I just found this quite new blog by a former 811 disciple. It's an open forum for raw vegans to post their problems with the diet, poor teeth, weight gain, depression, etc. The premise is that the 30Bad site makes it a point to delete any posts that make negative comments about the diet, while anyone (including Durianrider under some assumed monikers) can post whatever they want. The posters include vegans, vegetarians and some paleo peeps. Pretty amusing!

Nice. Inevitable :) when I was into raw veganism, I knew of another forum where any slightly opposing views were deleted --it was Alissa Cohen's forum. You were supposed to only write anything that fell into "fan of alissa" category. Most of the people on that forum just post about how hard it is to stay on the "diet"....kindof a clue that it isn't a good idea in the first place duh??? :) Alissa Cohen was/is as ignorant of nutrition as Durianrider. I am still friends with a lot of raw vegans on FB and although I've hidden most of them from my feed because they're so ridiculous, I noticed one in particular (initials B.E., location California) who had been doing it for a few months, and then was doing nutritional consulting. This is the level of blind leading the blind that there is in that community. They're still feeling good from initially going off standard american diet but know nothing about the big picture, and then literally charge other people for nutritional coaching. It's all so nuts. :)

I must say I've never seen anyone complain about the paleo diet whereas with vegans etc it's pretty easy to find
