View Full Version : Just curious...

Do any of you go through periods where you're really not that hungry for a few days in row and eat very little? (I'm not talking about when you're fasting, of course). I just went 100% raw 3 days ago and haven't felt that hungry. For instance, all I ate yesterday was about half a bag of frozen grapes. I'm not starving myself or anything. I have been sleeping a lot, so that takes time away from eating. But it just feels so weird not being that hungry after only being 100% raw for a few days. It's unusual for me not to be hungry. But I actually feel better than I have in a while after 3 days of eating raw and minimally. Just curious what your thoughts are.

I'm very new to eating raw its about a week now, and I have had days where I eat 1 or 2 fruits for dinner and I find that I'm not that hungry at all. Last night was the first night that I was very hungry and nothing I ate would curb my hunger. I think it was because I had a small breakfast, who knows.

hunger comes and goes for me. some days i would eat barely anything, other days i'd eat the fridge clean LOL
just go with the flow and know you are listening to your body and that is a good thing!

I've gone through those days, too. Some days, I eat more than normal. Other days, I might have a banana and a salad with olive oil & that's it. There have also been days-because I wasn't hungry-I just didn't eat at all. I wasn't trying not to eat. It just happened. It's weird being under a new concept that you don't have to eat every few hours or your body needs XXX amount of calories to survive. The body knows when it needs food & when it doesn't. If I'm hungry, I eat. If I'm not hungry, I don't eat. Such simple rules now!!

Yes. It's all part of the cycle.

Some mornings I'd eat a few bananas and feel full for a long time, sometimes until dinner. But I always get lost in creativity and often forget to eat.
I love it when that happens!
Have you been sleeping a lot because you're tired?? If so, you are probably doing some very good healing right now. You may find that when the being tired/not hungry is through, you are ravenous with hunger and full of energy. Or you may not. Sounds about like a few phases I've been through, though.

I know how you feel. After the first 4 days of eating raw my hunger pangs subsided and I really didn't crave much... I craved salsa and corn chips the next day though. >_< I need to get myself a dehydrator so I can make me some corn chips! hehe
Not to rub it in.... buuuuuut my husband will be here in Hungary tomorrow with my special ordered dehydrator!!! I have been wanting crackers and chips for about two months now and have been unable to get the crunch without, like celery or nuts or carrots. It's just not the same!! I really, really miss my crackers. Mmmm and pizza!!
jordan, it is totally worth the investment if you are craving the chips and can work it out! I go through phases where I have no desire to use the dehydrator, but there are times when nothing will do but a cracker!
