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.

Eating Better

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

I've been tracking everything I eat lately, and putting some calorie numbers on them.

6 November Indian food: Rice, chicken, curry, vegetables.. Small banana. 900 cal.

9 November Lunch: Big portion rice, curry sauce, chicken. 1000 cal.

12 November Lunch: Two kinds of vegetables (one in very light curry), piece of chicken. 400 cal.

This is kind of crazy. The only difference is, I ordered more vegetables and didn't get any curry on the chicken.
