Well, I didn't make it a whole week, but I sure am glad I went to the Island. It was fun and I felt great. I think I'm going to keep things simple - mono meals - for a while.

Today is Day 3 on the Island. The idea is to eat just one type of fruit for the whole week. Well do the absolutely unripe state of my bananas and the store's bananas, yesterday was really spent on Date Island - until the evening when I had about 8 apple slices and 2 tangerines.

Still think the day was easier on my digestion than a day of more complicated combos of food. And No Salt is so good for me.

Anyone else want to join us on the Island. Be sure and eat enough calories and drink enough water!

How's it going DanikaYoga? I am fine. My bananas are taking their own sweet time getting ripe so this is a Datorade day. That's ok - just mono eating is so new for me. Hope you're having fun with this.

I'm thinking one week and then see where I'm at. What do you think?

Is it my imagination or are my rings way looser - after just one day.

How did your day go?

I'm glad you added that last post. I didn't really think of any of those things. I just thought I would eat a lot of bananas and dates :) The crate of bananas I got are not all fully ripe but I do have some left from the other crate which should last me all of tomorrow. If they aren't ripe after that then I will have to do apples and dates until they are ripe.

How long are you planning on doing this?

Well, I walked to the grocery store in the snow (2 miles there and 2 miles back) and got my bananas and dates. The bananas are all green. But I'll start on Date Island and when the bananas get ripe, I'll add them in.

Here's what Freelee from 30Bananasaday.com says to take into consideration before going to Banana Island. I'm sorry to say that with this weather I sure won't be doing any nude sunbathing : ) The other stuff seems good to note.

"Things to consider before visiting Banana island (BI) paradise...Is it the right time for this holiday??
* How you are going to eat after BI? Ė if you go back to unhealthy eating habits, all your old symptoms will return.
* Being stable on a Low fat raw vegan lifestyle before going on mono-fruit island will increase your chances of long term raw success because generally what peeps eat before the island will be what they eat after the island.
* I donít advise you visit BI just for weightloss reasons because if you go back to your old way of living that caused the weightgain then the fat will return, a sustainable LFRV plan is needed.
* Make sure you always have ripe fruit or else you will get ravenous and eat whatever is closest.
* Ensure you go to nutridiary.com and work out how many calories you need to maintain your current weight and aim for this with your favourite fruit.
* Keep your water intake up, make sure your pee is always clear, this will ensure optimal results from your trip to the island.
* Start a challenge with your raw friends, get a group together and support eachother throughout your stay.
* During your trip away educate yourself on basic physiology and make sure you are reading Ď The 80-10-10 Dietí because this lifestyle should be the goal for when you come off the island (thatís if you want to continue feeling vital)
* Avoid telling mainstream peeps about your holiday to the island until itís over, others opinions may affect your determination
* Plan your trip in detail before starting, write a list of your goals for going to BI, this will give your subconscious mind a clear objective goal to work towards, visualise how amazing you are going to feel, see yourself all happy and healthy in your mindís eye.
* Factor in daily exercise, earn your meal but listen to your body if you need rest, take time out whenever needed.
* Prioritise nude sunbaking, this will speed up elimination and also sooth your soul

Ok so lets all head to the Island together! Blogging here daily will assist many on their trip so please do it :-))

Lets embrace the banana!"

Ugh! none of the bananas here at home are even vaguely ripe! I'm scared to drive the car in the snow - not used to it yet. I will see if I can start tomorrow. Sorry.

Picking up a crate of bananas tomorrow! I also have a 10 pound box of dates being shipped to me as well.

I'm craving mango though. I've never really been a mango person but I want some now

Hi Everyone!

I've had a really hard time shedding this weight I put on over the last 2 -3 years. And I'm thinking about going to Banana Date island. I know the body has an easier time releasing the weight when the diet is super simpler.

I think we'll have an easier time is we support one another. It's important to have a ton of ripe bananas - you know the ones with brown spots on them. And a blender is nice because it's easier to drink your calories.

Who's coming with me?
