80 10 10 Group trial anyone?
I've been up on a ladder painting my house all week and just saw your comment.
Yes, you make sense with the soul thing, like 'soul food', I get it now. Words have different meanings for everyone, it's a wonder we can communicate at all.
I cheated this week too. I had to keep going to get my helper mexican food for lunch and finally I couldn't resist it.
So i had some and it did taste good and now I'm back on the wagon.
That's the thing about any diet, it's not written in stone, I do the best I can and acknowledge my weaknesses and move on.
freepam, it sounds like your perspective is really good. It never helps to beat ourselves up about things; I really try not to do that. I want to go completely raw, and I'm doing my absolute best now. You're doing great! I'm actually going to try this 7-day detox on the raw divas website; it's low fat, whole food raw, pretty much 80/10/10. Except, they don't have any overt fat for 7 days as part of the detox. I think I'm going to try it out. Staying raw has gotten easier as I've found that when I do eat cooked food, it doesn't taste great and it gives me bad digestion problems. I now feel like I'd really like to commit to eating raw, at least the vast majority of the time.
P.S. I'm loooving the simplicity of eating whole raw foods, with no spices or salt or anything. I barely have any dishes, have extra time, and it just feels nice to not even really think about that whole part of eating. I'm not looking up recipes or cooking for a long time, I'm just eating when I'm hungry and enjoying the gorgeous tastes of ripe fruits, earthy greens and fresh vegetables. I feel so much more clear and focused than when I was doing a gourmet raw diet!
Yes, I second all of that. it frees up so much time and energy for other creative things. The funny part is that my daughter-in-law and I both had the same effect - we are transforming our houses. So that's a side blessing of the diet. Now we are fixing stuff we haven't been happy with for ages.
Mmm! just made a strawberry and papaya smoothie.
That's great! I should get to work on my house, but I can't seem to get up enough motivation. I'll start Monday, hee hee. I have done a lot of knitting and job-searching, though, and I've pretty much sold my car. So I guess I have done a lot! I made this smoothie the other day, and I loved it so much. It was banana, papaya, and dates. It was so delicious and dessert-like! I'm thinking that that's the kind of thing I would love to have on a birthday or a special occasion.
I have candida and very interested in to see how you guys are getting on four months after the trial.
Still going strong with the 811, any candida symptoms?? I have ordered my boko but afarid of trying it!
Any feedback from you trialers would be great!
That's awesome you ordered your book. I think it's the only raw book that people really need. There is a forum of 801010ers over at www.30bananasaday.com if you want to browse around and check out the 600+ people who are doing it every day.
Hey fellow 80/10/10-ers,
I've already posted this elsewhere on the forum, but I thought you guys might be interested. I'm moderating a 30 day challenge starting today on rawveganfitness.com. It's for anyone who wants to be raw vegan, but I personally subscribe to a low-fat raw vegan diet.
The site has a whole bunch of great fitness articles and there is a workout of the week as well posted by Michael (I'm sure you know him if you visit Dr. Graham's forum).
Hope to see you there,
