I'm a new goneraw member. I've been trying to go high raw for a while now, however I struggle with binge eating on SAD foods. I've struggling with binge eating and eating disorders for about 15 years (30 years old now) and am ready to really end this craziness. I feel so much better when I'm eating real foods like veggies and fruit, but by day 3-4 I end up having a massive binge on SAD foods and then feeling horrible!! I was wondering if maybe I wasn't eating enough and then ended up binging due to being over hunger. Below is what i typically eat when I'm trying to eat high raw and healther. I don't think i'm ready for 100% raw at this point. I do eat some beans and steamed veggies like broccoli. Every once in a while i'll have oatgroats or oatmeal.
7:30-8am a bowl of mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, maybe some blackberries or raspberries). Sometimes unsweetened soy yogurt added
12:00pm- salad (spinach, with either boston lettuce, spring mix, or romain lettuce, with mushrooms, peppers, cucumbers, and shredded carrots with 1/2 cup of beans
3pm- an organic zucchini and celery
6pm- salad (same as above)
9pm- an apple
sometimes i get really hungry at night and will have a banana or orange too.
Also, about how long does it take to detox in a sense? or at least stop craving sugar and the horrible SAD foods?
I really want to end this binge eating on SAD foods. I feel like a mack truck has hit me the next day! Do you think i should be eating more throughout the day? i'm just not sure?
Thank you anyone who can provide guidance! this website is wonderful! everyone here really seems to care and want to help each other be healthier, it's so beautiful!
Hello all, my name is Ryan and I'm located in Arkansas. About a year and a half ago I decided to step up my diet(not as bad as the SAD, but far from great) and activity level(which was about average). I've been disappointed with my results for a while(or lack there of), and after about a month of Insanity(a fitness program) I decided that while there were a few things holding me back(like stress and lack of sleep) the only one I can really control is nutrition. So I decided I'd try 100% raw for 30 days(I'd like to try it for 60 days, but I don't think I can afford it for that long).
Anyways I also thought if I'm going to lurk here or offer my input, I may as well introduce myself; so hello.
Hello my name is Steve and I live in Washington state. I've been contemplating going raw for sometime and have gotten myself to the point where the only cooked thing I really eat is fish now. But I'm ready to pull the plug on that also. So wish me luck cause here I go!
Hello, I just decided to become healthier andddd go raw.
I really don't know anything about using vegetables sooo if someone wants to help me, feel free. If not. Then hopefully I'll figure it out myself.
I am happy to have access to such wonderfully-appearing raw recipes. I've been juicing for quite some time and lately I've been making a lot of smoothies which always have some sort of greenery blended in. I do use the pulp when I juice to make muffins, cakes, or add to soups/stews so I'm not a totally cold raw eater.
I live where the Mississippi River runs west to east in southeast Minnesota.
Best of health to you all,
Leslie (the Green nurse)
