My name is Katie, I'm 24 years old and have recently began the high carb low fat diet. I have been vegan for about a year and a half for compassionate reasons but that does not mean I was healthy...I certainly wasn't. I have had massive issues with food since I started dieting when I was at school, probably around 16 years old. I was in a terrible cycle for years....I wouldn't let myself eat very much (usually well under 1000 calories a day) but when I slipped up I felt so incredibly guilty that I would raid the cupboards and binge...I felt out of control. After bingeing I would feel even more guilty, so I would make myself vomit it all up again. This cycle would repeat itself over and over again until I was bingeing and purging 4 or 5 times a day. Then I became really sick....I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease last Novemeber. I have been in and out of hospital the past few months but starting to get a little bit better. My illness has made me seriously reevaluate my eating habits and I'm annoyed with myself that it has gotten to the stage of chronic illness before I have changed my lifestyle. I have done ALOT of research....books, YouTube, documentaries....and thanks to Freelee's blog and YouTube channel, I have decided that this is the lifestyle which will help me to recover from Crohn's and my eating disorder. I'm so excited to becoming healthier than ever but I need support while I do it.

Are you Connected?
no single
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I have been reading a lot on nutrition lately and the books which really hit home for me was The China Study. I've also really learned a lot from The Starch Solution and I'm about to start 80/10/10.
Before I was sick I did a lot of running, so I'm that once I am recovered I will be able to get back into that again. I also really enjoy daily yoga.
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?
As I'm trying to recover from Crohn's I would love some advice on what foods to eat. I am also a bit anxious about falling off the wagon as I have a history of disordered eating. I hope to meet other high carb, raw vegan people and get lots of motivation :-)

Hey Katie - thanks for finding and adding me so quickly.
Feel free to message me as often as you want with any questions or rants you have - I've been high-carb for about a year half now and quite settled into it, in the weight loss stage.
I'm part of a facebook group chat of 10 other high carb vegans - most of us in Dublin - and we meet up when we're free for stuff like eating out and cycling and stuff.
Look forward to talking with you :)
