"Plant-based diets are a threat to the social structure of culturists who consume meat at the expense of their health so it may not even require funding since information on plant nutrition is so ego dystonic for culturati. Surely people will be defensive since they experience doubt while they are aware of feeding meat to family and 'friends' and not so aware of trying to keep guilt at bay (guilty for not feeling guilty) with reactive reinforcement, covering up and ignoring the otherwise…Continue

Well, when I first embarked on a raw foods diet I was a bit upset at the fact that I could only eat wet foods. Now I see it as the only thing I want. I see dry cooked foods now and I can't believe I once loved them. Yeah, of course some of them are still good, but just recently when I had some, not only did they smell so much better than they tasted, but my tongue felt burned by the heat and my mouth felt as though there was cotton in it.
I was not a happy girl. My thirst was insane and…
Today I've finally found found swiss chard in the city! It was pretty cheap which is good, I thought it'd be sold for much higher price, especially at the place I bought it. So I came home and ate around 100g of those purple leaves . I remembered the taste - I might have eaten it at some restaurant years before. Pretty tasty, wouldn't say I'd eat much of it but cool anyway. And that's where interesting thing happened! I suddenly felt some easiness in my left nostril, like I haven't felt for…Continue

So I was made for this LFRV thing apparently...I LOVE my blendtec blender...posted recipes I came up with today:
Today is my tenth anniversary!
Back then I was 150 pounds which is the lightest I've been in my adult life. Right now I'm about 180. So my goal for now is to get back to my wedding weight. You can see that even then I could stand to lose another 20 pounds or so. So we shall see what happens after I…Continue
I'm going to be leaving the country tomorrow, and I won't have internet until I come back.
I might not get back on for a while even when I do get back home.
Need to get my priorities straight.
Love you all. Really, I do.
Wake up: noon (highly unusual for me.. Usually I wake up at 5am)
13:00 - 16 strawberries, 5 dates, 1 cup of water, all blended together into sweet soup. I wanted to add some bananas too but the ones my mother purchased are so unripe they don't even peel.
A few months ago I joined the the 30Bad group Girl Gone Raw, a group which many of you will know discourages the use of make up and other beauty products, and promotes embracing one's natural beauty.
I've never been very interested in hair and make up, even when I was an impressionable teenager surrounded by peroxide blondes with fake tans. While I do think this was largely due to the fact that I'm just far too lazy to put that much effort into applying make up or doing anything to…Continue
F*ck, I feel good. Full of energy, full of life. I want to be, please, reminded of this if I ever start even considering giving into my cravings for pizza, and the resulting sleep binge afterwards. I feel fortunate compared to a lot of the folks on this site. Many have had real digestive issues and other crazy diseases they had to battle. I've 'just' been overweight...but it came to enough of a head in my conscience and health...
I'm doing a 30 day trial that I sincerely hope…Continue
Ever since I got serious about LFRV maybe 6-8 months ago, I've had cravings for the same kinds of foods over and over. It's stuff I didn't even think I was even remotely addicted to, either. But it's funny when you take things away, what stuff you realized you were addicted to. I've cut out A LOT, but I still have a ways to go.
My biggest weakness by FAR has been salty foods. As soon as I started eating lots of fruit I lost all desire for typical sweets. I was able to…Continue
A friend of mine wrote this beautiful piece on the 'silent voice' within, and related her experience of it to a topic we're all familiar with. I wanted to share it with everyone here, as her words are truly beautiful!
These thoughts are by Heidi Maycroft:
To me, at this time, no other literary work is as helpful in realizing our potential for awareness as “The Voice of Silence”. Now, to define the ‘the voice of silence’ and what it might mean to me at this time…Continue

So I've been on a high fruit diet and it's been an amazing experience thus far. I'm diabetic and at first I was scared to do such a thing. But I learned the proper way to do it. In my experience when I eat mostly all fruits my blood sugars have been within range. I learned that fructose is the only sugar that doesn't need insulin to break into the cell wall.
With this in mind I try to eat only fruits I notice that when i add any vegetable it not only raises my blood sugar but it stays…

It's amazing how much hunger affects mood, more so than I ever had realized before I came to this lifestyle. On days when I haven't eaten enough I'll find that I'm usually somewhat depressed to just plain out angry at the world. At the back of my mind, I try and tell myself "Eat more fruit! You'll feel sooo much better, Michelle!" but I hardly ever want to hear that when I'm upset. Sure enough, though, give me a banana smoothie, and 15 minutes later I'm feelin' on top of the world.
Why stick to a high carb diet?
What? You might ask. You read correctly.
The human body naturally runs on carbohydrates. The pancreas secretes insulin and passes the carbs along to…Continue

Davao City and the surrounding areas have everything one needs. I originally came to Davao in August 2010 because of a post I read written by Darrick on 30bad forums. Darrick described an idyllic place that can be enjoyed on a few hundred US…Continue
