For just 3 days into this, I am having a lot of trauma. Is this really for me? Am I doing it right? I am following guidelines set for me. I can see all this happening weeks out, but this soon? Is my body so upset with my choices that it is rebelling fiercely?
It's not going to stop me. I will drink more water, although drinking a quart first thing in the morning is making me sick. I feel water logged, and I can barely get it down. I love water, don't get me wrong, but not this early in the morning. I drink most of mine in the afternoon, through early evening.
I can't wait to start the green smoothies next week, hoping that helps me feel better.
I follow the nutritional guidelines set here on Spark. I am falling a bit in some categories.
I will have to figure that out as I transition to full on raw food. I am doing ok on calories, because I still have 2 reg. meals with my fruit smoothie for breakfast. I love quinoa so I manage a cup of that with dinner, and I am using Olive oil for my main dish. And I have 2 to 4 cups of a vegetable of choice. I am seeing that calcium is a problem, will look at what vegetables have more calcium.
