We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I lost 90 pounds in 2011 doing the 80/10/10 diet and and have maintained the weight loss since then. For the most part I have stayed 80/10/10 since the weight loss yet have experimented with occasionally having cooked food. I always come back to doing 80/10/10 as that's how I feel my best.
What is your gender? PLEASE NOTE: To enhance the community experience, profile pics of yourself are *REQUIRED* to gain membership. Membership will be declined otherwise.
Please tell us about your dietary inclinations:

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I like going on long walks and usually walk at least six miles a day. My record in one day is fifteen miles. :) I also do yoga daily and have recently started trying out Pilates.

I like comedies best. I enjoy reading books on this lifestyle and autobiographies of people I admire, especially comedians.
Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
Just having access to this site is a huge assistance to begin with. I think just seeing so many people doing LFRV is what I need the most. It's surprisingly difficult for me when family or friends get worried about my eating this way. I was macrobiotic for ten years when younger and that was much simpler for me to deal with in terms of people's reactions.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this

Dramatic Improvement in Thyroid Test!!! :)

Posted on March 11, 2013 at 12:25pm 20 Comments

I have had problems with hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's disease.  I never took medication for it.

In March of 2010 I had a TSH of 16.92.

I started the raw diet in January of 2011 and was 100% for a year.  In 2012 I did go off at times but still was high raw, ranging from 80 to 100% raw throughout the year.

I got tested again in June of 2012 and had an improved TSH of 9.97 but my T3 free and T4 free were lower.  T3 free was 1.54 and T4 was…

Chris Randall has a lot of great videos on this lifestyle on his website, www.realrawresults.com.

And he adds a few new ones every week!

I find watching his videos really helps me stay inspired and on track.  Some are on this site as well, but not all of them.  Check it out!


Durian served fresh outside in Manhattan's Chinatown

Posted on November 27, 2011 at 12:24pm 4 Comments

In front of Tu Quynh Pharmacy at 230 Grand Street there is a fruit stand which will open a ripe durian for you and put it in a container.  There's no seating area but you can eat it outside or bring it into your home or hotel if you dare, ha, ha.  I like eating it outside somewhere to avoid the smell while eating it and not upset my housemate by bringing it home.


Tonight I had some and I am in total heaven.  I bought the durian first and then a man opened it up for…


Bonobos in Manhattan closed :(

Posted on November 24, 2011 at 12:44pm 9 Comments

Sadly, they lost their lease and closed on November 20th.  I happened to go a few days before they closed and found out about it. 


It was a nice raw restaurant which was very reasonably priced.  I'll miss it!

I had understood that a cavitation is an infection in the jaw. That is why it has to be cleaned out. Now it is better to ask your dentist to explain you exactly. When do you see him?

At 5:20am on January 5, 2014, Loane said…

Thanks Diane :-).

I have heard several times that almost everybody who had their wisdom teeth pulled out has cavitations.... I hope your dentist will really find out what is going on. don´t hesitate to have a second opinion if you are not convinced by what he says.
