30 Bananas a Day!

So this morning I had a green smoothie (3 bananas, 1 apple, about 10 dates, 1 stalk of celery, a handful of cornsalad, and half of a chinese cabbage, plus some chia seeds and some water). afterwards i just felt reaaally filled, but then i started having a stinging pain in my stomach when i stood or sat upright. does anyone have any idea why? i started having some signs of detox today because i "cheated" after two weeks of 100 percent raw food, i had a blocked nose, and yesterday i was a little more bloated than usual. i would appreciate some answers/ideas of this helpful community! :)

This is the best, I could find to this topic:

(In short: Don Bennet recommends to try chromium picolinate as a supplement. If your stomach pain goes away after a few weeks than you know, that it's because of this. There can also be other reasons (e.g. bad food combining), but for me, it helped. :)

thank you. actually it went away quite soon, maybe i am just not used to eating that much yet. but i'll check out the link and see how it's going the next few days.

It's normal, that it goes away quite soon. In your case I would also try whether getting more sleep and water before meals and paying attention to proper food combining helps, before taking the supplement. The more watery the fruit (e.g. water melon or grapes) the more likely it is that I get the stomach pain.

I still recommend to read the article. :)

Thanks again, and sleep might be it... From Sunday to Monday and Mo to Tu I usually don't get enough sleep, which I really have to change :/

Your smoothie sounds fine except the cabbage and chia.  Keep fruits and greens together and just drink your smoothies slower and if the pain persists try the chromium supplement : )  I get pain after many years on this lifestyle if I eat to fast.  Hope this helps.

You mean no chia seeds? And stress is of course a very important factor. I did have enough time I suppose, but I was still glancing at the clock all the time. Also, I believe that if it would've been weekend, I would've taken more time to drink it... thanks!

overts fats like chia seed in general do not combine well with sweet fruit.

I personally wouldn't blend any sort of cabbage/bok choy with my sweet fruit.  I could see that digesting badly.

Digestion in the morning is sometimes affected by what you had the day prior.  If you had some a lot of heavy foods like starches/nuts/meat/beans/ect. the day prior, there could be a bit of a "traffic jam" happening down there after eating a large smoothie.

Oh, that makes a lot of sense. Well, I cheated a bit the days before that day, so that might be it, because usually I don't get problems with such smoothies. Thanks for your advice. :)
