Per a request, I’ve decided to prove that, once and for all, I do eat. I quit weighing myself, but I’ll weigh myself in the morning, write down what I eat all day, record my exercise for the day, and post it here so you all can see what it’s like to live mostly raw and almost completely healthy. I haven’t tracked calories before, but I can try to do that too so you can see the calculations and realize that I eat more than you think I should for my size. I’ll do this for you so you can join me on my journey. Enjoy!

Today I didn’t eat enough I guess. I’ve been aiming for 2000 calories, but like I said, I haven’t been counting calories. I’d eat more in the car, but I exercise when I get home. And usually I eat more for breakfast when I make a smoothie, so tomorrow will be better since the blender is clean. Smoothies are great for a raw foods lifestyle to pack in the needed calories. At dinner, though, I could have eaten another baked potato. I wasn’t hungry. Just wanted to keep eating. If we’re being honest here, which I am, I’m on my period, so that makes a little sense to me. Then I needed the brownie, but it was all raw, real ingredients. Either way, today was what it was. I eat all day long, I exercise, and a drink lots of water. I like to get outside and get some sunshine. It’s just good for the body. So what do you think? This is my life. I eat to live and not the other way around.
