I guess I am tying this to my introduction.
My name is Jeremy and I went raw on Monday of last week.
When I was eating cooked food (vegan organic) I was having aout 4000-5000 calories a day.
The reason? Im 6 foot 8 and my walking weight is/was 200lbs. So I am rather skinny. I train in martial arts and i weight lift. So I needed most those calories to get me through the work outs and gain weight at the same time.
Since becoming raw, I have dropped from 198 (weight fluxuates between 198-202 with cooked food) to 193. In a week and a half! Im going to my chiropractor today and Ill weigh myself again, Im afraid of the results.
Is this just fat falling off? Or am I actually loosing healthy muscle weight? I can get through me work outs fine enough, with energy to spare usually. I have been eating anywhere between 2900 calories – 3500 calories a day. Calories are easy during breakfast and lunch. But dinner gets hard to come up with stuff.
I have read Raw Power and I follow a lot of what it says, but shrugs. My body type and metabolism is completely different from other people.
