I have been raw for nearly a year now and although I feel great, I think I have lost too much weight because I haven't had a period in 7 months. I am 167cm tall and now weigh 49kg. I don't think I look too skinny but some of my friends and family do. My diet consists of plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables including avocados (1 every day) and bananas (1 every 2nd day) and a small handful of nuts and seeds every day. I also include hemp seeds and olive oil in all my salads. I feel that I get enough EFA's through these foods in my diet and I also take macca every day as well.
Basically, I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced loss of periods after going raw and whether it was due to weight loss or the raw food diet??? I don't want to go back to a diet of cooked foods which is what I have been told by 'doctors' that I should do to put some weight back on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
