30 Bananas a Day!

Hi to all
I'd like people to join me in the effort of doing a survey on the 30BaD community. The idea is to know more about the profile of the people around here, and to link together different aspects, like the long term or the struggle with other aspects of life, etc. We can know more from both long term people and newbies, so don't be shy.
If you want to participate, you can answer the questions below either in this thread, or if you want to keep it more private, by private message to me.
I won't make the names of people public. I will use the data collected to put out different charts that will be opened to discussions. But for those charts to make sense, we need a significant number of people to participate, the more the better. So don't expect to get those charts before we get enough answers. And all profiles are needed, newbies, long term, having a good time or not, everybody.
Thanks

4-For how long have you been 100% raw? Or if not 100% right now, specify it and give your longest period of time 100% raw of your life?

I don't really keep track closely, but I probably have not gone a full month absolutely 100%. I make small exceptions probably on a weekly basis. The last time I ate an entire cooked dish was 1 or 2 months ago (nori roll with rice). The last time I ate anything cooked was a boiled beet and some beet greens about 2 weeks ago.

March 09 - January 10 --> 85% raw (all of these are rough estimates)
Jan. 10 - March 10 --> 75% raw
March 10 - present --> 95% raw

5-Regarding this period of time, what percentage of it do you estimate to be 100% low fat raw vegan?

Caveat regarding "100%," but I would say the last 3 months have been highly low fat raw vegan.

6-How old were you when you started 100% raw, or the longest 100% raw period of your life?

I started the raw thing when I was 23, and I'm 25 now.

7-Do you have a hard time staying on a low fat raw diet while 100%?

I would say NO - the biggest challenge for me is social situations / politeness, and this is almost always where I make my exceptions. But I believe I could do it if I really wanted to be a purist and be 100%; I'm just not at the point yet where it seems that important to me. I can see it happening in the future, though.

8-Do you get cravings for fat while 100%? No

9-How many days par week do you exercise? If this study, exercise is defined as a period of the day where one puts some serious/significant sweat out.

I've recently been increasing my exercise. So, recently - 4 days a week with significant sweat, 6 days if you count moderate sweat. But that's only been for about a month, hopefully I can keep it up!

10-How many calories do you eat of average per day?
2000-2500 I hope. I stopped counting because it's a pain, but that's my goal.


11-What latitude do you live at?
41° 41' 0" N (South Bend, IN)

12-What kind of environment do you live in: Semi-urban

Just for question 11 about latitude, Australia is between 12 south and 39 south, I know you move around a lot, but do you have a rough estimate of the average latitude you live at? More south of the country or north of it.
Both south and north! :)

South for summer, north for winter..

7- No unless I under-eat on fruit then high fat raw foods are tempting
8- No unless I under-eat on fruit
9- 5-6
10- 2500 or more
11- Hmm?
12- semi-urban but always changing
Thanks, I knew the 11 would be giving problems ;-) Just check my answer to DR above about Australia, and see if you can give an estimate.
Sorry Rawgasm, I will sound very negative to you, but I don't really like this initiative. Many reasons for that.
First, I want to give the option to anyone who wants to participate to keep its data private, and I engaged myself in not publishing names. Using Google technologies sure don't follow this principle.
So I would like you to remove this spreadsheet from Google, because I will be the first not to answer for some personal and privacy reasons.
Also, you "impose" answers and some questions, when I intentionally let them opened.
Also, you say you will publish the data, but you have no idea of the algorithm I have to check for correlations between different aspects of the survey.
So please remove this. Thanks
First, I want to give the option to anyone who wants to participate to keep its data private, and I engaged myself in not publishing names. Using Google technologies sure don't follow this principle.
I have made it optional to provide your name. I think its provide more privacy and control over your current method which entails posting your answers under you account name for the whole world to see.

Using a computer a information collection device provides anonymous to the user. The user can fill in the question withou leaking their name(they can if they want to) or worry about getting the 30bad police!

If you concern about privacy from google? I guess you don't use google as search engine? You filter out all analytics url? you don't use any of google service e.g gmail, docs, calendar, youtube,

Also, you "impose" answers and some questions, when I intentionally let them opened.
I edit to allow free answers

you say you will publish the data
Its just show the aggregated data in a graph format.

you have no idea of the algorithm I have to check for correlations between different aspects of the survey.
aren't u you going to reveal you algorithm? I don't think we should make this blackbox science?

all results can be viewd in real time @ http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewanalytics?formkey=dEU5WlI2bWNBLX...



If you insist i will remove it!
Rawgasm, I would like one for my cron-o-meter fun pretty please ! :)
Yes I insist on you removing this.
I feel really that it's out of respect from you, you did not even care about asking me anything about what I was trying to do, why, how I would do it and so on. And you took over it in a way I disagree for many reasons.
I have better things to do than to deal with this kind of bs.
At least did you see in the google page that you got a 123 year old 30BaD member? And no, it's not me trying to screw it up, I have better things to do.
So now, if you want to participate, thanks, please answer the questions I asked using one of the way provided. If not, fine.
Also, before calling for black science, maybe you should wait at least for some data to be collected before anything else can be started.
And btw, I personally don't see the advantage of a shinny pretty whatever. The shirt doesn't make the man.
