My previous posts have sort of chronicled my struggle to stay raw. I’ve managed a week here, a couple days there, etc, since deciding to go raw… adopting this lifestyle has been a travailing task so far. Any way… I would consider today to be my first official day back into raw foods. I’ve been eating all raw, except for some salad dressing on my greens.
And now I have an ENORMOUS headache. I’m not sure if this is a detox symptom… I noticed huge headaches before as well, during my past raw attempts. But, I think this may have to do with the fruit… This diet is very, very sweet! Majority of the things I’ve been eating have included fruit… green smoothies, fruit itself, salad (with a sweet tasting dressing), a larabar…
This was my problem before… there’s not a lot of variety for me. It’s all fruit, or fruit-based; and just way too much sweetness. I get huge headaches and feel extremely dizzy when I eat this way! I need to keep my diet simple… just raw fruits and vegetables- I’m not allowing myself any nuts.
Am I going to be able to find any balance here?
I don’t want to just eat sweet things all the time. I mean, I used to be able to eat things like cheese and sandwiches and all kinds of different foods with varying flavors…
Is there hope for me?
And what options do I have in treating headaches? Waiting it out isn’t some thing that I’m going to be able to tolerate.
Is there any thing I can do?
