  • Hi everybody! Thanks for the responses. I'll try to address them each in the morning (trouble sleeping tonight! ) I'm sorry if I seemed grouchy last night - I was! I get really negative when I'm grouchy.
  • Before this I was vegetarian (sometimes vegan) for 20 years. I've been raw on and off for 5 years - and this is what always gets me - even when I was just vegetarian, I had a hard time getting enough calories.
  • I have gained 3 pounds in a month.
  • That may be the quick & dirty answer, but won't really help. That's basically what I been eating, and by 6 or 8 pm, after only managaing to consume only about 600 by that time, I give up and eat something fatty like an avocado or nut cheese. I'm…
  • Thanks for the quick response! I was actually coming back to update: According to this site [url]http://www.freedomfly.net/Articles/Nutrition/nutrition14.htm[/url] I should be eating (basal) 1618.73 and with my current activity level - 2509.02 How a…

  • For the kelp noodles, soak them in water (doesn't need to be warm) with the juice of one lemon fore about 15 minutes, gives it a pasta-y constisency, instead of crunchy.

  • Thanks for the tip. I already loved nuts online, so I just went and ordered some marcona almons. I can't wait to try them!
  • When I'm craving something cooked, I eat a bunch of fruit. That usually fills me up so the cravings go away. If they are still there, I go do something that keeps me from eating, like a shower or yardwork. I work at a health food store, so organic j…
  • Update: Holland America was great. They made me very nice/fancy salads and soups that were totally yummy and raw. I had plenty to eat the whole trip and would recommend them to anyone who is thinking of going on a cruise. From what I hear, Carnival …
  • Wow. Thanks for the great tips. It’s Holland America and we are going to the Caribbean. They are being great about it! I’ll have to check out that book from Shazzie.
