HERE IS TO A HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
Here is the 5th part of a 6 part series on transitioning to a raw food diet from the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet)
WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR!
Part 1: For the next month, stop drinking coffee, milk, soda, fruit juice etc. The only thing you should drink is good old water. Bottled, iced, filtered, tap, cold, warm, it does not matter, just drink water. Replace all your other drinks entirely. Also, make sure you drink a MINIMUM of 48 ounces per day. You may not think this is a big deal, but wait and see your results at the end of the month!
Part 2: For the next month, continue with Part 1 and in addition eliminate beef and pork from your diet. Sorry folks, no more ribs, bacon or burgers. You can continue to eat fish and chicken, but try not to substitute for beef, just continue eating your normal amount. Instead of beef try substituting nuts, seeds, and vegetables. This is an important and powerful step that will get you much closer to eating raw and vegan if you can get through the next month!
Part 3: For the next month, continue with Parts 1 and 2. In addition, eliminate cheese and sour cream from your diet. This will help you with your digestive track, and will also help eliminate a lot of salt from your diet. In addition to these changes, incorporate some form of daily exercise above and beyond your normal daily routine. If you already work out 2 to 4 days per week, include some light exercise on your days off. This can include walking to run errands when you would usually drive etc, as well as taking stairs instead of elevators.
Part 4: For the next month, continue with Parts 1, 2, and 3. You should be getting better at this by now. Remember, even though we are approaching Winter, it is still important to stay hydrated. Drink at least 6 glasses of water per day. This is especially important for the next step. Eliminate all processed and cooked grains and sugars. No more bread, pasta, and especially desserts. This may be the hardest step of all. If you can't eliminate 100%, do your best, especially with the baked goods, cakes and pies! If you find yourself getting the munchies for baked goods, substitute fruit and nuts in moderation and drink more water!
NEW TRANSITIONAL CHALLENGE!
Part 5: For the next month, continue with Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4. You should be getting much, much, better at this by now, as well as feeling great. Remember, even though we are now in the dead of Winter, it is still important to stay hydrated. Drink at least 6 glasses of water per day. Eliminate eggs and chicken at this step. This will take you most of the way to being vegan and healthy. This transitioning should not be too difficult for you, because you should be used to filling up, and being satisfied with fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, as well as having learned some great raw and vegan recipes! There is a new one below!
Keep up the good work. You are doing great!
