      Their diet, although it seems to be working for them, seems a little crazy to me (at least it would make me crazy):

      Breakfast and after short run:  Green smoothie (fruit, greens & water), 5+ bananas
      Lunch:   Either 20+ mandarines,10+ oranges, 1 melon, 1 pineapple, 5+ bananas and/or other fruits 
      Dinner:  Either a large green salad with savoury fruits; tomato, cucumber, courgette, capsicum etc
                   or a large fruit smoothie, or 1 large fruit such as a melon, papaya, pineapple etc
      Snacks:  Any fruit or a freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice
      Before a long (15+km) training run: 20oz water, 10oz fruit smoothie, 2-5 bananas
      During a long (20+km) training run:  water, dates

        Just thinking about eating that much fruit makes my mouth break out in ulcers.

          Just thinking about that much fruit makes my asshole pucker, specifically the citrus.


          I thought my 5+ raw fruits a day habit was a bit much.

          "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

          just a simple cat

            There is no way I could eat that and run around Australia.  I would have to be within 10 feet of a bathroom at all times!






              That's bananas!




                Maybe I'm missing something, but where is the protein? Calcium? Fat? This looks like a severely unbalanced diet.


                I'm sure they are loved by their organic produce wholesaler.
