I have been vegan for 8 years and the last 2 have been mostly lowfat. I have tried numerous times to go raw but haven't been successful. After reading 80/10/10 I think I can finally do it and came here for support.

Dr. Calwell Essylstein, T. Collin Cambell, 80/10/10, Eat to live, forks over knives, simply raw. I love exercise and ride my elliptical 65 minutes a day. I also love biking, walking and swimming in the ocean if I am in a tropical place. I try to lift weights but that is something that I kind of have to push myself to do. I am totally into all discussion and learning about anything health related.

Ya, you can't beat yourself up over the bumps in the road... I think the best way to start is to look at your progress like the stock market... is the general trend positive? If so, then consider your transition a success!
For me, the decision to go HCRV was so easy. Maybe too easy. It's been 1 month this Saturday since I went HCRV.
My biggest challenges are 1) I am the only HCRV in my house so the transition has been a bit difficult when I am not eating enough... it's so tempting to reach for the high fat food; even some of the animal products like cheese and ice-cream. 2) I love peanut butter, but even a serving takes you over the edge as far as the fat content is concerned. 3) Going out with friends is still a little awkward (I guess I am still shy to talk about my decisions about going HCRV with people who are clearly not on the same path).
I made a youtube channel though to help. I find that talking about, and sharing my thoughts on, being HCRV recommits me to my choice. Even if no one follows, it's like I recommit myself to my HCRV choice every time I push the little "publish" button on the video. It's almost like... I said it, it's out there, there is no turning back. (I don't know, maybe that sounds crazy, but I find it super helpful).
I see you have a blog! Im totally going to check it out!
Im so excited it's almost Saturday Market time! Do you go to the market in Salem? I think this lifestyle will totally change the way I go to the market lol!
