I keep thinking about a man that James and I met back in Santa Barbara at the Raw Festival 2010. He was experimenting with a mono diet. A mono diet is consuming one type of food only for a period of time. Some refer to this as visiting mono island. The best way to do a mono island is to choose one type of fruit or fruit juice (your favorite fruit would be best) and eat ONLY that fruit for a period of time. The man we met was an ultra-runner; a person who runs very long distances (25 miles plus). He looked like a normal, healthy person. He was experimenting with blueberries and said he felt pretty good. I was thinking to myself, there is no way I could run a marathon on blueberries alone.
I could do this (mono diet) for a few days maximum – how about you? What would be your fruit of choice? Mine would be blueberries or watermelon. I don’t plan on visiting mono island anytime soon.
