Meditation, Eating, and Cravings

I am a 17 year old raw vegan teen and have been meditating on and off for the last 5 or so years.  I've noticed that when I am practicing meditation, I do not give into my cravings nearly as often.  Although sometimes the cravings are so intense I give in anyways (especially when I don't meditate that day).  Any advice on controlling the cravings so that I stay fully raw, especially on the days I don't meditate?  Thankyou!

Is Healthy Eating An Eating Disorder?

Is healthy eating and eating disorder?

I have a LOT to say on this topic.

Because the answer is not so cut and dry. 

First we have to look at what healthy eating actually means.

Then we have to consider what exactly we define as disordered and ordered eating.

These are complicated questions, with…

convincing parents & High Carb Diet

Okay so I'll start this off by giving a bit of a background. I am a Canadian and have been living in Australia for over a year. In this time I have become a high carb low fat vegan and I eat heaps of fruit, I try to be raw til 4 as much as possible and honestly have never felt better eating this way. So yea, I came home to visit my family for a few weeks the other day and they are all meat eaters. I have tried a few times being overseas to send my parents vidoes and studies showing why…

Durianrider I'm confused about raw till 4 way of eating??

what is your opinion on this statement,

Something that we notice that is promoted heavily in the plant-based community

is drinking large smoothies. For some people who are very active and already

lean, this can be necessary to replace the calories burnt through their exercise and

fast metabolism.

For people who are struggling to lose weight, large fruit smoothies could be…

Sober, HCLF, Cycling, Theatre Life

I sold my car last week and bought a new bike. I've been cycling around town, carbing the f up, and doing what I love daily. But I feel different too. I feel as though everything that I've learned, that I'm used to, that I'm comfortable with, is slowly fading away. Everything that I'm taught ever since I was small seems distant, everything that my parents say or what my family say seems like gibberish and somehow what I learn in school and acting classes made me realize that life is just one…

List of Socially & environmentally conscious documentaries on Netflix

Among the hundreds of Nazi, Hitler, and JFK documentaries, there are documentaries I have favored and hope that others watch the material to gain insight, information, and a new found empathy and understanding for all people, animals, the planet, and ourselves. Of course there are so many more documentaries I enjoyed and see value, and I condensed a list below of the best documentaries to watch on Netflix that are currently uploaded, and a small list of the…

How To Love Your Body Part Four: What Does Personal Care FEEL Like?

Now that you have a richer understanding of why you feel the way you feel in your body, a deeper connection to your true emotions, and are starting to see that it is not your body's job to give you your sense of value and worth, it is time to focus on learning how to nourish yourself from the inside out.

Jan 2016 Reflection

Observation: Raw vs Cooked vs Combined

January 2016

Experimenting with raw vs cooked. It's time to reflect .

On raw, I feel like the emblem of health. Feeling clean, and not weighed down, it's only instinct to want to share this energy with others. But somewhere down the road after consecutive raw days, I find myself searching for a different base.

With brings me to...

95% Raw - 1/25/16

I am back to 95% raw as of 3 days ago.  I have been doing a lot of research on grains in a vegan diet.  For those of us with compromised guts, the grains can be the cause of increased endotoxin regardless of the quality.  I know many successful vegans can eat cooked/grains/beans, etc., but for some of us, it may be too much toxin to handle.  Even though I have been at this going on 3 years, I am a bit older than many people coming to 30bad, so I think I need to do more healing on a raw diet.…

Why I feel sick after the smoothie breakfast?

I just recently started RT4, and have problems after breakfast. Usually I have 1liter of green smoothie, with 5-6 bananas,dates,some green and some other fruit(depends what I have mature at home). This smoothie is usually about 7-800kcl.I drink it slowly in an hour.Not forcing it at all. But after I had the half of it, my stomach starts to hurt. Is not like a "oh I'm full" feeling, but a very uncomfortable ,sickening one.Then I have to take some break .Sometimes I even feel dizzy.

What Are You Making Your Body Mean?

Do you really have to feel badly about yourself when you gain weight? 

Do you have to hate your body when it swells or is puffy? 

Do you need to have your stomach flip over when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror?

 Is it actually super important that you are acutely aware at all times of how you look, so that you can determine how you feel?

It is time to get to really get into…

Food/exercise diary

So, this is going to be a place for me to journal every day about what I ate (taking a screenshot of my cronometer would probably be best), and how I exercised/slept/felt, or anything else I feel relevant. I will just write in the comments to avoid making a million posts. The main purpose of this is to help me correct the inevitable newbie mistakes I'm bound to make. When I experience a problem I can go back here and try to figure out why it happened. If I get really lost, I will ask someone… Continue
