Ughhh wish I didn't eat all that oil last night! First of all, I got my period today, and a part of my thinks that it came on because of my change in diet yesterday (I don't really know if that can affect your cycle though). The good news is that I made it through the day without a single cramp! And that is a huge deal for me, because I have been on birth control for the past 4 years to try to alleviate my pms pain.
I was extremely gassy and bloaty ALL day. And it was…Continue

Tomorrow starts the beginning of the BG Diet challenge. I loved to know who else is joining in. It would be great to support each other.
This body is the most efficient vehicle and the most beautiful musical instrument. It's a computer free of outdating, and a camera with a googolplex pixels. It's a vessel of light, a cup of water, a trowel, a filter, a bellows. It's a door from here to there, a window, and a wall. It's the most entertaining entertainment center. It's a rechargeable battery, a cordless converter, and outlet of power. It's a boat and a sinker. It's a cherry picker, an orange peeler, blender and juicer. It's…Continue

Well, I broke down and weighed myself today. I do not own a scale, but my parents have one at their house and I was really interested to see how much I weighed. Just as some background- Over the winter I got to my heaviest at 160, and before that when I was on the HCG diet I got down to 140 and that was the best I've looked in my life. I weighed in at 147 this morning, which is actually exactly where I wanted to be. And now I will not have access to a scale until…Continue
I am so grateful for all the banana peeps on this site and elsewhere for promoting lots of rest. I've been really making a good night's rest a priority, and it's making the world of difference. I have so much more energy and clarity...and that makes me happy!

On and on I go...
I MUST CONQUER.
I worked overnight! And I am pooped! At any rate, I have decided to raise the bar a little bit. I have eaten enough raw foods and long enough to know how I feel when I am raw and when I am not. At this point everything I put in my body has an effect, and I am more mindful of it. Therefore, I am think I am ready to challenge myself with banana island. I have tried it before and failed. But I would like to give it a go. I have made myself a list to look at when I want to quit! Lol. Anyways, I…Continue
Got a ridiculous burn all over my backside today and don't have aloe! lol
Any advice at all? I don't use chemmy sunscreen bc of the fact that I think that it intensifies the issue, and went out to the beach with the intention of getting some color, but this is a bit excessive . . .
How long do these things usually sting for? And is there something I can do to speed up the healing process? Thanks for reading. Hope to hear good stuff soon. <3
I have so much faith in this diet and I will never, ever stop eating this way. It's not an option for me, as I have never felt as good about what goes into my body ever!! I'm just really disappointed and confused because I haven't lost any weight on this diet... but gained. I've gained fifteen pounds, and these fifteen pounds do not look good on me!! I've been doing 811 since April 3, 2012. I changed my lifestyle nearly five months ago and haven't lost a single pound!! I feel awful about…Continue
There is a force of medieval minded men who depend on our division from divinity and our disconnection from the natural world. They dedicate their lives to perpetuating our worship of a male deity, as our creator and superior. While inspiration and exhalation is what creates creation. They call for genocide upon the natural humans of the world and define them as savages in the history books. They

i'm reporting from santa clara, ca staying with 7-10ish other vegans in a big house.
a few people are mostly raw (in the fruit direction) lots of music and fun and super low-no rent depending on your situation
the house is seeking a female to rent a room (currently there are around 5 guys and 3 girls).
the price will probably be around 440 for a room
if interested we'll host some dinner and you can check it out

Woke up this morning, had a big cup of OJ- then went on a run! I went with my friend Alison, and we did the same 4.5 miles that I did yesterday. It was awesome- we were averaging 11 min/mile, which for me is really good, and we sprinted up hills. I ran the last 2 miles barefoot too, which always feels awesome. Now I need to make sure that I get in more calories today. I probably should shoot for 2500-3000 calories today.
I am going to visit my grandparents today in Toms River,…Continue
