Raw Food – Day 8

Raw Food – Day 8: Reintroducing flax seed oil and cottage cheese.

So today I started on the core element of the Budwig protocol again.  That is a mixture of flax seed oil and cottage cheese.  The point of this is to get the anti inflammatory properties of the omega three fatty acids into the cells that need them, i.e. the cancer cells.  There are a lot of big claims around this one, and I must admit to not being overwhelmed with the science.  However there are a large number of testimonials on the chat group that has most of the info on the diet so I am prepared to give it a go.  I have tried this twice so far with limited success.  However during the past two attempts to utilise the mixture I have had problems with digestion.  I am hoping this time that the raw food will improve my bodies ability to cope.  We will have to wait and see.

Totals for the day:

Calories: 1956 kcal

Calories from fat:59%

fat: 138g

sugar: 92g

Protein: 43g

Fiber: 41g

Stats for the day:

Morning weight: 65.5kg

Morning pH: Urine 6.8

Evening temperature: 34.0

Evening pulse: 60

Evening pH: Urine 6.8

General Thoughts:

Wow, how did that happen. 59% of calories from fat.  That is insane.  The answer of course is that on top of my fat cravings from yesterday carrying over I also had the FOCC mixture again for the first time.  This involves 2.5 T of flaxseed oil before I even start on the day proper.  So it is not quite as bad as it looks.  However it is not great either.  I didn’t feel all that well, in the evening and that night I did not sleep well.  Tomorrow I will endeavor to eat more salad type things and fewer nuts and oils.

Evening pH not great.  Will see what I get tomorrow.  Might be a result of the cottage cheese which is acidic.  Warrants more thought.

Mental Condition:

Going downhill.  With every day of slightly worsening condition I get a bit more despondent.  The draw of alcohol is growing again.  It is getting harder and harder to ignore my food cravings.  I need something to change.  Have changed my meditation slightly in the hope of improving things, not sure if it will work.  I am not far from just going back to juice fasting.  Now that I think about it it is strange to have the two extremes seem comforting, throwing it all in and getting drunk and ramping it up and only having juices.  I guess both are a form of self punishment.  Hmmm, an interesting insight into my mind.  I continue to feel melancholy after lunch.  Lunches tend to be more complex.  Maybe the secret is not the type of ingredient, although that may play a role, but the number of them.  Tomorrow I have planned a salad.  I will see if the same feeling occurs.

    I don’t know if this is at all something that would align with your current thought process or testing of how food impacts on your body, but would it help to have a conscious “treat” in each day? To have, for example, one glass of wine or beer rather than feeling like to have one would necessitate having many? Feel free to disregard this if it’s completely unhelpful, of course! If it is, then just take this comment as a whopping great hug. I’ll sing a gospel song for you tonight 😉 (Maybe one of the African ones that I can’t pronounce…)

      A solid idea for sure, and one you will be pleased to know I put into practice last light with a glass of wine. Its a good thing I didn’t have any more because I can not drink like I used to. One glass is totally my limit 😛 Thanks for the hug, it is very nice to get encouragement. Sometimes the blog seems to get a bit intense, but it is just me venting emotions that I used to keep bottled up, nothing to be to concerned about. In fact I really feel that the blog is a great asset, just wish I had started it earlier.

    Better late than never Jez! I would much rather hear what is going on with you, irrespective of whether it gets a bit “intense”, then have no clue how you are feeling and remain ignorant. I am very grateful that you are able to share your inner thoughts, already I have learnt a lot.
    Love you bro,
    Sam
