Modified Challenge: Eat a minimum of 2,000 calories of Raw Fruits, Vegetables, nuts and seeds for a whole 30 days and document any changes.
It has been almost 10 days since I’ve switched my diet from Only 2,000 raw calories to at least 2,000 raw calories.
And I still feel the same!
For the most part, the energy levels are still a natural high, it’s easy to get out of bed and I still feel like I’m getting fitter and healthier.
I’ve put some weight back on though that’s for sure. In the 15 days I was completely raw, I had lost about 4 pounds. I stopped on the scale on Saturday and was back up 4 pounds!
That’s good for me as I’m pretty lean anyway.
A few things I’ve noticed is that, if I have small portions of cooked meals, no matter what they are, it doesn’t effect my energy levels.
The moment I have about a full plate of food, I immediately feel lethargic and like I need to take a nap.
I think the hack here is to have half a plate of cooked food at any given time. I feel like the first half is where my hunger is satisfied. The second half is really just to finish what’s on my plate so I don’t feel bad about throwing anything out.
It’s been a great new rule I’ve permanently added to my diet. Eat whatever I want but half a plate max.
Not to mention that eating 2,000 raw calories makes me full for most of the day anyway and so I hardly eat cooked food. Even if I crave some cooked food, I’ll have a really small portion and feel full and stop.
For days 21, 22 and 23, I ate 90% raw. Like I’ve mentioned, there was just no space for any other food.
I’ve also realized that raw food is more easily digestible than cooked food which is why I lost so much weight. I feel like cooked meals get stored as fat more often because of the complexity of the carbs as opposed to organic carbs.
It’s all broscience in my head though so don’t take it as 100% true.
I have about 5 days left to go in this challenge as I’m writing this post. I can’t believe how fast it went by and am really looking forward to my next 30 day challenge!
