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 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.
I have spent my morning cleaning around my place, and hanging out with my lovebird Lemon! I'm very worried about her, her feather plucking has gotten out of control. Could it be a diet issue? She's been to the vet so many times and they say that nothing's wrong.. sigh.. we give her the best quality seeds, nothing seems to be working. She constantly has a collar on and I feel so bad. She's giving me kisses as we speak (:…Continue
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

I never had any bigger problems with my skin, sometime I had a pimple now and then when I was younger, but since I started this raw till 4 couple of weeks ago, my skin has gone so bad.. Really, my face went so wild and it stresses me out a lot. Freelee talked about her amazing acne improvement when she went raw in one of her videos, so I dont know if its normal or not.. Any particular foods to avoid or some recommended remedies?
In any case, happy easter everyone! :) K.
Never in 78 years have I been able to manage more than about 6 bananas a day without revulsion.
This summer, here in South Africa, I have been on a roll once again. By accident and experiment, I have now reached a point where bananas have changed from being my least favourite fruit, to being my favourite and most esteemed fruit.
Long ago I did a 33-day grape island, but experienced no gains.
A few weeks ago I did a 6-day banana island, with fantastic results. Life…

These super sweet raw hcrv cupcakes will make your mouth water for sure.
After sifting through the internet for a good raw vegan cupcake recipe, to no surprise, I was pretty let down once again.
It pains me every time I look for raw recipes, as the amount of unhealthy ingredients, or combinations of ingredients, simply baffles me. Almost all of them mix oil & other fats with dates, which does make me worry for people’s blood sugar…

So yesterday I did not write a blog post but I really wanted to... I started my 24 hour water fast after lunch Tuesday and ended up eating bananas again at 12:30 pm, yesterday afternoon. I had all these wonderful things to say about the fast, it was a really great experience! My bananas also had a little more time to ripen, so it all worked out.
I've posted before that I am a recovering addict/alcoholic. I've be sober sense aug 24th, 2012... In the past year and a half I've been going…Continue
Yesterday was CRAZY busy for me. I worked three of my jobs back to back. My alarm did not go off and I missed my big, banana smoothie breakfast! I munched on bananas through work, but only got 5 in because I was so busy. I had about 45 min for lunch in-between job locations so i did get one smoothie in (about 10 naners).. by the time I got to my second job I realized I forgot to pack my bag!! Only three bananas! I work at Whole Foods but they had no ripe bananas for sale! I ended up wrapping…Continue
