30 Bananas a Day!

I recently switched to the LFRV diet from a whole-foods vegan diet. I have no issue following a LFRV diet, but I have no interest in mono-meals at all, and I'm not sure if I can ever get there. Of course, I felt that way about vegetarianism when I was omni, about veganism when I was vegetarian, and about LFRV when I was vegan.

The biggest differences that I notice between most LFRVs and myself is that I never do mono-meals and that I eat a lot more meals per day. It would be a huge struggle for me to change either of these. I love 4-fruit smoothies, Freelee's delicious 3-ingredient tiramisu, and huge salads with a variety of up to 10 different sweet and non-sweet fruits. I eat at least a half pound of greens per day, but even those are mixed greens most of the time. As for timing, I rarely go more than an hour without eating. I have an appetite but am not ravenous when I eat, and I feel satisfied but not stuffed when I'm done. I'm averaging 2000-3000 calories per day and am very active and athletic. How detrimental is it to differ from the rest of the LFRV world in these ways regarding mono-meals and number of meals per day?

As long as you are following proper food combining then you should have little problems eating several fruits/vegetables at once. Mono meals will give you the absolute best digestion and energy, but you aren't sacrificing much with a few other properly combined fruits.

Thanks for the input! My digestion has improved from a nightmare to nearly perfect through the course of omni-veg-vegan-LFRV, so it's not a huge concern of mine on this diet. I do need to learn about food combining, though. I have studied it a little while vegan, but I didn't realize it applied to different fruits and veggies. I'll definitely look into that. Thanks again! :)

There's no issues with eating multi fruit recipes. You're fine there.
But how do you find time to be active and athletic while eating every hour? Doing that would be a logistical nightmare for me.

For my morning workout, I am out of the house for 2 hours, but I eat right before I leave and right after I get back. For my evening workout, I am only gone out of the house for about 1.5 hours and do the same thing. The rest of the time, I average an hour or so between eating. If I am going to be gone somewhere for a while, I'll make a smoothie and take it in the car with me. :)

You only really need to worry about mono-mealing if you have a sensitive digestive system!  I think in time you'll get into it though, few LFRVs can resist a mango monomeal or the desire to eat a whole watermelon in one go ;)

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
