I'm 24 years young. I've felt 24 years too old for too long. I'd say from age 22 to 24 I've noticed a HUGE loss off energy and extreme weight gain, although it was steadily building from about 18 on. All of my life, I was sort of foggy. Some days I would wake up puffy. Only until last year had I noticed that it would depend on what I would eat, or rather I would make the connections of me eating and my face bloating. If I over ate anything, I would get puffy, blotchy, and itchy. First I thought it was just meat triggering these attacks, then wheat.. Then dairy.. Never occurred to me that all of these things were just not necessary in a healthy diet. Around the end of February I had had enough. I was sleeping an excessive amount, unable to wake up to 40 set alarms. When I finally woke up I was puffy, regardless of how many hours of sleep I've gotten. 4, 8, 13.. I was what I call "fuzzy" just very slow response time to everything, very foggy.. forgetting where I'd place things.. and I just felt so heavy. Like it was just such a burden to carry on. I was breaking down, sobbing for no reason during the day, and especially at the end of days. This one specific night something snapped in me. I had a phenomenal day at work, came home to my apartment to grab my laundry to take to my dad's. I put down my phone for a minute to gather things, turned around and couldn't find it anywhere. For a half hour I searched and searched and got more and more aggravated to the point where I was screaming for brief periods, and sobbing for others. I finally found my phone.. In my shoe.. which is weird I only do that if I go to a friends house. I swore (and cursed) up and down that I didn't put it in that f*ing shoe.. (I obviously had).. Exhausted from my freak out, I drove to my dad's and collapsed on the couch sobbing and recited all of my symptoms.. How I was so tired of being tired all the time. I'm a true nature girl at heart, spontaneous, love random adventures when I can.. but my lack of focus and especially energy was killing me and my dreams. The next day at work on my 2 hour break, I decided to scan netflix for an inspiring nature doc and stumbled upon "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead". It obviously inspired me, it's hard not to be after watching it. The very next day I started my 8 day juice fast. I could feel the difference instantly in just the way the juice sat in me, or rather didn't sit in me. There was no "3 day hump" with me.. I took right to it, and loved it. I've fallen off a few times feeling terrible, and every time I went back to raw foods I've felt ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. UNSTOPPABLE even.
