Hi! I'm from Sweden and I'm new here. I hope you understand my not perfect English;)
I know there are others here who have experienced intolerance to bananas. My facial skin begins to itch and burn when I eat bananas and this feels very sad. There is no giant access to organic fruits here in Sweden and bananas are the only thing I can afford to buy organic in larger amounts. There is no giant access to non-organic fruit either. Most of it is of course imported and the only Swedish fruit available include apples (and sometimes plums and pears), which I do not feel good when I eat. And it's only for short periods of the year.
I once had a banana intolerance the first 3 months of being on the diet. I had the same reactions you were having. I stopped eating it for about 2 months, which was not easy, but after the 2 month period I reintroduced it and now I have no issues. I'm 10 months in the diet and eating all the bananas I want without an issue.
I remember posting a while back the same concern and someone told me that eventually the intolerance goes away as the body heals. It's so true. Eventually you'll be able to eat as much as you'd like without any issues. Best of luck!
Thank you! Good to hear that you can eat them again! I hope I can do it too soon.
I have diagnosed oral allergy syndrome...so allergic to all fruits and veggies almost etc...did you notice that you are fine now with your allergy symptoms...and eat fully raw...or what kind of lifestyle do you follow now?! I WOULD LOVE any help!
I used not to be able to eat bananas - it was really tough, like you said, to eat cheaply without them, but it is still possible, and very worth it in the end! I can eat 60 a day now no problem! How do you get on with dates? These make a good alternative, as do grapes. Good luck with everything, Esperanza xxx
Yes, it's really tough, but I'll not give upp this. I have to find other alternatives. I think I will eat a lot of pears and dates instead and I have to ignore the organic fruit for a while.. Thank you for your help!
Are grapes high in calories? I eat a huge bagful for a meal every day, and would love to eat more! I am also allergic to bananas, which sucks. And the first two years eating this way I ate them anyways because I wanted to get enough calories, but as soon as I stopped them, my facial acne went away completely. introduce=acne. take away=clear skin. How many grapes would I need for a suitable replacement?
I have this same problem..but not just banana but with MANY FOODS. Do you find a cure yet>
Thank for your good explanations, it's very helpful!
Good to hear about your experiences! Thanks! Yes, my body is very broken and the immune system too...but I am sure I can repair it:)
Thanks :) I'm very unsure about grammar when I write. When I talk I do not care so much, I just talk. But I guess people understand what I write even if it does not get it right everywhere :)
