30 Bananas a Day!

Lately i've observed that cronometer gives you very different readings depending on the way you measure your fruit.

For example, i just ate 7 navel oranges that weighed 2kg and according to that, i got around 1000 calories.

However if i enter the fruit (7) i get closer to 700 calories.

And i started noticing that the same pattern applies to most fruit! The per unit carb output is different that the per weight one.

Which one do you use? should i weigh the whole fruit or peel it?

It doesn't seem like much but in a whole day we may be talking of a thousand calorie difference or more, which is quite a lot!

I think i'll take your advice in a few more months, once i have settled on the diet for good. I'm only six months in this time through and i feel im still educating my body instincts.

thanks though!

anyone else care to share how you measure your food?

peel it! remove the seeds too. The edible portion is what you should be weighing and inputting into cronometer. That is what it is designed to take. The readings will be much more even then :)

Don't listen to Ezd0g. You could end up starving and falling off the bandwagon, lol. It's hard to get enough calories (ie nutrients/energy) in the beginning. <3 hope this helps!

Yeah, I second that. Like two days ago I ate ten bananas, and when I weighed the peels, I realised that ten bananas were only 300 cals. Thing is: it didn't feel like 300 cals, but like so much more (I mean, hey, ten bananas).
Easiest way to track cals is to eliminate all or most of the unedible parts before weighing fruit. For oranges, I just peel them all then and weigh them. Bananas are best fresh out of the peel, so I weigh all the bananas, eat, then weigh all the peels and substract. Etc. pp.

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
