View Full Version : So stressed out!

OK, QUICK recap. prior to trying to go completely raw a few days ago due to severe allergies my diet consisted of fruit, raw and cooked veggies and brown rice THATS IT.
I have been doing ALRIGHT however, I feel so sick!! I am not sure what to do and I am extremely frustrated. Rice makes the sickness go away, I dont want to eat it, but I feel so sick at work. Is there anything I can do? Im feeling so down right now.........I feel like its just 1 tiny thing........why is it so hard to kick? ........its making me absolutely insane!

It sounds like your body is actually hooked on rice. :(
I would say at LEAST give the 100% raw 10 more days to kick in... that's a minimum opportunity to see what happens!
I was still eating smalll (very small) portions of CHEESE until recently, and when I decided to go TOTALLY OFF cheese, I felt sick and grumpy and headachey for DAYS...
But now??? I have LOST lbs, stopped bloating, and my energy level is back on HIGH! :D
It IS worth it...stick it out, like I suggested, for at least 10 days. That will give you time, hopefully, to get over the "withdrawals" from rice. :)

Maybe try to cut back little by little every day until you have none? For me the more raw I have the more my body wants it, when I do fall off the wagon I feel yukkie and think twice about reaching next time for that non raw item.
I love your avatar by the way- so pretty.

I feel like If I try to slowly cut back, I will never stop eating it.

Try sipping on a Smoothie or nibbing something RAW when you feel sick.
Have you jumped on the green smoothie bandwagon yet?
my aunt is hooked on rice, too. i know the lethargy and pain you are talking about, b/c i see it in her. it's really extreme!
your body sounds like it's going through serious withdrawal. it's going to take some time, but in the end, you'll come out feeling much better like you've never felt before. it's going to be extremely rewarding and wonderful. if you can bare it, keep going strong. it's definitely not all for naught.
when you can, get some rest. :)

Sorry you're feeling so lousy. You're valiantly toughing out the hardest part right now (kudos to you for that, btw!) - just hang in there a little while longer and the worst of it will be over soon. *hugs*
And yes, oai is awesomeness. :D
