Hello friends!

I'm twenty-something, and I'm very lost. There are many things in this world I am aware of - too many things to ignore, and this is why I am here. I'm a bit of an oddball, but I'm extremely open-minded and will try anything once, so it has been wonderful to learn new things about this side of the world where everyone is stuffing themselves with nature's tastiest treats and reaping the benefits!

As a lot of the women (and men) come to this lifestyle with disordered eating pasts and presents, I too come here wearing my badges of dishonor: calorie-restrictor, weight obsessed, digestively challenged, nut-binger, and hypochondriac. I may have given up the most severe case of calorie restriction 2 years ago, but I would certainly be heading down that beaten path again in no time.

Seventh grade was when I really hit puberty and hence began noticing my body in a negative way. Having been twig thin my whole life prior, people were (and still are) OBSESSED with putting emphasis on my thinness, and this made me hyper aware of my body. As my body grew and shifted, my adolescent mind body could not keep up with my woman body. I did not recognize myself or feel comfortable with my adult form until LATE high school. Even then it was through the eyes of a girl who just really dived into her disordered eating career. I remember specifically having a beautiful friend who competitively compared herself to me constantly in order to feel better about her progress and her weight loss, and I was vulnerable to her and from then on allowed myself to be swallowed by that evil cycle of restrict and exercise and repeat to keep up with her. Naturally, she abandoned our friendship in the middle of my darkest, under-carbed days when I needed help the most, and I was left to reflect on the law of attraction, not fully understanding at the time I was the one bringing negativity into my life.

To be honest, I believe I had disordered eating patterns way before I was ever conscious of my weight. Even as a little one, I ate all the ice cream, cookies and salty snacks I wanted without gaining a thing, and I had little knowledge of what even came close to a balanced meal let alone one based on whole foods. It wasn't until high school I started making "healthier" decisions, but it was after a long weekend of little food at an Anime Convention that the real restrictions began. I was very proud of my accomplishments that weekend: not only had I landed my first (and eventually very unhealthy) relationship, I had booked my first big calorie-restriction gig. The rest is history.

Somewhere down the line I convinced myself to become a vegetarian despite my parents' refusal to feed me if I did, but I returned to meat a few years later in order to "get better" and heal my body. I've had a slew of doctors, a naturopath, a nutritionist, and a gastroenterologist, and every one of them suggested I eat meat. It was hard to ignore the advice when we are taught to blindly follow the advice of our physicians like their word is God. The naturopath certainly left her impression on me, and a lot of her weird rules and ways of eating reinforced my disordered eating habits with orthorexia on the side.

Let's jump to now: I've been feeling ill. My metabolism in compromised GREATLY, I am still healing from antibiotics given to me in order to eradicate vicious h. pylori, I am jumping head first into Raw Till 4 despite having done Fully Raw wrong 7 months prior, and I am more confused than ever about what to eat and what will keep my body from feeling so ill. Lastly, I am giving Raw Till 4 a go so I do not kill myself with caloric restrictions, insufficient nutrients, and weight obsession and so I stop compromising the planet as best I can.

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?
Gosh, I feel very nervous about getting little variety of food everyday despite trying to feel the abundance. I need help finding a good balance!

I also need assistance in regards to my vitamins because I have a lot of concern about those. I suppose you could say I'm afraid of compromising negatively in any way after spending so much money to try to "fix" it. All I know is restricting isn't the way... If I can live a life with no calorie restrictions and still lose weight I will feel so much more at peace with my body.

Still, I am trying to get away from the mainstream expectations, but it leaves me very confused.
