LoganKost Posted January 30, 2008 Share Posted January 30, 2008 Hey everyone, On the 28th I started a trial to see how I could do with a purely raw diet. I have been vegan for some time now, and I want to transition to an all-raw diet. I am 18, 6'2, only 150 pounds. I'm very skinny, but that's how I have been my whole life. As far as my raw diet so far...I have been making 3-4 green smoothies per day, ingredients include (there are variations): At least 4 bananas, pinapple, strawberries, blueberries, mango, black berries, rasberries, baby spinach, broccoli, and other various mixed greens. These smoothies fill my blender about 3/4s of the way full and I finish the whole thing. I have been eating about two large bulls full of salad with each meal. In the morning I have an additional two bannanas, some apples, maybe some strawberries. I have been adding chopped carrots and advocados to my salads, as well. Each time I eat I get very full, so I assume I'm getting enough calories. It's always felt like I can't eat much at all. I just want to make sure this diet seems fine, if there are any concerns let me know. I'm hoping to buy some raw protein powder to add to the smoothies. I haven't done much research on that however, and I'm not sure if the local Whole Foods carries any. Thanks a lot! This website has been a big help in my search for a better, healthier, lifestyle. -Logan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
