i am just starting a raw vegan diet and so looking forward to it...i joined a course and the instructor actually discussed banana island and that is where i am spending next week . i live in New Hampshire and have 32 inches of snow and craving warm food ...he expressed soups (cold or slightly warm ) but have no recipes for any such soups do you ? thank you
I've tried this before, but usually fall off the wagon around tea time!! So addicted to cooked food! I am reading the 80/10/10 book, and it makes so much sense. I managed 2.5 days on 80/10/10 a few weeks ago, but fell off the wagon. :( I will keep reading the book.

Anyone up for it? I will be starting tomorrow but jump in at anytime.
Banana Island or mono-island(pick a fruit you can get the most calories from) is a great way to give the digestive system a break so the body can use that energy to heal itself. A lot of great things can happen on Banana Island. Don't make this about weight loss though. Health should always be number one and with health comes your bodies proper weight. So let's ditch the scales on this one :) Usually we do this for 3-10 days but it's your choice. Even one day will do your body a lot of good.
I thought we could keep up one thread and whenever we decide to jump on board just come here and post. Start at anytime as long and as many times as you wish!
-Aim for a minimum of 2,500 calories -Make sure you also eat your greens which are very important. -Aim for at least 2.5 liters of water. 1 liter upon waking is always recommended. -Get a free account on cronometer.com. It's very important to track your food to make sure your getting enough calories(do not cut calories as it only leads to weight gain and poor health in the end) It can look like this for each day of the island.
