So about a week ago I decided I was going to do Raw Til' 4 - unintentionally. I just ended up going to the grocery store every morning during my free periods and buying fruit for the day, and eating it until dinner with my host family!
It's come so easy you guys...like I literally have absolutely no cravings. In the grocery store you have to walk through a whole row of candy and bread, and I don't even glance at it! It's so liberating...I eat around 5 persimmons for breakfast, and then a bunch of bananas for lunch...lately I've been eating mango because no one's been buying them since they're so expensive, and I can just buy them ripe and ready to eat off the shelf...
Anyways, I'm super happy about this stuff. I've gained a little weight (4lbs) because of...well, past abuse to my body, but like, I'm not even bothered by it, you know? Like, my mood has been so neutral, not negative at all. I have faith in this diet and I'm not worried. Usually I feel just angry/tired/sad all the time and I can sense a noticeable difference in my mood...but hey, that might just be because I'm going home in a week! ;)
I'm going to buy probably two-three bags of dates and eat completely raw next Friday and Saturday, when I'll be flying back to America. Excited!
