My story (Lame title, I know)

Six years ago I became a vegetarian. I don't know why it just felt right and it still does. I always had problems with my weight, I nearly tried everything (weight watchers, atkins, exercise, fat camp, a fast, eating only soup made of cabbage...). But after I "reached" my highest weight ever (189lbs if your interested) I knew I had to change my diet completely.

After mocking the lifestyle during cheese pizza binges with my friends I began to read about veganism and it all made sense: The… Continue

Day 19

I feel so huge and bloated and I haven't even eaten any salt today. Am I gaining weight? I know I'm not supposed to care about this if I feel good, but I feel exactly the same as I did before. I guess I'll find out when I weigh in on saturday. Maybe I will never lose it. I think i'm just frustrated.

What is my MIND telling me? .... and how is it WRONG?



I have been thinking, many time on this site we focus on the question .."what is my body trying to tell me?" this is all very well and can help a lot but i think a better question to ask sometimes is "what i smy mind telling me?" and then "how is that wrong?"



i belive any challenge or problem i have is a result of my thinking, and i try to apply this in all areas of my life. sometimes it is diffult because my… Continue

Day 134, 100% Raw Fruitarian

Tuesday, Day 134, 100% Raw Fruitarian. A small development in my fruitarian regiment. Today, i wasn't in the mood for any sauce on my non-sweet fruity salad. It was so good i had two large bowls of it. i did add the seasonings to the salad, but i can see the time coming where i won't want that either. Growing in grace is a wonderful thing indeed. i intended to workout today, but i got home so late (about 10:30pm), that i decided to workout the next morning. i ate well today, had another box of… Continue

Ahhhhwww man.

Well for the last few days I have not been doing so good. Generally, fruit by day, cooked by night and I did it again tonight. Kind of a bummer.

At least I lifted heavy weights for a half hour......I am very tired and sore.....so I have that to make myself feel ok.

I am going to try to get it all raw tommoro. I was so close today.

Day 25

I've got similar physical stuff coming up today (a few days after eating something cooked) that was coming up for me a few days into this 811 journey about 4 weeks ago. I have got cracks in the side of my mouth as well as the skin on my hands is feeling really dry; pain just below the rib cage; and pains in my chest when I take a deep breath. All of these symptoms disappeared after a day or two a few weeks ago so I am hoping the same will happen this time.

Last Day in Chanthaburi

It's 15:18 (gotta get used to the 24 hour clock, which I kinda like). Today I went to the Nom Tuk Phiu national park and the Pui waterfalls. It was a good time. I got a ride there from town center. As I was about to go it was looking like dark clouds rolling in, but I braved it anyway, as I had gone to bed excited about it and already pretty much had my mind made up.



It started downpouring about 5 mins before they dropped me at the park gates lol. Awesome that it only lasted about 15… Continue

Weekend Review of Days 131 & 132, 100% Raw Fruitarian

Weekend Review Days 131 & 132, 100% Raw Fruitarian. Had a nice weekend. The weather was warm and the sky was clear all weekend. Saturday we went to a campmeeting and met up with some present truth believers who were interested in starting a home church network. The fellowship was good. Being that all the participants were vegan, there seemed to be keen interest in my fruitarian lifestyle. It was good to speak to people who, though not raw, are definitely raw-interested and want to learn. i… Continue

first few days in thailand

all's going great.. been hanging in chanthaburi the first 2 days thus far.. first day i spent finding my way in, and out, of bangkok.. that place is chaotic and i knew i wanted to be out of there ASAP.. the bus ride to chanthaburi was a bit painful, as i had fasted for almost my entire trip here (about 24 hours) and not eaten much once off the plane, and all we kept passing were mounds and mounds of durian and jackfruit, trucks full of pineapple, and all kinds of other fruit stands… Continue

Day 16

Feeling well. Ate 2 pears. My bananas and mangoes are still not ripe. I really need to go to the produce store. I am getting head rushes whenever I stand up, am I not eating enough? Last night I went out with some friends (which I haven't done for a few weeks since I've been so busy). 80% of them were drinking but of course I didn't. And guess what? I still had fun! I am so excited to be able to send the message out to people that you don't need stimulants to have fun.



Update: I went… Continue
