    Exercise: day off...slight heel pain and the back of my arms are killing me but it feels good :-)

    1.5 cups of coffee 1 cup with milk and tsp. brown sugar
    .5 cup with Silk soya milk only- no sugar

    1 optimum health bar
    3 peaches
    1 apple
    1 banana
    1 wheat bread slice w/tbsp. of Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter
    1 cup of Yogi dong quai tea- big cup with two teabags
    1 berry bagel
    1 glass of orange juice and seltzer water

    - I didn't eat enough today. The berry bagel killed off the vicious hunger feeling I had while on the road. Truck stop food is just disgusting to me now, not even the corn muffins or anything else is appealing. My last trip to see my mom I spent .75 total the whole way. Tomorrow I'm going on the road with my husband to his job so I'm taking some apples and peaches and a thermos of hot water with me.

    And here's something to think about esp. given some of my experiences with my mood regarding weight and food obession and my interaction with patrons in healthfood stores. I saw a little of this in myself for a while, the paranoia about weight and feeling guilt over not eating certain foods. I will work through this!

    M: A raw-foods diet will improve your mental health.

    R: In the short run, improvements in mental health (or attitude) are sometimes noted. However, it is my opinion/observation that the 100% raw diet is correlated with serious mental problems in the long run. There are a few (very few) long-time 100% raw people who are mentally healthy. However, it is my opinion/experience that in the 100% raw category one finds: full-scale eating disorders and/or extensive eating-disorder behavior, unbelievably hateful zealots, lunatics, and people who appear to display lesser mental impairments such as: emotional fragility--just challenge their diet and you may see this first-hand; juvenile behavior (denial of aging); extreme environmental views; turning their diet--or 100% raw--into a pseudo-religion; and so on.

    The topic of why so few 100% raw people are mentally balanced has been discussed on the Raw-Food email list. It is my opinion/conclusion, based on personal experience and observation, that a raw-foods diet does not improve mental health by itself; rather it simply brings your emotional/mental problems to the surface, where all the world can see them and you can work on them. This is a difficult (and unpleasant) experience for some.

    The bottom line here: If you follow 100% raw for a long time (years), I suggest that you take active steps to preserve your mental health.

    Mood: a little tired but happy.
