I can't believe I'm still losing weight, that I haven't at least plateaued for a couple of days. For the last year or so my weight pretty much fluctuated between 135 and 140 until I totally lost it and started bingeing a little over two weeks ago. Being an overeater the same way an alcoholic is an alcoholic, meaning for life whether or not I'm currently in control of my eating, means that at the end of this three or four day binge, exactly on March 5th, my weight was 149 pounds. That's an 11 lb gain in four days. I knew I'd be able to stop the binge but at the same time feared that slowly losing those quickly gained 11 lbs would discourage me and set me up for another binge. That's why I'm here, relying on the good old Master cleanse to get me back on track once again. I am now below my average weight and have been on the period for the last three days but nevertheless I keep losing.
On the slightly negative side: yesterday I felt weak, tired and freezing cold. After taking a 2-hour nap the tired and freezing went away but the weakness remained. I walked three miles on the treadmill but didn't get any joy out of it. Today I'm still feeling weak.
I've ordered the 80/10/10 book by Douglas Graham and plan to try his suggestions in the future. It's a lot stricter than the regular raw food lifestyle in the sense that it limits fat intake to 10%. The payoff is though that one should eat as much fruit and veggies as possible - 3000 kcal is not considered crazy. And boy can I eat 3000 kcal. I also love monodiets and bland food. For me it's all about quantity. People who start this way of life say that it took them a while to work themselves up to being able to eat i.e. 10 bananas for one meal or 6 mangoes for another. Ha! I could eat 10 bananas and 6 mangoes for breakfast, I just can't afford to buy that much. Actually I might have slightly exagerated about what I can eat for breakfast but for sure I wouldn't have to work my way up to 10 bananas. I'd be missing nuts though and avocado; they are allowed but limited due to their high fat content.
