I am still transitioning from cooked vegan, to raw til 4, and whenever I try and have a high calorie fruit meal, I get aches in my arms/shoulders even if I'm only about 400-500 cals into the meal. This usually only happens when I eat dates, apples, or have a smoothie with added sugar (it does not happen with banana smoothies), and the aches last around 10 minutes. I believe these are sugar aches? I do not want to tell my…Continue
I've been feeling dizzy and spacey, as well as very weak, all day. This is something I feel often, and it usually helps a TINY bit when I salt my water (1/4-1/2 tsp per liter), but it's never enough to make me feel normal. I know this can't be detox, how could it be, at least? I had no ability to think today. Luckily, I'm unemployed, so I didn't have to work, but I felt like a complete brainless vegetable. No energy or coordination to go on a run, either. I couldn't stomach any more bananas…Continue

I started 80/10/10 Raw Till 4 a year ago. Ever since then, I have binged a handful of times on bags of tortilla chips, cans of salty beans, and other savory treats because I was SO stressed from work (vegetarian grocery store) late at night. I was feelin 10000% great during my first 5 months, especially during the times when I didn't rely on those fatty salty foods!
My weight stayed the same, I would estimate around 115-120 lbs. I'm 5'4". However,…Continue

I've been feeling a little down these past couple of months, mostly due to feeling unfulfilled/unproductive/unhealthy, so my dad said, "Write about your pet monkey!"

I fell off the waggon for a looooong time. My weight has been fluctuating and my body has been in pain all the time. No more. Im going to start with an apple-island!
I love apples, they are the #1 food for me. I'd do bananas, but organic apples are cheaper now because they are in season, so they can be locally grown and... their taste is delicious! ;3
Please support me, everyone, I gotta do this right!

I am not a large girl right now, (size 6 to 8(mostly 8)) so a part of be believes that this is my body settling at a weight it thinks is healthy for me.
My inner legs retain a lot of weight. And by weight, I mean fat. My quads are rock hard, but for some strange reason my inner legs will not loose the fat.
It's not a big deal, but I can still grab a handful of fat on my inner thighs and around my arms. So will my body stay at this weight no matter what? Or is it going to be like…
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
