I strongly believe that every goal needs a self-discipline, and as I see people on raw and as I remember myself - it all starts with curiosity, courage, but it can last only on SELF-DISCIPLINE.
I am sorry to say this, but without discipline raw food...will be another diet ( a week, two weeks, month, 90 days diet ).
After certain time of being hyped up with all the new crazy things, there usually comes a time of doubt or time of laziness.
It can happen after month or half of a year.
You stop juicing or blending.
You stop looking for the best nutrition ever.
You don't eat enough, because you didn't prepare anything ahead.
Human thing - bored...
After two years one needs to usually find another "raw food" idea to keep it interesting.
As long as you treat it as a diet, temporary thing - you don't need much of a self-discipline. All is fun and fun and fun.
You might not even notice that you are actually using a self-discipline as a tool to blend, chop and get more interested in reading raw food books.
But than, what I strongly believe, come your self-discipline, plan, routine of some sort into play. Without it we usually end up at the nearest cooked restaurant.
;-) sorry to put this sour picture out here.
But what is important, self-discipline, goal setting, planning can be as much a JOY as playing in kindergarten!
If we will not believe in this - we won't be a part of Steve Pavlina's forum!
