Negatives of a Raw Vegan, FRUITARIAN Diet βž–πŸ‘

If you haven’t already, I suggest you read my raw vegan, mostly fruitarian experience first, before reading the cons. Go on, I will wait until you come back!

  1. The first, and the major one, the only one I have covered in the other post is the number of times you have to visit the restroom. It is literally more than 10 times a day, and I am not even exaggerating. It’s annoying because you are not even drinking much water to begin with, but you are taking out so much! As long as you have access to a washroom, all is good. But once you don’t, you are in trouble. πŸ’¦
  2.  

  3. Reality hits you. Once you go raw, you realise how ridiculously addicting cooked food happens to be, even the simplest of foods! And you will crave them. Oh boy! The one and only one thing I craved the entire time was steamed veggies, roots and cruciferous specifically. And I don’t even like broccolli! Bleh. Its like the body is saying “Anything will do, even just steamed broc, just give me SOMETHINNGG COOOKEDD!!” πŸ’Š
  4.  

  5. You can’t numb yourself. There is no cooked food, and cooked food is numbing. That’s the reason it is called comfort food to begin with, isn’t it? Raw is neither comfort food, not numbs you out. Which means, you can’t numb out even a single thing that you numb with cooked food, no numbing emotions, feelings, desires or fears. Your food is raw, your mind will be raw and vulnerable, you will be out of your comfort zone, facing your biggest fears. And this will bring the best out in you. You will be the best version of yourself. And although I have listed this as a con, it eventually is more of a pro. 🌟
  6.  

  7. Social situations. I survived them. Somehow. Was awkward. And those are hard to deal with. Especially when you have to explain yourself, forget raw, when people don’t even know and understand the concept of veganism to begin with! -_-
  8.  

  9. Sleep. Once the detox phase is over (1-2 weeks, depends), I didn’t really need much sleep, when normally, I sleep alot! Why this is listed as a con is because I FREAKING LOVE SLEEP! And being raw, I had intense amount of energy and a reduced need to sleep. Which is not fair! πŸ˜₯
  10.  

  11. After raw. Things will get messed up. Now raw cleanses inside out. And once you start incorporating cooked, you will notice many many negatives. Mucus, ear wax, eye crust, tongue film, dry skin, dehydration, sluggish digestion, tiredness, etc., to name a few. And I have come to realise that these things are quite normal. Happens when you eat cooked. Which makes me believe that cooked is NOT NORMAL, and raw is what is normal, the way we are designed to eat, whether we want to accept it or not. 

Bottomline, in my opinion, the only con to raw is the numerous restroom visits. Oh and also having to answer dumb questions. But that’s about it. The rest of it isn’t even a con to begin with!

Peace out! ✌

50 day Fully Raw, Fruitarian Challenge Experience πŸ“

As the title suggests, in this particular post, I am going to share my experience with being a raw vegan, mostly fruitarian for 50 days! 🌱

Now before I dive right in, I must warn, there may be some uncomfortable, maybe even gory details (read: pee and poop information), so if you are not interested in it, just skip it over. Since I am going in for full details, I want to be totally transparent here, and hence, won’t leave that particular topic out. πŸ“–

Moving along, here are the benefits I have noticed the most. So first and foremost: 

  1. Energy levels. Through the roof. Literally! Before I started eating raw, everytime I would look up videos and articles about eating raw, soaring energy levels would be one thing in common everywhere. And I would laugh it off, thinking it was just over rated. But as soon as I went raw, within 1-2 days, I began to notice I had ridiculous amounts of energy, so much so that everyone around me started commenting ‘Why are you so happy?’ and ‘What are you so excited about?!’. Its like you are high on life, it’s pure amazing, I don’t even know how to describe it! βœ‹
  2.  

  3. No after meal crash. Which is just mind blowing! If you know my background, I went from a standard junk food based diet, to a healthy, mostly plant based diet, then finally moved on to a clean, 100% whole foods, plant based vegan diet. But every single one had that one thing in common, the after meal crash. Not exactly a crash, but I would feel quite tired after a meal. Its like my body just wanted to shut down. Know why? Cooked food. Concentrated calories. Harder to digest. Makes you tired. So simple, and it took me 22 years to figure out! Ugh. πŸ‘Š
  4.  

