Hello everyone. I'm a Fruitarian living in New England. I started changing my SAD American Diet back in early 2007. I ended up going from vegetarian straight to fruit (with a few regressions) in…Continue
"Hey folks, glad to see people are still joining this group. CT is boring so we don't have much to talk about but spring is (maybe?) around the corner. I hope to finally get my butt over to New Generation this spring."

I began experimenting with a vegetarian lifestyle back in 2006. I had become fed up with my weight and wanted to be healthy and happy. It lasted about 10 months and then I slipped back into the S.A.D. In early 2007 I once again began to cut out all processed foods. I gradually began to eat healthier, while at the same time researching different diets as well as human nutrition in general. In 2009 I discovered Fruitarianism and it clicked with me. In early 2009 I began an all-fruit diet and I lost 60 pounds. In the following 2 years I slipped back into bad eating habits and now at the present time I am back to fruit and some vegetable juices. It's been a long, rocky road!

I'm HCRV already
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 may read the book at some point in the future

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?
Help me connect to other LFRV people. I feel alone where I live and I do not have much support. Only a few close friends accept my diet.

I will comply because I like totally agree with all this
Yum I have never had dragonfruit! nor jackfruit! I wonder if there is any way to get those here? I had my first cactus pear over the weekend that I got at a asian market, it was soooo good (but seedy lol). Enjoy your travels! :)
Yup I finally found it : ) And I am excited to take the plunge. I am going to give it a serious go. How have you been? Did you make it to the fruit festival or to see Durianrider tonight? I was not able to make it :(
I saw your comment on the Before and After Video. Hey, it sounds like you are kind of fed up (excuse the pun) with the whole materialistic American lifestyle. The person who dies with the most toys wins is a load of you know what. That is not what life is about. A lot of times when I start hating certain parts of my life, all I need is a new perspective. Sometimes though, I need to make a change in my life. If your job has you hating life, and it is really your job and not just your attitude, if it is going nowhere fast- find what you love and chase it! TAKE RISKS, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE? LIFE IS TO SHORT TO WASTE TIME NOT LIVING IT!
Yea, I do tell it like it is. You've had ups and downs, join the club. You've had failures, times when you got off track. You are HUMAN, it's part of life.
I really hope you find what you are looking for and love your life. Good luck and God bless. :-)
