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.

Wonderful news! I'm so glad you had the opportunity to share with your mum and especially that she understood your lifestyle! That's brilliant!
I just got your video on this last night so Im going to give it a try. This is day 1 for me.
small amount of almond milk sweetened with dates
10 peaches for lunch
6 macadamia nuts
6 peaches and a small salad of romaine, basil, tomato, celery and lemon for dinner
snack 4 peaches and 1 date
1 liter of water
Oops, where has my previous post gone?! Sorry about this, I must have hit the wrong key.
Anyway, DAY 5 (29/6/2012):
Food - 4 plums, 200g mango, 5 bananas, 8 dates, 1/3 head of lettuce, pumpkin seeds, 500g eggplant, 500g tomatoes, 200g zucchini, 1/8 cup cashew nuts, 1k watermelon
2058 calories or more, 80/14/5? I'm not so sure as I ate out at lunchtime. The salad was good but I'm not very good at guesstimating so these numbers are just an average.
Sleep - I had a good night's sleep last night.
Water - more than 3 litres
Exercise - I'm going to do some yoga for 15 minutes
Feelings - I'm feeling fine. I'm especially relieved that my lunch at the restaurant went on quite well. My friends were very open-minded and we went to a vegetarian / vegan restaurant where we thought it would be quite easy to get a good salad. However, the waiter seemed quite reluctant to change anything on his menu. With a little persuasion I finally got it. But there was no fruit salad available as a dessert!
Tonight, I've made the nuts-bellpepper recipe I saw on The Raw Food World site. It's supposed to be 1 red bellpepper + 1 cup of macadamia nuts but of course I couldn't help twisting it. Thus I used 1/4 cup of cashew nuts (soaked for 2 hours) for 2 small red bellpeppers and used my food-processor with the S-blade before blending it with some of the soaking water. It was quite good with the raWtatouille (eggplant + tomato + zucchini) and my baby daughter loved it and kept dipping her fingers in it. Success!
Have a great evening, see you tomorrow!
