It's been a while

I logged back in and i guess it's been four years since i posted here. I included starches and cooked veggies for a while, but i'm trying fully raw again for a while. Not for life, because i don't think some cooked veggies and starches are bad for you, but for a while to try it out again. I'm glad i got to reread what i wrote when i first tried it 6 years ago. See More

Bicycle Commuters / Fruit Powered Transportation Group

Do you believe that transporting yourself on a bicycle is the most efficient form of personal transportation? Do you prefer using fruit instead of gasoline to power your ride? This is the group to discuss leaving the car behind, and using the bicycle as a viable form of daily commuting. See More

Hi, I'm Ryan, and i am looking for friends to do RAGBRAI with.

My home state of Iowa, (U.S.) has an annual cycling event that i love. About 10K-20K riders show up each year, and it is the oldest and largest ride of it's kind. The route changes every year, but it always crosses Iowa from West to East, in 7 days. This year is 418 miles! The ride is a lot of fun. It's great because of the welcoming atmosphere that the rural Iowans bring to the table. There are a lot of great amenities that are available on a ride like this. There are bike mechanics, bike…See More

A Little Farther Each Day...

I have decided to become a runner. I am using an app on my phone, which is actually really cool. I have never used technology to track my progress before. I am now able to see my runs on a bar graph now. I go just a tiny bit farther each time i go out for a run! The difference is something i might not even notice, if not for the GPS tracking app. I am also very happy that i took a random turn down a wooded trail today on my run. I had to deal with some STEEP hills, but the trail went a lot…See More

Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
After finding myself with too much weight, in addition, i had no athletic ability, i decided to make a change. In March 2012, i switched to a vegan diet, but i had no idea what i was doing. After playing with my diet a little bit, i decided that fruit made me feel good, and that too much fat slowed me down. I found out that cooked food gave me acid indigestion. That was when i discovered "The 80/10/10 Diet". I am here because i would like to be part of a community that understands my goals. I have signed up for a 471 mile bicycle ride over 7 days in July 2012, and i would like to be able to finish it. My goal is to finish it.

The books i've gotten into lately include "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease" and "The China Study" plus 'The 80/10/10 Diet". I love cycling and taking long walks through nature. Movies: Forks Over Knives
Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I'm still trying to dial in exactly how many calories to have in a single meal. I'm also wanting to see other people's fruit ripening corner/table.

8 months to train for Half Marathon

Posted on March 13, 2014 at 10:44am 4 Comments

I have not run more than a 5K, but i think i can do a half marathon in 8 months. The snow is melting and it's time for last year's knee injury to become last year's problem. It still hurts, but i have my life to live, so i will run on it when i can. I'm running on the treadmill while it's still cold out, and as long as i stretch and go slow, it's not that bad. 

I am also training for RAGBRAI again, so i have a lot to look forward to this year. 

Here's to a…

RAGBRAI 2013

Posted on July 29, 2013 at 2:33am 0 Comments

My knee is not fully better, but i just couldn't sit at home and let RAGBRAI happen, and not be there, so i did the last 2 days. I was pretty happy with how well my knee held up. 

I was really happy with the amount of good food i found this year. There are certainly vendors happy to sell you all sorts of junk food, just like anywhere else, but i also happened to find a lot of vendors selling good stuff. I bought some fresh made watermelon juice after the ride from a guy who…
