8 days :)

For now I don't think I need to update daily like I was, everything has seemed to even out and this thing is pretty reasonable to do.
I watched a video last night on youtube where cravings were discussed on the raw diet. It was said, as long as you're eating enough fruit, everything should disappear. The mistake people usually make is not eating enough. WIth this comes the idea that they are 'denying' themselves foods, but they should really look at it like they can eat whatever they want as long as it's raw! I love the feeling that hey, if I want to eat 2 damn bananas and an apple in one sitting, I can. At first I felt bad about how much I was consuming but now it's no big thing cus tracking it all made me realize how little calories are in everything.
My body is also starting to regulate its hunger levels (whooo) by itself, tried eating a banana last night and felt content after only half, so I put the other half in the freezer for later. Now when I eat SAD, I have the tendency to devour things just so I'll get rid of it, kinda the clean plate syndrome. But my body was so accurate in its hunger needs that even half of a banana seemed unappealing to eat. That's awesome!
I had an avocado this morning for the first time in a long time, almost ate the whole damn thing before I was able to put the rest in my smoothie, SOOOO GOOD. My savory/dense cravings are definitely satiated by avocados and mushrooms, mmmm mmmm. I frickin love raw mushrooms too...
So. Let's see if I can keep this up into next week!
Oh ya, I still haven't really lost any weight, but I feel smaller...not sure what's going on but I figure, I certainly didn't gain 10 lbs overnight, and it's not going to come off like that either.
