complete loss of appetite

stylistchickstylistchick Raw Newbie

has this happened to anyone? i just really don’t want to eat anything. i drink alot of coconut water and juices, the occasional smoothie. the last big meal i had was thanksgiving, but i barely ate anything the week before that.
for now i’m just going with it, i plan on doing a juice fast, maybe after that it will return. it just seems weird because in the first 2 months of my raw journey i was hungry all the time.


  • Hey again…The only thing that I can tell you is that I’ve read a number of books/forums etc. filled with raw foodists (hardcore and newbies) and they all basically stated the same thing…”Listen to your body”...”It will tell you what you need”...It may be asking for a “break” or “fast” – Sometimes my body craves the strangest things…for two days last week I ate nothing but spinach and mushrooms…that was it. I wanted it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…I “listened” and went through another “phase” of detox and felt great right after.

    thanks veganpunk, yes this has been my philosophy from the beginning, i definately eat what i crave.
    i went to the book store and looked through about 4 raw recipe books, but still didn’t buy any of them. i think i’m going to fill a notebook with recipes from this site that interest me.
    the good news is that i know i am sticking to raw food, i’ve made it this far and the results have been amazing on every level.
    i think once i go through the juice fast my appetite will return.
