I been 100% raw for almost 2 months before that I was I was vegan and vegetarian I been learning about raw food and 801010 for a year now and I tryed many times to go 100% raw but I would go raw for like 5,6,8,9 days then I would eat something cooked but two months ago I went 100% raw vegan and haven't looked back feeling good but its hard as its winter now her in Britain so I dont get a lot of sun light, plus I noticed that since I went 100% raw vegan I have got some lines or wrinkles on my fingers I think its because of the lack nutrients or something. I been eating mostly bananas,dates,oranges and sometimes greens like salad cucumber,kale and spinach and also broccoli raw. does any one have any advice? I was thinking of getting a blood test in order to find out what's wrong with me. thank you for taking your time to help me.
Any chance it's dehydration? I used to get wrinkly hands & fingers back when I was constantly dehydrated from too much coffee.
My hands and fingers always get more wrinkly in the wintertime. I really think it's due to the weather- cold, dry air. (I've been 100% HCRV for only about 2 weeks now though, so I don't know if following this diet long-term will make my skin smoother in the winter)
I can't imagine why lines on your fingers would be down to lack of nutrients. Most people first start noticing faint lines in their twenties. Could be just down to getting older!
I have a similar problem.
But it usually happens when I am in the kitchen making big mixed salads everyday. All of the constant washing of produce & cleaning of equipment dries out my hands. If I am juicing vegetables, this gets even worse because the juicer is more time consuming to wash.
Right now I am eating mostly smoothies & the problem is going away. My hands are looking better (smoother) everyday because I haven't had my hands much in the water to wash anything. I just toss my bananas & greens & juicy fruit in the blender & give it a quick rinse at the end of each day.
(But to add to Slowpoke's comment, I am drinking more water these days too. Especially since I drink so many smoothies. -- So maybe the problem was a combination of the constant washing & dehydration. -- Although, I'm certain it was from the constant produce washing & kitchen clean up because I noticed the difference immediately when I stopped. That I can say for sure. So that had to be a big part of the problem.)
Thanks everyone I think its due to the lack of water and winter air. :) thanks again.
