30 Bananas a Day!

After my first day without any 'slip ups' and after a week of eating about 80-90% raw I am really starting to notice a difference in my energy levels. However, last night I felt so 'wired' and almost like I was vibrating with energy. I couldn't sleep! it was really weird. Is this normal? or part of the 'detox' period?

 

Thanks!

Hi Clementine - I had this a few times my first weeks on raw. Pretty cool, eh? I remember running for two hours, hiking a little, doing yoga, and still buzzing. Don't worry, it mellows out after a little while (but be warned, you will still have a lot of energy. might have to pick up a few new hobbies :)
I've noticed I've been getting a LOT done lately - it's crazy! my whole house is clean! :)
Thanks, totally going to read this when I get home :D

I'm having this problem right now.  Normally I would be asleep right now but I spent all day outside digging dirt and after trying to fall asleep for over an hour I finally realized that it wasn't going to happen so I got back up and ate 9 more bananas.

 

I had already eaten 54 during the day, so now I've eaten 63 for the day.  Hopefully I will fall asleep in an hour or two, because if I can't fall asleep soon I may just have to break Durianriders 72 banana record later today.  Fair warning Durianrider.  I'm giving you 2 hours notice.

 

This problem always happens when I workout a lot harder than normal and don't eat a lot more than normal as well.  Hopefully I will learn from this so I don't have to go through it anymore.  I agree Clementine that it is probably due to not eating enough calories to compensate for your high activity.  Your body needs fuel and is going to try to stay awake until it gets it.  It might feel good at first, but in the long run not getting enough sleep combined with not getting enough calories is going to cause more problems than you or anyone else should have to deal with. 

I agree with you, but I'm actually not that active to need tons of calories. I'm only about 5'3 and I work a desk job. I can't physically eat much more without vomiting....I tried to break the 1,500 threshold and ended up throwing up all my fruit for the afternoon :( It was just too much.

 

I admire those of you that can eat that many bananas....I know I'll never be able to do so! lol

Smash my record Jared and it would be fun if you put it on youtube somehow. I beleive you but we need more vids of other people showing how much fuel the body enjoys.
Approx 1,500 calories a day. I work a desk job, so any more simply adds to my waistline. I'm not very active besides yoga.
Sounds boring. Dont you want to live your life passion? Eat more to live more.
Sounds like your under eating on carbs.

I didn't sleep for a whole month last summer when I started going raw and low fat for the first time.

back then i was detoxing a lot and I wasn't sure how to count calories correctly either.

I thought it was all the energy from the new diet. I felt very hyper during the day so I figured, I'm so full of energy I can't sleep at night !   I treated it as a funny consequence of my change of diet and I put up with it no problem but now that everyone here mentioned being low on carbs,  I definitely have to think that's what it was !!

Now that i eat plenty of bananas, dates and mangoes etc i sleep like a log and back when i was a happy high-fat vegan eating lots of refined cakes etc, I never had problems sleeping either...

So yes, the undereating on carbs make SO much sense... Eye opening..   So eat up Clementine !! :D
