Hey everyone. I’ve just had a huge realization.. if I’m right..
I have been 99.9% raw vegan since August 10, 2009! In that time I have released 8 lbs!
During the past month I’ve been doing great with my raw food and mostly I have had green smoothies almost every day. Well I also hadn’t gone to the bulk place for nuts so I haven’t had too many nuts. I had some on had but mostly almonds and sunflower seeds. Last week I went and bought cashews and macadamia nuts. And I’ve been snacking on those and not drinking my super food green smoothies.
Now I’m craving chips and fried food! And I have a big bag I bought for the kids. It’s taking all the will power I have not to break into that bag! I just realized… maybe because I’m not eating as much and I’m not drinking my super duper super food green smoothies that I’m maybe craving some other nutrients that I’m not getting. And the old stand by past favourite snack is the first thing that comes up. Even now after this realization I still want to go grab that bag of chips!!! Nooooo… This is so hard and I’m doing so well. I need to be healthy. I am a raw foodist.
I’m going to make a green smoothie!!!

OMG ok after all that I did go make a green smoothie. It was great. And I wasn’t going to come back and post this because I’m embarrassed at what I did but I have to let people know!! I left the chips alone.. But 1/2 hour ago I ate 4 cheese sticks, you know the breaded melted kind. not raw not even vegan. Well Guess what after a month raw my body does NOT like those. I have a headache I feel dizzy and nauseous and my tummy is upset. I used to eat 8 of those at a time. But never noticed how bad I felt because I was feeling bad all the time. For me this was a good thing. I know for sure I don’t ever want to eat that crap again. I’m still a raw vegan even though I slipped.
Well good news. I have a friend that is going to go walk with me in the mornings. He wants to be healthy too. Though not a raw foodist he does juice.
