January 14, Day 14 of raw foods


Today was another strange day for me because it is now a quarter to 11 pm and I’ve not made my minimum number of calories for the day. I’m hungry now, so I’m going to eat a very late meal. Don’t know if that’s good or bad, but I’m gonna do it anyway. I’ve found that 1/4 cup each of hummus and taboule fill me just fine rather than the 1/2 cup each I was having before, so that contributes to the lower number of calories I’ve been eating. Maybe (gasp) I’m actually getting used to eating LESS food! Still, I’m concerned with the amount of calories I eat because I don’t yet trust my body to guide me. One thing I know from past weight loss success is that if one eats too far below one’s caloric reuirements, weight loss can slow down considerably, and I don’t want that to happen.

Lately I’m really noticing how good non-raw foods smell. I’ve been overcome by the aromas of coffee, pizza and peanut butter in my own home. But I’m proud to say that I have not wanted to eat any of those foods- my family is not raw, but so far I’ve been all right with that.

I'm turning into a comment monster on your site! Heheheh! Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you find yourself really hungry later at night, a couple of bananas or a green salad is a really good way of filling the hunger gap without making your sleep uncomfortable. Just don't forget to brush your teeth!
