Cravings and Missions

Sunday, May 12, 2013

I used to be the girl that said, "OMG I need a ribeye slathered in mushrooms and a sweet potato smothered in butter!" It is strange how the better I treat my body, the healthier my cravings are. My meat craving is completely gone and I am not big on dairy anymore either- it kind of grosses me out, which is strange since I used to eat fage greek yogurt and raisins every day for breakfast and would go through a gallon of milk in about 2-3 days by myself. I do like to cook mushrooms and onions-- sauteed in water-- and put them on salad, but I almost get grossed out by meat. I know I have problems with anemia, so instead of craving a steak around a certain time of the month, i now crave leafy greens and raisins. Is this because my body is trying to say it does better absorbing non-heme iron? I dont know, but I love my energy levels and all the changes so I am going to stick with it.
I do know that ever since I did a 10-day juice fast last year a la Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, I can read my body perfectly to a "T". If I eat more than one cup of rice, I literally feel a buzz because of the chemical reactions occuring with my body. It makes me dizzy, like I had a beer. Same with drinking beet juice-- I can easily get "drunk" on it from all the sugar. It's so bad that I dont drive for an hour afer drinking beets, and I wouldnt drink them at all if it wasn't for the wonderful things it does for my body-- and they also taste soooo good (which is weird, because cooked beets make me want to gag!)
I strive to have my meals be at least 51% raw so leukocytosis doesnt occur, and that will make me a healthier Heather! I really feel my new lifestyle will make immense changes to my poor health. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will probably get lung or breast cancer from the radiation I received, if the after effects of chemo doesnt get me first, but I am going ot try my darndest to live a healthy life so that I can live!
