I am almost 34 and live with my partner of almost 12 years and our 5yo daughter. I switched to a plant based diet in August 2015 after watching a few documentaries (Hungry for change, fat, sick, and nearly dead, and FOK were my first ones). I went home and pretty much took everything out of the house that wasn't healthy for our bodies. I did it more for the health reasons and I remember going out to lunch with my partner a few months after and we had ordered burgers. I just couldn't eat it. I think I took one bite - and just couldn't eat it. I started out by juicing a lot every day and felt AMAZING. As someone who has chronic fatigue, it was the best feeling I've ever felt! My mood was great, I was smiling, I was happy - intrinsically. It fell downhill after personal issues at home and there were even times I would get the cheesy hash browns in the deli at Whole Foods. I just wanted it. I lost touch with the animal cruelty aspect of veganism. But I also just couldn't help it. I re-educated myself and reminded myself why I ethically do not want to eat that. I've also been in weekly therapy since May, and am coming into a hopeful feeling (only every now and then - very infrequently). But I also am learning that our diet can help with that as well. I want in, but I'm also tired. And I don't want to spend all this money on fresh food and then binge on chips and guac at night, or chipotle every week. In the parasite cleanse group, they talk a lot about staying away from fruit as the parasites love sugar, but then what Freelee says makes so much sense. So it left me confused, and I want to make sure I have it right. I've learned parasites can control your life, and anyone that I've come across on a raw vegan lifestyle has looked healthy, happy, and ALIVE. I want that.

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 not quite sure just how to begin this process. I've been following freely for about a month now after hearing of her from Ellen Fisher. I did a parasite cleanse a couple months ago and I'm looking for other ways to maintain a clean body. I keep falling with food addictions (I think?).
