Binging and back on raw

My sugar cravings have been getting silly and I am still struggling with giving up alcohol completely. I just feel very silly being so unable to stop despite the problems it could cause. On Friday we had some friends over and I drank 3 glasses of wine with dinner which is more than I should have had. The next day I had stomach cramps and the runs and felt crap.
I decided it was time to get sorted and move back towards a raw diet and stop the drinking completely. I had to get rid of the sugar cravings first so on Monday I bought croissants, brioche and a strawberry cake and stuffed all day. I got acid indigestion and aches and pains in my joints and muscles. Yuck.
Yesterday was day 1 raw, I need to be carefull with it and eat enough, so I had avocado, tomato, bananas, dates, kiwi, pear, apple, sunflower seeds, pine nuts and the most foulsome carrot and nettle juice. I also drank lots of herbal tea. I felt fine.
Today I have eaten similar things so far but have been hungry alot and rather gurgly. It could be that I'm still a bit bunged up from all the carbo on Monday and the fruit is fermenting in there. I don't know how raw I'll be, I need to eat enough to feed me, the baby and Gwilym, but I believe that done right raw is the way to go for great health. I have been 'baking' today and made raw spouted wheat and onion bread and flapjack. It is drying behind the wood burner at the momment. The weather has turned colder again so I lit a fire today. Hopefully the spring will be back soon I've loads of plants in the greenhouse that need planting out in the garden, all yummy edible ones!

Hi Suz! I just saw your post of RF and read that you are still visiting the 7 Day Forum. Thought I would check out your blog. Congratulations on the new baby and best of luck in your continuing raw journey. You can do it!

Big Raw Hugs!
