30 Bananas a Day!

I've been loving 30bad. Mostly a welcoming and informative place. I have been shy about asking for help but I just wanted to share. A huge transition happened after I started eating fruit. (didn't understand how important is was, was encouraged by raw food "experts" to avoid it, etc.) I read 80/10/10 and it really makes sense.

I started eliminating cooked foods from my diet (except corn) I feel like I have control over my body now for the first time since I can remember because I am not always having a major food hangover and aways feeling ill & totally weak from sensitivities.

Because I'm not "allergic" to corn, It is the only cooked item I don't want to give up. I know corn is not ideal being processed and GMO even though it's organic. I think the biggest road block is chronic fatigue issues that I suspect are related to adrenal fatigue and some issues with my kidneys or liver being that I break out very easily and green juice is the only think that keeps it at bay along with a lot of rest.  I know LFRV would help this but I am stuggling to get to that point

I don't expect to give up cooked foods overnight but if anyone has any insight they'd like to share maybe they have some similar experiences. I'd love to speed up the process but don't want to beat myself up. I'm thinking maybe a blood test would be a good idea to see if there is something I am very deficient in.. I just got a b12 shot and will be getting some more. Thanks for reading.

Thank you CTW, I will try the watermelon, I did notice a good response when I was eating a lot of them in the summer so that makes sense. I know the logic is flawed, I think it comes from being undercarbed when I don't want to eat so much fruit, It seems to be a real challenge for me in the winter but a work in progress.

My own experience with chronic fatigue was due to glandular weaknesses (adrenal and thyroid). I learned this through iridology. Once I realized this was the case, I could focus on eating foods and herbs that are good for those glands. So my advice would be to see a naturopath who does iridology. He/she will be able to pin point exactly what is wrong. It really helped me.

I found that the further along you get, the harder and harder it is to go back to anything unhealthy, even if you want to, it becomes less of an option. Taste buds change and you become more sensitive, and as health problems go away you may find yourself less and less tolerant of any discomfort. I put up with severe heartburn for years and never tried to do anything about it, just accepted it, now that I know I have a choice to avoid it there is no way I would tolerate it these days. 

 

Maybe if you can force yourself to follow the diet 100% just for a few days it will help, sometimes you gotta do things like trash unhealthy crap, just do it quick and get it over with, don't think, just drop that corn in the trash and walk away. 

 

I definitely think once you commit to the idea of doing it 100% and get close enough, the rest of the transition is inevitable. 

Thank you, I will go for it. I am pet sitting right now and sort of stranded for a week but I really want to ditch the cooked food. I did it for a few days in the summer and got overwhelmed and undercarbed but if I plan better I think I'm capable. I will also be googling iridology, thanks.

You're right, Yes I think I am addicted in a way. Or you could look at is as just being under carbed, not addicted. I'm not being to hard on myself because that's what I always did in the past when I was consumed by my food sensitivities and punished myself for not understanding what was really happening.. I know I need to make more changes so I figured posting would keep me feeling like I'm held accountable. I am signed in to cronometer which I do need to be implementing. I am so grateful for the support here, 30 bad is so wonderful.

Congrats! I been on this road for almost 20 years....take your time. We all have a lot of healing to do....corn's lovely raw too....yum yum.

 

Best of luck, it sounds like u're truly on the path that follows your heart, body and spirit. :)

Thank you, that means a lot!

 

I really found that just "carbing up" (or simply getting sufficient calories in general, plus ensuring you're not succumbing to salt/sodium cravings (these caused my first 100% drop off of raw, now I just sparingly use sea salt if I feel them), ... will probably mean you don't get cravings :)

Although I think if you must eat a cooked carb, sweet potato seems to be king! hehe

Wild rice might be ok too.

But I too agree they're suboptimal and as usual, raw is best!

I wish you luck and well done on your progress so far!
