Hi there :)
I'm the new girl, and I'm taking steps towards this lifestyle.
I've been living as a raw vegan for a couple of months now with the occasional slip up.
I'm worried that this will be one of those things I set as a 'goal' and then not keep on track.
I purchased the 80 10 10 book yesterday so hopefully it will arrive in the next week or so.
I would really appreciate some advice/personal stories that will help to keep me motivated and on track :)
Have a fruity day!
Listen to your own body. Don't buy into anything that anyone recommends. As everyone is individual. Nobody knows how you feel when you eat/drink something. So if you feel like eating/drinking more/less do that. 80 10 10 is a great book to start. But if later on you will understand that you want to do something differently, don't be religious about 80 10 10 and follow your own thing. Good Luck!
Eat more fruit! Yum!
Wow, guys, thankyou so much for your replies!
I think the hard part for me will be re-programing my brain to not think that...
1- fruit makes you fat
2- to eat SO MUCH food in a day
3- when it's cold that I need a 'hot meal' etc
I am so happy I came across this website :)
Thankyou for your support!
Learn the health, environmental, karmic and fitness benefits of a vegan lifestyle first. If someone cant swap a hot dog for a tofu dog then they have minimal chance of doing 811 in the long run. Why? Well they wont have any real conviction and will be swayed by their family members/partner/co-workers etc.
'Hey, where do you get your protein?
Um, err, I dont know?
Well you need a steak then right?
I guess your right, thanks.
