"This is really great info. Since you all know so much, would anyone here be able to also share how the fat loss happens from the science point of view? I'm happy with my slow and steady progress... just like Danny I am curious.…"
"I made the mistake of eating tai food a few months ago- wanting to go out on a date with my honey and stay away from meat. I got some sort of vegetable thing with noodles and the next morning... Omg! I was swelled up everywhere. There were…"
"What I do, is I do my part. I am on mailing lists for petition sites so when something helpful to animals comes along, I forward it to my facebook page. I always forward things that have a petition to sign or a number to call or something that…"
"Well said! Not to mention we disguise most of it in language, too, calling it meat, steak, ham, bacon, etc instead of cow and pig. Except chicken. I wonder why people don't disguise that one. Anyway, well done!"

I first saw Freelee's videos on YouTube and thought "Wow! What an inspiration!" Then I started watching Harley, Michael Arnstein, Doug Graham, and I can't get enough. I been a calorie resticting yo-yoer as long as I can remember and an "emotional anorexic" because I could never eat without feeling like I shouldn't be eating. I have been mostly vegan for several years. I LOVE animals and I can't stand to fund their death and suffering by purchasing anything with meat in it. Giving up ice cream has been the toughest but after Freelee introduced me to banana ice cream, I'm over it. Yay!
I am a licensed therapist. I teach family relationship courses to male inmates in prison. I do goal achievement coaching for a personal development company. I do teen leadership trainings a few times a year in rough neighborhoods in the LA area. I have a small equine therapy program. I've written a couple of books to help people get along with each other better.
My overall fitness has been a struggle my whole life and what I am learning here really rings true for me. I'm so grateful you are here.
I've started the transition to HCRV but am not 100% yet. I do want to be.

Are you Connected?

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
Horses and animals. I have two horses - Fifo and Fancy. I also have a dog and four cats. I study natural relationship principles - instinctive stuff found in the animal world and help people translate and applies these to our relationships with each other. I like light hearted movies, nothing too stressful or dark. I used to read a lot but now mostly read health and wellness blogs or watch youtube videos.
