I feel like hell today! Yesterday I felt so great all day, I was so happy and I ate my usual raw meals all day. Then in the evening my son told me that he wanted pizza for dinner. We went to his favorite pizza place and got take out. It smelled and looked so great that I had two slices. I ate them with a large salad, and while I was eating the pizza it tasted really good. Shortly after we finished dinner I felt like I had a huge rock in my stomach. I stayed up late to try to digest all the food I ate. I never felt like I fully digested it even though we ate so early.
With my usual raw meals I always feel light and good after I eat them, the opposite of how I was feeling after eating pizza. This morning when I woke up I still felt full, I drank my usual liter of water with lemon hoping that would help flush me out. I still feel like the pizza is sitting in my stomach I also feel very foggy. I stopped eating dairy so maybe my body is having a hard time dealing with such a heavy meal. I have always had problems digesting dairy and am lactose intolerant.
Before I went high raw I ate so much cheese and yogurt. I probably always felt really bad after I ate it but didn’t realizes how bad until now. Going without it for a long time and then eating it again made me realize that I should not eat it again. I know I will feel better by tomorrow, I’m back to my delicious fruits and veggies today.
I think it was good for me to go through this, it reconfirms that my diet is making me feel happy and good. The foods we eat have a profound effect on our moods and our well being. I will not look at pizza the same way again.
