Hi! My name is Olivia and I am a 19 year old girl from Brisbane Australia :) I sing, dance, study and own my own business. So how did I get onto the HCRV lifestyle? I have come from a background of professional dancing, which I started when I was 4 years old. Dancing told me I was too big when I was a kid, so my whole life I have been diet jumping, trying anything to lose weight. This led me to developing anorexia and bulimia at the age of 16. I became very malnourished and tried doing the raw food diet to get better. Unfortunately I only went half raw, and did not educate myself, so I was still only consuming 500 calories a day. From then until recently, when I read Freelee's 'Go Fruit Yourself' I had been on and off starving, had become severely unwell, depressed, anxious, miserable and had all but destroyed my digestive system. Now, after only eating this way for two days, I feel like a completely different person - and the all benefits haven't even had a chance to start! Continued health, guidance and happiness is why I am here :)
