30 Bananas a Day!

I return to 30BaD with some reservations- none of which concern the actual diet and lifestyle, but moreover the mentality of some members. I hold this diet and lifestyle in the highest esteem as it's the only way I've lived that's has ever cleared up all of my health issues and provided me with enormous amounts of energy and positivity. Some of my best friends have come my way as a result of the connections made on this forum.

When I left last spring, there were a lot of other people leaving as well. I remember one young man in particular who messaged all his friends announcing his departure from 30BaD and the ensuing angry responses. People verbally attacked this man for his decision to leave the forum and these attacks were the same reason he was leaving- this forum is meant to turn people ONTO the idea of being 811RV. It's meant to SUPPORT those interested in maintaining a high-carb, raw vegan, high fruit lifestyle, or at least that's what it says when you sign up.

It is my firm belief that attacking and "calling out" people who aren't following the same lifestyle is not only rude and uncalled for, but it actually pushes people away. The people on here who live a clean, 811RV, vibrant lifestyle naturally attract people to them and "convert" them to eating this way. The people who crude, nasty pictures of animal abuse and call meat-eaters "murderers" are not contributing to the cause at all. In fact, they're turning people away from it.

So I'm returning to meet other like-minded people and gain support in transitioning back to what I believe to be the best diet and lifestyle out there. With that, I intend to be 100% supportive of others, peaceful, and treat everyone (regardless of diet and lifestyle) with the respect and dignity that each human being deserves.

O I hope we get to meet!  I love 811 but have been turned off by some of the people who get pretty "cult"ish and closeminded.  Love your post and look forward to sharing a fruity meal and adventures :)

Oh, and you may want to stay out of the Steamroom ;)  Seriously,  I've found the fitness discussions to be the most positive and the people there very helpful and friendly.

Glad you're back, we need all the level headed people we can get (in addition to the hotheads)!  Although I believe that everyone has their own way of communicating, I like the positive type best and truly feel that people are more apt to pay attention to someone who is respectful.

Good on you Shannon for returning, and speaking your truth and peace... I have just arrived and learning the in's and out's of this whole shabang.. I too hope to feel support and love.. I don't know what has happened in the past and that is OK, but I do know that people are very quick to judge and ridicule others for their choices, which says alot more about that person judging and cursing really. So keep that in mind, walk the other way if it happens, resonate your frequency of Light and Peace and those beautiful souls that are your reflection will come to you like Honey, and they will stick with you! :)
