So I'm not going to lie the first few days were rough! Bad headaches, tiredness, restless sleeps, you name it. I have been a whole food plant based vegan for many years, but was addicted to cooked dinners. Yummy steamed veggies, baked potatoes. . .ok so you get it. During the day I am fine on raw but at night, a whole different story. I have dabbled in fully raw a few times but my triggers would flair up. . .caving salty organic seaweed, craving crunchy baked veggies and I would start having these detox symptoms and cave in. This time though, I have toughed it out. Last night I almost broke and so I thought, no I am just going to bed. Well this morning I woke up feeling fantastic! Having that raw "high" a lot of you guys have described. Even the other day, I told my partner I'm just not feeling that Alive Feeling that people describe when they go raw and I almost convinced myself to go back to raw till 4. I am so glad I didn't and so glad Freelee turned this into a challenge - cause I love rising to an occasion. I feel so great today and I thanked you Freelee while I was driving home and all alone, because I just felt incredible. I have to say, no headaches today, sleeping much better and the salt cravings are not calling me this evening. I guess I am writing this to say "hang in there" if you are struggling, maybe tomorrow is the day you finally detox and feel the rush of being fully raw; I started Dec 31 and today is the first real day I feel just awesome.
thanks Freelee :-)
