Yesterday I decided to have a thali at The Taste of Lewisham. They're only available until 5pm, so it was a daytime meal. I haven't been treating diet with strict discipline, and I don't intend to, so I didn't argue with myself about it: I fancied it so I had it. The spices got some stuff moving in my chest and I coughed up some…Continue
Just had around 2.5 weeks of having cooked evening meals. Low fat vegetable soups with plenty of roots. I'm really seeing the difference, now, between this and full 811rv. I wanted to go raw again about a week ago but I didn't have enough ripe bananas :( It's the old problem of needing to wait 5 - 6 days for them to ripen. Now my banana collection can sustain me and I'm glad to be back online.
The reason I went to cooked meals this time was a week-long tummy ache. I'm still not…Continue
After 3 and a half weeks 811-ish with 1 cooked meal a day, I'm back with the 100% raw.
This isn't a case of feeling like I should eat raw again, it's more that eating a kilo of potatoes was getting a bit laborious, even in a nice tomato based soup. It's so much easier to eat a kilo of bananas! The transition back to raw felt completely natural.
I've had 3 days raw food now and my energy is back up and I'm feeling great - hopefully this will stay a bit longer this…Continue

After nearly three weeks of high energy good feeling fruitarianism I began to feel drained and weak. I was eating plenty - greater than 5000 kcals most days. My belly hurt after each meal. My water intake was around 2 - 3 litres a day. Sleep? I was getting a good amount of time in bed although getting up 2 or 3 times a night to pee was a little annoying and I wonder if this was contributing to tiredness? My running back from the coffee shop each day became easier and my time for this…Continue
Just ran back from the coffee shop (no, I didn't have coffee!). It's less than 10 minutes run but before I went LFRV running half this distance would have left me panting, heavy limbed and sweating. I cycle a lot, so I'm not unfit but I guess it's the use of different muscles that made running tiresome as it's not something I do a lot.
This little run was easy and comfortable, I wasn't tired and didn't break into a sweat. Immediately I cut right back on nuts and seeds I…Continue

I've been 100% raw for 3 weeks (with one exception - see below).
Before that I was eating a bit of fruit and having soaked oat groats most lunches and often my main meal of the day would be soup where I'd make a source and throw in uncooked veggies into the pot and remove from the heat and let stand for 5 or 10 minutes - minimal cooking.
Then I was at a restaurant, eat as much as you can fit on the plate of delicious veg dishes, and was talking to a friend about raw food. The…Continue
