so i've been doing well thus far for the most part, but tonight i just couldn't take anymore fruit. does anyone get this? i'm not a big fan of bananas as it is, and dates hurt my teeth. i made myself 3 liters of a banana-strawberry-blueberry-mango smoothie, which i drank throughout the day in class (5hr class), and it was good, but i just couldn't take anymore sugar. My tongue began to develop a white coating and i was losing sensation in it. This happens whenever i eat too much sugar, i think its related to candida(?). I also was feeling absolutely wiped at this point (i know, probably not enough fruit) I tried munching on a bell pepper but it was too sweet too. I have to be honest, my mom make a fresh batch of veg beans and rice, and i ate two cups of it. and i felt better after eating it. i need some advice fellow hcrvs, what do i eat when i get sick of fruit? what can i bring to school to eat other than enormous amounts of smoothies?
And i felt like you, but everytime i fall i quikly stand up again and continue to progress. i also crave sometimes greens, salad , i get "boring" by so much sweet, but it is worsening because greens are even less in calories. And when i don't get enough -i dont crave just greens but worse- cooked food. I think is just the body getting rid of toxins so it's a matter of time and beeing consistent with 811.
Hey Alyson, by now you've probably found your way back on the wagon. But just wanted to bring up two other things: activity level and water intake. When either of these things gets low I find my desire and tolerance of sweet fruit, along with energy levels wanes. No doubt in part because both are crucial for toxin removal from our system.
In terms of other foods - I'd go with green smoothies - just A banana and all manner of green veg. Salads obviously a good deal too. A lack of greens may also be contributing to an unbalanced system - you didn't mention your other food intake.
