.... find themselves constantly touching their super soft, baby-bottom skin... in public? Or catching a glimpse of your sunkissed complexion, bright eyes and just flashing a huge smile into the mirror? Staring in awe at the precise balance between bone structure and curvy muscle, thinking: "damn, the human body truly is a masterpiece!" ?
Maybe? Kinda? No? A little bit?
It's not that I consider myself exceptionally good looking or anything, but woah! Lately I just can't help notice how amazing the physical body looks/feels when the interior is in top shape. When all the conditions are right again. Especially when recalling the lifeless, crocodile-skinned, twig-limbed, puffy-eyed days. Throw in the fact that I feel giggly and exuberant for no particular reason- because it is just lovely to be alive- and voilá.

Anyone else in Bananaland madly in love with themselves, or am I just vain and insane? :D Do share
any detox should be very mild, usually there is something to tweak that needs to be done rather than attribute it to detox.
what was your water output, how many times per day were you peeing with vigor?
how many calories were you eating daily?
daily fat intake when you were on raw?
what was your sleep schedule?
thank you so much for your help.
about 3liters a day, and I pee about 10 times in a day.
a little low 2000 calories at first and then about 2500.
less than 10% of fat when I was raw, with cronometer I was more like 5 or 6.
no trouble with sleeping I sleep a lot a least 8hours.
I'm biking walking doing squat.
I'm a nurse so sometimes I have a lot of stress, but I've learned to deal with it and working on it.
your most welcome! :) what were your "detox" symptoms?
being a nurse is like hard labor for most positions! ;) I would definitely think that you would need 3500 or more calories to function.
3500 calories? that's a lot for me, I'm rather petite.
detox symptoms : a little gross but we are family lol : going to the toilet a lot more than usual, lots of stuff coming out from my nose, like I said earlier big pimples on my face, chest and also on my scalp. I had also 2 infections of my ears, water retention, and gas!!!!
check out fellow PK, Raw Fruity Goddess, she is super petite and eats 4000 plus every day, moderately active, massage therapist. When she tried eating less she fell off the wagon.
how was your sleep on 100% raw?
how was your energy levels 100% raw?
you should poop every time you eat or just about.
2 ear infections is not good and can come from a run down immune system from under eating. I would just take it one day at a time and check all your 811 factors very carefully. eating just bananas will really cut down on any bloating. under eating is by far the number one reason folks go back to cooked: The number 1 reason peeps don't stay on a low fat raw vegan lifestyle....
and it is common to need more sleep on 811rv when first staring out. 8 hours is a bare minimum for most people. hope this helps! :) let us know how it goes! :)
Energy level was very good on raw diet, I was used to be always tired, no energy.
I will try to increase my calories intake but that's hard.
now my pimples on my scalp and face are starting to be really itching, I really don't know what's going on with my body...
thanks for your help
sure thing, I would do a few days of banana island and then post here and tell us how its' going. Many people experience quick healing on banana island, even with things that were not responding on 811rv regular! It really gives the digestive system a rest and gives your body extra energy to heal up.
Love this positive post. I'm still new to this lifestyle. But, I'm already feeling much more confident and dare I say...beautiful! I'm back in gym and I have more energy and a joyful disposition. I'm excited about this journey and my future!
Well the first time I went from the SAD diet to fruit after six days my skin was sooooo soft and smooth. I kept feeling it. And then I felt so good. Must have been from all that crap being out of my body. After doing this cleanse I got a most wonderful runners high when I did my first power walk after the week of strawberries. wow I need to feel that again. TIme to clean out the cobwebs.
This made me laugh so much, I LOVE it
