34 – Loving 80/10/10 Raw Vegan

Check out my video update (click on picture below) on living and loving 80/10/10 raw vegan!

I have been on the 80/10/10 raw vegan “diet” for 24 days now (the first week or so I was still transitioning over).

A few reasons why I’m LOVING it:

~ I have a list of health issues I wanted to clear up.  My digestive issues have almost completely cleared up on 80/10/10… in less than one week of doing this faithfully.

~ Clean living:  no cooking necessary 🙂

~ I have a sweet tooth for a reason, and it’s for FRUIT!

~ I feel more satisfied at a deep level.  My vitality and love for life is forever increasing.

~ Family seeing me, and joining in.

~~~~~~Daughter getting steady on the fruit and feeling better.  She has lost 5 pounds so far.

~~~~~~Husband getting on the salads in the evenings and increasing his fruit smoothies in the mornings.  He says he’s feeling better.

~ I’ve started exercising again, because my energy levels are increasing.

~ My weight loss total… so far is 7 pounds.  I lost the first 5 or 6 rather quickly.

~ My BMI (body mass index) is reducing.  Not that long ago I was up around 29% body fat… and now I’m at around 25%.

So, what do I eat now?

~ 80% fruits all day long (amazing smoothies, or just whole fruit, plus some “veggies” that really digest as fruit – see below)

~ 10% protein through greens and veggies, and some nuts or seeds

~ 10% fats – mainly in my salad dressings (see my Recipe tab for these)

Proper food combining made a huge difference for me with digestion.

For example, I’ve found that cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and bell peppers are really fruits.  So they digest better with other fruits.
