Starting on Mon 25th June (Australian) I will be hosting a 30 DAY High carb raw vegan challenge on my facebook page. Lots of people excited already, about 400. Join us! Please follow this link to the event page.
Watch my video to find out more --->
Remember if you are not on facebook you could still post your daily journal here. Here is the post from Facebook --->
Time to get your raw on folks! For the next 30 days, EACH DAY please come here and record what you eat, your exercise, water and sleep and encourage others to stay on track. This challenge is only for HIGH CARB raw vegans, 811-style. No superfoods or powders, salt thanks. Example is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtxFC4LHnKo
* Not only the joy of being 100% raw for 30 days but as motivation --> those who honestly stay on track for the 30 days and post here everyday (without fail) will get a free copy of my upcoming ebook!
* If you fall off the wagon please don't post about it here because it can negatively affect others on the challenge. Posts like that may be removed to help keep the high vibe.
* You must be 100% raw and post here EVERY DAY for the next 30 days to receive the free ebook. You *must* use the same thread day after day so I can read your journal. Journals that are all over the place cannot be accepted.
* Please set out your journal like this :

Lunch: 1 head of iceberg lettuce with 20 dates
Dinner: 1/2 jakfruit (med) and a kg of snow peas
(good to include calories)
Exercise: 10km easy jog
Sleep: 9 hrs.
TONS of food today:):
1 head romaine lettuce and 6 or so tomatoes
water: 2 litres
exercise: 15km run
Feelings: I kinda get supersleepy after eating...
Breakfast: Green Smoothie, Fruit Salad (620 cal)
Lunch: Strawberry Banana Smoothie (229 cal)
Snack: 2 bananas
Dinner: Raw Veggies w/ Tangy Scallion Dressing, Banana Ice Cream w/ Strawberry-Date Sauce (619 cal)

8 bananas (throughout the day)

Oops, I forgot the stats: 2013 cal / 86/8/6.
Water - more than 3 litres
Exercise - about to do 20 minutes of yoga to cool down
Sleep - not enough last night (6h30), I thought I'd be grumpy but I spent a lovely day with my friends.
Feelings - I'm really happy to be part of this challenge. It's easier than the previous 30 days because I was on my own. I'm also trying to take it up a notch and to weigh what I eat. I also have only organic produce now.
However, I've got a mouth ulcer, which is very unusual for me. Probably due to lack of sleep? Any tips to cure it? Thanks!
Good evening, see you tomorrow!
Hello beautiful people,
Day 3 : 27th of march
Bfast : 700ML fresh orange juice + 1,2kilo of oranges
Lunch : 12 medium bananas
Dinner : 100g black berry + 250g organic dried figs + 350g lettuce
total calories (cronometer) : 2900
Water : 3L at least
Exercice : None, rest day
Sleep : 10h
Feelings : A lovely day although I was at work all day, the more I sleep, the better I feel (:
Hey everyone! Hope you're doing well!
Breakfast: 450g cherries, 100g dates
Lunch: 500g papaya, 100g raisins
Dinner: 700g papaya, 100g dates, blended with 20g desiccated coconut
Water: 3L or so
Exercise: Walked 6 miles
Sleep: 8 hours
Kcal: 1825 (would normally eat more)
Feelings: More resilient than usual.
Notes: Not an ideal day, commitments meant I had to eat a lot of "convenience" food that was around - dried fruit. But interestingly, still absolutely no hassle - I don't seem to be struggling at all. If it continues to be this easy, after the challenge I'll probably just tell myself to commit properly to it. It's definitely the internal chatter that I have with myself when deciding whether or not to eat cooked/ processed food that's the obstacle - now that it's not here for 30 days, it seems much easier.
Breakfast: 3 Fresh figs and 2 medjool dates
Lunch: 3 Bananas and 3 medjool dates
Snack: 2 Oranges
Dinner: Zucchini pasta with a tomato and celery dressing (This didn't go down well :( )
Total - roughly 1500
Exercise - 20 minute jog
Sleep - 7 hours
Feelings - was sick all evening after eating my zucchini pasta, this happened before after eating zucchini so I'm pretty sure I must have some sort of intolerance :/ sad because it was so yummy!
Hello everybody ! Here is my DAY 3
Bfast: 1kg of watermelon
Snack: 3 bananas + 4 dates
Lunch: 1 cucumber + 2 apples
Snack: 3 bananas
Dinner: 4 tomatoes + 7 apples (as a salad)
Snack: 5 dates
Calories: around 2080
Water: 2 litres
Exercice: I've been running around all day, cleaning and tidying in my school (violin making school : last day before vacation) + 30 minutes bicycling
Sleep: 8 hours last night
Feelings: I've been feeling okay, but a bit tired. Also, I don't know if it's a very good thing to snack as much as I did today... Should I eat more during the meal times and avoid the snacking ?
1000 g Watermeleon
1650 g Honeydrew Melon
450 g Almonds
750 g dried figs
= 6479 kcal , but too much fat
Feelings: A bit filled up, but great anyway
Sleep: 4 or 5 hours
Water: just bit from water tap when during the day a few times
Wow, I eat almost 7000 kcal, how have i done that ? sounds too much for me.
Wait... what!? 450 grams of almonds! You know that would be 450 almonds, right? They're about a gram each. I'm guessing you didn't eat nearly that many. Also, 750 grams of dried figs would be somewhere around 80-100 figs... are you sure you've got the numbers right here?
Now, let's look at your recent totals:
Day 2: 1197 (waaay too low!)
Day 3: 6479?? (I don't believe this number is accurate)
Day 4: 1167 (waaay to low again!)
Day 5: 743!! (Now this is simply dangerous! This is anorexic, and you'll kill yourself if you keep that up!)
You're heading for serious health troubles the way you're going here. I don't mean to be harsh, but you need to hear this up front. You really do need to start eating more and you need to do it immediately. HCRV will not work for you unless you start getting 3000+ cals/day from raw fruit (get rid of all the almonds), and start sleeping more (aim for 9-10 hours, not 4-5!), and start drinking more water (you should pee 8-12 times per day and it should be clear).
OK final count for Day 3.
Total calories approx 2800.
Sleep - Around 10 hours.
Water - Around 3 litres.
