View Full Version : New to raw and eating like a pig???
Okay today is day 2 of totally raw. I just can't seem to get enough of all of this nutrition. It's not the same like over eating just cause it tastes good, but knowing you shouldn't. I just want to eat and eat and eat, but it's more like I NEED it to heal....
anyone else go thru this??

Yeap, yeap, and still am. I'm on day six now and I eat, eat, eat, eat. It is starting to slow down some though. I think part of it is that I am getting the hang of raw cooking. I had what I would consider a real 'meal' today. I had wraps with kale chips. I've been so craving a sandwhich and chips, this did the job! You can see how much I've been eating by checking out my journal, I've been keeping it up daily.
Hope that helps you some!

Me too. I'm amazed at how little some people eat.
Since it's raw and healthy, I'm just going with it. It's not nearly as much as I ate on cooked food. I think our bodies just adjust naturally, so I'm not worried.
I haven't been craving nuts so I'm not worried about my portions at all. Not that I would, even if I were eating nuts. I just don't see how I can over eat. It doesn't even feel like it's possible. Our bodies are so happy with this raw food........our bodies, in turn, will take care of us.

I haven't been big on the nut thing either. If I make something that has nuts in it, like nut mylk for a shake or hummus that has nuts in it then I"ll eat some, but for the most part I don't grab nuts to eat. If I do grab them it is like 3 or 4 and then I'm done. I have been having one avacado a day, but one isn't going to hurt me, if I was eating them around the clock then it would be an issue. My normal lunch has been an avacado, smashed with a spice or sometimes plain, and then use that as a spread for my flax crackers. I'm _really_ enjoying that right now. I figure I'll get over it here in a bit, then my cracker consumption will go down. I do that, when I find something I like I'll eat it till I"m sick of it. Then I won't have any for several months, then I'll come back to it. Similar to the seasonal cycles of veggies and fruit I think, either that or I'm just plain WEIRD! :D

I've been eating raw for 10 months now and I still eat like a pig! Sometimes I'm very self conscious of it because people will ask me how I eat so much...... If I don't eat enough, I get so ravenous, I do some serious overeating. Or I'll eat cooked if I'm not careful.
