Hello everybody. New to this board, have been raw for about a year 90-100% mostly following 80-10-10 but with little bit more fat %. For the last several months I have been struggleing with repeated cooked binges that have really affected me on an emotional and physical level. I get back to being raw and then out of nowhere again I find myself binging on cooked. Still trying to figure out why all of a sudden I have these binge issues when I was happy and raw for the first 8 months with no issues whatsoever. Anyways, I have tried water fasting in the past (3 day was the longest) and today I am beginning a water fast again(not sure how long). I am hoping that it will help me retune my body and stop whatever cooked binge patterns I have developed. So basically posting here and asking for support because I need somebody to hold me accountable and support me on the way. Any advise you might have for me will be very much appreciated. My critical period I know will be tonight when I get back from work all tired and want to sit in front of the computer and munch on something. Please send some positive thoughts my way as I am really hoping to put an end to this crazy binge cyle and believe that a fast might help me. I know I didn't go about this the right way since I know the best thing is to transition into a fast from few days juicing. Instead I am jumping little bit prematurely into this since last night was my last cooked vegan binge, but I am just tired of all this and really want to get started on the fast. How do I know how long to go for? How should I break the fast? I am thinking maybe juicing for a day and green smothies for a couple after. Thank you for listening. I hope I can be victorious with this deeply disturbing cooked issue.
