Just Me

Hello,

I was raw for a year and went to a mid place for a few months. I was thinking today...why I went raw and what I loved about it. It made me smart, and also super flexible which is great for yoga. I am going back to raw, except for eggplant at night.

I have thought about it: The reason I loosened up was a therapist told me I had an eating disorder with the raw food thing. Now I feel SO BE IT. Its a really good way to start healing.

Although that is THE TRUTH, its also true that I started going raw when my life was under a lot of pressure. Raw food helped me out. I could do so much more and remember so much more. That is important for me.

Also- I think the thing about it that is E.D. is the excitement and shame cycle that happens. I have gone to yoga for that one and am working to figure it out. smiling smiley

I always like comments; I really look up to some of you, so feel free to communicate as you please. Quesions also.

I've had an ED that involved extremely restricted eating habits, so I can understand the effect food has on a persons mood. I've been recovered for a while now, and it's great. I finally have control of myself.

This is my first day going raw. I'm not going to set any expectations for myself. I'm just gonna see how I feel. So far I love it! I like that whole-food raw vegan meals are so simple to prepare. And I don't like cooking - perfect, lol. smiling smiley

I find it's best to listen you yourself, as you were saying. Only you know how you feel inside. The challenge now is just to be honest with yourself.

Yeah,

I am sure everyone on this site thinks they Don't have an eating disorder. If you think about food this much...uhhu. Yeah. Anyway. you do. Sorry.

Its cool. I am used to the "what do you mean?" about a lot of stuff. Back to me.

I feel like today women are addicted to weight issues just like men are to wierd sex like porno. Its actually addictive thinking. There's a part of you that Will Not Solve The Problem, of your body or weight. I mean other people in other countries Do Not have problems being thin. In fact its not even hot for them! Can you believe it!

Today, I am trying to give up coffee: Let me explain why.
I am raw 75 percent of the time. I do Yoga everyday. Coffee makes me totally sleepless and I am not big meditator yet so I am not ready. Plus I live above my parents office so I get freaked out by them. They could listen to "i feel lonely" and my dad would be like "go find someone off the street." I am like I am not a boy. THat's not how girls are.

On the productive side: I made KILLER CHOCOLATE COVERED PEANUTS. I want anyone with a diabetic night eating issue to try them man! Wow, they make you productive and focused and nuetral. Not sleeply or hurt at all.

FLAX
CHOC PWDR
LIQUID SOY LETHICIN
STEVIA
VELENCIA PEANUT
LITTLE WATER

Add a flavor: almond/orange/ginger: really good.

Bascially I eat totally raw except pm I have 1/2 a steamed eggplant because its not nutrition you want, but the body to be comfortable digesting. Raw food man...and I do eat strait kale, is hard to digest. I know.

So: one thing I notice about people on this site
1. high self-esteem
2. panic: people panic a lot.
