  • what should we do to avoid heart disease?

    Hi there, healthyguy1,

    i’ll attempt to answer your question to the best of my ability and common sense knowledge, meaning, I am not an “expert”-anything.  

    First, you are not responsible for anyone’s health but your own, and same goes for your grandfather, but both of you should steer clear of any fried foods, refined sugars, (which is everywhere except in fresh fruit - fresh fruit contain natural sugars which are good for you), stay away from animal products, including poultry and fish.  And just when you think there will be nothing left for you to eat, do not despair, you’re on the right track (from a healthy standpoint) if you’re here on The Rawtarian site, which is jampacked with hundreds of heart healthy easy to make recipes I know for a fact you’ll enjoy. You should also incorporate daily light exercise into your routine, something as simple as 30 min walking will work wonders for your overall health and not just your heart.  If it’s too cold out, put on a hat and gloves and hit the road, rain or shine.  Listen to the ques your own body is giving you as opposed to waiting to see what “experts” have to say. Your own body IS the expert, listen to it, it talks to you all day long or provides you best tips on what you should or should not be doing.  

    If you don’t know how to listen to your own body, you do it everyday without knowing it, for example, every time you feel a craving or hunger kicks in, that’s your body talking to you;  anytime you feel sleepy, that’s your body talking to you saying “I need rest,” etc. Hopefully I’ve answered your question.  Good luck!



  • New, eating disordered & in need of help

    Hello Kari!  I’m not sure if your question regarding teaming up with someone for support has been answered, and it could be as a result of your entire statement.  Since most of us here are food lovers, we can only relate to the binge eating part of your current unhealthy conditions.  As far as anorexia, I suppose “fasting” comes closest to it, except they do not call it “starvation” and that’s probably because people who fast are doing it for health reasons and only temporary, going back to eating at some point, while those suffering from anorexia keep on starving themselves well beyond what’s considered “safe” for the body.  From what I heard so far, not eating slows down the body’s metabolism, causing the double weight gain and other issues. (you probably know all this).

    Furthermore, you have not shared your specific weight and height, the two key factors in determining someone’s standard healthy weight.  While I’m sure everyone appreciated your honesty regarding your severe ailments, I personally think you would not benefit from pairing up with someone to keep you motivated to eat or eat healthy.  With the utmost sincerity, I think you would greatly benefit from either one of The Rawtarian’s apps, especially the one where Laura-Jane herself is your daily mentor and provides you with meal plans and/or suggestions.  If you end up “cheating,” you won’t upset anybody but yourself, which should be plenty motivational on its own to make you want to jump right back into your healthy eating habits.  (I had a friend in my teens with all three of your ailments just like you, and I’m familiar with how much you’re suffering.).

    So I urge you to try any of the recipes you will find on this site that most appeal to you, and I’m certain you will be so amazed and even question if it’s actually good for you, and that, rest assured, it is.  Do this one recipe at a time and you will regain overall health as well as maintain your ideal weight without harming your body or ever feeling guilty about eating desserts or any food in the raw form.  I know you can do this, the power is in your hands.  Still not convinced?  Read about the nutritional value of anything you eat.  No one can do this but yourself, in your own free time and at your own pace.  

    Wishing you well and good luck, and hopefully you will keep us posted in the future on your progress!