  5. Skin. So so much clearer, softer and smoother. It’s like going back to the skin you had as a baby, when you didn’t eat processed crap. πŸ‘‹
  6.  

  7. Weight. Now, I am a weight loss transformation (15kgs, read my story in my first blog post). Over time, I developed an unhealthy obsession with the weighing scale. Hence, about a year ago, I made the decision to stop stepping on that machine. Coming back to the topic of ‘weight’, I do not check my weight, but I for sure do feel much lighter, and may have lost a little bit of weight here and there, but I can’t say for sure if the numbers on the scale have changed since I don’t step on it to begin with. βš–
  8.  

  9. More in tuned with my body. Now I know many of you will call this ‘hippy shit’, and I totally understand. 2 years ago, I would have too. Anyway, what my point is that when we eat foods without cooking them, we are eating exactly the way it was designed in nature, agree? And when our bodies receive nutrients without any changes to it’s original form, it is so much easier on the body, which means, all focus isn’t on digestion now, it is on all other aspects as well. And when the body is focusing on everything, you are not constantly thinking about food all the time, you are more aware of other body parts other than your tummy! Seriously! 
  10.  

  11. I feel cleaner on the inside. Whether we want to accept it or not, cooked food is slow. It doesn’t slip and slide out of the body like raw food does. It goes slowly through and takes its own sweet time to get out (no joke). But when you eat raw, the food itself is so clean, so pure, so delicious, so satisfying, so nutritious, you can’t possibly feel like it’s slow, stuck or is rotting inside! Fruit cleanses, inside out! πŸ‘πŸŽπŸπŸŒπŸ“
  12.  

  13. Nails. The pinkest, prettiest and fastest growing they have ever been! To a point where it’s annoying that I have to cut it more often now. πŸ’…
  14.  

  15. Time saver. Eating fruit saves time. It is nature’s perfect fast food, isn’t it? Just grab and eat on go. If you absolutely really need something, it will be a knife and/or a spoon. The most complicated meal prep when eating fruitarian would be a smoothie. And we know how complicated smoothie making happens to be. Just dump and blend! So hard, isn’t it? βŒ›
  16.  

  17. Digestion and Elimination. Okay, we are going there. Digestion, flawless. Elimination, effortless. Why? Because high water content foods that rub into your skin (banana, mango, peach, plum, papaya, apricot, orange, lemon, kiwi, grapes, cherry, melon, watermelon, avocado, tomato, etc. etc.), it requires minimal effort to digest and exit. You eat it, the body absorbs whatever it needs, the rest it out. Boom! No effort. πŸ’₯
  18.  

  19. Water. When eating cooked, I would drink 3-5 litres of water a day. I actually had to put effort into focusing on drinking enough water. And given my physical activity levels, I still would want to drink more water by the end of the day. Being fruitarian has completely changed that. I don’t need even 2 litres of water. There are some days when I don’t drink even an entire litre in a day. It was shocking to me in the beginning. But it was such a relief at the same time since I didn’t have to put that extra effort into drinking 3L of water everyday. The reason for not needing that amount of water is simple. You eat your water, so there isn’t much need for drinking it. When you eat cooked, dehydrated food, that food absorbs your water, hence you need to keep refilling. The one negative side to eating raw is that although you hardly drink any water, you pee quite a bit because you are eating high water content foods. It’s a good thing, but it can get annoying at times. πŸ’¦
  20.  

  21. Smell. Pee doesn’t smell, poo doesn’t smell and there is no need for deodorant. You eat junk, you smell like junk. Eat clean, smell clean. Period. πŸ‘ƒ
  22.  

  23. Heal. Cuts, bruises and wounds heal much much faster. I have noticed this quite a bit because I keep cutting into my fingers or burning them often, and the rate at which they heal is just amazing! If normally a cut would take 4-6 days to completely heal, when on raw, by the third day, it would be completely healed, no marks remaining either. Mind blowing! 
  24.  

