65 years young and on a Low Fat Raw Vegan diet
(Sun Valley, Idaho)
I’m 65 years young and on a Low Fat Raw Vegan diet eating program (not diet!). I'm currently on day 22. I've gone as long as 3 months LFRV before, but always found an excuse (emotional) to go back to the old ways. Currently experiencing what I believe to be detox symptoms. Light headache, large amounts of phlegm, altered deep, raspy voice.
At the same time, I have great energy, no aches or pains. I am missing quite a few teeth which is tough emotionally (not from raw diet). Two areas of my mouth have been painful and sensitive but on LFRV have no tenderness/pain whatsoever, even though months ago a tooth broke off, and there's still a fragment buried in the gum. I use the feeling in my gums/teeth as a barometer as to what's going on in the rest of my body.
Benefits of 65 years young and on a Low Fat Raw Vegan diet
My gray/brown hair is turning browner. My nails grow faster, thicker. My singing voice changes, I can now hold notes longer, with more on-pitch/clarity.
Would like to hear from others new or relatively new to the LFRV, especially in regards to detox.
