  1. Well that's it. It's a sad day when the only local fruit and vegetable shop closes down. They have been trading for fifteen years and get the vast majority of their stock locally. They sold a lot of flowers and seeds too but they seemed to mostly sell fruits and vegetables at a very reasonable price too. Okay if you wanted a mango in winter you were pretty screwed but that's not the point.

     

    Apparently local farmers markets and local produce shops just can't compete anymore. I don't see why either, I guess people are just lazy and only buy everything from the one cheap supermarket which is actually more expensive than local stuff, at least here. Hell, even the local farmers market that comes in gets the majority of their stuff from South Africa now because all the British farmers they tried sell their stuff to supermarkets or fast food places..

     

    It's depressing.. Also bad for my wallet as I'll HAVE to go to the local supermarkets now.. And they probably sell sub standard produce.

  2. Okay so I have a lot of questions that I post from time to time. I have been a vegan for a while but the raw aspect still confuses me from time to time.

     

    I heard that you only really need to eat a 75% raw diet to be considered a raw vegan (or eater in general), what are peoples thoughts on that?

     

    I still steam tofu/tempeh, sweet potatos, corn and things that need to be cooked.. I haven't got used to or succeeded sprouting yet..

     

    I wouldn't worry about it.

     

    Raw foods diets are not based on any kind of scientific research whatsoever.

     

    "Percent of diet raw" isn't even defined

     

    percentage of calories consumed?

    percentage of food weight consumed?

    percentage of food volume consumed?

    percentage of number of meals consumed?

     

    Take your pick, it isn't based on anything.

     

    Read reliable vegan nutrition information ( see my sig ), make sure you are getting everything you need regardless of wear it comes from and don't worry about what is raw.

     

    Not bad, I was going to be using it to cut a bit more fat while still working out.

  3. Still working on it haha !!

    But to get to how I looked in that photo above was about 2 years I guess.

     

    Nice (no homo hehehehe I kid I kid).

     

    I'm having to keep messing with things as my body just wants to store fat, my dads the same so I'm going raw in the new year.. Been planning and experimenting for a few weeks to see if I could do it. I can't say organic as I'm pretty much at the mercy of the supermarket / local farm shop's supply of whatever they have.

     

    Also, I don't think I could ever pose for photos, I'm amazingly hairy, I mean.. I'm like a slightly trimmed bear.

  5. Well I'm slowly making my way over to raw, slowly bit by bit as I really need to work out what foods I can and can't eat. May seem simple but I do eat sweet potatos, corn, peas and so on which usually need cooking (especially if frozen).

     

    While I work that out, I was wondering if there is anything in protein powders that wouldn't be considered raw.. What about oat powders and so on?

  6. Do you remember fairly recently the case about the beansprouts and the ecoli outbreak, basically the idiot growing them washed them with contaminated water all full of animal shit.. Perhaps since then they've stuck a warning just in case but I don't know mate, I can't see the problem with eating them raw if you just wash them thoroughly first.

     

    Never thought of that.. Yea it is typical for bigger supermarkets to say "boil the hell out of this, then it's not our fault if you get sick".

     

    I usually get all my vegetables from the local shop and local market that comes around each week. Yea it's grown in shit, but proper shit *chuckles* you know what I mean, it's grown on small local farms (Titchfield mostly), some in Southampton and some from South Africa (well you're not going to get everything locally.. Would so love it if I could).

     

    Oh yea, I was going to post this in another topic but I might as well now. I did pick some stuff up at Tesco since it was late and I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. I went to buy some apples, picked up some red ones and looked to see which they were. The label just said "apples".

     

    I went all the way down the line of about six or seven different apples and most of them just said "apples".. Sometimes adding "juicy" or some other stupid tag line.. What type of apples are they? Gala, Cox, Granny smith?! What!.. Why are you not telling me what apples I'm buying tesco..

  7. Well I picked up two packs of raw beansprouts from the supermarket.. Funny thing is the packet says "Do not eat raw".. Well I know a lot of raw people eat them without cooking them.. Soo.. are they the wrong kind? Do I have to get some specifically prepared

  8. Well there is something going on. I've managed to loose a bit more fat which means some measurements have dropped a little as muscle is slowly replacing fat.

     

    However, my upper arms (flexed) have grown by half an inch! Which I am currently enjoying

    Nice work

     

    Yea nothing every comes slowly for me, it's all in bursts or nothing >.>

     

    Tell you what though, trying to eat enough is a pain

  9. wtf?

     

    It's from a rather bad film called Space Mutiny.

     

    A show called Mystery Science Theater 3000 (a show where they sat down and watched bad films while making fun of them) did it and kept making up silly names for how buff Reb Brown was such as "Butch Deadlift" and "Big McLargeHuge"
