WHY ARE YOU ON A BANANA DIET?! That sounds… bananas!
Technically, I am on Raw Till 4
Why Raw Till 4?
Because Shakeology and all those other diets prescribed by companies are mostly looking to make a profit. They are effective, but I just don’t like the idea of purchasing their products every week. I want something easy, sustainable, unprocessed, and un-manufactured.
Benefits of Raw Till 4
- High energy – unlike low-carb diets that have left me feeling sluggish, bananas are a well known source of energy, so you are able to complete workouts as per the usual.
- Eat as much as you like – bananas are surprisingly satisfying and filling, despite their one note nutrients and chemistry. I crave eating some lentil soup or mixing the bananas up into a smoothie, but supplementing these items is enough for me to not feel a lack.
- Cheap – 5 bananas is about $1. Eat 20 a day for $4 or 30 for $6. Throw in some protein powder, soy milk, and vitamins, and it can be a lot long term sustainable and healthy.
- Low waste – especially if you can escape the unnecessary practice of bananas wrapped in plastic, as the skins can be composted.
