I want to start tomorrow with the 100 day raw challenge, but wanted to start with banana island. I've been on and off 80/10/10 since 2009.....aaaarrrrrggghh. Whenever I end up eating cooked food I have a HUGE belly, I have water retention and I gained 15 kilos since last year and I am sick of it. I really want to stay 100% 80/10/10, I even avoid "cooked" friends till I am stronger. I've had B12 deficiency, Lyme, celiac and a very difficult stressfull 2010, so enough reasons to stay raw for my health and I NEED YOUR HELP FOLKS :)))
So, tomorrow I am starting with banana Island (again) and bodyweight exercise 6times a week (bodyrock.tv). Anyone who will join me or has any tips/ideas? Thank you!

I've put my bananas in the fridge because all of the fuitflies over here.... it is no big deal if they overripe a lot faster, because I will be eating all of them within a week or so.... haha. I am feeling a bit like a gorilla, haha.
put them in the sun or put a couple of apples on the bananas.
Calculate how much kcals you will need, otherwise you will be eating cooked food again.
One box ripe bananas and one box unripe ones: very important!
Good luck :)))
I'm on my 4th day today :)))
it was really hard :)))

bananas: 3500 kcals
I feel ok emotionally. Still love the banana smoothies, they really taste great!

You are welcome!!! We are here to help each other ;)
If you feel tired and moody, may be it is a good idea to sit down and really feel the emotions and let them go. You can give you body rest for the weekend by resting a lot and reading. Don' t overdo with you workouts.... just listen to your body.
I didn' t do my exercises today, may be I will do rebounding in the evening if I feel so.
Hang on there.... :)))))
