I fail

Less than a month off Raw Till 4, and I'm back.

I just don't feel great eating a more regular vegan diet.

Here I begin again.

bananas, mangoes - so much producing, biking it in from all over town, but it's worth it to feel good.

My weight has edged up to 136 - Returning to the Raw Till 4 Diet

I've entered a "fruit-less" depression since leaving Hawaii.

It's not that cheap fruit cannot be found in NYC. Just the other day I photographed the bounty I brought in from fruit stands, foraging, and Union Square Greenmarket for under $20.…

Peach, Plum, Pear fruit trees & Tulip spring flowers blooming

Last week was very cold and so I kept all the fruit trees covered--hoping that would protect the fruit tree blooms. It looks like the pear blooms and nectarine blooms survived but are wilted; while the other peach and plum trees waited till after the week of frost to bloom. There was lots of bees on those trees yesterday.



It's sad to say, but the 5 year old Peach tree I planted from Arborday.org died this year. I can at least say I got a fruit harvest off of it last summer, and…

Loading weight on raw till 4

A lot of people enter a Raw Till 4 lifestyle to lose weight.



While I have lost weight and am barely hanging in at a tawny 5ft 6in, 130 lbs, it's only because I have an active lifestyle and job + strictly adhere to the Raw Till 4 restrictions.



Now as someone who jogs and walks for a couple hours each morning and then spends the day pacing and standing outside speaking to students at college campuses about animal rights, my body has no problem mowing through 3000 calories a… Continue

Feeling so bloated :( any help appreciated!

I have healed my acne, my eczema and gradually lost quite a bit of weight. I now want to push myself to the next level of health and weightloss and do rt4 properly. I have… Continue

Why Self Hate Is The WORST Motivator

Self hate can feel like a really awesome, powerful motivator to get s*** done in your life.

First, you may feel you don't have 'self hate' so to speak, but rather a healthy level of self rejection that keeps you in check, That keeps you on track. That keeps you from falling into the worst of what you know you can be.

But my friend, know that this is simply self hate masquerading as self…

Why Our Economy Is !@#$%^&, And What You Can Do About It

At this point, I think we can all safely say that our current model of commerce is not working.

We are seeing a continued trend of those in power getting more powerful, and those with lack of resources having fewer and fewer resources.

We have created an economy based on lack, on fear, of not enough. And we are absolutly seeing the consequences of this on a global…

Scary truth about America's diet RANT (food waste & unhealthy food consumption)

According to Ecowatch:"90 percent of the foods humans eat come from just 30 plants. Out of tens of thousands of plants we could eat, mankind chooses to consume only about 30 of them. It’s crazy to contemplate how limited our diets are compared to all of the different foods we could be eating".

A diet of 30 plants that humans consume is less worrisome that Michael Pollan's argument.

As mentioned in my…
