Hey! Are you properly combining your food? That would be my first instinct as to why you're getting this problem. Maybe you could give an example of a day's food so it would be easier to tell what the problem is exactly.
Also, are you drinking plenty of water (but not with your fruit meals)?
Don't worry too much about this though. I'm sure after a while it'll just go away anyway.
Hi Gessell! I had that problem too but I found that the bloating just goes away after your stomach gets used to the raw food volume. If you have the 811 book, you should already know that since cooked foods contain more calories per volume the stomach isn't used to the same amount of calories of fruit. The stomach, however, will slowly learn to stretch to hold more volume.
You also mentioned that you're not fully 811 yet, so it could also be the other foods that are holding your digestion back...
Another thing I have just learned recently that it's better to get your greens in throughout the day rather than to have a really large salad dinner. I've started to eat earlier before dusk so I don't go to sleep very bloated and uncomfortable.
In terms of the discomfort, give a week or so, that's how long it took me to get used to it. Keep in mind that you'll still get the Buddha belly even after your stomach adapts. Even the long term lfrv get it after a big savory meal, so like I said before, if you feel embarrassed looking like that then it's just better to get your greens in during the day by green smoothie or direct consumption and have a smaller salad at dinner.
Hmm, I've only had a bloated belly after eating a meal of apples and then some cauliflower, lol. Keeping hydrated between meals, sticking to high sugar fruit and consequently upping my exercise (thanks to all the good energy) has worked for me.
Yup I expected it when I ate them :p
