Bottomless Pit

My stomach has been a bottomless pit for the past three days. I can't even think about all the food I ate today:
1 mango
1 apple
1 small banana
small container of mixed melons
Handful of raw almonds
Spinach, avocado, tomato, cucumber salad
Chocolate coconut LaraBar
... and the day is only half over. Now that I write it down, it doesn't seem like a huge amount, just more than usual. It just feels like I have been eating non-stop today. It has been 5 full days of eating 100% raw but my body seems to be craving something warm. I have been really cold over the past 4 weeks. My mother thinks that it is from the lack of fat on my body. It is amazing to see how my body changes from this way of eating. I played sports all through high school and also played lacrosse and rowed crew in college. I have always been very muscular and kept up that physique for two years after college. I am now 24 (turning 25 next month) and have a completely different body type than I did a year ago, even maybe only 6 months ago. I am still strong, though not nearly as strong as before, but am not nearly as bulky as I used to be. Clothes from a year ago fall right off. It's crazy because I eat whenever I am hungry now and have so much more energy than when I was playing sports.
I also wanted to mention that I have been doing different cleanses over the past 7 months. I started out with a colon cleanse, then a liver cleanse, and now I am on a candida cleanse. I would suggest doing no matter what type of food you eat.

Aren't LaraBars the best? I eat them all the time. They seem to be the only snack bar / energy bars on the market that are truly healthy.

I'm really enjoying your diary!

Another health bar that is actually raw and organic is called ThinkOrganic:

I am not on a raw food diet but do enjoy raw foods. I love your journal!

I've seen those around. I will have to try it out sometime soon. Thanks!
