Hey new banana friends! I was active on this site in 2010 when I first learned about raw veganism, and my how I have changed since then! (Detox symptoms--anyone? Haha Thank goodness that is behind me!)
To be brief, I was recovering from bulimia at that time (which originally began when I was 14/15 in 2008).... and I didn't know what the heck I was doing, only that I didn't feel such disordered feelings when I was eating raw vegan.
Made a few mistakes today. Did not get all my water in, tried to eat another cooked carb. Heart palps all over the place, urinary tract burning, pains, miserable. I just want my digestion to work again. So saddening that these simple things have set me back. Ugh
Okay i saw a video of a girl. Who had like a bunch of different diets and Once of them was durianrider and she was saying he was a guru Which is ridiculous to me because Hes not trying to sell you a damn thing lets be honest i love watching him and freelee they inspire me and other people that their is a way out that you dont have to starve yourself to lose weight. and i truly beilve in them and what they are doing. and than she was going on about how if you get to much of one thing weither…
So about a week ago I decided I was going to do Raw Til' 4 - unintentionally. I just ended up going to the grocery store every morning during my free periods and buying fruit for the day, and eating it until dinner with my host family!
It's come so easy you guys...like I literally have absolutely no cravings. In the grocery store you have to walk through a whole row of candy and bread, and I don't even glance at it! It's so liberating...I eat around 5…
Trying not to obsess about fat gain/muscle loss etc, but having a really tough time.
Weight trained chest and abs. Not much motivation or enthusiasm on this lifestyle yet. Hopefully it will come with time.
Went to Whole Foods and got a whole case of organic grapes for $19. They were having a sale on them...99 cents per lb! I totally wish that could be everyday and wish they had deals like that on all their produce. I… Continue
Going on Banana Island for 8 days...maybe longer if it feels right:) Any tips? I have had some trouble feeling a bit shaky after eating a mono meal of bananas...I come from a history of chrons and Hypoglycemia and sometimes get what seems to be a spike in blood sugar from the bananas that can occasionally turn into stomach cramps...anyone relate?? Should I incorporate celery or a veggie into my banana island? Thanks!!
Feeling fat and flabby all the time. I've gained about an itch of fat around my stomach, thighs, and basically just my entire body. I don't like it at all and don't understand why this has happened. My body used to be rock solid and now it's pathetic.
Ate last bit of grape tomatoes since I didn't want them to be wasted. They are so yummy. I wish they didn't cause my leaky gut to act up.
has anyone healed thyroid cysts with diet? I have a close friend who has been diagnosed with them as well as being pre-diabetic and hormonal issues as well/ it would be nice for her to read some testiomonials of real people that have overcome some of these health issues.
Trying to eat my salad this evening and I realise I'm totally bored with lettuce. I have beautiful romaine organic lettuce, with papaya, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Now looking down at my salad, having eaten all the tasty bits out of it, and there is this tons of lettuce left. I need some inspiration to make things more exciting, I think I have tired most of the fruity dressings recipies. but I'm craving savoury, salty and garlicky and dare I say it, olive oil!
Any suggestions? Thanks… Continue
It's sad we live in a GMO world. I'm eating some most likely gmo rice cakes. it does not say non-gmo and it has soy as an ingredient. I meant to go pick some strawberries and cherries at like 8 o clock this morning but I just feel so out of it. Someone stuck my bananas in the fridge and I hate when they get refrigerated. I find them best room temperature or frozen. i suppose i could just put them in the blender if i need my glucose fix. i woke up so dehydrated today. I just feel like…
I just recently discovered that I like salads without dressing! This makes me so happy! I have only found 1 or 2 raw vegan dressings that I actually liked, and of course they always had to be blended up, so that meant cleaning the blender afterwards (not a big deal, but still an extra step). So the last few days I have eaten my salad without any dressing. Just lots of cherry tomatoes, cucumber and shredded carrots. And I've discovered that I like salad better that way! :) Tonight's…
Lips and acne still at it lol. Lips a little bit more itchy than usual, but not oozing yellow or anything. They are red though and chapped/peeling still. Acne red and still have the cystic going on as well, but not much of anything new.
