No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Today is the last day! (Not over but it feels like it!)
After 38 days on my feast it's OVER!
I look forward to solid food, but I'm also kind of sad to see it end in a way. I believe I could have easily did 60 days, but I'm good with the goal I achieved.
I learned a great deal on this feast. For one never think you've settled into a grove because your body can cry out for different nutrients that you just so happen to not be supplying to it.
My advice is add those nutrients long before they become an overwhelming primal urge.
Number one of those for me was protein. I noticed that without the addition of some of the other foods I usually eat raw, like peanuts, beans etc... I was deficient in my protein intake and got some good advice on how to correct that. (Thanks to those who provided my protein intervention)
Another thing I'd do different is not rely so much on fruit juicing for energy. I noticed that I started leaning totally towards fruits at one point and had to wean myself back on veggies about 2 weeks in the fast. (This was difficult because the sugars had messed up my taste buds for green juice... which I love.) For the next couple weeks I'll be green juicing more since I'll now be eating.
Lastly login to RFR and rant when you're feeling like cr@p or even if you are feeling great for that matter! It helps to have advice and old fashioned sympathy especially from those who've done it or those who are fasting with you or just those who want to be inspiring.
I'll be starting a new feast in a few weeks, maybe not as long.
I plan to do one more 30 day feast before I turn 50 in February 2013. (It hurts a little to type that!) :) It was my goal to do one 30 day feast before my B-Day, but I deserve at least one more before the big Five Oh hits!
Keep it fantastically Raw people!
