Hi everybody, I am a week into my new Raw lifestyle and am loving it. Before last week I was a totally 'hooked on cooked', alcohol and cigarettes. This passed week I have been living mostly on green juices and salads. However I have been having the odd cooked potato and shop brought coleslaw as well as continuing with the disgusting cigarettes. The good things are that people are saying my skin is glowing (although no evidence of weight loss yet) but I love this process, fully understand and accept the process behind it and am determined to continue with this wonderful, amazing lifestyle.
The problem is my mood swings :-( On Friday at work we had a meeting where I went a bit crazy and fell off the wagon. I drank: 1 cup of coffee, 2 glasses of sparkling wine and I ate various party foods, ie crisps, choclate (I know, I know, I am truly disgusted with myself)! The problem is that I, a normally placid, calm, shy person, snapped at one of my colleagues and today I snapped at the man in the corner shop. I hate myself when I am doing it and feel such guilt and shame afterwards. Why is this happening to me? Is it normal? Am I missing something from my diet.
