For a long time I have followed Christina at Fully Raw. I am not a dieter, but I thought I would try this because I LOVE fruit and vegetables. The main reason I don’t eat just fruit and vegetables is the price, the amount of time it takes to actually eat all the food, and the traditions of eating other foods.
So I went to produce junction where they had fruit and vegetables even in the winter at a good price. My husband was working so I thought it would be a great time to get started.
But I did learn some things in the 4 days that I want to share. I learned I really do love fruit and vegetables. But I do love heated vegetables. I did feel good but had trouble eating enough calories without feeling really full. My skin became very sensitive in a good way at the end of day 4. My poo did not stay solid at day 4 but quickly returned. This was probably because I ate more fruit than vegetables. I learned that I like figs and that I will try them in more things. I also learned that one container of figs at Weis is $7! But they are a great sweetener in smoothies.
I will definitely add more fruit and vegetables in my normal diet because of these days. I also know I need to eat much larger quantities of these things to make it a meal. For example a meal of bananas is 8-10 bananas to get 800 calories.
