, too).
Thanks again to you and Amy for providing this
Detox plan for all of us. I will always be grateful that you
put me on the path to good health and gave me a road map so
I could make it happen.
I just wanted to thankyou for the awesome work
you are doing to help us ladies out there. I am feeling great,
and cant BELIEVE how great I'm feeling (and looking!!) after
just a few days. I have cheekbones again!!! I know thats a
weird thing to say, but as a German-Australian, I seem to
put weight on my face first - its the first sign of toxicity
for me. I feel amazing, and I've even noticed everything about
me has become more regular and healthy. Its been really, really
hard because I'm living in the South of Australia (Melbourne)
for the first time, so I'm in Winter. I have a bloody awful
flu that I cant shake, but I'm getting out there, pumping
fruit and veg and pilates and swimming into my routine and
even though my head's still foggy from being sick, I feel
physically so much lighter! Its a blessing to have your support.
Thankyou for doing what I should've done myself - you are
both wonderful, angelic innovators!!!
Thank you again, you rock!!
Thank you lovely ladies,
I am on my fifth day and am rather proud of myself as I have never done a detox or anything like this before.
It has gone well and thank you for all your wonderful support, it is truly a pleasure to be here.
Thank you, thank you thank you again,
Love and thoughts,
I loved sharing the detox experience. I felt
amazing during that week and wasn't hungry which shocked me.
Unfortunately I spent the following weekend with friends and
had sugar overload which my body hated but it does show that
a diet without sugar is far better for me.
First, I would just like to say BRAVO!!!! The 7 day detox
literally changed my life. As I told you on the final call
I lost 10 pounds...but that is not the kicker. I lost those
10 pounds during what would have been my PMS time. Usually
I GAIN weight. Actually, I did not even realize I was PMSing
because I did not have the usual symptoms. It sort of just
snuck up on me, and that has not happened in years. I am not
experiencing the debilitating tiredness either. I know without
a doubt it is because of the detox.
After the detox I have continued to eat consciously. I know
I will never go back to the way I was...I can't
I would like to know when the next BES will be offered, for
my situation will be much improved in a few weeks, just not
in time for the start of this one. I would love to do it and
will pay FULL price!!!
Thanks for all of your support, I definitely plan on joining
the Sisterhood until I can do the BES.
Dear Tera and Amy,
The "emotional eating" e-mail is
fantastic. Everything you send out to all of us is fantastic!
You're fantastic! I'm so excited to be doing the de-tox with
700 other women. There was a book in the 70's that was the
"bible" of the women's movement for many of us;
it's called "Sisterhood is Powerful". Fot the first
time in a long time I'm feeling that same surge of group sisterhood
energy that was so important to me back then. Wow! Divas Unite!!!
Amy & Tera:
thanks so much for the 7 day detox. I had been struggling
with my diet for several months and had just about given up
on going back on raw until your program came along. I'm back
on, 100%!!! It's day 5 and already my skin is glowing, I'm
sleeping better and I'm not obsessing about food. This is
I'm better able to focus on much more interesting
and exciting things in my life now. Who wants to waste their
time thinking about food and recuperating from overeating?!
Not me! There is so much more to do in life and I'm going
Hi Tera and Amy
I was very excited to see your new website
- I have been feeling lately that I need more encouragement
along the way.
18 months ago I went 100% raw for medical/weight
reasons and was so so surprised and excited about the results
I couldn't keep my mouth closed! I didn't intend to tell anyone
what I was doing. I have two young girls and have always been
very careful about going on "diets". In the end
I had a handful of friends going raw not long after my first
month. Two of my close friends have stuck it out.
I can't say I am very happy with what "stuck
it out" looks like for me at the moment - I am sitting
at about 50% and it is not enough for my body. A few kilos
have snuck back on, my energy levels have dropped and a few
aches are coming back. Time to up the ante!
Looking forward to the kickstart your detox
is going to give me!
Hi Tera and Amy!
I was very excited to see that you were starting
a Diva Raw Food site engineered by women for women. Not that
it isn't important for men to eat live foods too but, women
and men both have unique needs for their bodies. I always
enjoy the understanding and kinship that you experience when
women join energies together towards a common goal.
I am looking forward to the 7 day detox and
the journey with both of you towards better choices for my
Blessings and best regards to you both!
I wanted to let you know how much my sprouts
have sprouted and i'm enjoying them sooooooo much... so crunchy
and yummy... they have helped immensley.
i have learned a lot from the detox, especially
about reading my body. Thank you so much for sharring your
love of raw foods with us. I plan to continue with your sampler
of the 30 day program you offered and look forward to my continued
progress of thinking with clarity, acknowleging my emotions
and pausing to understand them, the productivity and use of
my time, increased bowel movements, weight loss and more direction
and purpose with my life
Thank you and best wishes for continued success
and bringing on board all those of like thoughts.
