Raw Food Diet – Day 22

Today was good physically, although my energy felt a little lower than usual. I haven’t had any special feelings of euphoria for a few days now. For the most part, I’m feeling about the same as I did before this trial, at least physically. The psychological aspects of this diet seem to be going downhill.…

Raw Food Diet – Day 21

Today was good energy-wise. I don’t seem to be having any more issues related to detox or adaptation. I feel at least as good as I did before this trial. I was more motivated to eat fresh fruit today vs. yesterday, so it was better than just going through the motions. I especially enjoyed the…

Raw Food Diet – Day 20

Something very strange happened today. I was nearly out of produce, probably not even enough to last the rest of the day, so I definitely had to shop today. After a simple breakfast, Erin and the kids and I piled into the car to do our usual weekly shop. I turned the key to start…

Raw Food Diet – Day 19

Today was wonderful. I had great energy throughout the day and found it easy to concentrate. I also had some spurts of euphoria. I included a lot more greens today as some people suggested, so that may have a beneficial effect. I feel fantastic right now. Blood Sugar I’ve been monitoring my blood sugar from…

Raw Food Diet – Day 18

Today was another good day, although I wouldn’t say it was quite as good as the other days this week. Overall I felt pretty much normal today but not uber-fantastic. I had a typical weight workout at the gym this morning. I notice the weight training workouts have become more taxing, but I’m using heavier…

Raw Food Diet – Day 17

This was my fourth good day in a row. If there’s a hump to get past when adapting to this diet, I’m probably past it. I didn’t feel euphoric today, but I felt very positive and happy, and I had plenty of energy with no daytime drowsiness. I had a good aerobic workout at the…

Raw Food Diet – Day 16

Today was my third positive day in a row. I had very stable, even energy throughout the day with no drowsiness. I felt very happy emotionally, sometimes mildly euphoric for a few minutes at a time. I’m feeling considerably better than I did before starting this trial. I’m enjoying this diet much more than I…

Raw Food Diet – Day 15

Today was another very good day, so that’s two in a row. It wasn’t quite as good as yesterday, but it was close. It started with a slightly sluggish morning workout, which was really my fault because I didn’t eat anything before doing weight training. Normally I eat a piece of fruit on the way…

Raw Food Diet – Day 14

Today was definitely one of the best. I slept well last night and didn’t have any trouble getting up. I felt a little sluggish during my morning aerobic workout, although it was nothing serious. On the way home from the gym (6:15am), I started feeling pretty good, and I felt great for most of the…

Raw Food Diet – Day 13

Today was mixed. I woke up still feeling mentally foggy, and for most of the morning I was physically sluggish, like I just wanted to lie in bed or sit on the couch all day. In the late morning my energy gradually increased. After lunch I played disc golf in the park with 3 friends,…
