No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Okay. Here goes. Nothing but honesty here. I blew it - sort of. I ended up eating meat for supper with lots of salad after having lots of fruit earlier in the day. I feel I am going nuts. All I can figure out here is that it must have been the fruit that made me so hungry most of the afternoon. Nothing satisfied me after that and I had quite a bit of salad with a few seeds and nuts and some oily dressing. And I didn't overeat. This morning I felt awful - just awful. My skin is so itchy. I feel like it is an allergic reaction to the fruit. I know that two health practitioners told me to avoid strawberries and oranges, neither of which I had yesterday. But I did have lots of pineapple. I am also starting to feel pain in my hands again. And I am tired all over and even felt dizzy while I was freezing all the fruit.
I'm throwing up my hands here and have decided to give up the effort to go raw and switch to low carb - "The New Atkins For a New You" and to try my very best to stick with it. I don't know what else to say. I feel so badly about this. I figure that I must have wrecked my metabolism over a long period of time - since I was 12 - by dieting and binging - back and forth, back and forth. That's what my mind feels like this morning - like it's in a frenzy. Can't stand this feeling anymore. Maybe, from time-to-time I'll blog about how it's going. I know a few here opted for a lower carb way of eating and that they included meat etc. And I have quite a few friends who have done extremely well this winter on low carb under their doctor's supervision - they all have the same doctor who monitors them closely.
So I'm going to sign off from here for now. I am sorry. I still think this is a wonderful site for discussions about healthy eating - tons of information here and lots of fabulous recipes and photos.
