In this article I cover 3 important meat concerns that pose a serious risk to public and environmental health: antibiotics, hormones, and toxins.
Artificial hormones that are widely used to promote growth in U.S. beef cattle, dairy cows, and sheep increase the risk of cancer in…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.

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
How much salad is "normal"?
As part of my ongoing series on rethinking normal eating habits, I recorded a video of me chowing down at a vegetarian buffet restaurant.
So, how much salad can you put down?
Have you ever not eaten a fruit you really loved for a while, only to rediscover it? Do you like longhan fruit?

Today i woke up late but i still went on with my 1L of water and i stuffed 10 large bananas into my blender and whizzed away. its really nice to see them drown in the water and then change texture. i put in 200mls and because they were larger than the ones i had yesterday, i filled my tumbler and still had excess. so i drank it up. yum!
i was late for work! lol but that didnt stop me from slurping away my lil tumbler of prized juice :)
till this day, i still…Continue

I went through the most horrific night of my life but all well worth it. Yesterday I had my third dental appointment to undergo the removal of mercury fillings I have had in since childhood. Yesterday my dentist decided to do a super session and remove the final 3 plus fill in my 2 wisdom teeth that had cavities since child hood on the left side of my face. Here is the post video, you can also see the video the night of the pain on my channel.

So I just decided to journal what my thoughts are as I am going throught this process of adjusting my diet and lifestyle, simply to keep track of changes and realizations that take place along the way. So far I am a little more than 2 weeks in and one thing I decided over the past 2 days was that regardless of weight gain, I am going to continue eating without restricting my calories. I have been pretty easily getting at least 2000 calories by midday, and by the end of the day I've had…Continue
I've been eating 80 10 10 style for 5 days now, I feel great!! I think I am getting about 2500 calories a day in, but I think I need to up it because I fairly active..
Anyway does anyone know the name of that calorie counter used? Or where to download it?
