I really want to thank everyone who offered me advice as well as everyone who ordered from me/donated to me... I went on my first unstressful grocery trip in 2 months this evening. I am so, super happy now. I got lots of strawberries and citrus and cucumbers! My daughter was so, so happy to have "alot of fruit". Even my mom is asking me to make her smoothies!
I still have enough money to last me at least 2 more weeks if I shopped the way I did tonight and much longer if I…Continue

I was relaxing at my friend's house when we found a durian hidden in a mini fridge in their garage. How we found out was because, when we went into her garage it smelled as if there was a dead body in there. Needless to say we had to investigate. A few rounds around the garage and we find the smell is coming from their minifridge. We opened the minifridge and found, what I thought to be, GOLD. I had never tried a durian before, I figured durians just smell THAT bad. We open it, it looks…Continue
I'm now on my second consecutive day of eating completely 80/10/10. My wife's been inspiring my to commit to the lifestyle and the success I've experienced this weekend has really got me excited about it.
I've actually been trying for months to dive into 80/10/10, but haven't had much success. I've been a committed vegan for 10 years but the first five years were not that health-focused. Honestly though, those five years were a whole lot better nutritionally that some vegans…Continue
Relapses are scary, but this one was especially so. I knew i was hurting myself. But as i watched myself make the same devastating choices that i had made countless times before, it only made me hate myself more. I had chosen to hurt myself so many times that i came to believe that it was what i deserved. Everyone thought i was a freak anyways right? Why fight "their" ideas of me any longer? It is so much easier to just give in. And i did.
I had never truly dealt with the…Continue

I have never quite understood our medical system's idea of a "healthy" body weigh, in fact, i downright do not agree with it. The "healthy" range is set by our averages of "normal" patients within our culture, aka, the average weight of people who aren't too over weight to experience [serious] health complications. I don't necessarily think that the numbers in the range are overweight, but i also find it very hard to believe that someone who falls slightly below them is in any imminent…Continue

Breakfast - 10 bananas straight Lunch - 6 bananas and 5 apples w/ water Dinner - Raw Tomato Sauce
Today I was helping my uncle with computer issues, he was suprised to see the abundance of bananas I had on display near the kitchen. I told him a bit about it and he was very thoughtful and told me my aunt has done similar diets. (very cool) After I wrapped up with him I took a much needed 6 hour nap 4:30-10pm then awoke because I for some reason thought I was…Continue

Yay, well over a week into the diet. The time has flown!
First, the positives: I'm a lot more focussed- can concentrate a lot better on my work, though because I have so much energy I kinda wish I was bounding around outside :) My digestion is SO much more better, amazingly better even. My stomach doesn't feel bloated. Even after big meals, I find I can jump around without feeling sick. I had worried that my teeth would feel sensitive after lots of fruit, but the only…Continue
I'm prepping for a conceptual photo shoot concerning Vegans, which will be sent out to different advertisement agencies, featured in calendars and put up online for art buyers in the future.
Basically, what I'm trying to achieve with these images is to explain, via visualization, to non-vegans, what you can achieve if you switch to this…Continue
For the past years, I have suffered from varying degrees of depression. It got to the point where I was questioning whether I wanted to be alive or not. Do I want to live? Do I want to die? What do I have to live for?
Is it even worth it?
I used to think like that. It's a really scary world, hanging on the edge of a cliff, your heart beating so fast because you might fall... and at the same time asking yourself what's so good about getting…Continue
One of my many new year's resolutions was to go raw again, and I'm kinda excited about it :)
Today I had...
Mango sauce with courgetti: (600g courgettes, 303g mango, 21g spring onions, 5g basil, 28g rocket, 57g coconut water). This was amazing. I think I'm going to be eating this several times a week.…Continue
Happy new year my fruity friends!
New year actually has nothing to do with it, I've just recently decided that I'm ready to start trying to make a difference. I'm gonna be making lots of videos from now on.
Here's another meat eater trying to assuage his guilt with a monologue on why factory farming is a good thing. I just added extra footage so that the viewer can see his point more clearly. If you are of a sensitive disposition, don't watch. It's not pleasant. Feel…Continue
I really need to. So I started yesterday.
First stop! Hair cut. I think I'm done seeing the world through a curtain. I'm not so scared anymore of eye contact. Especially with my friends, who I was with yesterday. I guess I'll be changing my profile pic as soon as I get back from Tahoe in a few days. ;)
Second, take than dang jacket off. No more hiding. Honestly- why am I hiding from myself? I certainly know how I look, and if any one else's about me mattered, they have…Continue
I did it! I went vegan today. No animal products today and from here on out. I intended to eat 100% raw, but I was craving something cooked. I told myself that I would be allowed carb-rich cooked foods to get me through this beginning, so I had brown rice. Plus, it really helped up my calories, but I still only made it to 2160. Of my calories, I had 85% carbs, 10% fat, and 5% protein!…Continue
