30 Bananas a Day!

I've just gone vegetarian recently (a month ago), and I am currently trying to go raw till 4 vegan. I've been feeling really groggy at times, and have had little energy. Sometimes I get so emotional that I feel like crying, and I'm very sensitive.

I eat a 4-banana smoothie with berries every morning and usually a low fat meal for lunch and dinner (essentially I am currently raw till 12 or 2pm, but it's a start). Can anyone tell me what things they have personally done to help ease the detox, or foods/meals that made them feel better during the beginning of a raw till 4 vegan lifestyle?

I started experimenting with the raw til 4 diet actually right after thanksgiving last year.  i went six days straight raw just to try it out.  Yes i experienced the flu like symptoms the 1st few days when i thought that i got hit by a truck.  I was trying every smoothie under the sun to find out what i could drink at work everyday and be happy drinking it.  My energy levels were really no different at the time.  I should note that i had already started at a weight loss of 35-40 lbs over the past year or so.  So I was not starting from a bad health standpoint.  Also I lost that weight basically from eliminating dairy and gluten from my diet.  It worked wonders and i never calorie restricted.  Becoming a vegetarian was the final step and over the last month vegan.  Now for the last few weeks, I have been hardcore sticking to the raw til 4 lifestyle and finally loving it.  Food wise, I'm bananas for bananas! I always liked them but I honestly think that i have eaten more bananas over the past 6 months than i did in whole life before.  Half of my calories a day come from bananas either as mono meals or in smoothies.  Nutritional speaking, they are close to being the perfect food and very affordable on top of that.  I also think that eating rice and potatoes as your base after 4 food is important to feel satisfied that you actually ate something.  I believe DR has stated that vegs should never be your base as many people fall prey to with different types of diets out there.  They are too low in calories and without the adds/salad dressings, they just not satisfying.  I use the cronometer daily and enter everything possible and my weight everyday.  I keep on experimenting with different foods to see how it affects my energy, if i get bloating or not, if it made me gain or lose weight and also am i consistently getting my daily vitamins and minerals from that days food.  I'm only low on vitamin D but it does not count into if i was outside for any period of time that day.  Over on fiber normally and vitamin A.

Thanks a bunch, Vincent! I'll probably start tracking the food I eat and the emotions I feel.
