I like your story! It's great that you went from eating meat to being raw so quickly.
Thanks for the kind words about Saoirse, he really is a beautiful bird! And he's very funny and smart too. You should hear the way he responds to some of my questions, he sounds like he really knows what's going on!
No, I'm a peaceful Korean. I don't think they were battlers at all. I think they just carried on in their villages, as nature lovers. My grandparents, my dad's side of the family, and my siblings and myself are all physically strong though. I used to armwrestle boys and was the 3rd strongest at armwrestling in my 8th grade pre-Algebra class. It was this 1. Song, 2. Michael, 3. Me 4. Eric. Eric had worked out all Summer and was buff and couldn't figure out how he still couldn't beat me.
Reminds me that I should be working out!
How are your workouts? What do you do for fitness?
Youre welcome. Its unfortunate that many people in society get confused with looking healthy and being healthy. Its why so many people idolise celebrities who eat awful diets and take drugs and smoke cigarettes; they confuse with looking healthy with being healthy.
The real test of health is not how someone looks on the outside, but how they look on the inside. :o)
Your friends pain in the stomach will be one of many attempts by his body to tell him to do something different. The challenge for him will be that since he gets many of the results that he wants from the diet he eats, he may not choose to acknowledge or do anything about these symptoms and may, as many seem to do, accept that these symptoms are just part of normal life.
Yeah thats is very true about nuts and seeds. I use to eat them alot. And I was never feeling any good. So I stopped eating them. Thats very funny about your doctor. Why are you choosing to take medication?
And its true about most Doctors not knowing about nutrition.
They recommend eating meat and other stuff.
I havent gone to a doctor in well over 6 years. And I dont feel bad about it.
Thats really good that you are taking charge for your health. Type 2 diabeties. Wow that must have been a big shock huh?
What is your usual food intake?
Luckily for me I eat raw at work and at home. I dont eat the food that my mom cooks anymore. Its been alot easier the second time around. I started to eat raw like 7 months ago then I fell back into eating cooked foods and fish.
I am mostly doing this for health reasons as well. Luckily for me I have always been healthy. I am 5'7 I think last time I weigh my self I was 120. But I dont know how much I weigh now. I dont want to end up like my parents I guess. They have alot of health problems like high cholesterol and blood pressure.
why do you want to loose 25 more pounds?
I have been working out. I am already slender and I dont want to loose weigth.
So I been mainly working out my lower body.
How did your family deal with eating raw?
I know my family will think I am crazy hehe.
hehe thank you. I have my flaws though. I went to the dentist and I will be getting my braces put in next week =). I cant wait for that.
Yeah i can imagine how tempting it must have been. I havent touch fish in over 2 weeks now, I been eating 100 percent raw for the past 5 days. Huge difference in my skin and energy. Imagine if I feel like this in only 5 days. How would I feel in a couple of months ??? I cant wait.
It might be that as well. But I do know for a fact that it has to do with the IUD. Its a birth control method that releases a hormone. I have a feeling that its that. I will finally remove it next monday. And I have made up my mind that I no longer will eat animal flesh. :)
