Since I'm still living with my parents, my mum wants me to eat cooked food sometimes... Should I still aim to eat 2500+ calories if some of that is cooked?Continue

Hello! My name is Flora and I'm an aspiring low fat raw vegan in high school. I've been raised a vegetarian and after dabbling in veganism for a year or so I pledged in November last year to become a committed vegan. I have never looked back!
At a similar time I discovered the concept of raw foodism. Always looking to improve my health, I researched it thoroughly and was eager to dive in - unfortunately my mother isn't as enthusiastic as I am, having suffered on a raw food diet in the past as a result of being unable to eat enough calories. Still I try my best to eat raw as often as I can!
Through my exploration online of raw food blogs and websites, I came across 30BaD, and Freelee & DR's sites. I was immediately drawn to the idea, hoping fruitarianism might be the lifestyle to save me. Since I was little I suffered from food intolerances, especially gluten, but since I was too young to understand I continued to eat foods that made me sick. Eliminating gluten helped a lot, but even with that and going vegan I'm still not sure what it's like to really feel properly healthy. Also, last year I suffered from an eating disorder where I was severely restricting my calories and even trying to make myself sick - I lost a lot of weight but my stomach always seemed huge. I've realised now that it wasn't fat, but bloating. I'm really hoping a lfrv lifestyle will help me look and feel healthy finally.

Plan! (and stress)

Posted on February 20, 2012 at 4:05am 2 Comments

Okay, so since going 811 when I'm at my mum's house is pretty much an impossiblity at the moment, I'm just going to be as raw as possible when I'm with my dad, which is about half the time (Mon-Wed at my mum's, Wed evening-Friday at my dad's, and alternate weekends). I guess I am going to have to start setting aside money to buy fruit for myself from now on, heh. I should get a job! I wish I didn't have so much stress from school.

Stress.. distress...

It's such a problem for…


teenage fruitarian...

Well, hello! My name is Flora, I am fifteen years old and I am an aspiring fruitarian... My family aren't entirely supportive - my father says "do what you like" (but still obstructs me by offering me cooked food and trying to get me to eat out!) whereas my mother just completely says no to me being a fruitarian. But I'm going to persevere and eat as much fruit as possible, while working on my parents to try to show them that I can and will be healthy on this lifestyle! I'm really hoping it…

Why hello! Thanks for your message- I can't remember when I added you, maybe a month or two ago?  So great to connect, we are a minority! Hows it going?  Whereabouts in the SW do you live?  xxx

 Hi Fruitcat, Its very nice to meet you. This whole plan is a process. Maybe after your family sees that you are doing ok and they do not need to worry about you as much. My family thinks it is a bit strange too. I am hoping to convince my family too. Good Luck!

Maybe you'd like it.

Hi, Flora, Thank you for accepting my friend request. I am only a couple of weeks older on this plan than you are. My reasons for doing this plan are as follows. I wanted to lose weight and not be hungary while I was doing it. I want to keep my health and have as few problems that way  as possible. I hate the abuse of animals that are our future food products. I will not be a part of that. I try to buy Organic if and when I can. We all need to support the Organic Farm community so the prices can come down. I am getting ready to grow a vegetable garden later in the Spring too to help my food budget. Anyway many people on this site have similar reasons and more. They have alot of information on this site for you to mull over when you can. I hope you enjoy the experience. They're alot of people to ask if you want to talk about your experiences too. Good Luck!
