Hi Shelby, my feeling on the dates is the same. How can eating dates not be good. They are really good for us. 

I actually cannot eat too many, but they are very satisfying. I used to be addicted to sweets, cakes etc. Not anymore. Since on the 811 I can really get messages from the body and it is great!!!

Edit to my post: Certain nutrients found naturally in foods stimulate your body's production of red blood cells resulting in RESOLVING ANY possible anemia and fatigue. I don't see the edit button so I am adding another comment.

Hi Monica,

Dizziness and headches are a common sign that the body is detoxing to get rid of the poisons built up in the system. It usually happens in the first few days and sometimes weeks of fasting or eating a clean diet. It does not necessarily mean one is harming themselves or getting the wrong nutrients rather it is signs of getting healthy. It can also be a sign of dehydration. Make sure plenty of clean water is a part of the diet.

Check your blood pressure while sitting and then standing to see if it a BP issue. If the blood pressure drops suddenly on rising it is called orthostatic hypotension. This can be helped by getting up more slowly than rising up suddenly. This can also happen when one has eaten a heavy meal and the body is diverting the blood to the abdomen area so the brain doesn't get nourished. People eating the SAD diet also get this so it might not be just related to fruit meals though it can happen for you as an individual. If one is dehydrated there is not enough blood volume to fully fill the blood vessels and the whole body can be affected not just the brain. Pinch the skin on the back of your hands and forearm. If it snaps back quickly it is OK. If the skin tents or very slowly returns to normal these are signs of dehydration. Drink more fluids eat more watery foods like cucumbers and watermelon.

Another possibility if there are also signs of fatigue, pale face, frequently feeling cold, the tongue is pale, the lower eyelid is very pale pink or white it might be signs of a blood deficiency. The poor mans anemia test is to press on the unpolished fingernail hard for 2 seconds until the nail bed turns white and then release. It should refill in 1-2 seconds. The longer it takes for the color to come back into the nail bed fully .. one might be anemic or becoming blood deficient.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) a blood deficiency can be diagnosed with or without an iron deficiency by western blood tests (as often we can catch conditions before the medical tests get to the "dis-eased state where MD's treat accoding to lab work results). Women are especially prone to blood deficiency if they have a history of heavy periods.

Certain nutrients found naturally in foods stimulate your body's production of red blood cells resulting in possible anemia and fatigue.

Eating foods rich in iron would help. Some Qi (energy) and Blood nourishing foods are: spinach, broccoli, cabbage, watercress, mushrooms, peas, dates, apricots, sweet potatoes, figs, prunes, asparagus, bananas, cherries, all berries, grapes and nuts and seeds like almonds, walnuts and sesame seeds. Try to eat a wide and colorful range of fruit and  vegetables to get plenty of nutrients. Red foods like goji berries, beets, and deep green leafy vegetables build the Blood. Moist vegetables such as cucumbers and celery are helpful to nourish the kidney meridian energy channel. I hope this helps.

HereKittyKitty, Thank you for the video on dates and denser fruits. Informative.  Sometime I do feel sluggish after eating them, but not all the time.  Will experiment more with higher water content fruits.

Jimmy, I chose to eat dates to keep my calories up.  And they are very nutritious from what I have read on 30BAD.

Lekoma. Have the doco already. I know he was full of energy on just juices etc and had a few healing crisis days. Perhaps it is a detox for me when I get headspins. Some days I undereat as I don't have the food so it can also be lack of fuel. I mainly go for bananas, dates, avocados, rocket, pears and mangoes. Some raw mixed nuts too and a multiv.
