after all i’ve read on the raw diet, i haven’t really looked into the metabolism issue, and i’d like to confirm just how fast a person’s metabolism can get on the raw diet.
i’ve been 75+ raw the past 2 years, and 100 for almost 3 months. i’ve been eating essentially the same balance of foods since going fully raw…in other words, no really big changes in the combination of greens/fruits/seeds/+, or any drastic caloric changes. i’ve been extremely satisfied on this plan, but suddenly it seems i am absolutely starving almost every day. my digestion is also super fast, almost immediate. i can feel the energy of my burning metabolism. while it feels great, and i have began eating significantly more, i feel i am experimenting in the dark, and it is a big job trying to add in more calories, and to maintain the right balance of foods.
i am curious about this, and would love to hear others thoughts, input and experiences. is this basically similar to the ‘trying to keep/gain weight’ issue? i just hadn’t realized that it would start happening this way… that i’d need to start eating like crazy : ) if so, it could get quite expensive! i do tend to eat pretty constant, and i am also wondering if that in itself is the contributing factor. and so far, my weight is not an issue so i didn’t really see this coming.
your 2 cents please!
