I have been eating this style of eating for about 4 days. HCRV cooked at dinner. Last night I mono ate a melon and had terrible heart burn! The only thing I ate prior to the melon was 5 bananas about 2 hours before. This morning I woke up and had 4 bananas and had bad indigestion again...burning!?! It took about a half hour each time to go away. It burns bad I am looking for a solution. Why would fruit burn so bad? I remember when I was a kid I stopped drinking Coca-Cola because it would have the same effect:(
I do have liver cirrhosis. I haven't found any vegan food that I have been eating for the last years to give me any heart burn except what I just experienced in the last 2 days!
Guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks MangoMan-For about 5 years I have been 95% vegan except for a time when I got real sick. I sleep pretty good...but even if I didn't I have never had hurtburn from any type of vegan mono-eating in the past. This is the first time I have tried eating this much fruit. I want this to work, but that is some painful stuff to have to go through just to eat.
MelissaMixed UP- Good question??? Bananas look all brown but not spotted like I think they should be and the melon seemed soft and tasty but I am not really sure. Why would not ripe fruit BURN my internals...off hand the only thing I remember having this pain with is pop-soda and a big amount of fruit.
I really want 811 to succeed because this seems simple but I haven't ever gotten such bad results so fast from any diet!!! :( well except pop-soda.
I don't want to burn again and without real practical solutions how could I continue doing something that hurts???
it sounds like detox to me. I had some really rough heartburn when I went raw so I feel 4 u. it can very painful n took me off my feet for hrs b4. I really wouldn't go blaming it on fruit. I think ur body is starting to address the problems it has n starting to heal itself. healing can be painful, but very much worth it in the end : ) stay very hydrated and watch what foods u r combining. melons r best eatin in the morning by themselves because they pass through ur system faster then anything else.
Thanks Bobbi for sharing your experience. How could something that is right feel so wrong??? Why would fruit detox me faster than the massive amounts of Vegetables and green veggie juice I drink on the daily??? Thanks for reaching out. So when you started Bobbi you had heart burn and then it went away. I mono eat my fruit and wait proper time before I eat again. I will try eating less and see how that feels. I am looking to be consistent and not in pain:)
I agree with Bobbi on that you should eat watermelon first thing in the morning, rather than at night, since it digests so fast and you don't want it running into anything you ate earlier in the day. Eating it after the bananas could be what is causing you pain. Also, try to eat the watermelon slower than you would usually eat it, and make sure you chew well!
And make sure you are drinking enough water (at least 3L a day).
What kind of cooked foods are you eating at night? This could be part of the problem too.
Elena I hope it goes away. You said it went away for you. It still don't make any sense. I wish someone would know how mono eating fruit following food combining rules and times and still have such a problem does not seem to be a good sign. If it is burning like that it has to be hurting me. It has to be a sign that I am doing something wrong. Like when you put your hand on a hot stove and you pull back...because the body is telling you with pain there is danger. I appreciate you guys trying to help.
I get the same thing if the bananas are overripe and thats the only time I have ever had the heart burn feeling.
You say you had a cooked dinner but don't say what it was. Melons and bananas don't cause heart burn. What was the cooked dinner?
I had the mono-melon about 4 hrs after eating 5 mono-bananas and had painful heartburn. That night about 3 1/2 hrs later I had rice and beans which felt just fine:) about 10 hrs later I had 4 bananas which burned like hell and made me strongly start to second guess this RVHC:( Apparently the melon and bananas caused heartburn unless I am missing something???
