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.

feelings: I really didn't intend to eat that late and during the run near the top I nearly passed out from so much exertion and not enough food! I hadn't eaten in like 19hrs which is crazy. It wasn't planned just turned out that way, I don't recommend it!
This no salt challenge hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be! Having everyone here sharing their journals has been really awesome :)

Unfortunately my computer nearly crashed and it took me all that time to mend it, understand what was wrong with it as i was also doing our accounts at that time. I am glad to say that i am still on raw and very happy. I think my stomach is getting a bit smaller, which is nice as i tend to be a bit boulimic. I can't finish my salad these days, I start feeling full half way through it, perhaps i am becoming more and more fruitarian mainly ?
Anyway today i ate :
Peaches in the morning + a few loganberries and blueberries from the garden.
Apples, pear and romaine blended half speed smoothie
Bananas, grapes and blackcurrants (from the garden) fruit salad
Tea : Vegetable salad with heart of romaine, tomatoes, brown mushrooms, courgettes, cucumber and tomatoes
Dinner : romaine and carrot smoothie.
Sleep : enough
I have been eating roughly something like that every day apart from saturday when i was doing a stall selling vegan food and giving away leaflets relating to the subject of veganism and the suffering of animals and the delapidation of the planet due to people's diet, I was a bit tempted by the chocolate cake and cookies and pizza but not that much, it is such a pleasure to be raw, it has stopped being such a sacrifice. I also cook a vegan meal for somebody every day and that does not tempt me either.
Also, after months of seriously rotten weather, the sky has finally cleared up and it is brilliant sunshine, what a pleasure!
I will be delighted to carry on for the August challenge. Love to all
