30 Bananas a Day!

I've been doing this diet about a month, and it has been all positive besides the fact that my friends are unsupportive. They question why i do it, and because i can't go out to eat with them, or because i don't want to go party with them, drink, smoke, then they have decided my company is not worth their time. Has asyone else had similar issues? I love the way i feel on this diet but i feel like i have lost everyone close to me.

group cyber hug for Ashley!!!!!! Yeahhhhh! Heheh that must be heavy on your shoulders in a few minutes ehehhe

aww! :)

People giving up cigarettes get new friends, this is great opportunity to get all sorts of new friends, whether they are only giving up red meat, becoming a modified vegetarian, or vegan, or even raw. Get diversity, do what I do, my only rules for friends are being considerate, not being bigoted, racist or sexist...if they share common interests, they become closer friends. Less in common, they are aquaintences that I REALLY get along with. Some I can spend only minutes with (their passion is shopping, baseball, etc..) and others days with, canyoneering, rappelling, adventure running, kayaking/camping, etc.., and there are always the ones who I will hang out for a few hours with while we learn from each other--gardening, whatever. Whole different and exciting selection of friends. Even the Raw foodists of other types will be more accomodating to you than your SAD friends.
You may not have to give up your existing friends, you may just spend quality time with them doing the things you have in common and things you have a history of doing with them that do not involve eating, partying (that way). They may even like your new life and be intrigued by it.

us vegan Ashley/Ashlee's need to stick together :)

Why can't you go eat with them? Being HCRV doesn't mean you need to cut yourself off from having dinner with them. You can order a salad and bring your own dressing. Have a potluck and bring your own dish for them to try.

Also, if your friends spend most of their time partying, drinking and smoking...perhaps it's time to get some new friends. Like friends who enjoy watching movies, going to the park, etc etc...

I do go to dinners, events, etc...even paid dinners to observe birthdays, anniversaries and so on that I cannot (will not) eat. I eat before, and tellmthose around me that I am not there for the food, it is not ABOUT THE FOOD...I am there formthe community, comraderie and the event. And please do not make an issue out of me not eating...( do you want my share?)
If someone does make an issue, I point out that they should be happy and saying "More for me"...
And yes, bring your own lemons and/or salad dressing. Imalways have my chopsticks in my pack, pocket and car...I only use forks and silverware when in a fancy restaurant or with all strangers. Imeat "only" with chopsticks the last 30 years, I am surprised at how many strangers do not even comment. But htat is just me being me--consistantly.

Yes, I found some people lost interest, some people think I've lost the plot and others just treat me weirdly. People find it a bit strange and tbh it's helped to weed out people that weren't really my friends.
