"Potassium poisoning from bananas is impossible. You'd have to eat approx. 150-200 in 30 seconds to reach a dangerous level, assuming your stomach has that capacity. We eat a lot of bananas here, but not that many! ;)
Have a great day!
"Wow! That's so cool! And eating grapes for a few weeks wouldn't break my heart if I were in that situation ;)
Yeah, even if she goes through chemo, I believe she could at least switch her diet!
Thank you for your help! "

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I loved reading the Divergent series. Favorite movies are Gravity, Frozen, Avatar, and all the health ones like Forks over Knives, the infamous Earthlings (love/hate relationship.) I think there's one about soil too. Hungry for Change. They're really good and have changed my life! Art is a newfound passion of mine, and I've learned to release stress with it (instead of turning to comfort food!)
We recommend you purchase Freelee's ebook "Go fruit Yourself!". It is a must-read for newbies to the high carb raw vegan lifestyle.
Durianrider & Freelee started this site to bring together high carb, raw vegan and vegan lifestylists' across the Globe! 30bad is a high standard and high performance team! We're here to help you make our team! Let us know what high fruit assistance do you need?
I need a group who will support me. I'm pretty young for starting this lifestyle, still living with parents. They (and siblings) think I'm crazy! So I need people who don't think I'm crazy :) I'm also getting closer and closer to actual raw so I'm going to need tips if strange things happen while adjusting! I've fallen off the wagon before with just plain vegan so this time I start a new lifestyle, I want to do it right.
