Hi I'm Freddie, new to this lifestyle looking to see if there is any groups in and around Cambridge, looking for tips and guidance.

Thanks Freddie.

Anyone interested in buying my Yonanas machine for £30 posted? Makes banana ice cream.

Cost £50 new. W/ original box & receipt. Only had it a couple months, used maybe a dozen times, still in perfect condition, works great. I've just been given a twister jar for my blendtec so the Yonanas is kinda surplus to requirements.

If any south-east Londoners here, I'd like to know where do you get your banana boxes cheapest and most convenient. Thanks :)

Honest to goodness, there is on in Hoylake and one in Heswall. Where in Wirral are you Laney? I'm in Moreton :) x

Does anyone know any good vegan shops on the Wirral?

You can find cheap boxes of bananas at Liverpool Wholesale Fruit market http://youtu.be/eaYvl8rjOvY

Go to Total Produce, ask for Phil Magee - he's the banana man and will sort you out. I usually phone in the morning (about 4/5am) before I go to ask if he has cheap boxes (£3-£8 for 18kg) and he will keep some aside. 0151 220 1826

If you do go, tell him Jennifer (he also knows me as the banana girl!) says hi :)

@Elsara N

Manchester wholesale market is worth visiting, check out these two videos.



Bananas are cheaper in Aldi and Asda compared to Sainsbury's/Waitrose, but if you go to a wholesale market you can expect to pay as little as 30p/kg.

There is a meetup group you can join in Manchester - http://www.meetup.com/Raw-Vegan-Manchester/

My partner and I are fully raw (he helped me get off my cooked food addiction and I have been raw for over 5 months now), he is willing to help anyone become fully raw and he lives in Hyde (Manchester) so if you need help his channel is the first video I posted, contact him for information :)

I would trust what your body says and don't overload on calories. If you feel satiated with 1500 cals then don't eat anymore, but you will learn what is best for you. Send me a message here if you would like further help :)

Thank you Nathan, your information has really helped. I guess if I go by needing 14kg of bananas a week and they're currently 79p/kg at Sainsburys/Waitrose that's £11.06 a week which I can deal with until I can strike up a deal somewhere! Just gotta hope they have enough in stock.
The conveyer belt of bananas is a great idea - One I will surely steal!

The daily calories are actually something I kinda need help with. I'm hoping to slim down a little but I wouldn't say I was 'trying to lose weight' and I aim to do an hour of aerobic exercise a day which burns approx. 200 calories but I’m not totally sure.
I read the 80/10/10 book by Dr Doug and it states there to go by the approx rule of 'weight in lb x 10 to maintain body weight + 10% for metabolism+ calories burned by exercise', for me this would be approximately 1520 (120lb*10+120+200) however I keep reading everywhere to eat 2500. I know not to restrict, so if I’m hungry I will eat but in terms of an initial goal or aim is 1520 incorrect?
