30 Bananas a Day!

I get around 8-9 hours of sleep per night and sometimes I wake starving D;

Energy is so low it's not even funny

Breakfast 9 medium bananas

Lunch: 800 calories of dates with a few cups of strawberries

Dinner:800 calories of potatoes

Preworkout (in the morning 3-4 times a week): one banana and 2 tablespoon of coconut sugar

Workouts: 45ish minutes of low impact running, biking, elliptical twice a week

50 minutes of yoga once a week

30 minutes of high intensity elliptical 

Plus 60 minutes of extremely light movement daily

Averaging around 2700 calories a day. Should I be eating more? How much more? I appreciate any suggestions. I have a great fear of gaining weight since I have already gained 40 pounds on this lifestyle and I'm looking to lose it and I don't wanna gain more. Help please!

How much water are you drinking? I know for me I can eat more bananas just as they are than in a smoothie because of the higher water content. And also, are you consuming any greens? You may be more hungry because your body is trying to get the Nutrients it needs? Try adding greens to smoothies and see if your meeting your requirements on cronometer. Hope this helps. ^^

Vegetables and water are key. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies causes cravings. So will an unhealthy gut. Whole pineapples and spotted bananas are good for the gut. Carrots, lettuce, cooked spinach, green beans, and broccoli have satiate me more than enough and i enjoy them. You might not be hitting enough protein... Try adding some legumes with your potato meal. Along with the greens, you should now be hitting enough protein.

And you need a little fat. At least 30g. avacado, almond butter, chia seeds, etc.

Thanks. I'm drinking like around a gallon. I eat at least one head of lettuce a day.

It sounds like you get 2500 to 2700 calories  a day.  2500 is just the bare minimum.  There are several women here who eat 4000 as their minimum, petite fit women who do about the same exercise as you.  If you are over weight you need to account for that and eat more.   This is a good list to go by...

A.  How do i know im not eating enough calories from fruit?

1. Other food starts to look and smell good.

2. Cooked food looks more then the second rate option it really is.
3. Your energy, power, strength start to go downhill.
4. Your attitude starts to suck. You just want to rip apart people and scream at them with frustration.
5. You start to question this whole raw gig.
6. You get cravings during the day and evening.
7. You start to rely on discipline to keep you raw.
8. You start to make raw pasta dishes, raw cakes etc.
9. You start to question if we really need to exercise.
10. Your so thin and weak that your athletic friends start to get concerned.
11. You start to question veganism.
12. You start blending maccadamias with dulse and spread it on 1inch thick flax crackers you made at 3am in the morning.
13. You wake up at night and steal your housemates fruit. If your housemate is called banana guns and he told you not to eat the papaya, and you did, you aint eating enough fruit cals.
14. You start to want to take fancy herbs and experiement with other diets.
15. Your actually eating pizza and reading this.
16. Youve got some Fred Bisci Enzymes in your pocket and your ready to try the 'all raw but 20% cooked rule'
17. You want to believe that Brian Clement is right when he says corn chips are better than fruit. 
18. You just paid aajonus vonderplanitz 400$ for a one hour consult and he told you to put an egg on a window edge for 50 days until its putrid and then to eat it. and you did it. you saw your dog eat some animal poo and you tried it too. ( true story i just heard).
19. You just cant sleep!! you are approaching insomniac.




Eat until you feel full of energy, sleep soundly and long, feel zoomingly happy and do not have cravings.

you need to get in the GREENS! eat 1-2 pounds of leafy greens a day, they fill in the nutritional gaps you may have been creating before and always help me feel more satiated and balanced. they also really help improve digestion! seriously, including lots of green vegetables and lettuce in my diet has helped me soooo much
