I think I will try some. I love fermented flavors usually. You really can down the algae. :shock:

Dani, 'the tank' :lol: :lol: I LOVE IT! I haven't heard that one yet, maybe I will within a couple of weeks. That's awesome you are so dedicated and travel around with all of your meals as well. What do you usually pack that needs to stay cool?

Cubby, I def recommend it. Let me know how it goes. In case I forgot, add a lemon to it for taste. Many raw restaurants use rejuvelac and the leftover ground nuts from making nutmilk to make mock tunas (seaweed also) and mock cheeses. There are tons of recipes. I've made the mock tuna before, it's not bad. Cheese I haven't yet. As for the algae, I love getting that stuff down, it's so good for you and though many out there don't feel you need much protein, even as a bber, I DO and algae is one of the best sources bar none imo. I usually consume all 3 shakes in a row (usually during weight training) as it can be messy and a nuisance and of course, I prefer the taste of fruit and veggie juice.

Monday, JUNE 9th DAY NINE

Morning Weight: 195lbs (-1lb)
Bodyfat: 12% (+1)


Performed morning enema flush (2 bags of water) weight stayed the same. I think there was just something going on that last day because I had so much before I went to bed.

So it's been 9 days and i've lost 8lbs; not bad!

Did I mention that I have a magnetized vitamix? :D A friend of mine is all gun ho about magnet therapy and all that jazz. I know nothing about it and whether it works or not but about 3 years ago, he gave me these earth magnets to go around the blender and I figured what the hey, it can't hurt right?

I have a question for whomever reads this and might have an answer. I was always a believer in calories in vs out and i have been taking in alot of calories in liguid form. As much as I had before the feast annd some days even more. I wanted to lose weight granted but I thought i'd have to consume less to do so and maintain right now yet I continue to lose weight. I asked Matt Monarch, a raw food dude (saw him yest at a raw foods expo) and he said the whole 'calories' thing was one big myth and not to go by it. Thoughts anyone?

Today's Intake
-14oz Rejuvelac
-64oz Durian Blend (3 cups Durian, water)
-64oz Organic Vegetable Juice Blend (organic kale, organic cilantro,
organic locally grown sorrel :D, organic bok choy, 1 conventional
avocado, 2 organic green apples, 1 organic lemon, organic dandelion
greens) everything but the kitchen sink!
-64oz Organic Juice Blend (10 organic bananas, 1 cup frozen organic
strawberries)
-25oz Organic Juice Blend (2 young thai coconuts, 1 organic lime, 1 cup
frozen wild blueberries, 1 cup frozen organic raspberries, 1 cup frozen
organic strawberries).
-198grams spirulina/chlorella blend in 88oz water.

Appetite today is in FULL EFFECT! Happy about that. Probably because i was pretty active this morning playing handball outdoors all morning. Yesterday I didn't even want to eat at all.

Spirulina has 30mg iron per 100g..

So if you take 230g algae you take about 65mg iron just from it...
And if you get 20mg more from you other foods you have 85mg iron...

Isn't that too much?We need 10-30mg....


Also you get too much copper too....

Oselifer, to answer your question, vitamin/mineral toxicity only applies to synthetic supplementation or enriched foods. When it comes to natural whole foods, our bodies can selectively absorb what they need from the 'complex' and eliminate the rest, no matter how much you consume in regards to micronutrients.

There was no such thing as vitamin toxicity before synthetics were introduced (around the 1950's) into our foods and supplementation and all that existed on the shelves of pharmacies where wheatgrass tablets

Please please consider picking up this book The Real Truth About Vitamins and Antioxidants
It is one of the quickest reads you will ever go through and it will change the way you think about nutrition FOREVER :D;)

I will pm you and give you a more in depth explanation.

That's good you lost about 7lbs, and in ten days with enough proteins from algaes so I guess it's mostly fat loss not lean mass.
Also, all those juices most have a very purifying effect on your organism.

Thanks Johan for the compliment on the avatar and supporting me in regards to this blog. It has been surprisingly easy but when I truly set my head to anything, I do it. I know there's a long way until I can eat solid food so I don't even think about it.......

I finally had to get a simcard reader b/c the cord for my camera was lost so that is why there are so manhy pictures at once. Here's a little photo album to give further insight into this:


pic1 (Greens), pic2 (Fruits), pic3(handcrank wheatgrass juicer), pic4(grazing), pic5(fruit juice blend), pic6(veggie juice blend), pic7(wheatgrass juicer in action), pic8(more grazing)
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

pic1(heirloom inca red quinoa), pic2(cayenne), pic3(juice to go), pic4(durian and coconut box and sunny my parrot), pic5(fruit), pic6(making rejuvelac), pic7(frozen prepper durian and montmorency tart cherries), pic8(coconut juice blend)
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage


pic1(charged water), pic2(charged water left overnight to catch the morning sun), pic3(the cooler i carry around), pic4(durian juice blend), pic5(more veggies), pic6(open durian), pic7(prepped durian), pic8(the leftovers)
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

pic1(coconut juice blend prep), pic2(Finished Rejuvelac!!!!), pic3(my greenstar juicer), pic4(berry/coconut juice bend prep), pic5(top view), pic6(enema bag, pic is sideways), pic7(greenstar juice in action)

This is great! Do you count the calories your intaking? If so you should post them underneath your daily juices and such :)

I did a juice fast for 4 days and thought I was gonna croak. Your an inspiration!

Thanks Andreafrancis, Oselifer, dontxhide....

Honestly, I think my skin is glowing right now from all the uv bulb sessions and then locking that color in outside in the 100 degree weather, lol

Oselifer thanks for the congrats, there's a long way to go though but it feels good to be alot leaner already and have people taking notice of that.

dontxhide, I think that counting calories would be a real pain and I thought about it but decided not to. But as i'm losing weight at such a rapid pace and having a trying time slowing that loss down, I looked at my caloric intake and it seems to be somewhere in the range of 3000-4000 calories a day. I'm completely baffled as to why I can consume just as much if not more when i do liquid and yet lose weight like it was just a winter coat I took off.
