30 Bananas a Day!

Hi there,

I recently moved to Hakuba (ski resort) in Japan and am really struggling to find fresh fruit and veg. I get paid around 5.50$ AUD an hour, 2 bananas here in the resort are $2 AUD, I have no car and the next city is too far for me to travel because of my work hours. I can afford rice and so far have been substituting 2000 calories that I usually would have for fruit, with rice (in the mornings for breakfast I still get around 500 calorie from fruit) is this ok? WIll I gain weight? I am sticking to 811 ratio but Im worried it is so out of balance. Any suggestions? Would porridge be better? Or even fruit juice (although its from concentrate)? Buying more fruit really isnt an option as the local restaurant give me there discarded fruit already and I still need money for rent etc. This situation is only until March, will I be ok getting 2000 calories a day on rice and some veg? Or should I restrict the calories?

Fruit in japan is really expensive. It's not optimal to eat like this, but its your back up plan so dont worry. Whenever you can get the fruit in, get it, but for now stick with rice or other cheap high carb/low fat vegan options.

How are potatoes in japan?

Potatoes I havent seen yet in the supermarket! Yes, only a backup plan but im afraid it will have ill consequences on my health. Looks like sticking to rice it is haha!

You won't gain weight and you don't have to restrict your calories. You'll still be eating better than 99.9% of the people. Do the best you can.
