I have been eating a Citrus Diet for just over a month.

Thanks to reading an email from raw vegan health coach, Life Regenerator, Dan McDonald, (and having a personal consultation with him).

I have been eating a variety of grapefruit, oranges, tangelos, kiwi, and tangerines (with a few times, snacking on fresh blueberries and strawberries), and drinking lots of water with slices of lemon, along with one or two cups of herb tea each day.

The results have been astounding!

2 cup fruit bowl. Raw grapefruit, orange, and tangerines (and Puradyme digestive enzymes).

I have gently released 12 pounds! The weight loss has been very easy. And I have had no cravings (not that I ever have many cravings anyway). Still, I noted my thoughts and feelings when I thought to head to the kitchen for anything.

My BRAIN is definitely functioning better, and my skin continues to clear and feel smoother.

Overall I am noticing that I’m:

  • Less moody
  • Have better clarity
  • Got more stuff done
  • Feel more confident
  • Feel more hopeful
  • Feel more purposeful
  • Moles continuing to flake off
  • Face has stayed clear
  • Feel more vibrant

I want to continue eating this way! One day at a time though.

I have begun to eat raw vegetables for dinner (celery and avocado with Mrs. Dash as a seasoning, and salads with raw Vegan Ranch dressing from The Raw Food World). I also tried Parma vegan parmesan as salad garnish and am enjoying the new flavor and texture it adds.

I did eat in a restaurant a few days ago with a friend and enjoyed a seaweed salad and small amount of sushi fish. I have also had some basmati cooked rice a couple of times.

Next, I have a couple of papaya days planned where I will simply eat ripe papayas for all 3 meals (or as needed) for both days! That should be fun!

And for those wanting to learn about who Dan McDonald is, here’s one of his latest videos and there are links to all his stuff in the information part of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eZWCavVMGs

Maybe I will become a fruitarian? I do love avocados—even alone, without any rice or celery. But one of the reasons I am doing this is to detach from things and question my motives. It’s a spiritual journey.

Curious how it goes?

Stay tuned!
