30 Bananas a Day!

I've been 100% low fat raw vegan for 2 months. I haven't had cravings too badly until recently. It's taking a lot of will power to stick to the lifestyle. I eat a fruit smoothie meal or breakfast and lunch. I am always stuffed so I know I am eating enough. My stomach has had enough time to stretch and adjust to the volume of fruit. I wasn't eating enough veggies/greens, and I started getting bad cravings so over the last 3 days I have been eating them. I eat a 5oz package of spinach or romaine a day, and one day I had a mix of a bit of greens, zucchini, cucumber, and celery. Does anyone have any quick tips to resolve this? I know I'm eating enough calories and just started upping my veggies, but I'm coming very close to caving and need help to stay on track!!!!! What would you do or have you done?

How many calories are you eating?  You can eat a watermelon and feel full so this is not a good way to judge if you are eating enough.  Using http://cronometer.com/ is almost essential for success.

 

A few tips here from Aloha to 30BaD's Welcome Wagon! ...

 
A.  How do i know im not eating enough calories from fruit?
1. Cooked food starts to look and smell good.
2. Cooked food looks more then the toxic, second rate slop it really is.
3. Your energy, power, strength start to go downhill.
4. Your attitude starts to suck. You just want to rip apart people and scream at them with frustration.
5. You start to question this whole raw gig.
6. You get cravings during the day and evening.
7. You start to rely on discipline to keep you raw.
8. You start to make raw pasta dishes, raw cakes etc.
9. You start to question if we really need to exercise.
10. Your so thin and weak that your athletic friends start to get concerned.
11. You start to question veganism.
12. You start blending maccadamias with dulse and spread it on 1inch thick flax crackers you made at 3am in the morning.
13. You wake up at night and steal your housemates fruit. If your housemate is called banana guns and he told you not to eat the papaya, and you did, you aint eating enough fruit cals.
14. You start to want to take fancy herbs and experiement with other diets.
15. Your actually eating cooked food and reading this.
16. Youve got some Fred Bisci Enzymes in your pocket and your ready to try the 'all raw but 20% cooked rule'
17. You want to believe that Brian Clement is right when he says corn chips are better than fruit. 
18. You just paid aajonus vonderplanitz 400$ for a one hour consult and he told you to put an egg on a window edge for 50 days until its putrid and then to eat it. and you did it. you saw your dog eat some animal poo and you tried it too. ( true story i just heard).
19. You just cant sleep!! you are approaching insomniac.

5oz is not anywhere near enough greens IMO.  I need at least 12oz a day to keep me satisfied.  If greens are too expensive then buy whole heads of lettuce.  By the sounds of it you are buying pre-washed stuff which is just a massive waste of money.  It only takes 5 minutes to wash a head of lettuce and chop it up.
