Im a newbie in rawfood diet, less than two months.
Im reading a lot about rawfood and I found there are so many ways of eating raw and know Im little confused.
Ive been 14 years vegetearian so my transition is going quite well -no cravings, just a little of headache and some lillte spots in my skin...-
Im "raw til dinner" cos at night I eat 1 slice of whole bread with my salad. I dont drink coffe, diet coke, alcohol -and I dont miss it ! :)
But in these days Im reading a lot about 80/10/10 diet based on fruits little greens and little fat and now Im confused:
-I use to put cold pressed olive oil -im spanish and living in Spain for me olive oil is basic but according to 811 is bad. Is that true?
-I use himalaya salt, is that bad? I love salty taste but if is not fine... :(
-what about onions and garlic? are they good? the same with cauliflower, alfalfa spouts, olives, dates, earth almond -tiger nut-...are they ok?
And my problem is that I like greens more than fruit (for example if I eat more than 2 medium bananas my stomach feels so full and sometimes hurts) so my diet now is like this:
-water when i wake up. Then a couple of fruits ( 2 slices of melon, or one apple and a peach, two plums...)
-lunch: about 100gr of watercress, spinach, lettuce +1/2 carrot+1/2 onion+celery+1 tomatoe+1/2red pepper+5 raw black olives+1/2 avocado or raw sweetcorn+parsley o coriander+ alfalfa sprouts (not always) olive oil, himalaya salt.
-snack about 3 h later: some grapes, or one nectarine, some coconut or dates, an apricot+one plum
-dinner: the same salad and sometimes 1 slice or whole bread.
-3 hours later I use to eat a couple of macadamia nuts, or one walnut or some pistachios
Is this diet ok?
Do I have to eat more fruit? I found over forums and blogs people who eat 10 bananas, one watermelon, 5 mangoes or 500gr of dates and that sounds impossible to me! too much sweet ( i dont really like sweet flavour in general even if its from fruits....In the past, sometime I felt dizzy because of low levels of sugar and i had to eat dates or something sweet just because was an "emergency" but not ...i was a indian vegan spicy recipes lover and, well maybe sounds weird but I ate red hot chilly peppers as snack!! so imagine)
To sum up, am I eating too much greens? am i lack of fruits? Do yo think is balanced? Do i need other foods? avoid others?
Thanks a lot!!!
