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?

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

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.

I know - it's pretty bad. I just have such a fear of calories that it is hard, but with so much encouragement from people like you and inspiration from people like Freelea, and DR, Dan McDonald, Dara Dubinet, among others, I think I'll be able to get through this. I think I am going to start by allowing myself to eat a little more cooked vegetables for a while while I kick the things like cereal and soy milk. Then once I feel stable there, will taper down on the cooked veg. Right now I usually have about one bowl of home made soup with cooked broccoli and sometimes beets each day, but in the past few days I have also had some cooked spaghetti squash, and sweet potato. I always get so mad at myself for eating these things, but I think that if I make peace with the fact that they are just going to help me in transitioning off the more processed things (even though I only 'cave in' for them once every few weeks) I will feel much better.

Jeez, Nicolette, 1300 is a starvation diet, even if you're not exercising a lot.  You are actually fasting not eating.  That explains your thinness and starvation before bed...and of course if you're painfully hungry, you're not going to sleep as well.  Dear, you need to add about 500 more cals/day at least throughout the day...that's 5 more pieces of fruit for you!  When you increase your exercise after feeling more energized, you can add a few hundred more.  With fruit, you don't have to restrict...or even really worry about the cals.  Just eat until you're satisfied.  Learn to communicate better w/your body.  I highly recommended bodymind work for you...yoga, tai chi, massage, Thai...it will help you have a better friendship between mind and body, and a greater awareness of how you feel and what you need.  You'll even start to crave foods with the specific nutrients you're lacking...try to be patient.  One step at a time.  Breathe!

haha I love it! "EAT MO CAWWBS." It's funny to think that even before I got into this lifestyle and learning about all the benefits of lfrv etc, I always knew that carbs were the best thing for my body to run off of. Of course, I was chosing all the wrong sources, but even in the SAD, if one componant is gonna trump the rest, the grains are gonna beat the fats and proteins!!

The tomato story is inspiring.  GMO maters were REJECTED by consumers, so they stopped GMOing them.  That means we can do it again for other produce.  However, greed sniffs out new opportunity, like a dog looking for a place to piss or crap.  "They" got more insidious and started GMOing food they can HIDE in other food, like corn and soy products, sugarcane, beets.  Now, "they" are targeting rice...one of the world's biggest commodities...and probably hoping the Asians simply don't notice or care.  Evil always finds a way to spread...wherever there is weakness, i.e., ignorance.  Shine the light!  Bear the torch!  Shine on, you crazy diamonds!
