Today is my first day raw. I woke up, strangely, at 6.30am and couldn’t get back to sleep. So I went and made a nice fruit salad with pineapple, apple, pear, orange, strawberries for both me and my girlfriend. Yum!
I’ve just finished making the “Groovy Guacamole” recipe listed here on Gone Raw, it turned out great – quite spicy! I’m going to have that in a couple of hours for lunch in some lettuce/spinach wraps hopefully.
I’ve bought Storm and Jinjee’s “The Garden Diet” ebook last night, which I think should help, there’s some interesting transition and “proper” recipes in there. However, I’m unsure how quick to go raw… my initial idea was to just try it for this week. If it goes well, I’ll extend it for another week.
Can anyone offer me some beginner’s tips or advice, especially regarding speed of change and detoxing. My BMI is in the so-called “healthy” range, most people would describe me as thin/slim. My aim is to actually gain what I gather is real weight, rather than it just storing around my stomach area.
I’m going to work out every day of this week in addition to eating raw. But I’m a little bit stuck as to how much water I should drink and when, before or after food. Oh, at the moment I’m still in the breakfast-lunch-dinner mode, I only really want to eat when I’m hungry but I find that I’m rarely ever hungry!
