Hi Penni,
I got your book and I am starting the 28 day total body reset cleanse tomorrow. My question is kind of silly, but I want to really make sure that I'm doing it right. For the first 7-10 days I do all juice, not smoothies, but juice from my juicer? Also, I noticed that some of your juice recipes have honey and/or oil in them. Should I stay away from those juices or are they okay during this intial time. I am doing this to feel better and lose weight. (20-30 lbs.) Thanks. Have a super day! Heather <3
Thanks Susan,
Will give this a good looking over tomorrow. I am not just a newbie to RFR, I am a newbie to blogging altogether. Never, ever have done it before.
Thank you for this page. I love this site and in the limited time I have to use the computer, this is one of the places I go daily. And yes it is still a maze for me but I am discovering something new, useful and beautiful on a daily basis. This page is especially helpful

Another thing the way you have of welcoming is so very special. Also, the rules are great. I tried to post this about the rules but for some reason it didn't seem to get there. I will keep trying until I get it right. I am grateful for such patience.
Thanks so much for suggesting this blogsite.... I love everything I am learning and the support, I mean, it has been incredible! I really wish I would have found this site a long time ago. Better late than never, right??? It made me so eager to go out and buy groceries last night, I just wanted to start over. I can't tell you how good it feels to actually have someone tell me that I'm doing the right thing but adopting the lifestyle I have and hope to acheive. It like literally almost brought a tear to my eye. I can't wait to spend way more time getting to know the other members of the site and absorbing all of their useful information then applying it to my own life.

Hello.

I started a raw food challenge last summer but only made it two weeks.   I started again five days ago and I'm loving it and doing so much better this time on my own. The difference is simplicity -- I'm eating vegetables and fruits and not so many meals made with recipes. Plain vegetables and plain fruits (not together - see question 1). I have a few questions, though. 

1) Is it only melons of the fruit category that should be eaten alone?  Can I mix any other fruits and eat them at the same time with other fruits or vegetables. I have been eating fruits with fruits and vegetables with vegetables. I haven't even made smoothies this time around (but plan to).

 

2) Is there any way I can be eating too few calories?   For example, today:  breakfast, 2 bananas.  Lunch, salad with spring greens, a few cucumber slices, a couple of olives (4?), a few slices of red pepper, one slice tomato, one carrot.   Snack:  3 spears canteloupe and 2 spears pineapple.  Dinner, few slices cuke, one carrot, 10 olives.  That's it for the day (with lots of spring water).  I'm not sure how many calories it was.  I'm not hungry and don't crave anything else.  I feel fine, and I want to lose a bit of weight (40 lbs or more).

 

I am fairly active all day and practice yoga twice a week (since January). 

 

Please, any advice is appreciated.  is there such a thing as slowing my metabolism from not enough calories? 

 

So much to learn....

For people who abide by food combining, melons should be eaten seperately from all food, including other fruits - I can't combine melons with anything else; it upsets my stomach, and I burp like crazy.

Based on your food journal for the day and the amount of activity you do I would say you are not getting enough calories.....but only you'll know what's right for you. For me, I can eat like this for a few days, but after a week it is not sustaining, and I have to include more juices/smoothies and nuts once and awhile.

Just be mindful of how you feel and keep experimenting to see what works.

Good luck.

Thanks for your response, Peggy. It's good to have someone with experience to ask. It's like I'm starting brand new. Vicky
