4 Weeks - 28 Days LFRV - Paying the Piper

This has been a week I will not soon forget. Wednesday... I thought I would cease during the evening. I could not breathe, then sinus was clear, suffocating, then half relief. My head was absolutely pounding, and I was cold enough to shiver.

I seem to be coming out of it now... but experienced the following symptoms this week:
  • Dry itchy patches of skin on my hands
  • Nausea
  • Burning post defication
  • Excessive urination
  • Severe Chills
  • Fever
  • Powdery residue on left food around toe nails
  • Aches/Pains
  • Foggy Head
I cannot be sure this was prompted by the dental procedure, 4 weeks on this diet, or both? Likely the later.

I feel like I have paid the piper this week... 4 sure.

On the positive side I did manage to miss only 1 day of work, am starting to eat mono meals, and the weather is a bit warmer - allowing us to open the windows a bit more.

Eating mono fruit is easier for me if I consume a VERY LARGE salad in the evening.... thus far.. I have been using only lemon juice as the dressing.... it seems very refreshing to me and just what the Dr. ordered after consuming fruit all day.

I believe I may get called to see the piper again, but do believe it is part of the transition - likely am going just a bit fast - but am determined to 'make this stick'...

Best Wishes All... Make a Great One !


  1. Sorry to hear you were so uncomfortable, and working the whole time, too. Well, at the very least, you can feel thankful that your body was so productive in its cleansing.

    I did have to laugh a little bit when you said this might be prompted by 4 weeks on this diet. I know what you meant, but it sounded like you were saying that raw food causes illness. LOL! Wasn't it prompted by the decades of SAD food that came before it? :)

    You are doing so awesome, Russ. Your determination is an inspiration to me.


  2. Ha !!.. yes.. NOT caused by the LFRV..... certainly...

    I takess some of us longer than others.... I will get there... this year.
