Hey guys. I am doing the raw till 4 lifestyle for 2 months now. Its not lifelong but I wouldn't consider myself a newbie.
As I started this lifestyle I was having a really good body shape. I was happy and felt good. But I need to admit that I was eating not THAT much ( so sometimes I was hungry ) plus I was at the gym for 1 hour a day. Still I had a great body, not perfect but good. The reason I changed to raw till 4 is that I wanted to stop animal cruelty , I wanted a perfect body lifelong and I did not want to be hungry at all.
Now I have the problem that my good shaped body is GONE ! I gained weight ( and I don't mean on the scale I mean when I look into the mirror ) . Legs are about 3 cm thicker, my belly is not shaped and definitely not flat anymore and my face looks rounder. Even my breasts increased in size . In the first month I thought okay that is detox and it will go away again. But I am looking chubbier day by day and I have the same meal plan as free lee has. Nothing less or more.
PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE IF YOU HAVE A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH THIS DIET !!!
I have the same problem. I recently started eating unlimited starches and fruit, at the moment everytime I am in the kitchen I feel like a mad man for eating so much. But I still havent reached a day with 3000 calories eaten. :D
I am gaining weight. I'm very worried about how far up it'll go. But weight is not my primary concern, I mainly do this lifestyle to help me with my depression and anxiety. I guess that's a sacrifice I have to make.
EDIT: I forgot to add : Do you know that it took 1,5 years to get to a state of fitness she is now?
I am not the one who has lived this, but according to Freelee 2 months it's still not that long.
Yes but it is different with Freelee. She was chubby and then wanted to loose weight. I was thin and after 2 months on this lifestyle I do not fit into my pants.
Can it really be healthy when I gamin weight that fast ? I just know that I feel terrible . I sometimes wish I would have never started eating high carb.... and also my energy levels are not higher than before...
are you making sure you drink a LOT of water???? I aim for 4 L daily
