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 :

Dinner: 1 kg mandarins
Water: 2 l
Sleep: 4 hours + 2 hour nap after work
Exercise: none (accidently slept in my workout)
Feelings: I feel a bit out of control at the moment. Not enough sleep, water and exercise. I think I need to solve the sleep issue first, then everything into place.

Feelings: feeling really good. I need to eat more fruit though which is quite challenging in winter. My bananas just don't seem to ever fully ripen, sort of get grayish before getting spotty.

Feelings: What an amazing day! Lots of energy and felt so good after having so much sleep :) The only challenge is that I'm getting a bit bored with the same food every day :/ I can't get different ingredients than I'm using now (unless I pay my arm and leg).
