View Full Version : Day 6 of raw- When do I start to see changes?
02-21-2010, 09:26 AM
This is my 6th day of being 100 percent raw. When does my skin start clearing up? Right now my skin is actually worse than ever and I'm very tired. I'm now 98 pounds but I look heavier and am extremely bloated and puffy looking.:confused: When did you guys start noticing changes?

I'm not a guy yet, I'll respond.
You're already seeing changes... just not what you expect/want.
Natural healing doesn't mask symptoms as drugs do so it takes time to heal.
You're changes ~ your skin is worse. How are your bowel movements? What happens is, you skin is a third elimination point and if one's bowels are not working as well as they might, toxins are eliminated via this giant organ. As the toxins are eliminated and the bowels begin working better, your skin will clear up.
You're tired ~ you're body/digestion system may be working overtime to deal with the new fiber that's coming in. (I say "may" because I have NO idea what you're eating and what you call "raw").
Bloating ~ see "You're Tired" It happens and has happened to the best of us. ;)
Have patience; read blogs, trust the process and play with your food.

On day four for me I got a sudden cold that lasted two days. My face became brighter after about 2 weeks, and after a month and a half I felt extremely happy all of the time. My hair seems to be of a better quality, too. :D I am also bloating , though. :o My skin did get greaser at some point, but I left it alone and it cleared itself up.
But remember, everybody is different! It's the most important thing to remember while on raw, imho.

I ended up having raw tuna today. Will this impede the detox process?

You can do it..stick with it and you will see positive changes.
I am on my seventh day to day and so far the only really difference in my journey is this huge zit or whatever right where my nose connect to my forehead..and a few very tiny zits along hairline..my face seems greasier..but that is Ok, I know it par for the course.
I have a lot of energy, waking up an hour before my alarm clock is going off and generally feel good..but I am waiting for my major detox to kick in, cause it will come won't it? The one thing I have noticed, I am cold a lot..

I was only eating raw fruits and veggies, mainly fruits. I'm so tired and feel sick and lightheaded. I just hope eating the raw fish (no sauce or seasonings) didn't stop the detoxing and make me start all over again.:mad:

How tall are you?

5'2. Strangely I weighed less when I was eating only junk food.

probably because you were malnourished.
I know this wont be liked- but some raw foodists do include raw meats in their diet- its not a deal breaker, and raw tuna is better then eating a hamburger. If your mission is to cleanse your body, you should omit raw meat/fish and super dense foods so htat your body focuses less on digestion and more on healing.
