View Full Version : Help, what's happening to me

I've been Raw for 33 days now and loving but, there is a problem. I don't know what to eat. Everything I eat taste nasty to me but salads and smoothies. I am craving salty and sweet things as well. I make salads and put sea salt in my salads or, if I make a smoothie I am putting 3-4 dates in my smoothies is this normal?

I am no expert, but I think throughout the raw journey your tastes change several times.
So, to me it sounds normal. I have only been living on fruits and salads for about 2-3 weeks now.
But, maybe someone that can better put into words what I am trying to say will post! LOL
Just like when you eat SAD, you seem to only want certain things, right. I assume it's got to be the same with raw as well.

Yes, this is common...we've all gone through the "Nothing tastes good" phase.
Just please, whatever you do, don't mistake that for a "need" to go to anything cooked. Who was it that said here on the board, "If you're not hungry enough to eat raw, you're not really hungry"? I forgot...but it's a good one!
Your body MAY want a fast or just to eat those two things you're eating...for NOW. More than likely it won't last long...it's just periods that our bodies and tastebuds go through as changes and adjustments are taking place.
I think someone had also mentioned if you're craving a lot of sweet that you need to boost calcium and that drinking sesame seed milk would be good (or up the greens in your smoothies OR add some sesame seeds and blend with your smoothies...I do this daily)
But just try to ride this out for now...it'll pass! Congrats on 33 days raw!!! :D
