30 Bananas a Day!

I am about to start searching the discussions for others who started out having a hard time getting enough food in them without being hungry again in half an hour.  I cannot seem to get enough calories in a meal and find myself grazing all day long instead.  I use to snack fairly regularly, but it is nothing like this.  I am constantly eating!  As soon as I'm filled to capacity and have to stop I do, but then I'm hungry very very quickly.  I just can't get enough calories to be satiated.  I'm not big on blended bananas so the smoothie idea is out for me.  I really hate them!  I do love banana's though, just can't seem to drink them.  I know drinking my fruit would be faster and certainly more condensed but at this time it isn't something I can do a lot of.  I know in time my stomach will stretch, and have some give but right now it isn't to the capacity it NEEDS to be.  

Although I am not 100% vegan as of yet, and not 100% raw as of yet, I am heading in the right direction.  Been flesh free, only accidently ingested egg, but did intentionally eat butter two days ago.  The cooked part only comes from the pita I've been eating with hummus but that is almost done for.  I have no intention of giving up honey, as I raise bees and have five hives in my back yard.  I do raise chickens too, but everyone else eats the eggs, not me.

My husband hasn't noticed yet that I haven't eaten any flesh.  He seems oblivious, but he does want me to lose weight, so perhaps the sight of me eating only a cantaloupe or 1lb of grapes for dinner is a welcomed sight.  It is certainly keeping things at an even keel not having to discuss or explain my actions as of yet.  I know it will be an ugly battle when it comes down to it but I cannot spend the rest of my life being this sick!  I refuse to be unhealthy, overweight, unhappy, and have fibromyalgia (and all the horrors that come with it) for the rest of my life.  If there is an answer out there, I will find it.  Besides, I think I am on the right track with this!  :)

Emily, how fast do you eat your meals? Do you chew slowly, making sure everything's mashed up until liquid and fiber as thoroughly as you can, appreciating every single bite, while not being distracted by anything else while you're eating?

Part of the reason why you may not be liking the whole smoothie deal is that you mentioned "drinking" them. It's not drinking them. You're "chewing" every sip in your mouth until it doesn't taste sweet. I've had an aversion to smoothies before because they weren't so satiating when first transitioning four years ago, but realized the problem is that gulping them down vs processing it inside for a while and being mindful about it before swallowing is quite a whole deal.

How many calories are you getting in for your height/weight?

Also, how ripe/what quality is your fruit? Is it making your eyes roll out of amazement on the first bite, or do you look at a soggy piece of cold watery cantaloupe on your plate and wish you could have something else?

Hope this somewhat helps.
