I think the 30 bananas part isn't literal, just supposed to get the point about eating a ton of fruit across. It's been a while since I read about it, lemme see...

Quote:
Q. What does a banana girl eat in a day?

A. At least 95% of your calories come from fruit, 5% from greens, nuts and seeds. You aim to get 9-12 hours of sleep a night. You make sure you drink 3 litters of water or more a day. An average day might be:

Breakfast: Datorade: 20-30 dates blended on high speed with around 1.2-1.5 litres of water plus cinnamon to taste. Around 1300 calories

Lunch: 8-10 Mangoes/half a large jakfruit/3 pineapples

Dinner: A baby green salad with 5 chopped up bananas and 5 dates. Put aside some dates and banana and blend as sauce.

mmmmmmmmm- just saying, that whole 30bananas thing gets people very upset (on both sides), maybe best to just leave that topic lie.

I like to think instead about this Nat Geo thing that had maybe Jeff Corwin sailing for days up the Amazon and all he had to eat the whole time was a giant stalk of bananas (you figure one "clutch" of bananas can have 50 or more bananas on it). They're relatively sustaining for a while if they're all you have (like I have to tell a vegan that, amirite)

back to Potato.... i was raw for a while, and i don't think 10 apples in a day is really thaaaaat many unless it's stopping you from eating other good things like beans or whatever. i mean, some people eat 10 donuts a day, so it could be much worse.

Just reading about the banana thing makes my latex allergy prickle.

The apples are cutting into the rest of my daily intake. Since having to take a long break from lifting my diet has become whacky. I need to address the issue soon.

How about combining the apples with other fruits/veggies in smoothies? That way you can bliss out on apples, but still get a daily dose of other foods. Throw in some flaxseed oil/protein powder and bam.

I may have overplayed my concern about the apples but 10 apples a day is too many for me. It may be one of my favorite foods but I like to keep it at ~4 a day.

Also, advocating any long term diet that is based on such extremes as eating 95% fruit or anything similarly restrictive is awful. It’s potentially harmful and unhealthy long term, physiologically and mentally. Anyone selling or preaching such nonsense should be challenged by the reader/listener. The burden of proof is on the originator of the information.

That is a lot of apples!

My confession is that my dude shaved off his beard and now I'm weirded out by his face. I think I'm subconsciously reacting badly to it too and making him feel bad. At least they grow back?

Ha, I once dated a guy who had a beard when we met. About 6 months in he decided to shave it, and I was soooo nervous that I wouldn't be as into his face as his beard! Turns out, I liked his bare face way better than the beard and secretly hoped he would never grow it back.

My boyfriend grew a beard over the winter, and I haaaaated it. It looked okay, but it went up my nose when we would make out, and if he'd go to kiss me goodbye or whatever after taking a sip of coffee or whatever, I'd get it all over my face. So gross.

I may have just called some cartoon characters a "bunch of stupid f***faces" under my breath because they poured granulated sugar into cold lemonade without dissolving it first. I'm cranky today.

I shudder to think.

I just made this pretty nice mocha milkshake thing (which I really shouldn't be drinking at this time of night because it's quarter to ten and the caffeine and sugar will probably interfere with my sleep) but it was missing something, and I knew half a shot of rum would be perfect in it, so I added it and am drinking it.

This is in the confession thread because I posted on facebook and on one or more threads here that I was going to go a year without drinking alcohol. Which I was doing until my birthday week last week when I just thought fork it and had a third of a glass of wine on two evenings. But I sort of feel like I should say somewhere that I failed my challenge. I'm not planning on going on a bender now or anything, I just feel a bit disappointed with myself. The rum is the perfect addition though!