I just wanted
to thank you for offering the detox and I am so excited to
begin. I just wanted to say thanks and am excited to learn
and lose from you.
I'm really looking forward to a lovely little
clean. I have just come back from a fasting retreat in France,
but I feel so lovely, that I just want to carry on feeling
this way! And I think this little cleanse sounds great.
I'm excited with you!
Thank you so much for putting it on. Hopefully,
I can convince my Mum to join as well...finger's crossed.
GOOD MORNING!!! This may just be the morning air talking (hee hee) or the sound of the birds chirping that has me giddy...but I am so happy to have joined Raw divas!!! I mean what other site can give you so much information, reply faster than a speeding bullet to any and all of your questions, and allow you to continue on with an awesome program free of charge! I could run around the house stark naked and scare all my lizards (and furniture) if I was not still sore from the workouts this week!!! Thank you for everything! I absolutely want to do the next BES...and next payday I am upping my subscription!!! Love it...love it!!! Blessed be and Happy New Years!
~ Love Selina!!!
I'm so excited that you have started this community
of women. Especially Raw women, as I have found it very difficult
to be raw on my own.
Thank you so much. I knew when I "met"
you through the Body Enlightenment program and spoke with
you on the phone that we would continue to reconnect at just
the right moments in life. You are a blessing to me and I
With love and gratitude,
Hello there Raw Divas Extraordinaire!
Thank you for a lovely book! Here I was looking at my Create 2008! note book thinking that I needed to make my scribblings clearer and held together with a clear line of intent and your present arrived in my email box. What synchonistic timing!
Wishing you and the Rwa Diva program the most wonderful refreshing, revitalising and deliciously raw 2008."
Hello Tera and Amy,
thank you for your most encouraging words with
visuals :) I am so ready and look forward to starting the
Thank you both for all your help!
AWESOME job on the call tonight! I am so ready
for this week!
Thanks again for tonight. You girls ROCK!
Hugs from Florida!
Tera and Amy,
It's Jayna'. I would reccommend this detox for anyone who
wants to get a control over their eating and anyone who wants
a break from the "What to eat what to eat?"crisis.
On the 7 day detox, I conquered some emotional reasons behind
why I eat, lost 4.5 pounds and gained tremendous energy. I
overcame my huge dependence on fat in my 100% raw diet and
realized that I have to work at keeping it out of my diet
in such large quantities. I fell in love with just grabbing
and eating fruits....green smoothies.....life itself.
If you are thinking of doing the detox...do it!!! YOU ARE
Dear Raw Divas!
Last night call was great- I can't wait to see the the 30
I love the gift also- you ladies rock!
My 7 day detox experience was wonderful!
Even though I was a raw food eater for the past 2 years, I
did not realize how unbalanced I was eating. I consumed way
too much fat(avocados and nuts) and too much salt.
This detox program made me realize the
importance of balance even on the raw food diet. Thank you
very much! I would not have discovered this without you! Thank
you for the support through your daily e-mails and the beginning
and ending teleconference. I had fun!
Keep up the good work!
From your ever grateful friend,
Hi Tera and Amy,
This detox week has truly been life changing
for me. I considered myself a healthy eater, but I never felt
good. I had back pain, sinus problems and never really had
great energy. I cannot believe that after just one week I
could feel so different. I have been walking everyday with
no pain. My head just feels so clear. I have been sleeping
through the night which I didn't do before, and I have been
remembering my dreams every night. After feeling this great
you do not want to go back to eating the wrong kinds of food.
This was an amazing experience for me. What a wonderful program
you have created. You have given everyone who tries it, the
gift of good health. Thank you so much.
am totally excited and can hardly believe I am doing this.
I just wanted to also tell you, this is my time....I have
wanted to do this for four years and it was the detox with
everyone that did it! I cannot thank you enough. I feel wonderful
and feel good about myself and my eating for the first time
in my life, finally after 60 years, it is about time I think,
but never too late. The weight is a bonus of course, but eating
right...nothing can compare with how I feel. Thank you thank
you thank you again!
Wishing you the best...
Thank you for these aids. I am
very excited that I have the chance to participate, i was
recently diagnosed with ms. I have notices already that my
gait has improved and my balance as well. I am hoping that
even after the 7 day detox the raw food diet will conitue
to put the sympoms in remission.
