View Full Version : Halloween Horrors!!

So off to a potluck i went--after almost a week of fasting with just an evening of a raw cheat--then last night -bread and cooked veg. chili--not bad considering the junk there--but slipped today--more chili--i had brought it!! That is the largest amount of cooked food i have had in weeks! I haven't had bread, choc. or ice cream in about 3 wks and have been 95% raw with the odd cooked potato fry and dressing sneaking in. But let me just say--the food tasted, well , not real if that makes sense--and worse--after eating it i felt absolutely awful. That horrible full feeling i used to always have--i don't ever feel awful when i eat raw. So i know i am getting there and that was an experience for me just to notice the incredible difference back to back. I know i am on my way--and i have lost weight and just felt so light all the time. Sad part there was hearing parents say" no Joey, no junk food till you eat your supper, now go have a hot dog!". Poor child. That and they were carving pumpkins and guess where all those wonderful seeds went--in a huge wheelbarrow destined for the compost bin. What a pity!!
So here is to all of us on our journey--we are doing great!! But i am wondering what the rest of you 'not quite there yets' do in these situations? Also what is your cooked food 'weakness' and what do you do about it?

I hear you, Corky! But try not to be too hard on yourself. One of things I've found is that the times get shorter and shorter in between going back and forth from raw to cooked. Each time I eat cooked and feel horrible I get back to raw quicker!
Anyway, for me, it's bread, bread and bread! I love bread.

I'm with vegbaby...don't be too hard on yourself. I think with each episode, you grow closer and closer to being all raw because your body beats you up enough! LOL!
Take it all in stride!

Vegbaby and Rawkinlocs have hit the nail of the head! I have had similar expierence this weekend.... I ate some spinach dip and pita chips. I didn't feel as bad about going off the diet as much as that feeling I had the next few days made me SORRY I did! It's so true... you crave to feel good after a while... keep it up!

now this is strange cos i dont like raw much right but you know when i was all raw i never once had a craving..i put it down to asking the angels to take any craving away when i begun.yeah i stuggled when i was sat out in the cold eating my cold pudding..i struggled eating my pud on some pavement while the smell of pizza wafted my way.i felt real grief as i drove past my favourite places and it was real grief - once i had itentifiied it as such i was able to deal with it in the same way as any loss. i noticed all the feelings i had and i dealt with them..i am a rebirther so i used breathing a lot to move through feelings.
its my opinion that the more one is emotionaly healed ..clear whatever word you want to use the more easy it is to be raw...i notice it a lot...bacause food is an emotive issue it will bring up our "stuff" so the more emotional baggage we have the more will come up...if we imo have good ways of dealing with our emotions i believe we will beable to eat raw food alot easier.
so my advice is yes get the physical covered ..but also make sure you have good emotianal support for all those emotions been triggered by food.

Well put Marigold! And feelin' Good--what is it about spinach dip?? :p I wonder if there is a raw version?? Thanks Rawkinlocs and Vegbaby for the kind words! It is all a journey and like Feelin' Good said, its the way one feels after eating cooked-just not the same and makes you want to stay raw.
