30 Bananas a Day!

Had some down time earlier today so I went back to DR's CTFU, and it reminded me of his recommendation of 10g of carbs per kg of body weight.

I'm beginning to notice that my body may have metabolic damage without ever consciously calorie-restricting, as I never hit even 2000 cals unless I'm tracking on Cronometer all day long, and for the first time in my life the weight is slowly creeping up.

At the moment, I'm sitting at around 60kg - so if I break it down into meals it's about 200g per meal (600g/day)... after calculating today's food, not only were my calories severely low (unintentionally), but the carbs barely hit 250g. I guess it's time to start tracking my intake again!

Does anyone know where this recommendation comes from?
Do any of you follow this guideline pretty consistently and have any feedback?

Any tips for getting a lot of calories in with very little time to sit down and eat?

Hmm.. I don't know if I've ever had a Kent mango.

We have a ton of Altaufo's where I life right now, I could definitely island on them but it's hard to figure out how much they contain calorie-wise. I suppose I'd have to weigh them?

Thanks ednshell :)

ya weighing the actual amount you are going to consume is the most accurate but on average Ataulfo mangoes are 110 calories each.

PS - Thanks so much for sending Eli's daily routine. Very inspirational and a great reminder that I need to start shifting to earlier nights and earlier mornings :)

Yes early nights does make a big difference in energy and mood and overall health, it helps regulate hormones.
