Woke up this morning feeling exhausted, I had a lot to do last night and stupidly didn't get to bed till 2am and then I was up with Sean at 7am. Since I had Sean I've been having to catch up on lost sleep during the day but I feel that I'm loosing a lot of my day. When I started this diet I was hoping to start going to sleep earlier so that I could get out of napping during the day but no changes so far. It doesn't look like it's going to happen tonight either as it's already very late : (
My weight dropped by 2lbs to 140.8lbs. Net weight loss is 2lbs in 1 day. Wasn't expecting to lose that amount in 1 day so I'm really happy.
What I've eaten today
1. Banana Smoothie - 5 bananas and 150g of celery
2. 200g of plums.
Again today I didn't eat early enough so I was starving by 1pm and didn't have energy to start cutting fruit and veg up so I just ate 400g of grapes.
1. Slice of melon
2. 1 plum
I was really busy today so I didn't end up eating dinner until about 10pm, it seemed to take ages for me to decide what to end then took ages to cut it all up.
1. Salad - 250g of iceburg lettuce, 150g of red pepper then I made a blended 30g almond and 125g of strawberries to make a salad dressing.
2. 150g of mango with a tablespoon of lettuce.
I found it quite difficult to eat all of the lettuce but I managed to finish it in the end, just had to take lots of breaks. I evetually finished dinner at about 11.30pm which is not good at all.
Raw food diet summary
I have never been good at planning what I'm going to eat so I find this part quite difficult as I end up not eating until very late like today and I don't know what to eat during the day. I'm also finding it quite difficult and very expensive to get enough organic food, I ended up having to buy conventional fruit and veg today as there wasn't enough organic food available. Apart from these things it's been a lot easier than I thought it would be, I know that I've only done 2 days but I had built it up so much in my head that I thought I'd find it really difficult to cope. I even ended up eating more junk food than I usually would do in the lead up to the diet, as a from of self sabotage which meant that I put on even more weight.
My totals for the raw food diet today were as follows: Calories ï»¿1493, Fibre 46g, Carbohydrates 342g, Protein 25g and Fats 21g.
My percentage totals for the raw food diet were: Carbohydrates 83%, Protein 6% and Fat 11%. Just slightly over for fat today but I haven't had as many calories as I should have. So I will try and reduce my fat % tomorrow and increase my total calorie intake.
