30 Bananas a Day!

So I went to two of Tim's talks at the Woodstock Fruit Festival. I had a good impression of him. Very fit, friendly guy, very good speaker. In one of his talks he explained that he tried the 801010 way, but didn't feel optimal. He said he couldn't afford it as well. Currently he's eating a green smoothie in the morning (kale, bananas, berries, dates), fruits during the day and a huge salad in the evening (plus an avocado and some olive oil) (he even apologized for the olive oil, but he said he just likes the taste). No fruits in the evening, because it made him to jittery.

 

He guesses his carb/fat/protein ratios are approximately 70/20/10 on average, his caloric intake between 2000 and 2500. He also made the interesting observation that people just don't need all the sugar from the fruits- it will just be excreted from the body (I believe he said through urination, might be mistaken). 

 

He's running quite a bit daily, up to 2 hours a day, and winning a lot of competitions. So he seems to be doing quite well on his approach. My wife has ordered me to try his way, since it would mean we would save quite a bit of money on groceries! 

 

Any thoughts about his approach?

Yes, I was a bit surprised about the depression part as well. One incredible benefit I experience with 811, is that it is impossible to feel depressed.

Btw, It was great to meet you in person Freelee and Harley!

Dutchie! I can't match up username with anyone I met. I'm sorry can you remind me when we met?

 

I can honestly say that the only time I get even slightly depressed is when I'm not looking after my basic needs, particularly the big ones - enough carbs, sleep and water. On a side not (If I remember correctly) Tim said he has trouble sleeping which is a classic sign someone isn't eating enough calories, particularly carbs. The brain keeps us active in order to find more calories. Fasters are notoriously bad sleepers.

I was the dutch guy with the two kids at woodstock. You managed to convince me to join one of your classes when you were one person short....
oh yeh dutchie! haha I didn't know that was you. I wish you came and hung out with more. Next time :) Thanks for joining my class too! Saved my butt.
how did it save your butt? im curious
because we had odd numbers and I was doing partner work

On a side not (If I remember correctly) Tim said he has trouble sleeping which is a classic sign someone isn't eating enough calories, particularly carbs.

 

If you are refering to the interview with DTM he said he was sleeping better/deeper if he had a protein/fatty meal in the evening and gave an explanation of why he think that is so.

Freelee.....another thing he said in his video with Dan is that he eats fat later in the day, and he admitted that fat does make him more sluggish, but he wants to get to sleep at night and not be buzzing around so that is one of the reasons that he does it.   Obviously, that could be affecting his sleep.
That's just an honest observation........and insightful.

An alarm bell rung for me when Tim said that he wakes up most mornings and doesn't want to live because he is so depressed.

 

Did he say this in one of his talk and was he talking in present tense or past tense? I saw the lifegenerator vid in which he talked about experiencing deep depression in the past but I interpreted it as he had overcome this now?

past and present tense.

I see

 

do you have any idea of approximately when the videos from the lectures will be available in full?
