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 :

What a day, just going to list all the food together, as that's what it was like today!
200g dates with 25g desiccated coconut
1697 kcal (Just another difficult, emotional day). about 85/5/10
Lots of love, keep going everyone! xx
Jackie - Those percentages don't matter...mostly because your cronometer is at 865 total calories which is way too low. What you need to focus on is the pie graph on the right. Your nutrient ratios should be 80/10/10. It looks like fat makes up about 20 to 25% of the pie - which is a bit high. So to answer your question yes. There is nothing wrong with eating nuts/seeds, as long as you keep to the 80/10/10 ratio. If you need more information, check out the book. It gives you all the reason why this is optimal for health! Good luck!
Thanks Lala ! I haven't read the book but I'll get the hang of it by drinking green juice and eating fruit Ha! I was craving nuts but I guess I won't lose any weight if I keep that up hey. *)
