Starting on Mon 25th June (Australian) I will be hosting a 30 DAY High carb raw vegan challenge on my facebook page. Lots of people excited already, about 400. Join us! Please follow this link to the event page.
Watch my video to find out more --->
Remember if you are not on facebook you could still post your daily journal here. Here is the post from Facebook --->
Time to get your raw on folks! For the next 30 days, EACH DAY please come here and record what you eat, your exercise, water and sleep and encourage others to stay on track. This challenge is only for HIGH CARB raw vegans, 811-style. No superfoods or powders, salt thanks. Example is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtxFC4LHnKo
* Not only the joy of being 100% raw for 30 days but as motivation --> those who honestly stay on track for the 30 days and post here everyday (without fail) will get a free copy of my upcoming ebook!
* If you fall off the wagon please don't post about it here because it can negatively affect others on the challenge. Posts like that may be removed to help keep the high vibe.
* You must be 100% raw and post here EVERY DAY for the next 30 days to receive the free ebook. You *must* use the same thread day after day so I can read your journal. Journals that are all over the place cannot be accepted.
* Please set out your journal like this :
Bfast: 10 banana smoothie
Lunch: 1 head of iceberg lettuce with 20 dates
Dinner: 1/2 jakfruit (med) and a kg of snow peas
(good to include calories)
Exercise: 10km easy jog
Sleep: 9 hrs.
B - 2 oranges + 1C spinach
8 bananas (throughout the day)
L - a big salad with spinach, tomatoes, some avocado + 1 peach smoothie
D - 1 cantaloupe + 3 figs + 15 plums + 4 carrots
Oops, I forgot the stats: 2013 cal / 86/8/6.
Water - more than 3 litres
Exercise - about to do 20 minutes of yoga to cool down
Sleep - not enough last night (6h30), I thought I'd be grumpy but I spent a lovely day with my friends.
Feelings - I'm really happy to be part of this challenge. It's easier than the previous 30 days because I was on my own. I'm also trying to take it up a notch and to weigh what I eat. I also have only organic produce now.
However, I've got a mouth ulcer, which is very unusual for me. Probably due to lack of sleep? Any tips to cure it? Thanks!
Good evening, see you tomorrow!
Hello beautiful people,
Day 3 : 27th of march
Bfast : 700ML fresh orange juice + 1,2kilo of oranges
Lunch : 12 medium bananas
Dinner : 100g black berry + 250g organic dried figs + 350g lettuce
total calories (cronometer) : 2900
Water : 3L at least
Exercice : None, rest day
Sleep : 10h
Feelings : A lovely day although I was at work all day, the more I sleep, the better I feel (:
Hey everyone! Hope you're doing well!
Breakfast: 450g cherries, 100g dates
Lunch: 500g papaya, 100g raisins
Dinner: 700g papaya, 100g dates, blended with 20g desiccated coconut
Water: 3L or so
Exercise: Walked 6 miles
Sleep: 8 hours
Kcal: 1825 (would normally eat more)
Feelings: More resilient than usual.
Notes: Not an ideal day, commitments meant I had to eat a lot of "convenience" food that was around - dried fruit. But interestingly, still absolutely no hassle - I don't seem to be struggling at all. If it continues to be this easy, after the challenge I'll probably just tell myself to commit properly to it. It's definitely the internal chatter that I have with myself when deciding whether or not to eat cooked/ processed food that's the obstacle - now that it's not here for 30 days, it seems much easier.
Breakfast: 3 Fresh figs and 2 medjool dates
Lunch: 3 Bananas and 3 medjool dates
Snack: 2 Oranges
Dinner: Zucchini pasta with a tomato and celery dressing (This didn't go down well :( )
Total - roughly 1500
Exercise - 20 minute jog
Sleep - 7 hours
Feelings - was sick all evening after eating my zucchini pasta, this happened before after eating zucchini so I'm pretty sure I must have some sort of intolerance :/ sad because it was so yummy!

Hi everybody! I have a question. What´s better for the body: to eat at designated times or whenever I´m hungry.
I´m loving this diet! I´m starting to do things I had pending for a long time getting rid of stuff I don´t need anymore... and giving my body the space to do the same thing! Also, I´m getting new ideas... yes, fruits is the way to go!

Today wednesday 3rd day 100% raw
In the order eaten : 2 oranges 2 kiwis, go to town shopping then 4 apples 1 pear 1 romaine smoothie, then 4 sliced bananas with blueberries + 2 bananas.
then went out and visited 3 lots of people, came back and had a salad with cuc+tom sweet potatoes+1/2avocado
+a few peas and broad beans from garden+1/3zucchini + 2 bananas.
Then went out again to this music jam session as it was John's birthday and he wanted someone to drive him.
Felt not very well with pains everywhere on the way back. I drank some water - i had not had any drink as everybody was drinking alcohol there and all they had was orange juice with additives in it, so passed on the experience - and water seems to improve things - , i am all right now.
9 hours sleep , will be glad to have the same again.
