Failure to Thrive part 5

Hello. When I left off last, I had just finished eating cooked food for one day. This is a combination of raw and cooked food.

On January 30, after just eating raw food for the past three days, I weighed 120 pounds. That morning I ran a 5k race in 31:46. on February 6, I had been rating all raw for the past seven days, and I weighed 119 pounds. That night I ate cooked food. The next morning I weighed 122 pounds, and ran a 5k race in 33:25. I had some complications in that race, because my right calf started to hurt and I had to run slower than normal.

On February 14, I had been eating just raw food for the past seven days, and weighed 122 pounds. that night we ate at my favorite all you can eat Chinese buffet. The next day I weighed 123 pounds. On February 18, I weighed 122 pounds, and that night ate cooked food. The next morning I weighed 125 pounds.

One of the reasons I have been eating so much cooked food recently is the research I have come across. Most people cannot thrive on a 100% raw vegan diet. The minority that can, get great results in all areas of their being. It is a great short term diet, as far as clearing up some physical ailments, detox, and losing weight,however long term it does not seem to be the healthiest way to go. Most people will not be able to assimilate the proper nutrition from a all raw diet. they need some cooked food and some animal protein.

I know in my own case, My overall strength decreased, especially in my legs, and my running suffered. I will continue this in part six. Take care everyone.
