Bread and rice are poverty foods, with no nutrition. Eat fruits, veggies, and assortment of nuts. All raw. Avoid high starch veggies like potatoes or keep them at a bare minimum. Absolutely NO oil at all, it all bad, even olive oil. Try to keep your diet as close to a monkey in the jungle as you can. [/quote] Yup. I struggled myself with the raw food diet. It was mostly digestive issues and nothing else. With time though, I just thought, ok let me just eat whatever I feel like as long as it's raw. That got me started. Eventually I went all raw, and I started with the Gabriel Cousens plan. It is a long term 9-18 months program to ease you into the ultimate long term raw food diet, which can be done FOR LIFE. It's not a cleanse. It's a lifestyle. once I found that, my digestive issues had mostly to do with caffeine, and easing into a higher fat diet, then I knew this was for me. Metabolically speaking the body just has to adjust to a higher fat diet. Digestively speaking, you'll learn how to eat foods and in which order (food combos) that will make it work. For me.. on a phase 1, a meal is germinated nuts and seeds, before a big bowl of greens (1-2lbs total a day) and a smaller bowl of berries. And flax/chia sprouts 2-3 tblsp twice a day. Instead of the fruits you can also have sprouts of various kinds (not grains). [/quote]
I have had the worse body aches/headaches/fatigue of my life. Every single injury I've ever had is bothering me now. I'm eating a wide variety of raw foods as well...but I don't think I can keep this up. Any advice? BTW, I lost 7.5lbs in 4 days.
