I am 26 years old and coming back to being raw after never really getting on the right track last time, but now I have some new motivation. I hope to be about 85%-95% raw. The reason for going raw this time is infertility. I have some fairly severe hormonal imbalances, by doctor feels they are in part a result of too many phytoestrogens. Along with that I am have adult onset allergies to soy and dairy (two major phytoestrogen offenders). So I cant simply go to just a raw diet, its going to be a limited, and also difficult to plan diet. While somethings maybe typical for a lot of other raw foodies they will be off limits for me, things like flax seed, nope cant happen. Sprouts nope cant happen. Lots of fruits, veggies and other things will also be against the rules for me. I also need to plan to eat at least 90%-95% organic.
A little more history, in high school I was diagnosed with Anorexia Nervousa, and was down to 75lbs at my lowest. After therapy and diet training I found that my body could no longer handle certain foods. I became unable to digest any dairy, intolerant of meats and really unable to digest most prepared foods properly. However I didn’t let it stop me, I ate myself into sickness daily. I have been hospitalized numerous times for digestive track illness, had bleeding ulcers due to my bodies digestive issues and been on the brink of death with a kidney infection because my body was unable to process toxins effectively.
