30 Bananas a Day!

I have been doing this for at least 4 months, with some fully raw days here and there, and so far loving it.
I had my thyroid out in December and even though I am a very active person, the weight is slowly creeping on.
I am more concerned with my health than I am about my weight, as I also suffer from a lot of intestinal problems, and some days still have a lot of trouble and pain, I am truly hoping that this lifestyle cures me of these issues.
Anyway, my real question is this:
I have around 1800 cals or more of fruit during the day, then have a cooked dinner of around 600 cals.
I am worried that maybe my cooked calories is too high.
Any thoughts on this? I often feel very bloated after dinner and even though I keep it simple, and am literally NEVER hungry when I wake up.
I drink at least 4 litres of water a day.
I am thinking of experimenting with cutting down the dinner calories and adding more raw.
Keep in mind, I say 'around' because some days I eat a lot more fruit and a lot more dinner.

Thanks Liv :)

When you say you got your thyroid checked do you mean there is an issue there. I have thyroid issues too and I started this lifestyle about 2 months ago. I am hungrier on some days more so than others. I can easily knock back 4000 calories on high carb vegan food if I feel I need to, especially around that time of the month but usually I average out to about 2500 calories. Don't worry about the calories. Eat when you feel you need to. You might gain a little weight in the beginning but it is not permanent. Only eat more raw food if you feel you want to. I keep telling myself in the beginning of the week to eat all raw food but when I get to my "start date" I just don't want to. I think you will continue to stay on the wagon if you eat what you feel like eating that day whether it is raw or cooked.

Skylei, I had to have my thyroid removed. It grew huge and was choking me, and was all behind my breastbone too. So I am on permanent thyroid replacement.
I have trouble with my stomach being enormous from the minute I wake up, everything I eat makes it worse.
I have no intention of getting off the wagon, I will find a way to make this lifestyle work for me.
I know I am on the right path, but have had a lot of trouble with my intestines for maybe the last 3 years, it's awful. I wonder if it's IBS, or just my body hating me for years of mistreatment.

Depends on what cooked calories you're eating I'd say. If it's low fat/ whole foods then 600 calories is nothing! A lot of veg actually digests much better when cooked. 

thanks Crapa,

I eat rice and veggies, or corn pasta with a fat free tomato sauce, or potatoes that have been steamed and oven baked etc.

No added fat or salt :)
