Are you starting a raw diet or do you struggle with starting because you feel that it is not working for you? Let me ask you this: ARE YOU EATING ENOUGH? Why do people fail at eating FullyRaw? The number one reason is because they do not eat enough. Don’t be discouraged!
The number one mistake that people make when they first go FullyRaw is that they don’t eat enough. I want you to succeed, so I’m going to go through different fruit/veggie calorie amounts to help you understand how much you need to be eating to feel your best.
More often than not, I hear about people who try eating FullyRaw for 1-2 weeks, and they feel amazing! They lose weight, have more energy, clearer skin, and feel alive!
Then after a few weeks, they hit a plateau, and they begin to feel tired, lethargic, and spacey. When I sit down with these people, what we discover is that they are calorie deficient. They lack energy because they are not consuming enough energy.
This can be a scary journey for many. The first step is always the hardest because its such a new world– it’s a change of lifestyle. It’s not a diet; it’s a way of LIFE. When you begin this lifestyle, it does take time to adapt to eating more fruits and veggies, but once you get the hang, it becomes like second nature and you REALLY FEEL the benefits!
In my last video I show you what I ate. Most people don’t believe I eat that much and that’s ok. I’m not asking you to eat as much as me. I run 6-10 miles daily. I am an an athlete. I need more calories than the average Joe.
Take the formula, fit it for you. Eat what feels comfortable. Calorie awareness is so so important. Most people have been taught to diet-with calorie restriction. I’m here to tell you that calorie AWARENESS IS important. This is an abundant lifestyle, not restriction.
