  • No weight loss?

    Try to keep in mind that you're transitioning to more than just raw foods, but a new way of thinking and relating to food. You're attempting to undo years of what your parents taught you about food and how you chose to relate to fod when you became responsible for feeding yourself. Your body is trying to figure out what the hell is going on, and your mind may collaborate on the defense.

    For those of you who want to lose weight but are not seeing any results, keep track of your water intake, and consider keeping a food diary.

    Yes, fruits and veggies have a high water content and eventually you'll get to the point where you won't have to drink a lot of water, but during your transition, you need to help your body stay hydrated and release any water weight.

    A food diary is also helpful to understand why you eat what you eat when you eat. Track the time, mood, and reason for choosing the food you ate.

    After a week, you can look over it to see if you're eating too much of one thing, or not enough of another.

    And remember, if you want to lose weight, you'll either have to restrict 500 calories a day or burn an extra 500 calories a day.

    3500 calories=1 pound

    Good Luck.

    Good point. The body will store sugar as fat if it is not used in a certain amount of time. Regular exercise makes it all the more important here.

    Do you know how many calories you're consuming every day?

    I'm not a calorie cruncher, but there is a relationship between the number of calories consumed daily vs weight maintenance/gain/loss.

    If you've been eating raw for more than 2 weeks and haven't lost any weight -- but also have NOT gained any weight, than you're eating enough to maintain your current size.

    What is your level of physical activity? Do you take walks every day or do something strenuous to get your heart rate and blood pressure up? Increased physical activity can raise your metabolism and help get the unwanted pounds off.

    Something to consider.
