View Full Version : having trouble getting started
05-06-2009, 09:09 AM
I finished the master cleanse about 2 weeks ago and felt great, so excited to get into raw eating. For some reason I am having a hard time getting started. I am still craving my old way of eating and fall of the wagon daily. I am getting so frustrated with myself.
What do you do to keep yourself on the raw plan?
Thanks for any advice,

Establish one health goal and stick with it. Keep cleansing, healing, eating raw foods and drink plenty of raw fresh green juices. Experiment. The master cleanse was just the beginning. If you can do the MC, you have great willpower. Just apply that to your new health goals. Take it one moment at a time and don't beat yourself up. You're doing great. Best wishes.

The thread Diamond posted is wonderful, read it!
I myself have been 99% raw for about a week and a half, and i stay motivated by thinking a lot about the good foods, fruits, veg.. I don't think about what i miss at all, i just keep my mind positive and focused on raw foods. Also, i read a lot online, success stories, recipies, adivce, everything. I'm just tuned in to raw...
What helps me (i'm very very very interessted in food, cooking,baking and all that) is to make up recipes. Like, i tried making a tomato sauce and butternut noodles, and i loved that, so i had it for three days. Then i found something else.
Funny, on a vegan diet i never felt like having the same thing twice, but now i feel like i could have a certain dish for a month if i felt like it.
Stay positive, read a lot, eat the (raw) foods you feel like eating/crave, and come here for support whenever you feel there's a bump in the raw path.

Just start....eat one raw food moment to moment. Let it go however it goes. It is a process of going raw and a process of being raw. Enjoy for it is great!
Read here n everywhere. The more you learn the more it makes sense for you.
Set a powerful WHY you want raw. With that you will have motivation that never ends.
Best to you..we are here for you.
