My sense of smell has always been very acute, so I can't attribute that to the diet, however I know tat the body adapts to what we do, like learning to enjoy foods that are lower in fat, salt, sugar, etc. The only change in my senses I have noted lately is a blurring of my vision. I am thinking that it is more related to my continued calorie restriction though.

Drea, I have noticed the same thing!  The more stringent I am about following this diet plan, the more acute my sense of smell becomes.  In effect, I become more turned off by the potency of cooked food.  When my sister cooks dinner, it's a sensory overload.  Even my good ole' homemade hummus seems way too strong!  We are simply become more in-tune to our natural environment!

I can't wait until i start to see and feel those results! First I have to get over my little hump of wanting cooked foods! I am so excited about this journey so thanks for those words of encouragement : )

CHECK THIS OUT::: How do I put this???-->>My sense of smell has INCREASED times -a-billion.  Maybe b/c I'm eating fruits and am being filled with 'sweet goodness' without any additives, salts, flavoring, etc...I could smell odors and cooked foods an ingredients placed in the food to the temth power.

~~I was working out in the park and someone was eating beef and rice and I could have choked.  I was sooo turned off my the gravy and flvoring, not because I looked at it...but b/c the smell it me so strong....

~I'm in my room watching the tube..and my sis brings in 1 chip, 1 CHIP...and I could smell the salt & vinegar to the 10th power on that chip!!!

**I'm gonna say ROCK on to the RAW goodness that i have been eating...perhaps I'm being truly turned away from cooked foods (and the flavoring, spices, etc....) ..

~~My strong sense of smell lets me know that...OH NO ...we don't want that...OH NO , something is wrong with that....

~When I'm out jogging, the odor from the car mufflers tear me to pieces...I have to hold my breath!!

 

***Well praise report is that I'm becoming more ALERT, more clear...more intune with my body, SOMETHING IS happening!!!..ANd I'm AMAZED!!!

 

~~So SALUTE to RAW FOODS and the transformations that take place..HEALTH ROCKS BABY!!!!!!!

 

** if you can relate to this , PLEASE comment...share share...this can't only be me!!!

What kinds of foods did you eat when you were away that lead you to feel this way? As much as I believe that the fresh organic fruits and veggies are the way to go - I can't say I feel any different when I eat some cooked veggies (no oil of course) or gluten-free grains. I have actually been eating air-popped popcorn these last few days and always feel a little nervous about it, but I actually feel better incorporating some of these foods into my diet. I just try to keep them to a minimal percentage of my diet. I am finding that I do better listening to my body than just forcing myself to abide by all the raw-food-rules. I mean what good is it to follow a "perfect diet plan" when your body doesn't function optimally on it?

Am away from home and made the decision to not be pedantic about my diet whilst staying with other people. Starting to really feel it a week later. My mouth tastes disgusting, my tongue is white, I am waking in a sweat at night, I have a very uncomfortable tummy :( Time to give my body a break and more living food!

I'm almost at a month...and I'm weighing whether to continue this journey or take it for the nutritional experience it has been:

"so how's it been....."


1. going to the bathroom more freqeuntly ( 4 times at night (BROKEN SLEEP)

  **more (boo-boo) as well...at times I felt like my stomach was so heavy!!!  I'm about up to hear with Bananas!!!

2.  Food craving/ addictions:  honestly mine are not bad!!!  I said I was giving up rice cakes..and I did for about 4-5 days!!!..Rice Cakes/ small pack Cashews ( i like to CRUNCH)....the only things out of the fruit norm...i would eat!!  I try to be anti-fat..so I won't buy avocado!!!

3.Honestly don't have more energy!!!  I feel sluggish often..but I still do my workouts best I could!

4. I'm always thinking about my next meal...like Ilive in the kkitchen...not cool!

5. Hooray for the added glow in my skin!!! Hooray for soaking up the sun when its out!!!

6. Kudos to learning Mono-meals...and better digestion

~~I try to eliminate weight loss or figure maintenance as a means to dive into fruits..asmuch as I look for better digestion...and finding a nutrition regimen that works for my body  type...I'm still turning front side back side in the mirror!!!!

7, ABS--nice and flat!!!

8. I'm up to at least 1800 calories..major jump from my early 876..mainly BANANAS!!!!

9. Guess what...I'm still supa hungry!!!  Eat MORE FRUIT!!!! ~~~been doing that!! --> ((No)) that makes me hungrier!!!  and then its 10pm....and I feel starved!!!  Not good!

10.  SO I'm weighing this in the balance of what I really want to do!!! Happy for have the exposure, but I'm listening to  my body...and it's telling me..oh-no, we need something else!!

 

**Won't run to get a burger..that's not the food of my choice....no is mash potatoes or pasta!!!  Love Raw food....Love eating fruit all day!!!  ( Honestly, not really....but the folks around me would never be able to guess that!!!

 

**We'll see!!!!!

Haha, funny how my passion is coming out here...a little like DR, no doubt.  FP seems like a nice-enough guy and a promoter of raw foods...but it just rubs me wrong when people criticize others and do the same thing.  He acts like his beliefs and principles are scientifically-verified.  The fact is, that science is used by people to prove what they want to prove.  Science is also still catching up to truth...and still lags behind in many respects.  So, if you want to follow the FP program, go ahead and follow him.  Otherwise, learn to follow yourself.  You'll be happier.  ;)
