Hello lovely fruities!
So I have been living this lifestyle for quite a few months now, and I was eating very similarly to this before that. I know I have a weak digestive system, but it seems that every time I eat greens or other non-sweet fruits (like tomato, zucchini, cucumber, ect) I get constipated.
Does this happen to anyone else? Any possible solutions?
Thank you guys!
Tomatoes, oranges, pineapples, mushrooms, romaine, carrots, zuchini, cherries, kale, spinach, etc. all cause constipation for me too unless I'm making sure I drink a TON of water.
I generally can't eat alot of citrus yet ( hoping after a year or so on this lifestyle I'll be able too) & if I am going to be eating lots of savory fruits and veggies I just make sure they're in a green smoothie form, juiced ( not often) or I am eating this with other high water content foods. Like carrots and romaine & zuchini to me seem very "dry" so I would eat them with a watery salad dressing ( HCRV of course!) and other fruits that have extra water & then I never have any problems.
Tomatoes are a whole different ball game, they cause me so many issues. but yes even with extra water, tones of exercise etc they still back me up.
Until you get the bacteria relevant to what you are eating up to scratch it seems like there will be a problem.
Bacteria make the stool well-formed as they contain water naturally. Constipation is generally a lack of bacteria, hence the need for additional water that the stool does not have needs to be picked up by drinking
Hey Girls!!! It's funny you should say that. I have been wondering about this too.. I have been having spinach/fruit smoothies, and been feeling stuffed and uncomfy. Finally thinking of skipping the spinach and saving greens for just at night??? Is it possible the greens are too hard to digest in the beginning??? I have been drinking sooo much water I sometimes get nauseated. But adding water to my smoothies doesn't bother me... I am almost 4 months on HCRV :) Wonder if anyone else experiences this???
Have a fruit~y day!,
Different strokes for different folks. Green smoothies have been my saviour and am looking at buying boxes of spinach. I cant finish my smoothie without visiting the crapper. They go straight through me and i feel so good after a litre or so of green goodness. Maybe its a guy thing. Loving my health and vitality after my diet change.
