Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I had great success with my transition week into raw foods! I never expected to lose as much weight as I did. I have lost 8.4 pounds as of this morning. It found it very easy to eat raw foods and I really loved everything I ate. I kept it simple. Nothing complicated.
Changes: My blood pressure readings are gradually getting better. I did feel pretty bad on day 3. I had louder than usual ringing in my ears, a funny taste in my mouth, and I felt sleepy and mildly nauseous all day. The next day I felt much better. I noticed toward the end of the week having more energy and my hunger had subsided quite a bit. I felt like I was in control, not the hunger. I liked that very much. Also, I have been walking a little every day (not the norm), usually only 30 minutes or less. I am sure I should add some resistance exercise or weights as not to lose muscle mass. One of the best things to happen was my husband said I am in a better mood. Ha! I felt so good last Friday that I had my shoulder-length hair style of 10 years cut into a short cut!
This week: I started my juice fast today. I bought a juicer yesterday so I could start today. This morning I made a simple apple, carrot, celery juice. It was very good. This afternoon I made green juice with kale, apple, cucumber celery, lemon, carrots. I was pleasantly surprised. It was really good! I cut it with some water after reading that it can make you feel a little sick until you get used to it, but I did not dilute it because of the taste. I have to say though, right now I am soooo hungry! However, I am resolved to power through it. I am sure it will pass.
Have a great week!
