I am a 17 year old teen who recently graduated from high school. My study of interest is still undeclared. The reason I am creating this page is because I am new to this lifestyle, and as many of you can relate, my family is not fully on board with this wagon :p I hope to meet a fellow vegan community where I can feel supported and receive more knowledge of this lifestyle. I am currently doing the HCLF raw till 4 lifestyle. My motive in the beginning for becoming vegan, at first, was due to health reasons. I come from a low-carb, high protein diet, and I would restrict my calorie intake and overly exercise to be slim, began binge eating, and repeated the cycle. I changed because I began to question WHY. I started to question WHY on a lot of things I was blinding myself to, being ignorant to. After watching Melanie Joy on TED taking about carnism; however, my motives for Being vegan changed. I realized how deceived we as humans are and I realized I HAVE a choice. The realization that I even had a Choice was made clear to me and the fact that Since birth our society has programmed us to believe a certain set of rules, a certain lifestyle without giving us the opportunity to have a choice appalled me. I am now in it for Animal Rights/Justice, Environmental benefits, Health reasons, and overall to help spread awareness and to do all I can to help spread this message out to the world, It is time our earth and fellow humans receive justice for the lies society have programmed us to believe. It is not Normal, Natural, and Necessary to kill another being for our own selfish acts. Now that I am done expressing my thoughts :p I am a very happy, driven, friendly person excited to continue my journey as a vegan :)

Hi Brenda, I saw you posted about your dismay with this diet. Are you strictly fruit till 4 and then only approved foods? Want to me map out your daily intake and exercise for me? Based on that I can provide some advice as I've been on this diet over a month now and gone through some phases.
