It's all about Results!

My low fat, raw vegan journey began on August/11 after feeling completely paranoid over food, because nearly all I ate made me feel bad and I was already a whole foods vegan. I had to find a way to eat for my health lest I let myself perish or live with disease.

It was a video by Robert Morse N.D. that helped me make the connection. He said "take cheese, cooked grains and fruit - leave them outside for a few days and see which is the last to get mouldy." - That helped me understand my body had become a compost bin from all the grains I ate, and the resulting toxic byproducts were causing all sorts of ailments. It seems I have a very sensitive physiology that always struggled with the normal way of eating, even a normal vegan diet. So I decided to stop the 'no fruit" approach and give fruit another chance :)

 

On the before photo I was doing 1hr cardio followed by 1hr strength/toning exercises 5-6 days a week for months, on a vegetarian diet of mainly whole foods and all I did was get stronger, but not slimmer or less puffy.

On the after photo (Nov. 23/11) I'd been eating all fruit breakfast and lunch with a cooked low fat carb dinner (boiled potatoes, brown rice, yams, etc.) for 3+ months, and mainly dinner salads for a few weeks after. Doing mild 20 min workouts 3-4 days a week.

 

I saw the puffiness, the cellulite, the oiliness on my skin and low moods disappear. I saw my muscle tone emerge, better digestion, radiant skin and greater energy. Body odour emerges if I eat something cooked like root vegetables. My skin feels super soft and clean all the time. My need for body products has significantly decreased.

 

After a lifetime of calorie deprivation, I now consume around 2k (more if I manage) calories daily and I am now increasing my resistance training for better toning.

Hi Lorian

thanks for accepting my friend request. I saw your before after pictures and found them very inspiring. You look amazing and are my inspiration, because I think we look a bit similar, especially on this photo In%20Polen.jpg, I think we have something in common :-). Although I was very sick when this picture was taken, some years ago.

Hi Lorian thanks for connecting. Nice interview, and you do some really nice work by the way.

Thanks for the request.  You actually have no idea how great a compliment that is to me - Jeff is my favourite singer, musician and artist.  I listen to him everyday, he was such a beautiful human.  I even listen to interviews because I love his speaking voice so much! I will listen to Grace just before I die! My band is in the process of creating a cover of one of his unfinished songs, trying to finish something that no-one ever will. Thank you.  

 

The Auryn is amazing!  When I were a kid I asked my mum to make me one out of Fimo clay after watching The Neverending Story too many times (Is that possible?).

Glad to hear you're in a better (warmer) place :)

 

I'd love to go some place warm all year long, but I'm helping a dear friend get through renal failure right now and my feeling is that I will be here for awhile as she awaits a kidney transplant (could be a few years).  I do love her very much :)

 

This is my first winter off of pain killers since I was diagnosed 7 years ago...so I'm a bit nervous...perhaps I found this raw stuff just in time.  Lately, I've been reading up on inflammation and how some foods raise and lower it.  My biggest problem is that my muscles around my neck get super inflamed at times i.e. during bad weather, stress, foods, etc. and they literally squeeze the bi-jesus out of my neck which has causes me to pass out.  Doctors said it may be pinching a nerve but I dunno?  Luckily this hasn't happened in a while...whew...thank god...but on a lighter note, I am noticing a huge improvement since I've cut out all grains/pastas/refined crap and increased my fruits & veggies!  More energy & less pain please!  LOL
