I’ve been on quite the journey since my last post. I think I’ve fully recovered from the concussion and even participated in a 10K. On October 4th the Husband and I decided to completely alter our dietary practices after watching the documentary, Forks Over Knives. We began moving toward a Vegan lifestyle, and by October 9th, all animal byproducts were out of our diet. We have been eating this way for just over two months.
I’ve lost a little weight but not enough to get excited about. My body is going through a transition period. I wish it would respond as quickly as the Husband’s seems to be. I guess this is part of the price I pay for all those years of dieting. I’ve been reading about raw food lately too and leaning more in that direction. I just began following the advice of Alison Andrews to not limit calories. I am confident I’ve gained a few pounds since I started trying to increase my food intake. She says that’s normal for former starve/binge dieters and that things should go the other direction. I’m considering trying this “raw, high fruit” thing for thirty days straight. No supplements, no processed or cooked foods. I wonder what would happen? I can’t afford to go have my blood drawn and a battery of tests run. So what could I track? Would I see any noticeable change in thirty days without those tests?
Hmm, I think I could begin on Friday. I would like to put myself through a fitness test first (I could do that tomorrow) so I can compare the results at the end of thirty days. Tomorrow I’ll post more details, must go brainstorm about this a bit.
