I went on a 'five day fruit fast' vacation in Miami, that was to consist of only fruit and water, for five days.  I cheated with three cups of coffee, as I was getting tired driving (700 miles).   I think I can do this.  I ate bananas, peaches, apples, mango, papaya, one avocado, squash, zuccini, tomatos, green pepper, I just found out that Bok Choy is bitter raw, or did I get some 'bad choy'?

Is it normal to get 'cravings' or 'think' I have cravings for cereal/grains?  I am starting to see the value and intelligence in going raw.  Maybe I am 'retraining' myself?

Is chronometer a lot different than FitDay? Because I don't get how people are coming up with such high calorie requirements. I am 5'5" and not active. My recommended daily calories (and this is pretty similar on all "calorie requirement calculators" online that I have tried all tell me about 1400. That is a long shot off of the 3000 so many people on here are talking about. I am curious as to why people here are aiming for so many calories? Does a person need more when just consuming raw fruits and veggies? I have actually heard the opposite, since you are getting more nutrients in the foods eaten in this form.

As for the apple thing - I have to say that I LOVE apples. For me they are important though because I live in freezing cold British Columbia, Canada, and we get about 3 weeks of warm weather a year - not enough to get much more tropical type fruits, and when we do get them in the summer, they can be really expensive.

Just started using Chronometer.  What an eye opener.  Just finished my lunch and only achieved 34% of my target.  I'm just not eating enough fruit and all the while I thought I was eating too much.  This is a great tool.

For breakfast today I had 5 mangos. That is ca 1000 calories. My plan is to eate much calories in the start of the day. And a big sallad in the eavning with mabye an avokado-tomato dressing at the eavning. My calorie intake of the day, around 3000-3500. What do you think of that people?? :D need support :)

I agree with you Don...I grew up in Texas with the "apple a day" saying and used to love them. I now live in Mexico with an abundance of tropical fruits almost year-round and I rarely eat apples. I will, on occations, chop them and add them with greens in a salad.

Can I juice my greens? I don't much care for eating salads, or at least I haven't found a way I enjoy yet. I really liked ceasar salads before this.
