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!

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
