Hello! My name is Nanci. I'm a 16 year old girl living in cozy Pennsylvania. As a teenager in modern society, constantly being plagued by what the media tries to tell you what you "should" look like, I have been on a life struggle to achieve that "perfection". Growing up, I was raised on the standard American diet, and had always been about 30 pounds overweight. This never bothered me until my teenage years, where I began following all sorts of fad diets, including starving myself. In November of 2012 my school began to notice how thin and weak I looked. At the time I never noticed how awful I looked, and was too terrified of gaining weight. I knew I had to recover, but I knew the methods that doctors told me to go about it, would only lead to relapse. They wanted me to go back to that standard American diet, including meat, fast food, and all refined foods. I refused to go back to that diet, of course I'd gain weight, but how would that be healthy? After research, and despite doctors protesting, I decided to recover from what was diagnosed as anorexia on a vegan diet (eating whole foods, grains, legumes, veggies, and fruits) I did not eat processed foods, and my health felt like I was at an all time high. I was able to take up running and yoga, two things I had never been interested in before, due to how lethargic I was! Still, I calorie restricted out of fear, and would make up for it eating jar after jar of nut butters, and I knew it was not quite right. After further research, I stumbled upon the HCRV/801010 diet. I found it extremely interesting, and after reading "The 80-10-10 Diet" and following others who follow the diet, I knew I had to give it a try. I have only just started the diet this month, July 2013, but I must say, my energy level is incredible! I have never been in a better mood in my life, and I can't believe this diet is as legitimate as it claims! I can finally eat as much as I want, and never worry about overeating; What a dream! Not to mention, eating fruit all day? What could be better?! I am extremely grateful to have parents that are so supportive of my diet, despite the fact that they follow a very standard diet, including meat, fruits, and veggies. They no longer eat processed or fast foods, as they are influenced by my raw diet. I decided to join 30bananasaday, hoping to connect with others who are just as passionate about the diet as I am and to offer support and advice! (:
