A Banana Island recap is definitely long overdue; thank you for prompting me! :) My most recent experience of Banana Island lasted for 7 days (due to running out of bananas at the 7 day mark!) The first time I tried this detox, the main challenge I had to overcome was not getting enough variety. I absolutely love bananas, but nothing but bananas drives me a little crazy after a while. Alternating the ways in which I prepare them (like this) really helps, but choosing one type of leaf to accompany them is the solution for sanity, I have found ;) Bananas and spinach were the ideal pairing for me. I made banana-spinach ice cream and smoothies, and even munched through bowls of half sliced bananas and half spinach leaves.
These were the main benefits I experienced during the detox:
Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your trip!
PS. I forgot to answer the question of how many bananas I ate, opps! I just gauged it by how hungry I was and ate enough for each meal to keep me satisfied. Anywhere from 6 to 10 per meal.#sweatytherapy #text posts #go bananans #banana island #raw vegan #801010 #detox
Hello there! (and thanks!)
I mostly use a Sony Cybershot (12.1 megapixels), which is now several years old. I also use an iPod touch occasionally.
Hello there :)
It depends so much on your previous diet/habits as to how the initial period of detox will affect you. Digestive issues are a very common challenge in the early stages of detox, but it will get better! I would guess that the nightmare will have been unrelated.
Firstly, make sure you have researched the ass off low-fat high-carb raw veganism, so you can commit to it as fully as you desire. Look at food combining; drink loads; sleep loads; eat enough calories, and don’t skimp on any nutrients! :)
Detox can be tough initially, but it will pass, and the positives will soon begin to outweigh the tougher times. It takes time and patience, and sometimes a lot of tweaking here a there to figure out how to make this lifestyle work for you. If I can help in any way, just let me know. I’m always happy to keep messages private if you’d prefer. Good luck!
