I finished the raw food diet 30 day trial and couple of weeks ago, I decided to wait to write this summary as I wanted to see how I would get along after finishing the trial. Since finishing the trial I have found it quite difficult to stay motivated so I have ended up eating 3 cooked meals a week along with some chocolate and little bit of wine. Naughty.
The first time I had some food I felt like my stomach was hollow and that I could just eat and eat, it tasted delicious but after a while I started to feel really really tired, bloated and I had a lot of flatulence. It made me realise that I actually felt a lot better eating raw food than I had realised. That evening I felt totally exhausted, like I could have gone to bed at 8. It took me about a day and a half to feel better again. Since then the main reason that I have had cooked foods are the cravings, which I don't think I'd have so strongly if I ate more calories of fruit and greens.
I want to carry on eating a raw food diet and I hope to reduce the amount of cooked foods that I'm eating.
Weight loss and inch loss summary
At the beginning of the trial I weighed 142.8lbs and by day 30 I weighed 128.2lbs therefore the net weight los was 14.6llbs. Amazing. I'm really impressed, I never thought I could lose so much weight so quickly. I guess the test now will be to see if I can maintain the weight loss.
Day 1 Day 30 Difference Chest 34 32 2 Waist 33 31.25 1.75 Abdomen (at widest part) 37.9 34.9 3 Hips 36.6 34.5 2
The day before I finished the trial I asked my collegue to go through the Kinesiology checks that we did before we began the trial. It was amazing every single muscle that we tested was strong, every single one. Could believe. Also not one mineral or vitamin popped up as being deficient. We also checked the endocrine system and the digestive system and agaian everything strong. Phenominal. It's amazing that I could get these results just after one month, I can only imagine how I'd feel after a year.
These results far surpassed anything that I had imagined and in a way would make me unemployed if everyone ate a raw food diet and got these results.
My body is now alkaline 7.5 which is what it should be. I will monitor this every now and again to see what happens.
I have been really happy with the results and feel so much better that I have managed to loose some weight. I still have a little way to go but I need to start exercising now and also try and keep on a raw food journey.
If you have any questions about the results or anything that I have written over the last 30 days I would be happy to answer them.
Thanks so much for checking my site out : )
