30 Bananas a Day!

Hey guys! How are all my fruity friends doing? :D

So it's day 13 for me. It's the longest that I have ever been raw and I know for a fact that this time, I am going to STAY raw. It has taken me a long time to get here. I've been vegan for months but I've had an extremely difficult time staying away from cooked foods over the last few months. I was addicted to canned foods and bread, rationalizing that they were okay to eat simply because they were vegan (I know, I know). So after many attempts, I'm finally here. I have reached that place in my mind where not one part of me even considers cooked "food" and I understand now that for some people, it does take a while to get to that place. I guess the stress of dealing with my brother's battle with brain cancer played a big role and I feel now after his death (June  22nd of this year) , I can find some mental and emotional rest now that I now he is in peace. 

I'm experiencing nothing but positive results since I've started. Not that I particularly care about weight loss, I have lost 6 lbs since I've started which can only be a good thing, I have so much energy and my sleeping patterns are becoming more regular (I usually sleep during the day and wake up at about 12 am). My skin  and my eyes are starting to take on this healthy glow and I even look more alive. I feel so emotionally balanced and I feel so much more prepared for anything that may come my way, as opposed to being stressed out, depressed and on the verge of either pulling my hair out or killing someone :P

At the moment I am eating what I want when I can, usually averaging at about 2500 calories, sometimes more sometimes a bit less. I've basically been living off of watermelons as I find they're the easiest thing to eat and eat lots of. I'm drinking as much water as I can too, though at the moment I have no desire for it at all. So far, I am feeling amazing :)

I thought I'd share my experience for anyone who is still on their journey to being completely raw just to remind them to take things at their own pace because rushing yourself into such a big change can sometimes make it more difficult for you to stay on track. 

Thanks for reading guys, have a great day!

Thank you very much for your comment rawcelt (love the name by the way!), I really appreciate it :)

Everyone has their hardships, all my brother wanted was health, I should honor him by aspiring to do the same.

It all works out in it's own time, just enjoy life and take every day as it comes. The day when you're fully ready to dedicate yourself to being 100% raw will come when it's meant to. Exactly! You too! :)

Hey Georgina

Thanks for sharing. It's a credit to you that you stayed 801010 through the heartbreak and grief of your brother's illness.

So thrilled you have come out the other side and feeling comfortable eating lfrv. I have days when I can't imagine eating anything cooked; the thought of it repels me. And yet other days when I go too long without eating and my stomach starts demanding cooked starches. I know, that old familiar refrain. As you say, it's all about learning what works and what doesn't. All the best.
