30 Bananas a Day!

Hello Everyone! I figured I should introduce myself so that I can more comfortably immerse myself into this way of life. I have been vegetarian on and off for 2 years and *mostly* vegetarian since January of this year. every now and then when I'm having a bad digestion week I would revert to fruits and veggies only so this has been a part of my life for a while. In the past the only thing stopping me from naturally doing the veggies and fruits thing was the misconception that it wasn't healthy. 

But as soon as I saw this site I started on 100% raw and felt amazing and barely craved anything for 5 days. Usually it was because I had a long day and by the time I was home I was too tired to cook anything so I would just grab lettuce or bananas. Day 6 came and I had popcorn (uhoh!). Ok fine. Next day I was in pain! but started a new day raw. Drank water and avoided food early in the day. Its funny when I was eating the popcorn it tasted too salty and off. It did not taste good at all and I've dieted a lot in the past and when I cheated it used to be so satisfying. After cheating I would feel content. Now when I cheat I feel like crap and it had only been 5 days. Day 7 I was good until I cheated again with cooked Tofu and bread. ARGH. Day 8 and 9 were good cept for the abdominal PAIN. 

I get migraines often and doing this has helped me not feel like crap in the morning. But I still am indulging even though I can feel the effects so early in the "diet" and so quickly after cheating. I've seen a few threads with similar issues as mine but I figured I would share for a bit of mental help on my part. Keep it out in the open I suppose.

To start a new day 100% :)

I was like this too!  But over time, you learn from your slip ups and eventually you wont crave cooked food anymore because it will just remind you of how awful you felt (physically and mentally) afterwards.. my only advice is mistakes are good as long as you learn from them.  I went back to cooked food during the winter due to the cold and I just had to have something warm to warm me up.  But now I am back on raw and really have never looked back.  You still have a long way to go on your raw food journey (and so do I) but don't give up!  Its only human! I wish you luck <3 

Thank you! Yes hopefully I am learning from my mistakes.
