My friend is gone and staring today, I am back to raw! I am guessing I will have to go back through detox again for a bit, but it will be worth it. I hate cooked food. To be honest, it is not as good as I remember it and I always feel like shit after I eat it now. In preparation of me moving to San Francisco, I am going to be doing research on raw restaurants and grocers there. I will be posting links very soon.
So I have not been doing raw for the past week because I have a friend visiting me from out of town. I feel bloated and gassy all the time, my skin is braking out like no tomorrow, and I have never been so itchy. I love the person who is staying with me right now, but I am glad that she is leaving soon so I can go back to being raw.
Also, I just found out that I got into school in America. Yeah! I have loved my time in London and defiantly want to move back here for my masters but for now, some fun in the sun will do. One of my concerns about America is that whenever I have vacationed there, I have never felt good after I have ate, even if it was just salad. America has such a bad reputation when it comes to healthy eating, but I am moving to california where they seem to be more open minded and a lot of raw food bloggers/chiefs live.
I went to Dr. Brian Clement talk on Sunday and it was very disappointing. I was there for 2 hours and then left early feeling a bit insulted and that I had wasted £27 and 2 hours of my life. From the way that he talked, I could have never guessed that he had his phd. And for some one who spent all that time in school to get a phd, he made it clear that he thinks that people should not go to school. He kept on repeating that school is useless, teaches you wrong thing, limits you and turn people into destructive humans. I found this a little ironic, seeing that people are paying him to gain knowledge and get taught. He also made it very clear that he is against religion and who ever believes in God is limited and basically a dumb ass. I left after almost 2 hours and in that time he had managed to insult any one who goes to school or believes in God, talk about how one can cure AIDS and cancer by getting rid of their sorrow, and did not once mention nutrition or talk about the raw food diet. What the fuck?!?! I wanted to be enlighten on being healthy through the raw life style, not join some listen and do everything I say and you life will be bliss cult. At the end of the day, I think Dr. Brain Clement is full of shit and should go back to school and pick a different career.
