30 Bananas a Day!

So whilst I go on a mission of vengeful fury to the oncologists office I need some dietary advice.

I can have very limited fruit so I will be snacking on it spread out during the day and also before meals whilst my bowels recover.

I figure I really have to be closer to McDougall style. I'm going to have heaps of leafy greens and vegetables as usual and all raw. I might have to have brown rice, oats, quinoa, buckwheat pasta, baked potatoes etc for carbs. Obviously all low fat as possible of course.

Any help and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Read Eat to Live. It's an exemplary way to eat, and I think a very good option for those who struggle to stay 80-10-10. I follow this way of eating when I am traveling or cannot access enough fruit because of my current lifestyle.

I've actually got the book buy hadn't read it yet. Interesting how he says high calorie intake shortens life and recommends only 1500-2000 per day! But nonetheless looking at the meal plans is very good!

Can you tell me where you saw that calorie count? I've always seen him say no-calorie-counting. I don't think 1500-2000 is adequate.

What were your symptons of fructose intolerance?  

About 20 minutes after eating fruit, that is the time it takes to digest in the stomach, I empty my bowels completely. Lots of water comes out. It is agitating.

I've tested not eating fruit and then having some. Works like clockwork.

It is also a confirmed side effect of chemo.

If you tolerate sweet potatoes, they have a really awesome nutritional profile, and they're actually pretty low in fructose for how sweet they are.  And winter squash has a little more fructose but is still really low compared to fruit and yet digests easily for most people (it's technically a fruit after all.)  Good luck!
