30 Bananas a Day!

Its amazing what the 811 lifestyle does to the body. Im new, i´ve only been doing this since november 17th last year. 
I was sick, for 3 months, it turned out it was from fungus under the floor of my old place .. i moved out and got better, but i never turned back from raw vegan.

Before i got into raw i was a meat eater, i was training for fitness and ate a lot of chicken, i also ate beans for protein, lots of dairy products for protein, canned tuna and eggs.
I was under the impression that you needed all that protein to gain muscle mass and get into fitness. (Competitions)

I was a smoker, drinker, party girl all the way!

To start with, i have allergies, to animals and pollin ... i have asthma to.

This mixed with my lifestyle and SMOKING was a total downfall.
And i could feel it.

One night after partying and drinking, me and my best friend walked home, we couldnt get a ride back.
In the night i couldnt sleep well, i was lying on my back and i couldnt get enough air in. I felt like i was chocking.
It wasnt a matter of question.... the day after i quit smoking.
I did have one day downfall on halloween night, after that though no more.
That was the 29th of october, that was also the last time i tasted alcohol.

I am 19 years old, 20 in march and i´ve always been "skinny contious" i would like to say health aware but it is not true. I would do just about anything to get to the low fat % i wanted. And it didnt matter if i took fat burning pills or caffine pills, this or that !
I´ve been a calorie/diet restricter since i was about 13 i would say.
Thats about 7 years of abusing my body.

So its been about 2 and a half months since i started... and i was wondering, well why am in not losing tonns of weight? why am i getting more asthma attacks since i started? why are my allergies acting up more? is is because im eating spinach or something? pollin on it?

It´s ALL detox...

I know that.. and i have finally come to the terms with just giving in. When i get asthma attacks i know why, some cleaning is going on in my body.
I do take my astma inhaler when it happens, and maby its not doing me any good because it works against the purpuse? but i dont feel safe going to sleep with out being able to breath easily.

After quiting smoking i wanted to go raw ... i did it, in a day cold turkey ! 17th of november was the first day.

I havent slipped once, its the same as with the smoking, its not a matter of wanting the food or craving it... its just not going into my mouth. EVER AGAIN.

I tried a raw place near by last weekend, i´ve tried it once before i had a raw pesto pizza, they did use some oils for it, olive i think .. so that is not really my thing. But i desided to "treat" myself.... OH BOY was that a treat ! :D haha
The first time it was fine, i felt fine after.... this time i had the same dish .... FELT HORRID !
I was sick to my stomach wanting to throw up for about 5 hours after lying in my bed wanting to sleep but couldnt.

I dont know if it was the huge amount of nuts or the fact that it was dehydrated or both .... !

I am never going back there. PERIOD.

Since then i´ve been doing high sweet fruits .. and lots of salads, i cannot get enough of them.
I did have some avocado today. I like it, its so creamy. I do feel like im cheating when i have it though... but thats just a part of my perfectionalism... having to have the perfect 90/5/5 ratios that i think look good... its about numbers still..
I use cronometer to keep track .. maby i should, maby i shouldnt, try listening to my body?

I´ve been feeling like i need less calories lately since i started sleeping more. I´ve been going to bed at 9 .. falling asleep finally after an hour or hour and a half.. waking up at 6 in the morning. SO usually its about 8 hours. 
I know that is not enough in the whole, but it def beats the 5-6 i was getting EVERY NIGHT, if even that.
PLUS the more i sleep the more i crave it, its 8 now, i dont have school until after noon tomorrow but im already in bed :D

Well... i have my 80 10 10 book next to me and i want to read it, but i feel like sleeping more.
Its weird, i have been craaaaving getting the book to read it in like a day or two .. but its taken me like a month to even get past the first pages.
Its like im afraid of something.... :/ or maby i think i know what it says....

Dont know ! :)

Hugs everyone
