View Full Version : Starting Over
I feel like I have failed myself.
I cannot stop the binges, I make myself crazy about , my mind does not stay still because I think ,
what if x is wrong and A diet is right,
a day later, what is O diet is the one and A is not.
the next day, what is X was the one..
it goes on and on.....I cannot stay foccused.
Sometimes I go all day worrying about it.
I feel crazy.
I think about food all the time..
Am I crazy?

Kat khan, you should not feel guilt. That is built into the word - "diet". I don't even call eating raw a diet. Whenever I talk about I use the words "raw lifestyle".
The word diet all by itself is a valid word, but it has so many negative connotations.
Have plenty of raw food choices available for easy eating. There are many simple recipes, of just slicing up different veggies, for a salad to spreading nut butter on fruit, to smoothies of all colors.
Good Luck and Peace

I recommend reading this thread for some insight:
There are many of us who are going through or have gone through what you're experiencing.
For me, I had to do some serious, SERIOUS soul-searching to figure out:
1. WHY I'm doing this
2. What benefits I'll receive from it
3. What the effects are if I continue binging because for ME, it wasn't about trying to find a balance between raw and healthy cooked (rice, steamed veggies, whole grains, etc.) it was about those cravings for chips, donuts and other junk.
4. I had to do something I hadn't really done before and that was to ask for divine help and in doing that, I was reminded that according to my spiritual beliefs, my body is a temple and I HAVE to treat it as such. I'm trying not to get too "religious/spiritual" in what I'm saying here...but for ME, eating right IS a spiritual thing and before, I wasn't treating it as such. So now, it's becoming easier for me.
Yes, it is hard to get back on track but you have to tell yourself each day that you will eat as much whole, raw food as you can even if you DO end up eating something else..as Sweetlips wrote once before, "Begin again". Don't give up.
Figure out why you're doing this and address whatever it is you feel may be keeping you from doing what you feel in your heart is right to do.
You'll get there...slipping and falling as we call it, is all part of the process for many if not all.
