:D thanks SAR! That makes me really happy! I started the blog not too long ago, because I want to share the information I've learned with others, and it feels great when I know I'm doing that.

I actually logged on to post this recipe for everyone: http://rawfoodlove.blogspot.com/2011/12 ... -soup.html
It's for a DELICIOUS raw soup that warms you right up. OMG IT IS YUMMY.
Everybody make it! Perfect for winter! I also just posted a recipe for "hot chocolate" and it's soooo good. Again, perfect for winter =) Enjoy!

Oh and yes, about the food masks - they're great aren't they? It just makes sense to me. If you're gonna put it on your skin, you should be comfortable with putting in your body. I think I'll do an avocado mask tomorrow. It makes my skin soft and glowing!
Honey's great because it "sucks" the dirt and toxins out of your pores and skin, like a vacuum.

Happened upon this web page that seems to explain what I've been going through lately in my acclimation to raw food. I don't believe all of what is said here but the grand majority resonates with my experience. How about you?

'Detoxing' due to raw foods is not a real phenomenon. :/

You're right, I've never "dexoted." However, I detoxed greatly when I went raw. :zunge:

I mean that when many raw foodists discuss 'detoxing', they are discussing it improperly.

Detoxing is a process that we all undergo on a daily basis, and has little to do with the food you eat. How well your body removes toxins will depend on a number of factors, including nutritional status, weight, age, genetics, etc.

Raw detoxing is used to discuss how enzymes need raw foods to thrive in the body and the dangers of cooked foods and starches and whatnot. This version of the term 'detox' is mumbo jumbo, and has no scientific basis.

Wiki has great articles which describe each usage of the word:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detoxification

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detoxification_(alternative_medicine)

Hmm okay I've never thought of it that way... Interesting! But I think we're all talking about the same thing here, so it's really just a convenient term more than scientific correctness. =)

My first non experienced/educated guess on the body heat thing is that you're eating less complex carbohydrates now that you've gone raw. You might want to add potatoes or something.


Thanks for the insights. I asked around to some other friends who recently dropped a lot of weight and they all concurred that thermostats had to be adjusted warmer in their houses. I'm okay with that. Besides, I'm not a starch fan, just don't care for them. But have some French Fries in my honor!

THIS!

I become so heat intolerant with weight. This is the first summer I actually hated. But as I'm losing my weight again (down to 181 yesterday and probably down another lb today - I'm dumping fluids) my feet and hands FREEZE not to mention if I go outside it goes right through my whole body. lol

Hopefully in the future I'll have enough muscle to make up for the loss! :wink:

Just push through it! =) Your body is probably directing more blood than usual towards your insides, instead of your skin, because you're losing a lot of weight (i.e. getting rid of lots of built-up junk in your digestive system) so your insides are working harder. Once you reach a healthy, maintainable weight you should return back to a normal temperature.

*Not a professional, just my self-educated opinion =)

It doesn't bother me personally. I was always generally cold natured until I gained weight, so that's nothing new. Although the cold feet thing is. They especially freeze when in bed and even though under the covers I guess after I get still and start resting they turn to blocks of ice. lol

What you said does make sense because they say if your body needs energy it will take it from the hands and feet before anything else.
