Dr. Douglas Graham has been successfully guiding people through the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges that accompany healthful eating for more than thirty years.

A week at Banana Island will change your eating patterns, but more important, it will change your relationship with yourself.

*For full date & payment details, see "At-a-Glance Banana Island Escape 2017," below.

Banana Island will give you everything you need to succeed!

Enjoy Banana Island with Dr. Doug Graham and friends from the 80/10/10 community!

This special retreat is one of our most popular because of the profound transformations people experience. Many people have heard of it, but very few have actually visited "Banana Island" with Dr. Graham. On The Island, you will experience a week of simplicity, while having tons of fun and learning all about bananas, nutrition, fitness, and health. There will be only a small group on Banana Island, so you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know Dr. Graham up close and personal. Meals will be simple and tasty, as we show you a wide variety of methods for enjoying the fantastic banana. (Yes, greens will be served too.) There will be optional fitness activities before each meal, and educational and social presentations after each meal. This is the event that will bring our community together, as we share the experience of life on The Island.


Have fun and bond with us as we feast on Nature's number-one superfood. Learn the history of Banana Island, its purposes, and why this amazing program works so well.

On Banana Island, not only will your relationship with yourself change for the better, but your appreciation for bananas will improve forever. If you are looking to bring sanity back to your eating habits, hoping to get a grip on your health, wanting to have fun with your 811 family, or just looking to bask in the glow of the 811 community, come to Banana Island.

"Banana Island was the best thing I've ever done for myself. I look forward to the next FoodnSport event I can attend."
—Karen Heap 2012 Banana Island attendee

What will I gain by attending the Banana Island event?

A week on The Island (a metaphor - not a real Island!) will give you a true baseline of your current level of health. Being on The Island for a week will renew your sense of true hunger while eating all you care for.

Your taste bud's sensitivity will heighten to full strength while on Banana Island. Not only will Banana Island improve your relationship with food, it will improve your relationship with yourself. The Banana Island experience will allow you to feel and know the pleasures of eating raw, and eating simply. By limiting food variables, you can determine the nature of many health issues.

Your digestive system will thank you for the rest it receives.

"I want to say after being home for a few days I feel I really learned a lot at Banana Island. And it feels like it sunk into the deeper levels, and that it will stick! I can't think of how Banana Island could be a more practical introduction to the 80/10/10 lifestyle. It was an excellent experience in every respect."
—Dave King 2012 Banana Island attendee

Dr. Doug Graham

Dr. Graham at Lunch

Founder of FoodnSport,  Dr. Graham brings to this event decades of experience working with thousands of people who want to overcome their roadblocks to health and vitality.

Dr. Graham studied nutrition, primarily to enhance his own sports performance, from an early age. In college, where he majored in Health and Physical Education, he took every nutrition course offered. Going through his chiropractic training, he again took every nutrition course offered, studying nutrition every year while going through school.

When his interest in natural hygiene took hold in 1981, he started studying nutrition from a new slant, and with profoundly greater understanding. During the past thirty years, Dr. Graham's interest and enthusiasm for nutrition has never waned. He has authored several books on nutrition, including Nutrition and Athletic Performance, and the best selling The 80/10/10 Diet.

Always one to see the big picture, Dr. Graham has become a leader in all areas related to food, farming, diet, nutrition, culinary skills, and even the related environmental sciences. There truly are few people in the world who have been so focused on helping people overcome health problems through proper nutrition, nor any who have followed their own advice so successfully.

Grant Campbell


Grant will be leading some of the classes on fitness science and nutrition. Also known as Raw Aussie Athlete, since moving on from his 15-year full time corporate job at IBM, Grant has been promoting better health through the 80/10/10 raw vegan diet lifestyle. Grant has been Vegan since 1999, 80/10/10 Raw Vegan since 2005 after listening to Dr. Graham's Perfect Health Program, and has been mentored by Dr. Graham since 2007.

He is an established ultramarathon runner whose video instruction and tips on running are included in our 80/10/10 Family Membership materials. As an extreme endurance athlete, Grant has participated in over 50 ultra running events from 50km to 140 miles consistently improving his results every year and plans to run a 100 mile race when he turns 100. Grant wants to help enable people to choose to be their best through education and support with FoodnSport as well as through his newsletter and retreats.

Our Family

Nothing can replace the feeling of sitting down with 40 other people who all believe in living well. The raw food lifestyle is often labeled as isolating, but at Banana Island, isolation is the last thing you feel. We generate friendships that last a lifetime, and we foster an environment where real community can be developed. Our staff and attendees will keep in touch with you throughout the year, helping you to achieve your goals, and strengthen your resolve. Here, you will never feel more at home away from home. And when you leave you will feel more connected than ever. So come to Banana Island and join the family.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How many people attend Banana Island?

Banana Island will sell out and is limited to a maximum of 30 people, including work exchange attendees. We ensure a high ratio of staff/trainers to attendees so that your learning and hands-on experience is personalized and effective. We encourage you to place your deposit as early as possible to secure your spot in the program.

What are the accommodations like at the retreat center?

We have a few different indoor options, including several private double rooms (some with bathrooms), and a small dormitory. If we are very tight on accommodations, camping may be called for, which can be a very pleasant experience if this option interests you. If you wish to camp, you are perfectly free to bring a sleeping roll, sleeping bag and tent. If you are intending to camp, be sure to contact retreats@foodnsport.com as early as possible before the event to assist us in effectively allocating bedding.

Will I have my own room or will the rooms be shared?

All rooms except the Rose room are being booked as shared rooms. You have the option of booking both spots upstairs if available. Call us at 877-811-4569 or email us for more information about the rooms and rates.

Will I have access to a phone and the Internet?

Communication to the outside world from the retreat center will be available, but limited. We hope you will come to unplug and focus on making your Banana Island dreams a reality!

While wireless Internet is available, speeds are low and connections may drop from time to time. Cell phone coverage is patchy, with Verizon offering the best signal. A land line phone is available, but on a limited basis.
