Raw Food Detox

Today is the fifth day of my July Raw Food Challenge. I have eaten a raw food diet before for a short period of time. The biggest difference I see this time around are the detox symptoms. I did lose weight this week (4.6 lbs) but parts of my body are covered in red rashes. Apparently, it’s a common symptom  that I never experienced before. I had fatigue and headaches in the past but watching myself breakout like this has been jarring. I think because of my psoriasis the thought of my body being covered in something I can’t control unnerves me.

It doesn’t mean I will stop. I am telling myself that it will go away in a matter of days. I just have to wait it out. I am holding onto the benefits and staying excited about my results at the end of the month.

Your turn:

Have you ever experienced any detox symptoms? If so, how did you cope with it?

  1. I have experienced skin rashes as part of my detox. When I first went vegan I would get itchy patches on my arms and torso and now occasionally if I get something with milk or cheese in it that I didn’t realize. I think the body continuously detoxes perhaps at different levels as you eat cleaner and cleaner.

    1. I think so, too. The itchy bouts and rashes have started to calm down. Thank God!
