Well it is hard to know where to start. I'm a... Truther so to speak. I must admit I've been pretty closed minded and ignorant most of my life. In fact less than 4 years ago I was against gay marriage and thought lowly of vegetarians and vegans. Enough said...It sucks to say that was me but it was and I think I'm proof that relatively rapid change is possible. There is hope people!
Well, much has changed. I won't get into any other aspects here besides diet because I'm not sure if it is appropriate. If it is I'll be happy to write pages of rants, believe me. A few weeks ago I watched a few videos on veganism and realized how logical it really was to be vegan. I realized that I had been brainwashed to eat meat and dairy products even though the evidence proves they are extremely unhealthy to the human body. And besides the health aspects, it just seems morally reprehensible to me, at this time, to cause suffering to another living being for my own sustenance unless I'm literally starving. And ya, I'm pretty skinny but I'm not starving yet LOL I've found it cheaper to be vegan in fact. I quit smoking cigarettes around a month ago as well.
It makes sense, once I started caring about my own well being enough to quit smoking I started to consider the health and well being of others. And of course I further examined my own health and luckily found alot of room for improvement. Another mission of mine is to get as many (specifically) fluoride filters to as many people/families/non-government institutions as possible. Starting with my friends and family. I have no organization its completely individual at this point.
I found 30BAD through atlanteanconspiracy.com. His veganism videos woke me up pretty quickly. I recognize the HCRV diet to be optimal and I've been spreading the word to whoever I can.
So, I've been vegan since at least May 1st, 2012. Peace and Love to all who read this.

Please tell us about your dietary inclinations:
I really want to be HCRV and just need some guidance
Reading "The 80-10-10 Diet" by Dr Doug Graham is vital for succeeding on this lifestyle. Please acquire this book as soon as possible.
I will read the book
Are you Connected?
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I'm a tin-hat wearing conspiracy theorist nutjob. I want to find the truth and spread it to as many people as possible until the powers that be axe my existence like Gandhi, MLK, JFK, Abe Lincoln, William Cooper, Bobby Kennedy, Malcolm X, Michael Jackson, Tupac, ...and too many to name.
Seriously, I want to be happy and to spread this happiness to as many people as I can. I think these two are the same. The happier I make others the happier I feel. I know the changes I want to see in the world start with me, as Gandhi said.
Please list your website/blog/facebook/myspace etc
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?
Well...I've never been a good cook. And I am clueless on how to prepare raw dishes. I find eating even 15 bananas a day is really difficult because I just don't like bananas that much. The detox process has been extremely difficult, I've already cracked twice and eaten cooked vegan dishes. I could actually feel my energy level drop dramatically. It makes sense but finding the proof for myself was really eye opening.
I guess I could use some encouragement, some preperation techniques/recipes, and some tips on variety in fruit if that is indeed encouraged here. I really can't handle that many bananas at this stage in my vegan career haha. Thanks
