Fruit is Stacey’s Friend...blog entry # 18…my journey in becoming 100% LoFat Raw Vegan (LFRV), meaning eating 80% or more of my calorie intake from carbs >10% Fat, >10% protein. Aka 80/10/10 (811)…away from the standard American diet (SAD diet)
We have LIFT OFF!
Day 3 (28 days to go)
Wow so I’m three days into my new lifestyle. Not 100% LFRV, but on my way starting tomorrow! I have done pretty good the last three days not really slip ups because I hadn’t made the 100% commitment to myself or to all of you yet. But right here right now, I am professing my next commitment to being 100% LFRV for the month of April.
There are several reasons why I need to get back on track, #1 my deep desire to succeed at this healthy lifestyle, #2 my future wish to help other people learn how they can help themselves through this diet, and healthy lifestyle practices #3 because I am going to be an intern at a raw retreat, and don’t want to be a big fat phony! (in ashamed sad face voice, “they see my bs a mile away, blemishes on my face, stinky morning breath, and every other embarrassing bodily function that comes with eating a SAD diet)
Now that I am in my commitment I need to lay down the rules again, as much as I want my 2nd try to be as informative as the 1st so that people can learn and gain from my experience if they find themselves curious about this lifestyle, I know now that I was taking off more than I could chew (hehe not in fruit, but in tasks to keep the my readers as aware as possible). So in my second attempt I will try my best to keep up my data entry “but for-warning it may not always be there” in a little girl, I’m sorry selfish voice but I can’t help the whole world learn how to do their diet all by myself VOICE L
Rule 1 refocus – Remember what I wrote on day 1 of my 1st try, I sounded so ready and excited (if you don’t, don’t you fret here it is heeeere it is)
I’m taking The plunge into …da na na naaaaa …. High Water Content, Lo Fat, Lo Protein, Raw, Vegan, Whole, Fresh, Ripe, FRUITS & VEGETABLES!!!
How exciting right ?!?! :D
I know a lot of you may be asking yourself, how can a girl (or human) live on only raw fruits and vegetables?..... and I am not writing this to get into discussions or battles with my readers about what is right and what is wrong….I just want to prove, that not only is it possible to live on only raw fruits and vegetables, but I will THRIVE!
This is not your ordinary raw foodism diet. I believe that a lot of the raw food community eats a lot of stuff that really isn’t food at all. If you are interested in reading deeper into the diet I will be practicing please visit www.rawfoodexplained.com
I need to get back to that place….so I am very excited to be going on this trip in April, and I need to be as prepared as possible so I must do this for the remaining 28 days until I leave!
Rule 2- DO NOT go out to eat with Friends or the boyfriend! This leads to instant disaster! Today I tried to go eat lunch with my gf, I mentioned I could only eat at one place by our house, we get there & it has a bit of a wait (I could tell she was looking a little impatient) so I said do you just want to go somewhere else, and she says YES, so there you have it folks, no one is willing to put up with me and what I need to do to stay on track…. That’s right, if you want to do something for yourself you need to be prepared to do it alone (not sayin’ no one cares or no one supports but peeps just can’t be 100% caring or supportive 100% of the time so you have to be that for yourself)
Rule 3- Meet real life fruit friends, so that means taking some time to set up a meet-up http://www.meetup.com/LosAngelesFruitFriends/ join me if you will, and we can be great fruit friends together. It’s a tough gig all alone.
Rule 4- Don’t even make the slightest mistake! As I’ve said I’m all or nothing, and I know this about myself, so if I introduce even the tiniest variation to my diet I could face huge failure once again….leading to #5
Rule 5- if by chance I do fudge up (and it really could be with fudge because I like love fudge) then I need to not be so hard on myself, and get RIGHT back on that horse, and not wait so long, and be all depressed and down on myself like some loser.
