Turning a New Leaf Again - Back to 80% Raw Diet

After a long sojourn, returning to the diet that works best for ME.

Well, it's been a long time since I got up the gumption to say I'm going to do it again. I have gone on raw diet several times before and every time I got GREAT results physically, mentally, emotionally.

However, "other stuff" kept intervening -- not the least of which was my life-long heroin-addict-like addiction to refined and processed foods.

I found that when I went on 100% raw diet it was the EASIEST for me. Just having that choice already made that I was not going to eat it unless it was raw and vegan actually made life simpler for me -- but never for long. Why?

You probably guessed it: Other people.

It is damned hard to deal with all the things other people will throw at you when you are eating a super-super healthful diet. Why? I wish I could understand, but APPARENTLY it's just that if you or I go on a 100% healthy food diet and they notice that not one thing they ate all day or all week is "allowed" on our diet, they FLIP. One person said they are judging themselves -- so they lash out at YOU because if you just had never been there eating what you eat it never would have happened in the first place and therefore YOU are the offender.

For me, it just ain't worth it. Sometimes I found that I would rather pretend to NOT be a raw foodist when around certain important people in my life (whom I rarely see).

Example: I got some goji berries. Told my bro-in-law I was excited about them because I happened to be sitting there eating some and he happened to be standing there smoking a cigarette, and just to make pleasant conversation I told him about how the Chinese say that goji berries help one to have a long life. I had not had any for a long while and was living in a place where I had to order it through the mail and it was expensive and I wasn't sure he would like them anyhow, so I did NOT even offer him any. Later my sister told me to ease up on him -- because he had felt I was telling him he should eat goji berries!

Well, I ended up in some situations where I literally felt I was not ALLOWED to talk about food and what is good or not good. Then when I finally had my life situation again where I was living alone and could eat whatever I pleased I could not AFFORD raw food.

I guess that's when I got all emotional about it and made the stupid decision to totally give up on raw food. Now for the past year I have eaten a very mixed diet but am coming back to raw -- because I FEEL so much better when I eat raw, and in very important ways. For instance, walking is very difficult when I eat cooked grains or bread or crackers or pasteurized dairy products. (I don't know if raw dairy is really okay for me or not, but because I don't feel comfortable putting animals in slave conditions at dairies I feel I should not eat them much.)

Well, anyhow, maybe I'll start coming here more often and talking about fun things to eat and saying the things that SOME people I know would FLIP if they heard me say. (smile)

I'm glad I'm coming back to raw. I worked toward raw for many years out of the past 20, and I know that each time I return to it I bring more knowledge and experience with me. Hopefully that will work in my favor in a big enough way that I won't have to totally "drop it" again.
