30 Bananas a Day!

hello awesome friends at 30BAD,

I am looking for a partner to go on a 30 day 100% 80-10-10 raw challenge. 

I am a 27 year old male that has been on and off the raw wagon for almost 4 years. I eat raw for a few months at a time, feel great.. then the bad habits set in: cooked food, overeating.. all the while never really enjoying my meal fully because I know my body wants fruit. 

Often when I eat raw, I eat allot of fruit but then I convince myself I can eat a huge cooked food meal every day. This meal is typically not high carb-low fat. 

I am about 20 pounds overweight. I have recently made some big investments towards a healthy lifestyle. A membership to a martial arts gym, a Bianchi road bike, and a Vitamix.  I do kung fu twice a week and road bike/ cycle twice a week.  

I think if I see some results in my weight/ training it will be inspiring enough to keep me going. I am always thinking raw and telling friends but I am covered in chub and bad eating habits!

I am tired of not being true to myself! I would love any support or suggestions.

peace and love be onto you all!

Hi! When were you planning on starting your 30 day challenge? I was tentatively thinking I'd start one in August, but probably won't follow through with it if I don't have someone to keep me accountable. 

I've basically been HCCV for the past two and a half years with a three month lapse into an 'eat whatever I want' vegan diet (usually fruit breakfasts and lunches with high fat, processed food dinners). During that three months I gained nearly 25 pounds (not sure because I don't weight myself often, but my clothes don't fit anymore) and became really depressed. I got back on HCCV in the beginning of June 2012, and for two months I have been eating fruity breakfasts and lunches with cooked potatoes, rice, and/or veggies for dinner (no salt or oil). Since then, I am much less depressed but don't seem to be loosing any weight, so I want to try 100% raw so I can feel better and fit in my clothes again.

Anyway, there's a little about my struggle with food and my current situation. Let me know if you're still looking for a partner for you 30 challenge :)

Hopefully, a support group starts up here for August 1.  (I'm not on facebook.)

I can definitely relate to your saying that you believe in raw (thinking raw/telling friends) - yet, aren't exactly the outward shining example you'd like to be.... I too, right now, don't reflect raw eating and fitness.... aka, I have chub and bad eating habits.... and, am not being true to myself.  My outward actions don't reflect my inner passion for this lifestyle at all.  I want to align my beliefs and actions!!  I'm not who I truly am (if that makes any sense).  The chub and bad eating isn't truly me.... yet, I've disconnected from the real me.

I'm ready to re-connect (or find it in the first place!).

This is great! Well it is august 1st and I think it would be a great day to begin. 

Because its a bit later in the day and I have eaten cooked today, would you all like to start tomorow?

lets brainstorm on some ways we can keep each-other 'on point'. I was thinking a facebook blog or separate email discussion. 

We should share with each-other what we eat (including portions) as well as our exercise. 

So if I hear back from you guys we can start tomorrow!
