McDougall for 2 weeks



I had to try it.... the McDougall camp convinced me to......


I miss fruit.   I have been eating some fruit - but really miss eating a LOT of it.


My sinus' are plugged, I feel lethargic (although I feel fairly strong), my digestion is not great, my head aches and I cannot seem to drink enough water.....hmmm


I have asked my wife to pull the trigger on a mess of pineapples and bananas..... I'm headed back when they are ripe…

Fruit acid and teeth

Hi all!

I'm a Newbie at the 811 diet and I wanted to ask if the many fruit acid's didn't damage the teeth over the years?

Thanks ahead for your answers (and sorry for my bad english!)

Day 7

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi (adapted for me who is not a Christian and has trouble with some of the wording--no offense intended.)

Make me an instrument of peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy.

Grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

Here is my review after 10 days of LFRV. 

I noticed several improvements, however, a lot of work ahead.

Need support + German revolution

Dear All,

At the moment I am working hard on spreading the 811 and V word in the German speaking world. There is not much info out there yet, and many peeps i know are just too lazy to read anything in English. 

So, i created this website and am writing a blog. It would be so great if you could give it a thumbs-up on facebook or on the website, even though you can't understand a word :) Well, you can use a translator i guess. But it is basically very similar…

100 days raw no overts - day 3

Hello again... I'm still here!..... and I feel great! Last day of renovating so hopefully tomorrow I will get time to hook into some exercise. I am itching to do something other than climb up and down ladders all day. 

I forgot to mention that I had a sore back before I started back on the raw. It wasn't my smartest moment when I hurt my back. But geez I was having fun!! I was catching waves on the boogie board with my sister in law and I was just getting so excited that I kind of did…

I am so in love with my juicer! I can't believe it took me so long to get one.  My teenage son loves the juices I make too. Now I'm going through 3 times as much fruit now.

day 4- yay no fat cravings!

today i just made sure to eat all day! i made two big smoothies to take to school, one that was bananas, dates and oranges (yummy!) and other that was apples and kale. i just made sure to keep drinking these all through class, and didn't even finish till i got home. now i'm munching on a big bowl of cucumbers and bell peppers (great study food!) and later i'm going to treat myself to some banana-strawberry pudding. no fat cravings all day! maybe i can do this :-)

Day 6

If I miss typing my blog post in the morning, it's hard for me to remember what I did.  So this one will be short and sweet.

I had a bit better sleep.  Remarkable what better eating will do, right?  I got up at 8 a.m.  I intended to work out right away, but I got some work calls and nursed the little guy a lot and before I knew it, it was 11 a.m.  

I did 50 minutes on the bike and got a nice sweat going.

The rest of the day flew by.  I had an…

The Truth Isn't Hidden--We've Got a Whole Lot to Live For

On one hand, we can say that the truth about what has been done to our food system in the U. S. is largely hidden, that people are dumbed down and completely duped into thinking that the packaged food they are buying and consuming is actually good for them. Nowhere do the food manufacturers and purveyors give education on what those poly-syllabic ingredients or methods of processing actually mean or do to the body. We seem to have to go digging for the information, digging for the Truth,…

100 days raw no overts - day 2

Hey here I am again at the end of another day! I feel so much better today...my face doesn't look puffy and I feel heaps happier. Yay raw!! So glad to be back! 

Today I ate a young coconut - juice and meat (hate calling it meat....what else could I call it...flesh is not much better...oh well I'll work on that). I am not sure whether it is an overt ...I guess it is. My whole day came in at just over 5% fat so I am happy with that and I will dig out my 80-10-10 book and work out…

Being human

As long the human does not encounter itself in the hearts and the eyes of his fellow human beeings, he escapes.

As long as he does not allow others to have part on his inner life, there is no security for him.

As long as he fears to be seen throught, he cannot recognize itself or others-he will be alone.

Wherelse but in our fellows can we find that  mirror?

Here at last a person can appear clearly to himself not as the giant of his dreams nor the dwarf of his…

Our Deepest Fear

Our Deepest Fear:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking 

So that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We were all meant to shine, as children do.

It's not just in some of us; it's in…

day 3 for me- calorie consumption??

i am having such trouble getting to 2500 calories. is that really what i'm supposed to eat? what if i don't work out for the day (sometimes i'm stuck at school all day) i read that the average person burns about 2200 calories just living, so how am i supposed to lose weight eating 2500 calories? it just doesn't add up to me. i'm so used to eating 1300 or 1500. i couldn't get myself past 1670 today (which is way high for me) I know you guys are probably gonna tell me this is silly talk, but…

Boo! This is a rant...

Yesterday and today have been terrible.

I didn't stick to only eating just fruit. Even worse, today I had pizza with real cheese and cookies. I don't know why...

Now, I feel TERRIBLE. My energy is shot. I am sad. And I just want to go and sleep. I don't want to eat cooked foods or dairy products for that matter. I feel like I just sabotaged myself. Ugh.

I guess I need to try harder to eat a good breakfast, so I won't want anything cooked by noon. My blender should be…
