Hey fruit bats,
My name is Dave Gregory and I've been interested in the raw vegan life style for about 3 years. I really want to do it and as you know it can be tough. Anyways I'm a stand up comedian based out in Los Angeles (burbank) and I want to know if there's anyone L.A that would like to have a pot luck. I want to do this with someone so we can keep each other motivated and accountable. I usually do things on my own but this is something that's really fun and exciting and…Continue
Alright so I've been High Car Raw Til Four Vegan for a little over a year and half, and I am loving it(: I have never felt better about myself, and I have never been healthier (not even as a soccer and basketball player in high school). My body is going through some MAJOR recovery after 7 years of bulimia, a disordered view of what beauty is, and a negative attitude toward myself and life. Now I'm feeling confident and content with all aspects of life, and I'm so excited for the progress and…Continue
I'm sad that the soft fruit season is coming to an end, they have been so tasty this year, especially the doughnut ones.
I will miss my nectarine smoothies (recipe is here)…Continue
I have been eating a whole lot of bananas for the past eight days. attempting to do a full out banana island. with all of the bloating (and I mean massive ugly bloating), I have decided to jump islands... banana island during the day and HCLFV island at night (cooked). since island jumping, I have noticed a lot less bloating. Don't know why that is? My dinners have been staying the same: rice noodles, 1/2 head of lettuce, mixed steamed veggies and occasionally…Continue
So there's no doubt that I am facing some immune issues! My immune system seems to be running on fumes and needs a good boost. a week and a half before the gallbladder attack, I had a week and a half long UTI. Strange, because at that time I was one week into a juice feast. never had I had a UTI barge in while I was doing any sort of cleanse. now the GB is getting some rest and my pains are much much less now, I have no fever and the past two days my energy levels were pretty decent!!…Continue

Guess who had an amazing day yesterday?
YES IT WAS ME! Of course I hope you too had a great day ;).
Anyway, sticking to 801010 was really easy. I stayed in bed until 2 pm, watching Dexter. I had a banana-strawberry smoothie, a box of dates and 2 apples. After all this relaxing I went to visit my family. My little brother+nephew were there too and we had a great time (though they also thought I was a bit annoying sometimes, because I was SO HYPER from all the carbs). I felt like…Continue

Today marks the half way mark my 40 day challenge to eat 100% raw. Honestly at this stage I am feeling as if I should and could up counting because I really believe there will be no end to it. Why - because to date I have gone from 94kgs to 86kgs which is a loss of 8kgs in total, but to be fair I did loose 2kgs before I started the raw food diet just by giving up tea and coffee the week before.
So in actual fact in twenty days I have lost 6kgs. And I mean I have really lost…Continue
Today I got out of bed at 6.00am even though it was cold and did the same as yesterday even though I wasn’t going out anywhere. To me it seems that deciding and preparing what I will eat for the day, hits a sweet spot in my head. I mean now that I finally have some knowledge about calories and fat intake, if I start putting my meals together first up for the day, instead of just opening the fridge when I starving and hoping that something jumps out at me, I believe it will pretty much solve…Continue
Hey guys! Im from Chile:) I'm 15 years old soon to be 16 and recovering from a past of anorexia. I do exercise 6 days a week which are pretty intense i would say( pilates, cardio , hiit, strength training.) I would like some advice and guidance from this community to become an 80/10/10er. I need help with my parents, friends, school and traveling aspects:/ I would like some advice and support please :) thanks xx
Something wonderfull happened
After about 2 years of stuffing myself with as many fruits and other carbs as possible my body no longer wants the cooked carbs any more. One day I just started to realise how bloated I was even after a simple meal of cooked potatoes with some veggies. I especially started to realise this when I finally cut out gluten. My body now craves mostly fruit. And I'll have some nuts too but I feel those are getting heavier by the day so I think I'm going to…
Today is Day 448. Wanted to blog a few of my updates. The two pound I thought I lost was just a timing issue. I am still at the same weight I was a week ago. Still bloating like crazy! I have been experiencing lots of energy over the past week. I still have times I feel completely lethargic, but have been feeling an overall increase of energy. The energy is affecting my ability to fall asleep right away, but I am going to allow my body time to adjust to this new level of energy. …Continue
Feeling tired, bloated, puffy and non stop gaining weight. Thinking Raw til 4 may not be for me. The thought of salads do not excite me, the thought of fruit does not excite me, but I don't know what else to do. I don't feel like I'm getting what I want from Raw til 4. And while I love it and it makes eating a lot easier and more exciting, I just don't think its a good idea for me -- at least until I'm properly healed.
I imagine that's the reason Freelee can eat as she does and not…Continue
Today is my birthday! And what we do in this occasion in that we bring some food to the office to share with our colleagues. Of course, I nether eat anything that is bring since is is nether vegan. But today is my birthday! (I know I said it already) So, I decided to show my colleagues that vegan is more than just lettuce and shredded carrots. So, I made brownie bites from this easy and addictive…Continue
So Yesterday was my first day eating fully raw!! Before that i was eating raw til 4 until cooked meals just didn't seem that appealing anymore. It was so weird because it was sorta a gradual thing. I never got sick of eating fruit, never got sick of the taste or flavor, but with cooked rice and potatoes, I just didn't really want it anymore. I am so happy now!! I know my digestion will probably improve, and iv already noticed a change in my energy. I had tons of energy while eating raw til…Continue

Hi all, i'm just wondering if anyone would know if frozen vegetables like peas and beans are "fully raw" :P
I've heard that sometimes they boil them as part of a cleaning process. I haven't really ever eaten them frozen before as fresh is always better, but it could save a bit of money frozen.
Once upon a time I attempted a raw food diet to try to quell my horrific IBS. It was a complete failure and I was more sick than when I was eating meat. Safe to say I fell off the wagon relatively quickly and tried a paleo approach, to find the same results. Sick sick sick.
I know there is no cure and no treatment for IBS. No amount of Imodium helps my case. After 18 little green pills in one day I decided enough was enough and I couldn't imagine what I was doing to my…Continue
