Raw Food Trial: Day 29

Detox and Weight

Today i am down 1.5 pounds from yesterday for a total lose of 14.5 pounds since the start of this trial.

I continued to be very hungry and thirsty today.  And felt more like snacking then eating an actual meal.  I wonder if this is because i am not eating as much fat these last couple days.  I had few nuts, only a bit of avocado and little oil/tahini.

I am continuing to keep this short since this has been alot of status quo, however, i am working on a larger update for the day after the end of the trial.

Food

For breakfast i had a strawberry banana smoothie.
Lunch was about an hour after the smoothies.  I had zucchini bread with hummus, cucumber, tomato, and avocado.
About 4 hours later, i started snacking and did that that for the rest of the night.  I had 3 apples, 1 orange, 1/3 of a raw cookie, 2 tomatoes, 1 date.

I spent very little time in the kitchen today and that was a very nice change.  I needed the break.

Day 29

It’s so hard to believe that tomorrow is that last day of the trial, but at the same time it’s not.  While that may sound strange this month feels like it has taken longer than usual to pass and it will be interesting being able to eat anything I want without having to stop and ask myself if it is raw.

The funny thing is that in some ways I don’t feel like my detox every really finished running it’s course.  I’m still itchy and sometimes have trouble focusing.  I’m curious if maybe it’s not raw food that is causing it, but if it is, it makes me wonder further as to how many toxins were in my system that is taking this long to clear them.

Today’s meals were scattered and I snacked through most of the day…like I said before, snacking throughout the day is a common habit for me, raw food or otherwise.  I had more smoothies today and I noticed something interesting.  There is an ingredient that is put into the smoothies, I don’t know what (I don’t put it in my smoothies), that hits part of my tongue weird.  When it hits the back of my tongue I can’t taste it…it’s very strange.

For today’s joke, funny points to ponder:

1. Only in America……can a pizza get to your house faster than an
ambulance.
2. Only in America……are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.
3. Only in America……do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to
the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people
can buy cigarettes at the front.
4. Only in America……do people
order double cheeseburgers, large
fries, and a diet coke.
5. Only in America……do banks leave both doors open and then chain
the pens to the counters.
6. Only in America……do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in
the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
7. Only in America……do we use answering machines to screen calls and
then have call waiting so we won’t miss a call from someone we didn’t
want to talk to in the first place.
8. Only in America……do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in
packages of eight.
9. Only in America……do we use the word ‘politics’ to describe the
process so well: ‘Poli’ in Latin meaning ‘many’ and ‘tics’ meaning
‘bloodsucking creatures’.
10. Only in America……do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille
lettering.

Cheers,

Lindsay
