30 Bananas a Day!

  I can't enjoy a regular banana anymore!  I have to force them down me so I get enough fruits for the day!  Bananas used to be my favorite fruit!  Now I get scared eating them!  Bananas make me sick, not where I get a really upset stomach and through them up, but where I just get an acidic stomach feeling!  The only way I could enjoy them is by making them with smoothies, but I had to add some almond milk or some fats to enjoy them!  I stopped that because I know that's not good, but how can I get my body to enjoy them again!  I eat other fruits too, it's just it's easier getting enough calories by having bananas as my main fruit!

  Would anyone know why I get sick from bananas and what I can do, so I'll enjoy them again?

  Thanks have a fruitful day!

Maybe you're not letting them get ripe enough. When they're ripe, they're usually really easy to digest, but until then they're a bit starchy. Let them get a bit freckled with brown spots and start to smell sweet, and try them at that stage. Good luck!
Thanks for your help! I thought I was waiting long enough because they do have brown spots on them, not like it's really ripe, but some on them and you can smell the sweetness on them where they don't smell green! I'm not having problems digesting them either! So I don't know maybe their just starting to ripen and just aren't ripe enough! Thanks again for your help!
Thanks, I'll remember that! I've been raw for the past 11 years, but I've been back and forth. I've had a hard time getting enough fruit in me because the bananas started making me sick! Thanks for your help, I hope your right!
Thanks because I was wondering about that! I'm having a hard time ripening my bananas right now! In order for me to get them to ripen good I have to have them in the living room! Our kitchen is right by a door to the back yard we use to let our dogs out and if the bananas are in the kitchen during this time of year they won't ripen! I'm buying alot more bananas now then when I did during the summer to try to have enough bananas ripe for me in advance and it's hard!! The bananas I've been eating look like they're ripe, smell like they're ripe, but don't taste like it!
Would you have any tips for me on ripening my bananas? Thanks for your help!
Thanks, I have a space heater and maybe I can get some paper bags at walmart!
What about organic vs freetrade vs conventional?

I hear you about ripening. I don't have a house heater, only a space heater next to my desk in the work room.

The good thing about slow ripening bananas is they don't go bad before you finish them. But, now I need two boxes ripening at different stages while eating the third.

  Your right!  It's easier eating them before they go bad during the winter!  During the summer I have to by them more often so I don't buy too much at one time!  If I buy the same amount during the summer as I do during the winter about half of them I would be putting in the trash!  I found out how to get my bananas ripe now!  I'm taking my bananas up stairs in my house, they ripen over night that way!  I'm doing great now!!! 

Thanks for everyone's support and help!!!

you can't, because you've upped your standard, you'll just have to upgrade to less sugary fruits, like coconut water, grapefruit (which is an acid fruit so i dunno). or better yet alkaline leafy greens. which means no sugar rush, which means no sickness or acidification.

  Thanks for your info!  It's just hard finding other fruits during the winter that tastes good!  Where I live, I don't have much to choose from!  The fruits around here are mostly picked to early and they don't ripen too good!  So I might have to find some I can afford to order!  Anyway it's just hard getting enough fruit carbs in me eating fruits like that as my main fruits!  That's why I stick to mostly banansas!  Another thing I have to watch is I have hypoglycemia and bananas help me with that!  If I don't get enough fruit carbs then my blood sugar drops too low and I can have mild seizures if I don't watch it!  So I just make alot of smoothies with bananas and spinach!  It helps cut down on the sweetness for me!  Thanks for your help and have a great day!

I've experienced the same with bananas and my wholesaler has said bananas do not ripen well in the cold.  I make sure I drink water before I have a banana smoothie and also adding lemon or lime juice gives them a more pleasant taste. I'm having a break from bananas at the mo and have replaced them with very ripe persimons, which are delicious blended with medjool dates and fairly high in calories.  Good to vary things up.
