So, based on your article Don, I am getting enough calories at 1300... (I am definitely not active enough)

Christy, I would also add that if you do feel the need to supplement to NEVER supplement blind. Get a blood test and see IF you're lacking anything at all first. Don't guess. But I would take Don B's advice on eating a variety of fruits first over some powder or pill. The fresher the better and more alive and more nutrients! And have fun with this! Eating isn't a chore; it's fun! :-)

Thanks for all your wisdom Don. I appreciate it :)

Also, I'm thinking that if money is the issue, you would still be better off buying a few other fruits to eat each day as oposed to any supplements. Try doing your bulk with bananas and salads, but add in maybe a few pieces of other fruits too.Look for sales and you can get some good deals. For example, apples, at least where I live are in peak season, and I just saw a flyer add for 45 cents/lb (where a typical price for this apple is about $1.30/lb)

Also, just for clarification... when people talk about banana "island" or other fruit "islands" on this site, does that just mean that that is the only thing you are eating for a period of time? I can't seem to find where the term is explained... is it an Australian term?

Christy

I think you will die from boredom not lack of nutrients, banana island is a lonely place beyond a few days ;-) Hopefully you can find some reasonable melon $5 watermelon goes a looonng way

i have a question, i have not a lot of money, so if i eat only bananas and a salad am i getting enough nutrients even though im not changing up my fruits. Should i take a supplement?

ahah AMEN to that VeganPheonix!!
Comment by PhoenixWay on October 8, 2011 at 9:29am
Good for you.  I understand "getting mad" but it doesn't help, does it really?  Learning to be healtheir is about learning to love ourselves more, which includes patience, kindness, and forgiveness.  MO CAWWBS!  MO LUVVV!!!

Oh, and your advice to 'be patient' is VERY GOOD. I think when I try to push myself too hard too fast, I am not as efficient in the long run at achieving my goals.

Vegan Rice & Veggie Dinner

Vegan rice and fresh veggie dinners are one of my favorites! I usually fix between one to two cups of rice, add lettuce, tomatoes, whatever vegetables I have...
