After months of being uncomfortable in my own skin and wanting a change, I have completely immersed myself in a raw food lifestyle. The past few days I have been 100% raw, and it feels great. However, I do find myself feeling a little bit heavy today, a little run down. I'm also very emotional today and find myself getting agitated at the body I've come to have after a few sedentary months without school or work. Since I've pretty much been hanging around the house since late January, I also find myself snacking, or grazing, all of the time. I was wondering if there is an easy way to find balance in my new diet , without having it feel restricted or too drawn out, because the thought of that does not sit well with me. I don't think the new ways I've adapted to prepare and consume food are a diet at all, but a lifestyle, so I hate to have a set plan of what I need to eat instead of just going with what my body says. But as of now my body, or more my mind I suppose, is saying snack snack snack.
This is a long post, I know, and it may sound confusing. But I guess I'm just looking for a little guidance or maybe some reassurance that my body will do what it's supposed to and I will eventually feel comfortable and know that my body is at it's peak performance level. Thank you, and any advice for me is encouraged and appreciated greatly!
