‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

Today was the hardest thus far.

Sorry to be boring. I'm just recording today's intake so I can keep track.

7am: half cup celery/spinach drink
9am 3 dates with raw coconut, a pear
11am small green salad with 1/2 avocado, red peppers, spinach, sunflower sprouts
1pm 1/2 cup organic fruit blended into smoothie: rasberries, strawberries, blueberries
3pm 2nd small green salad as above with half an avocado, 2 pieces dehydrated apple
5pm handful raw organic baby carrots
7pm whole cup of blended fruit smoothie: as above, one tsp honey
lots and lots of water throughout the day

Still not hungry in the least, but man the cravings are killing me. Today I was so angry I actually threw my phone and broke it. (I was alone - no worries.) Lots of anger surfacing. Feel like I'm sitting on a ball of rage the size of the sun. What could it be from? No idea. I'm going to try journaling now before bed.

For those interested, here is how I dealt with the extreme cravings:

~took a long walk with the dogs - didn't help, but at least I was moving.
~ cleaned the entire kitchen and livingroom- helped a tiny bit.
~ called a friend who's 'been there' - helped for an hour or so.
~ Did tapping (EFT) for 4 cycles, three times today. Helped ALOT.
I still don't get how EFT works, but it does.

I really hope tomorrow is easier. Yesterday was amazing. I even had an experience of euphoria. I called and asked the nutritionist and she said that was normal on this diet. No euphoria today. Just mad cravings and really grumpy attitude.

But I did it. I have to keep reminding myself. I did it. I got thru another day 100 percent raw.
My body is thanking me even though my mind is pissed...lol.


  1. Yes, you did it! I am also on a detox at the moment.... it must be this time of the year.... and yes the cravings and being irritable is completely normal! Keep up the fantastic work! x

  2. You have inspired me! We can do this girl! I am 5'2 and 70.. well prolly more like 80 lbs overweight. We have kids!!! We need to be there for them. We need to be healthy, energetic! You can do it.. it will get easier. Im officially changing my eating habits too. We need to lost the weight.. exercise.. GET HEALTHY! You are too strong to let those stupid oreos get the best of you! Screw you junk food! Come on hun, lets get healthy.. for ourselves and our little girls! Be strong.. i KNOW you can do it! Size 10 here you come!!!

  3. Yeah for you for doing it! Sorry to hear it's messing with your head, though.

    Is stevia allowed on your diet? If so, it is a good natural sweetener (and my prefered one.) It is quite effective in helping to curb those carb cravings, too. My second choice for sweeteners is agave nectar. It tastes a lot like honey but has a much lower glycemic index. It's organic and can be found at health food stores...although I found some at Wally's Mart today (and it was quite a bit cheaper than the stuff at the health food specialty store.) Because of it's low glycemic index, it's generally considered diabetic friendly.
