Im sure it has been asked before but im new to this forums so I will give it a try :-)
How to mantain or gain weight on 100% raw diet ?
I have always been underweighted but if I give up bread and rice im afraid that I might end up in the anorexic looking zone, witch I really dont want. I know that they say that the weight will ajust itself, but what to do until then ? My surrondings allready thinks that im strange being vegan and all, but if I start to eat only raw and looses weight they might seriously think that I have a eating disorder ?? :-(
Sigh, it is just as hard being underweighted as it is being overweighted, being judged no mater what. I want to eat raw food for several health reasons plus it just feels so right. My body is absolutely craving fresh raw fruit and greens. when I first heard about rawfood several years ago it feelt just so right, and I have been making the transition slowly for the last two years so im about 75% raw now. The reason im still a bit hesitating is that I have seen pictures of rawfooders who looks like skin and bones. But I have to say that pictures of people like the Boutenko family keeps me going :) specialy the kids they just looks so healthy and radiant :)
Do any of you have experience with maintaning or gaining weight on raw foods ? I will be really intrested to hear more :-)))
