30 Bananas a Day!

Hello to everyone!

I'm new to the raw food way and 80/10/10.  I have read the book and tried a week of doing fruits/vegetables before resuming the SAD.

I've been reading some about banana island and am wondering what your recommendations are for something like an "orange island"?  Are there certain considerations with teeth pain?  And, is it too acidic for island? 

Oranges are in season, and I'm drawn to them for the mental lift (liquid sunshine).

Also, from your personal experience, did you find it helpful to begin your raw food lifestyle with a mono fruit island?  (I'm kind of an all-or-nothing person!)

Or, a 2-fruit island?  (orange/banana)

I understand the island is not for weightloss; I'm just wondering if it's a good place to start.

Thanks for any opinions or advice - I very much appreciate it.

Just be careful you get enough calories! I couldn't do orange island, also if I eat mostly oranges for three days I start graving sweeter fruits too much.

Thank you for the input.  Already, a huge help.   (And, I hadn't seen that cool food-combining diagram.  It's the easiest-to-understand yet!)

Do people ever alternate fruit on mono fruit island?  Since the oranges and bananas don't "combine" - I'm wondering if I do one day of oranges, the other banana?  (probably a silly question) 

So far, no one has mentioned teeth.  I did all oranges for about 8 hours a few days ago, and I thought my teeth felt different.  (It might have just been in my head because of things I've heard.... tough on enamel, etc.?)

And, lastly with the island endeavors, are certain fruits better for certain things?  Is there a good link for this?

(For instance, it was helpful to hear that oranges aid in detoxing quickly.)

I cannot thank you enough for adding any of your thoughts/advice.

I'm also interested in this.

Hi Casey!

Thank you for all the great tips.  I'm so new to this (as you can probably tell) and am soaking up the information. 

Your analogy regarding chilling on one island vs paddling back-and-forth was fantastic.  That totally clicked with me.  And, you've eased my mind in terms of giving oranges a try (teeth/acidity,etc).  And, hellooo Vit C, aka "oranges," is right.   :-)

And, I'd recently purchased my first ever tube of fluoride-free toothpaste.  (I was so proud!)

My sincere appreciation to you for having taken the time to share your help.  Thank you a ton.


Thank you so much, Crystal, for your response.  It helps hearing your description. (motivating!!)

And, the fact that you went into it shortly after being full on raw is helpful too.  I've been kind of sputtering about.  Thanks again.
