Best dates EVER!
that address doesn't work...do you have another?
It just gets boring and unnerving to eat dates and bananas all the time, and I mean: ALL THE TIME, 24/7. And, frankly, it cannot possibly be healthy to restrict the main caloric sources to two fruit. Furthermore, when you have 10 months of "winter" in terms of soil temperature regarding the needs of oranges and mangos, you are in an area where oranges and mangos cost so much that most people would have to fast for 1-2 weeks a months in order to eat lfrv the rest of the time.
It's not necessarily about excuses as all the cool kids suggest ;)
You can always buy frozen mango, strawberries, etc... frozen fruit is better than no fruit, and certainly better than little to no variety. :)
I agree that just dates and bananas gets... exhausting. I'm in Canada, just a couple weeks ago I was stuck with no ripe fruit... ANYWHERE in my town and the 3 others next to me. But all stores carry frozen fruit and fruit juices. As well, in desperate financial times... there's always other carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes and rice.
There are ways to find variety and ensure caloric needs are met... seek and you shall find!! :)

That is the reason why I eat some cooked food (I try not to get over 10%), a minimum of variety is fundamental. The following day to a cooked dinner I really crave bananas or dates again. will see when I have many different sweet fruits in Mexico if I crave in any moment cooked food.
Thats a good weight for an elite cyclist/marathoner. What is your 10k pb arpit? Id expect around 40 mins. If you cant run that fast at that weight, you got at that weight via failure to thrive vs chowing down mega calories and training smart. Does that make sense?
That makes sense to me. Although if she's eating 5k-6k calories, that also seems mega to me. :)
Can a 5'2 woman run marathons and ultras with a smile? I'm starting to train to run a marathon november 2012. Just wondering how painful it will be. I see that so many runners are tall (read, long legged animals...)
