3 weeks high carb, low fat (not quite raw til 4 yet though). Haven't lost weight/fat but considering the huge amounts of food I've been eating I'm amazed I haven't gained any! Great way of eating to maintain weight¬ put it on. Still worried my body fat will stay at 41% but starting to trust in carbs :)
A few surveys just to pass a few minutes and share a little more about myself.
A. What are your favourite smells?
I like the smell of lilac, gardenia, "candy" smells, and oddly enough chlorine pools and sunscreen.
B. Can you go a whole day without caffeine?
Pretty easily. I've had a few slip-ups after being 6 months free from it but I'm trying to keep it down again and stay away from sodas.
C. Who knows more about you than anyone…Continue
Hey everyone, I don't know about you, but often times when someone learns that I am vegan, they usually think that this lifestyle is expensive. Do you find that it is??
I decided to do a video as to why i don't think it is, but if i missed something i would love your input!
thanks so much and take care!
I was feeling my best, finally eating all I wanted, and I was just so happy about life. i switched to raw till 4 in march when i was 12, now I'm 13. I was so happy I could eat so much and I loved life and was always trying to spread my happiness. but yesterday everything went haywire. I dont know whats wrong and i dont know how to fix it and I'm eating all the same stuff i had been before. but everything I believed in is gone and no one I know can help me. no one I know understands me right…Continue
believe that my mind is weak and that's why i keep falling into eating processed humussss....
I refuse to believe that i can't control my craving for that EVIL THING.
that's the only thing i can't control....i don't buy it myself, but it's in the house and its like crack.
For past 3 days i've been trying to kick my butt back onto the road of RAW food... but kept falling into eating cooked dinners... i know its no big deal but i sincerely want to be back eating raw…Continue

Ive been super hungry during the night and I just found myself eating a ton of rice at 11! is it okay to do this and what are the effects of doing this?
I am about to start searching the discussions for others who started out having a hard time getting enough food in them without being hungry again in half an hour. I cannot seem to get enough calories in a meal and find myself grazing all day long instead. I use to snack fairly regularly, but it is nothing like this. I am constantly eating! As soon as I'm filled to capacity and have to stop I do, but then I'm hungry very very quickly. I just can't get enough calories to be satiated.…Continue
My 2nd day 811. Yesterday I ate some greens and fruit and my stomach got all gurgly and rumbling.
Is it okay to eat cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds at the same time as greens?
Been a while.....since i posted. Hectic lifee)

I also have developed a really bad PICKING HABBIT of my acne….and they are not like tiny pimples.. they are painful ones you can’t squeeze out…. So I keep…Continue
Well, I didn't make my goal of caloric intake again today. I felt like I ate so much, my stomach was hurting from being too full. It's so difficult coming from my background of an ED and restricting way below 1000 calories to trying to make a goal of 3000 calories a day. I got some advice today (which I really appreciate) that I should eat 3 big mangoes a day and that should help. I don't have any here in my house, but will try to go shopping sometime tomorrow to get some mangoes and…Continue
It's like having a mini garden in your kitchen all year long!
A seed (or grain or legume) has many nutritional advantages to you, but many of them are locked up tight by anti-nutrients (such as phytic acid). Germinating the seed or legume causes it to go from being dormant to being a live plant!…Continue
Today is Day 448. Wanted to blog a few of my updates. The two pound I thought I lost was just a timing issue. I am still at the same weight I was a week ago. Still bloating like crazy! I have been experiencing lots of energy over the past week. I still have times I feel completely lethargic, but have been feeling an overall increase of energy. The energy is affecting my ability to fall asleep right away, but I am going to allow my body time to adjust to this new level of energy. …Continue
I hit 1657 calories today. I did not reach my goal of the very least of 2000 calories. I cannot even imagine how to reach 3000 calories. What do you eat to reach that many calories. I really need to see some results as far as some energy. I am not feeling very well today, my face is breaking out, and I didn't know if this could be attributed to detoxing from the LFRV lifestyle. I realize it is going to take some time to see results especially given my past of eating disorder of…Continue
