I am getting really concerned. I went raw about a week ago from SAD.
At first I was losing weight every day, almost a pound a day. Then, I started to drink white wine in the evening with my husband. We were just hanging out on the deck and enjoying the weather. I have stayed 100% raw on my food intake and only drink water or had some wine 2 evenings. (OK it was a lot of wine).
I noticed in 1 day I was up a full pound. Then I was up the next day by 0.2 then this morning up to 0.4. I was 1.4 lbs smaller and losing steady as of 3 days ago!
How could I be gaining weight? Especially this morning since I didn't have any wine at all last night!
I am not eating heaps of nuts and avocados. I limit myself like this
avocados= 1 to 1 1/2 per day
bananas= 1 to 1 1/2 per day
nuts/nutbutter = 1 to 2 handfulls per day
No I am not snacking on raisins. I mostly eat a salad for dinner in the evenings. I did make the walnut taco meat tacos one night.
Leave it to me to gain weight on a raw diet! GrrrRR. I do feel good. I am loving the way my skin is starting to look. My lips feel fuller (more hydrated?) Also, I know I am giving my body healthy things. But, I am kind of getting frusterated. I thought I would lose weight. I am a heavy girl.. I don't want to say my weight but it's considered obese. =(
Am I doing something wrong?
