On and off Raw

Hello Everyone,

I am happy I found this site. I absolutely love it! I have been on and off a raw diet for a few years now. Now I am trying my best to stay with a raw diet consistently. It is very hard to stay consistent because my husband refuses to go 100% raw. When I cook for him I end up eating cooked food. When I am all raw, my body feels so much better. I feel alive any do not have any stomach distress. When I eat cooked foods I end up with stomach aches and feel less energetic. Raw is definitely for me. Do some of you have the same problem? Trying to stay consistent with a raw diet? Is it a challenge for you, especially if your spouse or significant other refuses to go raw with you?

Many blessings,

    Hi Carrie. Welcome!

    I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to reaching for snacks in the grocery aisle or grabbing food while on the go. I definitely feel better physically when I manage to eat raw despite the obstacles. 

    When I'm cooking for someone, I'll usually make them a raw side dish to go with the meal, and I'll make a big and more complete version of that raw dish for myself. That way I'm not as tempted to eat the cooked food and I don't feel like I'm being forced to make two separate meals. 

  • I veer off sometimes too. However, the high fruit, huge salad raw diet is definitely the best for me.
