A Little of This; A Little of That
Fit or Fat or Fat 2 Fit?
Something else to be aware of in the Fit or Fat? lifestyle and that is ~ when wanting something, do you REALLY like it? For me, I don't especially like the cheese, the bread or the pizza He gets so, why AM I wanting to eat it? (see the last post about monkey mind). Next question ~ are you raw or not? IF you are not 100%, then it's easier to dive into cooked foods of all kinds by saying "well, I'm NOT 100% raw sooooo...."... If you are, you say "I'm raw vegan" and be done with it.
I've done that with first, not drinking. "I'm a non-drinker"; "I don't drink". What's fun with that one is, people will ask me if I'm a friend of Bill W's or, if I have a drinking problem (well, no, I don't drink ~ where's the problem?)... they assume SOMEthing has to be wrong if I don't drink.
When I went vegetarian, same thing. "I'm vegetarian". That was the end of it. I just don't eat animal carcasses.
So, raw has to, for me be the same. Awareness. Am I raw, or not. If not, how willing am I to go in not eating certain cooked items or, OVEReating what I eat? The thing for me is, when eating cooked food, it's so devoid of nutrients, I overeat so, the solution is IF I'm going where cooked food is served, eat ahead, be nourished. If I can, bring something raw to share. Doesn't have to be much; doesn't have to be mentioned that it's raw... just bring it, share it and enjoy your food and the company.
