Raw Food Challenge – Day 4

BONUS! Find this helpful? To download this post as a PDF, click here!

So I’m still doing the raw food challenge and absolutely LOVING it – and for a lot of reasons.

First of all, even though it’s only day 4, my energy levels have catapulted. Absolutely catapulted. I’m surprised about that because I thought I’d still be in detox mode as the toxins flush out through my body – but I’ve had a mild headache at best. My body is usually pretty sensitive and It’s not even like I ate super-healthy the past few weeks before, so it is REALLY weird that I’m not in more pain. Also, a lot of people who go into raw are vegan to start with – I definitely wasn’t.

I actually considered going on a water fast to get myself through the pain and get the healing done quicker, but then decided there’s no need to be a glutton for punishment.

I did ask in a forum and was told there’s no “law” that says I have to go through pain… guess I just got really lucky and my
process will be a slow, smooth one.

Ever since I even started eating raw, I haven’t considered cooked food at all. I look at it as pure poison and think there’s no reason to do that to my body which I love so much. I’m experiencing so many positive things with this way of
eating.

Here’s Just A Few Of The Benefits:

First of all, I usually go to bed around 10 and wake up at 5:30.

Last night I wasn’t tired until 11:30 and I woke up at 4:30.I was INSANELY energetic yesterday, getting tons of stuff done and
wanting to move around all over the place. It felt awesome!

I was able to reach meditative states with a quickness, too. I can usually get there, but I have to concentrate for a little bit. I
got there near-instantly two different times yesterday, and was able to connect in a way like I never have before. I was even able to have a conversation with my deceased grandma. I’m still shocked it’s working so quickly, but I’ll take it.

(And for the record, I know stuff like that might sound weird to a lot of readers and that I might disconnect them, but it comes back to it being MY blog. I wouldn’t feel right holding anything back. And fyi, this conversation didn’t come out of nowhere – I’d been communicating with my “main” guide for quite some time, this was just a new development in the process.)

The next benefit is,

I Found Reason To Enjoy Internet Marketing Again!

I felt back “in flow” with Internet Marketing for the first time in a LONG time yesterday. I was getting thoroughly disgusted with
the whole thing and was strongly considering going back to school for psychology. When I got to Rio, Brian asked me what my goals were for my time in Brazil, and I told him I really just wanted to do some soul-searching and figure out what my next life move should be. I’d totally lost passion for I.M. – even a little bit for yayFOOD because all the non-action takers frustrate me.

Thing is, with yayFOOD, I do believe in it – strongly – but it’s just like… I don’t know, you teach people how to release weight, which is awesome… but the majority of people don’t want to go healthy after that, so they’re just good-looking unhealthy people and I feel almost responsible. I do think it’s great for people who want to release weight quickly and then go healthy once it’s easier for them… but I just feel “wrong” sometimes if they don’t.

And then the money-making markets… same thing with the non-action takers. I don’t know, I know everything I put out is high-value, but I still can’t help but feel almost feel snake-oily. I’m doing one last product on membership sites that I’ve been working on for a REALLY LONG TIME, and then I’m going to seriously re-evaluate what I want to do in that space.

With raw food, it’s different. I’m teaching people how to be SO MASSIVELY HEALTHY and do something that’s so amazingly good for their body.

Chris Brisson commented here on the blog yesterday about possibly doing a raw product together, and it felt INSANELY right.At first I thought, “I’d rather just give people the information for free” – but again, whole thing about people valuing what they pay for. And I need to make a living. And to be honest, I haven’t seen any comprehensive package of excellent quality in the raw food market at all. I have a LOT of ideas and this one feels SO RIGHT.

I quickly whipped up an outline yesterday and came up with A ZILLION ideas of things I haven’t seen yet – things which’ll really
help people make the transition. It’s going to be damn phenomenal.Guess that’s it for now, time to go make a smoothie!

  1. Congrats on taking the leap! I’ve been tempted to try the 30 day raw challenge myself but keep putting it off. While emailing back & forth tonight, a buddy of mine mentioned he was on day 2 of a juice detox… I think it might be time for me to find my juicer again…and just go for it. You think it’d be super easy for me to tilt raw as the wife is a vegan and I eat that way “most” of the time…but I’m a sucker for her killer black beans and other cooked food.

    Thanks for the inspiration and have an awesome rest of the week.

  2. Hey Rach!

    Been stalking your blog for a while without posting, hope you’ll forgive me.

    Now that I’m settled in Manila I’m back to my daily activities and projects with a 200% renewed energy!

    I’ve been reading about your raw food experiment and was wondering if you had any resource to share as I was contemplating going full body-detox to start this new chapter in my life on the right foot.

    Also, are you still in Rio? If so how long do you plan to be there for?

    Alex, who didn’t forget ;)

  3. I’m so glad that your raw food challenge is going well! I’m on day 19 of a 28 day cleanse right now… it’s been really good, but hard at the same time. :)

    I have to agree with Chris about a good blender, it makes such a difference. I finally caved and bought one after I burned through 2 cheaper brands. I don’t have the VitaMix, I bought the BendTec instead and I LOVE it!

    If you need more raw recipe ideas let me know and I can send some to you, I have a ton. Also, my favorite recipe book is Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen, there are some yummy things in there! Hope that helps!

    Becki :)

  4. I’m not surprised that you’re feeling good…I tried the strict raw food diet in January and I felt absolutely amazing for the first 7-10 days, and then I suddenly hit detox mode. I probably should have pushed through it, but that’s when I stopped.
