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 :

At least I only have raw foods in my house and no way of ordering take-out.

Replying to Dandelion, thanks so much for advice. I am following the hygienist idea that we spend the night eliminating and if we have anything in the morning all the powers-to-be of our body leave the elimination process and rush to digest what is arriving, so it's a good idea to leave it as long as we can manage, especially if we have things to eliminate, which is the case with me as i things went wrong after a long fast in February and very cold March, weak after the fast i started eating too much to handle the cold (not much heating where i was) and went on to total boulimia, it's a danger after a fast if it not handled right. I was eating a lot of raw but 1 cooked meal a day when i stuffed myself. Since the challenge things are certainly improving. I know i should not eat sweet potatoes and mushroom but at the moment it's replacing cooked, i am aiming at stopping them.
Yes perhaps i should eat more carbs, i will try. Thanks truly.
