8 Days Raw: Sometimes I just need a piece of chicken

I’ve always loved food — maybe a little too much, hence my extra weight.  That became apparent on nights 6 and 7, all I could think about was having a piece of chargrilled barbecue chicken.  I mean I could just taste the burnt hickory smoke grill marks and the fabulously sweet and spicy jerk barbecue sauce I make myself.  I even thought about what pieces of the yardbird I would grill — wings and thighs.  But alas, I thought it was important to stick to my regimen to witness the full benefits of raw food.  But I also think my body was screaming for some extra fats and calories.  So I did what I never thought I would be able to do —  I sat down and had a real conversation with myself about my food choices and why I was doing it.  I figured if I was going to go off the regimen (refuse to call it a diet…) for a few moments, what would be the smartest way to do so.  So I went to my favorites!  I made a nice salad with 2 avocados and about a 1/2 cup of chickpeas.  And that was all I needed!  I was full, satisfied, and no longer thinking about that chicken!  So sue me for eating some boiled chickpeas, but I figured they wouldn’t be so bad.

And oh yeah, just in case you were wondering…  I lost a whole 10 pounds in about a week!  I can hardly believe it myself!
