Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I read a book called 'In Defense of Food' which kind of got me started on this journey of wanting to eat differently...then I was introduced to 'raw gourmet' by my sister in law, and since then I have been quite interested in finding out more about different ways of eating...vegan, low fat raw vegan, fruitarianism...and finding what is best for me.
From what I have found, I am most drawn to the LFRV lifestyle for many reasons...
1. Health - I want my body to be pure and naturally healthy, and fit.
2. Weight - I have about 15 pounds to lose still from my first pregnancy and I want to achieve this by eating clean foods, not processed diet crap...or restricting calories and being super hungry all the time and not enjoying what I am eating...
4. I LOVE fruit...I want to simplify my life...often 'diets', ingredient lists for cooking...even making raw gourmet stuff is so complicated...I want this to be easy and simple for me - pick up banana, peel, eat. I think that is as simple as it can get!

Please tell us about your dietary inclinations:
I would like to LFRV now and in the future...I hope to become pregnant again soon (this will be my second baby), and I want to be as healthy as possible to take care of my children and myself.
Are you Connected?
yes married
Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and 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 high fruit assistance do you need?
I am interested in following this lifestyle, but feel that I need access to more information, resources, support (real people who can answer my questions)...etc...
When I do become pregnant again, I am nervous about how doctors will react to my choice to eat this way. I want to make sure I am taking care of my body and therefore my baby's, so learning more about this here is of great importance to me at this time.

Thank you for your time and for considering adding me!

I havent weighted myself in the past few days because I dont want to know - but I am about 147lbs...and want to lose 15-20 lbs of fat

I ran for 30 minutes at a pace of 6 min/km average. (I also ran yesterday after not working out for a week and a half because I was sick...so I am finally getting back into it)

Today I ate:

1507 calories - all from fruit!!! yay! I DO know this is not enough, but I am having issues with a very gassy tummy (probably… Continue

147lbs...want to lose 15 - 20 lbs.

I have never been vegetarian, vegan or high fat raw before...just started learning about all of this a few months ago...

I wanted to try a 30 day challenge - to eat 100% 811...and I did it for 6 1/2 days...then it went all downhill from there...

I am so frustrated and mad at myself and I feel so pathetic...good grief - all I could do was 6 1/2 days before giving in?? I feel so ridiculous and so amazed at all of… Continue

145.2lbs - want to lose 15 - 20 lbs.

I didn't have time to enter my calories on nutridairy on day 9/10, but eating went well...

Yesterday was a struggle, but I stuck it out and again, eating went well...I think what I am noticing is that I need to eat more calories from fruit earlier in the day...my desire to eat cooked food and junk food come later in the day (after dinner), so maybe if I got my calories up earlier on it would help?? Last night at about 10… Continue
