30 Bananas a Day!

Have you manipulated the nutritional targets at all? 

I just downloaded cronometer and changed the macro-nutrient targets to 80/10/10 but I haven't changed anything else. Is there anything else you guys have changed to make the program more lfrv friendly?

Hey Adam, I asked Dr. D the same thing about spinach because there seems to be differing opinions out there about the oxalic acid in spinach in the 1 lb. that we're supposed to get and he said that he doesn't see it as a problem. Because I was eating a large spinach salad every night.
For peace of mind now, i just alternate my greens through the week. I was eating the spinach every night for the iron and calcium, but other greens are great too.

On the sodium tip, swiss chard is great for sodium.

Hey Tom,

Oxalic acid can be an issue if consumed in large amounts regularly, but how large I am not sure. With spinach it depends alot on whether its baby spinach, or large leaf spinach. Baby spinach has lower oxalate levels. Throughout January I consumed 720g spinach (1.5lbs?) every day without exception, without a problem. Though before that I never liked the taste and have now gone off it again. I think as with all things, variety is important and if you are getting a variety of greens in your diet, it wont be an issue at all.

As for sodium, I think that there are plenty of other sources than celery. Honeydew melon, cantaloupe melon, piel de sapo melon, galia melons are all reasonable sources of sodium. chard is probably the highest source of sodium that i can think of, much higher than celery.

Take care

I think there is debate over whether oxalic acid is an issue in raw spinach versus cooked spinach.

Thank you so much for this incredibly detailed and valuable post, Adam. Your posts are always of excellent quality.
This is Cronometer related - apologies if I should have started a new thread.

As dates and bananas are currently the bulk of my calorie intake I wanted to be sure that I'm getting the correct reading for medjool dates from Cronometer. It doesn't state if the medjool dates are dried, fresh, soaked, pitted, unpitted. It shows 277 cals for 100g. So should I be weighing them soaked or dried? I'm assuming that like the peels, the stones of fruit are never included in the weight either?
If they are the typical dried variety you buy in the store, weigh them dry. Medjools are about 60-70 calories each.
Thanks, I'll do that. Nutitiondata.com didn't mention either if they were dried or not but I imagine most dates people are buying from stores would be the dried variety. So I weigh them dry but without the stone - correct?
Yes, without the stone. You should figure each medjoool date is about 18-22 grams, without the stone.
what are the macro nutrient targets for 811?
10-80-10 (protein-carb-fat) ... : )

Something kind of cool.  I managed to stumble across the online version of Cron-O-Meter.  It's at cronometer.com


I know this post is kind of old to be resurrecting, but in case anyone is looking for some help with the tracking end of things, having an online version may be easier for some.  They also have apps for Android and iPhone.


When signing up, they actually ask you what macronutrient profile you want to pick, and the 10-80-10 is already in there with a (30bananasaday.com) beside it :)

I am using the online Cron-o-meter site and with the 10/80/10 profile but still needed to adjust minimums of some nutrients based on Adam's suggestions above.

Thanks for this information, Adam. I would love more of this kind of information on this site (and if I have missed it, please direct me to it :) )
