30 Bananas a Day!

So it's day 1 and I'm already having a difficult time... I guess when my bananas get ripe I'll have a lot easier of a time.  I've got them in a paper bag right now with the hopes that they will be good to go tomorrow.  Also, need to buy more bananas tomorrow to get those started in the ripening process.  This is going to take a lot of getting used to!!
This is what my cronometer looks like so far:
24 oz water upon rising 8:30 am
Breakfast (9am) - 4 pears - 290 calories
Snack - 11:00 am - 5 medjool dates (100 g) - 277 calories
~12 oz. water - 11:30 am
Lunch - 12:30 pm - Smoothie with 230 g Strawberries, 200 g Raspberries, 2 ripe/frozen bananas - 388 calories
Snack - 3 pm - 5 medjool dates (100 g) - 277 calories
Pre-dinner fruit at 5:40 pm - 2 pears - 171 calories with 4 dates (50 g) - 141 calories
Dinner - 6:30 pm - 8 oz. Romaine lettuce (38 calories) with 1/2 cucumber topping and dressing of 2 stalks celery, 1/2 cucumber, 2 dates, 1 cup fresh orange juice and 1 tomato.
This puts me at basically 1700 calories which I know is not enough.  It's been almost an hour since I've eaten dinner and find myself hungry already which maybe is thirst?  Going to drink another 24 oz of water now. I find myself hungry a lot in-between these meals and find myself wondering how I am going to do this when I am working.  My job does not allow for much down time.  I'm constantly moving, working on patients, helping with surgies, etc.  I guess I could one minute here or there to eat a banana a couple times during the morning but from 8-12 I'm pretty busy.  I don't know if this is the best way - to just snack when I have time?  On my normal SAD days, I'd eat breakfast at 7:30 am and be starving at 10:00 am but couldn't eat lunch until 12 pm which I believe is why I went for fast food a lot so I could just eat and make the hunger go away.
I peed like a racehorse from ~8-1 pm - literally at least 6 times in that frame which I don't know if it's normal?  I'm looking forward to peeing all night now from this additional water I'm going to drink.
I also attempted to go for a bikeride this morning.  Let me just say that I was truly disappointed in myself and how out of shape I've become.  I made it basically 3 minutes (literally) before I had to turn around and go home (and mind you this is me going at a normal/non-fast pace to start out slowly).  My asthma started up basically right when I started riding and my heart rate began racing - was 140 beats per minute when I got home.  I am ashamed at how out of shape I am.  It's very eye-opening at what I've done to myself.  It's upsetting.

OK, I know I am late to this by a day or so.  

What I recommend focusing on first is  your nutrition to help rebuild, repair, and detox your body.  Give yourself anywhere from a week to a month before adding in a strenuous exercise program.  If possible, at least in the beginning, schedule your drinking and meals.  Drink about 2-4 cups of water about 30 minutes before a meal, and then not again until about 1-2 hours after a meal.  This will aid your stomach in fully digesting your foods and not getting diluted with water.  

The plumbing will work itself out.  While what shell says about going 10 times is healthy, you will both get used this, and your plumbing and muscle will stretch out and get stronger.  

Start out with 2 quarts of water a day, and then go from there.  If you are thirsty, drink, if your urine is not clear, drink.  

Regarding Asthma:

A common trigger of ashtma on a fruitarian diet is high oxalate foods.  High oxalate foods include animal products, dairy products, grains, tubers and potatoes, legumes and beans, most nuts and seeds, most cooked foods, teas, coffees, chocolate, and most cruciferous veggies like kale and spinach.  You mentioned eating cucumber and celery which according to some opinions are high oxalate foods, and in the very least, cucumbers give many of our members indigestion.  

30BaD FADs: Oxalate Health Impact - 30 Bananas a Day!

The focus on this diet should be whole raw fruits, with about 1/2-2 pounds of lettuce greens as you are able to eat them, and about a handful of nuts a day.  

If you are having digestive issues in the beginning, try a fruit or banana island for a few days.  After that, eat simple meals of about 1-3 items per meal, but a rainbow of fruits over a period of time.  

Dates are great as a snack food, or perhaps for one meal a day, but should not be the staple of the diet as they have 0 vitamin C.  Supplement date days with lettuce and oranges.  

Good luck and Peace, PK

Peeing with vigor 10 times per 24 hours is your target goal to know objectively if you are well hydrated, up to 15 times is fine.  If you get enough water from fruit to do that then great but most people will need to drink water.  Your activity level, sweating, surrounding temperature, humidity in the air, etc. will cause variation in how much water you need to consume.

I tried searching on these forums about the water issue... Lots of messages but no definitive answer that i can find: some people say  you need to drink a lot, first thing in the day and before meals; some say that this diet is based on high fiber high water fruits so we don't need to drink much additional water. So where is the truth ???

Concerning your shape, maybe you could follow Zuzana Light (http://www.facebook.com/ZuzkaLight) for example ? You'll only need about 15 minutes a day and you'll get in shape in no time.

Stick with the High calorie fruits  and skip the greens for a week or so until your stomach stretches and you get used to eating more volume.  Many people bring banana smoothies and/or datorade to work.  They store well in the frig and are quick to consume with no mess to deal with.
