30 Bananas a Day!

Hi Ya'll, Heather here.


I am brand new to this lifestyle, though have been tiptoeing the line for about a month now. Some days will be raw, others will be the "junk food" vegan. Initially, I have lost weight, but for the past month it has stayed consistent, and I have days where I feel so tired. Then I found Durianrider's youtube page, and from there, Freelee's page, and I was so intrigued and interested!

I am one-third of the way through 811 book, and it makes so much sense! I identify myself with so many of the issues that the high fat vegans have.....bloating, digestion issues, acne, loss of energy, etc. I am pretty sure I have a candida issue too. On the subject of candida, I was telling my mom about this lifestyle and how Doug Graham talked about it being a fat issue, not a blood sugar issue with high amounts of candida. She told me, "Um, I don't think so....every diet guru has their theories". Now, I am the type of person that, in the moment, I end up being silent, but afterwards, a whole torrent of responses pop into my head and I am like, DARN!!! I should have said that and that and that!

It just all makes so much common sense to me, and I am so happy to be a part of this community, because I know I will succeed with the resources and support  this site provides. I am excited and ready to join this journey with you all!

Hey Heather:) I'm new to this as well.  I was tired of the vegan junk food binging and was looking for a more strict regime when I came upon this site.  The idea of that much fruit was scary to me and I definitely didn't want to tell anyone because I knew their opinions would have an effect on my trying it.

So now a few weeks into things i've had a lot of ups and downs.  One minute I love it and then the next I think i'm crazy to think this is normal.  A lot of it has been going against what I have learned and what I hear and just seeing what my body is telling me. 

I have stopped craving anything. I have always had huge cravings for random things depending what i'm restricitng.  I'm also a huge snacker.  While commuting on the train throughout the city I always feel the need to have a snack of crackers or nuts. However lately I have not felt the urge to snack!  I make sure I get enough fruits and i'm actually satisfied.

So i'm still so new to this but everyday i'm feeling more comfortable with it and in balance. The biggest thing I crave are my banana shakes. I'm in love with my blender:P  I'd love to connect with you Heather to see how things are going.

Best of luck to you in your new journey! I'm new to this too and I'm doing it to have a healthy, happy life. I think this is a spiritual journey too, and as we detoxify, we'll be able to get rid of all the poison in our bodies and minds.

Welcome! I can definitely relate, but you'll learn from personal experience the dramatic changes that take place low-fat raw vs high-fat... :)
