30 Bananas a Day!

It took me one year to have my first fully raw day. And it was a total calorierestrictive day coz I was busy - I guess it was bout 1700 calories or so -.- but not on purpose.

Not because I don't love fruit enough, but because I love potatoes and rice too much and just couldn't have a day without cooked food, where I must say I think it's a bit addictive - but isn't everything good addictive? Like when you eat a super sweet orange and you end up eating 10 others for dinner instead of the cooked rice you made (or you just eat a cup of it later too because you just feel like :-D)

Today morning I smashed in 6 nectarines in bout 20 minutes. I feel awesome.

I remember how I initially struggled with eating 3 bananas. Today I drink a smoothie with 7-10 bananas. Not only that, I just realzied how much I deprived and starved myself coz I was constantly thinking about what I'll eat for the next meal - I was so obsessed with food and just now I understand why. Because I was calorierestricting all these years. I did gain weight but it's slowly comming off I think. At least I feel a bit slimmer (2kgs maybe). I can't remember when I last felt so great. Good digestion is something so precious omg. If I think about how I used to not go to the potty for 2 or even 3 days I'm shocked because nowadays I'm concerned if I don't go 3 times a day.

I don't think about what I'm going to eat next anymore, I just eat what's there. Now that summer is comming here in Switzerland, It's much easier to eat all the good fruit. Still it's hard to get pricy organic fruits but I do my best. I just feel for the first time of my life that my body starts to trust me again and knows how much it needs - even if that is not 3000 calories a day but after a long ride it automatically becomes this much - I think that's normal isn't it? Usually I'm around 2300-2700 a day

Anyways I just felt like sharing this and am curious what's your experience in this matter - it's good to realize that you're doing the right thing even if it took you an entire year to understand that .

I send you sunshine :-)

Glad you realized you how good it feels!

Thx - u felt that way too then?


I use to be like you, always thinking about what I would eat for the next meal, now I only bother to think about what I have in the fridge when I am hungry because with raw there is pretty much nothing to prepare. I started out doing smoothies but to be honest these days I am just to dam lazy to bother getting the blender dirty and having to wash it up, so I just eat Nanas - straight down the hatch and get on with what more important things. 

Thanks for sharing your experience.

How much are bananas per kg? Dates? Mangos?


In switzerland I pay 8 dollars a kg for my fave organic bananas. others are round 3 dollars per kg

Dates are 24 per kilo and organic

Mangos 3.50 if in supermarket (green and unripe and organic)

Super ripe ones for 6 and organic.

Cheapest are oranges for 2.60

It took me a while to do a fully raw day too! I was slowly adding more fruit into my day until it became easy to eat raw for breakfast and lunch until I read the 801010 book and I just took one of the daily recipes and I tried it. It felt so weird to eat that much fruit in one day but I felt awesome and I remember I slept way better. I usually do about 2 full raw days a week and the other days are raw till 4 cause I think rice and curry is the shit! I've been spending a ton of money on fruit too so I am trying to get up to LA to the wholesale produce market so that I can buy in bulk and start saving some money!

Love the post!

God Scott, U can't imagine how bad I wanted to go to America/LA.

I do wish to live where fruit falls off the tree but sadly it's not that easy.
I could go to Brazil (I have two passports) but lifequality is worse than where I live I mean - everyone wants to live in Switzerland the only thing that doesn't make it perfect is the fruitquality. And if you have a stable job, giving that up is a big sacrifice since my life is very happy here. But I'm coming for 3 months in 2017 to the US yaaaaay:-D

If I could have better organic fruit I'd be fully raw but I just can't so I stick to organic pasta, potatoes and rice and that's yummy too n healther than any animalproduct.
