  • I experienced the same thing once malchusmom! I had a juice from whole foods of carrot and orange and asked them to toss in wheatgrass juice. 10 minutes after drinking it my stomach knotted up and I threw up everything. It really hurt my stomach so …
  • cold pressed, unrefined, virgin are raw. I use coconut oil in most recipes. Also as lotion after a shower. I find for me olive oil is way too fatty to consume in large amounts. Avocados are nice and fatty too! I mash up 2-3 for a guacamole mix and u…

  • Thanks everyone! Susan121-Congrats on finishing your first marathon! I'm really excited for you, and also excited that I've finally taken the plunge to run one (well it'll be a 1/2). Are you mainly raw? (around 90% or above) Thanks for the flax sugg…
  • Yes! please do! I am interested in knowing how to rebuild cartlige. I know I over extended not the IT band on the outside of my knee, but they told me there was another tendon there as well and that's the one that was overextended, but that's on my …
  • what would you recommend for joint pain? especially in the knees? I've always had bad knees wear a brace around the knee cap on my right leg when I run. What do you recommend? I get spasms randomly in the kneecap that's a very prominent painful pric…

  • I do have nori in my cupboard that I always mean to crush over salads but forget. I was thinking I need to eat more sea vegetables. Do you do any types of algae?
  • thanks powerlifer! I think I am going to look into the protein powders. I was reading the other thread on whey protein and what to substitute instead, and a lot of it is nuts, but my body starts to feel the fattiness from them if I eat too many in o…
  • I've always trained like an athlete, and for as much hiking and weight/gym time I put in, I've never felt this much exhaustion in my legs, last night I was even starting to wonder if it's my bones??? That's my one thing though, I do not count calori…
  • Thank you for the responses! I greatly appreciate it! :)

  • I was going to suggest a pie also, because you really need your fruit to be sustained on raw. Mix it with nuts, there's your crunch!
  • why don't you try eating more 'pieces of fruit' when you first wake up? or start off with a juice, then when you get to work chow down on a lot of fruit to hold you over until lunch, then do a big salad filled with greens, veggies, fruit, and seeds.…
  • as far as alternative greens for juicing, I juice green cabbage, leaves from beets, and chards. Cabbage has a bit of a strong flavor when juiced, so I prefer to juice with oranges and carrots, apple and beet as well.
  • Hi grapepixy! I've been raw for almost 4 years now ( my first 1 yr 1/2 was 100%, now I'm getting back to that because for me I feel best eating this way), and what I've learned that helps save me from wanting to eat unhealthy SAD foods that I know w…
  • If you really don't want to eat SAD anymore, even though you messed up that day, you still have tomorrow to start fresh. Why not try fasting the rest of the day to get rid of cravings, and start tomorrow off with fresh fruit or a juice to get your t…
    in help, I cheated! Comment by Eloisa
  • Well I have been eating a mix of cooked foods along with raw, it was usually about one meal a day, the last cooked food I ate was bread carbs and ice cream, bad I know. I was at a family event and I don't even like ice cream anymore, but I ate it th…
  • Thanks so much everyone for the comments and helpful advice!! MUCH APPRECIATED! So, I guess with so much rinsing this will have to be a weekend project for me as I'm at work and school pretty much all week. I will give it another try with the advice…
  • Susan - I've just made my way back to raw after a month 1/2 of binge-yo-yo-raw dieting. I was really wanting to get back to raw, but had been struggling. I found that writing everything down in a notebook started to help me. it motivated to eat bett…
  • What I've chowed down on so far: -1 and 1/4 liter of fresh juice: carrot, orange, golden delicious apple, celery -slice of key lime pie! (crust: dates, brazil nuts, almonds, raw honey, unsweetened shredded coconut. Filling: avocado, coconut oil, hon…

  • I had severe sensitive skin prior to going raw. Everytime my skin touched water and dried, I had to put lotion on immediately because my skin felt like it was burning. Touching paper was the worst! Now I dry brush before showering, use all natural s…

  • Usually I don't mind the winter season. I'm horrible with cold weather as I'm CONSTANTLY freezing, seriously, the hot shower at night is the only real warmth I get during the day. But this is my first raw winter and it's awful! My body is not cravin…

  • What is oil pulling and how do you do it??
  • I've never had a cavity in my life and I too am pretty good about my oral hygiene (brushing about 5 times daily and flossing every night) with frequent dental checkups. But it seems to me that I've noticed some of my molars have become more sensitiv…
  • Thanks Gratefultobe. Yeah, I start to chew it because it will get mixed up in my spoon of honey, but it likes to get stuck in my teeth, so I usually throw it out. I don't favor it, it really has no flavor and sticky molars are no fun, but I have end…
  • Thanks everyone for your comments and links - much appreciated! I'll have to investigate on both ends to see what would work best for me..

  • Fruits and Veggies/greens combined have never given me bloaty-ness or gas... Most of the time, I can only eat salads if I toss some fruit in it for flavor. I never use dressings. I'll do squirts of lemon juice, or recently my favorite, mix some appl…
  • Actually there is one brand, It starts with an "M" and it comes from Mexico where the agave nectar is heated under 115 degrees, the bottle clearly states that and it is organic and 100% raw. It's at my house, where i'm not, so I cant remember the na…
  • Exercise. I know it sounds like you don't have a lot of time, but instead of watching your favorite show on tv for an hour, hit the gym or go running for that hour. And usually , most gyms have multiple tvs playing the popular shows, so you most lik…
  • Wow. I didn't know anything about this and clicked on this forum out of curiosity to find out what Codex was. After reading the links Rawkid posted, I am disgusted and appalled at our human race for the force they are using to take away human life. …
