I figured I should let you know that I’ve recently been having a couple non-raw things. I made this decision after months of deliberating. Finally, recent significant weight gain despite being LFRV for almost three years pushed me over the edge. It didn’t seem like the diet was doing anything for me. I’m still mostly raw, but the past couple of days I’ve been having cooked lunches. I’ll probably go back to being 100% raw when I go back to Hawaii (maybe, maybe not), but I think long-term, I will be a mostly-high-carb vegan.
I don’t blame the diet, I blame my body. I just think that my body type is going to do its “gain weight unless you exercise 50 hours a day” thing no matter what I’m eating, and I haven’t seen any other results, so I don’t see much reason to stick with it. But if you are still interested in the diet, I would encourage you to go for it!
I think I’m going to stop posting on this blog, since I don’t want to represent a false image to you guys. But I’ll still be around, and if you have any questions about the diet, feel free to ask.
Who says eating 12 apples isn’t normal? :)
Gary L. Francione can fuck off, right now. I’m so angry about this that I can’t even write an eloquent response.
Who the fuck is he to say what is “overeating”, or “crap”? Everyone requires different caloric intakes, based on activity and physical size, and “crap” is an inherently subjective term. “Crap” to a raw foodist might mean vegan pizza, but to a standard dieter, vegan pizza would be so “healthy” that they wouldn’t even touch it. A form of violence to oneself? REALLY? I would actually argue that consistently undereating because you’re afraid of causing “violence to yourself” actually causes more violence to yourself than overeating vegan food ever would. ARGH. People like this are the reason vegans get a bad rap.

SO making these.
I HAVE HOT PINK HAIR AHHHHHHH I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!
Nope, not too much, though “too much” differs from person to person. The reason you’re feeling so bloated could be because you ate so many types of foods, in so many different categories (subacid, acid, vegetable, etc) together. But it also might be because you’re not used to eating that much quantity. Either way, sticking mostly with monomeals of watery, sugary fruits (mangoes are great - they never make me feel bloaty) and simple salads at first will be best.
And don’t feel like you have to eat a certain quantity of food at each meal, even if it makes you feel bad. At first, it’s hard to eat enough calories because of the bulk, and that’s okay. Eventually your body will adjust and allow you to eat more at each meal. Until then, I’d suggest eating calorie-dense finger foods, like dates, as snacks throughout the day, and having more watery foods at mealtimes to encourage your stomach to stretch (though only in elasticity, not in actual size).
Hope that helps!
Sigh. Mold is stupid.
Plus local smallish AMAZING tomatoes for $1.69 a pound.
My co-op is awesome.
Rotten watermelons are the worst-smelling things ever.
Think barf x 45. And they’re soft.
