I am a 39 year old female. I was in great shape at one time eating a high protein bodybuilder diet consisting of a lot of tuna and chicken. Since becoming a vegan about 10 years ago I have put on a lot of body fat. I am hoping that this lifestyle will enable me to get back to a healthy weight and to help me live in a healthy body for as long as possible.

I am interested in finding out what foods people on the East Coast of the United States (Virginia) eat on a daily basis since bananas and most fruits for that matter do not naturally occur here.

Hi Candy,

Welcome! Take a look at the Banana Welcome Wagon: http://www.30bananasaday.com/notes/All_aboard_the_Banana_Welcome_Wagon%21 for some really useful info.

As far as what folks on the east coast/Virginia eat, yes, most do eat bananas and any and all fruits they can get their hands on. I'm not sure about your point that most fruits don't grow where you live- Are you trying to only eat local produce? That would be extremely limiting for just about anyone who didn't actually reside in the tropics.

The fact that this is the best diet for our species means that we eat this way regardless of where we happen to live, just like any other species in nature, ie: lions are always carnivores, cows herbivores, etc.

Humans are by nature tropical creatures, but we have left the tropics and now live in every climate. However, we have always brought the tropics with us wherever we live in the guise of heating our homes, wearing clothes, shipping and storing food, etc.

So, in Virginia, you would likely eat bananas and fresh dates as your staple foods, augmenting with other fruits as they come into season. Surely you have access to melons this time of year, and as the warm weather progresses you should see peaches, nectarines, berries, etc.

Citrus is usually available year round, as are apples, pears, grapes, but most of these have been stored from the previous fall and winter, so they're not at their best- though of course you can eat these as well as tender leafy greens (which do grow in your neck of the woods :))

You say you've read Dr. Graham's book "The 80-10-10 Diet"- maybe take another look. Plenty of advice, information and menus there.
