Ive been raw for about a month. It was going well overall. Lots of green smoothies, sprouted buckwheat, flax, and fruit. Getting plenty of fats from avocados and olive oil, but gradually I started eating more desserts, probably to get enough calories. I was perpetually full and sick feeling. Constantly thinking about food and recipes. Then my housemate brought home a huge chocolate birthday cake. After a day of resisting, I ate some. I then felt so gross I made myself throw up, which I haven’t done in over a year. Because I have been so pure by eating raw, the cake was such a shock on my system that I couldn’t live with it inside me. Then the same thing happened the next day. I can’t keep doing this. It seems like it may be better for me to be a little less pure because I’m bound to make mistakes and I can’t just throw up every time I do. I’ve decided just to go regular vegan. (I was mostly vegetarian before starting raw). I’m also really late getting my period, and pale and sickly looking, although other than that I feel good. I think raw is best in a perfect world, but I don’t think its possible for me, at least without a professional chef. That’s all…I don’t know why I’m posting this. maybe somebody has been through this and overcome it???
