View Full Version : No appetite??!!

Hi all, I have been raw for the past few months, and just finished my second mc fast (30 days) two weeks ago. It went really well, and I never felt better. However, after alternating between watered down oj and lemon water, I am still having difficulty transitioning back into raw - I have absolutely no appetite. I did not have this problem after my first fast. Still have tons of energy and daily bms, so what gives:confused: Any input would be appreciated ~ Cathy

If you are full of energy, and don't feel like eating anything, then I fail to see what the problem is. The fact of the matter is, you are full of energy.

Just listen to your body. It's not hungry...do not go against its well for you. :p

For every 2 days it's suggested to spend one day transitionion. So for 30 days=15 days transitioning. It's best to transition very slowly b/c the digestive process is "asleep."
It's all preference, but you can try a pinch of hand harvested grey sea salt in your food. example: blended spinach with banana and sprinkle of grey salt.
I would suggest avoiding any lemon juice.
Take your time. ;)

If you are really worried about it, you should probably try conscious eating (http://consciouseating.com/index.html). It is a much more intuitive way to go about dieting.

Thank you all for responding to my inquiry. I am not into raw and/or fasting solely for weight loss reasons, that is why I was a little concerned that it was taking me over two weeks to transition back into raw. I am at my optimal weight now, and did not want to lose any more (my clothes are already hanging on me). Was finally able to tolerate some smoothies yesterday, and am looking forward to actually chewing something in the not too distant future. Thanks again ~ Cathy

Never rush in transitioning that is the most serious part in fasting. A 30 day fast would suggest 15 days of transitioing but that depends on each person.......take it slow until you rebuild the digetive proceess --which is what is happening for it being asleep so long.
Take it easy. :)

...the banana /pear smoothie did not agree with me today (I felt blah and shaky about an hour after taking it), so I guess it is back to juicing for a little while longer. Thanks again ~ Cathy
Had to edit this after re-reading the "breaking a long fast" info posted in this forum. I was feeling so dreadful today, that it was reassuring to know that people often experience difficulty (ie sudden detox symptoms and loss of that natural "high") when coming off. Since my appetite has not yet returned, I was seriously considering prolonging the fast just to feel better. I'll just hang in there and pray that this will soon pass.
