High Raw Food Diet Challenge - Day 28
(Growing Raw Health)
I have energy and stamina.
The training time seemed to fly. Eating raw seems to have given me greater stamina as well as higher energy. That’s welcome when you’re on the mat practising aikido for five hours a day!
I was hopeful that eating raw would have strengthened my intuition so that I could also progress with the spiritual and connected side of aikido training. Unfortunately there is still so much I don’t get – but even when I speak to black belts who have been training for decades they say they don’t get it either... we all just keep practising.
We followed training with sessions of tai chi and meditation. During the tai chi visualisations I almost felt overwhelmed by the energy flows I was feeling. I was certainly dizzy. I had a similar experience when I tried acupuncture to induce my son – the acupuncturist had to pull out the needles quickly because the energy flows were getting overpowering. Apparently I’m a good candidate for that kind of treatment...
I ate even more fruit than usual, but unfortunately the numbers don’t add up to high raw calorie-wise. I did eat well, even though it wasn’t high raw. I was surrounded by fit, healthy people so even when we were partying in the evening everyone was still eating healthy food and moderating their drinking. Plus we all knew we were getting up at 6.30a.m. next morning to kick off the day with a yoga session.Day 28 High Raw Food Diet Menu
