Injectable B12- $600 a year, is everyone doing this?

Started this discussion. Last reply by melonhead Jan 8, 2013. 2 Replies

I asked someone on here who said he supplemented with injectable B12 and it was $150 for a three month supply. From what I gather (DR), injecting is the only way to be really sure you are getting the…Continue

I have been eating 100% raw food for the past two and a half years and have been hearing about this website for a while. I am extremely interested in learning more about HCRF as I have put so much time and effort into eating raw food for so long, yet still carry around a bunch of extra weight I am sick of! This way of eating makes sense to me and the results seem to speak for themselves.

I need to learn more about 80/10/10 which I will do by reading the book. In the meantime, I am interested to learn people's experience with HCRF because it seems to be very positive. I have researched lots of different aspects of raw food as I am a big fan, and look forward to learning things more about HCRF.

Second Entry, Six Month 811

Posted on August 10, 2012 at 6:30am 1 Comment

Well, last night, I decided to try some of Dr. Doug's recipes from 811- had a mango and tomato, blended, with chucks of each in the bowl. It was wonderful- I like how he has the three courses for a dinner- fruity, fruity but moving towards veggie, then veggie with a little fruit. It makes sitting down to devour my greens more palatable. I have been using lemon juice on my salads for quite a while, now. It is a leftover belief from my high fat raw days, that I shouldn't combine veggies and…


First entry, six months lfrv

I have thought about doing this for a while- if 30 BaD is going to provide me the forum to blog about fruit, I ought to take it- that's been my thinking, but for some reason, I have stayed away. I think blogging about my fruit journey would be good for accountability- to be able to use objectivity to see more clearly when choices in my life lead to choices in my food and vice-versa. It seems so easy to follow this lifestyle- I think i read where it is simple but not easy. I don't eat cooked…
