    Good decision, DiaShel.

    I'm really undecided as to whether I want to keep it up. I feel really good when I have fruit for brekky and salad for lunch but when I start having more cooked foods I find I want them instead of wanting raw foods.

    Raw works very well indeed for me. My blood pressure descends to normality, cholesterol too, I have to have sea kelp tabs to keep iodine up or my thyroid is under active. Raw cereal muesli for breakfast, fruit all day, simple green and red salads, handful of mixed nuts with a drizzle of olive oil seems to keep me going for days, weeks. Unfortunately, I slp-off the raw wagon when eating out or having to cook for visiting family. I still cook vegan - meatfree spag bol, chilli non-carne, etc but it isn't raw!

    Yay Missbettie! Let us know how it goes for you.

    All the yummiest fruits are in season right now, so I'm eating a little bit more raw these days too.

    Just about to go grab a juicy peach from the fridge

    so I did fairly well, at least for half of the week, towards thursday I started dwindling down...I didn't really feel too different, though one of my ankles swelled up, not sure if it was because of the rawness but anyhoo...I think I am going to try for raw up until a cooked diner, I just find it easier as I cook for my bf....

    I didn't loose any weight though, which is kinda expected cause I wasn't excersing...gonna start that up again next week so hopfully I will start to notice results and start feeling a wee bit better.

    Good work MissBettie!

    Just as a side note....you mentioned about your ankle. When I went raw, one of my big toes swelled up. I'd eaten a mega amount of raw tomatoes in the days preceeding. Have you eaten loads of raw tomatoes?

    Well I ate about something like 2.5 pounds of tomatoes in 3 days.....so I was thinking if you ate a lot of tomatoes, that maybe our toe/ankles problems could be related.

    Is it possible though that your ankles could've swelled up from water retention, or if it's really hot there, it could be from that?

    It's not a good idea to have an unusually large amount of any one food. Eg tomatoes.

    I slip off the raw food wagon now and then, lured away by processed veggie convenience foods, but I always feel more alert and healthier when I return.

    Good luck with keeping to the faith, Miss Bettie!

    really? cause it seems like mono meals are looked on as really good.

    its said that trigger foods like tomatoes should be avoided by those sufferin from arthritis so perhaps an overload of toms can trigger joint swelling/sensitiveness too?

    Yes, I definately thought it could've been gout. I didn't go to a doctor, I just let it go away on it's own, but I did try to self-diagnose using medical websites. The thing is, I don't remember seeing tomatoes being listed on any of the "trigger foods" lists for causing gout.

    Yeah, I eat an anti-inflammatory diet, both tomatoes and potatoes are on the "bad" list. Though I doubt you'd be eating many raw potatoes!!

    I havn't really looked at mine to much. i hope it has all the nifty attachments. but for the most part i hope its strong enough to grind nuts.
