I've dabbled in raw food going as long as 8 months, but without guidance I would simply fall into old habits. Even without a real program I always felt better and performed better on raw food. So I'm learning as much from this site as I can until I can afford the 80 10 10 bible. I've got some personal goals and hoping this is the next step on my path.
peace and blessings,

So it is day 2 of my 811LFRV living, and i must say, it is definitely nannerville in my system. i have 6 more bananas to go, totalling 23 nanners for the day. im going to have my head of romaine and some orange/tomato dressing later on, and im on my 2nd liter of water. drinking all of this water is so tough for me! i hope it gets easier. i used to be extremely dehydrated, now im catching up! ive been peeing like crazy, its gotten clear with only a tad bit of color left, but i cant stop…Continue

Hola chicos! :D

Hey ya'll .. I'm having some trouble the last two days, I'm craving something I'm not sure what though just random craving not for bananas.. I guess like a sweet potato or quinoa or at one point eggs(never eat though). Any advice?
yeah i forgot to post yesterday.
funny thing was i threw some bananas into my freezer with them skins on and it really froze like a rock! no kidding! when i took them out the next morning, it looked so white! and peeling off the skin was so cold and painful! gosh i was so happy when i dropped in the last piece of banana. but it was such a lovely breakfast smoothie like drink, cool and nice. i really enjoy juicing them. really makes life so much…Continue
It is a shame that Wolfe, Clement, Kulvinkas, and many others, despite their contributions and popularization of raw, have never experienced the true benefits of health, fitness and wellness as provided by the a low fat raw vegan fruit-based mode of eating. (perhaps public awareness is their sole strength and contribution, but that is enough). For them to lambast the superior results of years of discipline of those who actually ARE serious about health is unacceptable. Here is what I…Continue
My mom came in the house, not having been home all day, to see the two 100 banana boxes on the kitchen floor. "Why...do you need that much" she says with a negative tone". "Well mom, i am going to be eating 20 ish a day until my book comes in the mail, then i'll better know what other fruits to add in that i can buy". "That was $60??" after i had told her how much it cost. I then told her i also bought my lettuce, cucumbers, and celery. "You're going to eat 20 a day?!" "Yes, that along…Continue

So this is my second day of going RAW!! Woo, but unfortunately I'm feeling a little crappy! I keep coughing up crap from my lungs, I have had a bad headache, but I think thats the detox from coffee considering I was drinking like 5 cups per day! And now I have a temperature! I'm really hoping this is normal and I start to feel a little better soon!
I also feel a little hrmm how can I say it "depressed" I know I experienced the same feelings from being a meat…Continue

So i went to whole foods, and went straight to produce! i bought (organic) 7 heads of romaine, 7 cucumbers, 3 big celery bunches, 1 lb of medjool dates (for breakfast) and that came to $43. i got some stares at myself and my carriage when i was loading all of this fresh delicious produce up on the belt, and i figured i should start getting used to inquisitive and "why does she have so much lettuce?" stares. So…Continue
I'm testing out a new regimen: LFRV + one serving of cooked [plain] veggies everyday. I've done 100% LFRV before with great success, but wanted more variety in vegetables. Of course, I'll still be mono-mealing heavily on fruits (I typically consume >10lbs of water-rich fruits daily). Giving this a trial spin, and will be updating this personal journal of sorts daily.
Day 1 - 09/02
I am pretty satisfied with myself right now for having made some confirmations that are serving me well. The first one being that I have to stop putting up parameters and being obsessive about them. I feel part of this behavior is stemming from boredom, which I am ashamed to admit because I always say, "only boring people get bored", and what does that say about me! Its actually kind of funny when I think about it that I am obsessing about eating enough calories but also a little…Continue

I'm new here and I'm really pleased to be part of this community. So nice to meet you all.
And just wow! Today it has felt really easy to follow this diet. I've been making smoothies out of my fruits and it has made it a lot easier to eat enough..Yesterday I really had to force myself of not eating a plateful of zucchini soup (with coconut milk, peanut butter, chili and garlic) I made a couple of days back. Yesterday I ate my fruits as whole and my tummy was…Continue
Life is too short to waste precious time obsessing about the stupid number on the scales or the size on the label in your clothes... there really are way more important things to focus our attention on... get your life in perspective and stop wasting precious energy on things that are not important in the bigger picture...
If we are able to choose what we want to eat and how much we want to eat...we are PRIVILEDGED.
Think for a minute about all the starvig people in…Continue
