30 Bananas a Day!


Ok so I thought it would be a good idea to just have banana blogs here. (it would be awesome and helpful for newbies to see everyone's blogs under one roof, if that makes sense? :-)
We have another thread going here which has lots of island details....Please post your questions there and put a link to your question here so we can get to it and not interrupt the flow of the blogs too much, ofcourse commenting & supporting eachother on the island is encouraged!


This island most are going to has only bananas on it, for some it will have 2 fruits (like for myself banana and date) Some will have banana and greens also.  SO there are a few variations and that's why I'm requesting everyone record exactly what they eat because their results will vary depending on this. Please keep your island selection to a maximum of 2 fruits or 1 fruit & greens.


Arrive Monday 12th April, return 28th April 
(although if trip is going very well may extend)
Others may be already on the Island, we can meet them there...

Things to do on the island: (apart from lots of relaxation)

Record a daily blog on your experience here including how many bananas/or dates you have daily, water intake, exercise, sleep, sunshine and feelings...
Then we can really help eachother if some of us are undereating or dehydrated etc.

Ok awesome so fire away my island friends!

P.S- Please can we agree to keep the comments that aren't specifically direct comments of support to other islanders off this thread? Like questions about the island etc? That way we can just have lots of blogs and support, thanks! Other comments and ongoing conversations can be put here..

ooh nicely done on the cals Michaela. You did a really good job :-)
Sleep well tonight x
Cool thanks for posting Lighty :)

What a brilliant gratitude list, I can tell you really thought about it. I haven't read that one of Essie's book yet, sounds great.
Day# 2
Food: I had around 15 banana's during daytime, grapes. In the evening 12 fresh dates with 5 large handfulls of spinach, blended with water. One hour after that, I felt my teethache diminisch and euphoric. I had never done this before but got the idea through reading a thread on this forum. I think the sugar is getting the minerals where they need to be.
I'm going to repeat this today Day# 3. :-) But more sweet fruit if I can find it.
Just for breakfast now I had a smoothie with 10 banana's + 10 dates and spinach. :-)
Oh and yeah, 3 liters of water every day, sometimes more. Slept very well last night. Cycled for one hour.
Very grateful for the wonderful people at this forum and the sunshine.
Hey fruitilicious :)
Great to hear your teeth are feeling better, you felt euphoric! That is fantastic! I felt that today too.
Nice bit of cycling also, ill be on the bike tomorrow.
