@@@ DON:::..hmmm why do you say ..or suggest rather that I'm not living in accordance with your body's requirements!!!       (Did my sense of smell post lead you to that conclusion?)

I've noticed a heightened sense of smell as well.  Cooked foods are the worst of course.  The other day my husband was eating gummy bears.  When I walked in the room, I could immediately smell the chemicals!  So weird.  Also just  walking through a grocery store turns my stomach and makes me gag. 

I would love to see a change in my eyesight eventually!  That would be great!

I cannot say yet that I no longer need glasses, however, I am noticing some ongoing changes in my vision to the point where I know I have to get new lenses.  I feel this is to the good.

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.
Comment by Honeydew Gonne on October 30, 2011 at 11:22am
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?
