30 Bananas a Day!

Okay, so I've been a member here since about Feb 2010 - about a year and a half.

This is my first blog post.

It was my brother in law who told me about 30BaD - he's friends with Harley - so I became a member. I read Doug Graham's 801010 diet book and it made sense, so I became lfrv overnight. After a week (and noticing the benefits) I went off the diet. My husband has a history of being a baker and a pastry chef, so he has food issues, mostly the psychological/social side of things. For him, eating and sharing a meal is a huge thing and even sitting at the same table eating different foods was freaking him out. His whole family have been vegetarian for 30+ years so its not like he's a meat eater at all.


So I've been lurking here since last February and learning more and becoming more confident. Now I feel like I know the truth, so I can't hide from it anymore and I have to give this the best go that I can. It is now day 4 as 100% raw and last night we discussed the whole thing - I told him that I was disappointed that last time I 'quit' because of him, and that if I 'quit' this time, I want it to be of my own accord, so that I don't resent or blame him. He understands, and after airing his concerns we left it be. Not a green light, more like an amber one.


This time I am more prepared. I have better knowledge of what it takes to be a lfrv. And I am a stronger person now too. I am fully prepared in case there is a massive blow-up, because I know that my lifestyle change will be met with strong resistance, and it may even put our relationship to the test. I am not worried, we have a strong foundation and I know that he will come to accept my choice in time. When he sees the results he will be happy for me.


Wish me luck!

Wow! This is great news!

I can relate to the social issues you talk about with your husband, my hubby keeps saying the same thing, we can't sit down and have a big meal... blah blah blah! I just ignore him or tell him I don't mnd sitting and eating my fruit on a plate or out of a bowl (instead of straight out of the blender!)
I've even been out to dinner with him and friends and had fruit salad and then garden salad.
Give him time, he'll see the benefits.... Giggidy go... Lol just joking...
But yeah he'll notice the difference, more energy, less moody ( i don't know if this is generally what happens, but for me I noticed I was more stable!), I'm sure there'll be more benefits but obviously everyone is unique!
Keep us all posted on your progress and his!
Good luck - not that you'll need it or I believe in it - you make your own and this time your committed so that's half the battle!!
Fruity postivity coming your way :)
