My Raw Food Story
We are actually more than what we eat! We are the total sum of our nature, nurturing, and experiences.
You can get healthy by eating more raw foods, but it may not be the best eating plan for you. There should be a healthy balance in every dietary plan including raw food.
I started eating all raw a year ago, I was successful six months before feeling weak and hungry. I'm talking excessive hunger so, I started adding more organic clean meats to my diet and potatoes occasionally and started feeling better immediately.
It's about finding the right ratio of raw to cooked foods for your particular body. I eat 75% percent raw foods daily. There are some days I don't. In the winter or cooler months when I crave warm foods I skip the daily cold salads and add more warmed raw soups prepared in my Vitamix and stir-fry bean sprouts and other veggies to add to it. Yum Yum!
I started my raw food journey a couple of years ago. I could only do it about ten days at a time before I started giving in to cravings or, suffering from the detoxing and then adding more cooked foods. Before long, I was eating the way I use to, mostly cooked with a salad four to five days per week.
As a result, I felt great a couple of weeks, lost a few pounds and then gain them back, and going back to suffering from Hidradenitis, Leaky Gut, and allergies and food sensitivities. Basic autoimmune dysfunction. Not to mention watching my sugar intake so I could continue avoiding the horrors of diabetes medication.
As I continue on the path of my raw food journey, my health and mental clarity continue to improve daily. I've lost 40 pounds since the holidays (Thanksgiving 2016), and am really enjoying my food!
Since the New Year, I've been sticking to eighty percent raw, and 20 percent cooked. But, I'd revert back to foods that were hard on my body with the cooked foods. Even though I was doing better, I was still suffering from HS again. So, 10 days ago, a week before Thanksgiving, I made a decision to go all raw.
What a profound difference I'm experiencing.
I'm losing a pound a day or more and keeping it off.
The Hidradenitis is getting more manageable and,
I am sleeping better and
Have lost the pain in my joints
And my blood sugars are low enough for me to stay off the horrible
meds that have the same side effects as the autoimmune disease.
Health and Emotions
Our thoughts and feelings and out diet or, the food we eat, affect our emotions in positive and negative ways. This has been scientifically proven. On my journey to wellness, I realized that I was an emotional eater. I ate when I was happy and I ate when I was sad. This is the reason I had to make my eating habits a focus of my emotional recovery.
Being out of balance in one Personal Freedom Pathway, automatically make us unhealthy in all the others, which is why Health Coaching is offered in my Transformational Packages and is an instrumental part of your transformation and personal growth.
For these reasons, As a Personal Development Life Coach, I decided to add healthy eating plans as a focus of my Coaching.
This is not my first time attempting the raw food plan. It's actually my third time trying and I'm happy to report it's going well.
I felt a sense of urgency in changing my eating habits because my health issues were not improving and I don't want to be a statistic and die in my mid fifties from a food related disease. .
It's expected for some races and classes of people to remain in ignorance and not take the time to learn how to eat healthy and to care enough to make such an important changes for themselves and their families .
