  1. Haven't been on here in over a year and a half. Just an update on what I'm up to: I've gone from an 80/10/10 purist to more of a modified 811 approach. Still have between 2500-3000 calories from fruit and raw greens each day, but now I do include some cooked vegan food typically at night. Some legumes, some grains, different root veggies and different cooked veggies. Its working pretty well for me the past few months and I've put on about 12 lbs of muscle. If I go back to distance running I'll probably go back to strict 811, but I'm happy with my modified approach for bulking.
  2. Hey powermi, on the second page of this thread there's a screen capture of a pretty typical day for me. Cellar Yeti, I was consistently around 50 miles a week last summer which broke down to 5 days a week of 8-12 miles. RC, thanks for the inspiration and encouragement!
  3. I've been 80/10/10 raw vegan for 1.5 years and have had no issues greatly increasing my fitness and well being. Feel free to ask me any questions.
  4. I'm 80/10/10 raw vegan. Let me know if you have any ?'s.
  5. Hey Dallas, I actually don't lift, though I would like to start this year. The gains in my chest and shoulders came exclusively from body weight exercises. I just started adding weight to dips and pullups, can do between 10-12 of each with 60lbs added.
  6. HorseSense is correct. I take a methylcobalamin b12 sublingual a couple times a week.
  7. Hey HorseSense, that was about a year ago. These days I'm more in the 60-70 grams a day range.
  8. Thanks everyone! I haven't been on here in a while. To update, I was focusing on distance running from spring until November. I've taken December off. Going to start bulking back up and re-comitting to 100% raw ( I've been about 90% the past few months) I'm going to experiment with bringing my % of fat calories up to 20% on certain days. I really thrived doing 80/10/10 for a year, and now I'm going to try very small tweaks and log the results.
  9. Go to "file" then "edit nutritional targets". I set my ratios for 86/7/7 and put my calorie minimum to 3000. I took vit b12 and D out of the equation, and also dropped the sodium requirement to half rda.
  10. Here is a snapshot of what i'll be eating today. I highly recommend cron-o-meter, it's free.
  11. Thank you! While I was in Florida I was actually closer to 90/5/5 and I loved the way I felt. Best runs of my life. I've stopped all oils. Still do some hemp seeds and a brazil nut a couple times a week. I've bumped up my calories to 4000+ on workout days. Lots of bananas and citrus. I'm torn, I really like running with my current physique, but i'm also curious about how much I can bulk up. We'll see what happens!
  12. Hey Horse, went to florida for a couple months and only did cardio. Leaned up a bit. I'm ready to put some bulk on this spring!
  13. Seriously leaned up after 2+ months of just cardio. I'm pretty happy with how ripped I am but I need to put on some bulk so that I don't need to flex to look tough haha.
  14. Here's a tricep shot. I havent had more than 50 grams of protein in a day for ages and my body is really responding. Yes, I'm naked.
  15. @ fallen_horse I have a few friends that are professional raw chefs, but my method is more of a just throw whatever I have into the vitamix, and hope its not disgusting. I usually add half a cup of water and the juice of two lemons. I'm sure I'll eventually go back to trying to make things taste as good as possible, but right now I like the simplicity of not caring. My fruit meals always taste good, so if my one salad meal is not so great, I'm still enjoying most of what I eat every day.
  16. Those 3 alone would be a little bland. I would probably throw in a couple dates, or some carrot, red pepper, lemon and a little garlic. Today i went crazy and used cucumber, brocoli, red pepper, celery, avocado, lemon, garlic, carrot, dates and I even splurged with a little sea salt. Blend for a minute in the vitamix and toss with a chopped up head of letuce. Its different every day. Sometimes i just use a little raw hemp or olive oil and a little lemon. The cashew based ones are my favorite, but i try to limit those to once a week.
  17. typical menu/day now is 16 ounces of water upon rising. Do some rebounding for 10-15 minutes. Maybe an hour after that i'll start nursing a huge green smoothie comprised of 3-4 bananas, cup of blueberries, a half cup of goji berries, a few stalks of kale pulled off from the stem and a tablespoon of hemp seeds. After about an hour of digesting i'll do more rebounding before I start whatever workout I'm doing. Post workout is a similar smoothie, usually with a little maca and maybe a little raw hemp powder instead of seeds. An hour later I will have a completely massive green salad with some sort of home made dressing, like cucumber, celery and a little avocado pureed together. Last meal of the day will be purely fruit, whatever is as fresh as possible. I'll have a handfull of nuts a few times a weeks, and every once in a while I'll make a cashew based dressing for my salad.
  18. Thanks! I've found a fair amount of criticism on this forum regarding 80/10/10, but it seems to be working pretty good for me. I think sucking it up and finally getting a basic bench is the next step.
  19. Hey all, this is my first post and I'm super excited to have this kind of resource! I've been mostly raw for several months now (vegan for a decade) and I just started transitioning from an endurance training into more of a complete body buildup. These pics were taken a couple months ago, after only a month of minor lifting, with lots of push ups and pull ups. I'm really increasing the free weights now, and I'll take a couple better pics after I get some much needed sun in a couple weeks haha.
