30 Bananas a Day!

I started 811rv in April, after I relapsed for the 10000th time and binged. I had enough of the depression, was sick and tired from feeling sick and tired, wanted to be healthy and most of all, wanted to be happy. I wanted to be the best me I could possible be, and to finally start treating my body the way it deserves to be treated. No more abuse, no more pain, no more destructive thinking. So I started studying health and how humans are supposed to eat. I read about Paleo, but it didn't feel right to me. Then I read about fruitarianism, and me, as a fruit lover, was kinda drawn to this way of living. I bought the 801010 book, that really got me hooked, I read the entire book in about a day, and started looking up some more info about this on the internet, wanting to meet other 811 people. Then I randomly found Freelee's video, where she listed all the different fruits she would eat in one day. That is how I found this website and a ton of information! I went fruit shopping the next day and started my 811 lifestyle. Had one slip up when my grandmother passed away, but that only lasted 3 days, until I realized how sick cooked food makes me feel, and I never looked back. I know this is the right way to live for me.

I have always eaten more fruit than the average person, and hardly any meat. Ever since I watched Earthlings last month, giving up meat and dairy was a very easy thing to do. I don't miss it at all, even the opposite, it makes me feel sick watching other people eat meat or smelling cheese or meat. I work in a retirement home so the meal times are a bit difficult for me to handle, but I won't show, gotta stay professional. Earthlings really moved something inside of me, made me feel aggressive, sad and very ashamed to be human. I will save up money every month now and will donate to various animal protection organizations. I just feel this strong need to do something, I will no longer sit back and let the human race destroy Mother Earth. I have been studying a lot about this and am now a member in a local environment protection group.

My friends and family didn't have a hard time accepting my new lifestyle, cause they thought I was crazy before, because I have always been "weird" (in their opinion) about food. Mostly eating fruit, hardly any meat most of my life... they are used to me eating a pile of apples when they are eating cake at a birthday party, or when we go to a restaurant I only grab a full plate of the salad buffet. At first, they thought it was "just a phase"... but it isn't. This is the right way to live for me, I just know it, I feel it. I have never felt better, healthier... I no longer binge, I no longer eat with guilt, I no longer hide my food in secret places, no longer mind that other people watch me eat. I no longer starve myself or feel the need to restrict my calories. I just eat what I want and when I want - always 811rv, of course.

I used to have painful periods - gone
I used to have a bloated belly ALL the friggin' time - gone
I used to have constipation - DEFINATELY gone! "all those bananas you are eating... Aren't you suffering terribly from constipation???" Ha! If only they knew I have to sometimes poop up to 3 times a day! (in case YOU didn't want to know... sorry!)
Had acne - prolly a detox reaction - when I was on 811rv for almost a month, that is now gone too.

I stopped using makeup, stopped using shampoo, stopped using soap. (of course I have to use soap at work, for security and hygiene reasons, but only on my hands and forearms). My skin smells good and my hair has never been softer. I used to dislike myself without makeup, now I am loving my natural look and glow. This lifestyle is expensive? Ehh, no. I no longer need expensive medicine for my painful periods and I am sure I will soon no longer need my allergy (hayfever) pills either. No expensive cosmetics, I will give all of my old lotions and cremes to my sister or friends if they want them, my bathroom shelves will be empty! All I use is a toothbrush. I will save so much money, all to spend on food and the environment! I don't need so much anymore now, my urge to go shopping is gone, I am happy with the little things. I have turned into a very optimistic person! Smiling always, and making other people smile with it!

I am a runner for 2 years now, and since I went raw, I have more energy, can run faster and longer. Sometimes I even want to run twice or more a day. I am so energetic now, even after a tough day at work!

Note that this is only a month and my body is still adjusting. Lots of changes are still to come and I can't wait!

Just wondering though, I eat 90-5-5 on average (according to FitDay), is that alright? And do I have to eat vegetables every day, I am often just not in the mood for veggies, just fruits but I eat the greens anyway just to get enough minerals and vitamins in...

Thanks everyone for your replies! :)

ORGANIC811LFRV - I seem to be doing alright then :) Thanks for clearing that up! I was worried about not getting enough fat and protein.
Janna Bannanna - I hope that I will start craving greens, and will start looking forward to my big salad at the end of the day. Right now, I just eat it cause I have to. Not that I don't enjoy it, but veggies are nothing like the delicious fruits I eat earlier in the day!
Amber M. Gligor - Thank you! This really is a great lifestyle and I am looking forward to even more positive changes!
Franga - Isn't that THE best feeling?! Wished I had done this sooner! Every morning, when I look into the mirror, I see my skin getting healthier and clearer.

Franga, I think the most liberating I've ever done as a woman is to get a buzz cut!  That was an ultimate experience.

Very inspirational! I've been noticing a lot of these effects starting to take place whenever I stay raw, too. Thanks for the reminder of how great this lifestyle is.

You'll eventually crave veggies and greens.

Of course that is alright!!  In fact it is commendable and applaudable!  You are doing fantastic and are a model 80/10/10'r.  The equasion stands for MINIMUM 80% of our calories from fruits, MAX 10% fat and MAX 10% protein all from raw vegies and fruits.


You RAWk darling!
