Hi I'm new, trying to start this week. Strangely, I'm finding myself really intimidated by the fruit I have all around me. I think I have this notion that I can't just pick up *a* piece of fruit and…Continue

I've been veg for over a decade and went raw in 2009. This went very well— I learned a lot and felt great. Even did a blog about our experiences as my partner and I tried different raw recipes, books, etc. Then "life happened" and I caved under stress, began eating a little cooked food, thinking that was okay (quinoa, sweet potato, etc). But this led to other cooked food which eventually led to refined flours and sweets. Arrgh! :) So 2011 has brought me — instead of health — tons of crippling pain, acne, and a crashed endocrine system.
So for the past month or so I've been looking for a program to help me get back on track and STAY on track, for good. I ran into Freelee's vegan bitch video(s) on youtube (I just LOVE the "you make it my business!" video!! Bravo!!!). In the sidebar on youtube I started watching the raw food talks and realized this "kick in the pants" attitude is just what I need right now to help me jump back in ("transitioning" is NOT working -- I need to just DO IT). So here I am.

My biggest challenges are getting past the detox phase of going raw (I turn into a real bitch when I have toxins flooding my blood stream! Liver has in the past had trouble keeping up with the flushing), and bananas give me the most intense stomach pain I have ever experienced. It doesn't happen when I eat just one banana now and then, but back when my body was really clean I started using bananas in a lot of smoothies over the course of a couple days and I ended up about to die (lol) from the pain. No other fruit does this, although I am sensitive to tropical fruits for some reason, despite loving the taste (mango, papaya, etc. makes me queasy). I'm open to reaching a point where my body can handle these fruits (if, say, it has to do with food combining, ripeness, etc.) but will need some TLC on this issue as I try to transition to those particular fruits.
