Thank you! I'd love to see this presented on mainstream media. I can have great fantasies!
Thank you so much Freelee! Although I have been "clean" for about 9 years from anorexia, there was still "a piece of it" there (if you know what I mean). But thanks to you and many other wonderful people here, I am not only able to eat happily and not worry, but I feel happier in general and more ready to deal with my all-day as well as lifelong challenges. :)
You have such a big heart Freelee and you are one of my inspirations. :)
Big hugs from Germany. :)
Your videos are really helpful, Freelee. Thank you. Will you consider doing a video breaking down your initial experience on Banana Island? As in, Week #1 compared to week #4? Your struggles, withdrawal/detox, your emotions, etc. over the month? It sounds like that really created the shift.
I watched the FruitFestival video. Is there another one? Many thanks
Great video I have gained weight on this way of eating.I eat a lot of dates and still eat low fat starch "I think I was too thin before" but I still can't eat 2500 calories without feeling sick, less sick than fatty food would make me feel, and my candida "gone". I love carbs!
@ Elisa, yes Freelee I too would love to hear more about your first year as HCRV. I understand that you are now living such a beautiful vital life and have a gorgeous body, but it didn't happen all at once. Shedding some light on your first year would be a huge help and source of inspiration.
Hey Freelee, A great post and a hugely important subject to raise. As food is a necessity, eating disorders are prevelant (mainly due to the media).
I went through years of abusing my body - from my late teens to early 20's.
I don't know what disorder I had, as it was never diagnosed. I was CONSTANTLY thinking about loosing weight, it was what I lived for. The guilt of when I did eat resulted in me throwing up. I hid it well as my husband was out all day so I was free skip all my meals. I'd make his dinner for when he came home and I'd tell him that I'd already eaten. This was easy as he worked from 10am - 6pm then 10pm - 2am - he never suspected anything. At one point I was living off coffee and 1/2 apple a day. I dreaded it when we were invited to dinner at friends houses, but I used to eat the meal provided and then throw it up in their bathroom.
I really can't pinpoint when my eating disorders stopped, but in 1991, when BSE hit the headlines I became a vegetarian. I do know that after the birth of my son in early 1992 (surprised that I conceived), the way I ate changed - I was determined to feed my child a healthy diet. 3 years later I changed our diets to vegan. I have no problems now, in fact, since adopting the raw diet, my digestion is getting better day by day and I'm fitting more in.
This is just the begining for me and I'm so excited about the future (I've never felt like that before).
Thank you for your post, thank you for your site.
Great vid Freelee!! I have put a few pounds on and needed this one. I know the more I master this lifestyle the better it will get. I have been restricting calories since I was 18. Some days I could manage eating only 1000 and felt fine! Crazy. The musical intro is so awesome too.
Hi Freelee, i really enjoy your strory and your background information. I am very curious about your first year as a hight carb raw vegan. You´ve said before that you didnt lose weight first year on this lifestyle. I would like to hear more about your first year as a hcrv, pictures, and everything what was it like for you as a beginner on this lifestyle. What changes you went through, struggles and so on :)
