1. I feel better all the way around when I eat raw foods. In my life that is not always plausible so I compromise by eating an occasional piece of chicken or fish and some cooked vegetables.
2. The more I delve into a raw foods diet, the more my tastebuds appreciate real, whole foods and the less desirable those processed foods become.
3. When I cave and give into that sweet tooth or emotional eating, I always regret it. Each time is another building block in a walkway toward better choices.
4. It is a tremendous help and asset to keep a food diary documenting the foods you eat and how you feel physically and emotionally. In example, by personal reflection, I have helped my husband to recognize that when he eats a high carbohydrate meal, he becomes super sleepy within about 20 minutes after eating.
