At the beginning of the summer I finally started getting into cycling. Recently I've been doing a 3 to 4 hour ride once a week with commuting at least 12 miles every weekday. I also started doing 10+…Continue
I come from a calorie restrictive background and in the past year I've gained about 15 pounds on high carb vegan. Durianrider recommends 10 g carbs per kg bodyweight. I've been eating around 3000…Continue
So I've been doing this high carb vegan thing for about 9 months now. I am still gaining weight and I still have acne.This a long story but bear with me: I come from an eating disordered background…Continue
After having one cycle in a year and being put on birth control by a doctor who seemed to think I had PCOS, even though I had no cysts on my ovaries, then getting off the birth control after starting this lifestyle, my period is back! Seriously, it may not be something to be happy about, but I jumped up and down and couldn't stop smiling :) My mom was really worried about me not cycling but she doesn't have to anymore! This is the first period I have had "naturally" in over a year. Feels…Continue
I'm tired of being afraid to go fully raw. I know it sounds weird to feel that way, but I always think about, will I have enough fruit? will I have enough money to buy fruit?

But, I'm ready to bite the bullet…Continue
Today I went to an Asian market up in Philly and got some really cool fruits. I got mangosteen, Vietnamese bananas, hami melon, white dragonfruit, lychees, durian, jackfruit, apple pears, and some GIANT mangoes (I believe they were called apple mangoes).
I'm waiting for some of the fruit to ripen, but I tried the durian and mangosteens today. The durian was not too bad, but not something I would want to eat a lot of. Not sure how people love the stuff. The mangosteens were pretty…Continue
So today marks one month of me being a glucose glutton! I haven't been totally 100%, but did raw till 4 for about a week and a half. The time went by so much faster than I thought it would and my mood has changed significantly. The depressing thoughts had all the time before have occurred less and less. I've come to realize that even though my body is not how I want it right now, I can only get better from here. Got my first case of bananas and been doing banana island for the past 3 days…Continue
