30 Bananas a Day!

I seem to get an uncomfortable feeling on the right side of my sternum when eating more than a quarter of a big seeded watermelon, followed by a pain in my right shoulder.  It's bad enough that I can't concentrate on anything else-- or eat of course-- until it passes and it takes sometimes 30 minutes or more to do so.  I've seen other people express similar experiences with watermelons but today I had the same thing after half a 10 banana smoothie.

I know this isn't normal but maybe my body isn't ready to process such a high volume of fruit yet?  I've only been doing the for a couple of weeks and I've had a ton of positive results so far but that one kind of worries me.

Anyone else dealt with this?

There have been many posts about this in the past, but I didn't pay too much attention because I haven't suffered from that.  Maybe a search would turn something up.  I do seem to remember that chromium deficiency might be a cause, but please do some research reading through old threads to confirm.  Good luck!

Some of us are allergic to certain types of fruits.  I personally am allergic to pineapple, therefore I do not eat it.  

I can only eat melons as snack foods and not as my main meal foods.  

Play around with different fruits and see what works for you.  Also, add about 1/2-2 heads of lettuce greens a day.  

The following formula works well for long term health and success:

Diet in a Banana Peel 

Eat a raw frugivore diet where most carbohydrates and calories come from whole raw ripe sweet and juicy fruits like oranges, papaya, or mangoes, supplemented with about ½-2 heads of lettuce greens a day (not kale, chard, and spinach) and about a handful of raw nuts or seeds a day. Eat simple meals but a rainbow of foods over a period of time.  

Eat enough on a daily basis with at least 2500 calories for females and at least 3000 calories for males.  Drink 2-4 quarts of water a day and pee clear. Get 8-12 hours of sleep as needed. Exercise about 30 minutes a day 5-6 days a week with at least one day off for rest and repairs.  Get about 30 minutes of sunshine a day on your skin for vitamin D, mental health, eye health, and healthy bones and teeth.

Hey Bryant! Listen, you need to drink lots of water before eating a watermelon or any large meal... I used to feel that way with any kind of fruit in large amounts, so I started drinking about 2liters of water in the AM before I eat anything at all! Sometimes I don't even feel like drinking that much but I know my body needs it. After like 20 to 30 minutes, the water passes down out of my stomach and I am ready for food! I never had that pain again! Thank Goodness, because I used to have to crawl up and I couldn't concentrate for anything, sometimes it was even hard to breathe! I'm grateful I found out why... I think your stomach needs a "stretch" with water before the "stretch" with food!

Any more questions you can ask me, I've been doing this lifestyle for 4 years now. Cheers!!! :)
