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
Wow, I just got a dose of what it is like to stop eating so much fresh fruit and veggie! For 4 days out of 5, I ate mostly SAD. Carud! I am feeling really dehydrated, got a fever blister, adn got some wicked painful zits. been more oily, elimination is foul, my knee adn back started getting really painful again. (it…Continue
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) --…Continue

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
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…Continue
Stand on your head!
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!
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…Continue

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.
I have lots of favorite drinks!

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

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…
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.…Continue
I am going to start the fruit diet tomorrow i might snack oon some now but i want to make sure this is the right path i should follow after alot weight loss i'd like to maintain it r lose bit more but not gain.
my question is if i should eat a little bit of calories like 1200, before eating alot since i've been eatting very low calories like nothing
what do u think?
~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....
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…Continue
I want to start off eating fruit but i'm coming off a regular sad diet and being bulimic isn't any help. I don't want to gain any weight but would love to try this plan for life.
