does anyone mind if i start this? if another one is already been started and i missed it, please ignore me and just let me know where the thread is.
I really find these support groups so helpful. I am DEFINITELY still in transition to 811rv, so I appreciate the tolerance and helpfulness on this board. I am about 75-10-15 right now. I did the first (I think?) 811rv challenge on this board and while I never quite got to a consistent 10% fat, I felt so much better physically and emotionally, and learned a great deal about my body. I ‘fell off’ the raw wagon for a few weeks late in august, eating more cooked vegan (low fat quinoa and beans mostly) which I thought would be okay for my body, but it really wasn’t ideal. So i would like to move my way back towards 811.
my ‘cheats’ (just to get em out there): i eat cacao sometimes. i drink hot tea sometimes (kicked the caffeine habit though! no more coffee for me!) i occasionally taste my boys’ cooked vegan food to see if it’s good before i serve it to them. i occasionally drink a glass of red wine. i love celtic sea salt.
confession over. as you can see, i am in no way trying to be a ‘leader’ for this thread LOL—i am still transitioning. but perhaps my honesty with my shortcomings will encourage others to give this path a try, knowing that you can be far from “perfect” and still give it a go! I think it was dr. graham himself who said full transition to the 811rv lifestyle can take up to 7 years…so it’s all good :)
anyone interested in joining me this month?
