View Full Version : Feeling really irritated after eating a little cooked food? Normal for raw foodies?

I don't have a dehydrator yet, and absolutely could not find a snack yesterday that was raw that sounded good, so I ended having quite a few flax chips. We also had a small amount of homemade spaghetti with dinner yesterday (everything I ate yesterday besides that was raw). Today, I feel really irritated and kind of in a crappy mood, and also felt very tired this morning. My brain feels a little foggy. I have not felt like this since in probably 2 weeks (been raw for a month). Is this just my body trying to get rid of the cooked food I gave it yesterday? If so, how long will it take before I'm back to normal? I hate feeling like this. :-( I've been about 90% raw, and feel like yesterday was too much.

It could be but at least some of it will be psychological. You are cross with yourself for slipping up.

That I am. :-/ I mean, it wasn't a lot of food - maybe 20% of what I ate that day - but I feel like it must have been just enough to make my body go, "What the HECK is all this??? Get it out!" haha

Yes, the little bit of cook food will do this if you have been 100% raw for that long. Your body is used to a different way to digest and adding cook food will give you a clear signal to stay away from cook food.
Pasta is so clogging (home made or not). Imagine you are trying to push play dough in a tube of glass. I would just continue on raw food and your body will normalize. Orange is very helpful to cleanse your guts.
All the best!

That is not the way it would effect me but it would have an effect. I would feel stiff and slow. You will have to be better prepared the next time.

i've actually had those same symptoms from detoxing, but yea it does sound more likely that for you the spaghetti had something to do with it
