Support to loose weight after trip
Posted by: cy ()
Date: March 17, 2007 01:27AM

I just got back from a 9 day trip,and I was great. I fell very good,but I gain some weight (dont understand that because I ate a lot of salad,but I got some sweet stuff too.) Well,I'm on a raw "diet" now,meaning only salads and little fruit.
That is difficult because I love sweet treats.
Please,it someone could give me any insight I'd appreciate that.

Hi there welcome and congrats....are you going raw to only lose the weight from trip or are yous tarting your raw journey for life??? were you raw on the trip....it is the stuff added to the greens and the fattening cooked dressings that get people all the time...i tell ya .haha...well you are going to love the raw life...salads without dressing become so yummy!!
goodluck and keep us posted....

hi sachelle. thanks for writing me. i was already raw for 3 months before the trip,since january,and i was a kind of scary to going off,but i ate only raw. i had a lot of pure orange juice,grapefruit,and a lot of raw treats,nuts,and no exercise at all. salads with olive oil.
i made a lot of raw bread to take with me and i ate all of it.

do you eat salads without oil?

i was 8 years vegetarian and was thinking a long ago starting the raw food.
i'm practically raw now,but that was my first trip,and that was a big deal for me.
now i know how to deal with it in restaurants. you have to really check on the menu and salads,because if not you are going to take evrything out of the salad and eat nothing at the end.

i'm not raw because i want to loose weight,but i gain 5 pounds on this trip.
strange. i believe that was because i ate a lot of nuts and raw treats.

hi there.....well i am glad you are doing well and wanting to be raw for life....i was wondering cuz your first post stated for weight loss from trip so i was concerned haha...hmm yeah if you ate some cooked though that could cause the weight gain...but oh well it was a trip you had fun...and now you are back in the real world and trying that is what counts!!!! to answer your question noi don't eat salads with oil on them...i eat plain greens...i don't do nuts,dehydrated items,sugars like agave or dates, sweets, or oils.....the only fat i do do is an occasional avocado or 1/2 of one.......i try to stay away from all that stuff...i like to stick witht he more natural part of it...occasionally like at the raw food potluck here once a month i might have a taste of something with oil or small amount of nuts...just depends!!
well keep up the good work
love sachelle

very interesting. you don't eat nuts,sweets,oils...wow!! how do you do it?
i love sweet stuff,like nuts with dates and cacao,or a banana with cacao on the dehydrater,kind of fruit leather.
i was doing a lot of agave,honey and maple syrup but now i'll eat only dates,apricots and figs.
i drink a lot of green juice and fruit juice.
on my trip i did drink a lot of orange and grapefruit juice, a lot,almost 1/2 gallon a day.
avocado i like it with honey,but now with dates. i don't like it like guacamole,avocado is a dessert for me,or i eat it alone.
i've never been to a raw potluck,must be interesting.
how long have you been raw? do you feel amazingly good?
what makes me keep on it is the amazing feeling.
i'm going to try to do like you,just greens,and some fruits.

Hi there....well to each their own....good luck with going simpler...it is a transition thing dn't jump into it if you are used to more things that are heavier so that you slip and go back to cooked you know??? so anyways that is awesome you have gone down to just dates figs and what not......oh potlucks are great i love them.....my favorite one is the one by my house herei n san diego...but the carlsbad one was nice as well....it was good to see prism there though....she is so sweet and so beautiful inside and out....it was just a pleasure meeting her...
hmm well good luck with everything and take care you are doing awesome
love sachelle
xoxoxoxoxo
P.S. i have been raw for 7 weeks now and i do feel amazing i love it....it really is a great thing and i will never not be raw...

Hi sachelle,thanks again. i'll do that,i'll go slowlly to the simple food.
i believe that i'll stay raw also because it is an amazing feeling.
here in westchester,ny,i dont know any potluck,but maybe one day i'll meet some raw people here. i'm new on this raw business,but i feel that it has been forever.
i dont have any cooked food cravings anymore,but i still like a lot of nuts and sweets raw stuff.
one day i'll get there,on simple kind of eating.
thanks a lot
love cy

