As stated in the title, I am new to this lifestyle. I have been a vegetarian for a year now, and looking to move up to the next level. I eat all organic and non GMO. some of my questions are....:
Why not an emphasis on vegetables?
Vegetables are rich in all sorts of nutrients, and have such a wide array of colors. I know that other 80/10/10's promote veggies heavily. So far from watching the videos, which are incredibly inspirational, I have only gotten…Continue
I just recently came to the HCRV lifestyle and I'm in love with it already! I feel so good all the time, it's even affected my mood and my happiness! The only problem is, I eat 3 bananas and I'm full already. That sucks. Because I see an entire bushel of bananas and I want to gobble them all up! but today I FELT full after only three. I'm scared if I'm not getting enough calories in my diet every day that I will GAIN wait and lose all of my lean muscle mass. :( I need some serious advice.…Continue

Is it necessary to space meals 4-5 hours apart on this lifestyle as I have read on other raw vegan sites to help avoid triggering cortisol production? Or does this work itself out over time as the body adapts?
I will be starting this lifestyle in four days! I have started a chronometer account, have a water filter, have a juicer, have a blender, and will visit the wholesale department of my local farmer's market on Saturday. I plan to have the following each day:
32 oz water with lemon first thing
32oz-64oz fresh juice for breakfast
Large fruit mono-meal for lunch
Small fruit meal and salad with 1-2lb greens and 2tbsp fat (nuts, seeds, avocado, coconut,…Continue

Live and learn but I have to say my morning smoothie sucked.
I have had grape and a banana smoothies before and they are great! Sure the grape skins do make the texture a bit weird but I like it.
Well, am stil learning and finding ripe fruit at the store has been tough and have not figured out how to buy cases of fruit and how to ripen in stages etc. I will figure this out!
I had bought some grapes and they looked fine - had some bananas and only three were near…Continue

I have been eating fruit during the day and then having a cooked meal in the evening. I'm still struggling to get in enough calories from fruit.
As much as possible I'm trying to source the fruit from local growers and I've found a guy who can supply me with fresh organic bananas for most of the year. Apart from him I'm struggling a bit to get the calories in. I've been getting watermelons and oranges and they are fantastic, but they're not exactly convenient to transport…Continue

This is my 4th day I have been attempting to follow the lifestyle. I am still learning about it so I am easy on myself if I mess up. But I can already feel so many differences! My face is still breaking out some...but I know it will get better soon. The water techniques are so strange to me. I am used to drink water all the time along with whatever I am eating, not spacing it out in between. But it makes sense!!

I love youtube a lot. It is, pretty much, my #1 favorite website (don't worry 30BAD, you are my #2 ;D). I don't watch television at all or very rarely, youtube is much better entertainment (plus i don't have to wait through bulls*** commercials, that promote lifestyle that I despise and ads for meds to deal with consiquenses of that lifestyle, every 5 minutes)
Recently I have watched a few videos by a channel named "VeganAtheist". I've stumbled upon it several times in the past, but…Continue
