I don’t want to have to worry about making sure I am eating enough calories etc but I feel like I eat way too much avocado. Not only that I am wanting to make sure that I am not only feeling good while eating raw but I’m being healthy and doing what is right for my body. For example today I ate:
3 bananas ½ of a small watermelon 1 large and 1 small avocado, with 3 smaller tomatoes, onions, garlic, olive oil and some sea salt.
I have some sort of salt everyday and I feel like I don’t eat as much as others that I read on here which worries me, but on the other hand I am not hungry and if I am I eat.
I have huge cravings for avocados and I don’t know what I should be eating in place of them since that is a lot of fat and I eat them most everyday. I like to eat simple and not have to think too much other than grabbing what is in the fridge. If I have to start preparing meals I will go away from raw which is something I don’t want to do. I know that I don’t eat enough dark leafy greens so on Sunday I added in fish, I had salmon and now I feel like I need advice on what to do to continue raw in the right way. Is it bad to eat so little if you aren’t hungry? I used to eat a lot of strawberries and blueberries but I am getting tired of both of them. Maybe I need to start drinking smoothies everyday which will fill me up and the fruits I’m tired of will taste different.
So here are some questions:
1.Is it bad to eat so many avocados?
2.I know that some salt isn’t bad but is eating salt everyday overdone?
3.Am I eating enough food for my body keeping in mind that I am eating when hungry?
I am 22 years old, about 5’6” I weigh around (I haven’t weighed in a few weeks) 157 lbs which when I started eating this way at the beginning of June I weighed 181 lbs. To give you an example of the size of my body which I don’t know if it makes a difference to you when looking at this I am between a size 8 and 10. I work out with water aerobics at least 1 day a week, sometimes 3. I have started Bikram Yoga but have only been 3 times, I’m trying to get on a schedule. I do not have a daily exercise routine though which is what I’m really getting at but I am active at some point every week.
Oh and I thought I would add that when I first started eating raw I would eat a lot more than I do now but slowly I got less and less hungry. Or maybe I was eating more when I wasn’t hungry before out of habit?