Thanks for all the encouragement you are sending,
and your e-books where FANTASTIC, thank you for getting me
back on track, although I have been eating raw foods off and
on, sometimes its been more off than on.
Well that's my 24 hour fast done, I'm off now
for some watermelon, its been freezing down in the fridge
for a day or two.
You and Amy are SIMPLY THE BEST, so I will raise
a glass to you both (watermelon of course).
Angel Blessings with the Fairies,
You ladies rock!! I"m so
impressed that you listened to a particpant and then adjusted
your "program" accordingly. That is lovely and it
completely fortifies my belief of your divahood!
~ Kim :-)
Lot's happening in my life but being focused and eating with
intention is a major shift for me. It has shifted the experience
of eating food along with that of my family. Our relationship
to food will never be the same. The food is alive and juicy
as you divas would say :-).
I love your encouragement, and thanking all who contribute
to the community (forum) is great as it puts it out there
for others to join in!
I am loving this experience! I have my sister on board and
it is amazing to see her, and even my teenage son, say "mom
I want to eat raw, make me some too" . The cravings are
still there for us now for the other foods but wow...speak
about perfect timing...now we have the lastest newsletter!
The Raw Divas rule!! You are awesome!
Thanks is a small word for all BIG things you are up to; you
are touching the lives of many women & men :-).
Thank you SOOO much for creating the Raw Divas
website!!! I had never found a website geared to us "divas,"
and it was so thoughtful of you to spend all of that extra
time, labor, and money to create an arena for us "raw
chicks" for FREE! (That shows you truly care!)
I'm excited about listening in the Body Enlightenment
System tonight! By the way, I did great on the "detox,"
as I've been total raw food girl on the high fruit diet for
over 2 months now! I could never go back! What's amazing is
that this is the way I have always wanted to eat, but I didn't
know if it was "healthy." (Quite comical, don't
you think? :) Due to switching to raw food, I have completely
overcome my hypoglycemia (praise the Lord!), as I could not
even eat one piece of fruit without my blood sugar making
me extremely dizzy.
Keep up the good work, and know that we appreciate
Long Island City
Midway through the 7 day detox,
I'm delighted I found you.
To say 'thanks', I'm spreading the word: www.foodiefumblings.blogspot.com/
Now, off into the homestretch.
Thank you so much. I wanted to
drop a quick note to say how glad I am for what you are doing!
The detox has helped so much. The biggest thing is to bring
me back into self control and really look at how much I had
been eating and don't need to eat!
I am in shock!!! Very, very
excited but completely in SHOCK! I never win anything. I KNOW
this is a sign that I MUST continue on....I am so happy right
I have to tell you my wee story: My sister led
me to your site (thank you Jill!) and I quickly signed up
for the 7-day detox. To be honest, I'm a pretty spontaneous
person anyway...and I didn't even know if I would be able
to follow through but I HAVE DONE IT!
Today is my 5th day of completely raw (I did
have a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar on my salad Monday
night) and I can't tell you how amazing I feel and look.
I know it's not all about the weight issue but
I have lost 8# so far (and for me that is fabulous, because
I have about 22 more to lose and KNOW if I continue on ...I
will do it!)
I also have glowing skin...
I can't believe how many "insights" and "enlightenments"
I am having...
I am ACTUALLY able to identify between CRAVINGS and HUNGER
and that is a miracle in itself!
I have amazing energy
...and I am so happy that I won! Thank you!
Thank you! Thank you! for this opportunity!!!!
P.S. I absolutely love your site and all the
beautiful literature you put out (way to go Amy!) Over the
past week, I've been to numerous RAW sites and I still love
yours the best! The forum ROCKS!
lovely Raw Divas
Well much to my surprise I lasted the 7 days!! Quite a feat
when you are eating different food from your children and
they are eating everything you used to! It has been tough
to keep raw on the coldest week in about 30 yrs in Sydney!!
I want to thank you for such a great program! I will not be
moving totally to raw foods eating 100% but I will be have
2 meals raw, 1 cooked as a way of living more healthily and
with more energy from now on. Thank you for the assistance
I wish you and your business the very best.
Thanks for all your help making
this past week truly memorable! I WILL be incorporating more
raw and whole foods into my diet on a daily basis - thanks
Hi Tera and Amy,
Thank you so much for the 7-day detox, it was
great, and for me it was not so difficult to do. I've done
fasts before, (one was a week-long veggie/juice juice fast),
so I knew that I would not have too difficult of a time. I've
been a vegetarian for a long time too, so going without animal
products was not a problem.
