Long story short, I was fully raw for awhile then for the last month in half I have been eating rice, potatoes, and hummus for dinner sometimes with my salad.
Almost immediately after I started eating some cooked again I noticed my hair started falling out like crazy! It's gotten so thin, I'm scared it's all going to be gone soon, and I'm known for my super thick hair :(
I'm going to go back to fully raw and see if everything goes back to normal.
Has anyone has problems like these after eating cooked again?
Any help will be appreciated! :)
2 months focusing on 100% raw with lots of WATERY fruit, in the morning (2L of water, watermelon, mangos), heavy fruits and huge salads at night (bananas, tomatoes, lemons).
Out on my bike the other night... a long way from home...1 meal of rice and potatoes...NOW I'M ON DAY 3 OF INTENSE STOMACH PAIN AROUND THE CLOCK like being punched in the stomach while having a rock in there....sooo much movement, pressure, discomfort.I feel like I'm having a baby.......... :( Not a good feeling for a guy. I am not a person who ever gets an upset stomach normally. When I say "I prefer raw over cooked food" its because I can run better, work harder perform better, that's how I normally look at this. But this is insane. I hope in a few more days this goes away.
It's CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Going from raw to eating some cooked food makes the body realllyy angry!!! :O
I know! I never ever thought being fully raw then eating a little bit of cooked food could really do this to my body. It really shows how bad it is after the body becomes so "clean". At least I know I'm not the only one dealing with this!
But the extreme hair loss I'm having is what is really confusing me :(
If you're losing your hair I would immediately check your full stats with a blood test. This could be a major sign of a deficiency.
Make sure they look for Iodine, B12, D, E, and Zinc. Losing your hair is medically not the best scenario to be wondering about without having been tested for deficiencies that can cause this.
There are numerous vitamins and minerals to check for, which is why it is better to cover as wide range as possible. There are frequently some nutrients that are not tested, even in "full" blood tests, so just noted a few examples, not the only ones.
Awesome thank you :)
I'm going to go 100% raw again and if my hair continues falling out after maybe a month I'll go get my blood tested.
Personally, I wouldn't recommend to experiment by how you simply feel or how symptoms progress when deficiencies occur (which seems to be very likely if your hair loss is very noticeable). In a lot of cases for some vitamin/mineral deficiencies, permanent neural damage can occur if the levels of the nutrient are too low in your body. Hope all goes well, and for this to help. Watch out for yourself.
I've never had any issues, and I have a mostly stress free life right now, since I'm not taking any classes during summer. So I definitely need to see if I have any deficiencies.
I have noticed I do have increased itchiness… what are the symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis?
Thank you! :)
its not necessarily the cooked food it may just be the hummus, because its obviously high in fat. Eaten in conjuction with the cooked starches its going to cause problems
