I think this friendly competition is a great way to get yourself and others to eat more fruit. Pick a partner(s) that is eating similar amount as you so that you can push each other. It's a great way…Continue
I know I have not been following food combining rules 100%. I would get full from cooked veggies before I started most of my meals which resulted in undereating, lack of regularity, and bloating…Continue
Finding an ethical reason to avoid eating cooked food seems to be the only way for me to stay "on the wagon". Are there any videos/documentaries that can answer this?Continue
For me, it is currently mushrooms, even though I have 2700+ calories from fruits and veggies everyday. I know the negative effects of eating cooked mushrooms: my poo will have a sharp odor, the…Continue
Usually every time I fall off the raw wagon I gain a few pounds, but then I start eating just fruits and greens again and some the water weight goes away after 1 week or 2. But not this time. 3 months ago I gained another 10 pounds of fluid retention (after gaining 10 over the course of a year, 5 pounds at a time) and since then the excess water weight hasn't budged. For the past 3 weeks I've been having absolutely NOTHING but fruits, vegetables, and I had 1 small bowl of tofu 3…Continue
This has been going on for over a year, everytime I fall off the raw wagon and have UNSALTED starches I gain 5-10 pounds. It's getting worse and worse and it's not going away. It's making really physically uncomfortable, especially in the face. I feel the discomfort all the time. Would it be ok to take a diuretic? Would it make me lose the extra fluid? I know that the fluid is not exactly the problem but the toxins in my body that caused it but it's really making me uncomfortable...
I've been eating 811 vegan for a year, but I was having cooked greasy salty vegan food every now and then, therefore gained 10 pounds. For the past few months, there were a few times when I ate cooked starches for dinner I would feel nauseous later in the early morning. So I stopped eating plain rice and potatoes, but I've been having rice noodles for about a week and felt fine. I almost always eat a lot faster than recommended, I guess. But 2 nights ago I decided to have noodles made out of…Continue
I was in Chinatown earlier today and wasn't particularly looking for groceries as I already bought some bananas for 49 cents/pound yesterday, but I stumbled upon a store with a bunch of spotty bananas all piled up in front of a lady. When she told me they were $1 per bag, I just couldn't resist them. My bananas still need 2 more days to ripen, anyways, and I don't like relying too much on dates for my caloric intake. I just love how the low price make it seem as if the store's just BEGGING…Continue