I have become very much interested in the raw
food regime, and have been able to be raw for most of the
day, but dinner time was always the hard part for me. The
7-day detox has encouraged me and made me feel confident that
I can do it if I try, and try I will, although my goal is
not to be 100% raw, since I believe that some cooked food
(such as a baked sweet potato) in the evening along with a
large salad is actually beneficial.
Knowing that the support is there if I should
need it is comforting. Thank you for all you do, and good
luck to you in this exciting adventure you have started.
I think the detox is fabulous
and I've have several people who 'say' they plan to sign up.
I've had many compliments on "how well" I look.
I'm not falling far off the wagon!
Start grinning Divas!!!
Both Bob and I are doing great since the detox. We have been
eating raw foods, and Bob is making a few dehydrated raw items,
also... like Onion "Bread" and Raw Corn Tortillas.
He also made an awesome raw Eggless Egg Salad which was good
added in with the veggies in the sandwiches and wraps. We
are, of course still eating lots of fresh fruits and big fluffy
green salads and green smoothies!!! I have had a frozen dinner
since the detox... but I did not enjoy it. I did enjoy going
out to my favorite restaurant (Vietnamese) the other day with
my in-laws, but I do have to admit, I can FEEL the difference
between eating dead and live foods, now! Bob has been 100%
raw since the detox as far as I know!!!
Thanks for your support!!!
Hi -- I'm doing great on the
detox, feeling fine. Thanks -- and your detox program is great.
I' really feeling the difference with no fats or oils, clearly
i have been overdoing them. Food has been tasting AMAZING
since the fast...salad dressings with oils really mask the
natural flavors of the food.
~ Regan Brown
Hi Tera and Amy,
I am LOVING the detox so far. Although I am 100% raw and have
been, this is just what I needed. I needed the break from
fat. After the water fast...watermelon never tasted so good!!!!!!!!!!!
~ Detox Diva Jayna'
P.S. I feel amazing
Body Enlightenment System
I really, really need this round
of BES. I saw your advance menus and they look fabulous.
BTW, it's worth the price. It's $10 a day and
most people have a starbucks habit that bad. I'm walking away
from that much chocolate and cheese (well, maybe not THAT
much, but quite a bit!), so don't think you're overcharging.
I'm SO excited for you guys and this raw diva
thing. It's really, truly hip and fabulous.
Do you get First magazine up in Canada? I never
read it, but i saw something in the grocery store line about
enzymes in it so I bought it out of curiosity. The lead article
was about raw food. It's great to see people getting into
such a smart way of eating.
Anyway, congrats on a great looking program
and it IS worth the price.
When I first heard about eating raw I thought it involved carrot sticks and celery so it didn’t appeal.
It’s now about 10 weeks since I did the 7 day detox and have just completed the BES program.
In that 10 weeks I’ve let go of 16lb which means I can now fit into my favorite blue trousers again.
But more importantly I feel so much better. Gone are my sugar cravings, gone are my hip pains, gone
is the heartburn I used to have. I feel like I’ve decluttered my body and it’s continuing. I feel
lighter physically and emotionally. I’ve experienced shifts in the way I’m being in the world. I feel
more open on all levels. I’m hooked. Far from the carrot sticks and celery I imagined, I’m now
organizing raw pot lucks in my local area and I love this way of eating – it’s a whole new world.

The BES program has been a fantastic 30 days of scrumptious raw eating and living.
Who would have thought that in only 30 days I would have:
- Dropped a dress size
- Gone from struggling to run 2 km to running 5 km with ease
- Softer, shining hair and skin
- Bright sparkling eyes
- Full of energy
- Lost my cravings for chocolate
- Increased my productivity
- Achieved goals that had been put on the back burner
- Learnt what foods give me energy and which ones slow me down
With all the tools and support provided this program is a great way to get started or reassess your raw food diet. The program is full of delicious menu’s and recipes, a fitness tracker to motivate you into daily exercise, a daily planner to help you set and achieve your goals and review your progress, the on-line forum to get invaluable support and advice from other’s on the program and your own buddy to share your experiences with throughout the program and beyond.
Thank you Tera and Amy for putting together such a well organised and motivating program.

Tera and Amy,
Just want you to know that I
just signed up for BES. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!! I thank you from
the bottom of my heart for reducing the price. It's so reasonable
it's crazy! Thank-you! Your kind price reduction tipped the
scales for me so thank-you. I listened to the teleseminar
last night- it sounds like you've put SO much thought and
care in to BES; I'm really looking forward to being a part
of the BES community. I've loved being involved with the 7
day cleanse community!
You two are the best!!!
