I just read your comment on The Runners. You poor dear having to watch that milk run spectacle - I think I would have felt like vomiting myself. How wonderful you have come to this diet so early in your life! Just keep following your own path and be strong - you are impacting your coach and teammates even if it is not apparent right now.
Hey just wanted to elaborate a little bit more for you since you actually had talked to this dude (didn't think you would have). When I talked to him on the phone he said that eating 80/10/10 at his place was awesome and that he would provide everything I needed to do so. He was familiar w/ the diet and even said Doug Graham used to be roommates w/ him. I was psyched.
When I got there it was a diff. Story. He would spend abt $40 a week on food for 4 people (def not enough for someone doing hard manual labor all day). And the work I was doing, it was very little farm work and learning about farming and much more like manual labor.
The guy had odd behavior. You would ask him questions and he would just stare at you. Then you would be doing something and out of nowhere he would be yelling at you. Him and I clashed early and often. I didn't have a good experience there nor did the 3 others who were with me at the time.
I've since met others who have been there and didn't exactly have glowing recommendations.
I'm not saying you shouldn't go there, just sharing my experience. Hope that helps. The other farms I've been to are in Hawaii so I can't give you anymore scoop on the south fla scene.
Thanks for the advice, i will keep that in mind :p Congrats on your raw vegan life, cant imagine how you would feel after five months of this lifestyle! I am looking for new friends to talk to about living this way, incase you ever want to chat! ;)
Thanks :) I just now figured out that where the comments were lol. I can believe it was a nickname before you went fruity. My sister has a friend named Anna, and people call her Anna Banana.. for no reason lol.
