Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
(Swedish proverb)
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
(Sicilian proverb)
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
(Elbert Hubbard)
You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
(Laurence J. Peter)
Friends are family you choose for yourself.

An intelligent person, when investigating how much fruit is good/not for a human,
if sat face to face with someone like Richard Blackman,  would have only the following two options: either
1) accept the evident truth, or
2) decide to be in denial of it.
I tend to think of myself as intelligent. There is no way for me to hide from the facts. Thanks Richard! :)

Ever had something like this happen? To be precise, ever made something like this
happen? Under pressure, to please my kids, went out and had some pizza. Didn't even like it. Now, we are all experiencing the full-blown symptoms of cold - cough, sore throat, runny nose etc. I am asking myself, why would I eat something that I even didn't like? Why do I continue to repeat the pattern? I am intelligent, aren't I? Why do I choose to be in denial? What am I scared of?

Clearly, I have observed that fruit is my favourite food. I can't hide this self-evident fact. I really really love fruit. Juicy, sweet, creamy, all sorts. I can't think of a better meal than a bowlful of some delicious tropical fruit. No other stuff seems as appealing as this. My body clearly says "
Eat foods you love. Do not settle for anything less." Enough said.

Hey, you can listen to Richard here: I find what he has to say very close to my own thoughts indeed.

No-one will support me but me. No-one will care for me but me. No-one will love me but me. No-one will heal me but me.

Best things in life occur effortlessly. I am back to all-raw. I just can't stand being "high-raw" or "95% raw". I've been feeling that even a few pieces of some vegan stuff makes me feel dehydrated and aging. Funnily, when I try something, there is a struggle, but when I give up trying, things fall into place. So, I now just do what feels best. And, I am enjoying this immensly.

Whatever happenned to the 12-week transformation plan? Well, I got injured (herniated disc) and gave up, cause I couldn't exercise, I was so bad that I even resorted to taking painkillers (toxic stuff).  It would be easier to just go home and heal, but juggling my injury with my full-time lecturing-and-research job was too hard. I now prefer to avoid the painkillers.

The 12-week program is on my mind.
