Starting today, I am going to try for 5 days on banana island!
I'm still pretty new to HCRV and I love my smoothies, but I think it is time for me to get back to the basics and just eat some fruit! (And I plan on supplementing with lettuce.)
Here are my bananas for the workday - I think this will get me through the day, if I need more I will make sure to bring more tomorrow! I am very excited ^_^
Hi Katy! I will be starting banana island as well! My bananas are not ripe at all right now, they're like light green and some yellow, so will probably be ready in a few days, depending on how they ripen. I am so excited! I have been RT4 for about 8 months but want to give my body a cleanse and to speed up my healing process. I have been struggling at a hiatus lately with no ability to lose fat/water unless I calorie restrict, which I DO NOT want to do whatsoever. I am not going on this BI for weight loss though, but maybe some water loss would be good. I do better and feel better on raw, so maybe after BI I will stick to raw, who knows!
I am going to be eating only bananas, nothing else, though I will be eating a LOT of them, lol. (around 30 a day). It will help my body focus on healing rather than digesting something else with the fruit. I will of course not stick with BI for too long, as I do not want to become mineral deficient. (maybe will do BI for 2 weeks).
Want to be BI buddies Katy? It would be awesome to encourage each other on our progress and how we feel!
Those bananas look delish btw!
It sounds like we are at similar places in our healing. I started RT4 back in January and thought that BI would be very beneficial since I have a lot of healing to do.
I would love a BI Buddy!
I bought a case of bananas on Friday and some of them are just now ripe enough to start eating today.
... I should probably go ahead and get another case today so they can ripen while I eat on this case.
HIi,Hannah! Im new to this lifestyle,only have became vegan for 11days now, today is my second day on BI, and planning be on BI for 30days, i would like join your as BI buddies. encourage&help each other !
Gorgeous bananas Katy!! :)
I'm so happy for you and your five day banana island adventure!! Please share your progress!!
Thanks, I am very excited!
I will post tomorrow with an update. ^_^
I wanted to ask... when you supplement with lettuce, do you eat the lettuce between your banana meals? :)
Good Luck to you!! you're gonna do great!!!
I use crisp romaine as a snacky thing in between meals usually. Sometimes you need that satisfying crunch, right?
So last night, my final meal for Day 2, I didn't plan ahead well enough. I found myself starving and without any bananas. So I stopped at Chipotle to grab a quick vegan burrito. Well, it made me so sick to my stomach and gassy. I am thinking that it wasn't very vegan. Anyway, lesson learned. Today I feel much better and I might have over packed bananas around with me today. ^_^
