Hi everybody :o)
I’m going to start this out with a disclaimer… I have what I consider a valid question, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to type it in a non-controversial way. What I mean to say is, I totally don’t mean any offense to anyone or want to impose my views on anyone. Also, I’m afraid this is going to sound rather whiney. But I’m truly curious.
Now that that’s said (phew), I’m gonna go for it. ;o)
Basically what I’m wondering is, what are the eventual payoffs of going 100% raw – or as close to it as I can possibly manage – that will make all these (insert swearword of choice) detox symptoms worth going through?? Argh. My head is killing me. I’m tired and cranky. My muscles hurt. Etcetera.
I’ve been as close as I can get to all-raw for about two weeks now, and I’m pretty much at the point where I need to decide: should I eat a cooked meal a day to slow down the symptoms? Am I uncomfortable enough to drag the detox process out longer, but to a lesser degree, by eating some cooked foods? If I do start eating cooked foods to slow down the detox process, does that mean I’ll never really know for sure what it feels like to be all raw? And just how great can that be, anyway? I felt better before all this icky detox.
Has anyone else dealt with these kinds of questions? C’mon, I know you have… ;o)
Really, though. I’m interested in hearing from those of you who’ve weathered the storm and come out the other side… what does that feel like? And anyone else like me who is questioning the payoff… how do you decide whether to go all raw? Some raw? Rah-rah! OK, sorry, I am seriously off my nut now. I think one of my detox symptoms might be rambling brain syndrome, lol!
(The coolest thing about detox is, you can blame EVERYTHING on it… ;o)
