30 Bananas a Day!

OMG... I don't know what happened with my motivation and stuff, but at the moment I am sick of bananas... It is more than 2 months since trying to eat 80 10 10 (we still ate boiled potatoes and rice), and today I tried to get totally raw... Oh, and by the way - I kinda got hooked on garlic... and read about all the bad stuff it does only few days ago, so it's only a third day I stopped eating it. I hope this is not something irreversible, but today I really feel not so good... It's been like 3 nights in a row I don't sleep so good and today I got like 22 bananas blended in total and some salad (really, not so much - approximately 1/4 head of iceberg, some tomato, cucumber, yellow bell pepper and two stems of celery). Oh, and few dates in the morning. I don't know that to do - I need more calories, but I can't get any more fruit down my throat... Maybe it's only too little of greens I'm eating? Or is it still garlic intoxication talking? What should I do? I actually started doubting if I'll manage to go on this path... ;(

I think this is a common complaint in the beginning. I just started this in January but went thru similar times. Sometimes I eat simple low fat cooked vegan meal...but then I become quite thirsty and crave sweetness again. I think in time your body will naturally understand fruits are optimum and you will crave fruit when hungry. It can take time though. I bought a raw food cook book and tried a few new recipes, such as zucchini and tomato sauce which is more savory. Also there are many recipes for salsa on here too. Sometimes I consume a little less and take the time to enjoy what I am eating instead of stuffing it in for calories sake, when it is a duty you can get tired of it. Not sure if any of that helps---just keep trucking along!

Hi Kotryna. One thing to know is that 811 doesn't revolve around bananas. Many of us make them our staple food, partly because they're fairly caloricaly dense, but also because they're typically cheap, easy to blend, etc.. But, one can be 811 on a variety of fruit. In fact, many of us find it helpful to change things up and keep our diets interesting. Try getting giant watermelons and eating them with a spoon! Mmm... Try dates or dateorade to get the cals in. Try mangos if you can get them cheap enough. Look for deals on bulk fruits. Try knocking back freshly squeezed OJ in large quantities.

Main point: don't be afraid to branch out and try different fruits. There are hundreds of options out there :)

Also... try to keep your focus locked on the long term so you can better weather the little bumps along the road. Don't worry about the garlic, just move on. Don't stress about not getting enough cals, just start increasing the amount. Let the doubt wash off your shoulders and keep moving towards the long-term goal of optimal health. You'll get there.

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling this way Kotryna. :( As I am still getting to know this way of living, I'm afraid I can't give much - if any - help at the moment. Nevertheless, your body is possibly reacting that way due to the "bouncing back" on your eating. Perhaps you should try monomeals, especially fruits that you can handle at the moment.

Though I'm sure there are others here who can help you further and I hope they do. I wish you the best of luck!
