30 Bananas a Day!

This is my 9th day 100% raw. I have been building up over the months leading up to this being 60-90% raw. I tried cold turkey first but the so called detox symptoms were too heavy and I was working at the same time so I took it back a notch and built up to it. Now my worst detox symptom is that I'm itchy, everything else has been uphill, even lost 7 kilos of visceral fat (the type the builds up around your organs) and water just in the build up and I am already slim.

 

As I live in Japan (Tokyo) right now I would love to know if there is anyone in the area that is a raw fooder or 100% vegan as well. I wanna get together eat, exercise, and talk to people as this has radically changed my social life. I am not invited out much anymore as all my friends are very 'normal' so to speak.

 

The bulk of my exercise is gymnastic strength training. People tell me I am too old(29) for this kind of thing but as long as I am trying to defy my lifestyle that I have had until now I am happy to try more despite the looks I get. I never really exercised except some Tae Kwon Do when I was a teen. 

 

I am enjoying everything this lifestyle is bringing me but some more people alongside all cheering each other along would be nice.

and at least some of them are into the fruit side of raw :)

There'll be a lot of gourmet high fat probably, too, but I find the company of raw foodies in general awesome.  Just bring a wagon of fruit :)

Hey darlin hang in there.  Are you familiar with meetup.com ?  Put in your area code and search key words like raw food or 811 etc.  I did a quick Tokyo search and there is at least one raw vegan group there--it has 450 members.  They haven't been that active, maybe a meetup/month.  Sometimes the organizers really appreciate a bit of support by sending them ideas, and offering to help organize.  I've made at least 50 raw-food friends in my area by connecting with raw meetups in Vancouver.

Congratulations!

 

I will be in Japan for around a month this coming fall. I was in Taiji for 3 weeks this past November for the Sea Shepherd Cove Guardian campaign. This being said, I am in no way anti-japanese, and infact I loved the culture while I was there! Everyone I encountered went out of their way to be very friendly and helpful. I very much look forward to going back, even if it is morose and difficult being in Taiji.

I hear you. I also love this lifestyle so much, except that i am feeling very lonely at times. And to have 'loving and nurturing relationships' is very important (together with sugar, water, sleep, sunshine, fresh air, exercise...). Somehow i just don't manage to meet up with any 801010ers (because there aren't any around where i live at the moment). And as you said, many old 'friends' stop being in touch because one is just somehow weird for them. 

 

Anyway, i should stop being whiny and just be glad that there is this website, where there is someone online for 24hours a day, and the people on here are so swell it is incredible!

 

Hug and love to you!

Olive
