View Full Version : Questions about raw

I just started raw again and this is my second week. I have been raw with the exception of two days when we were on vacation. I am trying to do 100%
My question is I don't feel that "buzz" Alissa talks about after only two days being raw. I also am still not feeling much energy. How long does it take before you have off the wall energy?

That's pretty individual and also a continuum. For me, I felt better and better and then the best after I lost access weight, followed by a cleanse and then simple raw. That was the most incredible, incredible experience. Complete euphoria.
You're doing very fine....give it time. Oh, and you might feel worse before you feel better..
...without knowing your stats or health issues or diet or food sensitivities (that you might not even know about either yet), it's hard to answer when's and how's...and even if I did know all that, I actually still couldn't say.
Just know that it tends to be gradual (so gradual that in fact you may not realize the difference untill you slip, and then say 'aaaah yes, this is what I used to feel like')....and that this gradual upswing also has valleys and plateaus.

Trinut, one of the things I really like about this e community is that everyone is totally open with how quickly or slowly they progress. You will find that a lot of the websites that promise you will feel like superwomen or become a skinny model in just a month may be totally misleading for you. I think the people with the most astonishing results are the ones with the websites that draw you in most. That may not TOTALLY be a bad thing, because it does make some of us try things we may not have tried before, right? But it also makes some people quit after just a week or a month because they aren't having dramatic changes.
I wanted to lose weight and boy, is it coming off slow. But the other health benefits, coming a little at a time, are benefits I didn't really expect. Hang in there, feel free to discuss your motivations, detox symptoms (if any) and successes. You'll find a lot of support here! :)

I agree with the fact that this is truly an individual thing. Try incorporating green smoothies into your daily diet. THEN you'll get that glow and buzz going. I'll bet a body part.
Going 100% WILL give one the buzz and glow. Not doing 100%? It's gonna take a little longer because your body is using energy and it's supply of enzymes to digest food.
Give it time.
Try 30 days at 100% raw and see what happens.
It DOES work. Trust the process.
You didn't get unhealthy and tired overnight. Don't expect miracles.
Every BODY is different.
It WILL work.
