I just read a book called Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose. I highly recommend her book. It teaches about food combination and goes into many facets about detoxification like fasting, colonics, and quick exit foods.
I like that she helps people transition into whole foods through easy steps. She has a scale from 1 to 5 that says where you are and where you want to be. The number 5 is basically the standard American diet, and 1 is someone who only eats raw. I am a number 2, which means I eat raw most of the day with some cooked foods with my dinner.
So, being a number 2, here is what I ate yesterday. Oh, and it is this style of eating that has me within 9 pounds of where I was when I was a fit 17 year old!
Water until noon.
Noon- Green Lemonade
2:00 pm big bowl of watermelon
(I would have had more fruit but my day got busy at this time)
4 pm I had a cookie and a yogurt ice cream on my date with my 10 year old boy.
7pm Guacamole salad and a cooked bok choy with cashews side dish
I lost almost a pound today after that day of eating. I love it and I don't feel deprived or hungry!
