Today I was six days raw, and starting to feel better. The problem was that I was also having a terrible craving. I wanted fatty, salty food. I was good all day, drinking a green smoothy and lunching on some vegetables. I could feel in the pit of my stomach that I was craving something. My mind took over and I realized I wanted a cheese burger and fries. I went looking for some raw food snacks at the store and found a few that I thought would take care of the craving, but after eating them, the craving was still there. I decided that I would give in to the craving, but I was not going to let myself end my raw food journey. I ate it, enjoyed it for a moment, then felt too full and heavy. Now my feet feel swollen and I am super thirsty. My diabetes is not happy.
Tomorrow I plan to start the day with a shot of wheat grass and staying with raw food. I will also remember how I felt after eating the junk food so I will stay strong for the next time I have this unbearable feeling. It is still my goal and plan, for me to stay on raw food so I can overcome my illnesses.
