30 Bananas a Day!

I try to follow raw till 4 as much as possible but I find myself getting bored or craving cooked food, like for breakfast I love fruit but sometimes by lunch all I really fancy is something warm or hearty, do you think this is because of the colder weather, should I give into my craving, I think it is also partly because I bring in grapes for lunch most days and I am starting to get sick of them?

         Here's my two cents. I tried going straight raw vegan, and I kept craving cooked food. I would deny myself, and then I would eat anything and everything including non-vegan. Personally, I recommend cutting your losses short and just eating cooked vegan, that way you don't binge on non-vegan.

        Of course, I don't know you that well so take my advice with a grain of pink salt.

        "I think it is also partly because I bring in grapes for lunch most days and I am starting to get sick of them?"

           Don't eat the same thing every day lol. That's a sure way to get fail. Add some other raw fruit. Try other kinds of grapes. I like the cotton candy grapes.

Hey! Are you getting enough calories for lunch eating grapes? That may be one reason why you are not satsfied at lunch. I've found it difficult to fill up on grapes. You need to eat a LOT of them and something about them just doesn't fill me up like mangos, bananas and dates. 

I'm craving cooked food a lot more now too. I also think it has to do with it being cold and wintery now. My body just wants warm starches at night. I just don't care anymore. It's not fun to beat myself up everyday and feel crazy because I can't bare to eat salads every night for dinner. Let's just love ourselves more and make it through the winter happy!

make sure you are eating enough calories. track it on cronometer.com and make sure you are getting AT LEAST 3,000 calories a day, more if you are engaging in physically or mentally taxing activities. 

Mix up the foods you eat. eat bananas, oranges, dates, and other fruits that are cheap and easy to get right now. 

If you REALLY want to stay raw, then whenever you crave cooked food, just eat more fruit and the craving will go away. If you don't mind going off the Raw Till 4 thing a little bit, then just eat some low-fat, low-salt vegan cooked food whenever you get a craving. 

Here is a post from the frequently asked questions post to help motivate you.

A.  How do i know im not eating enough calories from fruit?
1. Other food starts to look and smell good.
2. Cooked food looks more then the second rate option 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.

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 pizza 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.
