View Full Version : I am still getting the hang of this
I have been 100% raw since around 20 Oct 2008. I have Alissa's book. I am too tired to think coz it's half past one in the a.m. here. I am a little confused about "transition raw" and wondering whether there is a wrong way to do raw and whether I am doing that. By the way: what is a 'tag'?

People will need a lot more details, list what you typically eat in a day or a week and what you are doing to transition to raw.

Hi Tess, give us a bit more information and we might be able to hep out.
Transition food often refers to the heavier nut, grain, etc. based foods that mimic SAD food, sit heavy in the stomach satisfying SAD food cravings.
Transition foods can also mean things like sprouted grain breads, miso, etc which are not raw but aid in eating and staying with the raw foods lifestyle for some.
My advice? Just relax! Never worry about your food, eat what you want if it's raw, as long as you feel good about it. The only other advice I'd mention is to try and get as much greens as you can, in green smoothies, juices, salads etc.
If you need non raw transition foods, don't stress about it, just try and eat as much fresh fruit, veg as you can and feel comfortable with.
I'm sure you'll be fine! :D

Tag........You're it:D. I don't know, I don't "SWEAT" the small Stuff. It Bogs me down. Just keeping RAW, any way I can is Fine with me. But this is a Personal Journey and we all travel in different Vehicles but manage to arrive at the same dedtination. Have a RAW Day.

Hi! A tag is a description you can add to your post so people can find it better. Like, if you posted a lasagna recipe, you could add tags that say "Zucchini, tomato, raw, lasagna, cashews, dinner, Italian, mozzarella" etc. Does that make sense?
as for raw, there is no wrong way. Well, actually, there is! The wrong way to do raw is to not eat a varied diet. Like, if you just ate dates and nuts all day, you might become deficient in certain vitamins. Transition raw is just cutting out the baddies in your diet until you are comfortable eating 100%. Most people can do it cold turkey and jump in to being 100% raw, but some of us (including me!) have emotional attachments to food we need to work out before we can give it up for good.
