Dense raw carbs

liliblilib Raw Newbie


I'm a newbie to a raw vegan diet but only just started four days ago, having previously been an omnivore. I tried keto in a previous attempt to lose weight but felt terrible – not the keto flu, but had weird mental feelings that I called the "horrors". This stopped when I upped my carbs. I've started to get the horrors again on the raw vegan diet and this stopped when I added cooked sweet potatoes. My question is what dense carbs can I eat that aren't cooked? Or should I just carry on with the cooked addition until I've got used to being raw?

    I went heavy on the nuts and avocado in the beginning. It helped a lot. Are you getting enough calories overall?

    Hi Claire,

    Many thanks for your reply. Yes, I was wondering about upping the nuts and avocado because I don't think I've been eating enough calories as I'm hungry all the time. I will give this a go.

    Thanks again,
