Why am I so fat?

I started off as a hcrv 801010 almost 2 years ago and kept at it for about a year or a little less, and gradually switched to rt4 and now have a cooked meal almost every night (which I hate having but can't seem to quit). I've become so chunky and am miserable but everyone just says "you're not fat" etc etc, but I truly am. I have gained so much fat on the front of my body(stomach, boobs, quads, face, arms) and i just don't understand why. I see so many rt4 people thriving and losing weight,…See More

Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I am just starting on my LFRW lifestyle and am super excited! I decided to go raw in order to help heal my body from years of disordered eating and, most recently, leaky gut that is wreaking havoc. Just as importantly (or even more so to me), I want to do this for the animals because they deserve to live just like we deserve to! I am not 100% raw yet due to being unable to eat raw green vegetables because of some issues with my lips caused by leaky gut, but as soon as I am able to eat them again, I will be super happy and 100% raw! I can't wait to try all of the awesome raw salad ideas that I've been seeing around here! Just some more about myself...I am a bodybuilder/fitness lover, but haven't been able to workout at my best for a while due to my health, but I am on my way to recover with the LFRV lifestyle. I'm so excited to be on this journey and can't wait to enjoy and thrive the way that we are all meant to!

I'm HCRV already
Are you Connected?
yes i am
My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I love adventure novels as well as ones that are about nature, animals, and the environment as a whole. Action movies are awesome and so are comedies, but I don't have a favorite because there are too many to choose from! Pablo Neruda has to be one of my favorite poets. He is amazingly gifted with his words! As for pastimes, I love anything outdoors and have actually lived on a farm my whole life (horses, dogs, cats, goats, bunnies). I love training in the gym and running as well. Hanging with friends outside is also one of my favorite things to do :)

Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I would love help with understanding how much I need to eat for my goals of being lean with muscle while being happy and energetic at the same time! I come from the 1200-1400 cal/day fitness industry recommendations, including lots of protein, low carbs, etc, and I am scared of gaining fat on the HCRV lifestyle even though everything I have seen points out that the opposite is the case. It just scares me a bit and my anorexic mindset just needs help to be retrained.

Nor do we allow endorsement of non-vegan items or practises which involve the imprisonment, exploitation, abuse or murder of sentient beings.

Very discouraged

Posted on September 23, 2013 at 12:00pm 6 Comments

For the past week, my health has gone downhill right back to almost the same degree that I started at but not quite as bad. My lips are completely covered in blisters, itch, are raw, and just very painful. My acne has started popping up everywhere, not just on my face. My allergies are terrible...I had to wear a mask while doing barn chores this weekend. I've had mucus/phlegm in my throat all week and my throat feels swollen and itchy. And just today, I have been feeling acid… Continue

Day 162

Posted on September 20, 2013 at 1:00pm 3 Comments

Terrible pain in pelvic area this am while drinking water and while eating. Idk what it is.

Got period and it's really hurting. All I want to do is cry and go home and sleep. Probably from eating avocado(increased overt fats) lately and eating so many dates. Not continuing with that. Just want watermelon.

Almost caved in and took a Midol because the pain was so terrible, but instead I walked around campus for an hour. Was going to try to workout, but too much… Continue

Day 160

Posted on September 17, 2013 at 12:24pm 0 Comments

Lips and acne still not great. Wish they would heal faster.

Thinking that maybe dates could be contributing to all of the issues I'm having as well as the corn. Seems like my stomach can't digest them well or something, even as dateorade. Anyone have any insight?

Weight trained legs today.

I really don't like college. I'd much rather be working and learning things that interest me, like taking Dr. Graham's courses and such like that.

4L water, 9… Continue

Day 159

Posted on September 16, 2013 at 12:27pm 2 Comments

Have been really busy with school and haven't had much time for anything besides it. Will probably only be posting weekly updates now because of it.

Been a rough week for my lips, acne, and digestion. My lips have gotten really chapped, raw, and feel burnt even though they're not. My acne has broken out on my face and all over my body. I even have itchy bumps on my face. My tummy has been really gassy and just not feeling right.

Also, my allergies have been terrible and my… Continue

Glad to hear u r still plugging away. I know how frustrating the bloat can be. I am about the same. What is weird, I recently tried running again. On the days I run, my pelvic pain improves! Not sure what the connection is..... Just trying to find my balance. Again, glad to hear u r still doing 811!! :)

For the most part I've been doing great, just the past couple days have been a little rough and had some past negative thinking. But I'm just making sure I'm eating enough now and today I feel really good! Hope you're well today too :)

Hi Alex:) Reading your profile I felt like I had quite a bit in common with you. I've been mostly raw vegan and 801010 for about a month now and vegan for awhile before that! How are you?

Alex, do you know what is causing your problem with dry lips? Going from my experience, I think it is pineapple. Pineapple gives me very dry and cracked lips, even if I only eat a little.
