30 Bananas a Day!

Hi everyone,

Lately I have been feeling very discouraged by my husband, of whom I love and care for very much. We have been married for about a year. I have been on this lifestyle for 4-5 months so far and eat giant banana smoothies of 10 bananas.

My husband keeps on telling me that I'm never going to lose weight eating so much, and that I'm eating "way too much". Keep in mind though I exercise every other day moderate intensity (30 min plus) and eat around 3000+ calories of sugary fruits per day. I generally wake up very skinny then throughout the day fluid regains in my body from glucose/water, making my belly area look more swollen. I wake up like freakin ghandi though lol! I think he sees me right after I eat with my huge belly (I eat 3 times per day) and he thinks I look "a little fat today". I never really get encouraged by him to keep on eating fruits and veggies, in fact, he wants me to eat more brotein and fat, by eating dead animals. He is of course not a vegan. It is very upsetting when I get called "a little fat today" or something like that. I am only 139 lb 5 ft 8, so I am definitely not overweight. I have tried to tell him about my diet but he doesn't want to hear about it. He thinks it's crazy and thinks protein is optimal for weight loss (lol!).

What is your opinion on how I should deal with this? I love this lifestyle and feel great! I have never felt better and have so much energy. I REALLY REALLY want him to jump on the bandwagon with me but he is a hardcore meat eater and is a low carb paleo type right now (he is trying to lose weight). So pretty much we are totally opposites but I sincerely love him and you know what they say, opposites attract!

PS He HATES veggies and fruits and pretty much EVERYTHING healthy. I think he had bad experience in childhood with vegetables at least. Who can hate fruit? 

Thank you everyone!

I'd start with telling your chunky husband (a la the avatar photo) to down some Banana mylk to get his inaffectionate, neglectful a$$ in gear. How disgusting of him. Sorry you don't have a good supportive relationship partner, sweetie. We are here for you! PS- YOU ROCK!

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