  25. Simplicity. This honestly is the best part. Nothing intricate, no drama, no complicated foods, no complicated people, no unwanted things to worry about. The simpler you eat, the simpler your life gets. No, you don’t need to go shopping for more clothes, jewellery, cosmetics, yada yada, you have all you need. No, you don’t need to go socialise with people that are not on the same page as you, just spend time with yourself. No, you don’t need to care about what someone thinks about you, chances are, they are thinking what you think about them to begin with. Life becomes so simple, there is no need for anything complicated. You are so much more clear minded and intuned with your physical, mental and emotional self, it’s just unbelievable! 🎊
  26.  

    My final take on Raw, although I am still fully raw, I will soon switch to high raw, which is mostly raw, with some cooked food incorporated once in a while. The only reason would be social situations, if not for those, I probably could be fully raw my entire life! Hopefully one day, I ll overcome the whole social situations deal and be 100% raw. Until then, will have to work with what I can. ✌

    All about Exercise

    Alright. Call it what you want, exercise, workout, training, gymnastics or physical activity. It’s all the same thing. But I will stick to the word exercise for the sake of simplicity. πŸ™‚

    Now exercise is a broad topic and has many many categories. It could range from anything basic (aerobic) like walking, jogging, dancing, yard work like raking, digging, lawn moving, πŸšΆπŸƒπŸ’ƒ or something intense (anaerobic) like High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Pilates, weight lifting, sprints, jump rope, etc.πŸ‹ Exercise also includes sports like football, baseball, golf, swimming, etc.,β›Ήβš½πŸ‰πŸŽΎπŸΈπŸŒπŸŠand even flexibility and stretching exercises.

    So basically, exercise is any activity requiring physical effort that is done to improve and maintain health and fitness. Makes sense? Are we on the same page so far? I hope so! 😏

    Now why is exercise so important? What is the difference between the different type of exercises? Which is the most effective? Which should we be doing? When and how should it be done? Let’s go through it one by one, shall we? πŸ™‚

    We all know that exercise is good for us. More often than not, our inner self tells us to exercise, whether just get up and go for a walk, run around, play some sport, or just basically get moving. But we all are guilty of ignoring it. We ignore the signals our bodies give us, and more often than not, end up sitting on our bottoms all day long, don’t we?

    wp-1480529025470.jpg

    The reality is that our bodies are not built for such a sedentary existence. They are built to move! Our blood depends on us moving around to be able to circulate properly. Sitting down for long periods of time makes us agitated. Our hunched sitting position not just affects our spine, but also our lungs, as sitting in such a position gives our lungs less space to expand. So then what happens? The amount of oxygen that fills our lungs becomes limited. Even our concentration levels go down because our brains require oxygen to stay alert. This obviously is not a good thing, is it? 😧

    Have you ever experienced numbness when sitting for long periods of time? 😭 Do we ever give a thought as to why it happens?πŸ€” Sitting for long compresses our soft tissues, blocking our nerves, arteries and veins. This limits nerve signals, and in turn causes the numbness. Sometimes it even causes swelling because of limited blood flow! Scary right? 😨

    Now that we know how not moving around affects our bodies, it obviously makes sense as to how important exercising is. So what really are the benefits of exercising? Well for starters, it helps us feel better physically. It helps boost stamina. It obviously helps loose and maintain our body weight, strengthens and tones our muscles, keeps diseases at bay, improves flexibility, improves our mental health, and so many more things, the best one being it makes us happy! And who doesn’t want to be happy?! 😁

    wp-1480529066814.jpg

    If we break down the types of exercise, we can safely say there are three types, as we discussed earlier, the first one being aerobic, the second anaerobic and the third flexibility.

