30 Bananas a Day!

All these "omg calories" "omg weight gain" "omg hypothetical situations" discussions are HORRIBLE. just horrible.

I went HCRV because I truly believed that it would heal my body from the damage I did to it, and the damage that the early years of eating SAD and not being all too active did.  I believe that HCRV is not only the healthiest way for people to live, but that it is the kindest to the planet.  I understand the fear of gaining weight, but this is supposed to be a forum that promotes HEALTH of body, mind, and spirit- not pleasing aesthetics.  I take it personally when people say this is a "diet that isn't working" because they're misunderstanding completely what it is.  It's a lifestyle based on compassion and awareness, from which you will happen to reap countless benefits- It is not just a band-aid for your belly.

One of the things that attracted me to 30BAD was the LACK of people complaining about every little dip and curve, every 2lb/1kg difference in their weight, etc.  I find it alienating when every discussion is someone freaking out over a MINOR weight gain, or asking a hypothetical question for the sake of proving a moot point.  It's juvenile.  I know I haven't been a member long, but in the short time I have been here it seems like the site has been overrun by fad-dieters and people who understand NOTHING about nutrition, and aren't willing to listen to those with years of solid experience.  Jeepers.  I would really like to see more worthwhile discussions from the centered&balanced members of 30BAD.  I will start one myself later.  Cheers, truly fruity people!

Thanks so much, means a lot to me coming from a PK ;)

Also I was JUST watching The Matrix the other day... coincidence?  I think not!

The reason for being dismayed at all the weight-gain posts is because they are not gaining FAT, they are gaining temporary WATER WEIGHT, and if they read through the welcome tour/previous discussions by other members as you are told to do upon joining 30BaD, their questions would have already been answered.  it's all the making mountains out of molehills that gets tiresome after seeing it for the 50th time.

@jon- sorry if i came across as saying that the PK's aren't doing their jobs!  i have seen them respond very thoroughly in numerous forums and definitely appreciate that.  i was more asking, why aren't other members reading and following the rules?? 

it's good to question things- that's why you should always do your research!

A lot of people are NEW to this and still learning and I think that people should be more understanding and less judgmental of that fact, its common and normal for people to have those concerns when starting this, its a place to learn though so I don't understand why people complain about OTHER peoples fears/ concerns/ misunderstandings...its is a SUPPORT forum after all.

Don't forget that a lot of these people have disordered eating backgrounds, it shouldn't offend you personally.

*forum topic, rather

perhaps harley and freelea should start a new thread/topic (whatever it is) called "OMG I just started 811 and I'm gaining weight!!!" or something like that, so that newbies can go there to ask about their (legitimately frightening seeming) weight gain issues, and get advice/responses from more "advanced" 811ers who actually want to help them out. then the people who don't want to see those discussions don't have to, and the new people get their concerns addressed with out being screamed at :P it's a win win!!! 

so harely/freelea... new thread: "OMG I just started 811 and I'm GAINING WEIGHT!!!"

And AJ you are totally understood! Cheers, no one thinks you're a "b*tch" and if they do, they have simply misunderstood you and your point.

Comment by Dreamer on April 19, 2012 at 5:16am

yeah it's odd... and potentially harmful for other members seeing that kind of restrictive stuff

Comment by Rayla Sun Gazer on April 19, 2012 at 5:13am

maybe there are too many members now to "police" the site??

Comment by Rayla Sun Gazer on April 19, 2012 at 5:12am

RIGHT AJ !!! I had someone HERE tell me that I should not expect to lose any weight eating 2500-3000 calories a day. WTF? LOL

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
