Raw Food trial: Day 16

Detox and Weight

Today i am up 1.5 pounds from yesterday.  Putting at my total weight loss at exactly 10 pounds in 16 days.  That is not too shabby at all.
I still have a white tongue and my mouth still feels fuzzy sometimes.
I am sleeping well, but still not remembering my dreams.  This is very odd since i usually remember them.  My mind is still very unfocused so maybe that is part of the reason i am not remembering my dreams.
I find that my energy is pretty even all day long.  I am not getting suddenly sleepy in the middle of the day or crashing right after dinner.  I wake up and have as much energy as i do an hour or 12 later.  When i get tired, it is very sudden.  I go from moving around and having tons of energy to being the walking dead on feet.
Today, i have really been craving beans and rice wrapped in a fresh hot tortilla with tomatoes and a yummy salsa.  It has been on my mind frequently today. I was also craving like crazy tomatoes today (i had 6 of them today), so i wonder if wanting beans and rice (where i eat 2 tomatoes typically) is symptom of my tomato craving.

Food

Except for my wild lust after tomatoes, today i was not very hungry most of the day.  I woke up at 8am, and did not get hungry until 12:30.  I had a banana smoothie with mesquite powder, maca powder, agarve, and ice.  It was ok.  i found i really missed the greens in it.

About an hour after i finished that, i had a tomato and avocado plate with a cucumber.

I then went and ran errands and my energy was great for the whole day.  I got home after 7.  I had some cantaloupe.  Then an avocado tomato plate.  This is when i noticed my tomato craving.  Normally, i eat this and i feel great.  This time, i felt great, but i really wanted more tomato.  So i made myself another tomato.  Then another.  Then, i finally felt full.  Weirdly, about an hour later, i got a strong craving for grapes around 9:30.  I dont typically eat that late, but i had a bowl of grapes, and it felt wonderful.

Day 16

I’m so tired and have so little focus at the moment that I can’t even remember what I wrote yesterday.

I didn’t have any smoothies today.  I did increase the amount of oranges I ate and got to have pineapple for the first time since we started this.  My stomach was okay with this, but I did miss my smoothie.

I’m still seeing benefits continue to show: weight loss, clearer skin, etc.  This is fine by me.  I am still looking for patterns between what I eat and how I feel.

I think it is past my bed time, but I shall leave you with today’s joke:

A mushroom walks into a bar and goes to the counter to get a drink.  The bartender quickly informs him that they do not serve mushrooms.  To this the mushroom replied, “Oh, come on.  I’m a fungi.”

Until next time,

Lindsay
