I'm not incredibly wise in the ways of raw, but I would guess that you might be reaching for cooked food because you're not eating enough calories and/or fat to keep you satisfied. If you're elimating all cooked food, you really need to make sure you're getting enough calories and nutrients to keep your body (and brain) running. Not all fat is bad, and if you're trying to keep the fat low, really make it count, with small portions of flax or avocado, so you get something satisfying and creamy to appease your senses. More bang for your buck, if you will.
I'm sure other folks around here will have more words of wisdom.
I feel like I have spoiled cheese I'm my mouth? why is this happeneing?
It's your body telling you that it does not want want or appreciate what you have eaten/given it. In a way that is such a good happening.........it's just us not listening to our body and binging and eting wrong foods and suffering then doing it all over again.
maybe Being in a middle path can help you. if you go back and fourth not much is getting done, right? but if you make slow steady progress, this is creating positive, happy space in your life. i think we all have gone through this (in different areas of life too) and youll get the hang of it. dont try to do very low fat, if you find yourself eating foods that make you feel bad. alot of times when we react by eating foods that arent great for us, we may need something in them- minerals, vitamins, elements, etc... or we may want texture or taste.
Dont worry, youll get there
I have to agree with recycledsoul. Take it slowly and gradually work up to where you want to be. Going cold-turkey is too much of a shock on your system and is just asking for big hard rebound. Start with one meal a day and do that for a couple weeks or a month, then step up to two meals, etc.
Now that I include nuts and have proper equipment I find it much easier to stay 100%. If I have properly fed myself with raw I do not snack late at night (or anytime) and do not need to grab the SAD food laying around. It is not even a choice - I don't even think of it even though it is in my face. Now that is not to say I am 100% - due to recent surgery and allergy to antibiotics I have eaten SAD due to physical weakness and trying to quell the stomach pain caused by the antibiotics - but am getting better now so back to 100%!
You have to make sure you are eating enough calories, you do not have to eat lots of nuts and avocado to do this. I have found eating a lot of fruit for the first half of the day is the best and easiest way for me as too many nuts and seeds make me feel a bit weird and not at my best.
Bananas, mangoes, figs are good for extra calories, make smoothies and add greens and you will be getting lots of good extras too.
I think fruit and greens are probably the most important things you should eat as a raw foodist.
Just go raw, enjoy the gourmet foods a while, break the cooked food habits.
Once you do that - You will slowly need less and less of the higher fat foods. As you scale down, you will likely have peroids where you just want the fruits and veggies, others when you want the gourmet/higher fat foods, and you will reach a balance of what your body needs, not what your mind wishes to impose on it.
And if you do still feel the need to strive for the low fat raw - when you fall - at least reach for high fat raw vegan treats!
just for interest i kept track (relatively) of what i ate for a few days, and i don't seem to have a problem getting all the calories! i don't think it's high fat that i eat. i do eat sprouted grains, lots of veggies, fruit. coconut, dried or oil or fresh has a LOT of calories (holy smokes! i didn't really look at this stuff before! ) and fat, but you don't generally need much of it.
if you are transitioning, you could try keeping something like some cooked grain in your diet for a while, or lightly steamed veg or something if you feel that you will "binge" otherwise and feel badly about that.
i try to be as relaxed about it as i can at any given moment, and yet, be aware of how i will feel with the choice i make (physically, as well as emotionally). figure out why you want to go low-fat::: weight loss? stomach issues? maybe there is something else you can do to help that, and move from there.
The above responses are great suggestions and ideas to explore or implement.
You might also look into the effect of seasons/weather on your food choices. I've noticed that as the temperature drops (I live way up in northern Québec!), that I require more fats or denser foods (roots veggies, for example). It goes along the principles of eating seasonally. In the summer, I happily munch on mostly (if not exclusively) greens, fresh veggies and some fruits. I don't seem to require dehydrated foods or nuts or complicated dishes. When comes fall and winter, that D goes into overtime! lol
And of course, there is always the issue of emotional eating. A subject in itself.