Love and hugs,
Dear Tera and Amy,
I want to tell you that I am looking good. This has encouraged me to go on until I reach my goal weight and to have raw foods as a lifestyle. At this point I am craving a plate of steam vegetables with a baked potatoe with a little soy sauce, and a small piece of broil fish.
This program has proven to me that being over 40 yrs. and menopausal is not a death sentence, and you are not domed to carry around excess weight. I have a 32 year old son, and recently someone quessed my age at 32-36yrs. I think that I look about 42. Instead of getting older, I feel like I'm "younging" Thank you so much. I love you so much. XOX

I can't tell you how grateful I am for this program. I am feeling better than ever...more in control, more confident, trim, healthy, more in tune with Spirit, vibrant, etc... At times I get a little doubtful (can I do this for life? is this really worth it... etc) but I know it's wonderful for my mind, body, and spirit and I don't have the digestive issues and obsession with food when I am eating raw.
I really appreciate your gentle approach and reminding us that this is for life and that it's okay to have what our bodies feel they need at the time. I am really tuning into myself on a deeper level and just loving it!!!
I have also like the simplicity of the food. When I started going RAW last January, I went right into gourmet food preparing. I felt I needed to back up and get into the basics first. I have had raw dinner parties and had people over to teach them some raw food prep, but felt so many were wanting help from me and I was still wanting to get some support and mentoring for myself first.
I could go on and on...the RAW journey continues to lead me down wonderful paths. BES has been my Golden Road!!! Lots of sun and flowers along the way!!!
You are a gift!!!
The Green Smoothie Queen Challenge
I just wanted to say that I feel fabulous after following the Green Smoothie Challenge. THANK YOU!!! I have invented my own recipes along the way,and followed some of yours too so that I could try combinations that I wouldn't usually be drawn to.
Today's Green elixer was devine. I just threw it together with what I had in the kitchen, plus added a little lemon with the skin for extra ZING !! The remaining ingredients were 1 cup water, 2 bananas, 1/2 mango, 2 kiwifruit, bundles and bundles of parsley (plus a pinch of kelp powder and a dash of celtic sea salt). Sublime :-) mmmmm
Thanks again for a great experience !!! Look forward to more Green experiences with the Divas!
The Raw Divas Green Smoothie Jug
"I have to rush off to work, but I’m so psyched I have to take a second to tell you . . .
I LOVE your smoothie container!!!!!!!
My husband and I are doing the 3-day green smoothie challenge. I made his lunch smoothie and put it in the fridge in a pitcher (he works from home).the jugs I then made mine, and thought no way is that whole blender full of thick, green smoothie going to fit in that container. I started to feel irritated, wondering what I could put the remaining smoothie in, and feeling annoyed that I was going to have to take two containers or leave part at home. And then I began filling the container, and my wonderment grew as more and more smoothie fit—until every last drop was in there! Brilliant!!! Now I have a lovely, compact, practical way to transport my smoothie to and from work. Much better than my old system of bringing a big, ugly pitcher that was in danger of spilling in the car if I didn’t wedge it in properly.
Whoever designed that thing—good job! I’d like to buy a few more . . ."
"I LOVE [the green smoothie jug]. It's sooo easy to clean, it doesn't leak, and it's so pretty!
I take a back pack to work with 3 bottles. 1 is blended fruit for breakfast, lunch blended fruit and greens, and the last is a water bottle. I came across a good plastic bottle with a sipper included so it works great just could hold more. I use a fat straw with my Diva jug and when I'm done I just fold the straw over and close the top.
I got it going on girlfriend!!
The Raw Divas Sisterhood
I LOVED THE TELESEMINAR WITH KAREN. WOW, THAT IS GREAT STUFF. THESE TELESEMINARS ARE THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow...thanks so much for those positive thoughts...Your email
was lovely and uplifting as usual.. Keep up the great work
towards better health, joy, balance & happiness.
Poi Spinning with Tonya Kay
"The poi are such fun. I picked them up at the post office this morning... The dogs and I are very, very glad they are soft. I don't think I'm quite ready for fire yet, and the dogs agree.. Thanks for introducing me to them...and thank Tonya, too, for providing a neat form of exercise that even an OLD woman can dig."
"My parrot is fascinated, she keeps going "oooh-oooh" but is also scared. The poi are cool and fun, and you know--you can really feel them in the inner muscles of your upper body, not the muscles you would use with weights at all. very cool! "
I LOVE the poi. Absolutely love them. And the DVD is amazing. I'd
bought a different poi DVD, geared towards bellydance...which was
okay, but Tonya's vid is so much better, both in production values and mood.
It makes me want to get out there and move!
Love it, love it, love it. Thanks again.
