I was introduced to Raw Food by Dr. Daug Graham's 80/10/10 in April 2010 and it made perfect sense to me. Having a biology background I appreciated Graham's explanations of the diets' impact on the body.
It has been a journey, starting with a simple diet of abundant fruits and vegetables (and feeling more alive than ever) then switching to gourmet raw food (and feeling all clogged up).
Most of my struggle with the raw vegan low fat diet came from the social aspects of it. My parents think I will get sick and die and my friends do no understand why I'm so "extreme" and think I need help.
I also live in a very extreme climate (hot in the summer and freezing in the winter which lasts 6 months).
I'm also friends with The Cool Vegetarian (on YouTube), Jeff Golfman who is very inspiring and RAWKS:)
Overall I'm trying to get a sense of a community and associate with like-minded people :)

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 always had trouble getting a sufficiently high amount of carbohydrates from this diet (even though I feel like I'm constantly eating) and thus tend to lean towards foods high in starch (cooked grains and potatoes mostly).
I don't know if this is relevant, but I had some minor eating disorders in the past.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings.

I will comply because I like totally agree with all this
