I went 100 percent raw about month and I am having trouble controlling food cravings. I have no trouble staying away from nasty cooked foods but sometimes I just pig out on raw foods until I feel bloated. More often that not it’s with nuts and dired fruit.
Could this because these foods are close to cooked? I know nuts and dried fruit take longer to pass thorugh than other foods. I can’t see whats wrong because I eat massive quantities of raw fruit and greens yet I still get cravings.
Has anybody had similar expiriences when they went 100 percent raw?
HI Nagev! I’m new here and only starting on my RAW path but I can empathize with your nut/fruit cravings. Don’t get me started on my walnut binges! I feel so gross the next day, all bloated and ugh and swear I will never do it again, and then poof, I do it again. I’ve wondered if its a nutrient that I’m lacking (protein maybe)? I’d be very curious what the others think.
nuts make me bloated as hell. Now dried fruits like dates, dont really make me feel bloated and they digest very quickly. But I do love my fresh fruit and I really dont eat too many greens at all. May celery, kale, lettuce, and spinach, everyonce and a while. I like banana and celery, its the best! Dont worry man, I use to have a problem with nuts big time, the cravings will goaway soon. Stay strong! :)
Thanks for the support. I did some research and I found that some dried fruit I have been eating has been subjected to higher temperatures. That is probably what does it. Same with cashews. That’s good news though; my body is getting tuned into what it wants.
