I'm feeling really emotional lately. I ate some cooked food the day before yesterday. Is it possible that only a sandwich would cause me to detox? I got in a fight with my boyfriend and havent been speaking to him since yesterday. I've just been crying all day! Still stuffing bananas down my throat like mad though :) making sure I get my carbs. Is this normal?
haha no! Definitely not. I had cheated a few times before that but this last little slip up made me realize I wanted to be fully raw. I was actually happy it happened and totally psyched to go all the way. The emotions have been coming out of nowhere
Sounds like nothing unusual...everytime i go off track 811 my relationships go Haywire... like the smallest things piss you off and u end up losing face and making moreso a fool of yourself than was otherwise posible on 811 regardless of whethter the other person acted poorly or not imo. Things always work themselves out or dissolve as if theyve never happened as long as i compensate by (say a watermelon mono day, or drinking extra extra water, or a long hike) to hydrate and oxygenate the crud and help speed up the detox of it...so ya doing whatever i can to distance myself from the negative effects of bad food seems to have its related effect on my mind/relationship tension. Hope it all works out
I think it is OK. Reactions happen to me everytime I slip from LFRV. I think that after a while on LFRV we become sensitive to anything harmful to us so that we react to it in such a strong way. But this reaction is normal and it only shows us how negative some things are - I remember how I had one small shot after 6 months of clean eating ... It was absolutely terrible, I totally lost my well being afterwards and I could not recognize myself ...
When you stop eating the cooked food which numbs you, people can start to detox emotionally aswell....
Roxalind Gruben(Dr Grahams wife) did a great video on eating and emotions which I found very helpful. There are others she also did on social and emotional eating on youtube.
I must say I also feel alot more impatient, engry, frustrated after eating cooked food- you really start to see how food effects your mind aswell... no wonder the world is filled with miserable/angry people (-:
meditation and staying carbed up has been a god send (-:
Great vid! Although im aware of foods potential to numb emotions and the idea that you have to learn to deal with and face more and more of your own emotions as your diet gets cleaner and your energy is freed up to fully feel your emotions, i find the reverse is true....Rosalind talks about old childhood feelings of abondonment and anger progressively arising to be dealt with the further you advance up the dietary continuum towards lfrv...but in my experience, at least now having experienced the potential for peace and harmony in all aspects of life as a result of eating this way, the further i regress back towards sad...the angrier and more intolerant i get. N Viktoriyas sandwich seems to have been a factor in her recent ordeal which is also the opposite of how Rosalind explains the continuum...her explanation makes perfect sense, i just dont understand how the opposite reaction fits into the picture...
This reminds me of one of Yoda's quotes...
"Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose."
Meaning: When you let go of fear, especially if you fear to loose possessions or people, then your soul becomes free and unburdened. Life becomes peaceful, calm and joyful for you are no longer driving yourself crazy with worry about loosing it.
Yes it is normal. Every girl I dated is crazy like this.
I ate some cooked and i feel the same. Actually i feel like after vine and on hangover. But you had this time gap, but i also feel sad. Maybe there are other reasons.
Make sure you're getting enough early nights, water etc with all the yoga training you are doing.
Passion is normal in any relationship. Its when we dwell on the negativity that things can erode. Its normal to have some outbursts. Just regain composure and continue.
Any man with half a brain will understand that being with a woman is like navigating the ocean. Storms will happen and you just have to roll with the swell. Thinking we can stop the storms is the first mistake ie: If I can just navigate thru this storm it will never happen again!'.
