  • I have IBS and I recommend that you avoid fatty foods. Try eating mono meals of your favorite fruits to see what agrees with you. Personally I am able to eat of papayas, bananas, watermelon, cantaloupe, peeled apples, tomatoes and peeled cucumbers (…
  • Eating fresh fruits (bananas and tomatoes are two great examples) supply the body with FOS (fructooligosaccharide), which is the fuel that beneficial bacteria in the gut enjoy. I agree with your desire to avoid fermented foods (they make me very blo…
  • When Andrew turned a year old (he's 19 months now), I just served fruit! He enjoyed watermelon wedges as well as pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberries and grapes. Even now he prefers simply eating fruit to gourmet recipes. There's plenty of time to in…
  • Hi Rita, My 19 month old only eats low fat fruits and vegetables. Since he's still nursing he's not 8/1/1, but once he decides to wean I'm sure he will be. Visit Dr Graham's message board as he gives a lot of good advice on this and other subjects (…
  • Nora Lenz of www.rawschool.com ate mostly non-organic produce and she did just fine. I'm doing great eating mostly conventionally grown food.
  • Eating a high fruit diet works best for me.
    in IBS anyone??? Comment by Karmyngirl
  • My three favorites, listed in alphabetical order, are Anthony Anderson, Richard Blackman & Markus Rothkranz!
  • This is why the War On Drugs makes no sense. It’s illegal for people to choose (or not choose) the substances they want in their body yet when it comes to pesticides/herbicides/insecticides being sprayed on the street, the people living there have n…
  • I’m among those 18% who don’t like either candidate; I know quite a few people who agree!
  • There’s nothing wrong with eating all the sweet fruit you care for. Eating fresh fruit is not like eating refined sugar. Eat your fruit and enjoy! :)
  • Winesap, jonathan, pink lady, honeycrisp, red delicious—I like them all. As for pears, I really like seckel pears.

  • Personally I’m not a fan of either candidate.
  • Hi oiselet, I will post any future gatherings!
  • Hi Carrie, Thank you for your kind post. You should organize your own event! I’m sure there are quite a few of raw vegans in Central NY who feel the way you do. Give it a try and see who shows up! Good luck! :) Karmyn
  • Jersey Shore Raw Vegan Social Gathering is this Sunday! E-mail me: karmyngirl@yahoo.com if you wish to attend!!! See you there! :)
  • I lived in Jersey for almost 2 years. My son and I are moving to Costa Rica in three weeks. We will stay there on tourist visas which means we have to leave the country every 90 days for at least 72 hours. We will return to Jersey for the Christmas …
  • Thank you harmonylia! I actually grew up in Columbia!

  • It’s only been a few days! The weight loss will come. Just be patient! :)
  • 90% of my daily caloric intake comes from fruit! To answer your question Moth, Richard Blackman only eats fruit and has been doing so for a number of years and he looks fantastic!
  • Richard Blackman aka The Fruitarian One
  • Do you wish to gain lean mass? If so, eat low fat raw vegan food (join the 80 10 10 August Support Group located in the forums and definitely read Dr Grahams 80/10/10 diet book!) and do intense strength training workouts.
  • I live in Monmouth County!

  • Save your money and just do a salt water flush if you feel the need to cleanse. It works well and only cost pennies per cleanse! Put 1 heaping tablespoon of sea salt in 1 quart warm water and mix well. Drink the whole quart (if you can’t manage that…

  • Still on the mono meal train, but I’m going to get off on the next stop. I’m about to make a huge salad with a whole head of romaine, three large heirloom tomatoes, 8 stalks celery and fresh lime juice as dressing. I just finished eating 10 peaches.…
  • Hi Kayell, I believe we’ve been acquainted on Dr D’s 811rv board on vegsource.com! Remember to focus on what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong will fade away! Update: I’m still on the mono meal train! I started yesterday with some delic…
