A Raw Diet

I know it’s been a week- I’ve been trying to find motivation to write and I just can’t seem to find any. I’m worn out. But here I am… I was down again last week which is awesome although I am getting frustrated because every day that I have weighed myself since then I have gained weight and I don’t know why. I’m exercising more, I’m counting my calories… oh well, slow and steady.

I’ve been reading a lot lately about the raw diet and how it’s supposed to be amazing for you- healthy, nutritious, aids weight loss, and makes you feel overall, just better. I did a lot of research this weekend on potential recipes, foods, pros and cons… and I saw that people sometimes follow the raw diet anywhere from 3 to 30 days… and of course, there are those who live on it. I don’t know if I could ever live on a raw diet, but I can at least try it. So, that’s what I’m going to do. For starters, I will follow it from Monday morning until Friday evening (Andrew and I are going out to dinner for my birthday). These 4.5 days will just be a test to see if I can actually do it without cheating. I hope to try to follow it again in the near future.

Today I went to Whole Foods and bought all sorts of fresh produce- veggies, fruits, and hemp seeds. We already have a bunch of vitamins that we’re finishing up as well as flax seeds, so hopefully we’re good to go. My meal plan will be as follows: Breakfasts- smoothies and fruit; Lunches- Salad; Dinners- Tomato and Avocado Stacks, Zucchini pasta with pesto, pad thai, and lettuce tacos. They all sound good enough :0)

Anyway, I’ll try to update how it’s going, what it’s like, if I feel any different, etc. So long for now!
