I'm sort of writing this blog to not only introduce myself but to help others out there as well. I was suffering with intense anorexia for about 6 months and felt close to death.
I was only eating around 150 calories every 3 days(per week) during this period. I dropped from a healthy 120 lb woman to an emaciated 105 lbs. People around me were horrified and said really horrible things about my figure and appearance. The worst thing about it was that I couldn't get out of the stress that was causing it. It had nothing to do with body image, it had to do with emotional suffering and feelings of my future.
I have been vegan for as long as I remember, but after this occurrence I felt that regular veganism is just as toxic and damaging to the mind and body as eating meat. Pure raw foods I feel can lead us to something spiritual and enlightening. I wanted to overcome my anorexia, and find out if I could recover yet stay in my controlled mindset (What I feel like my body has to look like, or be like). After becoming raw, WOW I must say I am really impressed with my results. I barely have to exercise and my body is toned with muscle, I look STRONG. Not weak, not FRAIL.
I can't believe it. I feel so healed, so nourished and finally at ease with myself. Even though there is the typical stress I feel so much more relaxed and calm since I can actually eat until I'm full! No more worrying about the toxins in the foods and processed nightmares that would plague my brain until 3 am.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings... nice to meet you all. :)
