Hi All,I am just starting out on this lifestyle here in sunny South Africa where fruit grows a-plenty! I have been doing tons of reading, and I am very inspired! I have been eating about 80% fruit…Continue

I have been battling my entire life with weight issues. I went vegan because of the incredible cruelty that is inflicted on animals as my first concern, and my second concern was for health reasons. I thought that cutting out meat and dairy would help me to lose weight, but all of the fake meat products that I was replacing it with and the soy milk which I drank 3 glasses per day of, was not helping me to lose weight at all! I did feel healthier on the vegan diet however, less tired and definitely felt a bit more energetic but I was still not getting anywhere near the recommended intake of fruit and vegetables each day, which I believe is now 7-11 portions per day. I happened to come across a link of Facebook to a raw fruitarian who has changed her lifestyle using this diet, her changes were astounding and immediately I started asking her more questions. One thing led to another and here I am on this site, curious to read more and learn more! I started on approximately 80-90% raw per day, most of that fruit smoothies on 30/12/2011. I have never had more energy than I have right now and already I have noticed that my performance at gym is improving. I want to get to 100% raw but I still have to cook food at night for my boyfriend and I am battling to resist that one cooked meal! I am hoping to find some more inspiration here! This lifestyle seems absolutely amazing and makes complete sense when I really sit and think about it, we were not born with stoves on our backs, we were born to eat raw food off the tree.

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I love running, usually I prefer to run on the road, except in winter, then I prefer the treadmill! I love to watch tv series, a bit of a couch potato in that regard - I WILL change this! I have 4 cats that are my children, I love them dearly and I love spending time with them. I do not like most people, as most of them are so wrapped up in their own little worlds and have the blinkers pulled so tight over their eyes. I LOVE meeting other vegans, whether cooked/raw I LOVE people who love animals!
