Welcome!

Per a request, I've decided to prove that, once and for all, I do eat. I quit weighing myself, but I'll weigh myself in the morning, write down what I eat all day, record my exercise for the day, and post it here so you all can see what it's like to live mostly raw and almost completely healthy. I haven't tracked calories before, but I can try to do that too so you can see the calculations and realize that I eat more than you think I should for my size. I'll do this for you so you can join me on my journey. Enjoy!

Breakfast at 4:30 am:

  • 4 bananas = 400 calories (was supposed to be 5 bananas but one was bad.)
Snack at 8:00 am:
  • 4 bananas = 400 calories
Lunch at 11:00 am: 
  • 2 slices cooked eggplant = 40 calories
  • 1/2 C homemade cooked marinara = 30 calories
  • 1 C cooked mushrooms with olive oil = 170 calories
  • 2 tsp goat cheese = 45 calories
Snack at 2:15 pm:
  • 5 cherry tomatoes = 15 calories
  • 1 banana = 100 calories
Dinner at 4:30 pm:
  • Baked potato with sea salt and olive oil = 300 calories
  • 1/2 C homemade salsa = 30 calories
Dessert 5:45 pm:
Calories: 1605
Water intake: 170 oz
Exercise: 30 Day Shred level 2 - 25 minutes
Sunshine: 15 minutes outside, 50 minutes in the car.
Weight: Didn't weigh myself this morning. Maybe 116.

Today I didn't eat enough I guess. I've been aiming for 2000 calories, but like I said, I haven't been counting calories. I'd eat more in the car, but I exercise when I get home. And usually I eat more for breakfast when I make a smoothie, so tomorrow will be better since the blender is clean. Smoothies are great for a raw foods lifestyle to pack in the needed calories. At dinner, though, I could have eaten another baked potato. I wasn't hungry. Just wanted to keep eating. If we're being honest here, which I am, I'm on my period, so that makes a little sense to me. Then I needed the brownie, but it was all raw, real ingredients. Either way, today was what it was. I eat all day long, I exercise, and a drink lots of water. I like to get outside and get some sunshine. It's just good for the body. So what do you think? This is my life. I eat to live and not the other way around. 

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Your diet is like the total opposite to mine. I almost eat entirely meat. People think its wierd but im very healthy :)

I don't believe that healthy is relative necessarily, so I'd look into the whole meat-eating thing and ask what exactly you mean by healthy. There is a lot of research out there. No one wants to be told that their way of life isn't healthy or anything, but we definitely don't need to eat meat as humans. Just a thought. :o)
