I've been a high fat raw vegan for 3 years, and before that I was vegan. At first I really felt energetic, rejuvenated, and healthy--I lost weight and my athletic performance improved--however, these effects were short-lived. After 3 years eating about 60-70% of my calories from fat I found that I started gaining weight back (particularly if I wasn't working out 2 hours a day), my skin was frequently sheeted in acne, and I frequently crashed after runs longer than 20 mins. I came across Freelee's youtube channel by chance and was inspired by her journey from conventional raw to LFRV; I've since converted to the LFRV lifestyle. It's only been 2 months since I switched to LFRV and, despite some digestive difficulties, I've experienced significant benefits to my health and athleticism. My skin is almost clear, I wake with more energy (don't need coffee anymore), and most days I feel like I could run a half marathon. I went from 11minute miles, to 8 minute miles in 30 days--what an improvement! :) So, I'm jacked on fruit. I can't wait to see what other benefits are in store for me.

Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I'm looking for support. Obviously it can be difficult to stay motivated when you don't see immediate results. For me, it has been helpful to watch videos and read articles about HCRV on those days when I'm feeling a little discouraged. I'm generally quite positive, but it is nice to connect with people and see that there are others out there going through, or that have gone through, what I am dealing with.
