I am getting a bit bummed out, because I have yet to see any significant results of going raw [okay, other than feeling good.] Regardless of how much I eat or don’t eat, or how much fats I eat or don’t eat, or protein, or green smoothies etc, I do not see a shift in my weight. I do have some weight to lose. I am approximately 15 pounds overweight. I usually incorporate daily exercise of a 30-35 minute run, and some yoga.. and i’m going to begin incorporating weights about three times a week starting later this week or next week.
My frustration is mainly coming from my inability to see any changes in the typical female “problem areas”. They dont’ HAVE to be a problem, but they’re a problem for me. The lower abdomen, the thighs, the upper arms, the love handles.. These areas are just NOT budging. I’m not sure what to do!
I really have cut down on fats, but it’s only been a small amount of time with that. I think I’ll continue to do that though, because I’ve been feeling pretty good. I’ve cut back significantly on things like spices, seasonings, dehydrated foods, and fats of all sorts. I’m sure I will incorporate SOME fats from time to time, but not nearly as much as before. I have done cleanses in the past, and I have been disappointed with the lack of results.
Does anyone have any advice? I’ve been reading all the different forum posts and I know weight loss is a big topic for any diet type.. but I just feel like there must be something my body is trying to do that I’m not picking up on. I did a few day juice feast a little while ago but I’m so stressed with school right now that I’ve been pulling all nighters the last few nights to study and I just wasn’t in the right ‘space’ to do a juice feast right now. I’m saving it for the summer. [it’s winter here. brr.]
One last side question: is there any physical activity that is particularly good for the female body?
I look forward to hearing from anyone…........ :] and thanks in advance!
