  1. Hey Robert! Thanks for asking, that's really sweet of you! Things have been pretty tough since the beginning of November...I started getting really sick and having no energy and having trouble keeping down food. It got so bad I had to bail on training (at my doctors advice, I totally fought him on it!) for my marathon for my friend...it almost killed me. I'm still mentoring for the marathon group; I go to the runs every Saturday morning just to wish everyone good luck, and then drive back home in my car where I do some yoga Luckily, about a week ago, I went to a holistic healing doctor and they found out I have parasites, goodness knows what from! I'm glad to finally know what's going on; I've been doing this parasite cleanse dealie and am already starting to feel a little better. I ran for the first time in a while a few days ago, and felt pretty good! Today I picked up some weights but barely made it through what used to be easy for me. It's frustrating to see how weak I've gotten! The end of 2010 seemed to be full of fitness roadblocks, and I'm hoping 2011 will totally rock to make up for it! Apparently it takes a while to get rid of parasites, but I'm doing my best and hope to do something amazing this year. I'm getting really excited about yoga; maybe getting sick is really a blessing in disguise! My boyfriend and I went to Hawaii this Thanksgiving to take a breather and rest while I was feeling icky. I included a pic of us at a Luau! How are you?

  3. hey...I haven't seen you post in a bit! If you're still visiting the forums here's a great article on Marzia Prince on why she's now 80 percent raw vegan 20 percent cooked...it basically resulted from burnout from comp diets...now she looks amazing and is a full time bikini and fitness model on a vegan diet! (her interview is on pg 32-33) http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/total-health/nov10virtual/2010102401/
  4. so most everyone agrees that a mostly raw diet is healthiest?

  7. I have to admit...I watched the video for the first time because I was interested in how you make delicious vegan food. The second time I watched was to listen to your accent again

  12. I guess I should caveat that with I'm not huge with the macro emphasis on grains. But it's just where I learned the general principles. Then my friend introduced me to doshas and I thought it was so interesting!
  13. obviously wiki isn't the end-all be-all resource but this is how I learned about the macro diet, and it seems to focus a lot on balancing yin and yang as far as foods go. I thought it was interesting. Whether or not you buy into the macro principles, I think everyone could use more balance with food and life in general. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macrobiotic_diet
  14. Thanks! I've been looking more into doshas, and I feel like I'm mostly vata with a little pitta in there. hmm...so much to read about...
