Hello! My name is J.R., I'm 29, and I've been a raw vegan for about 3 1/2 months now. I decided to join 30bananasaday after about a month or so of lurking around the website and finally deciding that I wanted to be a part of the HCRV community. A little about me and my diet: I have an intake of around 1500 calories a day. I know that's low, but it works for me. Like the posting says, over the last few months I've lost a total of 118 lbs., my type 2 diabetes is gone, my blood pressure is back to normal, my bouts with depression are gone, and not to mention my energy is through the roof.
Over the course of my life I've been on every single diet you can think of and I gotta say that the transition into the raw vegan lifestyle has been the easiest one of all. For me it wasn't a very difficult transition because I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired, and I knew that this was the right thing for me. It's great to be here!
Inspiring! Congrats and keep it up :)
Thank you Sunny!
Congratulations JR I would like to achieve something like this also!
Thank you Banana Dude!
Congrats :) Do you have before and after pics?
Thank you missfruitatious! I'll post some before and afters later in the week once I'm able to find some of my older pictures.
I always find pictures to be very motivating and inspiring. I have about another 40 lbs to loose, every time I see another success story it keeps me moving along this journey :)
I'm the exact same way. Whenever I read another person's success story it motivates me to continue mine.
Congrats. You're a boss hog! Keep it up, man.
Haha thanks man!
Thank you Kindvibe!
