Just want to say Hi.
« on: August 20, 2008, 02:24:53 am »
Well, i am new to t raw/paleo dieting, and i am still unsure as to what sort of diet i want to partake in. I am heavily leaning towards a mostly vegan(with some raw fish perhaps)

Really i just want to be healthier, i feel really tired all of the time. I also want to lose a bit of weight maybe 10-15 lbs. I am normal weight now but losing a few lbs. could not hurt.

Welcome to the forum! It's a good idea to read the "sticky" topics on each subforum, there's also recipes in the recipes section etc.

IMO, it's not usually recomended to just opt for raw vegan and raw fish - this would be a sort of Instincto-like diet, and I can tell you that they notoriously overindulge on raw, sweet fruits(which can cause dental erosion etc.). You'd also be missing out on raw fats, which are necessary. Mind you, a lot of people start off with Raw Vegan/Fruitarian diets and then turn to RAF/RVAF diets sooner or later when the former plant-based diets turn up nutritional deficiencies - I was no exception.

As regards the fatigue, I also had chronic fatigue. In my own case, getting rid of raw dairy(to which I was allergic) and including raw organ-meats helped a great deal. Given that a lot of chronic fatigue cases are gland-related in origin,  raw glands like thyroid/adrenals might be an option, preferably bought from grassfed farms.

Welcome Lucidknight!

I absolutely love your screen name! Are you coming from the raw vegan camp as many here have or just investigating different ways of eating in general. Tyler has given some good advice.

Thanks for the advice i will take it into consideration.

I am just trying different things in general, although i am finding it hard to get past my cereal eating habits.

and thank you I based my screen name off of my first name Lucia.

Lucia, you are lucky you live in the same country as Tyler.
Maybe you can have a face to face chat with him.
I consider Tyler my RPD mentor, search for him in All Experts and the YahooGroups. (look for Geoff)

I've tried raw vegan, raw fruitarian, wai diet (fruit + raw eggs + raw fish) and then Raw Paleo Diet.

I found raw paleo diet the most delicious, most effective, most healthy, most enjoyable diet to be on.  For long term sustainability and spectacular results, Raw Paleo Diet is simply the best.
