Raw Day One went pretty well. I ate 80% raw, which was pretty good, especially considering it was my very first day!
I found myself very hungry in the afternoon, and couldn't figure it out--after all, I'd been eating ALL DAY!!--but when I tallied the calories (just to make sure--I don't actually count calories), I found that it was very low, despite eating an entire avocado. More food needed apparently. Live and learn. That's what this experiment is for, right?
I have two things at the library waiting for me after work today. One is a documentary, "Raw for 30 Days" about a group of people with both type-one and type-two diabetes going raw for 30 days. I hear it's amazing, so I thought I'd watch it. The other is a raw cookbook. I'm hoping I can gather some good recipes over the month, since I hope to incorporate raw foods into my regular diet (that's diet like this is my healthy diet, not diet like I'm on a diet) once the 30 days are done. I'm also the kind of person who can't eat the same thing over and over (which isn't very nutritionally-balanced anyway), so I need to gather recipes to try.
So, so far so good. I need to figure out how much food is enough, since so much of what is eaten in the raw food diet is fruits and veggies, but I'll get there. I want to make sure I do this month properly!
