View Full Version : Popping them pills...

So here's the thing. In my past, I used to religiously take diet pills. Then ephedra was taken off the market, so I found other pills to take. One day I decided I didn't want to live my life putting harmful stuff like that into my body. Which was sooo terrifying. Because I was (still am) scared to gain weight and get fat. I am not heavy, sometimes I think I am, but I am teaching myself to eat moreso raw because I know its better for my, for my mood, health, and that I can't gain weight eating live foods. So now I am trying to transition myself. I don't know whats stopping me. I feel like in a way I try to blame it on others. Like at work a lot of the people all go to lunch together and I like to go too, but then I let my guard down and just follow along. Which is what I do at home too with my fiance or if people are over. But I know I have to be stronger. So I no longer take any pills, but when I eat SAD I get the urge to go to the store to take diet pills b/c I feel like just one more pill wont hurt. But I haven't taken that one more pill. Its hard. Why can't I commit to living 100% raw. Has anyone been down this path?

I've taken diet pills before. Xenadrine with ephedra and Hydroxycut with ephedra. I lost weight, but I also began having panic attacks and other heart (so it seemed/seems) problems. I learned about raw food and as soon as I quit the pills and started the raw the panic attacks, breathing problems, erratic heart beat, and depression stopped and I immediately felt a HUGE relief. I will NEVER go down that road again. NEVER.
One more pill does matter. Remember that proverbial last straw.
If there is sooooo much that we are being fed (force fed in some cases) because we are told it's healthy, imagine how toxic something must be that they actually ADMIT it unhealthy to the point of making it illegal (ephedra).
Good luck. Don't give up on raw. It can be difficult at first, and sometimes later, but it is fabulous.

Its been quite a few months (I lost track) since I have taken any of sort of pills. I found a place near me that has lectures on buddhism and meditation. I really want to have that spiritual path back in my life. I think it will help me gain more wisdom and strength having somewhere like that to go to once a week. Not like the old days where my mother would take me to sunday school. I am in my 20's and searching for my own path. I have a positive feeling this will help me place myself on the raw track to health :)
