Hello everyone, um i am new here on this site, well actually i'm not because i was on here moths ago i just slipped for a while. I used to be a little bit Raw once before, but i'm trying it again. :) Today is my 2nd day of transitioning to fruitarian diet as i wanted to lean more of on that side than just regular raw, and i think i have pretty good so far. :D At first when i had gotten into this before it was so that i could lose the extra pounds, but now i think i want to do it just for my health overall period. If there's any advice you would like to give me please feel free to post it. Thanks.
I'm totally new to this. Until 3 weeks ago I could't even imagine trying a raw diet at all. It just seemed to extreme and I didn't see the point. But then so many people are raving about how much better they feel etc. and since I have been feeling kind of unhappy with myself and especially my food I thought I'd give it a try.
Ever since I have been increasing the amount of "raw" food in my diet and have done four days of 100% raw... then I caved and ate everything I had been craving (especially protein!), LOL. Anyway.
Now I am having one meal of non-raw food... that doesn't feel so good anymore, or at least I am more aware of how unwell I feel after a protein-rich cooked meal, especially in the morning I feel totally dehydrated. So now I am trying to find a place that feels comfortable, foodwise.
I am still not so sure this sort of diet will give me all the nutrients I need (?!). Especially, because I don't want to have to take tons of supplements! Oh well, we'll see, eh?
The good thing about this experience so far is definitely that I have gotten rid of my craving for sweets, and even for carbs altogether (quite a surprise!). And the realisation that raw food is actually quite yummy!
