I've been raw on and off for the past year and a half, staying mostly vegan though out. A few months ago I decided to follow an 811 diet and thought it was/is fantastic. All the other times I went raw I was eating mostly veggies and drinking juice. My stomach didnt agree with my eating habbits but Im totally fine on the fruit!
Anyway, I'm in love with the life style but everyone thinks I'm crazy. Even my overly health conscious vegetarian boy friend thinks I'm listening to a bunch of crazy talk. -Sigh-
I don't know what to do.
Nice, just be happy the people will bring you fruit!
If I would ever watch TV, it would be this show :)
Hehe, I don't really watch TV but I know the concept of the show. Maybe I'll give that a shot with some people. Thanks
Because they're not feisty enough to go against mainstream (even vegan and vegetarian mainstream) and do it themselves. Only you are walking the talk. Relish your vibrance.
In converstations with family I always keep the focus on how great fruit makes me feel, just like you said. How the heck can you argue with feeling good?
Well the problem is who want to find a way find it, who want to find a reason find it too.
I come from a family that hunts and fishes all the time. It is traditional pastime in our family. I am looked at as not a "real" man by my family. I do not care. I find it sickening that their lives are based around the exploitation of animals. Every single time I am at a family gathering, everyone asks me about my diet and how I am doing. I ALWAYS get asked about protein, and if my sex drive is weaker. Gets pretty annoying, but I just do not pay it much attention and try to stay as positive as I can.
I refuse to hang with downers. I don't care if its family or not. Why hang with downers?
People are welcome to come eat, train, chill with me but I won't chase and 'try and convince' them. Did that for way too long. Waste of life time.
Besides, there is WAY too many people out there that wan't people like us to rub off on em.
Think about it.
