Hello dear readers of this topic,
Nearly two months ago (01-01-10) I started a 100% raw vegan diet (and tried with less success the 80/10/10 thing). After the first days I felt an increase in energy which was great seeing that was my main purpose with the diet. However, these last two weeks I've not been very energetic (sometimes quite ok, sometimes like a bad day before I started). Obviously it could just be a little flu or just me being overworked and needing a holiday (or still detox..?). However, seeing this is about the time I expected possible defficiencies to arise, that is a significant option in my mind.
Would anyone know what nutrient I could be missing, if any? My usual meal contains oranges, mandarins, kiwi's, tomato's, apples, pears, a lot of bananas and usually grapes. Then I also blend a different vegetable (preferably greens) each day together with bananas and either strawberries, blueberries or raspberries. Occasionally I eat grapefruits, pineapples, mellons or mango's. I eat some nuts almost dayly (usually cashews), seeds only rarely and I supplement only B-vitamins (for B12).
Maybe more experienced raw foodists on this forum instantly see something that I'm missing? That would be really helpful indeed!
