Running/Treadmill issues

Hi Guys, Jogging is my sport of choice. I really enjoy it, and it has helped me get lean and feel super fit in the past.  However, since moving to a more industrial part of town I am unable to go for jogs outside. To get around this I joined the gym, and have been using the treadmill. I  typically do about 5K 3 or 4x a week. I set the speed to 8km/h, incline 2% . The problem is I am finding it does absolutely nothing for me. Months later, my fitness has not improved. In fact I feel almost no…See More

"my colour was virtually black (very dark brown). And it has changed several shades lighter-now a noticeable medium brown. I haven't been documenting the transition. I just sort of noticed one day, several months into raw vegan eating. "

Oestrogen and cancer

Hi GuysOne of my friend (in her early 20's) was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. As you can imagine, she/all of us were thrown by this finding as we didn't realise it can happen to someone so young-thankfully it was found to be to be a benign. Her experience got me researching about the breast cancer and I've been reading a lot on excess Oestrogen and its harmful effect.  I know meat is a source of excess oetrogen, and good sleep, healthy eating and exercise can all help effectively…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.
2 years ago my BMI was close to obese (and I mean 0.1 away) and I was told that my blood sugar was quite high, not quite diabetic but fast approaching the 'pre diabetes stage' which was alarming as I have a family history of diabetes and know full well the difficulties it entails.

Following that I started to diet. Conventional dieting involving all the usual stories-eggs, protein etc plus exercise. It worked. But it was very much crash and burn. 1 week intense restrictive diet, 1 month almost binge eating-feeling like crap-restricting etc. And even though I was losing weight-my weight was yo-yoing, and inside I felt like crap. Tired, lethargic, constipated (sorry if TMI).

So I had a friend who was a vegan and playing with the idea of raw veganism. I went on google, found banana girl videos, and was encouraged to give it a try. At first I didn't know how to make decent raw vegan food and was apathetic to eating…which meant I was eating little and feeling delirious as a result. And then came eating too much nuts and almonds, which didn't make me feel very bad but definitely did not help me lose weight.

Over the course of a month,I get a feel for what food I liked the taste of, and became better at making raw vegan dishes (now I actually look forward to eating them!). The result on my body was remarkable. My skin-clear, my energy levels high, my mood-happy/stable (previously quite up/down), my weight-very rapid reduction-
My health-I can't remember the last time I was sick..(previously always feeling sick/frequent coughs/infections)
my sleep-more restful (previously waking up tired)

Generally, such an amazing turn around for me. And this is while still not being 100% raw vegan. I've reached the stage where I know this is the right and healthy thing for my body. And it's just absurd that I am not doing it all the time. But one thing I found hard was not having any support (I have been doing this sort of on the DL). For example while I make raw vegan food for myself at home, I feel some social pressure to have vegetarian when out with friends etc.

So, long story short. I am hoping to meet like minded people who can share their experiences/advice with me, if they have gone through similar things. Also have a LOT Of questions still which I would like some answers to and I figure this is the place.

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?
Does this mean I can post my questions here?

1. What is your take on sparkling water?

2. How do you manage social situation-eg going to restaurants with friends? I'm at uni and my friends just think this sort of think is bonkers, and none of the restaurants local to us really cater for a raw vegan diet.

3. How can I deal with family situations? Like parents telling you 'when I heard you visiting I made you your favourite …[insert something the previous me would like]'

4. Hummus-is it raw?

5. Are dates/figs bad?

6. And quite important actually: How does this diet effect sugar level. I know DR puts his sugar results up on videos etc. But does he have a family history of diabetes (because I do..and well my situation could be different).

Thanks in advance.
