Bananas Wearing Lipstick

Documenting my experience on a high carb vegan lifestyle while wearing a lot of lipstick.

Anyone Who May Have Anxiety

angels-love-blackeyed-hunters:

ASMR is a really relaxing way to fall asleep or just lose yourself in the peacefulness of sound and visual triggers such as:

NAIL TAPPING
SCRATCHING
SOFT WHISPERS
PAGE FLIPPING

And so much more

It’s just a bunch of sounds to help you relax incase you can’t sleep or are feeling stressed out….

i'ts the food that keeps you full for a long time, so i believe mixing it and rice with few fruit meals during the day gives you a good balance.

ctlnflx asked: Hey! I don't know if you remember me but about a month ago you told me that it was okay to not feel so great on the 801010 lifestyle, eating upwards of 2500 calories a day. I just wanted to say that you were right and I felt pretty miserable the entire time, I stopped about a week ago and I just feel SO much better. I wanted to thank you so much for helping me not feel like a terrible person for stopping and enforcing that it's not always for everyone. You are the bees knees!

YAY FOR YOU!  I’m so happy I could help.  I’m just a 22 year old girl in nyc trying to figure my life out so the fact that you took my advice really means a lot.  It was a difficult decision for me to give up that lifestyle but once I did I felt so silly for putting so much pressure on myself.  I’ve been reading the #freelee tag today and there are other people who had similar experiences with high calories and even high fructose.  I wish you the best of luck with everything you do.  Keep in touch :).  Hope you don’t mind I made this public.  

ritneywhite asked: Sonya, I'd love to hear more about your opinions on freelee and the other 801010 gurus. You said they ruined your health? I don't believe freelee knows what she's talking about half the time but I really am interested in hearing your thoughts!

I have never felt worse than I did when I ate 801010. From week 2, my abdomen swelled up overnight and regardless of how much I ate- my lower stomach was distended like never before in my life. I looked 5 months pregnant for almost the entire year that I was 801010.

After month 1- i stopped being able to digest raw food completely, every time I ate raw fruits or vegetables my stomach started KILLING me with sharp pains. I decided to stop eating raw & just do high carb vegan by going on a sweet potato only diet in September. The bloating was still there. I didn’t know what was wrong with me so I had a endoscopy and colonoscopy test done- both of which made me extremely anxious and cry for a week because I hate surgeries and the experience was so frightening. I went to like 10 different doctors and ER hospitals asking for answers and nobody knew why my stomach was distended out of nowhere. I saw nutritionists, gastroenterologists all around Toronto and all of them told me “the problem is your diet” and I didn’t believe them. Isn’t 801010 the “perfect” diet? 

I started to feel a bit better on 801010 in 4 months and actually felt really good eating a lot of salads (although I always ate more fat than 10%). Then I started listening to Freelee. When I watched her videos it was like she was hypnotizing me and chanting to me what was right and wrong. “Carb up!! Fruit calories don’t count! A calorie is not a calorie! I ate 20 bananas today for breakfast and look how skinny I am! LOW fat!!” When I watched her I started to believe in the stupid ass shit she would say without actually questioning it or listening to MY body or looking at MY body. I ate 10 mangoes for breakfast- I was still STARVING after that meal of over 1500 calories. My stomach was HUGE the whole day. I COULD NOT BREATHE after eating. BUT I was still hungry. I was not satisfied. My body needed MORE than “fructose”. Although I kept believing her. I kept watching all these people on youtube convincing me that “my body was healing” and that “your body runs on fructose”.. inside I felt disgusting, I gained almost 10 pounds of FAT - NOT water weight, and I was binge eating. I ate to the point that I was about to throw up, because no matter how much fruit I ate I wanted something else. 
This hindered my modelling because I was afraid to do shoots because my stomach was always huge. Freelee and other bloggers made me AFRAID of being even slightly hungry, they made me feel like the only way to health is by STUFFING yourself. 

Then 7 months later I started to feel extremely tired after all of my meals. I would eat 5 mangoes and a lb of stawberries for lunch and then fall asleep right after. The same would happen after my dinner. I had no energy after eating. I went to the doctors a million times again, wondering what was wrong with me. I had a low HDL cholesterol (obviously) but everything else was good. I was not vitamin deficient, but I felt like shit. This is what happens when you eat TOO much food. Your body puts the energy into digestion, and you have no energy to actually survive.

I had 4 cavities in my year of 801010. My teeth became brittle and my front tooth chipped one day in half when I was eating a raspberry … I know, when i happened all I could think was “wtf? a tooth breaking in half from a RASPBERRY?!” My gums started going up higher and it was painful. 

I never, ever had these problems with a normal vegan diet. 801010 made me sick, fat, and tired. It is NOT for everyone. I’m happy if it works for you- but it is not what my body needs. The funniest thing is, when you go on any raw food forumn all you see on the front page is people asking “why is my hair falling out?” “why am i always tired?” “help with brittle nails and dry skin!” “i have no sex drive, why?”. And then after that- 801010 gurus have the audacity to say this is the natural human diet and these people who are doing 801010 but having problems are just “doing it wrong”. BITCH if it was a “natural human diet” there would be NO WRONG WAY to do it. Hence- N A T U R A L.

This is some truth right here.  Listen to your body not people on the internet! 

Ok ok so although I don’t feel that freelee is complete bullshit and the whole “detox” thing, BUT that being said always always listen to your body. I made the mistake of shoving 10g carbs per kg of body fat in my body each day as Harley recommends, gaining 15 lbs and misery in 2 months. I dropped the cals a bit and ate how much I felt my body wanted and started losing weight and feeling 800%. It’s all about you and what works FOR you.

I totally agree!  It seems like a lot of people are slowly realizing that sure, the lifestyle works for some people but not for everyone.  The initial weight gain might not be so “initial” and detox is one thing and being sick is another.  Luckily I only did the lifestyle for four months but I did gain ten pounds!  Since going starch based with a lot of veggies I’ve lost the weight.
