I definitely agree with Katie. Just make sure you are properly food combining because for me, it affects how I feel throughout the day. But believe me, you're not the only one who's packing in the carbs! :)
Yes the unlimited carbs goes for cooked carbs too! :D
Excellent info. Thank you!
I'm 54kg also and have gained 6kgs over the past 3 months since upping my intake (average around 2000). How can you manage to get in so many calories? I find it so hard to even reach the minimum recommendation of 2500. I'm trying to include more raw as cooked carbs don't work well for my digestion. But with a busy schedule like yous how is it possible to consume 5000-5500 without feeling so bloated?
don't worry you're not alone! I was like: Finally :) when I read your post here. I can also eat, eat and eat and not feel really replete. Even after 2000 calories. The only thing that bothers me at the moment is that my belly won't get flat again after eating or even over night... I'm trying fully raw at the moment (since 4 days) but it won't get any better. Seems to have nothing to do with the cooked carbs I ate before. Do you have a flat stomach few hours after a meal or in the morning after waking up?
Yeah I do follow the food combining rules, I really don't know what's it about ... I often find the food combining rules very different though from page to page .. they're not the same everywhere you look. I've also noticed Freelee putting bananas and strawberries (sweet and acid fruit?) together in a smoothie, which actually doesn't go together does it?
I'm not quiet sure about bananas and grapes, I do eat them a lot together...
and also: some people say that tomatos do not combine well with starches BUT Freelee always eats corn pasta with tomato sauce .. so I' a bit confused about that ..
Oh and maybe you know if there's like a time you should pause between the meals? I only know that you should wait half an hour after drinking water before you start eating, but what about after eating? When can you start drinking water again and eat the next meal?
Sorry tons of questions :D but the puffed belly really frustrates me ... just looking for reasons
