Those of you who have known me for a few years, know Im flighty with my food choices. LOL
Those of you who too know I have tried to do a raw food diet (vegan/vegetarian style) a few times, only to fail miserably, usually when I get pregnant and crave KFC's gravy of all things!!!! And a Big Mac....mmmmmmm Big Macs (I need a towel)
But I have been running for weeks now, trying to watch what I eat and none of this weight is coming off. It hasnt really gotten me discouraged but kinda frustrated when I try something on and say "man I thought this would look better today!" LOL
Today I was talking with someone about this and they told me how they do a raw diet. Having tried it a few times before and actually enjoying it, I got excited that I really want to try it again.
Something else, Im also have a sensitivity to a lot of vegetables and fruits when they are raw. Carrots, celery, peaches, pears, apples, plums... is that it? I think thats it. My mouth and throat get itchy. Its an intollerance to a protien that is in these fruits and veggies (and in birch tree's too apparently..so I cant eat birch trees LOL), but when these fruits and veggies are cooked the protien is broken down and I can eat them!
And Im prone to canker sores so when I eat something like pineapple then my mouth breaks out very badly. (Thank goodness for Oil of Oregano)
I think this is a big reason as to why I also give up easily on the diet because I cant eat as much of a variety of foods as I could
Now, I have three children and a husband who loooove their ground beef and chicken. So I know that I may not be able to go completly raw right away, we usually only buy enough food for meals and that way we cut on costs for food. If I have to start buying different foods for myself, financially its probably not going to work right away until we work out a balance.
But I am pumped about it. Even if I go half way there, it will make a difference I am sure.
Now if I can just get as pumped about not taking loads of cream in my coffee!!!
