So I bought a treadmill at less than half price at the store because I bought the floor display, and I am loving running every morning. As mentioned in a previous post, I didn't exercise regularly. Well now I jog on the treadmill 30 minutes every day. I have not been sore once (thank you fruit!) and I am getting toned and in shape SO MUCH FASTER! I always thought that the exercise didn't matter that much, but I have the energy now to workout and I am working out like crazy and I am getting…Continue

Social situations can be tricky. I am documenting these things I try to see what works for me, because I am still pretty new to this lifestyle. So far, everything is going well socially and I don't feel like the social aspect is too much of an issue yet.
People kind of treated me weird anyway for being a vegetarian, but they got over my animal free diet pretty quickly, and they are getting over the high fruit diet too.
So here is what I am doing:
First, I never…
Maybe it's just me, but sometimes I really miss banana bread! I used to make a killer vegan banana bread back in my days of eating sugar and bread and junk. Buuut a couple of months ago when I tried my first Banana Bread Larabar, I was totally hooked; they taste juuust like banana bread but without all the refined sugar and oils. So recently I decided to make my own, and they turned out just as good if not better! So here's the recipe:
Protein Type vs Carb Type and what does an all fruit diet do to blood pressure issues. Dr Mercola stated to get you blood pressure in check before eating lots of fruit. What? I have a lot of anxiety issues in my mind. I confuse fight or flight with fruit sugar overload and am thinking high blood pressure from fruit. But its just fear. Its all in my mind. It sounds crazy but any logic helps.

See By Way of Introduction for my previous (first) blog. Thought I'd "check in" on how its going, and keep this record for myself.
Most junk eaters and even vegetarians when they see you eating more than 1 or 2 bananas, they are traumatized as their programming is so deeply wrong regarding food (eat animals, a lot of animal fats, drink yourself to death, take meds that modify your brain connection paths, it's okay!).
Immediately they are like: "Wow, 5 bananas, that is a lot, I eat one and I feel stuff !" - Well take note that I had 5 more just before you saw me and my digestive…Continue
Recently I asked a friend of mine, a lady with considerable knowledge of all facets of pregnancy both personally and via others' experiences, for her take on this vital process of life and on how a mother might best meet with success for herself and her little one.
So impressed was I by her wisdom, that I asked her to write her thoughts down. Given the positive reception the few times I've shared it, it's time for a larger audience to have the opportunity to benefit.…Continue
I love getting my workout in early, it really gets my day off to a wonderful start, and puts me in a better mood all day long. It's also nice to have the evenings free to relax with my family and friends, play tennis, head to the pool, grab dinner, etc. Check out my favorite tips for getting up early!…

I find that emotional stability follows a super healthy lifestyle. I’m by no means perfect in this, but when I get the diet right, keep well away from toxins, spices and anything other than the tiniest amount of fat, plus hydrate properly and exercise loads, then emotions that previously dragged me down no longer seem to be there. In fact, I am MORE emotional overall but with mainly beneficial emotions. It’s like a cork is taken off the bottle, allowing out emotions of joy and sometimes…Continue
Wow! i cant believe it!
Its the morning of day 6 of 80 10 10. I took a week off from all training because of back pain. I had already cut down from 15 hours a week to 8. Anyway I went raw 5 days ago and have had a great week. Sometimes i had a dizzy spell or sudden energy drop mainly in the early evenings, but they would only last half an hour or so. I have got better at eating higher numbers of fruit in one go, though to get down 10 bananas, i have found blending them…Continue

Here it is:
"Do you value life?"
Now, I haven't met someone who says no to this simple question. The next question we should ask is naturally,
"Do you value your own life?"
I find that nearly everyone answers yes to these two questions. From here, we move to the question of improving our lives:
"Are you willing to give up any habits that are lowering the quality and longevity of your life?"
When selling products,…Continue
It is unfortunate that in this society, meat is sometimes looked at as "masculine". Actually, nothing could be further from the truth, especially medically and scientifically speaking.
