Hi, everyone! I have been eating organic for over a year, vegan for about 2 months, but found I was eating too much processed food. It was all organic, but junk nonetheless! I have been thinking about raw food for about a year, when I started doing some cleanses & fasting & such. But I didn't think it was possible, living near Pittsburgh, PA (brrrrr). I have recently read things that made me change my mind. (kinda, but it's really hard to find good organic fruit around here!)
I have not received my 80/10/10 book yet, but I have been researching all I can.
I have been doing 811 for 4 days. I felt really good until today. I got very shaky and had stomach cramps. Today I drank a liter of water, taught a Spinning class for 45 minutes, ate 6 (smallish) oranges for breakfast. Drank another 1-1/2 liters of water and then a pile of strawberries & blueberries for lunch. That's when the stomach cramps and shakiness started. I ate two bananas and plopped down on the couch.
Typically, I have been trying to eat large mono meals of fruit at breakfast & lunch each, (like 6 bananas or oranges) then a small amount of fruit followed by a large romaine & veggie salad with lemon juice & half an avocado for dinner. I will admit that I am still using a little black pepper & organic garlic salt on the salad (although less than I used to!) I'm usually drinking 3-4 liters of water a day, spaced apart from meals. I teach Spinning every weekday morning.
I'm feeling a little better, but wondering what I need to do. (Of course, there's a little voice in my head saying that some toast would help!!
) Someone needs to kill off that person with the little voice!
Any help is appreciated! Hope my book comes soon!
