Does anyone out there have any thoughts on why I have experienced stomach aches and toothaches immediately after starting 811 for 3 days? I had to go off it because I wasn't enjoying these sensations at all. I was told that transitioning to 811 can cause the stomach aches and also the acidity in unripe fruit can cause toothaches. Any other thoughts on why I have been experiencing this and what to do about it would be helpful. Thanks!!
Eating too much fruit at once when your not used to it can cause a strong stomach pain radiating into the back. I'm about a month in and it's not as bad now.
I've heard some say that blending fruit and drinking it causes a lax stomach and more pain than just chewing the fruit. Watermelon can be the worst, too many dates or bananas for me can do it. Drinking water while eating plays a role, not sure how.
Read this thread about teeth, http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/what-is-your-dental-hygie...
I notice my teeth hurt and feel sensitive if I eat too many nuts.
Nuts are high in fat, I heard something about high fat foods and the bacteria in your mouth causing trouble.
Freelee said something about it somewhere
811 is just 80/10/10's shortened name. It means you are trying to take in your caloronutrients for the day in an 80% carbohydrate 10% fat 10% protein ratio (I might of mixed the order up on that). It is the definition of HCRV for most of the people on this site.
811 is the shortened version of Dr. Graham's 80-10-10 philosophy, meaning a diet with 80% of calories from carbs (from fruit and veg optimal), 10% from fat and 10% from protein (organic plant sources optimal for all three).
I have heard things about recalcifying with greens after eating fruit, maybe something to search on these forums. Were you eating large fruit meals? If yes, maybe going with smaller meals throughout the day until your stomach is used to the volume fruit eating entails. Extra rest and fluids during transition are important, too.
thanks Mary! yes, I started eating the amount Doug (the author) had recommended. So, huge fruit mono meals for breakfast.
That sounds great. I have always found that the more calories I get in in the morning, the better the day goes.
Eat a handful of greens after each and every fruit meal. Chew it thoroughly. This will help to alkalize your saliva and clean off the fruit sugars. You don't want that fruit sugar hanging around on your teeth for hours. Nor do you want an "enamel holocaust" which is what happens if you brush after every single meal.
You seem to have a lot of simple answers that make sense to me, I'll have to buy some more greens and try this.
