No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I've kept my diet fairly even for a year now. raw all day, green juice starts the day and about 75% of the time i eat a cooked meal with the family - generally stir frys sometimes a little fish always lots of veggies (the other times i just stay raw) .
Just in the last couple weeks i have noticed im feeling afternoon faitgue! Gee whats that! I haven't felt that since i went raw nearly 2 years ago. I am still up alot in the night with my little one who is still nursing at night but that hasn't changed. As far as i can tell nothing has changed? So i've been wondering whats going wrong?
I do feel drawn towards some sort of mineral supplement (which i haven't ever tried). I also have noticed that my oils and fats are really low ( just some oil in the dressing on salads). I haven't even really been eating avocado's and maybe once a week i'll have a nut milk based smoothie. I eat intuitively and to be honest i just haven't felt motivated in that direction.
I typically keep my diet very green. Green juice in the morning (nearly a litre) with spirulina, MSM and often acai berry supplements thrown in, and usually a massive green salad at lunch. My diet has been really simple in recent months, juices, smoothies and salads for the most part. snacks are just what i can grab so often some sort of fruit. To be honest i tend to only really feel hungry at lunch time. Am i not getting enough calories perhaps? I don't feel like im hungry and i don't think im dropping alot of weight.
I'm not sure what the issue is, its hard to imagine its some sort detox issue given i don't think i've changed my level of raw in any direction for quite a while and yet even my skin is drier and more blotchy (it is winter here in OZ thou).
Perhaps its not diet related at all but it has that typical 3pm afternoon fatigue feel about it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for directions to try? Does this ring any bells for anyone?
Thanks everyone for reading - i love this community!
