30 Bananas a Day!

Sleep:  7.5 hours (too little)

12 oz. water upon waking – I’m pretty nauseous usually that early in the morning so that’s as much as I could stomach.

 

Breakfast:  Smoothie with 5 bananas and 4 dates. - Drank half at 7:30 am and half at 10 am.

Lunch: 2 bananas and 6 dates 12:30 pm

Snack 2 bananas – 2:45 pm

12 oz. water – 4:00 pm

Snack – 4:00 pm – 300 g strawberries

Dinner – 6 pm – 2 cups fresh orange juice

 

I cannot seem to eat more than 4 bananas whole at one time.  I’m definitely trying to stretch my stomach and take one more bite beyond when I feel full.

 

I have not felt super hungry today – for any of my meals even.  On a normal day, even if I wasn’t hungry, I’d go and buy either a Quiznos (my FAVORITE) or Subway sandwich or some sort of fast food, and eat anyways.  I need to figure out why my brain does that.  What is prompting me to eat?  Habbit?  Boredom?

 

My coworker brought in this amazingly scrumptious-looking chocolate cake today that is absolutely one of my main weaknesses.  I’m happy to say that I didn’t even eat one bite – which my coworker said, “one bite won’t hurt right?”  I’m craving BREAD today.  Weird.  My family (who are all absolutely 100% SAD diet), have these amazing rolls sitting on the counter.  I’ve had them before and they are amazing and it’s driving me crazy seeing them every time I walk into the kitchen.  I just might put them into the kitchen so that I don’t have to see them every time I walk in there…  I kept thinking to myself, “why not just make healthier choices, like eating whole grain breads and make sure I bring my lunch to work instead of eating out…” but that defeats the purpose of getting healthy and is my SAD brain working and craving.  I need to change the way I think about food – food is for nutrition, not pleasure.  Sure it’s probably going to be more appetizing the further along I get in this lifestyle but for right now, I’m eating just to get nutrition, I have no true pleasure with what I eat.

 

I have had a minor headache throughout the afternoon and am trying to drink more water again to see if that helps – maybe it’s a bit of the detox?  Energy wise I feel pretty good.  Maybe a tad sleepy – got a late start to sleeping last night so I need to improve on that.  Feeling a little dizzy almost like I did last time I tried 80/10/10 but hoping I can push through it and just trying to up my water intake and eat more often to see if that helps.

 

I’ve lost almost 2 pounds which I’m sure is water weight.  I’m definitely not gas/bloaty after eating meals now which a major advantage.  I’ve had no heartburn.  I had a little bit of soft poop today (sorry guys) and have been gurgly.  I can feel stuff moving!!

 

Went and bought a 40 lb box of bananas for about $24 – does that seem reasonable?  Winco doesn’t give discount on buying a box but I figured it’d be cheaper than Safeway – it’s almost 20 cents cheaper per pound…  My room smells like bananas – it’s kinda gross.  Is there any way to avoid this?  Still waiting on my mangos to get ripe.  I definitely feel like keeping an eye on ripeness of things is a bit time consuming but I guess it’s easier than cooking dishes…  Just grab and eat!

 

Around 5:00 I had a moment of weakness (hence my previous post about feeling like I couldn't do this).  After I tried papaya (which I didn’t like), my mom made a comment, “maybe you should just go halfway so you at least have some sort of social life.”  That made me upset because I started to think she was right.  Then I made spiralized zuchinni pasta for dinner with a homemade marinara and the marinara was not good – I don’t think it was sweet enough (just tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes and 1 stalk celery).  I tossed that.  Then I got even more upset and was seriously so close to going out and getting McDonalds and giving up.  Then I decided that oranges sounded really good so I juiced 5 and got 2 cups of orange juice – SOOOOOO good!!  Could have juiced more and drank a ton more.  Having a little bit of tooth sensitivity now – don’t know if it’s coincidence after the OJ or the acidity in the OJ caused it?  Either way, the OJ gave me hope – it got me feeling ok about this journey again.

 

It’s amazing how much this is a mind over matter – eat to live healthy or eat to eat?  Choice made for day 2.  Day 2 successful!!

I have found that if I schedule my meals, and eat my calorie goals whether hungry or not, I am not tempted to cheat on the nasties.  

Breads, grains, and gluten are very addicting and can cause chemical effects in the body just like a coffee addiction might.  When we go off grains and gluten, we can have withdrawal effects like cravings and the headache you mentioned.  

Hang in there and stay strong.  It might take 3 days to a week for cravings and addictions to disappear, but you can do it.  

Juicing:

We do not recommend juicing as it can cause several side effects including oral and dental problems.  Juices are also not easily absorbed by the body which could eventually lead to cravings for more food and calories.  If you are hungry, eat more fruit and greens, but try not to get to a point where your body and mind is driving you to get calories because usually the brain will tell us to seek out calorie dense fatty and or processed foods.  

As far as oral health, as you are able, continue to eat about 1/2-2 pounds of lettuce greens a day:
