30 Bananas a Day!

 As much as I tried to stay on raw high carb for 100%, I couldn't; had some business up north of state, so had to leave home for the weekend and eat some high carb starchy cooked foods as an alternative. But I am back home now and back in the HCRV wagon.

Feel pretty good, definitely noticing the difference while exercising. Unfortunately, I haven't had a single salad yet. mistake on my part, still a little bit lazy, gotta get my ass out to the kitchen for more than just 5 min to make a smoothie and/or grab some fruit, but to start making salads and eating greens as well.

 recap of my nutrition and activity log for the 1st week, starting with Wednesday (when i went raw):

yea, I can eat more for sure. still a little bit lazy though after just getting off cooked diet, but I'll improve. definitely using cron-o-meter, and will be for a while, last time I got too confident and stopped using it, I stirred into high fat danger zone lol.

it's funny though, I really don't eat that much fruit yet, but my mother is already all freaking out :"Why are you eating all those bananas and dates, you gonna get fat", which is pretty ironic, since last time when I was doing raw foods (before i got off, to support her on her vegan journey) I was way fitter than I am right now.

Yeah more greens for sure!  Ditch those craisins...just go with some organic raisins or dates maybe.

seems like you could eat more fruit especially being a male and active. Are you tracking your intake on cronometer or somewhere else? Good stuff though! My workouts are real similar to yours
