View Full Version : A brief detour into cooked
03-21-2007, 01:40 PM
So I had completed over 30 days of being raw, and my boyfriend came home on leave from overseas. He's an omnivore, and I had already determined that I would be eating some cooked food, because the poor guy has been living on military rations for a year, and I wanted to join him in some celebration.
Not only did my appetite drop dramatically, but my cooked food cravings didn't reappear as I expected they would. I ate mostly veggie stuff, and was craving more raw than anything. Now that he's back there (sniff), I'm going back to raw, and I don't feel I really missed a beat at all. I even lost 6 pounds while I was with him! I think my body just knew I was going to be going off for a while, and was blessedly forgiving.
Yay, raw, Yay!!!

The longer I'm Raw, when I've dabbled in cooked food again, the more scorched I end up feeling, the more painful the aftermath. Wish I could be one of those people who can swing both ways, but I've been wholly Raw for a month and I'm thinking life will be sunnier if I stay this way. It's getting easier for me to deal with social implications of being Raw too, which seems to be one of our biggest obstacles. Hope those cravings don't catch up with you later. Keep us updated on cravings or lack of them. You be my guinea pig. I don't want to experiment.

I love your enthusiasm. Everybody comes back to raw. I look forward to hearing more about your raw food adventures.

You're good. It was just temporary... :)

Glad to hear you were able to join your boyfriend (& eating cooked) during his visit without ill aftereffects.I'm also glad that you feel absolutely certain of your strength to Stay Raw!
What a blessing!

Believe me, I don't think see-sawing back and forth is something I want to do. I feel better when I eat raw. I think it's just a testimony to how healthy I'd gotten my body that I didn't get ultra sick from eating cooked. Still, the food tasted bland and dead to me. :)
