Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
So, after being raw for a month I broke. I'm not beating myself up but I did have to re-evaluate why I was doing this in the first place. I want ultimate health. I want to feel my feet again and I want my hair to grow like it use to. All of these "little" things remind me of how in health I use to be. This is my vow to stay on this diet. Not only am I practicing HCRW I'm also becoming a fruitarian. I've been listening to this nature path Dr. Robert Morse ND.
Through listening to him I…Continue
Hey there everyone.
Merry Christmas everyone!! So I'm still shooting this documentary and I'm thinking about making a new youtube channel as Chocolate Sapote showcasing my progress. I'm also thinking about making a facebook twitter and a blog page under this psuedonym. Let me know what you think and if you all would watch it.
So I've been on a high fruit diet and it's been an amazing experience thus far. I'm diabetic and at first I was scared to do such a thing. But I learned the proper way to do it. In my experience when I eat mostly all fruits my blood sugars have been within range. I learned that fructose is the only sugar that doesn't need insulin to break into the cell wall.
With this in mind I try to eat only fruits I notice that when i add any vegetable it not only raises my blood sugar but…Continue
So I've been doing this raw/vegan thing for about a week or so and my main staple has been fruit and tons of it. As some of you know I'm a type 1 diabetic and I'm on a pump. I have insulin pumping in me hourly at a slow rate. I was kinda scared doing this because I know that fruit is loaded with sugar, but it's a good sugar. I've heard many people do this and there blood sugars go out of control. Well I learned that people that have done that have also been eating a lot of fats as well. I've…Continue
So at 13 I was diagnosed with this disease diabetes and I hated it so much and was so ashamed of it. I literally spent so much time not taking care of my diabetes and neglecting my health. It wasn't until I lost feeling in my feet and almost went blind at 26 that I started to pay attention and realized that I needed to start watching my blood sugar. Even with paying attention to my blood sugar my neuropathy was getting worse and worse. I was taking so much medication and supplements and not…Continue
So I noticed I'm not sure if it's a result of being raw but I've sleep less. Like I'll wake up refreshed it's the craziest thing. I've never been a real big sleeper but man I sleep so much less right now. Let me know if anyone else experience this. My energy level is through the roof btw...
So this makes day 3 of my 100% raw vegan diet and I'm in love with it. The problem in the past for me was that I didn't understand my body and how it worked and didn't know how to deal with craving and understanding true hunger. I learned that when my blood sugar is higher than 130 I get that feeling that I'm hungry and crave foods that don't work for me. I've been keeping close attention to my blood sugars and have been really staying on top of my game. I'm a diabetic and I'm on the pump…Continue
I'm sorry I haven't been posting a lot on here. I just moved to So Cal from Florida back in September. I've mainly just been trying to adjust. I've moved twice since I've been here and I might be moving again, anyways that's not why I'm writing. I've been struggling with remaining raw mainly because of convenience. I've actually been wanting to juice but don't own a juicer I'm looking for a juice bar close to here or even a juicer that's cheap like under…Continue
