30 Bananas a Day!

Did my cronometer for the first time in a while... 10096 calories! Does anyone else eat that many?

I haven't used cronometer in a long time so I thought I'd fill mine in for yesterdays food... 10,096 calories! I am amused because I didn't even eat huge meals or anything!

My day was like this:

Woke up & had a litre of water and a litre of pineapple juice and 20 lovely big medjool dates as a pre-run snack

After my run I had a smoothie with 5 bananas and 5 tablespoons of coconut sugar and some water

Then I walked my dog and snacked on 20 dates whilst walking

Then I had...I suppose breakfast? 10 persimmons and a litre of pineapple juice

I drank a litre of orange juice before lunch

My lunch was a smoothie with 5 bananas and 5 tablespoons of coconut sugar and 30 dates (not in the smoothie)

Then I didn't really eat dinner apart from 20 dates and a small apple

It's crazy how it all adds up! It just seems like a really high number (not that I'm complaining) So, does anyone else consume this many calories?

10K kCal? Wowzers... Well, I guess it's OK if you ran a cross-country marathon, but since you consume this much  (in more or less the same variety) every day... :-/ 

Just discard the processed "foods" and cut the date amount by 2/3 (i.e. no coconut sugar and juice & don't exceed 30 dates a day MAX). Do this for about 2-3 weeks and see how your body responds. You can always take a look at my uploaded photos on here for an idea of what I eat on a daily basis (keep in mind I am a HCLF vegan, consuming cooked foods, as well. Similar to 'Raw till 4' I guess...)

Clearly you are overdoing it, as (unless you run cross-country every single day) all of these calories have to be going somewhere and my worry is that they are going in facilitating lipogenesis. 

What's your height/weight ratio & your muscle/body fat ratio? How much do you exercise on a daily basis?

She wrote earlier she was 5'5" and 115 lb. She runs 5 miles a day.


It won't let me post, just keeps showing the first 3 letters of my post?

Woah, I would be DRASTICALLY cutting my calories if I did that! I eat similar amounts of calories each day but I do eat variety, depends what's in season. I really don't think I'd be able to live my lifestyle if I cut my calories down so drastically. I answered the questions regarding exercise and weight etc in the previous posts :) I guess maybe I could try restricting my calories as an experiment when I don't have anything to do

It was a suggestion, based on scientific data on AVERAGE human intake. Two points have to be mentioned:
1. No two individuals within a population (let alone species) are the same, so talking about 'average' is difficult in that respect. In other words, you - as a stand-alone example of yourself could actually NEED all of those calories. 
2. However, working under the assumption that your body (as a unit of systems) NEEDS every single one of those calories, I would be mildly concerned about what internal processes they were being used in. Obviously, answering that question to the fullest is somewhat of a medical impossibility, but you could get a vague idea from a certified nutritionist or a medic (my strong recommendation would be to try and find vegan ones - maybe contacting them online even). 

Having said that, I would once again like to say this - I am not advocating calorie restriction, but simply getting to know your own body ("on the inside"). 

I hope this helps.
