I washed my pants, and even still they are loose. Feels good man.
Before I begin, I'm not making this post out of any negativity or bashing WHATSOEVER. I am simply trying to help people that are in a similar situation as me and find people who may be experiencing what I've been experiencing....
Obviously fruits and vegetables are wonderful, who can disagree with that?
Even as a child growing up I never really liked a lot of carbs, potatoes, etc. I always loved peanut butter and meat, sandwiches, vegetables, sometimes fruit,…Continue
I could never go back to eating animal-byproducts, the way I feel is too amazing to go back/ I had 2 apples and a kiwi, spirulina and spinach smoothie for breakfast, lunch was 20 dates and 3 huge sweet potatoes, and dinner was about 8 pears and a huge bowl of rice. I also did about an hour of starclimber at the gym (thanks to my newfound energy) and did a easy 2 mile run :)
the fat cravings are rough today. made some great all veg soup for dinner so I'm settling into that.

Yes I know it may sound odd to many, or maybe not I don't know. But I wanted to share my experience. I went vegan in July of this year. I followed Rawtil4 just how Freelee does it. Though I enjoyed it for the most part, my stomach did not, I will spare the details because I have talked about them in my other posts. Nothing seemed to digest very well. So after a lot of consideration and research I figured it was in my best interest to go raw. So things seemed a little more regular, but I…Continue

I love eating all raw but I'm finding it hard to get in enough calories. I simply cannot afford to. On Saturday, after a heavy workout, I decided to add half a can of chickpeas to my evening salad to up my intake and it has completely screwed up my system again. It's now Monday night and I am still bloated and constipated from them. My forehead and chin even broke out again. I feel like I am back to day 1. It's kind of ridiculous.
I'm feeling rather frustrated with my body and how…Continue
So recently I embarked on the mission of becoming basic. I was in Oxford street with my best friend and I was shopping and felt quite basic (so much so that I thought a Starbucks drink would complete my basicness). I didn't really want to get a Starbucks, I just felt like it was the right move in becoming a basic girl. So I went into Starbucks and ordered the most basic drink - a Pumpkin spiced latte. As I was trying to be basic, I forgot to ask for the vegan version. So what I ended up with…Continue
That childlike essence within us all just wants to play, it really wasn’t ready for the suits and ties in the big city. Our soul feels the disharmony among this world; the pollution, the noise, the time we spend doing meaningless things. Why don’t we hear the calls?
I think we suppress our sensitivity so much so that we don’t know how to feel our way through life. Most of us drown out the very essence of it all and don’t experience the emotions that bring us to tears, that inspire us…Continue
Breakfast was 5 banana smoothie with 15 dates and kale, broccoli and spinach. Snack was 2 apples, dinner was 2 huge sweet potatoes aaand i know you shouldn't eat late but I was still hungry and I had 4 rice rolls (sticky rice wrapped in seaweed). My run today was amazing. I did 8 miles EASY, whereas before I was so tired after half of that. I did notice that I'm getting cold really easily. Not that its uncomfortable, but it's noticeable. Maybe because of the low fat? Any other fruit bats…Continue
I've been feeling poorly for about 2 years now and after finally finding an holistic doctor, I was found to have high cortisol and low DHEA. I was told to supplement with this pre hormone...I have a lot wrong going on with me but would like to know if anyone has ever taken it and what you think of it? Helpful or harmful ?
Also does anyone here suffer from Pyroluria?
Today I wanted to share more of my 'middle' of my healing journey.
When I was recovering from Anorexia, the journey was pretty crazy.
I wanted to share this because I feel this being in the 'middle'- not in your disease/unhealthy/unbalanced state anymore, but not at where you are going yet is one of the least talked about places. And one of the hardest places to be.
So I wanted to share my journey in hopes that it will help you feel better about…Continue

I would like to see some testimonials for those who have really stuck it out, gained weight, and now are losing or met goal weight on Raw til 4? I see people maintaining or gaining but never any stories of those who really have recovered over a long period and finally are eating to abundance and have begun to finally lose.
i really need to get my sleep schedule back where i am in bed falling asleep by 9 or 10 pm and lately i haven't even been able to fall asleep before 12 or even 1 am sometimes. if i eat anything less than 3k calories i will literally be too hungry to go to sleep, and once I'm hungry sleeping is almost out of the question. i have adrenal fatigue, so I've been trying to just rest and get the cals in (not forcing I'm literally just hungry all the time) but i still can't fall asleep idk what is…Continue
Hello friends! I haven't posted anything about my digestion lately because it's all over the place. Some days will be good and then some horrid, with less good days than bad.
I have been vegan for 4 months, was first Rawtil4 then slowly switched to like 99% raw. I was hoping to eventually simplify it down to 801010. I would eat cooked veggies sometimes, but always with a lot of raw food. While being RawTil4 my body did not like me combining a lot of fruit with a lot of starch, so…Continue
Breakfast was a 2 banana smoothie with spinach and 10 dates. Lunch was 30 dates, had a box of strawberries for snack, and for dinner I'm having grapes and sweet potato fries. I entered my info into cronometer to see my fat and protein intake and it shows me my calories too (been trying to avoid that). I guess I'm up to 5,000 calories a day now, and as a 5'1 girl with a past eating disorder, I really struggle with that number. But the way I feel and the happiness I have beats all the…Continue
The hardiest fruit trees are Apples, Pears, and Plums which survive Zone 3 temperatures (-30 degrees to -40 degrees Fahrenheit). In Zone 4, many varieties of berries, Plums, Persimmons, Cherries, and Apricots do very well. In Zone 5 there are more options such as Peaches, Mulberries, and Paw paws. These zones receive temperatures as low as 20 or 30 degrees below. Fortunately I can grow more types of fruit in my gardening zone 6 and 7. Zone 6 receives temperatures…Continue
I would just like to say thank you to Freelee for showing me this lifestyle. It has truly transformed my life. Coming from a past of eating disorder and poor diet, I can honestly say that I have never been happier to have the voices in my heading (that were constantly counting calories) to be silenced by a louder voice that simply says, "10 bananas, have at it, no more calorie restriction here".
Thank you for showing me the life of abundance! I am at 5 months now and the…Continue
