30 Bananas a Day!

Do you ever feel it's a mission chowing all those calories? In my experience I require 4500cal of fruit per day. That is one heck of a lot of eating, even if it's bananas or smoothies, and it is time consuming.

 

To compensate, I have made a habit of really stuffing the fruit down; a few bites and it's swallowed. Fortunately this works quite well with fruit, specially the juicier types like papaya..yum.

 

I recently read "Mucusless Diet Healing System" by Eheret, and there is a large focus on eating less whilst eating slowly. I've read a few fruity's like Anne osborne advising to really savour and enjoy every bite...

 

It makes sense to me that savouring the bites absorbs the food with an energy of appreciation (on the wishy washy side) and it gives the body the ability to get every nutrient (on the physiological side).

But I can't eat 4500cal of fruit slowlyyyy!!! I'll never do anything but eat!

 

So what works best? Savouring the bites; or is it OK to stuff yourself quickly, long as those cals go in?

Very interesting topic.  I too find sometimes that I have to stuff in order to get the cals in but feel like I'd rather slow down and enjoy.  With dates for me it's easy to relax and just eat them anytime.  I find myself driving while eating bananas quite often(for me to go anywhere is at least 1/2 hour).  I've tried slowing down my slurpage of smoothies because I sometimes feel I am missing the sweet taste of it by drinking too fast.  

I guess one way is to just do 1-2 meals a day and prioritize a long time to sit, relax and enjoy.  But it may take some time to get your stomach ready for that much food at once.  I guess we were built to eat and sleep a lot but in today's world there are many more tasks on our plates.

Dr Graham/Rozi have produced a DVD "making friends with your food".  I don't have it, but it may help you.  I tend to savour; seems to me in a natural setting we wouldn't bolt food after the first couple of pieces, then you slow down and start to enjoy more.  Bolting/stuffing just doesn't feel right and causes wind.

Dr G tends to eat twice daily, lunch typically smoothies, dinner a sit-down meal of fruits followed by greens.  He says he spends under 1hr per day eating.
