I've got exactly one year left of college.
After I graduate, I want to live with other fruit focused vegans. Anything less will not serve.
Creating a strong community will be a process no doubt, but to start one should not be difficult. We only need to agree on a location. I am from the Bay Area and I like the Bay Area, so I'm going to suggest something in the Bay Area. I am also open to other ideas.
All we need to do is rent a house together…Continue
I've heard through the grape vine that some fruit based vegan communities already exist. Does anyone have any information of them they could share? I want to live in one!

Coming up on my last year as a student and starting to think about where I want to live after I graduate.
My number on priority, you guessed it, is FRUIT.
What's the best place for a high carb raw vegan to live in the United States? Arizona? Hawaii?
Also, what about South America?
I'm sure you guys have noticed, if you live in the US conventional bananas are 2/3 the price of organic. I currently by organic, but since after watching DRs videos, I am convinced I need to up my calorie count to 5000 plus. I keep fizzling out because I'm not getting in enough carbs! To up my count, I could go to either grains or conventional bananas. Anyone want to weigh in?
So, I'm planning on doing a 6 week study abroad program in Quito, Ecuador this summer. The program includes 4 days of classes a week, and weekend trips to places like the Amazon.
Naturally, I don't want to stop eating HCRV for any reason, especially when there's tropical fruit around in a tropical climate. So, I had to email the professor about me eating exclusively fruits and vegetables. That's right. I'm not afraid to ask for what I want and neither should you. Check out…Continue
Today I was on Cronometer for the first time and I noticed how low my fat intake has been.
I don't really want to eat nuts and seeds because, well, they don't taste like much to me. In fact, I've only ever liked them when combined with copious amounts of sugar and/or other ingredients.
Are exclusively low fat fruits and vegetable enough? Can my diet be too low in fat?
So I'm considering doing a six week study aboard post session this summer in Quito, Ecuador. Anyone know the scoop on the local fruit? I know they grow bananas in ecuador...
...My host family would get such a kick out of me XD.
I love grapes.
They are sweet, hydrating, and flavorful.
However...since I've been HCRV, I can barely eat them.
Every time I eat even a small amount of grapes (like 50 or more) I get a terrible belly ache.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? How did you "solve" it?
My name's Ben. I'm a student at Willamette University in Salem, OR majoring in economics. I am an ultra marathon runner, an Ashtanga yogi, and a high carb raw vegan.
It would be awesome to connect with other college students who have the courage to take their health into their own hands and defy the status quo. Please add be on 30BAD and/or Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/beeler3.…Continue
Thought I'd create a post to find out where everyone in the US is buying their online. I've started buying dates from California, but it would be awesome to find a place where I could order oranges, grapes, persimmons, and all those other awesome fall fruits.

This year for Christmas, my mother wants to travel to somewhere warm like Hawaii or Mexico. My only requirement, of course, is that I can stuff my face with ripe tropical fruit.
Anyone know of any awesome locations in those areas for fruitarians?

Hi other fruity people,
What's the scoop on coconut oil? I have read that it digests like a carbohydrate rather than a fat. If so, I imagine it could be tasty in cooked meals when/if I find myself in a situation where I have to cook.
