Epiphany about edema, dry skin and drinking three litres of water a day

Started this discussion. Last reply by noelle kells Aug 21, 2012. 10 Replies

It has always confused me that people complain of edema and dry skin while indulging in a food source that is primarily water.  Then on top of that we have to drink 3 litres of water a day! I had my…Continue

Optimum nutrient absorption?

I'm a wee bit confused.  Isn't the theory that the healthier you become the more able you are to uptake nutrients from less??  Alot that I have read so far seems to be about more, more, more. Isn't…Continue

Last year I decided that as a personal trainer I wasn't making enough impact so my husband and I up and sold everything and moved to the bottom of the South Island so that I could work towards a bachelor of nursing. I thought to myself that change needs to come from the inside. What I was trying to teach was not getting through-so I thought right, you won't listen to a p.t., would you listen to a R.N.? I have been a vegan raw foodist off and on for about three years. I have always managed to do it in a way that brings me back to cooked food. I think now(hindsight is just wonderful-innit?) that as a p.t. I was just a bit arrogant, I didn't bother going in depth I just followed the guidelines and always fell off the wagon. Well I have completed my first year of my bachelor's, what a humbling experience. For the first time in a while I'm listening to when people speak. And even better I want to hear what they have to say. I have gotten so much inspiration just reading the discussions on your website. So many times I want to join in or ask a question. Hopefully you will give me the opportunity to do that. I go back to school in two weeks for year two and I have been trying to refine my lifestyle so that I have energy, clarity and can maintain a healthy body and mind. 811 is working for me, I just pray I can keep it going.

Hi Noelle, it's great to meet a fruit muncher that lives so close. Yay I'm not alone! I have been learning about raw food for about a year now but searching for the "ultimate human diet" for a long time now especially going through more allergies than you could count and being sick for most of my life I was tired of it but finally feel like a breakthrough is near! After failing a few times (due to lack of information) I finally found some really good and helpful information that made sense and wasn't nearly as complicated as I was originally led to believe. I started off with just one green smoothie a day, then two, got used to that and then started on green juices which I now have for breakfast and lunch every day, and a healthy (usually vegetarian, sometimes raw) evening meal, usually a smoothie or a salad or something cooked but at this stage I'm not too worried about that and don't want to beat myself up for eating something cooked every once in a while but I do limit myself to once a day max, at evening meal only. I'm not too sure if I will go 100% raw yet but am giving everything a go right now so we'll see where it goes! I tried banana island for a week recently and it went "ok" but not great. I could only force myself to eat 8 bananas a day at the start and 12 by the end but I was never hungry (always full actually!) but I didn't feel as good as being on green juices which I have just finished doing 100% for three weeks and felt really good on them. I've now gone back to doing juice for breakfast and lunch and raw/cooked meal at night which I'm happy with for the winter anyway. I actually come from Invers but have been in Cromwell for almost 7 years now, still visit regularly though so maybe we could meet up sometime?! You also must visit in the Summer as the all you can eat stonefruit is to die for!

Sorry for writing you a book lol but I'm just so glad to be meeting someone in a similar position to me!

Take care,

Hi I am an AZ native, born and raised.
I am not 80-10-10 entirely, I am more like 70% raw vegan. but when I eat raw I have more energy and feel better so I have been really pushing to go raw more often, I need to get better with the calorie intake to be able to sustain the lifestyle daily.
honestly my boyfriend is entirely emerged in 80-10-10 and he is my inspiration, without him i never even would have tried going vegan and his raw diet lifestyle got me curious so i HAD to try it out for myself :)

there are a few farmers markets and a wholesale produce place we go to bi weekly, and apparently a really amazing date farm down here! they were the best dates i'd ever tried...melted in your mouth! :)

My grandfather was amazing.  But nobody told me.  I had to figure it out for myself.  When my dad died, my mum was about to pitch everything and I found his diary.  He lived and worked in Hollywood for a while.  I have autographed pictures of Laurel & Hardy who were clients of his among a bunch of other actors that he worked with.  How does your dad not sit you down one day and just mention what a legend granddad was?!!  Dad died of diabetes and with the wealth of natural foods at his doorstep, the rumour is that he and granddad had issues with each other so dad went against the grain and rejected his health.  Anyway, it is what it is.  I'm just stoked that I got my hands on the diary.  I've typed it up and am turning it into a website at the moment.  Oh, and I also grabbed the copywrights to his biggest work - a book called 'Better Health through Common Sense'.

Winter will be hard and I'm glad I'm conversing with other kiwis on 30BaD now.  My husband is supportive but he's not in the right space just yet to start.  I think watching me change will get him psyched though.  The kids, well, it's hard controlling what they eat when you're not with them so the rules are that I will only every buy/prepare vegan food but if they're at a party, it's ok to have some cake.  Stuff like that.  My boy is 8 and my two girls are 4 and 19 mths.  I find myself so much more patient and attentive and finding time that I never thought I had before to just chill with them now that I'm on this program. And it's only been a week!

Good job with your kids.  I guess when they're older, they can understand having incentives to do this.  My son woke up with a stye this morning.  He had a cricket game and trials for the rep team and was worried that his vision would be obscured.  I threw in a few opportunistic comments about 'maybe it's happened because you've had a few too many biscuits from mates at school' which convinced him.  He's going to go back to school on Monday and turn down the offers, he reckons.  I hope.

hahaha.  I love the Shore!!  But then I love most of NZ too.  I'm originally from SA.  My husband was born and bred a Westie (now living on the shore - haha).  Thanks for the friend invite.  PS  I LOVE Waiheke!!  Thought about moving there a while ago and was told that it's a very tight knit community and hard to get into.

I'm still all in.  I cheated big time yesterday and not because of hunger.  I cheated because my emotions ran real rampid.  I saw another list of stuff that I couldn't or shouldn't eat on the 80/10/10 diet.  I got soooo damn mad that I didn't know what to do.  I don't even know why I got mad.  But I did and I ate some chips and dip.  LOL!  What a big cheater I am!  LOL!

The hardest part for me has been eating all of the calories.  But I decided the other day that I wasn't going to worry about whether I ate enough.  I'll eat until my body says full at at least three, if not four or five meals a day and that's it.  

I'm not stuffing myself any longer.  I've been stuffing myself to make sure I get in 2500 calories.  But truthfully when you get that stuffed feeling that is your body telling you to stop eating.  It has as much as it can process right now. 

If I up my activity more then my body will call for more food.  I am upping my activities, but until my body asks for more food.  I may not get 2500 calories everyday.  Not that I will let myself be hungry.  Never.  I'll keep myself very satisfied. 

After reading this post: http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/normal-detox 

I decided that stuffing myself was against my religion.  More Love.

I'm good and green.  Literally.  or maybe I'm more yellow.  I'm loving having all the newbies in my corner too.  It's great to be on this journey with you.  :)

Hi Noelle,

Glad you friended me and are a yoga lover!  I am starting my 30 days tomorrow (Sat here). How does that work for you?  I am studying for my physical trainer cert now.  How is nursing school?  Are you enjoying it?
