I was brought to 30 BaD by a friend and also hearing a lot about this kind of lifestyle and how it can help many health issues and weight maintenance. I have fibromyalgia and medicine is just not doing the job, and I hear food is the best medicine so I am reforming myself and hopefully the constant pain eases! I also want to lose weight, and have heard this is a great way to do so. My eyes were OPENED by a speech I found on this sight by Gary Yourofsky. I agree 100% with everything he said and wondered why I hadn't found this lifestyle sooner! My only concern about raw veganism is cost--I just did my first shopping trip and my mom was not too pleased with how things added up. (I am only 16 and cannot afford to buy my own food)

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I like playing flute, reading, writing, and listening to music. I read and write mostly fiction, but I have read biographies and am working on an autobiography detailing my experiences with the loss of my Father at 13 and my spiral downward into anorexia and exercise bulimia...and now with this new HCRV chapter in my life, I will include this! I also love baking and have a small business....but I think I need to find some alternative ingredients after watching Gary Yourofsky's speech. Even then I will stay committed to raw and bake for pleasure and for others. I loved to cook too, but I can't do that with raw so it will just have to be my sacrifice--a small one! I love animals and want to become a veterinarian and I am so glad I found this lifestyle so that I can stop acting as a catalyst for their destruction.
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?
Cost. I am 16 and my mom is buying my food, so she is not too happy about the cost of everything I'm eating. I will either have to eat way less than other HCRVs or probably have to just do bananas... I'm not too thrilled about that but I really want this to work! I'm SICK of fibromyalgia pain and being fat as well, and I will never consume animal products again either way (raw or regular vegan).
