An RVAF diet seems to promote healing and cleansing throughout the body, and often-times promotes far more rapid cleansing than does even a raw vegan diet. It appears that the animal proteins and animal fats serve to rather strongly accelerate some healing processes and especially many cleansing processes. Although even raw vegan diets are sometimes known for rather violent cleansing reactions in the early stages, many RVAF diets are notorious for cleansing reactions which may be extremely violent and uncomfortable at times. However, the most common symptoms early in the diet are simply fatigue, sleepiness, lethargy and "heaviness".
I would not worry much about a lack of taste for raw red meat -- I would recommend following your own taste and instincts. However, I would recommend caution when eating raw pork unless you are absolutely SURE that it is fully organic, and that the pig was not fed junk (trash and waste) or rendered animal products.
Fatigue, tiredness, lethargy, and need for frequent naps are very common in starting raw diets, especially RVAF diets (those containing raw animal foods) and seem to be a reflection of the body's need to perform deep healing and cleansing activities due to the influx of wonderful, much-needed food (and the absence of harmful "nutrients"). The intensity and length of duration of these fatigue-cluster symptoms will depend largely upon the following factors:
I had previously (over the past 15 years) trained in and practiced several natural and energy-based natural healing systems which also induce powerful cleansing and healing reactions in the body, along with increased fatigue, and so I was not unduly alarmed at the gory cleansing or healing reactions, nor by the increased lethargy and increased need for sleep. One of my friends who has been on an RVAF diet for four years has mentioned to me that her first 2+ years on the RVAF diet were riddled with fatigue and lethargy. Aajonus took far longer, due to the level of damage and toxicity in his body; the same is true for Owanza, who is mentioned in his book We Want to Live.
If you have not yet seen it, you may wish to also read the accompanying article on this site on cleansing and detoxification reactions, also known as "cleansing crises".
