My Response to Durian Rider and his post about being harsh

You are my husband Michael (only in Australia) lol. Anyway, I used to think you were a bit of an ass when you would put the other "so called gurus" down. also thought my husband Michael was harsh. But you are 100% right! Enough of this liberal crap and take it all on. The only way to heal thyself is to go 100% raw low fat vegan. period.

I fully understand that now as I have been on the road all too long with yo yoing and not getting healed. I may need a sponsor once in a while as I fully… Continue

Satisfying the cranky child inside…

I've had 3 days of eating high raw, and I've developed some animosity toward bananas right now. But I know they love me so I'm trying to enjoy the times I am spending with them despite my angst toward their being so healthy for me. Sometimes a bar of chocolate, or some fried tofu just sounds SO good that it's hard to get my attachment-oriented, addicted mind away from the concept that nothing but chocolate or fried tofu will satisfy it.



There's a small child inside me who has a… Continue

Dates! (Day 25 & 26)

Day 25 & 26



Day 25: Tues, 12/29.

2.5-3 quarts water.



Br. banana smoothie



L. banana pear celery smoothie



Snack/early dinner: dates and almond butter: not a great combo but it was a raw treat and I didn't eat the tortillas I was making for the family! Woohoo! That was one of my favorite cooked items but I resisted it. So not worth it.



Dinner: celery, cukes, grape toms (not really hungry



Day 26: Wed,… Continue

well..

I'm still with it, guys! I know I haven't been on here. I just wanted to be alone for a while.

I am still sick, though much better.



I'm on my way back home to San Francisco from a torturous stay in Las Vegas.



I'm scared that I don't have enough money to live how I'd like. This month feels like it's either going to be rent or bananas I'm buying, and I'll have to ninja whatever doesn't get chosen, since one or the other isn't really an option until February when my… Continue

Channeling Constructively all this Anxious Energy

It felt like I had this huge mountain to overcome today, and that was in the area of my anxiety...



I did not know how I was going to get over that. It just felt more enormous than I was. I had to deal with it though, right? Can't avoid going through everything in life... one of my friends sort of coached me through, letting me know I would have to deal with this in life sometime and pointing out that I was focused on the small things and not on the big picture. So right was my… Continue

Phoenix Rising!

The following serves as a combination cathartic coming-clean, a consequences travelogue, and most importantly, a commitment to the future.



I recently returned from a long-planned Christmas week with extended family. I was fairly certain that I would take this opportunity to indulge in whatever (vegan if at all possible) munchies for which I cared. This was not out of the blue for me. Back in October I had engaged in a similar chowfest, with some unpleasant, but not terrible results.… Continue

addictions creeping in

It's been three months tomorrow since I found this website and went 80 10 10 cold turkey. First month was no overt fats and very strict 811. Second month I started adding in some overt fats at the end of the day. Last two weeks I've had some days of too much overt fat - like a whole avocado and some sunflower seeds. Last week I was really craving something warm and "nourishing." So I made a mineral broth with all kinds of veggies and potatoes - supposed to just drink the broth, but I ate some… Continue

I feel terrible today- yesterday I messed up and ate cooked foods. It all started when I was doing some research about my hormone imbalance issues on the internet- I must have read information for about 3 hours and was so sick of reading. Everything they said was different, your body needs dairy, your body needs organic meats, I even read that the raw diet causes the hormones to be more out of whack, which I do not believe to be true at all. Anyway, my health this year has really been going… Continue

Last raw gourmet meal... ever.

Today I had my last raw gourmet meal. I had planned to make this meal with my mother (who I am visiting for a week) for my extended family months ago. I wish I hadn't committed to it, but at the time I felt that I could still eat occasional gourmet meals. I also rationalized that I could help my mom eat more raw (albeit high fat, but better than SAD?) food and expose others to raw food. I thought that if I just served some bananas and romaine no one would even be interested in raw at all. But… Continue

Swollen tounge down, rest of body to go!

Hello everyone! So I have been 100 percent 80/10/10 for about four days now, and so far so good! I really feel like once you make up your mind that you are going to do somthing, that there are really no other options, then it is actually relativly easy to do whatever you want to do. I think it is the making up of the mind part that is the hardest. But alas, my mind is made! I am sitting at around 120 pounds these days, def not my heaviest, but still not comfortable for me. I am around 5'4, and… Continue

10th Day No Coffee & 20th Day Raw

I've been doing great eating raw- eatings lots of fruits, greens, not really any nuts- I've had a few avocados but a small amount at a time in my salad. I haven't weighed in SO long it seems, but I feel like my body is getting slimmer! I'm glad I guit the coffee because it seems now that I'm a lot calmer and maybe even less moody. I had a great Christmas and my hubby bought me 4 Raw food cookbooks, 3 big bags of organic Teecino & some organic Raw agave. My Inlaws bought me the Doug Graham… Continue

My experience with emotional eating

So, I want to confess that when I went off of Banana isle I was reluctant b/c I was really liking that I had made a commitment and I was on a roll. When my bananas were not ripe, I had a choice, I could go hungry and be so irritated or I could break it for one night with another fruit. Well, I chose the latter. I started to get more drawn to higher water content foods. So I thought the next day I would devote myself to see where I would lean towards. As gave into the watery fruits(I really… Continue

Day 22 (12/26/09)

40 min kbell today! Then date/banana/persimmon pie for breakfast! My dh really liked the pie too.



Like I said in my fitness post today, I'm pumped that I didn't get sucked in by cooked food yesterday (Christmas day dinner). I loved waking up today with no regret or feeling yucky.



Big Banana spinach smoothie for lunch and



dinner was kiwi and clemintines/tangerines and then salad with greens, tomatoes, cukes, and dressing was oranges and raw homemade almond… Continue

Re-working my diet

Hi. I've been on 811 since May. I am starting to feel that a fruit based diet is not working for me - at least at this time. I am mostly recovered or on my way to full recovery from a serious illness, mostly neurological. My energy level is fairly good, and I am active but not as active as I would like. My current symptoms include seizures, gastroparesis (which is currently fairly active), hypothyroid currently with adrenal conditions in the past, multiple food and chemical allergies, and a… Continue

Thank God for LFRV

I am so glad I found this site, and that I found 8-1-1 . I was searching earlier this year for a solution to my wifes illnesses, and I googled "thyroid" and "diet" . That sent me to several regular raw sites, many people had had success with raw food. From there I investigated for myself and was drawn into Doug Grahams logic from some interviews I found. The biggest draw for me is that not allowing for more than 10% calories from fat matched what I believed to be true (McDougall,Pritiken and… Continue

Jumped off Banana Isle for now

I decided to jump into the waters surrounding Banana Isle b/c my bananas were not ripe and it was Xmas yesterday and my super market was closed. Anyway, I ate celery and then later on grapes...later than that I had coconut water (2 to be exact!)

It is funny, weight wise I was starting to lose some weight and b/c of the other fruits I actually put on a bit(not much) but that is so weird.

I am not sure if I will go back onto the banana isle right away, I think I will stay here and… Continue
