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.

Dr. Glenn Livingston


Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. You may have seen his (or his company's)  previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page.  You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.   

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.  Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.

Erin Volentine

Erin Volentine at Culinary Skills Week 2013 and 2016

We are pleased to welcome back Erin’s more than capable hands, creativity, and mind to the kitchen this year as head chef! Erin started her journey towards a raw vegan diet over 12 years ago and says, “This change in diet/lifestyle has completely changed every aspect of my life for the better! I have lost weight, cleared up my chronic cystic acne, improved my athletic ability and digestion, gained greater mental clarity and a deeper connection to the world around me - just to name a few things!

Because I have seen such a change in my life, I am extremely passionate about helping others do the same - one small change at a time!”

As one of our 80/10/10 Certified Life Coaching students, Erin has combined that training along with her training in yoga and hosts retreats of her own, does raw food catering, coaching and more. She says she loves yoga almost as much as she loves good food. Come join us and enjoy Erin’s good food with all of us.

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.
