Entering the Realm of Raw Cleansing
I’ve heard so many people rave about a raw diet that I am willing to give it a whirl. The basic tenet of eating raw, fresh fruits and vegetables is appealing to me and the myriad of benefits increased energy, better sleep, clearer thinking, and weight loss all have me willing to forgo my morning coffee(maybe) and refrain from meat(at least for a little while) those are the two thing that I am going to miss the most.
I started a 21 day raw cleanse today, or rather I attempted to start the raw cleanse. I did have a cup of coffee…not sure I really want to give this up 🙂 The raw day started with a large glass of fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice, quite possibly one of the best things I have ever tasted, and surprisingly filling. I had lunch with my daughter, sushi – sort of raw I reasoned, but kept to the raw theme the rest of the day.
Not bad I guess, this week is supposed to be an easing in week so your system doesn’t go into shock or anything. I can live with that. Maybe by the end of the week I’ll be more willing to go with out the coffee, maybe….
Energy Level – 6
Clear Thinking – 6
Sleep – (tell ya tomorrow)
Weight – (ditto)
Until tomorrow 🙂
