Hey all, just wanted to run some thoughts/questions by anyone who has been raw a little while. I was on the Master Cleanse and then transitioned to an all raw diet right away. It’s been about a week and so far, so good! Here’s what I’m noticing:
I’m not eating (or needing to eat, I should say) much at all it seems. My typical day is juicing in the morning (usually chard and and an orange), a big smoothie for “breakfast”, then a huge salad for lunch, followed by dinner (which can be anything from flax crackers w/ pate, raw nori rolls or some kinda veggie medley dish). That’s it, nothing more, no snacking, no dessert. Have most of you noticed a decrease in the need for eating? I’m trying REALLY hard to not be eating emotionally or out of boredom, so I’m chugging water religiously so that I’m not mindlessly grazing. Is there such thing as eating “too little”?
Okay so this next one is about bodily functions, just giving fair warning. So I’ve noticed the most amazing thing: I don’t fart AT ALL when I’m all raw. Wow, it’s kinda really weird and cool at the same time. Anyone else? And poop, wow, my pooping mechanism (hehe) is pretty darn efficient because I’m not eating nearly as much as I would have on my normal vegan diet and yet I’m eliminating still 2-3 times a day. Only thing that is alarming is that it’s a different “texture” and it feels weird and uncomfortable coming out..is this just me getting used to poo’ing an all raw diet?
Okay, so I think that’s it for now. I know I have more to ask but I can’t think of it now.
