30 Bananas a Day!

I am so frustrated with myself I cant focus. What is my problem? I feel devastated that I cannot follow this. I want this more than pretty much anything else I have ever wanted. I get sick of fruit and I get hungry for anything else....I swear, if the only cooked food left in the world was buried under a pile of dead cats and toilet water I would dig to get to it. I. Am. Tired. Of. It. I dont know what to do.

I agree ... It's hard. What helps me get through it is if I at least give myself permission to eat whatever raw food is around if I'm having cravings, even if it means a little extra avocado, or some extra calories that I don't think I need. I sure wish now that I had taken that approach instead of crashing about two weeks ago. I've been in the dumps since then, but today I'm finally getting back on track.

H.O.L.Y. C.R.A.P

Thank you all so much for this response! I woke up and read your messages and feel much better. I have just never looked at this as a transition but as repeated failure. That seems ridiculous now. I will keep every single word with me. Thank you all again.

I am going back to basics, fruit for breakfast, fruit for lunch, and what ever I want for dinner. One step at a time. Thank you all again. You people kick ass.

Looking back on my process, I wonder if it might have been faster and kinder overall to transition instead of always trying to be 100% 811rv and then not being able to do it yet. I recognize my own voice in the way you're so down on yourself now - that was exactly how I felt. I was so lost and bummed out. But whether you try to go 100% or transition to ultimately be 100% 811rv, I love the advice Jordan and others have given below about being kind to yourself and thinking of it as a process. Good luck and hugs to you xxxooo

For me... 100% fruit does not work.

I seem to really need that 'cubic foot' of salad each evening... after all fruit digests.

This has helped me immensely... in the AM.. I really want fruit again .. !!

Here is a good way of thinking about your situation that has worked for me at times

You're not able to do it because you're not ready for it right now. It's just not meant to be yet. One day you will be ready so all you can do from now until then is make the process as enjoyable as possible. This doesn't mean stop trying to be raw but start focusing on the process instead of just an abstract result you are hoping to achieve. Your goal to be raw probably includes a future of happiness. Stress, unhappiness and feelings of failure do not belong on the journey that will take you there! All of your daily habits create your future.
<3 much love and support

Hi Sarah Beth! I so sympathize with how you're feeling. It took me almost two years of trying before I could make it past a couple weeks of doing 811rv. I would be overcome by cravings for salt, etc, and I just couldn't willpower my way through. I kept going back and forth and feeling miserable. I was so clean that cooked or high fat food felt awful, but still so toxic that 811rv felt unstable and too cleansing.

But I finally picked a month and made it all 30 days, and after that I never looked back. I did a one-day-at-a-time thing during those 30 days, telling myself things like Safeway will always have those salt and pepper kettle chips. You can get them this weekend if you really want them. But just try to make it through tonight right now. Just one more night. You can do it.

It was hard, but it was so worth it. I feel better than I've ever felt in my life before.

Keep on trying. I read somewhere that most people who quit smoking try like 7 or 8 times and fail before they do it for good. You can do it! I know you can. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and try again. Each day you get through is one day closer to being totally 811rv. It is so worth it.
