I know that one thing that I still find very hard after two years on this diet (and yes, I have been cheating during those 2 years so I am not following the diet to a T) is the idea of not being able to have a good indian curry at a restaurant one night or something else (I mean, I know I can just have a salad... well, maybe not at Indian restaurants, but what if I like the idea of allowing myself one meal out once a month, let say).
I know, I know. I will feel so good I will not want to cheat or I will feel so sick from cheating that I will not want to cheat (actually, I usually do, but I still cheat sometimes...).
So, I am just wondering if most of the long-timers are just never ever eating anything else and sticking with the diet 100 % all the time or if they sometimes have something that is not 80/10/10 once in a blue moon...
I feel like you long-timers are such superhumanes that most times, I feel like I will never measure up...
cheating just creates more cheating as your body never truly cleanses out of these toxins and they are addictive and thats why you crave them.
Freshtival, where do you live? I've never noticed a lack of fresh produce in the winter months and I live in a tiny town in Northern B.C. It's all about your perspective. Food does not keep you warm. Proper clothing, wood fires, and physical activity will keep you warm.
I'm almost finished my webite - 40 Below Fruity, geared towards raw food in cold climates. I'll give you the link when it's all finished and perhaps it can help. I've been 100% raw through 3 canadian winters with no difficulty.
