Hi! Well, I went full on LFRV this past Saturday.  I didn't have a transition period, I just went for it.  I have literally no support at home, rather tons of opposition, and would love to have people to talk to and support me with it.  I'm glad to be here with all of you awesome people!

That is correct many bottled water companies sell you tap water. If it doesn't say it is purified and how it is purified it is tap water this includes spring water straight from the ground with all the impurities including antibiotics, hormones, and other pharmaceuticals if you live in the USA. The Berkey water filter takes out the flouride with a special filter. No electricity needed it is gravity fed and can even clean mud water if need be. I got mine from Lekoma. Plastic bottles leach toxins into the water especialy if you leave it is a hot car. It also fills our landfills. Lekoma also sells sports bottles with the filter in that you can refill anywhere.

I just started the all fruit diet on Tuesday, so it has been only 5 days. I am already down 7 pounds, while pigging out. Plus I feel fantastic, and it seems to be doing great things, for my skin as well.

Yael - I am finally losing weight.  IT has taken months of transitioning.  I "needed" the cooked food for a while during this.  Now, when I do cooked, it is only a steamed vegetable.  But, getting here, for some reason, took a long time.  Maybe age, hormones, habits, damage.... (I am 47) I don't know.  But, I am finally almost 100% and feeling so much better and my body is releasing.  There is great wisdom here on this site and I have found it very helpful.  (Lekoma has been amazing - he is quite balanced and insightful!!  There have been others too)  What has struck me is that some get this from one day to the next and transition seemingly over night.  It didn't happen for me that way.  So, just hold on... there are so many ways of doing this.  I know the weight thing is very painful.  Try to eat as much sweet juicy fruit as you can.  Bring it with you everywhere so you are NEVER caught without food.  If you are craving, it means you are hungry.  Dieting has stifled that impulse.  So, it confused me in the beginning.  Now, I do what I am supposed to - I eat!

OH NO. I have been like 75-100% depending. I guess thats the problem. Mara and Lekoma thanks so much... I will let you know!!

I don't exercise and I'm losing.

Comment by Mara Cordova on May 2, 2012 at 7:29am

Yael, you'll lose that water and fruit weight going to the bathroom. :D

Comment by Mara Cordova on May 2, 2012 at 7:28am

Yael, no fear! You are working out every time you get up, and do what you gotta. Everything you do burns calories. Even SLEEPING burns calories. You need to drink more water, yes, and eat more fruit! I know it sounds counter to eat more to lose more- but think, the less fat you put in, the more of your fat you use. It just takes time. But every time you walk to the kitchen to get a banana, you're losing weight. :D
