Raw Food Roundup

Ok, I officially LOVE raw food. I started eating raw about five weeks ago, and have been 99% raw since (my trespasses? a tiny brownie, a few sprouted grain english muffins, and a stupid eggplant pizza). Let's do the math on this baby :

First I ate 100% of whatever I wanted. I loved fried foods, desserts, and pizza. Thanks to miraculous metabolism, I never gained too much weight. Then I read Fantastic Voyage : Live Long Enough to Live Forever, hacked away at my diet, and cut out probably 70% of the foods I used to eat. Later I researched more and cut out 90% of those foods, leaving me eating about 7% of what I initially ate. I wrote a book called The Skinny Snob about that. Going raw eliminated at least 70% of those foods, so now I'm down to about 2-3% of the foods I ate a year ago. Based on my daily diet I would consider that wholly accurate.

Now... that is a wild change. Especially coming from me. I would constantly mock anyone trying to go on a diet and explain that you should just eat whatever you wanted. No amount of logic would get me to change. What did get me to change was my inclination to try things for 7 or 30 days, and the accompanying drastic results.

May 6: Flavorless Challenge

On Leo Habits

Read about my challenge here.

Super hungry this morning. I ended up eating raw broccoli, but that didn’t work, so I had an unflavored plant protein shake and that helped. Very tempted to eat fruit or drink Eva’s coffee with creamer.

We were out for a few hours doing errands and I didn’t plan my eating well, so I was super hungry when we got home. I had another unflavored protein shake, then some seitan. Not exciting, but it definitely fulfilled the hunger.

Later I got really hungry, so I ate more seitan, then potatoes, then flaxseed oil. Finally, I ate a carrot, and that did the trick.

This was one of my hardest days, because of the hunger. I think I have to give in to the hunger and eat one of my boring foods (or maybe a carrot) or this challenge will be too difficult for me.
