30 Bananas a Day!

I was told to eat them seperately. I thought fruits with some nuts or putting them both in a shake would be fine, but I guess it stops the sugar from going through the blood smoother and can cause hypoglycemic issues??? Anyways I heard to eat fruit alone and before meals.


Any extra info would be great. 

I've been adding more fat/protein to my diet, so I'm thinking of eating fruit early and then the fatty/protein foods for dinner?

Nuts take a long time to get digested whereas fruit gets metabolised immediatley. So when you eat the nuts and the fruit together-the fruits sit on top of the nuts waiting to get digested, this causes it to ferment which results in gas and bloating. 

As a result of this the next day you will sit for ages in the toilet waiting for something to happen.

harm to the pancreas over time?

Fats help us absorb nutrients, don't they? I like to eat seeds (sunflower and pumpkin) with almost every meal I eat. Even if it's just a teaspoon.

I remember when I was "transitioning" and eating a cantaloupe with a heaping tablespoon of tahini over it- and feeling like crap from combining fats with sugar and thinking that this diet doesn't work.

For many it has to do with keeping up good digestion. You have to experiment to see what works for your-- perhaps you can eat mangoes with fat, but not bananas. Or perhaps you can eat a small amount of fat with bananas, but not above a certain amount before your digestion is upset. As you continue on this diet, your connection with your body and digestion signals will become more fine-tuned, and you will be more comfortable making decisions that you know are right for your body. Just try it all and see what works for you!

Fats sludge up the blood inhibiting cells from uptaking oxygen, vitamins, minerals, and blood sugars.   So blood glucose levels will remain high thus stimulating chronic elevated insulin levels.  As another member mentioned, the pancreas can hypertrophy and eventually wear out risking type one and or type two diabetes if high fat habits continue.  Other risks include candida, low energy, chronic fatigue, a decrease in cell and tissue health, decrease in bone density, and possible decrease in muscle mass, and decrease in healthy brain tissue. 

If you are focusing on nuts, they fall under the category starchy food and or complex carbohydrate.  Read more about the problems of starchy foods here:

Starchy Foods vs Fruit n Lettuce

And as someone else mentioned, fats digest slowly.  Eating fruit on slowly digestion foods can lead to stomach upset, indigestion, gas, bloating, and fermentation.  

Nuts and other high protein foods also tend to be high in the irritating oxalate:

Oxalate Health Impact

If you do want to focus on protein, add more low fat lettuce greens to the diet which are nutrient dense, and lower in irritants like oxalate.
