View Full Version : ok, detox again

Sorry, I know there are like a thousand posts just like this one, but I really need to know:
I've been having terrible headaches and felt so darn tired ever since I started going more raw. I still have cooked stuff in my diet, so my question is:
Will keeping cooked stuff in my diet make the detox take longer? because this is awful, I can't do this for very much longer if these headaches are gonna last.
I am drinking plenty of water, and eating, sleeping and all, exercising, laughing. But it's gotten to a point where my work is being damaged by my lack of energy, and I'm thinking about going back to cooked foods just to make these stressful weeks.

Yes, I believe the more cooked in your diet, the longer the detox. The less cooked, the HARDER the detox could be because it's coming out fast and hard without any thing (cooked) to slow it down. What raw are you eating and what cooked are you eating? We may be able to help more with taht information :o

Darn, I knew it when I first posted:p .. ofcourse it'll take longer... :rolleyes:
Today I had
1 grapefruit and rasins for breakfast
1 apple, 1 slice of bread and pieces of cucmber and tomato at 10
Salad (carrot, tomato, cucmber, cauliflower, lettuce) and lentil "burger" for lunch
2 pears in the afternoon
Salad (as above) with a stick of steamed broccoli for dinner
Quinoa sprouts, spinach, celery, rasins and brazil nuts in the evening.
Plus some soy milk
I've cut out all processed fats and sugars, and no caffeine.
I'd say a normal day is like this, a piece of bred and something cooked I get in school.
I can't cut out the cooked meals I get in school, as the tuition is both rent and meals. Ok, I could, but it would mean major finanial difficulties.
I'm planning on sticking to this for another year (I'll be in school one more year) and then go as raw as possible. I'm basically womdering if I'll have a year of headaches ad fatigue...

I say that's pretty good for what's available to you! Much better than many in school. You've made a change by incorporating more raw right? I think once your body gets used to this level, then the headaches and major detox symptoms will dissipate.

Most schools cater to specific dietary requirements. If you asked them, I'm sure they could give you the veg raw instead of cooked, extra salad, maybe fruit or veg instead of the portion of bread? If you were celiac, they'd be obliged to provide something instead of the bread..... I'm sure they deal with requests for alternatives all the time, I don't think they'd mind.
What do you think? It's worth a try.
