I have had pretty bad digestion for a while since starting raw till 4 about 2-3 months ago. Without going into too much detail, i seem to always be bloated to some degree and have a 'clogged up' feeling, and struggle to pass.
I eat 7 bananas + 100g dates for breakfast in a smoothie most days, lunch is usually dried fruit and some fresh fruit and dinner is rice/potatoes/corn pasta with a lot of cooked vegetables. Sometimes i have cornflakes or corn cakes as a snack at night. ((i also drink 1L water upon waking and 2 litres during the day)) I have been eating this way for about 2 months so my digestion should have sorted itself out by now - I'm starting to think i have a serious problem that needs medical attention.
It's kinda killing my hope with this diet, i really want it to work and i know 100% raw would be optimum, but that's not possible in my situation at the moment. I didn't have these problems before raw till 4, eating high fat cooked vegan (however i gained a lot of weight with the high fat o_o - so i don't want to go back to that) plus i know eating lots of cooked carbs wouldn't help my digestion either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :S
squat like as if using a dirty public toilet that you dont want to touch? or like freelee decribes in her book: "Get up and squat on the toilet for a bowel movement! It is unnatural and compromises elimination to assume a seated position. It kinks the bowels. Balance yourself on the bowl" as in like aactually have your feet on the seat?
