Okay so for some reason I just can't get enough of oranges right now. I'm craving them. I've been trying the raw vegan diet for almost a month (unfortunately I've had a few slip ups, and have eaten three cooked meals. ugh) but anyway, I find that especially around three a clock in the afternoon, I am really craving oranges and actually I just sat down and had a meal of just oranges. I just ate nine of them! That just seems like alot!!
Is it okay to eat that many in one sitting?
As long as you feel satiated after your orange meal, there is nothing to worry about :)
I do! I feel good after it. I feel satisfied. Thank you for replying. That makes me feel better. (and oh lord so many typos in my original post! haha!)
Thank you so much!! Yes, I'm not going to worry about it then. That's been a struggle for me starting this diet, is being comfortable with the fact that it's OKAY to eat a large amount of one fruit. I kept feeling very hesitant to eat so much at one sitting but the more I learn about this way of eating, the more I realize that everyone is having large amounts, so I don't need to worry about it.
Oranges for mono-meals are wonderful!! I can easily eat 10 - 16 oranges in one sitting - so if you like them, go for it ;D
Well, oranges tend to be watery and juicy, meaning while they look big, what is actually being digested is much smaller. Many of them may only be 50 calories a piece. So 9 oranges is about 450 calories. That is a small meal or a nice snack just as you described.
I am an orange fanatic and many days may eat at least one mono meal of them. Right now, I have some sweet juicy babies from California. Yumm!
Thats good stuff have fun with it.
Weird thing I have noticed. Nobody every asks if it is OK to eat butt loads of junk food.
example. 2 lb bag of mm. Super size me. 4 liters of soda a day. Big bags of chips soaked in Hydr oil.
But when it comes healthy food, or food that is good for you people want to check with their Doc first.
I thry to think about that from time to time. Mother nature knows more then Corporate America.
I gotta get my Oranges delivered from Florida. The ones in the store up here I can barely stand
in a smoothie.
