Their diet, although it seems to be working for them, seems a little crazy to me (at least it would make me crazy):
On rising and before a short (15km) training run: 10oz pure spring water, 1 bananaBreakfast and after short run: Green smoothie (fruit, greens & water), 5+ bananasLunch: 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 etcSnacks: Any fruit or a freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juiceBefore a long (15+km) training run: 20oz water, 10oz fruit smoothie, 2-5 bananasDuring a long (20+km) training run: water, datesAfter a long (20+km) run: Breakfast plus extra fruit especially bananas
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." Emil Zatopek
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!
Running is stupid
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.
