Well, it's been 11 days all raw, except for my one cup of yerba mate in the morning. I am sleeping so incredibly much. I have been through incredible amounts of stress this past year, 2 rounds of steroids, which were an awful, vicious cycle of symptoms and side-effects, a big dose of antibiotic, plus the usual processed food nightmare--although it was vegan, it was lots of soy, sugar and wheat, etc. I am fortunately in a position now b/c of my work schedule to be able to sleep until I awaken, so I'm just letting myself sleep. I'm enjoying my food, and I know I'm eating plenty, so this must be a detox and my body "letting go" of soooooo much stuff...I'm feeling exhausted on a very deep level.
Any other newly raw marathon sleepers out there?

I almost always hit this on day 4. I slept and slept this morning, myself. :p Last few days of summer vacation and then it's up with the alarm for me. Tomorrow is day 4 of 100% and I'm feeling very sleepy too! (And emotional.)

Raw turns people into cats. :D

Back in May when I went 100% raw, I took two weeks of vacation - spread out over four weeks (half day vacation each day). I only had to work four hours a day at my company for almost the entire month.
I used all that time to settle into my raw lifestyle and deal with any detox symptoms that might appear.
For about five weeks, I felt like I was on antidepressants, kind of a mellow, didn't care about anything, vegged out watching TV, lying on the couch a lot. Then it passed, and I felt back to normal. Normal being the way I felt before I went raw. Not better, just back to normal.

When I am doing 100 percent, I sleep alot for the first few weeks for some reason. Like I'll start eating 100 percent raw, then feel sleepy and low key for a few weeks or so then I'll have alot of energy again IF I stay raw through it all. When I go back to cooked, the cycle starts all over again. So it's just best to sleep it off, like a cat, lol. that was cute. If I were to be an animal, I would be a cat:cool: !!

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I'm actually up this morning at 9, which is an hour or so earlier than my recent norm. :) Maybe it's passing?
I looooove the cat cartoon! I def. like the cattitude and having a slinky cat-like body wouldn't be so bad, either! :D
