Raw Foodism Rocks My Socks

So, for the last week and a half, I’ve been trying a raw food detox (basically what you see here), though I’ve been doing what is considered a ‘standard’ raw food diet, which is comprised of about 80% raw/uncooked foods. Probably closer to 95%, since the only non-raw things I’ve had in this time were roasted chickpeas, soy and linseed rice cakes and a couple of rice crackers. But I digress.

Basically, it’s been totally awesome for me. I haven’t had any gluten-containing products in nearly 2 weeks, which I feel MUCH better for. And, possibly more importantly, it’s really broken my habit of automatically reaching for over-processed foods when I’m hungry. Instead, I now reach for the raw fruit/vegetables, which is a big improvement. I think it’s also helped speed my metabolism back up a bit, though I still don’t think it’s where it ought to be. But as a general rule, I’m less tired, feeling less sick, and certainly in less pain.

Don’t know to what extent I shall carry this over into my everyday life (I’ll probably start slowly reintroducing cooked foods, though raw fruit/vegetables are definitely going to be playing a bigger part in my life from now on), but it’s been a good habit buster, if nothing else. Except for my caffeine addiction. I’m down to only one cup of coffee a day, and I haven’t been drinking any soft drinks (I have been drinking loads of water instead), but I’ll be damned if I’ll give up that one cup.

  5. Raw Food does Rock! I’ve slipped lately but I make sure I start each day with fruit, I make a green smoothie mid-morning, a salad for lunch and then either raw or cooked for dinner.
