Hi everyone , thank god i found this site , its been great reading all your post and comments , im new to being raw , and have been fully raw nearly a week now , its going great aprt from some little things
1. I have constant insomnia ( I assumed its just me detoxing)
2. Im eating loads more than what i used to , I can only assume this is ok as its all salads and veg etc
3. LOL bit of a silly question , how many avo's or avacados are to much , as i eat them with all my meals so i eat prb about 2 a day is that to much? as somone told me that its very very calorific
Other than that i have to say its been great my skin feels alot smoother and my stomach well feels tons lighter
heres hoping to go the full month

Sounds like you are doing great! My friend Matt Monarch talks about when he first went raw he ate a TON! I think Alissa also addresses it in her book! When you are transitioning, don't worry about the amount. As long as you are eating 100% raw, you will eventually get into a place that your body feels satisfied and you don't need to eat a lot.
If your goal is weight loss and you are able to be really disciplined, then try cutting back on the high calorie fruits and veggies and look at Alissa's food combining chart! Because avocados are pretty high in fat, I try not to eat them if I'm going to have fruit later. The combination of the fat, plus the fruit calories makes me gassy! :)
Douglas Graham's book "80/10/10" is a good read about food combining and calorie intake! I recommend reading it!

hi again bearlove - you are doing great!
when going raw, just eat whatever feels good - if you check out alissa's book, she talks alot about how, when first going raw, the best thing to do is "overthink" the process. you will know when you've had enough.
the insomnia maybe coming from the huge infusion of food enzymes, making your system jump for joy - or maybe you are so psyched for your new lifestyle. give it some time.
check out the monthly challenge - it's a blast.

Welcome! It's great to meet you, I'm glad you found this site, it's full of amazing people!!
I would say don't worry about what you're eating for now. Things will balance out. Perhaps you need extra avo right now, and a month from now, not as much. Everyone's body is different! Just go with the flow & enjoy the ride!!!:D
