My phys of exercise textbook says Fat is the primary source for energy?

Obviously I know with my gut that carbs are best, and my physiology of exercise text book says that carbs are used first, and fats are used after several hours- best for prolonged exercise, which I…Continue

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD.

We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
My real name is Mara :)

I've been vegan since May 27th, 2011 after watching the film, FOK (Forks Over Knives). I started out vegan for better health- SAD diets and calorie counts weren't cutting it for me. Gained some weight while trying vegan replacements and nuts over that first summer! I was experimenting with raw vegetables since November 2012, fruit since February 2012. I was aiming for HCRV as of June 2012, working on replacing cooked meals with 811 recipes- going through the old memories and letting go. I was very excited for life- more energy, better skin, digestion, sleep, emotions, etc.

After I graduated from Luther College in May 2013 (psychology bachelor's), I met with the love of my life and we ate fully raw for much of our time while first meeting. Over the past couple months, we have dabbled quite a bit in lower and higher fat cooked vegan foods- and boy, we have started to feel rotten, tired, sad, depressed, fat, and ready to be raw again starting this year of 2014 and beyond.

We consider our hearts as raw fruitarians- we don't believe in eating greens or nuts- maiming/killing plants, nor destroying the seeds which grow the plant. We just want the fruits!

I am certified in Permaculture Design through Regenerative Design Institute in Bolinas, CA, as of June 2012 and I desire to develop my skills in building stuff with recyclable or scrap materials- something I've wanted to do since I was a kid.

My partner and I want to make fruit more sustainable and available to people or to the world in general through fruit growing and foraging. We live in Sacramento, CA and want to meet more fruitarians who wish to spread the lifestyle together.

Need to Recommit

Posted on November 14, 2012 at 10:38am 4 Comments

I need to recommit to fully raw rather than HC cooked.  My mental health is dwindling, succumbing to self-doubt, sadness for no reason.

I'm still eating a lot of high carb cooked, as I haven't totally figured out that it's bad in extreme, personal experience. 

The thing that is TOTALLY making me question high carb cooked is when I don't get enough carbs, I tend to start questioning myself and my actions A LOT MORE than necessary.  Also, I have to start TRYING to be happy. …


Is it just me or focusing on % not so effective?

Posted on July 26, 2012 at 12:11pm 1 Comment

Is it just me or is focusing on percentages of raw-ness not very effective when it comes to eating raw?  I know that saying "I'm 100%" or "I'm 99%" can be convincing for other people once you've become raw, helping them see in a more numerical form that you're only eating fruit, greens, veggies, etc. 


But in terms of changing over to the diet, I am not so sure that it is helpful.  I see a lot of discussions on flip-flopping and monitoring day-to-day.  I am a newbie and…


I hit the wall of salt! Celery powder to the rescue!

Posted on July 17, 2012 at 6:59am 3 Comments

After about a month of raw vegan, I hit the wall of salt!  I am definitely trying this salt-free dressing recipe- or something like it- to deal with my cravings tonight!


Does anyone else have great tips for salt cravings- either replacements, recipes, or encouragement?

Raw Lessons #1&2: Little Voices and Cooked Food HURTS!!

Posted on July 13, 2012 at 8:00am 7 Comments

So, as I have inevitably had a few cheats over the past month and a half, most of them happening in the past two weeks, interestingly enough, NONE of them have gone over well.  My first raw lesson learned: cooked food sucks.  Of course, I think I have not been eating enough calories on some days, and the next thing I know, I get cravings for cooked food.  I honestly believe that my body is telling me, "You aren't giving me enough calories, and it's painful because I need fuel, so I'm going…

Hi Mara! Go right ahead and use my photo, I encourage it. Any details you need just let me know. I'm going to be creating my own youtube channel here in the next couple of weeks and I'm gonna be going over everything; my entire weightloss journey.

Hi, Mara, thanks for the add. :) Truth be told, I don't eat all raw either. But I've learned to let go of the guilt about it. I am where I am, and I i still love it. For me it's about bringing more positivity into my being as much as I can.

What do you study in school?

Thanks! I have been a vegan since 2003 and recently trying to go 100% raw. The experiences and problems that you are having is quite normal, and you should not worry too much about it . Just remember a change like this does not happen overnight. Always set small objective and think long term gains. As long as you have DECIDED,COMMITTED, you will SUCCEED.                                     And buy the way the new photo you posted shows a beautiful,fresh,enrgetic and revitalized face. Please stay with this diet you will be all right.

Oh, fun. My sister graduated from there. It's a pretty happenin place surrounded by beautiful bluffs.

I see you're in a Power of Now group. I'm in the middle of that book right now. It all makes sense, but it's so much at once!
