That's right. I am going to try and complete just one day of hcrv.
I can't believe I have not given up at this point, but I know how different my life could be if I could just get this right.
One day....starts tomorrow. ;P

My new plan? Stuff myself silly with bananas. Five is my max in one sitting but I am hungry shortly after so my solution is more bananas. I have been trying for A YEAR to transition so this is just another attempt....but hopefully it is a successful one.

Starts tomorrow. I even took before pictures. I hope to go for 30 days, and if I want to I will continue until I feel that I have enough space between myself and cooked food. I am so tired of waiting for 80 10 10 to just happen for me, so I am going to try my best to make it happen for myself.

No matter what I do, come dinner time I am hungry enough to kill something cute and furry and eat it with my bare hands..............and I am vegan. I do not know how to get over this. I had 20 bananas before dinner, 2 cups strawberries, 8 kiwis and when it was dinner time the thought of more sweet fruit made me want to have a seizure. I don't even call it cravings....I call it hunger...I feel hungry. For dinner I had some fake meat crap and salt, salt, salt. I know all I do is come here and… Continue

I have been using my difficulty digesting fruit as a reason to eat shiat for way to long. I genuinely have a difficult time with all sorts of unpleasant bowel issues when I eat fruit and it leads me to avoid it when I have to work. I cant really stop CPR or leave someone on the toilet to run to the pot myself. So after watching the Clent Manich video I have decided to sub my first two meals of the day with smoothies. I digest them effortlessly. I eat them and then cant feel anything. I eat a… Continue

I dont want to say anything, I don't want to jinx anything.
So I will just say, I am still eating bananas...and a small amount of other fruit.
Very surreal to say the least.

I have had bananas for 3 days and lost 10 lbs. What the hell?
Day before yesterday I had 5566 calories. How is this happening?
I am not hungry. I am eating constantly. It is the most amazing, gluttonous feeling evAr.
Eat and eat and eat and eat.
And when I get tired of eating.....I eat more.
This might be the best kept secret in human history.

I fought like hell to save a woman two nights ago. I am still sore. Had to throw her on the floor from a chair and do compressions until I was soaked in sweat. She passed there, naked on the floor while we yelled and fought and compressed and medicated her dead heart.
She was obese, a smoker, a diabetic and had coronary artery disease. She was also a red head, just like me.
Funny the people who change our lives. Sad that I cant thank her.
I have two days full… Continue

I want to make a quick post about my starting point as of right now just for my own personal record. I hope this blog will show my progression to 811 and I dont want to forget exactly where I started so I can see the improvements raw by itself brings.
Female 27, 5'3 (160cm)
195.6lbs, 88.5kg (obese, but thirty pounds lighter than my highest weight)
Insulin resistant pre diabetic
1/2 to a 1 pack a day smoker
VERY high and difficult… Continue

I am fucking doing this. I don't care if it takes me months or years to get it right, I am doing it.
I am giving up the primal shit. I feel miserable and my gut is a mess. My gut is a mess on 811 too but I have never made it past about 8 hours. I have ripe bananas waiting for me. I do not care anymore if I fail, if I eat cooked food or (gasp) non vegan food. I will be 811 someday, and I will not stop trying.
The decision is final.
ETA- SO SO SO many of you have… Continue

I posted and it was removed. I am sure it is not long before I am banned. I tried being LFRV and I failed.
SOME PEOPLE CANNOT DO THIS
I dont know how to explain it to you...I wish I had loved this like you all do. I wish I could be lfrv more than anything else in the world but I cant....I cannot stick to it. I wish you all well. You are all beautiful, compassionate people.

I am so frustrated with myself I cant focus. What is my problem? I feel devastated that I cannot follow this. I want this more than pretty much anything else I have ever wanted. I get sick of fruit and I get hungry for anything else....I swear, if the only cooked food left in the world was buried under a pile of dead cats and toilet water I would dig to get to it. I. Am. Tired. Of. It. I dont know what to do.

I have no idea why but I keep failing. Every day I get to the point where 1. I cant leave the bathroom and 2. I cant stomach the idea of another piece of fruit but I can eat a huge cooked vegan meal.
For right now until my digestion improves I am going to eat fruit for breakfast, lunch and right before dinner then eat a cooked vegan dinner. At least that way I can adjust to the digestion aspect. I don't know how long I will do this.
I am so… Continue

At first I was hesitant to do a mono fruit fast. I read freelee's post about it and I wanted to wait until I was 100% dedicated to lfrv-ism before I started but I have changed my mind. I am having a terrible time digesting fruit. I think bananas for 10 days will be a great way for me to break through that barrier I am creating for myself. I know I do not get sick on bananas. I start....well, now it is Jan 1st in 21 minutes. I have never been one for new years resolutions but I have always loved… Continue

For the past couple of years I have fought long and hard to join the ranks of "nutritarians" with only failure to show for it. Dr. Fuhrman was the ultimate, the guru in my eyes. After finding 30bad I often returned to his website to read his thoughts about raw food...but now I am officially done. I found this post, written on his blog,… Continue

Nothing is digesting well. I am a little nervous about what to eat because I do not have the kind of job that allows for many bathroom breaks. I will spare you the details but food is in and out very quickly. I have a terrible cough and overnight my skin has turned into a mess.
I read an article by Dr. Fuhrman about why raw diets and high fruit diets are horrible for your health. He says his raw food patients have hair loss, dental issues and massive vitamin… Continue

I have my fruit nice and ripe in my kitchen. I have been eating one or two fruit meals a day to prepare. I have everything ready to bring my fruit meals to work with me.....now all of a sudden the doubt creeps in. The voice that tells me that this is extreme, that I should just be a vegan and call it good. That I will fail, feel miserable, piss off my family and friends and not lose weight. I keep thinking that somehow I will be the exception and I wont receive the benefits from 811. Why does… Continue