    Now aerobic exercises are the ones that are often referred to as cardio, because they improve our cardiovascular health. Aerobic basically means “with oxygen“. So logically, aerobic exercises are the ones that use oxygen in the body’s energy generating process. These exercises usually are performed at little to moderate levels of intensity over a long period of time, say a 30 minute walk.🚢

    The exact opposite of aerobic is anaerobic (without oxygen). These exercises are the ones that enhance power and build muscle mass. Since they don’t require oxygen, they are usually for a very short duration but with high intensity, for example, a 5-7 minute HIIT exercise.πŸ‹

    So what about flexibility exercises? Stretching is usually done before and/or after a workout, just because it warms up and relaxes our muscles before and after we exercise. πŸ’Ί

    Now each one of us are different right? Our bodies are different, our metabolism is different, our energy levels are different, our goals are different and so on and so forth. So it makes sense that each type of exercise works differently for each one of us, depending on our needs and goals, correct? 🎯 So which is the best? Obviously, it depends on what we are looking for. If we want to increase our heart health, or just move about, we will go for cardio.πŸƒ If our aim is to loose weight, we will go for something like HIIT. πŸ‹ If we want to improve our body’s flexibility, we will choose to stretch more often right? So each of us have to pick and choose our exercises accordingly.

    The timing of our exercise is very important too.⌚ Some prefer to do it in the mornings before starting off their day. What this does is our bodies use up excess fat for energy when it is in a fasting state. Some people prefer to exercise after work, around the evening, and some prefer to end their day by exercising. What we have to do is find the time that is right for us and stick to it. This is the most important part of exercising. Consistency is the key. πŸ”‘πŸ’―

    screenshot_20161022-23335201.png.png

    With all that said and done, I hope I have clearly put one message out. Get moving. Don’t sit in your back side all day. Yes, there will be times when we don’t feel like doing anything at all, but that is exactly when we need to work even harder and push ourselves to it, and trust me, you will definitely see results, I promise! πŸ™‚

    My thoughts on “Diets”

    Diet. There! I said it! Diet! More like die! Nah! I am just kidding! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    wp-1480424129429.png

    So what is the truth about diets? What is the best diet out there? Why is diet so important? What happens to your body and mind when you diet? There is a lot of confusion surrounding the whole diet thing. Let’s break it down and try to understand the basics first.

    So what is a Diet?

    If we ask Mr Google, what he will tell us is that the word “diet” refers to the kind of foods a human, animal or community habitually consume. This happens to be the exact definition of the word diet. But when someone says the word diet, what comes to our mind first? When someoneΒ comes up to us and Β says “I am going on a diet“, what do we immediately think? We are going to think, oh poor fellow, going to restrict himself/herself, not going to enjoy delicious food, going to eat tasteless and boring food, or something along those lines. Right?Β 

    So why do we assume that way? Why do we think diets are boring? Why do we assume a diet is for a particular period of time? For a few days or weeks or months? Or till the target is achieved? Why do we assume when we follow a diet, we will have to restrict ourselves, eat only a certain amount and a certain number of calories? πŸ€”

    Well the truth is that is what the society wants us to think. Everyone is following a particular diet, isn’t it? Whether it is Paleo, Atkins, Weight Watchers, Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw foods, Fruitarian, Standard American, Indian, Mediterranean, Pescatarian, Gluten free, etc etc., everyone is following atleast one diet in particular, if not a mix of more than one. Do you agree? I think so. Then why does everyone dread the word diet?! Think about it for a minute.

    We are living in the 21st century, where nobody has time for anyone or anything, not even for themselves! We are always on the go, running all over the place, so busy, so much to do and always tend to run out of time! More often than not, we complain about how time is flying, don’t we? 😭

    So in this fast paced lifestyle that we are living, if we don’t find time for ourselves, we obviously don’t find time to take a look at and appreciate what we are eating, right? I believe you are a smart and intelligent human being, and it is not rocket science to figure out how our eating patterns have changed since we have changed our lifestyle. Since we are always on the go, we tend to buy food on the go too. Since we are living this fast paced life, we obviously are choosing fast food too instead of a delicious home cooked meal, much more often than we did a few years ago. I know that nobody wants to agree and accept this, but we know very well deep down that this is the sad reality of our lives today. 😩

