I have been RAW for 30 days now. I was doing great in the beginning now some things are changing:
The first is I am craving fats all the time. In particular, avocados. I have been eating 1/2-1 avocado a day. I also have been craving nut-based cheese spreads (but not craving nuts, I am actually repulsed by them which is odd for me). I don’t feel satisfied until I eat something like this. The result of this is I am not losing any more weight (I need to lose 20 more lbs).
The second is this diet is supposed to make you feel fuller longer so you require less food. I find I am hungry and picking ALL DAY.
The third is I am not feeling very energetic. Actually, I sleep 10 hours a nite still (always have) and carry around a slight exhaustion all day. Then around 3-4pm I can’t keep my eyes open. I am drop-dead exhausted. The odd thing is this happens like clock-work every day. If I get a cat-nap (rare) then I am wide awake afterwards and can stay up until past midnight.
The other thing is I have trouble actually getting to sleep each nite. I lay in bed and it takes me a long time to actually fall asleep. Again, that is odd for me.
What is going on? Is this a late-detox? What about the cravings? Should i go with them or force more fruits and veggies?
