"I totally agree with this. Just go out with them, have a water with lemon....maybe a seltzer water with lemon if you're feelin' crazy ; ) and show them you wanna be part of their group by just being part of the conversation and…"
"I am also wondering if you might be fighting some other infection unrelated to starting HCRV. Or maybe it's a food allergy or even a mild bout of food poisoning (just guesses, I am by no means a doctor).

I've done a lot of "emotional eating" in the past, too.
811, especially HCRV 811, works better to control food addiction than anything else I've tried. I've just recently come back to it after sliding back…"

Congrats on deciding to try this. I just recently re-started after being HCRV with much success a couple years ago...

Artist/musician/jewelry designer living in New York City. Been vegan for a while, but have always struggled with proper nutrition, even when I know what I ought to be eating. I tried HCRV (and was a member of this site) a couple years ago, to wonderful effect. Somewhere along the line I slipped back into old habits, and in case anyone needs reminding: Standard American Diet= SAD : (
This time around, I am more motivated than ever to stick to this. Nothing tastes better and more nourishing than fresh fruits and veggies.

I really want to be HCRV and just need some guidance
Reading "The 80-10-10 Diet" by Dr Doug Graham is vital for succeeding on this lifestyle. Please acquire this book as soon as possible.
I will read the book again!!

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?
It is just nice to be part of a community, and to get positive reinforcement. I am here to connect with others who are enjoying this lifestyle, not to debate with those who want to shoot it down.
I would also love to find a cyber-buddy who I can "check in with" on a daily basis for at least the first month or so of the lifestyle, just to keep me on the straight and narrow until my old bad habits loosen their grip on me a little.
30bad is a HCRV (high carb, raw vegan) internet community which promotes a high carb raw lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to HCRV. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this

The solution to all the world's problems can be found in a garden. Please take the time to look into Permaculture. http://permaculture.org.au/ or you local g... This guy is a superhero and his work give me hope for the future!
so, i've had many people say "oh wow, you have great definition/musculature" and then, once they know i'm vegan, start to counsel me on the importance of protein in my diet.
this is just a fun little bonus nugget of gratuitous vegan-muscle bearing.…
Get the "Fruit Songs" album! http://rawfoodfreedom.bandcamp.com
A young man in Soviet Russia finds out about the fruity vegan lifestyle, and gets on a ship to make his dreams come true. It's very nice!