    Alright, now think about this. A few years ago, were there as many fast food outlets then as there are now? Were there as many restaurants then as there are now? Did we go out and eat from there as often as we do now? Do we enjoy and appreciate the food we eat now as we did then? Think about it. Ask yourself questions.Β 

    I am going to be bold and openly make this statement right here. The fast food industry had destroyed us. There! I said it! The fast food industry has ruined our eating habits, our health, the environment, the society, our social lives, our taste and appreciation for other foods, our mood, our brain, heck, even our pockets! And it is not me saying this. It is a proven fact. Go look it up!

    img-20151028-wa0006.jpg

    So getting back to the topic, the fast food industry obviously is a major reason for our current eating habits, for the change in our diets in the last few years. So now, when we think of “diet” we immediately associte it with something that is NOT fast food, something that is not addictive and junky. And since our taste buds and brains are so used to and addicted to this so called “food”, we immediately dislike the idea of going on a “diet”, because that obviously means cutting down or cutting out the junk. And this is exactly where the concept of diet = restriction comes from. πŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

    So now what do we do? Once we decide that we want to get rid of our addiction to junk food, we are half way there! Our body will always want what we give it. If we constantly give it junk, that’s all it will want. But if we give it real, nutritious, whole foods, then obviously, that’s what it will want. So how do we get rid of our already exist addiction to the fast food? Obviously, not rocket science, we will have to cut it out completely! Yes, there will be cravings, but we will have to deal with it. It will only be temporary though, trust me on this one!

    I like to think of cravings as my body’s way of telling me that it is dumping something out of it. Say I am craving a pizza. It means my body is telling my brain, dude, I am getting rid of the last bit of this pizza, alright? Now how is my brain going to react to this? Since pizza obviously is addictive, my brain is going to go all cranky and be like bruuh! I want pizzaa! Someone give me PIZZAAA! πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•

    Yeah! That’s exactly how cravings work. If you don’t agree with me on this one, if you don’t believe that fast food is addictive and causes cravings, then tell me the last time you craved fruit. Or a vegetable for that matter! Keep this in mind. Food that is not addictive will not give you cravings. And that is the exact food you should be putting into your body. Not the stuff that causes cravings. Sounds logical so far?

    So to sum it up, eat what your body wants and what it needs. Don’t eat something just because it is called “food”. Fast food is not food. Junk food is not food. Eat whole nutritious food from as close to nature as possible. That, my friends, is real food. And exactly that is what your diet is supposed to consist of. πŸ‡πŸˆπŸ‰πŸŠπŸ‹πŸŒπŸπŸŽπŸπŸπŸ‘πŸ’πŸ“πŸ…πŸ†πŸ„πŸŒ°πŸ 

    I am no doctor, no nutritionist and no dietitian. I am just someone who has experienced this whole diet drama firsthand. Everything I say is my own opinion, I don’t intend to demote any particular diet or anything of that sort.

    All that being said, if there is one thing I want you to take from here, it is that as long as we take care of our body, it will take care of us. As long as we give our bodies real food, it will give us real health. The minute we start giving it fake food, it is only going to get sick. πŸ€’

    Take action now! πŸƒ

    Until next time, adios! πŸ‘‹

    My Health Journey!

    Welcome! So glad you are here! I hope you enjoy reading my first post as much as I did writing it! 😁

    Alright. Let me quickly tell you my story. I am going to dive right into it! I was an overweight child. Went into my teens overweight. Teenage years were almost ending. Still overweight. Until one fine day, March 15 2015, to be exact, I said ok that’s enough. I am done. I am done with this. Call it chubby, healthy, big boned, plus sized, round, etc. etc. The list is never ending. πŸ˜’

    But the reality, the tiny yet horrible word, yes, I am looking at you, ‘fat’. That word. That one word is so poisonous, it has the ability to destroy you.😫 Physically, yes. But even mentally. It will snatch away your confidence, your self esteem, your happiness and will make you feel downright worthless.😩

