So, I've been 100% LFRV 80/10/10 (except 2 bites of tomberlies ice cream (raw) like a week or two ago) since the 9th of November and haven't even really been eating many overts. I'm still trying to up my greens (and fruit just a little), but I'm doing well and not losing crazy amounts of weight so I assume that I am not under eating too much.

I've been keeping up with it pretty well.
Anyway, the one thing I am really really hoping for is for my knee pain to go away. I don't know what is causing it but it seems to be getting worse, not better. I am kind of freaking out about it recently because my lifestyle does not allow for me to have a bad knee (or two) the way they have been. I don't own a car (nor can I afford one) so I bike everywhere, I stand all day at work, I like to run, etc.
My questions: Could it be detox? In your opinion do you think it is something that will get better, or do you think I should go to the doctor and figure out what it is first (the doctor is far away and I would have to take a long bus or something)? Should I try a water fast? Should I try banana island? Do I just need to eat more?
I feel like my body should have had sufficient detox time (though, I don't know that I really believe in the whole detox hype, anyway) by now to see SOME improvement. I tried running the other day and got about 3 blocks before my knees felt like they were going to buckle. This is making me want to cry.
