I have been researching raw food diets quite seriously for the past 3 months. Prior to this I ate what I considered a healthy diet - lean meat, low fat dairy, fruit and vegetables. Fruit was very minimal though, as when I first joined the gym 3 years ago I was told not eat fruit, too much sugar it will prevent me from having the shape I want, this really scared me off fruit for a long time.
For the past few months I had been incorporating raw food into my diet with the exception of meat at dinner (please don't automatically hate me I have progressed from here) I was eating a massive quantity of raw nuts and I was feeling really down on that diet, whilst everything (apart from the meat at dinner) I ate was raw I was always hungry and sometimes I'd make nut bars or something similar for the week and I'd honestly eat the entire batch in one night and then feel unbelievable s***. I was constantly obsessing that I was going to put weight on and feeling as crap as I had before I went on the diet and deep down I knew it wasn't working for me. I found 801010 via durianriders facebook page which my personal trainer had 'liked'. Almost instantly I was interested and spent hours researching this diet and watching heaps of HCRV youtube videos. I am now to the point where I have decided I want to do this diet and I have committed to HCRV however I have only been on it for a week, but no meat! or animal products! & I'm really determined to stick to that, I"m actually finding not eating meat quite empowering I feel really good. I've also been researching the ethical side to veganism which has always affected me, from a very young age I told my parents I wanted to be a vegetarian and they refused to let me, drilling into me that the body needs meat. From then onwards I've been ignorant, chosing not to think of the fact that the meat on my plate was once an animal, I would just think "it's a product just like bread". Now I've really been thinking about the animals I ate, I really want to stay away from meat and animal products completely.
In regards to this diet, I'm finding I really struggle in social situations though where eating fruit isn't quite accepted as normal. I feel as soon as one of my friends invites me somewhere like to coffee or buys me an easter egg I feel really rude to decline even though I don't want to have diary, that's really my struggle.
My partner, who I live with, doesn't follow this diet so I always have non-raw food and meat in my house so this potentially creates a struggle sometimes but he's extremely supportive of my diet choice and most times keeps me from eating foods which aren't raw (even before 801010)
I really wanted to join 30BaD because I thought this could be a place where I can soak up more information and inspiration from others who are on this journey & hopefully each and every day I will become more disciplined to this lifestyle and one day be able to inspire someone else to change their life and open their eyes to fruit.

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw 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 HCRV assistance do you need?
I really struggle with social situations and maintaining the HCRV lifestyle. I feel hugely disappointed in myself but I really struggle to say no. I have this strange feeling that I feel like I'm letting them down if I say no to coffee and that I'm making their life difficult because of my diet, I really want to change this way of thinking. If it's me out by myself I don't care it's my choice but if it involves someone else I feel like I burden them to find something which suits me. I watched one of the tv interviews on youtube where harley was asked 'what if all your mates went to pizza hut for dinner' and his response was 'I'd take bananas'. I really want to have that attitude to social situations.
