I woke up this morning clutching my water bottle.
Not sure if I was trying to drink while sleeping, or aware that I was feeling dehydrated or what...
but I love these silly reminders not to take myself too seriously!
This is a question for any fruit fanatics living in southern Ontario. Where is the best place to get my hands on high quality organic produce? I've been doing the regular stores (Metro, Longos, Loblows) as well as the speciality stores (Whole Foods, Organic Garage) but I know I could do it even cheaper. I would estimate my current weekly food budget to be around $120 to $150 a week. A Majority of that budget is spent on Bananas. Right now I buy organic bananas by…Continue
Other than an energy boost what else should I be experiencing within the first month of HCRV LIFESTYLE? :$

Hello beautiful people!
I'm new to the site, but have know about it for awhile now. I'm happy to be here finally.
I hope you all will check out my page.
In 2006 I was in a motocross accident that left me paralyzed from the shoulders down. My family and I have been trying every treatment that we can for me to at least regain enough movement in my arms to have independence. I've been to Germany for adult stem-cell treatment, acupuncture, different types of…Continue

This has been going on for over a year, everytime I fall off the raw wagon and have UNSALTED starches I gain 5-10 pounds. It's getting worse and worse and it's not going away. It's making really physically uncomfortable, especially in the face. I feel the discomfort all the time. Would it be ok to take a diuretic? Would it make me lose the extra fluid? I know that the fluid is not exactly the problem but the toxins in my body that caused it but it's really making me uncomfortable...
Hi, fruit people, I admire you pioneering people. Well I've stumbled quite alot and come to a compromise whereby I'm having fruit for breakfast now.
I think was you start eating non-raw it's harder to want to eat fruit, although banana are good to get to bed at night. The bevilly hills diet is like that, fruit in the morning and if you eat protein, no more fruit is allowed.

I have written a blog post all about connecting with your body, including some tools to help you do it!
Lots of love to you.
So excited! I had a very successful digestive day! I know it sounds silly but I was experiencing a bit of nausea and indigestion this week. But after reviewing some of Freelee and Durianrider's videos, I incorporated more water and monomeals and my symptoms went away! So excited :) hope this helps anyone who had similar symptoms!
I guess I just wanted to do a little intro. Basically, 3 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus. In that time I was given loads of meds, including those buggers, catabolic corticosteroids. Coz of those things I went from a fairly healthy 64kg, to 90kg, from all of the water retention, and the swelling (edema) caused by the lupus :(
Last May I stumbled onto this lifestyle, and I knew it was the answer! After doing all of this research, I realise…Continue
As some of you may be aware, I have had my rollercoaster ride when it comes to food, especially while being vegan. I had suffered for a year and half with a progressed candida overgrowth which lead to many other related health issues including leaky gut syndrome. While I tried to do EVERYTHING to get rid of it, nothing seemed to work. There is a reason why I don`t…Continue

My second week was a HUGE success! I don't have cravings or temptations, and my classmates are super curious to see what I'm bringing every day. I got ambushed for my berries yesterday and everyone was curious about my homemade almond milk. I've got boatloads of energy, I'm flying off the roof and in 2 weeks I've lost 7 lbs eating A LOT! I don't even have a little zit and my body feels, for lack of better words, clean. I've also decided to celebrate Friday and Mangos by combining the two…Continue
I just began my raw journey this week and I was thinking about how it will effect my body? I have already noticed clearer skin and better digestion which is wonderful! But then I began to think about what it will do to my thyroid levels and if I will need to decrease/increase my medication levels(I have been taking medication for it everyday since I was a baby).
Over the summer I started eating a lot more fruits and veggies and I tried to take out all gluten from my diet because I…Continue
Okay, so I am making the effort to start a youtube channel to spread the message of a high carb vegan lifestyle.
I have been vegan for about 4 years (vegetarian for 4 years prior), and I absolutely love this lifestyle, I couldn't feel any better! I want to be an inspiration to others, and to show them how wonderful this lifestyle can be! So if you have any advice, please share as I want this message to be heard and to spread.
Thank you everyone for your…Continue
