how is this possible? i bought a whole box of dates a week ago and have only eaten a third of the box! i cant eat anymore!
so ive been eating lots of beans, quinoa, pasta, rice because i really dont want anything sweet like bananas either..
eating veges have been easy, i just cant seem to love fruit the way i used to??
as for what im eating now- all organic beans (garbonzo, pinto, kidney, and black) and quino pasta, quino, black and wild rice. im worried about getting too much protein?
ive also noticed i do not go strait to the bathroom like i used to after every meal when i was eating raw fruits all day. but when i do- im not constipated or anything, but is this a problem? i know its just because of the higher protein intake and of course cooked foods digest slower than raw.
how do i get back on the fruit trail? help :( my sugar taste buds are gone!
I agree with kati, eat a pound of salad, then wait a bit and see if you want something sweet
the longer you eat cooked food, the less sensitive your taste buds will be..... usually, or I could say often times, people stop craving sweet when they need extra minerals from tender greens or celery. At first we confuse this craving as needing salt. If you're serious about the lifestyle, go back to fruit and up the greens, be grateful for having the choice to choose what you want to put in your body and hang in there for the first month or so until you are adjusted :) but this is just what I would do, you are free to choose!!! good luck
I would give some green smoothies a go. I use oranges and 1/2 to a pound of greens (generally i will change up the green I use each week or so) . I can only guess in your case , but if I have not been getting in enough greens and water my appetite for sweet can start to drop.
There are no negative health consequences in eating large amounts of plant protein. The problem comes when it's animal protien. Read Collin Campbell's "The China Study" for full details.
try non-sweet fruits. Tomato, Akee, cucumbers, chocolate sapote, prickly pear, peanut butter fruit, etc...
and like others have said; eat lots of mineral rich veggies. If you go on a veggie binge for a while you should start craving sweets in no time..
I call this "hitting the wall" when you pick up a piece of fruit and set it back down without taking a bite thinking "I want something else" and it usually preceeds a "slip" for me.
