Do you sometimes get jealous and wish you could eat junk food like everybody else? Occasionally that happens to me. Eating out with friends, picking up Taco Bell for the family, looking at the junk food in the breakroom... Sometimes self-pity hits for a minute and I wish I could be carefree about what I put into my mouth like everybody else seems to be. Some even seem to get away with it and stay slim and look happy.
But then I realize that it will catch up with everyone eventually if it hasn't already. Why else are chronic diseases on the rise - like diabetes (type 2 mostly), cancer, obesity, allergies, etc. I even read an article recently about how the high starchy carb diet is the main cause of macular degeneration. Most people my age are taking statins or betablockers or some other legal drug. I am taking insulin, true. But my doctor wanted to put me on statins also at one point, no longer.
So, then I snap out of my momentary self pity and realize as a raw foodist (being lucky enough to discover and enjoy this lifestyle) I am enjoying life as a whole and the tastes of 'real food' much more than most people.