Hi Sachelle...my day yesterday went fine.I'm doing a lot of smoothies with greens and fruits.I might do a green and fruit juice fasting for a week.Just thinking for now.Today I had another fruit smoothie with coconut butter for breakfast,and I tell you, that was delicious!!!! I'm completly ok with this diet,and I'm feeling great,but a great feeling with peace,not excitment,but peace and calm.I like that much better because I am very energetic. I did return to my 1 hour walking evry day,and I will do some yoga today (it's been 2 months that I completly left the yoga,oh my !!!! ).
You know,that trip taught me a lot,that I can take care of myself and I don't need to be afraid of eating bad stuff.My primary thinking is if you feel good it is because you are in the right path.If your body feel good,you are calm,your mind is clear,it's because you are doing well.
Thanks a lot for asking,you are very, very sweet.And how are you?How was your day ?And how are you feeling today? Hope evrything is wonderful with you.
love and xxxxxxxxoooooo

HI there CY well congrats on going back to your daily walking and yoga that is amazing...i love yoga it makes me feel so calm and serene...it is wonderful....do you do it at home to a video or go to a studio or gym????
Hmm i love green smoothies haha...you are getting your greens in a unusual tasting smoothie...although ihaven't had one in about 2 days i don't know why...i have been having all my greens in kale at the place down the road from me....like 6 cups a day haha so i think i am getting plenty of greens in huh??? well my day is good so far.....woke up.....ate some zucchini and made up raw sauce that was only good on the zucchini haha...so i will have to decide what to do with the rest of it.....and i am getting ready to go pick up a bowl of kale to take to work with me...maybe i will skip it today though....and save my money and get one tomorrow......well have a wonderful rest of the day!! hope all is well....take care and talk with you soon!
love sachelle

Hi Sachelle. I do Yoga with a video,or sometimes with Priscila Patrick from the TV channel 25,NJ. It's a free channel that has a lot of public programs,and she is awsome. But sometimes I do alone.A long time I don't go to a studio.I prefer to be by myself.I walk on a treadmill too.I love tredmill.I don't know anybody else that likes it,but I do.For me is a meditation.I walk and meditate.

Did you make the sauce with tomatoes? You can use it with the kale.
If you take the kale's spine,the thing in the middle,I don't know the name,and stay only with the leaves,you can put some celtic sea salt and tomatoes.Delicious!!! I do this and love it.

I will do celery and cucumber juice evry day now for detox.
Talk with you soon too,
Love and xxxxxxxoooooo,
Cy

Hi Taylor, great that you like to walk too. I am addicted too,I have to walk evry day or I feel very deprived. I do stretch and do yoga,but I have to come back
with my normal yoga hours. Latelly I'm doing very little of yoga and stretching.
I do make my bread, (flax seed + sunflower seed+ onion or zucchini and dehydrator)very good,but latelly I'm only on salads,green and fruit juices for weight lost.
I want to loose 5 pounds,just because I ate a lot on my trip.I brought so many raw breads,raw sweets and treats and they were so good that I ate evrything not thinking about anything. So,now it's just greens,majority. I'm ok with my weigh,I'm 5'7' and 135 pounds (140 now )or 138 since yesterday. I'm feeling ok,but I really want to loose that excess weigh,or even get to 130 pounds. That would be my limit,130 pounds would be good forever. I'm doing evrything slowlly now.Before I would be crazy,but now I don't care because I feel that I'm on a healthy path. Even being a vegetarian I've never felt so good as I'm feeling now.Amazing.Thanks a lot for your support.And you too Sachelle. Love,Cy

Taylor, I do apple,pear and flax seed on the blender,than I sprinkle walnuts and sometimes raisins for my breakfast. This is a wonderful way to get a lot of flax.Or you could just make an apple sauce and flax.I love flax seed too. Your cookie looks good...hummm. I try to juice evryday because I love the sensation that it does.And a natural juice is the best thing in the worl! Good that you are doing fine too.I'll try to make your bread for next week.Now I have my flax crackers for tomorrow with tomatoes ...hummmm.I'm looking very much forward to it.
hugs and xxxxoooooo,cy

But my flax crackers and my hummus were amazing !!! Also,I ate the crackers with avocado this morming and that alone was the most delicious ever !
Yes,when we follw our body we don't get wrong,umbelievable.

Thanks a lot Sachelle and Taylor.Great support you give me.

Thanks Sachelle.It is what I'm doing now,listening to my body.I was on the post office and it has a pizza place near it,and the smell was amazing,than the first thing that I did was imagine a huge salad bowl with a lot of olives,tomatoes,sprouts,.....huge,and that was wonderful because I got home and had the salad with evrything and a veggie drink,celery,cucumber,apple,lemon,and a little wheat grass. Just great!!!
I believe that our imagination help us to get off trouble (cooked food).Just imagine a wonderful raw dish and evrything else fades out.
Much love xxxxOOOOOO
