I would love to be 100% raw. I tried it with no transition last summer and for the whole week I felt great. I had so much energy and just felt...great!
But I guess it was too much for me to jump into from my carniverous SAD cause I just crashed. I haven't gotten on it again.
I'd really like to, but I have some concerns. Since that week I have been more aware of my body. Meat, dairy and processed foods make me feel ill. I can no longer stand to eat regular store bought honey, only the raw wildflower honey. I can't stand artificial sweeteners anymore. That's all good. I crave the stuff that makes me sick like crazy though, so I'm not totally off it. I do eat meat about 2x a week, and then it isn't like a big chunk of meat, it's only a little bit in a dish. I rarely have dairy and eggs. I don't eat as many processed foods. I've been working in more raw.
The thing that worries me is that I don't like nuts too much and I don't like alot of veggies. I could live off of bananas and grapes (if I could find organic ones
). I'm anemic, though I'm taking a suplement right now for it. Although its not helping 100% I feel alot better than when I'm not taking it. I've started juicing green stuff (like kale or bok choy or spinach) and making smoothies with it with bananas and chocolate soy milk (though I swear I'm trying to cut that out
). I've also been trying to find out why I can taste even minute amounts of salt in food. I figure it must be a deficiency, someone on here suggested a ph imbalance (which my limited research turned up could be the result of too much animal in diet...I have hardly any)
So anyway, that's where I am. I'm trying to figure out how I can work more raw in my diet, and most days I'm doing better than the day before, but I'm nowhere near where I would like to be
Wow, I wrote alot...I think it's bedtime
