"Oh, yes it is. However, since I wrote this, I realised that actually what purports to be a science degree is really nothing more than getting credit for reading diet guru books that are for the most part just a repetition of previous diet…"

"Ya Mei, when I cook food, I normally steam them as minimally as possible. Oils and salt are big no-no's from a health point of view. Salt is nothing but toxic to the body and should always be avoided. Oils (except those…"

"Well done, Dovima. As long as you have a useful option, there's not much point of upsetting someone who can do little about snoring. If you run out of options, you might have to change your game plan.
I hope you enjoy the retreat…"
"Lori, It seems that bad news abounds at the moment and you seem to be stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place. You need to be fasting to heal your knee and your depression and help control your weight but with your history, I…"

"Lori, don't eat unripe bananas or any other fruit as they will upset you internally. It's not worth it. IMO, it's better to buy in some frozen fruit from the supermarket (fairly cheap) than to upset your system."

Hi! I'm a relatively new Natural Hygienist and transitioning to LFRV. Currently I'm a fruitarian by day and cooked food by night but that's due to the problems I'm having adjusting to the all raw lifestyle. I'm here because I'm searching for the answers to these problems. I watched several of Michael Arnstein's videos today as well as umpteen blog posts and he strongly recommended joining 30BaD for advice and support.
I've been reading up on the science behind fruitarianism and am fully convinced that it's right and right for me. Hopefully 30BaD is the missing link between where I am and where I want to be.
C'Mon ya'll. Please let me in!

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?
I suffer from two problems that are making LFRV difficult: the skin on my hands is constantly cracked and bleeding making life almost impossible at times. Moisturizing sometimes helps and eating cooked foods sometimes helps. The less healthy I eat, the better my hands get; the other problem is my extreme thinness (see profile photo.) It's driving both wife crazy and bothers me when I look in the mirror. Other than the hands, I feel well but cannot gain weight or muscle mass. I suspect it's because I'm not eating enough but am having difficulty fitting more food in. I refuse to use a blender or juicer (especially as I tried this already with no obvious benefit) but am more than happy to eat more fruit if I can be sure I'm eating the right stuff at the right time, etc.
