Hi all,I've had two failed attempts at 80-10-10 and am about to embark on another, much more realistic, transitional try. My husband has agreed to come with me this time, so I hope it will stick! But…Continue
"Have you tried making your own granola for cereal? There are tons of recipes and then you can dump the toxic Kix. I would encourage having him drink more almond milk-if he will-to get more liquids in him. Another great…"
"Hi, Amy. I'm sorry I can't add anything substantive to the discussion, but I had to write because I am so impressed with your efforts, especially the gradual lessening of certain foods by blending with different choices.…"
"UPDATE and request for further guidance:
We are one week in now, and doing really well. He's whining about grains/cereal/treats a lot less than I thought he would and he's not sick of bananas yet! His bms aren't too different yet,…"
"Thank you for your reply, and sorry about the delay in acknowledging it. He has been gluten-free for 2 1/2 years and casein free his entire life. I have been limiting even non-gluten grains even more for the past week. He's been eating a lot of…"
"I agree that as parents we should do the best we can and not make food a source of stress or power struggles. That said, I am surprised at how many 811ers think kids can't be healthy on a raw diet. What about this hypothetical day:
"I'm feeling good at about 5-7% fat, but it's still really early so I'm playing it by ear. Some days I do a few brazil nuts (I know, not really raw, but good for selenium), oil-free pesto made with walnuts, or hemp seeds. I really love…"
"I'm only 2 weeks in, but I'm also breastfeeding and I wanted to add my experience here. I've tried 811 twice before this and failed after about a week. This time I'm having no problem whatsoever sticking to it because I have been…"
"I am also a mom of a son with autism. Sadly up to fifty percent of children with autism experience persistent gastrointestinal tract problems, ranging from mild to moderate degrees of inflammation in both the upper and lower intestinal tract.…"
Well, Day 1 was a smashing success! Last night before bed I told him that we were going to eat fruit first thing in the morning and told him about how it would help his body heal and make his poops easier. He said, "In the morning,…"
"We put a tiny amount (1/16th tsp) of the chlorella in the smoothies/ice cream...it has a very strong flavor and you want to start with very little as it is dry and you need to hydrate it. Hope things are better soon!"
"Thank you both for your replies and suggestions. Cutting out nutritional yeast is going to be hard, but I think it's definitely worth a try. And I like the idea of making smoothie "ice cream." The chlorella's a good idea, since…"
"I agree with Greenmama! We stopped using nutritional yeast/brewer's yeast several years ago. One of our son's reaction was intense leg pains - not cramps - pains that wouldn't go away. We found that anything we…"

I have experimented with the high-fat raw diet in the past and have been attracted to 811 ever since reading about it 2 years ago. I am only now starting in earnest, and I would like some support on the transition and also in helping my spouse and my 5-year-old son embrace this lifestyle.

I would like community support for sticking with lfrv. I am also very concerned about my son's health. He is 5 years old and is on the autism spectrum, which carries with it extreme pickiness and major digestive issues. I would love some advice about helping him transition to a diet closer to lfrv (although probably with a slightly higher fat intake, from what I read) and I hope to cure his chronic constipation/dehydration/general elimination concerns. I hope that this change in lifestyle will also have positive impact on his attention/communication/cognition.
