hey you rawfoodies :) im raw a week now... and i lost some weight but i was allready reall skinny before. i mean i knew i was gonna lose some but i dont wanna lose more. is it going to balance itself after a while, should i eat cooked again if i lose even more? i mean i was really really skinny even before going raw you know
I think the thing that really surprised me at first was how much you need to eat volume wise. The calorie density is a consideration I think some newbies don't make. You have to eat a much larger volume than on the SAD diet. Once I figured that out and the right balance of seeds and nuts for me, weight maintenance was actually much easier for me than when I was eating a cooked, non vegan diet. The vegan diet agrees with me so much better, I absorb and maintain a healthier weight.
