I feel the best consuming fruit but I find that I need to eat soooo much of it to feel satisfied. I wanna be raw vegan but right now I just feel like it's unsustainable if I need to keep eating 24/7 for the rest of my life. Can anyone help me with this dilemma, or does anyone have any tips I could use? :)
As apple girl said, it does take time to adjust. I have been eating rt4 for the past few months. Food can be like a drug, and you will have a withdrawal experience changing your diet. For example, if you used to have toast with salty vegan butter-like stuff in the morning, then you may have a craving for salt. Bread has a stimulating effect, I have found, and removing it from your diet could be a difficult adjustment. I have recently found that coconut water is one of the most important parts of my diet, especially since I sweat a lot. Sometimes I crack one open mid morning for some sodium and all the other goodness it has (usually saving the meat for later). As for the taking time to eat, it does take a while to eat a bunch of fruit, there's no avoiding that. I got faster at it after some practice. best to try to eat in meals, 3 or 4 a day for most people. Try just eating til you're full and move along with your day, then if you feel like you need something but it's not lunch time yet, bust open a coconut. A couple coconuts makes a big difference for me through the day.
Great topic you posted here. Glad you mentioned it. I'm new to this website so I'm just seeing this & responding.
Hola! Check out my comments I just made on here. It does take much to fruit to be full/satisfied. However, I feel that it's worth it, once we make the decision to be fruitarian and then find a way to sustain that as the alternative is just not worth it. I look at the people who attend fruit festivals on youtube and I say to myself, I desire to have the body and lifestyle that these people have and that the only way to do this is to take the journey and leap of a fruit-based lifestyle. I rather gorge on fruit than gorge on meat and processed foods. As a kid I've always loved fruits and vegetables. Why not feel great about what I eat each day? Why not live a clean, ethical, happy lifestyle?! Why not sing, dance, talk, rhyme, spit, breathe and live fruit all day, every day, for the rest of our natural lives? I believe a life full of fruitarian living is worth the cost and at this point there are alternatives, like freeganism and social services assistance and bartering at co ops or working at markets that serve fruit and vegetables, etc., etc.
