I'm no newbie to a raw vegan lifestyle - but I'm new to the hig carb fruity lifestyle and after 10 days on the island, I'm loving it. I eat intuitively, whenever I feel hungry and I am eating about 90 percent fruit, mostly bananas. When I went raw the first time in Oct. 2010, I did the Ann Wigmore Diet with about 6 cups of sprouts a day (mostly blended into green energy soup) and 3 to six shots of wheatgrass daily. I did an enema at night and in the morning. I went through a hell of a detox. The director of the center I was at used to tell me, "if you're feeling nauseous, have a banana. The natural sugars will slow down your detox." But I was in some kind of a race. I wanted the weight off and I wanted my MS reversed. And, of course, I lost my way again and again and again trying to restrict my fruits. Silly me. Bananas are awesome!!!!
