I've known about raw food for a while, but decided about two months ago to stop just dipping my toe into the raw pool and dive right in.
First month, no problems except a little bit of healing symptoms. Second month has been a bit more troubling... I live in Chicago and it is getting colder and colder and my desires to eat high-fat foods is only increasing, which isn't exactly doing me much good on the scale. Mind you, weight-loss isn't by any means my only reason for going raw... Clear skin, bright eyes, more energy... we all know the drill, but I was wondering if there are any veteran, cold-weather raw foodists out there who can give me some advice on how to manage the body's instinct to go into high-fat, hibernation foods while trying to lose weight??
Also, I can partially blame my apartment's turn-of-the-century (think 1900's, not 2000's) heating system, but I am freeeezing in Chicago! Does anyone know any particularly warming foods or have any raw tricks to combat cold weather?
Thanks and Happy Holidays!!
