Fruitarathon 2

I ran 10 miles to class without bringing anything with me. Found a bit of citrus and loquats on the way there. On the walk back found more citrus and stepped into a grocery store to drink some clean water. I stopped by a grocery store and see yeehaw ripe bananas but have no cash. So when I get home I bike back singing about the platanos organicos que quiero. malheureusement quand j'arrive a las ocho la STORE esta cerrado. fortunately another market is open and i get awesome organic citrus…

100% LFRV, no more undercarbed days for this fruitygal;)

So, I slowly, since getting back on the wagon last month, increased fruit intake. This is day three and I have been eating two meals a day 1500 cals each. If we decide to go to a park, zoo, hiking during the day I will bring dateorade!!
I feel much more emotional calm and harmony already!

BEDA: April 6th

Hello hello!


I’ve been VERY BUSY today! I got up and went for my run then I dove into the squalor that was out rec room! To justify the mess we did just have some spray foam sprayed along the headers in the room so everything kind of got thrown haphazardly into the middle. There was…

Day5 - Sleeeeeeeppppp

Went to bed @ 2000 hrs last pm... 0600 came REALLY EARLY...


The LFRV is really taking hold - some healing is moving in full time !!


I am being careful to keep the calories up (~2800-3000), hydrate (2-3L per day), sleep, exercise (incl. rebounding), sun, and deep breathing...


Have to be patient... 44 years of REALLY BAD/SAD went in... should be able to tolerate a year on LFRV to get the majority of it out?

BEDA: April 5th

Today was an interesting day. I got up, went for my run and then I spent a couple hours intensely cleaning our living/dining room. After spending about 2 hours throughly cleaning every nook and cranny of the room I spent my afternoon colouring and watching Doctor Who <3 My colouring was most awesome because I was colouring some My Little Pony and Doctor Who pictures :)…

Open Letter to all the diverse groups on 30BAD - Long rambling post warning

Here on 30BAD we don't argue certain things, like calorie counting, hydration, condiments, etc. Why? Because the goal is to have a place where, when you're there, YOU AGREE on certain things, it’s part of the sign-up there's no sneaking it in, no surprise. This is so we have unity of purpose and can move forward in what we've agreed (in the sign up process) is important. You can disagree on whatever you like, but being a member here means you accept that you will not disagree, out loud at…

No more tomatoes!

Agh!!! I forgot to restock on my non-sweet fruits!

On a more serious note, I actually wanted to vent out about my maternal grandmother's illness. We have been estranged for almost 8 years until last summer. That was when I found out that she had breast cancer. By then she already had received her chemo and mammograms, etc. Yesterday I decided that I couldn't lie to myself any longer and decided to email my mom a link to a website that exposes the ramifications of traditional cancer…

The Secret Challenge - Day 50- Post Tsunami

I'm going to start this post with another of my favourite quotes from "The Secret". I love the teachings of Esther and Jerry Hicks, and this is possibly my favourite all time quote from them.


"Joseph Campbell said "Follow your bliss". We think those are the best words we've ever heard spoken from a human tongue. And if one could follow one's bliss you would follow the trail to abundance and well being on all subjects. 

There is nothing you cannot do or have or be. You…

Newbie Question

Hey guys new to the LFRV lifestyle.


I am currently loving my banana and dates smoothies and feel that this is really my staple at the moment. My question is - will my body get everything it needs from bananas, water, dates, sun and sleep? I do eat other fruits like apples, melon and mangos but not nearly as much as bananas and dates. Do I need to go for a wider range to get all nutrients? I live in Scotland so it is very hard for me to get decent fruit as deep fat fried…

My social and physical issues

Well it's been about 1 1/2 months vegan. One of my biggest problems is the socializing with non-vegans.  I have developed a strong "gagging reflex" where I feel like I want to vomit when I am around strongly smelling friend meats eg: fried chicken, burgers, hot dogs. It is difficult for me to even look at someone without feeling sick during lunch or even out to dinner with friends.  Part of it I think is that I am spending a lot of time reading articles on the web, after watching the movies… Continue

Hello y’all :)


It has been raining most of the day today so today would have been a LOVELY day for me to have some nice red wellies! Unfortunately I still do not have a pair as size 10 ladies rubber boots as they are apparently not easy to find where I live. Even though I did not…

Overcoming Eating Disorders

I am writing this post to remind myself of what I've been through and where I am today.  It is hard for me to tell the world about my disordered past, as i kept it secret for so long, but this is how I know that I have overcome something big and have made incredible changes.  


I always think back to when I was 18 and the first time my fingers slid into the back of my mouth hoping to purge the toasted bagel with cheese and eggs I just wolfed down.  I felt guilty for eating it…

Something Every Onion Eater Needs To Know

What if onions had to have their own vocalized warning label, like the ridiculous voiceovers that follow drug commercials? 

What would that friendly, disembodied voice tell us about the famous bulbous perennial? 

Looking at the science, you'd probably have to generate a warning that included the following: 

Do not take onions if you're pregnant (due to risk of miscarriage) nursing (because the chemical allison enters breast milk and disturbs baby feeding patterns)… Continue

Weightlessness - My New Perspective on Weight Loss

I’ve stopped losing weight.  Honestly, I’m so over that. I’m too busy learning to live my life passionately, meaningfully and abundantly.

Does that mean that I’m parking off on the couch with a smorgasbord of my (past) favorite snacks and dreaming of dinner during lunch again? Hell no. I’m still eating like an athlete.  I’m moving more than ever.

It’s all about where I’m directing my precious energy.

I am…

Salt cravings!

Eureka moment!


I had mad salt cravings this afternoon and couldn't figure out why. I was craving seaweed (like in those Japanese seaweed salads - how odd! I never crave that!)


Trot along home to cron-o-meter, and sure enough - had eaten only about 1000 calories by 5pm! YIKES!


Quickly got myself into the bananas. Voila, salt cravings gone. I'd heard other 30BaD-ers saying that salt cravings can be caused by undereating, but of course I thought…
