I recently have been red flagged with a borderline type 2 diabetes. I was eating mostly fruit during the day and some cooked food at night. I was trying to to mix fruit with fats, and fasting for 20…Continue

I am a raw Vegan on the 80 10 10, met Dr Graham in 2008 in Miami and was very impressed by this teachings. I follow a diet mostly on fruits and greens. I have been following Duriander for a while now and I am looking for a community where I can relate, share information and grow. I believe in support groups and I find it very difficult with the mainstream as they are very little people that share my views on nutrition.

I enjoy their videos on YouTube, and think that 30bananas a day will be a way for me to be part of a community that thinks alike. I need support on how to deal with cravings. I eat about 2,500 calories and exercise one hour a day. But at nights a tend to get very hungry. Still working on this, particularly at now that the winter has been cold in Florida. I am cold all the time.

Good to hear that you're doing great. I am also doing well. This is only my 5th day without binging, so I'm concentrating on "one day at a time." I'm just concentrating on this one day, and trying to get all the way to bed-time with no SAD cooked food; just all the fruits and veggies I can eat. If I can do this for 60 days straight, I'll have my blood sugar stabilized-without medications.
I heard you say someting about fats and I wanted to remind you they are no good for arresting diabetes. They inhibit the effectiveness of insulin. Reversing diabetes is, intellectually, very easy: just eat fruits and veggies--and nothing else.
My problem is that I frequently get lonely, bored, angry, tired, stressed, etc. At those times I want to eat for emotional reasons--and my intellect is not much good at those times.
Last night I felt like eating some "comfort food" about 9 p.m. I was just about to give in when I realized that all I needed to do was "tough it out" for another hour or two and go to bed! So I read a book, read the paper, worked a crossword puzzle, and did some exercise for my lower back. All those were "wasted time," by most people's estimation, but I got through the day and went to bed. Today is Day 3. Every day has some kind of challenge!
Today I feel like there is not really anything difficult about this program--except coping with my emotions without "comfort food." Since childhood I have had the habit of using food for social, recreational form of relaxation and emotional escape from reality. That is what makes this program difficult fo r me.
