So I've been going all out on the non-restriction thing, having 10 banana smoothies every morning, another 1,000 calorie smoothie for lunch, and huge bowls of rice and pasta for dinner. My family is…Continue
I have a friend who just had to have her gallbladder removed, and during the surgery her doctors made some disturbing discoveries. She has inflammation (which she says she feels the pain all the…Continue
What kind of exercise program should I be doing along with the 80/10/10 diet for best results? Right now I'm doing strength training 3 times per week with leg/butt and ab workouts. Sometimes I do a…Continue
So it is recommended to eat at the very minimum 2500 calories a day for women and 3000 calories a day for men. But I've been led to believe my whole life that in order to lose weight, you have to…Continue
So I've been doing Raw Til 4 pretty consistently for about a week or so, haven't really been counting the days, haha. My breakfast and lunches have almost exclusively been 1,000 calorie datorades. They're easy to make, and I only add a little water, so they're much more compact and easier to handle than a 10 banana smoothie with the same amount of calories. Sorry, but when I'm going to work in the morning, I don't have time to spend an hour drinking a giant smoothie, and I can't really bring…Continue
I've always been able to get a good amount of sleep, but not at the ideal times... I usually go to bed late, anywhere from midnight to 2 or 3am. I sleep usually for ten hours, sometimes as long as twelve hours. Despite the amount of sleep I get, I still wake up feeling groggy, and it's difficult for me to get up. I constantly yawn throughout the day, too. That's why I've begun to suspect that I get low quality sleep that negates how long I sleep for.
One thing I've noticed doing Raw…Continue
I first became aware of this lifestyle of January this year. I can't believe I've known about this for a year already! And yet I still haven't committed to it totally. Until yesterday.
To quickly summarize my background for those who don't know: I've been vegan for 4 years, but it hasn't been the healthiest vegan diet as I did it for ethical reasons and didn't pay much attention to my health. When I finally started to get into healthy eating about two years ago, I first went with…Continue
About 5 or so days ago I started breaking out again! And I was doing so well without getting any breakouts before that. I have been not following a raw diet totally, but I don't think my indiscretions have been bad or often enough to make me breakout on this scale. It's worse than when I was eating my former crap junk food vegan diet! What gives? I've been eating a ton of white rice (Freelee eats it so it can't be that bad, right?), so could that cause breakouts? Have some people started…Continue
