View Full Version : It's been a few months

I don't remember much about how i did
but I fell off this diet in October.
It was because I was stressed that I wasn't doing well enough.
I tried to force myself to be the healthiest I could be. I often chose fruit over vegetables. And I kinda beat myself up for it.
But I learned to take it slow and not to stress about it.
But I've been having a very difficult time getting back on.
I'm really good at putting it off until the next day because I've been doing it for months. My body is tired of it. But it still craves for more.
I'm 15 and a guy. So I am lugging a load of bananas, mango, or romaine to school.
I ate some Ezekiel bread today. Then some cheese.
I just didn't feel it today.
I may start tomorrow, or Monday.
I'm sure I'll do it.
If you can share a good transition food that helped you, it would be appreciated.

bananas are most filling for me. Do you eat any nuts and seeds? try adding more dark greens to your daily intake. Kale, chard, spinach, dandelion greens, etc.
Regardless of how many times you may feel like you have failed, or not doing good enough remember that deep inside you is a yearning for this. It's not there just by some crazy coincedence. Your body and soul know what's best for you. Just remember your mind only has as much power as you give it. Follow your heart. and it will lead you to where you need to be.
There is no such thing as not doing well enough. Your body is tired and craving because it's hungering for real, live raw foods. Our bodies are most forgiving for what we do to them. You are young and strong so take advantage of this time in your life and give the gift of a strong healthy life. Regardless of how many years that will be. :-D

You are still very young!
Try not to stress too much over the idea of eating "perfectly", you will develop your own lifestyle and find your balances as you grow up. Your body is FAR from done developing.
Just eat healthy and make good choices. At your age, this could mean just being sure you eat plenty of fruit and veggies throughout the day (don't stress over, say, "too much" fruit or "too much" veg etc)... choosing the home-prepared meals made from whole food ingredients, say, instead of fast food or too much restaurant food. I'm not one of the people here that will advocate 100% raw vegan food all day every day, especially for somebody who is only 15 years old. Keep your choices, whether they be raw or cooked, vegan or not, as PURE as possible. Choose WHOLE food ingredients and let your family be aware that you want to fill your life with the best foods possible.
When you are even a few years older, you may barely be able to recognize yourself in the mirror! Let yourself develop and don't kick yourself too hard at this moment. The truth is, the fact that you are even THINKING about being conscious about what you eat is going to put you at a MAJOR advantage in the future. Most people at that age are living on fries and whatever else dispenses from a soda machine! :)

I think the previous posters have said it all! :)
To keep with raw foods, perhaps try eating more (bigger meals, more often?) or more filling foods (bananas are a favourite, or nut-based puddings) and lots and lots of greens! Best wishes for you!

you are still growing ! get some chlorella powder. Teaspoon a day in water. That should supercharge you :)

I have similar issues and struggles. The first two times I tried to dive right in, and I crashed. This time I'm slowly transitioning one meal at a time and it's working much better for my body.
