Going rawesome and detoxing questions
I'm new here on the forum and in eating raw. I've been eating almost a 100% raw for 19 days now and the first week-and-a-half was awesome: Even though I got very tired and sleepy, I had a pretty much instant radical increase in energy, alertness, happyness. I felt so grateful and was so spiritually there, it was marvelous.
Now, during the past week, I've been somewhat grumpy and I need more sleep. I eat the same amount of food, mostly three massive 1L (0.26 gallon) green + fruit smoothies every day, and I've been experimenting with other stuff to sooth my umami cravings, like quinoa salads, tasty rolls (lots of seeds and cold-pressed olive oil) and stuff like that. Still, this past week it just takes a couple of hours before I need to eat again, and I'm really emotionally fragile today.
Like, really self-absorbed and melodramatic and have a hard time counteracting it. It's not a big problem so much as a discomfort. So, to my question: do you think I'm still in detox? Reason I'm asking is I read a bit about it and most people had it at first and then it went away. For me it seems there was a milder detox at first, got better, then after a week and a half it went worse.
I just hope to God that this is detox and not "intolerance to raw food" or malnutrition because I loved how I felt the first week and a half!
Thanks for your rawesome answers and presence. :heart
