30 Bananas a Day!

the only thing I'm deficient in for my hair loss..

had some tests done and out of everything tested for, vitamin d was the only thing that was low. it was a 20 and normal range is 30-100

 

also, my potassium levels were higher than normal

 

i highly doubt vitamin d deficiency is causing my hair loss, but im supplementing and walking around shirtless as much as possible

if my hair doesnt start improving in a month something will have to change with my diet

what are taste-buds for...why do we taste...taste sensation

What are taste-buds for? a work in progress...

 

We derive pleasure from taste but this is not what it's for, taste sensations are there so we may detect WHAT we are eating, taste being the bodies second line of defence against poison, the first being sight and smell and of course the knowledge of what to look for...

 

The five tastes and what they signify to the body:

• Sweet -- energy

• Salty -- sodium & other salts

• Umami (savoury) --…

Catch 22. Food volume+sleep+exercise=24hrs

I have difficulties getting the equation to work on sufficien food, sleep and exercise. There isnt enought time in the day and/or enough room in my belly. Right now is middle of the night, I guess I got 4 hrs of sleep, quite possiblty cause I didnt reach 2500 cals and I didnt want to eat too late cause I really wanted a good nights sleep.. I realize those nights are starting to add up.. = S

Fury

I try to be peaceful and placating until I come to a point where I realize how artificial it is and that I have to own up to what I am. I get enraged at what I see of myself. I don't want to do "just enough," I want to go out and do more than anyone thinks they can. No excuses. If you want to get there, you have to do what it takes to be the closest you can to that- right now. I have to spark that fire and keep it burning. It is what I own. 

 

I am enraged at what I've become…

A bit sheepish (crashed out after day 17)

Well, I must admit to falling off the banana wagon on Day 17. I barely ate any fruit over the weekend either.

I'm going to start by updating my daily journal up to the point where I mess up, then follow that with this morning's journal where I list why cooked food is SUCH a bad idea.

 

Monday 4 July: Day 13, 89.0kg

orange mango juice

Tuesday 5 July: Day 14, -

Need to eat MORE!

Marathon info that Ladies need to know and no one ever teaches

Being a lady still looking like a lady after a marathon sounds easier than it is. Yes girls want to be on the same level as the guys but its nice to have a feminine quality when crossing a finish line. Here are some tips I have learned along the way:

1. NEVER always train in spandex tights. Yes you want to show off your curves especially if like myself you have lost a lot of weight, but if you run every day in tights you WILL get Jock itch! No one ever mentions this to girls cause you…

Raw Progress

I always was slender (or so I thought), and I have had "problem skin" since I was very young, maybe 8 or 9.

 

I have been (extremely) raw since January 2011, I kicked things off with a 17 day fruit-only feasting.

 

This picture is me at only 19. I am dressed for "tacky prom" but still. Not hot.

Raw on a budget in New England

I am having trouble finding affordable fruit in Connecticut (Hartford area).  Fruit doesn't grow year round and I cannot find a produce market that sells it affordably (I haven't had luck with the Regional Produce Market in Hartford).  Any tips?

Always go to the Market!

Have you ever not wanted to go to get fruit, and then was so happy that you did based on your finds?

Are We Perfectionists?

Living a raw lifestyle can often be seen as extreme.  The rules that must be followed can range from person to person, but can get increasingly more stringent depending on the "raw" you follow.



Some raw diets, such as the 80/10/10 diet, which recommends sticking to certain foods…

4th Day LFRV

I'm doing well on day four of LFRV diet!

 

Not sure 100% I'm eating 'enough' yet, it is such a weird concept... however, I am tracking the notion that if I get hungry for other stuff, I should 'eat more fruit.'

 

So I'm eating some at 'meal time' even though I'm not totally hungry which feels kinda weird.

 

My blood feels cleaner, and last night omg! I had a spontaneous adjustment of my sacrum! It was actually like the left hip just above the sacrum.…

On fire today....

~3200 calories yesterday.. and will have 3000 today (a rest day)....

 

I am on FIRE !!  (compared to the norm)... I took a "walk" at lunch.... and had to RUN at times... I just felt light and strong... just amazing.

 

The body is starting to "sputter" a bit.... cannot wait for it to start running like that all the time.

 

Focus now is very little fat, 2-3L of water, sauna, plenty of fruit and exercise....

God provides! // Thanks for all the fish.

So, yesterday I ran out of food.

Let me start at the beginning.

 

I have been out of work for the last 2 months after sustaining a serious back injury from falling down a flight of stairs (yeah, I know, not good!) Needless to say, funds have been extremely tight, and after paying my rent for this month, I really have next to nothing left. So I started praying and praying that somehow God would provide me with food for the next week. Well, yesterday I was getting really…
