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.

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 :

I didn't sleep well the night before, so instead of going for a run when I got home from work, I decided to take a nap. What I had intended as a couple-hour nap turned into 5, effectively doubling my sleep yesterday. I'm feeling pretty good this morning. :)

Finally, returning to some days of eating enough. Took me a while to get used to how to eat enough calories without Bananas (nearly ripe, btw). Today felt right. I feel this is how much I'm supposed to be eating every day.
Wow, so that was Day 30, huh? Didn't seem like long at all. This challenge has probably gotten me into the habit of documenting my food intake. As well as posting, I've also been saving my posts every day in a word document. I shouldn't be surprised if I open up the word document tomorrow out of shear habit.
Wow, 30 days already!

Feelings: My dates are on their way. I can't wait until they get here! Also, I feel like 30 days have gone by really fast on this lifestyle and I'm definitely going to continue. Now it's the next 30 days (plus today) on raw vegan plus no overts.

Thank you Freelee for doing this, it was nice knowing lots of people around the world where on the same boat with me.
So very happy that i made it too, it has been a real pleasure and i feel truly like staying raw, i feel so much better and really enjoy it, all the heavyness of cooked days is gone. Thanks ever so much Freelee and everybody, it was also so enlighning to read everybody's experience, although it ended up crashing my computer, i had to learn to understand the machine a bit better, which is not a bad thing. Looking forward to the 1st of August if i can.
Today started with : 3 peaches, a few loganberries and blueberries
Lunch : smoothie of apples, pear, romaine and 4 dates, which i find perfect for hydrating me for the day and have all year round.
Bananas slices, blackcurrants and grapes mixed
Tea : Salad of cucumber slices, celery bits, 2 small mushrooms with 3 tomatoes
Dinner : 1 Romaine and 3 carrots smoothie with 4 sliced bananas in it
Later i made a bowl of bits of celery and cucumber with a tomato and date sauce, delicious ! It only just beginning to occur to me that, if you are creative with your food, it is more satisfying so you are less hungry ! So looking forward to more of this sort. . .
