View Full Version : I've gotten to the point where I can't eat cooked food at all Help!!!
I started my raw food journey 21/2 years ago. I did it primarily for health reasons (IBS and rheumatoid arthriits). Adding the raw foods and not eating sugar and processed food eliminated almost immediately the RA. Unfortunately the IBS hasn't cleared up completely. I don't really know why. It just is. Even though I was always very highly raw and at times completely raw, now any cooked food at all throws me off completely as if I have just been poisoned. The problem is I don't want to be all raw. I want to occasionally have grains or cooked soups. Yesterday I had a small piece of homemade bread ( no preservatives) 2 homemade cookies and a rice cake (not all at once). THis was in addition to my raw foods and I haven't stopped sneezing since. My head is all stuffed up.
Does anyone have advice for me???

Hmmmmmm. Your body seems to want all raw maybe? That might not be such a bad thing.
Grains n all that are very congesting.
Advice I guess....deal with the results of the cooked whatever they may be or follow your body and eat all raw. I dunno.

Well...I for one am not going to say have cooked. Everything you ate yesterday? You can have a Raw version and obviously your body wants that too.Your IBS has not cleared up because you are still consuming dead foods; and your body then has to use its enzymes to digest those nasty foods instead of you consuming healing foods full of their own enzymes.
Why do you not want to go 100%? Fear of missing out on favorite foods? There isn't ANY SAD/CRAP food that cannot be recreated Raw.

This thread is not what this forum is about. Sorry... we can't assist you integrate cooked foods into your diet.
But... eating 100% raw will (I believe completely) heal your body. It's totally your choice if you don't want to live that way. I know for myself... my body just can't digest cooked food. It just can't. It made me sick before I went raw and still does. So... what do I choose to do? I choose to be raw so my body is healthy, vibrant and feels GOOD.
I wish you the best.
