The difference between cooked vs raw foods

Well, when I first embarked on a raw foods diet I was a bit upset at the fact that I could only eat wet foods. Now I see it as the only thing I want. I see dry cooked foods now and I can't believe I once loved them. Yeah, of course some of them are still good, but just recently when I had some, not only did they smell so much better than they tasted, but my tongue felt burned by the heat and my mouth felt as though there was cotton in it.

I was not a happy girl. My thirst was insane and…

Cool stuff happening!

Today I've finally found found swiss chard in the city! It was pretty cheap which is good, I thought it'd be sold for much higher price, especially at the place I bought it. So I came home and ate around 100g of those purple leaves . I remembered the taste - I might have eaten it at some restaurant years before. Pretty tasty, wouldn't say I'd eat much of it but cool anyway. And that's where interesting thing happened! I suddenly felt some easiness in my left nostril, like I haven't felt for…

Anniversary and goals - with pic

Today is my tenth anniversary! 

Back then I was 150 pounds which is the lightest I've been in my adult life.  Right now I'm about 180.  So my goal for now is to get back to my wedding weight.  You can see that even then I could stand to lose another 20 pounds or so.  So we shall see what happens after I…

I'm going to be leaving the country tomorrow, and I won't have internet until I come back.

I might not get back on for a while even when I do get back home. 

Need to get my priorities straight. 

Love you all. Really, I do.

My first 811 day (will be updating as the day progresses)

Wake up: noon (highly unusual for me.. Usually I wake up at 5am)

13:00 - 16 strawberries, 5 dates, 1 cup of water, all blended together into sweet soup. I wanted to add some bananas too but the ones my mother purchased are so unripe they don't even peel.

5 Days 100% LFRV'in it! Stream of consciousness...

F*ck, I feel good. Full of energy, full of life. I want to be, please, reminded of this if I ever start even considering giving into my cravings for pizza, and the resulting sleep binge afterwards. I feel fortunate compared to a lot of the folks on this site. Many have had real digestive issues and other crazy diseases they had to battle. I've 'just' been overweight...but it came to enough of a head in my conscience and health...

I'm doing a 30 day trial that I sincerely hope…

Shedding Weight

So I've been on a high fruit diet and it's been an amazing experience thus far. I'm diabetic and at first I was scared to do such a thing. But I learned the proper way to do it. In my experience when I eat mostly all fruits my blood sugars have been within range. I learned that fructose is the only sugar that doesn't need insulin to break into the cell wall.

With this in mind I try to eat only fruits I notice that when i add any vegetable it not only raises my blood sugar but it stays…

P***** off? Eat more fruit.

It's amazing how much hunger affects mood, more so than I ever had realized before I came to this lifestyle. On days when I haven't eaten enough I'll find that I'm usually somewhat depressed to just plain out angry at the world. At the back of my mind, I try and tell myself "Eat more fruit! You'll feel sooo much better, Michelle!" but I hardly ever want to hear that when I'm upset. Sure enough, though, give me a banana smoothie, and 15 minutes later I'm feelin' on top of the world.

Why stick to a high carb diet?


What?  You might ask.  You read correctly.

The human body naturally runs on carbohydrates.  The pancreas secretes insulin and passes the carbs along to…

Seems really difficult for me to stay raw this time.    I have been drinking orange juice in the am's (1/2 gallon)... maybe it's the juice ?    I mean... perhaps all of the fiber I miss leaves me wanting more ??

Raw food combining.

As a relatively new raw-foodie (within the last year) I have let my attention to food combining slide in an effort to ingest sufficient calories.  Now that this experience with eating only raw food is coming into balance I am looking at how to fine tune the diet with balanced food combining.  Here is a link to a site with a nice simple breakdown of raw food combining: …
