This week, I haven't been able to afford so much fruit. So, following Durianrider's advice. I turned to cooked carbohydrates, particularly potatoes. After I had potatoes, I felt horrible. It was hell on my digestion. I wasn't taking a dump as often and I still felt bloated and full even after 24 hours of eating it. For years, I would feel bloated after half a portion of a meal. But without the potatoes, I could barely even get 2000 calories, so I continued relying on them until today. I decided that getting in the extra few hundred calories just wasn't worth the discomfort. With all this bloating, I was only able to fit in 500 calories of cooked foods today (I can't buy fruit at the moment). I guess cooked carbs don't work for me as they do for Durianrider.
I will be getting Food Stamp from the U.S. government soon, so I would be able to buy as much fruit as I want without my mom having to spend any money. However, until then, I really don't know what to do and I'm freaking out! Has anybody ever felt this way? Any thoughts on how to handle this situation? Thanks so much! :D
