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.