    And I was done being fat. I was done being the odd one out, not being able to fit in the crowd, not being able to wear a gorgeous dress ‘coz of a size issue, not wanting to even look myself in the mirror, and so many things more. If you are fat or know someone who is, then maybe you can relate. And for whoever feels offended with me using the word ‘fat’, you can go ahead, close this page and move on with your day. I will continue to use that word, because no other word will bring about the same impact as the word ‘fat’ will. Trust me on this one. Been there, done that. πŸ™„

    So what happened starting 15th March 2015 you ask? I lost more than 15 kgs. But that is just one thing out of so many that happened. Now when it comes to a weight loss journey, that’s all people talk about. The number. The number on the scale.🎚 The numbers lost. The inches lost around waist, thighs, etc. And sometimes even progress pictures. But that’s about it. Nobody talks about the mental aspect of loosing weight. Nobody talks about its emotional side. Nobody talks about what happens after you have lost the weight. After you reach your target.🎯 Because for everyone, this is just a diet. A quick fix. A short term solution. And that is straight up wrong. Because when you restrict yourself, things will get worse. Just like pulling an arrow backwards. The more you pull it back, the more it will go forward, with a greater strength and speed. And that is when it is going to do more damage.

    So what is the solution then? It can’t be a “diet” for sure. It can’t be a temporary change. It can’t be a few days or weeks or months thing. It has to be a lifestyle change. Why? Because if it is temporary, then the results will be temporary too, don’t you think? It is pretty logical. If we want something to last a lifetime, we have to take care of it for our entire lifetime.

    So what am I upto now that I have lost my excess weight? When I began my journey, it was just about the weight. About the number. But as I got into it, I realised that there is more to this journey than just losing weight. I lost the weight yes, but I found myself. I found health. I found happiness. Now, I work hard and try my best to live a natural life, just like our grandparents and great grand parents did. No, that doesn’t not mean I wake up at 5 am πŸ•”and start my day by taking bath in a river. 🏞Heck, I live in a desert,🏜 there is no river here. It does not mean I don’t use technology and stuff eitherπŸ“±πŸ’»πŸ“Έ. You wouldn’t be reading this if that were the case. What I really mean by living like our ancestors did is living a whole natural life. Chemical free, toxic free, industrial product free, junk free, etc πŸ’‰πŸ’ŠπŸ›’β˜’πŸ°πŸ­πŸ¦. You get the drill. Go ask your grandparents if they had pizza’s and pastas as often as we do, if they used chemical loaded products like we do back in their day. And by that, I am referring to face wash, body wash, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, toner, moisturiser, acne cream, night cream, day cream, under eye cream, hand and nail cream, foot care cream, deodorant, antiperspirant, carpet cleaner, tile cleaner, oven cleaner, fabric softener, stain remover, wood spray, air freshener, pest killer and the list goes on. I hope I have not scared you by this point.πŸ™ƒ

    I am not saying I have 100% stopped using or consuming all these things, although I try my best to limit them as much as possible. But as a girl, I like using makeup once in a while. Sometimes, all I want to do is tuck in, eat pasta and watch TV all evening. Living in the 21st century, it is not that easy to just go cold turkey when it comes to doing something you have been doing ever since you can remember! Right now, our life is completely surrounded by those stuff, and if we want to get rid of them, it only makes sense to do it slow and steady. Because remember the arrow? When we go cold turkey, thats just the same as pulling the arrow back. What happens when we release the arrow then? I don’t need to repeat it. You are an intelligent person. You know. You can very well imagine.😱

    I think that has been a lot of information in a go! Too much talking, not enough doing.. So until next time, try to look at everything you put in and on your body and how that affects you physically, mentally and emotionally. And no, I am not asking you to throw away half your house in the trash. Just take a look at what all you are using/consuming and why you are doing it. What are your reasons? Are they physical? Emotional? Financial? Mental? Think about it. Ask yourself questions. Half the time, a solution lies in the problem itself.

    Feel free to drop whatever your heart desires in the comments! ☺

    And remember, you are an amazing human being, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

    Take care! πŸ‘‹

    See ya later, alligator! πŸ‘»
