Hello girls and boys, my name is Amaia and I'm a 21 years old spanish student. For the last year or so I've been a high carb low fat vegan for the most part, and in the last 6-8 months I've been trying to include more raw foods to my diet.
Now I feel I need to change and I'm going to attempt the raw food thing, my intention is to take a year of transition and during that year try to eat 801010 raw every time I can, but I'll also goint to be focusing on not hating myself if sometimes I have some steamed potatoes for dinner (always trying to keep those as the excepcion).
Do you have any tips for me? I'm trying to absorb as much information as I can to try to make this as best as possible.
Thank you so much,
Do you live with family or alone? Are you able to just empty out all the non raw food from your house?
I live with 2 non-vegan meat addict housemates, so I'm able to empty out my part of the non raw food but not theirs. Anyway most of it is meat and cheese and after so may years as a vegan those things kind of gross me out :)
make sure to have enough ripe fruit and veggies around! so you are not even tempted to eat something else! :) Try to be raw as much as you can but don't be mad at yourself if you ate steamed veggies - you are still transitioning and steamed veggies or quinoa are still healthier than things that other people eat.
And don't force yourself, just be aware what you eat and why you eat it, when you do it consciously you will not crave the unhealthy things.
Thank you very much :)
Move to the tropics.
Yeah, I wish I could haha
Exercise with specific goals. Do some sort of competitive sports if you don't already...preferably something where you train against the CLOCK. Swimming, running, and cycling are awesome. It will help you be in tune with your body so you'll always know whether your body is getting stronger or weaker.
I actually started training in a circus 3 months ago and I'm loving it, maybe if this lifestyle makes my performance por efficient I can become a profesional equilibrist :D
training in a circus? That's so awesome Amailia! :D
send me a link if you got some video of you doing your thing. i'm about to go for a run, got in a short 18 mile bike ride this morning. not enough exercise...
Awesome is that you on the right?
Awesome! please tell us a little more...
