Raw Food – Day 7

Raw Food –  Day 7:

Raw food now just seems kind of normal.  I don’t think I will stick to 100% raw for the rest of my life.  However 80% or even 90% is very likely.  Just because once you get into the swing of it it is very easy, and in the end I do feel healthier.  pH seems to be improving daily and weight is going up.

Tomorrow I try the cottage cheese and flax seed oil mix again.  I have had a checkered past with this one.  Many people claim it has lead to great improvements for them, however when I tried it before it tended to give me digestive problems.  I am hoping that on the raw food diet I will tolerate it better.  Yesterday I started iscadore injections again and I have also started eating apricote kernels again.  It is time to throw everything at this, as much a I would like to test everything out scientificaly I suspect I just do not have time.

Totals for the day:

Calories: 1974 kcal

Calories from fat:46%

fat: 110g

sugar: 121g

Protein: 43g

Fiber: 43g

Stats for the day:

Morning weight: 65kg

Morning pH: Urine 7.0

Evening temperature: 34.8

Evening pulse: Not measured

Evening pH: Urine 7.2

General Thoughts:

pH is amazing.  I have never had a morning pH in the high 6’s let alone 7.  Maybe the morning pH has a lot to do with the food eaten the night before.  A light meal of salad and not much fruit will give a more alkaline pH than a heavy one. Who knows.  But I will certainly take a morning pH of 7 and be happy.

Have gone a little bit overboard on the fats.  Not sure if this is going to be a problem.  However it has to be noted that I am having cravings for fats when I eat them.  This might be due to my undernourished state.  Or it might just be that it is a reasonably steady state of human nature to crave fats.  Or it might even be something that passes with time.  Who knows.

Mental Condition:

A bit all over the place.  The continual lack of progress and even signs of worsening condition are hard to take.  It is very easy to tell yourself that this is a process, and that it takes time, but it is very hard to stay calm.  I guess there is no solution for this, and in the end one just has to accept how you are feeling and live life anyway.  Take the small victories and acknowledge the losses.  It is a braver man than I that can go through all this with a smile on their face even when facing the prospect of a slow decline unto death.

    Hey Jerome,
    I’m happy to look it up, but if you have time, can you tell me why the pH is important?
    Love, Cristi

    Jerome! I’m sorry, I thought I’d added you to my google reader, but clearly I did something wrong, as here you are posting regularly, and I’m sitting at my computer thinking you haven’t at all! Fiddlesticks! I’ve got some catching up to do 🙂

    I think it’s amazing how wonderful you are at looking at the world from a positive light and giving everything your all. It would be impossible not to have moments of frustration, doubt, and anxiety, but you’re absolutely right about living life with a big a smile as you can manage at any one time – even if, sometimes, that smile feels smaller than you’d like. I’m in awe of you.

    P.S. So sorry I haven’t sent you my raw food blog ideas, either! To be honest, most of the ones I read are very recipe focused rather than health-data heavy: Choosing Raw, Rawmazing, Girl on Raw (love her, she’s a good friend of mine), Almost Vegan (another lovely friend of mine), there’s also ones like The Sunny Raw Kitchen that I read far less regularly – I recommend going through their blogrolls for other ideas?

      Haha, probably my fault. I somehow started two blogs and gave everybody the wrong address. The other one still gets a few hits a day and they don’t seem to bounce over to here >:| Thanks for the tips, I will check those out. Meanwhile your blog is reminding me how good Melbourne is, stop it 😛
