30 Bananas a Day!

So I have boxes full of dates and not really ANY other food so I've decided to just go 100% dates and water - Datorade for the next 7 days.  I'm going to aim for about 55-60 a day. Who wants to join me?

mama mia..enjoy


I did that for 3 days a couple months ago when I was in a similar situation. I did about 50ish a day and it was delish. 

I dont know if I would have felt "balanced" enough going 7 days, but please let us know how you feel!

What sort of dates do you have to be eating 50? We have been eating mostly zahidi datorade and I can eat up to 70 in one day easy!


For US folks wanting to stock up, best deal I've found is Shield's Dates. Right now they have 15 pounds of zahidi, bahri or khadrawi for $35. With shipping it comes out to $2.83 a pound.

Hi Lindsay,


How did you get the $35 price?  I looked online and it says the zahidi's are $41.50 for a 5lb box.  Did you call them and ask for something else/specific?  Please let me know since I'm trying to finding cheap wholesale dates right now in Cali (date ppl r out and bautista seems more expensive....course that was online price).  Thanks for any help.

I look forward to LIndsay's answer, too, but regarding Bautista, ask for at least a 15# box.  I typically get 2 of these for 30# total.  With S/H, this has come to under 3.60 per lb. 

looks like shield's beats that though. 

Go to the Promotions page and scroll down toward the bottom.
Awesome deal! Thanks for sharing :)

I get a mixed box from the date people in CA. Some of the dates are really big, some are smaller and dryer and remind me of buttered popcorn, and others are small, super moist gooey and way sweeter than rest.

50 comes out to about 3000 calories, which was plenty for me in the winter when I wasn't as active as the lovely spring.

If you want to eat 70, thats great,  more fruit fuel power to you! I am sure i would eat that many if I had been more active at this time.  

I'm eating californian medjools Lindsay :) They are quite large and about 60 calories each
i have been living on organic dates for the past few months coz bananas are still $16 a kilo :(   i just eat about 50 dates a day plus sometimes i have persimmons, pears, watermelons etc and salad with lotsa greens at night.  i blend the dates with water to make datorade :) delish <3
i wish i had some dates right now :(
