I sold my car last week and bought a new bike. I've been cycling around town, carbing the f up, and doing what I love daily. But I feel different too. I feel as though everything that I've learned, that I'm used to, that I'm comfortable with, is slowly fading away. Everything that I'm taught ever since I was small seems distant, everything that my parents say or what my family say seems like gibberish and somehow what I learn in school and acting classes made me realize that life is just one…Continue

Among the hundreds of Nazi, Hitler, and JFK documentaries, there are documentaries I have favored and hope that others watch the material to gain insight, information, and a new found empathy and understanding for all people, animals, the planet, and ourselves. Of course there are so many more documentaries I enjoyed and see value, and I condensed a list below of the best documentaries to watch on Netflix that are currently uploaded, and a small list of the…Continue
How To Love Your Body Part Four: What Does Personal Care FEEL Like?
Now that you have a richer understanding of why you feel the way you feel in your body, a deeper connection to your true emotions, and are starting to see that it is not your body's job to give you your sense of value and worth, it is time to focus on learning how to nourish yourself from the inside out.
We all know that we can easily go…Continue

Observation: Raw vs Cooked vs Combined
Experimenting with raw vs cooked. It's time to reflect .
On raw, I feel like the emblem of health. Feeling clean, and not weighed down, it's only instinct to want to share this energy with others. But somewhere down the road after consecutive raw days, I find myself searching for a different base.
With brings me to...

I am back to 95% raw as of 3 days ago. I have been doing a lot of research on grains in a vegan diet. For those of us with compromised guts, the grains can be the cause of increased endotoxin regardless of the quality. I know many successful vegans can eat cooked/grains/beans, etc., but for some of us, it may be too much toxin to handle. Even though I have been at this going on 3 years, I am a bit older than many people coming to 30bad, so I think I need to do more healing on a raw diet.…Continue
I just recently started RT4, and have problems after breakfast. Usually I have 1liter of green smoothie, with 5-6 bananas,dates,some green and some other fruit(depends what I have mature at home). This smoothie is usually about 7-800kcl.I drink it slowly in an hour.Not forcing it at all. But after I had the half of it, my stomach starts to hurt. Is not like a "oh I'm full" feeling, but a very uncomfortable ,sickening one.Then I have to take some break .Sometimes I even feel dizzy.
Do you really have to feel badly about yourself when you gain weight?
Do you have to hate your body when it swells or is puffy?
Do you need to have your stomach flip over when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror?
Is it actually super important that you are acutely aware at all times of how you look, so that you can determine how you feel?
It is time to get to really get into…Continue

Hi everyone....I know most of you guys here are way younger than me,so this is for your folks. Recently published in London by the Vegan Lifestyle Association:
Thanks for all the inspiration here @ 30bananasaday.
Hi friends :)
In my last video I suggested that in order to come to a place where you have a healthy relationship with food and with your body, that you remove all 'good' and 'bad' thinking and labels from your food choices.
Now, I knew this was going to spark questions about specific dietary choices and preferences - like eating vegan or 80/10/10 or following any other kind of protocol with food.
The most common question I get when I make this suggestion to remove the…Continue

This is a blog post for my future reference. I hit my highest weight ever in my entire life. Even after having two children, I never weighed as much as I do today. I hit an even 180 pounds. Full pregnancy, I only ever weighed 177ish.
Today is the first day of my attempt at using an indoor bike trainer to lose weight without the impact on my knees. I used to be a long-distance runner and can no longer run due to my excessive weight.
I did eat mostly raw…Continue

5 years into this diet eating 3000+ calories of high carb foods a day and I'm really packing on the pounds. Especially now that I'm working a full time desk job I can't find the time to exercise the 6 hours a day needed to burn off all those carbs. I mean, I don't know if my v lines could get any…Continue

How To Love Your Body: Part Two, Food
In my last video, I shared with you my first tool for getting you to a place where you can genuinely say you love your body.
That tool was a challenge to stop scapegoating your emotions and feelings onto your body, by no longer allowing yourself to speak negatively about your body.
Today, I want to give you my second tool for leaning…Continue

I have talked A LOT about body love in my videos, instagram posts, Facebook posts, and with the people I work with on a daily basis.
This idea of learning to love your body right here, right now, may sound really good, may sound like it would feel good and all that - but I know that if you are not in a place where you love your body right now, it is most likely because you still have a nagging belief that your body must change before you can…Continue
