Hi guys. I opened a discussion a couple of days ago about how I was emotionally struggling to cope with the initial weight gain on this lifestyle, as I've been struggling with self esteem issues for…Continue

Hey guys! So I just recently made the transition to the HCLF, raw till 4 vegan lifestyle. As in, it's been maybe two and a half weeks or so. My previous diet before this was already vegan and very…Continue

Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
Hey guys, I'm Carolina! I'm 18 and currently a senior in high school. I go to an American high school in Brazil and am fluent in Portuguese and Spanish as well as English. In the fall of 2014, I'll be starting my freshman year at the University of Miami so if anybody is near the Miami area, please add me as a friend! I'd love to meet fellow fruities.

The reason why I came across 30BaD is probably similar to many other women who are a part of this community. I lived my entire childhood and early teens being healthy and confident. I never paid much attention to my diet because I was always very slim despite eating whatever I wanted.

However, some time after I turned 16, I suddenly put on a lot of weight, despite not changing anything about my diet, exercise or lifestyle. To this day nobody knows the cause for this weight gain. Starting then, I plunged into an agonizing diet hell. For years I searched for the answer that would give me the slim body I used to have. And in the process, I developed an incredibly unhealthy relationship with food and my once high self-esteem went down the drain.

But when I came across Freelee on YouTube, I felt like I'd finally found what I was looking for. The more I searched high carb, low fat veganism, the more it made sense for me. I was ready to let go of my food obsession, my negative thoughts and self-hatred, and of course the extra kilos as well.

What I hope for my journey in this lifestyle is to not only go back to being slim and fit, but to also find true health. I want to be liberated from my obsessive thoughts and finally have a healthy relationship with food (and myself) again. I want to thrive, and be everything I desperately need and so deserve to be.

Are you Connected?
no single
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
Horses are my passion. I am a competitive horse rider and have been riding virtually all my life.

I am also (more recently) a healthy living enthusiast, and a social justice advocate of sorts. Most prominently, I promote veganism, animal rights, environmentalism and feminism. I believe in the equality of all people on this planet, regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity or sexuality.
Durianrider & 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! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
Most likely, my biggest challenge on this lifestyle is going to be overcoming the initial struggle with weight. I am heavier than have ever been in my life and since starting to eat a raw till 4, high cawb, low fat vegan diet, I have started to put on even more weight. Because I greatly struggle with self esteem, I am going to need as much support as possible to get through this phase. I know that all it takes is patience and trust in myself and in this lifestyle, but it's definitely going to be a challenge.
30bad is a fruit-focused vegan internet community which promotes a high carb fruit based vegan lifestyle free of any animal products. Our forum does not tolerate encouragement of anything contrary to this. Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings. We also require our members to post with proper netiquette. Therefore, please indicate your intention:
I will comply because I like totally agree with all this
