30 Bananas a Day!

specific diets prescribed by hygiene doctors after fasting????

so im curious as to why some hygiene doctors prescribe different diets for individuals breaking fast like in Joel Fuhrmans  book fasting and eating for health he talks about prescribing a diet low in starch and raw fruits and high in stewed veggies due to the clients inability to digest the fruits and starches(just one example of a prescribed diet to a patient suffering from colitis)  now i under stand that some doctors do urine sampling right after consuming one type of whole food to see if the body is metabolizing it and that's how doctors like mr. Fuhrman create a temporary low fat vegan specific diet for the clientele ( i can't say for certain but i think all hygiene doctors are all about the low fat vegan based diets). another example is about a patient Dr. Scott had after this patient fast the only things his body could digest were steamed zucchini and potatoes. why is it that these individuals could not consume any fruit what so ever? or where there fruit options that where just over looked? Dr. D stats in 80/10/10 that you are what you digest. and i understand that some clients have trouble digesting certain things but i find it hard to believe that fruits would irritate your system and could contribute to a recurrence of an illness

great question... I'm mid fast right now and am planning to break my fast by easing onto watermellon.  Does anyone else have any other suggestions or tips for breaking fasts?
this would be a disappointment if no one else could enlighten me on this topic especially some of the members who have an interest in hygiene
i think it is an important question that should not be overlooked especially to those so interested in biology
let me clear this up....the fast is broken with juice till things get going again of course some one to jump right into cooked food after fasting can have harmful effects on the body im am specifically talking about a prescribed diet after the fast wich fuhrman had prescribed to the patient as i mentioned above as an example and if you have been studying NH then you know about the urine test i mentioned above

Doug Graham breaks fasts on whole fruits. most hygienists use juices to break the fast. I think this is a mistake. all animals in nature break fasts on what is available to them. There are no refined foods in nature. Only whole foods. We need to make sure we minimise the shock to the pancreas and digestive system, by choosing fruits that are high in water and fibre and not too high in calories per gram. Watermelon is an ideal first choice imo, followed by honeydew and piel de sapo as secondary choices. Cantaloupe and galia melons would be a third choice and papaya would be a fourth place choice.

 

Some people may have more trouble with the sugar after a fast than others. I remember one woman on our fast.  She was fine with watermelon in the morning, but come lunch time, she didnt want much sweet stuff. She just wanted cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, lettuce, things like that. In the evening, she was ok to have some fruit again but always made plenty of room for cucumbers, celery, tomatoes and lettuce afterwards.

It took her a while to up her fruit intake at lunch, but she did, although she continued having lots of greens with her lunch.

 

I think that large amounts of fruits too soon would be a bad idea (ie. in the first couple of days). Its best to stick with melon for 3 days and to have small amounts. Not regular sized portions. But you build that up over time and can deal with it fine usually.

this is one example of your experience....but from what i have been reading some peoples body could not handle fruits and where given cooked foods(the example of Dr. Scott recommending steamed potatoes and zucchini because the patient that had just recently broke the fast(on veggie and fruit juice of course) couldn't break anything else down im not so much talking about breaking a fast as much as im talking about a persons ability to digest foods after a fast has been properly broken

why is it that these individuals could not consume any fruit what so ever?

 

unripe fruit will not digest well. few people know when fruit is truly ripe. I don't buy that cooked zucchini or potato would be easier to digest than a ripe watermelon, there's nothing easier to digest than ripe fruit.

thats what i couldn't understand but Dr. Scott has supervised over 20,000 fast has been in the field for years he has a website with an interview and i know three people that have gone to his clinic so i dont doubt his knowledge and understanding of the human body and diet. fruit is the easiest food to digest  but are there certain circumstances for particular individuals?

These are questions you should probably pose to hygienists rather than to us. We have no experience supervising fasting. Doug has been supervising fasts for 2 decades and has always had clients re-feed on fruit without problems. Same with Loren Lockman. Nicholas Tancheff also refeeds people on fruit. I think as B says, it may depend on factors such as ripeness, specific fruit types (saying they didnt do well on fruit isnt saying much since there is a lot of variety with fruit. If for example, you are talking about bananas, I can see why he would think that. I struggled to eat bananas after my fast during my first week and a half. I could only eat about 4-5 and that was a struggle. They tasted unbearably sweet. but I was ok with banana smoothies. I preferred melon and mango initially whilst my tolerance to the amount of sugar my pancreas was processing built up after the fast.

 

Personally, I think melons should be the focal point for the first week or two and juices should not be given at all. These will overstimulate the pancreas more than the fruit (at least the fruit juices will, not so much the veggie juices).

 

Take care

i appreciate the info folks it is very lovely to get insight from others when Dr. Scott opens the institute again i will send him an email regarding this questions i also briefly skimmed Herbert Shelton's book the science and fine art of fasting and he briefly talked about giving 3 fruit meals a day to patients after fasting. i hope i can get a response though i dont think some people take me to seriously when i ask questions like this i recently sent an email to true north clinic on oxidization to see if any of the doctors there had any idea how how fast some foods lose there nutritional value and i did not get any response back :(
