View Full Version : New to Raw food
12-29-2006, 01:13 PM
I am brand new - started four days ago. Eating about 90% raw the past four days. I do feel something happening - a bit spacey feeling, but I'm not going to the bathroom as much as I thought. I am probably about 10-15 pounds overweight so I was not expecting drastic weight changes the first week but is it normal to feel this way? I am reading a few books (one by Natalia Rose and one by Craig Sommers).
I'd love to hear from some of you. I just cant get over that i can eat all of this fruit and make wonderful desserts for after dinner! I feel like I should be gaining weight! I love avocado chocolate pudding.

Welcome to the club!!
Yes isn't it amazing to be able to eat such seemingly-sinful desserts and have no reason to feel guilty. We had chocolate mousse pie for lunch the other day (not for afters, that was the main course) and didn't feel at all guilty! It was all good stuff. That was avocado chocolate pudding on a crust of ground coconut and dates.
Every day since Christmas we've had chocolate mousse pie, icecream (frozen banana blended with pecans, plain or with berries) and fruit crumble. On a cooked diet that would be 3 desserts a day which would be so unhealthy, but on raw, it's good for you.
What else have you been eating? Well done on taking the leap :)

Banana and avocado a simple dessert to blend together and try too. Welcome to the living food lifestyle. One of best things you can do for yourself. Delighted that you're eating so good. Eat, feel good, and enjoy! :)

What I don't get is - can you have left overs from raw food. You know how do you store left overs? Fridge, pantry, etc...how long is the food good for. Silly huh? ;)

Everything should be kept in the fridge. A lot of things can be frozen.

You can also dehydrate leftovers and then they'll last months.
