30 Bananas a Day!

Hey everyone,

I know this isn't a lovely subject but I've been on the 80/10/10 diet for almost a week now and I'm experiencing constipation and painful bloating, is this normal for a beginner? I know some people talk about detox symptoms when there are just getting started, could this be to do with that? Will it go away after a while? Is there anything I can do to help it go away? Thanks for your help!

Yes, it's a common detox symptom. Are you drinking enough water ? It can help.

Oh phew cheers mate. Yeah I drink 3+ litres a day. Thanks again.

I've been on the diet/lifestyle for little over a week, too, and I, literally, feel your pain....much discomfort.I've read, although bananas have lots of super nutrients and tons of fiber, they can move either way for people. Look into food combining and take Freelee's. advice - fruit is the Queen of foods, so she likes to travel along the digestive route by herself. If you eat your veggie meal first and then fruit second your risking digestive discomfort.
45 minutes on the bike,three liters of water, two heads of lettuce( after many whole bananas and dates) and I was good to go! :)

Oh thanks, that's great advice! Hope your discomfort eases up!

finish your last meal by 5 pm or as early as you can to allow a digestive rest  each evening  for best digestion 

assuming you hit your calorie target  

Ok I'll definitely start doing that! Cheers mate!

I've been transitioning for a while, here's a couple tips in addition to everyone else's which are great

What reliance said about the bananas is true. See how many bananas you can handle and SLUG the water down when you're eating a lot of bananas. I can now eat about 15 bananas a day without problems.

People with weak digestion can't handle that much fiber, so yeah, the water thing again.

Datorade is the breakfast of champions. High water-date ratio, and use good dates, please! Mix it up, some people (myself included) can't jump right into banana island. So eat some variety.

Hope that helps. Love, Brad

Ok that makes sense. Thanks for the tips and no that is not my real name. I love Fight Club so that's why I chose that screen-name. It's the greatest movie of all time. Closely followed by Kill Bill Vol. 1&2 and Pulp Fiction but that's neither here nor there. Sorry I get sidetracked when talking about movies. Thanks again for the help.

is that your real name btw? lol

Make sure your bananas are REALLY ripe! Starchy bananas just don't seem to move through me very well, but I am okay with perfectly ripe ones.

worse than cooked starches? just wondering

Oh ok that could be it. The bananas I've been having were not as ripe as they could have been. Cheers for the tip.
