OK so my diet has evolved going into the fall from mainly fruit, I even did 80/10/10 for a while, to a lot of fat. Now I have a big Salad in the middle of the day consisting of 10 or so tablespoons of dressing (the dressing is almost 1/2 usually raw olive oil, a little over 1/2 other ingredients) as well as 7 or so tablespoons of sunflower seeds on the salad. Some days I snack on up to nearly a cup of sunflower seeds throughout the day. THe rest of my diet is pretty much all fruit – for example, 2 pears and 3 pounds of mango might be what i eat during a certain day besides the salad.
I think this is linked both to changing climate (fall), lack of availability of fruits that I like (peaches, plums, etc) this time of year, and the fact that I was feeling underweight. I didn’t gain any weight on the scale (maybe 2 pounds or so but nothing big) but I did gain a very healthy and vibrant look to my face as it was starting too look tooo skinny, particularly around my temples.
But eating these fasts feels fine to me. I didn’t start to get body odor (sometimes from non-raw olive oil when i am forced to use it). I feel good and actually feel more grounded and focused than when I was nearly fruitarian. I am not overly tired and still thrive on not too much sleep if need be. The only problem is I definitely move my bowels less than I used to, which I don’t like – but that may be from not drinking enough water.
What are people’s ideas here on the amount of fats I am not eating and abut fats in general? I know the 80/10/10 people will beat me over the head but I’m expecting that.
I haven’t posted much on here lately as I have been very happy and stable in my raw food life and just going day to day happily…not to say that posting on here was a form of unhappiness, but I am just sooooo busy now and being raw for over 6 months at this point, it’s such a normal way of life that I rarely even talk about it anymore, online or in person. I guess that is a good thing? lol
