We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I experienced depression and a ton of health issues and weight gain through eating a "traditional American" diet and have begun to change my life through whole and raw foods as well as making the move towards veganism.

I'm here because I want to learn how to eat and live properly and through my research this community appears to be one of the best places for me to learn from.

I've lost 25lbs this year through a whole foods diet and exercise and I intend to continue losing weight through whole and raw foods and physical activity.

I do have type II diabetes and am working on healing this through lifestyle changes. Honestly, I need support and information on this journey.

ps. Thanks for all of the great Youtube videos - they have been a source of information and inspiration.

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I adore walking/hiking with my dachshund (although if I keep getting healthier I'm going to need to get a taller dog to keep up with me). I also love cycling although I need a new bike so I can get back into it.

I love books by Tom Robbins, Anais Nin, Charlotte Kasl, and well - I love books so the list could grow to epic proportions.

I love gardening and spending time puttering in my kitchen and I also love learning about life and health.

I'm interested in Buddhism and I love life these days.

Changing my diet has helped pull me out of crippling depression and has helped me rediscover how happy I can be (and am).

I mainly need support and information (community is a vital part of my development). I'm just learning how to do all of this vegan and raw food stuff and am exercising for the first time in my life - suggestions and tips are always wanted.

I believe that I can heal not only my body but also my mind and life through a LFRV lifestyle and would welcome any support.

I honestly believe that this is the correct path for me.

A Change of Plans.

Posted on March 11, 2012 at 5:15am 2 Comments

I'm going to spend some more time following Dr. Neal Barnard's  Reversing Diabetes book before I go entirely raw. My bloodwork has come back as "non diabetic" the last few times I've had it done but I don't want to screw myself up by rushing too quickly into a total raw diet.

I currently eat 90% or so raw and will continue using fruit and sweet potatoes as my main carbs but I don't really want to take any risks without my Doctor's support (she is really forward thinking and is…

So I've managed to stay true to my vegan pledge aside from a few slip ups (like not knowing that weirdos put casein in soy cheese or, getting mad and eating a greasy pizza one day) but I've still made really big changes and I'm ready to work toward going completely raw now.

When I first starting eating a plant based diet I was around 90% raw and I felt cold/chilled all of the time. Even on a super warm day my teeth would chatter in the smallest breeze and I got sick of it and…


My First Official Day

Posted on August 24, 2011 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

This is officially my first day of pre-meditated vegan eating in many years. I have been following what I like to call a "mostly macrobiotic" diet since November 2011 and have just recently hit a point where I feel it's time to take the plunge into veganism.


I am not going to go into a ton of detail about my past relationship with food aside from stating that I have been vegetarian and vegan in the past and that a vegan and mainly raw lifestyle really does do hand-in-hand…

Hi Christine, Its nice to know you! Thank you for accepting my friend request. I have been a vegetarian three or four times in my life. It was never more than a year each time. I feel that if I had had more support I might have lasted longer. Anyway I am hoping to do this as a permanent part of my life now. I am doing it for health and wellness. I am doing it for weightloss. I am doing it because I feel when I usually eat ,it was an unconscious eating. I am doing it because I am apalled at what the meat industry has become and is. I wanted to wish you well and say this site has alot of people and information to access if you are interested in learning more. Its a friendly site.

Your welcome, kale is defiantly my veggie of choice I especially love to juice.  Just packed full of minerals, if there are such a thing as superfoods kale is one of them.
