Well, I’m back from my trip to banana island! And I had such a good time. I did found it hard sometimes. I had some evenings where my boyfriend was enjoying an amazing looking salad, while I was stuck at my banana’s. But I got used to it. I’ve only done it for 4 whole days and 1 morning. I stopped because I had a dinerparty from my father in law, he made some special dishes for me, so I dind’t like to refuse them, But they weren’t fat or anything, everything was HCLF.
Did I enjoy banana island?
Yeah, I actually did. After I got used to large amounts of banana’s, I enjoyed eating them. I also saw (or I thought I saw, it might be to quick to judge) health benefits! It looked like my hair stopped falling out. Also my skin had some sort of a glow, it felt nice. And my digestion was amazing! Me, with all the colon problems,had a good digestion!! I think that was the best advantage.
What I didn’t like about banana Island:
You have to eat banana’s ONLY. So it’s hard to join dinnerparty’s, ’cause the only thing you can eat are banana’s. I had to reject some nice evenings, because of the food. I couldnt eat anything, so why should I go then? I only did it for 4 days, but tis could be a real problem if you wat to do it for a longer time of period. And I literally got sick of bananas. I probably ate to much, or it was some kind of a detox. After 4 days, I craved normal food like hell.
But in the end, it felt great.
DO I want to do it again? Yes. It did make me feel so healthy, and it fixed my digestion problems.
But for now, I’m really happy to eat RT4 again!
I got terrible news a couple days ago. I lost my job in the bookshop. It’s hard because I really liked it there and the fired me because of my illness (a disease in my colon, colitus ulcerosa) . They thought that I wasn’t able to work “flexible” bacause of m hospital appointments. It hurts. But I’ll find something else, I’m sure! My RT4 days are a bit harder, I wasn’t really strict RT4 when I was on holiday, but now I’m trying to be strict again. On day 22 I went out fr dinner, my boyfriend and I went to an Indian place, and GOOOSSH IT WAS SO GOOD. I’d never been there before, never even eaten Indian before, but it was soo damn good. I had the vegetarian option, and my boyfriend, of course, not. I was in a lot of pain afterwarts (all these herbs and spices are a bit too much for my colon)
- Breakfast: soja milk with nuts and fruit and 1 banana
- Snack: none
- Lunch: 2 pieces of toast with honey and 3 peaches
- Snack: soup
- Dinner: Indian
- Breakfast: 3 banana’s
- Snack: 1 glutenfree piece of bread with jam and strawberries ( a lot of strawberries)
- Lunch: a huuuge salad with peas
- Snack: peaches and carrot with hummus
- Dinner: salad with tomato,later another salad with cucumber
- Snack: candy.. (lollipops)
So the candy wasn’t good, but I was on the birthday of my babysit child, she turned eight and she all gave us 2 lollipops. So instead of refusing them, I ate them both. Sometimes it’s hard t say no…
how are you today? I’m fine, bit tired of work, it was a long day. But I need to have some more energy cause today is my brthdayparty! I invited a lot of friends and family, so I know it’s gonna be a great night! And this time, everybody who I invited are actually coming. Most of the time some of my friends are on holiday, or they already have another party.. But not this time. It’s nice to have all the people that I love, coming over. We made some pretty nice snacks and bought a lot of drinks. I hope I won’t slip, and binge on the delicious food we prepared..
My day looked like this (so far):
RT4 day 5
Breakfast: banana smoothie made of 6 banana’s and some coconut sugar.
Lunch: a large salad and 1 banana
Dinner: a large chicken peas salad with some fruits before
Snack: ? (I think some aperol-spritz..)
so yesterday was my birthday, I turned twenty! 😀 And I really had an amazing day!! I’ll celebrate it tomorrow, because my birthday was on a tuesday, and it’s easier to celebrate it in the weekend. (when most people don’t have to go to work, except me, I have to work tomorrow) But let’s go back to the 24th! When I woke up, I heard the ‘birthdaysong’ on the birthday cd. (It’s an awfull song, it keeps repeating: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!”) My parents made breakfast, and mum bought glutenfree bread and fruit for me. I got an necklase and a ring from the fairtrade store, a nomination charm, a beautiful picture and traveliing stuff!! After that Vin&I went to Den Bosch (a large city,1.5 hour drive) just because we felt like it. We drunk in the sun, cocktails on a terrace. I felt so happy.After that we went for a walk through the city, and we went for a lunch in an amazing lunchshop! They made the best things, all biologic and organic! If you want to see what I ate, view my last RT4 post! 🙂 After that we went to Helmond (another hour drive) and I bought some shirts and a skirt there. We also went out for dinner: SUSHII. It’s my favorite, I could eat it all day long. It was so cool, such a nice day to look back on!
