I know in the depths of my hear that 811 is whats right for me. I feel best when I eat this way and want to continue. I went 811 about a month ago and for the first 2 weeks I ate 100% and felt fantastic! My face got noticeably better and I felt happier and more energized. I had a little slip up 2 weeks ago when I went to visit my family and since then I have not been able to stay 100%. I got for a day or 2 fully 811 and then my head starts messing with me. I start wondering if this is right for me and "maybe a little bit of rice or tofu wouldnt kill me" etc. etc. I sound like my mother when that happens! Then I eat the damn food and feel like ****. Or at least not as good as when I eat juicy fruit. Another thing that happens is that when I'm eating fruit I start to feel an aversion to it. Basically, when I'm eating raw I'm wanting to eat cooked and when I eat something cooked I crave my fruit sooo much and wish I hadnt eaten the cooked food. I know that the latter is my true feeling. Why the hell would I want to eat something that makes me tired and lethargic? And, when I eat cooked its never animal products or fat. Its sweet potatoes, rice, tofu. This is food that these days most consider "healthy" but it makes me feel like s***.
I need some inspiration. Please tell me your experience, offer advice and let me know how long you've been doing this. I need you now dear friends, I want to do this but am getting discouraged. This back and forth action is wearing me out. Thank you for your wonderful support.
I would say, for this example, think of the cooked food as a drug, such as alcohol. You crave it the most after you have let it back into your system because as it is leaving the body it is calling to you! So with determination, push through the difficult withdrawl symptoms you are experiencing, and break through to the other side...to living foods again. Acknowledge the shadow, and then see the light! You can do this, no doubt about it :)
I love that approach! This makes it feel so much easier to get through. I've stopped doing so many toxic things like smoking cigarettes, doing drugs and drinking alcohol. I've never looked back because I know that they are just not going to make me feel good. This approach you offer Molly, makes so much sense. Thank you for your wisdom :)
Just posted a post/ lifestory of this exact topic! Be carefull! In my experience cooked carbs can be the difference between a zest for life and a desire to die! Also in my experience, once you step off the platform of safety and peace of lfrv....its a roolercoaster ride to getback on but so long as you get back on youll be fine. Also brandon cintron or someone else on youtube has a vid about fungus...ie cooked potatoes create an anaerobic enviroment which enables fungus to thrive in asymbiotic relationship kinda..and the fungus is capable of communicating with its host so it can stay alive so its actually not you craving certain foods bit a pathogen, microbe, fungus hijacking ur nervous system! Good luck!
Oh my goodness! :o
K so worse comes to worse just call it plan b...sacrifice the level of health, peace, happiness, love etc you took for granted as ur natural state regardless of diet but that were actually on the condition that you continued eating the foods which embodied those desirable qualities,do this for as long as you are willing to trade them for stimulating foods....wake up one day and realize how much more enjoyable life was when u were lfrv...and from then on cling to it like the floating piece of shipwrecked wood in this storm of a (perceivably, especially with nothing to float you) civilized lifestyle it is...
Worked for me...its like sooner or later we get so used to the effect of lfrv to produce heaven on earth that the feelings associated with hell on earth become so foreign to you, you forget they exist....but when not to long ago you were reminded how much the fire and the acid burn...the second time around you hold faster to and appreciate even more the earthly source of harmony and benevolence that lfrv is...
Saturate your mind with info and results obtained daily! Tim van orden, life regenerator, chris kendall, ted carr, frelee n harley, megan mcdonnel, kristina bucaram, etc... The saying goes....enviroment trumps willpower the fact is.....imitation is instinctual the reality is....a bunch of sad eaters all around us the solution is....expose n surround yourself with positive inspiring influences via youtube... its all about conditioning...maybe on some level you know lfrv as truth but on another youve been conditioned to somethingelse for waaaaaaaaaaay longer and waaaaaaaaaay more people still abide by that conditioning...but if u see a world class athlete like tvo, a disciplned disciple of seeking the truth dtm, and happy bubbly people all whos sucess in life and positive qualities have been ampkified if not brought into existence by lfrv....your bound to succeed! Be so inspired that you will become so succesffull as a result of this lifestyle you will inevitably cross paths with all those who helped you and are now your friends....and then you can be there for somebody else!...a sick tired unhappy young boy or girl may one day by chance come across one of ur vids and it could change there lives for.the better!.. Eat th ebest u can and be the best u can be for the sake of humanity if not for yourself! God nth euniverse will impower you with more willpower when your intentions to benefit are greater than yourself! You can do it!
I go through the same thing. For many years I felt BAD about it because I felt like I was failing. Now I realize that I am learning and growing and making the best of the many tests that come my way in life. Every day, I find a way to focus on the positive things I did, on helping others, on enjoying my life, instead of focusing on the small slips-ups or imperfections in my program.
Also, it really helps to eat a lot more carbs! Life is more fun when you're carbed up, and the cravings are a lot smaller.
I now stay low fat and vegan 100% of the time, and that feels great. I know I will feel even better at 100% 80-10-10 raw vegan, but I trust that is coming in time.
This is all so incredibly helpful. Thank you to all. Thanks Viktoriya for starting this.
