Feeling discouraged. How do you guys do it? I can't eat enough calories!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lotusblossom Feb 7, 2012. 21 Replies

I've been trying to stay HCRV for a couple weeks now, and it has been so hard. I never get enough calories. On top of that, I'm pregnant and breastfeeding, so I really NEED to start eating enough. It…Continue

The persimmon vendor at the farmers' market told me NOT to let them ripen! Huh?

I never liked persimmons, always thought they tasted like cardboard. After reading more about them here on 30BaD though I thought that maybe I had only tasted underripe ones. So I decided to give…Continue

Anyone else getting bored with winter food?

Started this discussion. Last reply by noelle kells Feb 3, 2012. 15 Replies

So, I've only been 811 a few weeks, and not quite 100% at that. I did eat tons of fruit and was high raw before though. I live in central California, where we are fortunate enough to have year round,…Continue

Hi Everyone!This is my first post here, so please be gentle! I've been nearly 100% vegan for 5 years, and I've dabbled in raw foods that whole time. At the beginning of this year, I decided to go…Continue

Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I'm 23 years old and have been mostly vegan for almost 5 years. I've been dabbling in raw foods for most of that time as well. I'm married to an amazing man and we have a 14 month old son together. My husband and I decided to go 100% raw at the beginning of this year, and I'm very interested in 811. We want to transition our son to 100% raw eventually, as we become more accustomed to it. We do well most days, but have been falling off the wagon lately. I also found out I'm pregnant again (YAY!) just a couple weeks after starting, so that makes things extra difficult, especially in staying 811. Even "allowing" myself a slightly higher percentage of fats has been extremely difficult for me. I hope the awesome community here at 30BaD can give me the support I need to maintain a mostly 811 pregnancy. I'd also like the opportunity to share my experiences.

I'm pregnant and breastfeeding right now, and just made the decision to go raw a couple weeks before finding out about my (current) pregnancy. It's been difficult to stay HCRV, as I've had intense cravings (especially for eggs, which I've now eaten during both of my pregnancies). I really really REALLY want to have the rest of this pregnancy be 100% raw vegan and mostly 811, but I don't know where to begin!

Welcome to 30 BAD!  I saw your post on Fruititarian Caits Video.  

I believe that a good baking soda without aluminum can help with the tooth brushing if you're feeling squeemish about NOT tooth brushing.  

This site has a good aluminum free baking soda that you can use.  http://earthshiftproducts.com/
