30 Bananas a Day!

I just noticed this.

When my breakfast consists of bananas and dates, I seem to be hungrier through out the day. If I only eat my bananas and dates towards later in the day, I'll be hungry after that. The kind of ravenous hunger where my tummy makes noise and I find it hard to concentrate.

But when my breakfast (or meal) is made of oranges or grapefruits, it seems the same effect doesn't happen; I feel full, but not like I'm going to explode, and the feeling lasts a few hours before hunger comes again.

I would probably note that my banana/dates meal has 2x the calories of my oranges or grapefruit meals.

Does this make sense? Is this normal? Should I drop the bananas/dates? Or eat less of them? I much prefer the sweet over the acid/sour, but it's hard for me to concentrate on other things if I have the sweet.

Get out of your head and into your heart.

Get enough fruit cals, get the early nights, drink the water and STORM your life each day. :)

Is it possible the dates are cooked? If I eat cooked dates I get so hungry afterwards, but raw ones fill me up for hours. Also, when I used to eat really acidic oranges they kind of messed with my digestion so i would not feel like eating afterwards cos my stomach was tense from the acidity, even though my energy was low and I needed more food. Sugary sweet fruit is the way to go for sure :)

Try adding greens to your dates/bananas, and drink a LOT of water with them. And if you make sure you're getting 3% fat and 3% protein (at MINIMUM) daily, the cravings should vanish. :) Worked for me, at least? Let me know how it goes for you!

 

Personally, I think the water is key, if you seem fine after the oranges.

thats the perfect senario!! if eating banana make you hungry you cant complain about not getting your cals in .. eat more bananas
