Christmas is always a time where people over indulge in unhealthy food and give each other equally unhealthy presents. I want to gift people things that agree with my lifestyle. No one in my family is vegan and they pretty much think I am crazy or insane and my dad asked me yesterday if I'm depressed (I mean where did that come from?! I just spent 5 weeks in the Canary Islands having the time of my life!! lol)
I want to buy my brother's partner's son a vegan book. He is…Continue
My name is Martina, I live near Brighton UK and it would be fantastic to know other people around the area that are on the hclf vegan lifestyle! So anyone who can relate to the feeling of wanting to meet people that share this interest and experience please leave a comment!
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!

So like I said in my last post, I'm a total beginner with this whole lifestyle and I just feel that it's important to document my feelings and progress while transitioning. Not only will it be good for me to keep track of things but it also allows me to get advice from those who want to share!
So I made the…Continue
So I am relatively new to this whole lifestyle. I've always considered myself to be somewhat of a healthy eater and relatively active. I figured if I was getting in enough vegetables and keeping high-processed "junk" food to a minimum( with a treat every once and awhile) I was doing better than most average Canadians. It wasn't until I really started diving into all the documentaries, youtube videos, and books out there about the vegan lifestyle that I realized I could do…Continue
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…
I was on that other forum, I have founded a group for vegan on that other place and I was reading some threads looking for other vegans.
I stumbled upon one where one of the participant said to another one that animals are doing worse to each other in the wild. The guy replied by posting many pictures of animals cuddling.
The first one posted a picture of a chihuahua with big pink glasses and verbally abused the other one...
I was just stunned at how strong his denial…Continue

Do any of you guys know what can cause pimples on this lifestyle? I started getting a couple a few days ago but I'm not sure why. I haven't dramatically changed anything in my diet, and I still feel pretty great overall. I'm not really stressed either, so I'm not sure what could cause the pimples.
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
Bored of eating the same thing every day, or bored of all the bananas....
Here are my thoughts and tips on getting variety
Hi Fruity Ones!!!
Today I wanted to share that I am on day five of Banana Island and am feeling way better than yesterday! Still bloated but whatever!
I have a pic from two years ago that I found recently in a pair of jeans that were my absolute FAV!!! I don't fit into them anymore :(
I was juicing a lot and of course eating 100% plant based... and was the slimmest I've been in a very long time. Fast forward to today ~ I tried on those same jeans and…Continue
Hello Fruit Bats!!
First off, please let me express to any readers who share advice, I greatly appreciate it!! I'm learning of this lifestyle and want to make the most of it and eventually share with others my experience and my reasons for making this my diet of life and longevity!!
Now!! I caved this afternoon after feeling distraught over a bloated belly from my banana milk breakfast... and being bloated from the night before. I have said it many times that I…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

So in February 2014 I found Freelee's Youtube channel. I was instantly captivated by the information she was sharing with us, and I started researching into this lifestyle. I became vegetarian two days later. A month later, I decided to be 'mostly vegan' - I ate vegan meals whenever possible, but did have vegetarian meals when there were no vegan options e.g. at restaurants.
For a while I debated being fully vegan, but I didn't want to be that one annoying person at the restaurant…Continue
