View Full Version : I need a little help...

Hi guys. First off thanks to everyone on this forum. You all are really nice and full of knowledge. Here's my deal. I believe 100% in raw food and I'm trying soooo hard to stick to it. The only thing is, I CANT eat enough. I love fruit and what not, but I just can't eat enough to sustain my caloric needs. I just don't ever want to eat. This is new for me, I used to always snack on stuff. So lately it's been like some fruit for breakfast...the I won't eat all day, then I'll end up going to Quiznos and getting a veggie sub because I just don't want anything else. Any advice? I really want to be raw but I just can't seam to want to eat anything. I love fruit, peaches, plums, and ALL kinds of melons, but I just don't want to eat them for some reason. I keep buying food and it goes bad cuz it just sits there. I'm not sure really how to jumpstart my appetite? Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Perhaps fasting for a day or two would put you on track or trying some savory foods rather than fruit if you feel you should eat something, but it sounds like your body telling you it needs a break.

Thanks for the response =] The thing is though I've only been raw a few days this time around..so I'm not sure it's that i need a break...and I've tried fasting and I can't even get through a day haha.

Try having some raisins, nuts (pecans, walnuts etc...), larabars, GORAW cookies or other things you can snack on for the rest of the day around. I find it nice to have something other than just fruits and veggies to eat to break up the monotony. Also, you might want to think about getting a dehydrator to make yourself some bread-type or cracker type foods. That's the thing I feel is missing from my diet. There are places you can order raw breads and crackers from online. But it would be much cheaper in the long run to just buy the equipment to make your own. Hope this helps.
