View Full Version : Ate egg
03-22-2011, 12:58 PM
I have always been very experimental with food. I ate anything and everything. I have been completely raw for 3 days. My manager went on vacation and brought me back quaile eggs to try. 2 for him 2 for me. He brought them across the damn country because he wanted me to try them. I couldnt say no and I ate two of the little buggers.
Now I feel guilty as hell that I didn't stay with my plan to stay 30 days raw. How do you all deal with setbacks when you were going raw? I know I should just suck it up, but I am pissed at myself.
Just venting... Thanks

I don't beat myself up. For me, guilt is not conducive to a positive weight release and health benefit. So, I don't feel guilty. I, too, just make my next meal raw.

It is a learning experience. I am now in a place that i am guilt free to say NO no matter what others put effort to make or bring food that i don't eat. I put myself first, this has been journey.
I agree, just make your next meal raw and focus on your accomplishment. Every positive steps that you do for your health count even more.
Be proud of you

How nice that your manager thought of you!
Don't think of this isolated incident as a slip-up. You weighed your options and chose to eat the eggs, and this is not a punishable slip-up! There aren't any more quail eggs and you're not going to use this as an excuse to keep slipping up ("oh, I had some cooked food, my all-raw plan is ruined, I might as well have more bad food!"). You will keep with the raw food and succeed your goal of 30 days raw! :)

Just cause you ate egg doesn't mean you have to eat crow!
I have to agree. It's one little thing. Tell me you didn't have HUGE benefits from those few days, already, for your body and soul!
You just dust off and keep going.
None of us is perfect. It's a Human Thing. But we get better at sticking to what we want. And we learn how much it can stink to delve into The Other World.
It's all good! You are doing great for sticking to it so much, and now you can keep on for the rest of your 30 days! :)

Everyone has given excellent advice. I am big on beating myself up but I realized it isn't worth it. One of my main reasons for going raw is so that I can stop mentally torturing myself everytime I pig out on bad food. And the other night I did have a slip up - but it was just one small piece of something (egg and cheese quiche actually) and instead of saying "Ok, well this day is screwed - now I can eat whatever I want and start again tomorrow like I might do on an SAD diet" - but I didn't do that. I said, ok, I had a bite of that and it definitely wasn't worth it so lets have a banana next. It felt so good. So if I have a minor slip up, all these days raw is still a great accomplishment - its a healing journey - both mentally and physically. Love yourself - no one is perfect and the goal of the raw diet is not to make us perfect. :heart

If it makes you feel better, today is also my 4th day and I slipped.
My coworker who is the one of the nicest guys in the world ... (super sweet, in his 70's, formerly retired, super active) came in with Macraroons, but not raw ones. I didn't want to make him feel bad because he made them especially for me and my co-worker without knowing I'd decided to do 100% raw.
So I ate one. And while it was delicious, I got a crazy sugar high from it. I haven't eaten anything with regular sugar for at least 2 months so I guess my body just wasn't ready for it.
I will not eat another one though. Lesson learned. Onward & upward. :-)
Just so you know you're not alone. :D

True. I am always pleased when I try something I omitted only to find it enforces the reason I omitted it in the first place. Each time it will get easier to say no. Two steps forward, one step back.
