Well, it seems that college habits have caught up to just an uncomfortable range. Eating out and the school cafeteria are the usual suspects.
I've maintained a consistently vegan diet full of fresh organic raw produce. However, the habits of college have caught up and I am noticing symptoms of sluggishness and weight gain. I'm looking to get back on the full living-foods lifestyle.
I've come to this forum in search of any particularly effective detox/cleanse methods. Herbs? Teas?
And any tips on staying raw?
I definitely feel ya on all that. Being in college and having 6 roommates that all eat SAD around me all the time tempts me!! I feel like almost every night I decide that "tomorrow" will be the start of better, more fully raw eating. I know that I feel best when I eat raw and I am trying to be patient and easy on myself and to listen to my body.
I also enjoy sipping on hot tea especially when it is cold out...the Yogi Tea brand is my recent favorite and they have a tea called Peach Detox which has a mild flavor...If I enjoy a cup of tea slowly, it helps me relax and get a feel for whether I am actually hungry or not. Their Meditative Time flavor is also yummy.
Good luck! Just take it one day at a time adding more and more raw until it becomes habit : )
