Detoxification or just paranoid?

I understand that transitioning to a raw vegan diet, I'll experience some symptoms of sickness due to my body dumping all of the toxins held by my fat when my body starts to detox to cleanse my body. I also understand that I'll lose some weight in the process of cleansing before I regain my wait. The only thing I'm worried about is if Im not consuming the needed foods I need while going through these processes.

I caved in and had some meat today. I experienced some more sinus pressure today as well. Im not really punishing myself because this is something Ive never done before. Mom says that Ive lost some weight and in her motherly nature, told me I should eat some meat. Maybe I should introduce a little more meat into my diet until I figure a few more things out about raw vegan needs. I'm considering trying 90% of good fats (omega 3s and 6s) with nuts and seeds since I have a fairly high metabolism.

I've spent a lot of time on youtube (unfortunately, time consuming) looking into hydroponics and sprouting. Sprouting looks easy enough. Sprouting Wheat grass but requires a little more work. Sprouts are high in protein with 20-35% and has 40-50% in carbs which is exactly what I need in the morning.

On a brighter note: my some areas have cleared up from acne and my skin is waay less oily. I've also noticed what when I have greasy/oily or high sodium foods that my mind becomes a little foggy. Actually, thats how it was all the time when I ate meat or canned stuff. So it goes to show that introducing greens into a diet will make a difference.

This toy looks fun but I dunno about a 100 bux. I've been brainstorming on how to make my own for a fraction of the cost.
