I am a single mother living in the Netherlands but Hungarian by nationality. Healthy lifestyle always interested me. In my childhood I wanted to become a doctor to save lives. As a person though I always tried to avoid going to the doctor and felt if I eat the right thing, it can help me more than a doctor. With small sickness or infection I tried to use everything but medicine. I was always skinny, very skinny but a sport girl and more healthy than sick. As I got older I put weight on around my waist (172 cm, 60 kg with my fat!) and always had a big stomach so people stood up to give me a seat beliving I am pregnent. It happened so often that I got fed up clarifying the situation and just accepted the seat and was nodding how difficult pregnancy was in the hot summer. I also had acne on my face and chest, back. Terrible headache appeared, visiting me more and more often. First just for few hours then for a couple of days with such frequency that I started to count the day in the week when I had no head ache. As the frequency and the length of the headache grew so did the pain. I got up very tired every morning, wanting to sleep even by day time. Sleep was never enough. The depression was so great that I wanted to jump out of my skin. I met someone and told me about the candida (I've never heard of before) and did a three months of candida diet I was advised by someone. I began to feel better. The headache was gone and my mood was a lot better. I realized food means a lot. I have to say here I wasn't a burger girl or such. I grew up in a village and ate the fruit and vegetable that my parents grew in the garden. We also had our own pig, chicken. Everything was organic. I hardly had meat, was more a vegetable eater. At the age of 20 I flew out my parents' house but I still cooked my own food, still hardly any meat. Bread was always on my table, loved it. Pasta, potato, rice, vegetble was the main food, sometimes some fruit. Nothing was organic anymore, which meant everything was tasteless unlike in my parents' house, which meant I added a lot of flavour enhancer. Not long ago my flatmate's friend started a raw food diet and I tried it too. I started to feel better but I didnt really know how to do it properly. I had vegetable and green once a day but all I wanted to eat was fruit. I wanted to eat it so badly that felt like an addiction. I couldn't wait to grab my next portion. My flatmate told me I eat far too much. Wow you become a real pig. I also thought that is not normal to eat so much fruit. Sooner or later I become sick. And was ashamed to eat especially in front of my flatmate. I told her I work physically hard all day and I need energy but in reality I also thought I am a real pig. I started to feel excellent but I convinced myself all these fruit will lead to serious problem later if I dont stop it. So I was on and off my normal diet and raw food. I new raw food is good just have to learn how to do it properly. I started to search the net and came across this page. Now I want to try 80.10.10 diet and see how I feel. I'm determined to change my life. I also started swimming, doing different exercises, running, biking in the nearby park, practice positive thinking, even made a pic with photoshop which shows where and what I want to be. You can say she is already 40 but I say I am just reborning into my new life. Hope my English is good enough to understand me. Wish you all a healthy and happy life. News: having more and more success on 811:)

You need to be a member of 30 Bananas a Day! to add comments!
Thank you for reaching out to me, I really appreciate that. I just started today eating 11 bananas, two peaches, half a cucumber, an apple, and then a smoothy at night with fruits and some kale with hemp protein! Honestly, in the beginning of my day I wanted to explode with frustration because I was frustrated with how long I have been struggling. After I started eating more and more bananas my mood lifted and I felt a bit more energetic and focused. It was weird, even if it was placebo effect, it worked. Tonight I am experiencing some movement in my tummy, I have been constipated for months! No satisfaction in that area haha...anyways, this sensation is different than the sharp stabbing pains I normally get, so I am going to drink some peppermint tea and hope for the best! This new lifestyle is hopefully going to change some things for me, I mean, I have restricted myself for almost a year on different ideas and diets that are all over the place. Something really bad that I am trying to battle is a habit of smoking cigarettes sine I do not drink at all anymore, and I had an addiction to pills, I felt like I needed a vice, something to lean on. I came home today and went to smoke and it tasted different...not good. Ok, I am talking a lot about myself.
How long have you been doing this and why? This online community of support is really amazing, and with all these people swearing by it, it has to do something.
