This is a raw potluck so please bring your favorite raw dish!

We will enjoy delicious raw foods while we watch the movie May I Be Frank, which follows the gripping journey of Frank Ferrante’s 42-day raw diet. After the movie we will have a Q&A and I will share my personal story of how I lost 160 pounds,(80 pounds on a raw diet), by eating healthy.

Before the movie, you can sign-up for the three month ‘Lose Weight and Heal our Bodies’ class which begins on January 25! Follow the steps that Simone Simpson took to lose 160 pounds. Each month we will focus on one healthy lifestyle change. Together, we can change our bodies and change the world!

Get ready for a fun filled afternoon where we will share laughs and learn about raw foods.

There will be a raw food journaling guide available for purchase.

About Simone

My name is Simone Simpson and this is my journey, my evolution. I spent many years as a ‘fit’ person. I put the word fit in quotes because I was not good to my body. I was fat free, sugar free, and many other things free, without ever listening to what my body wanted. Then, I became an emotional eater and gained almost 200 pounds. At 320 pounds, I was in happy misery - happy because I always smiled. I was overly polite; I made sure that everyone else was comfortable. I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers and I never spoke up for myself. So, I ate…

I always knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that I would be thin, trim, fit, healthy one day! Unequivocally, absolutely, yes; I would be thin. I knew that I would lose all of this weight that I carried. I didn’t really know when. I think I always thought it would be with the next diet that I would begin.

On November 1st, 2012, I went raw. I changed to a 100% raw diet. And it was effortless! I ate what I wanted, when I wanted it. And no counting of calories, fat, sugar, etc.!

I was only planning to do this for 42 days…and ten months later I had lost 80 pounds and went from a size 20 to a size 8! I am now teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and giving workshops where I am sharing my journey with the world. Most importantly, I feel amazing! Thank you for reading about my journey!

I look forward to meeting you, sharing delicious raw vegan food, and showing you how easy and fun it is to adopt a raw food lifestyle!
