I’m sorry—I feel like I am asking a lot of, possibly, asinine questions. I just don’t even know any vegetarians- let alone raw vegans!
Background: I have been trying to prepare for this for a while. For about two months I ate a whole food vegan diet (i.e: brown rice, fruits, veggies). Then about two weeks ago I started eating about 90% raw (minus a couple of transition foods: lara bars, dressings, and ezekiel bread, etc.)—with intentions of going 100% by the new year.
Is it possible I am already detoxing? At only 90%, and after only two weeks?
My skin is almost unbearable. It has broken out so badly; it is embarrassing. I had one horribly emotional day last week- but that’s about it. Pretty tired at times- but that’s not really out of the ordinary. The major cause for concern is my skin. It is terrible… I have a huge trip planned for my birthday in 2 weeks, and I know it’s lame, but I don’t want to look like this…
I love this way of eating, and I intend to make it a lifestyle. Any tips or suggestions on dealing with my skin in the meantime? More fats? Less fats? Anything specifically that induces breakouts?
Any advice on this would be appreciated!
Thanks so much!!!
