Habits and Addictions
I've been reading Paul Nison's book today, "Raw Food Formula for Health". Most of it I'm already familiar with through the books of Gabrial Cousens, David Wolfe, Alissa Cohen and many others. But I'm looking for new inspiration and I found it in Paul's book:
"A habit is something we do on a regular basis that we could stop doing if we were highly motivated to quit. An addiction is something we are compelled to do even when we know it is harmful. "
I have overcome my addiction to cooked food. Now I need to break my habit of overeating.
I'm preparing for the detox of a juice fast by eating lighter and simpler for the next 5 days, followed by a modified 3 day fast, with juice only on the 2nd day. I plan to rest and relax for those 3 days. Follow that with another 5 days of light and simple.
During this 13 day period the dehydrator will not be turned on, I will not be making raw recipes, or any raw candy.
I'm not looking on it as a hardship. It's a vacation for my digestive system. I look forward to it as a time for observation and detoxification.
