My story is a regular diet, about a year ago I read the book "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" that got me thinking about what put in my mouth. For some time I managed to eat a good diet, vegetarian diet that is and I felt better physically and mentally than I had in ... well, probably forever. Somewhere over the winter I fell off the health train and reverted to SAD eating habit. At the end of march I bumped into a blog post about this guys living off bananas and winning marathon races. This in turn led me to the 80-10-10 diet.
Long story short, my self induced personal challenge is to eat a raw vegan diet for the duration of April at least, meaning I'm on day three now. I am blogging about my experience at barefootnick.com
(yeah, I run barefoot by the way).
My concerns are about cost, time spent eating and still managing to get work done!
Also, while not concerned about it currently, should I be concerned about vitamin B12? And while I see it can be a challenge plus there seems to be quite a few opinions. I stumbled on the low heat dried seaweed "dulse" which seems to have plenty of B12. Is this not an accepted food?
Although I'm new to this diet I think it makes simple sense plus I wake up feeling pretty darn good, sleep well and feel better throughout the day. With only a few days in, this might be my expectations running the show though.
Anyone pulling this off in South Dakota? Fruit isn't exactly ripe around here!
Nice to meet you all
