Welcome! This ebook has been in development for YEARS!

I have put a lot of time into making it as informative and helpful as possible. It contains a months worth of my blog entries from November 2006 when I started my raw food journey PLUS much much more. Boy I had some stuff ups!
I will show you where I went wrong and how you can avoid the mistakes I made.

I'm sorry to say that I really hate this book. Everything from the format to the information is dreadful. This diet is not healthy at all, and I think the author is very misinformed when it comes to nutrition. Do yourself and your body a favor and eat a nice, balanced vegan diet instead.

I have been flirting with raw veganism for about two months now, and this ebook is as helpful with that endeavour as Freelee promises it to be. From chronicling her initial mistakes in becoming fruitarian to tips on preventing cravings and the importance of sport, sun and sleep - I learned quite a bit about the practical end of adopting a healthier diet and lifestyle. If you're looking for the biological validity of such a lifestyle, go elsewhere, because Freelee doesn't really focus on the bare ...more

Following her advice made me sick. Plain and simple. Do not read this book the information it contains very dangerous if you have pre existing conditions that the author simply has no expertise about - in my case insulin resistance which was worsened when I applied freelee's advice I was constantly nauseous. The author has no credentials only states what works for herself. I felt I was reading some high school student's journal a lot of filler was used in this book by publishing her internet pos ...more

ok, where to start?
I don't know what to think of books concerning health that were written by people who write about their beliefs about health&nutrition coming ONLY FROM EXPERIENCE.
I REALLY think this should be forbidden.
People who have no academic degree shouldn't be able to give other people any health advises.
I know that nowadays 'recent studies' can't be trusted (this is very sad, actually), but not making ANY reference to ANY book (except for Graham's book 80/10/10), ANY study or ANY C

It's a great book. I really like the way Freelee has described every single challenge she faced during the process which enabled me to relate to her and understand the issues one faces during the initial phase. I feel much motivated and inspired. I would definitely recommend this book to the people I love. :-)

Not your average health book! Entertaining yet informative. I am also reading 80/10/10 which has so much information but found this as a more simpler approach to explaining the high carb, low fat, raw vegan lifestyle. Excited to try!!

Love Freelee the banana girl! Don't be taken back by this life style if you are new to the high carb vegan lifestyle. It may seem strange at first but it's the best way to live.

I am currently considering following this program in an effort to shed some kilos and improve my digestion and over all health. As I am already a vegan, I think my transition to this should be a bit easier than someone who is a corpse muncher, but I think it will still be a challenge.
But back to the book...I read this book AFTER reading the "80/10/10 Diet" by Dr Douglas Graham. There are a lot of similarities to the two, though this author provides an alternative to the fully raw, low fat, high

I'd classify this as a memoir, not a diet book, contrary to popular Internet beliefs. The author is, unabashedly, a fruitcake. But, refreshingly, she never claims to be otherwise. This is essentially a blog turned book in which she annotates her past experiences and beliefs as a fitness nerd with no claimed qualifications. I found it fascinating how she vacillated and felt confused along her way navigating the culture in Australia of rich white people with phoney Eastern spirituality and a milit ...more

Freelee has an excellent message.

This is not a book to read for the quality of the writing or for nutritional research. It is poorly written, provides no citations of research or science, and contains some explanations and recommendations that should certainly be taken with a grain of salt. You will find no technical descriptions of the complex interactions of our bodies and the macro- or micro-nutrients they require.

That being said, I still believe very much in Freelee's message and in the raw

The book is not the best written one, but the content is what truly matters here, especially when it comes to this kind of topic. There are some great recommendations that I have started implementing right away. I actually like the fact that she goes in details of her journey towards HCRV lifestyle and pinpoints her own mistakes along the way, as well as providing tried-out solutions to them. However, I believe that her second book is going to be much better and way more practical, hence, it's n ...more
