About Me

My photo
My life's purpose is best described by: Be the change you want to see in the world: Gandhi. Smiling is my "botox"-FORGET THE DRUGS AND SURGERY. I spice up my life, not my diet, which is SIMPLY DELICIOUS on its own. KISS: I Keep it simple sugars-from whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits (veggies,some nuts/seeds too). The 811rv motto is: simplicity at mealtime, variety throughout the year. My motto is: I live in my own little world, but it's ok they all know me there. At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.


Questioning 80/10/10

Why oh why do people question 80/10/10? I look at what is the healthiest, most natural, instinctive, scientifically and anthropologically sound diet out there and yet there are people asking if it can be good, if they will get deficiencies etc. etc. How could you get deficiencies with this? If the guys eating pizza (raw or cooked) don't get deficiencies, why would you?
For those naysayers, who say we should have fats or cooked starches instead of fruits, is there ANY scientific basis for this? Is there an instinctive basis?? NONE, not that they have told me anyway!!
I for one know how much I dislike fats, not that they taste bad, but because of the way I feel, so drugged and sleepy. My hormones go crazy. I feel depressed, I get moody and crazy. Mr. David Wolfe had fat man tits when I last saw him, his skin was NOT glowing, in fact, I wouldn't even call him a raw foodist. To the people questioning 811, WHERE is there a model in nature for high fat raw? WHERE is the science behind it? etc. etc. etc. Step OUT of your mind and step INTO your body for ONCE in your life, and then you will KNOW, beyond a doubt, that 811 is the ONLY way to eat. Only thing I add personally is green juices, I believe in those benefits for myself, don't want arguments, I am IN my own body. Thanks for letting me vent.

Ian, I've been trying to leave a comment on your blog. Are you still having problems with spam and blocking comments?

I tried the 811 diet with no success. I got very shaky felt really physically ill. I truly see that it transforms peoples lives inside and out but could it be that it doesn't work for everyone?

Ms. Violetta, thank-you so much for your comment. I don't know you or if and how you tried 80/10/10, but I do know that it is the best, healthiest and most natural diet for all humans. Nonetheless, most humans today do not follow it nor are they ready, willing or able to. But what you describe sounds to me,in my unprofessional and personal opinion, very much like detox symptoms. This would mean that you were on the right path, but you needed to give it more time. Hope this helps. Ciao
