Hey, sorry for the lapse. I’m not going to be tracking the days anymore…too much work.
I needed some time to really immerse myself in the real reasons why I’m making this change. I needed to really understand what I was eating. I needed to revisit how so much of my favorite food really isn’t food and what that means to my health down the line. I don’t want to be sick, have diabetes, cancer, etc. Of course, I’m not saying that absolutely can’t happen to someone on a raw food path…but if you take care of your body and feed it “REAL” food, you have a better chance of living without disease.
So, since I was going to be off for 2 days I basically stayed in the house and ate raw for 2 days. On Nov 26 I was 181 pounds. Today 6 days later I’m 173. It clicked for me. Real food, natural food vs. Processed, sugar enriched food with no real nutritional value. It has really clicked for me. And the best thing…I don’t feel like I’m missing anything. I’m am fully aware of how I’m making a positive change and not a change fueled by vanity and wanting to be thin.
In this state I believe I will be able to carry on and be healthy. I’m not desiring the faux foods I used to love. I’m not 100% raw. I’ve had some salmon in these 6 days…with a very simple preparation. I think I’ll eventually be 100%, but my daily goal right now is 80-90% and I’ve been hitting that consistently.
