I am only a month in to 100% lfrv, the first week i lost 10lbs and since have not really lost anything. I have seen some changes in my body but they are small, I want that low fat raw vegan body!!!!
How long did it take your body to change?
I know this is not the focus, i am earning my health, through a new lifestyle, but i'm inpatient
It is a shame that Wolfe, Clement, Kulvinkas, and many others, despite their contributions and popularization of raw, have never experienced the true benefits of health, fitness and wellness as provided by the a low fat raw vegan fruit-based mode of eating. (perhaps public awareness is their sole strength and contribution, but that is enough). For them to lambast the superior results of years of discipline of those who actually ARE serious about health is unacceptable. Here is what I…Continue
So I just decided to journal what my thoughts are as I am going throught this process of adjusting my diet and lifestyle, simply to keep track of changes and realizations that take place along the way. So far I am a little more than 2 weeks in and one thing I decided over the past 2 days was that regardless of weight gain, I am going to continue eating without restricting my calories. I have been pretty easily getting at least 2000 calories by midday, and by the end of the day I've had…Continue
Its always a crazy few days in the run up to my monthly 'ladytime', I am not a psycho but I do get terrible cravings for certain foods plus my digestion goes haywire anyway at this time.
So In a bid to 'keep it real' and not give the impression I am little miss fruity perfect, I am fessing up that I have just had a 3 day binge on cooked veggie food (yah it wasn't even all vegan boo hoo).Mostly chocolate, fries and other high fat cr*p like veggie…Continue
But first, get a load of these summer tomatoes. Flavor beyond your wildest imagination! Just add tender lettuce and nothing else! DELICICIOUS!! Eat them now because when they are gone, they are gone.
THE KILLER STINKIES…Continue
My wife was telling me a very interesting story about one of her uncles.
They were living in very small towns in Quebec, Canada where all the information we have today was not flooding in these pre-internet times. Around 30 years ago, he came to visit his sister. In his bag, he had a blender and was concocting everybody at the family reunion, some raw smoothies, and he was always taking the occasion to share all the benefits of his vegan lifestyle.
Yes he was…Continue

Most junk eaters and even vegetarians when they see you eating more than 1 or 2 bananas, they are traumatized as their programming is so deeply wrong regarding food (eat animals, a lot of animal fats, drink yourself to death, take meds that modify your brain connection paths, it's okay!).
Immediately they are like: "Wow, 5 bananas, that is a lot, I eat one and I feel stuff !" - Well take note that I had 5 more just before you saw me and my digestive…Continue
I find that emotional stability follows a super healthy lifestyle. I’m by no means perfect in this, but when I get the diet right, keep well away from toxins, spices and anything other than the tiniest amount of fat, plus hydrate properly and exercise loads, then emotions that previously dragged me down no longer seem to be there. In fact, I am MORE emotional overall but with mainly beneficial emotions. It’s like a cork is taken off the bottle, allowing out emotions of joy and sometimes…Continue
It has been an interesting few weeks. I found a fig tree in my neighborhood yesterday on no one's property and there was one semi-ripe enough for my oldest daughter to eat it. A family member gave us some awesome fruit & veg from the garden, including melon! We got organic raspberries at 99 cents a basket. I found some great resources for starting up the fruit bank and cost-share and most importantly I've planned the whole weeks meals for my family.
The weather is…Continue
... is to give all the best to my fruit smoothie princess :)

I just bought some red bananas for only 10 cents more a pound and I've tasted them for the first time in my life. The texture is very creamy and the sweetness is different from the yellow cousin, but I'm not sure if it is more or less sweet, weird isn't it? Oh well, I really enjoyed them.
I've watched DR video about the fruit paradise in Thailand ... I was traumatized by the amount of fruits I never even heard of in my life. It is such a gift to be able to discover life like…Continue
I have recently started reading the Ringing Cedar Series written by Vladimir Megre. The first book is called Anastasia and it is an amazing book about a young womyn who is at one with nature. In the book they talk about the power of wearing cedar pendants. I have always had a fascination with trees and working with wood and thought I would experiment with making some jewelry from fallen trees. I started by making the cedar pendants I read about in Anastasia. I gave them…Continue
Just made this little vid this morning to give an insight into a typical morning for me on the 80/10/10 lifestyle. I am on week 7 and I have dropped a dress size (from uk 14 to uk 12) WITHOUT restricting food intake or calories.
I feel really good, I such long stong nails they look false!
I just made this video about why I swapped one style of raw diet for another
This morning I had a large smoothie that was quite simple but very delicious.
9 medium bananas
4 medjool dates
1 C frozen strawberries
It had just the perfect hint of strawberry, it was a lovely texture and it was a beautiful light pink color. I am afraid I was too excited about drinking it and didn't take a picture of it, but it was just delicious!
I typically start my day with a smoothie because I can take it with me to work or school. I…Continue
Ok, after doing super well with LFRV, I had this intense craving for pasta that stayed for days. so I had some. iwth a cream sauce, cheese, etc. I also started drinking a 'light' powdered tea. for 2 days I went from 80% raw/100% vegan to 20% raw/SAD. Holy Cow (no pun intended) I feel like crap.
My sinus issues came back hte sensitivity of my left ear came back with the itching. my lips dehydrated, burned around the edges, I got a fever blister where my lip split, my gums…Continue
I went off dates for a little bit so this is my new favourite way to eat my 900kcal breakfast.
I call it the Bubblegum Smoothie cos it tastes like old-fashioned fruity bubblegum and is a 'cheerleader pink' colour.

I have a new blog post, and I spent a REALLY long time on it, because I truly wanted to make something valuable we could all share with our loved ones. I don't know about you, but I am starting to get really frustrated every time someone asks me where I get my protein, lol! Although, I know I would do the same if I was in their shoes. So I made this post as an answer to all of the people who ask me the seemingly inescapable protein question.

It's been almost two weeks since my last post. I've been probably 95% for almost a week now. I went to my boyfriend's family reunion for the weekend (three days) and brought lots of…Continue
