30 Bananas a Day!

Banana Intolerance or something like that :/

So very recently i discovered that my body doesn't like bananas very much. I love bananas i ate a lot of them but ever since i started this diet i noticed that i was extremely bloated and after 2 months doing everything right or almost right i should have seen at least some improvement but then one day i ran out of bananas and only ate like two in one day and i immediately noticed a less bloated belly, a then i made an experiment lets try not eating bananas for a couple of days and.....i should of thought of this earlier i noticed now that not only my belly was bloated but also my whole body :O, my skin is also a lot better and my hair as well, because i was also having a big crises of dandruff or something. All is good now, although i think i'm going through a bit of a detox phase...

I wonder...maybe i have slow digestion or some kind of problem in my bowels that i'm not aware of, i do notice that every time i eat i get a big belly and it takes hours to come down, the only time of the day that i'am flatter is when i wake up because as soon as i start drinking water and eating forget it it just starts bloating and stays bloated for the rest of the day, and it's basically my lower abdomen that starts bloating is it normal? it's too low to be a problem in the stomach...

Paxkey your experience sounds wonderful, it reminds of my grandfather stories, he said he had mangoes growing all over the place when he was a child and he would just eat right from the tree with the skin and everything. i guess few of us ever get to know what fruit really tastes like maybe in the future our cities will "decorated" with fruit trees and they will be all over the place, far future though :)

@ Fluffy White Rabbit... My doctor is a Naturopath, Homeopath, Massage Therapist, Acupuncturist, Laser Therapist, Nutritionist, and a Medical Doctor.  She helped me with advanced techniques of massage therapy to push the hiatal hernia back in place.

after travelling 3 months in central america i have had the chance to eat many fruit directly off the tree. bananas not included. what i have noticed is that fruit that is perfectly ready to eat off the tree is almost a completely different thing.

i had eaten hundreds of papayas but when i ate one that was picked ready off the tree i discovered that i never knew what a papaya was really supposed to taste like.

nothing at the supermarket has been given its proper ripening time including organic bananas. i would be interested to know what chemical analysis would show if comparing supermarket fruit vs. perfect tree ripened fruit. i suspect the supermarket fruit would be deficient in its protein and fat content.

i have also learned that supermarket fruit is chosen because of its ability to 'ripen' somewhat well off the tree. most edible fruit cannot make it to the supermarket at all because it is inedible picked early. ever ate a cashew apple, or a calabash? probably not because you must eat them off the tree when they are ready to eat. picked early not edible. even organic bananas are picked early, gassed and refrigerated for the supermarket shelf.

i suspect that tree ripened fruit in abundance and variety provides a complete diet for human nutrition while supermarket fruit does not.

ps. perfectly ripened papayas taste like candied yam. i can barely eat supermarket papayas now after eating a proper one.

Hi Kevin Dorsch! How did you manage to heal hiatal hernia? What kind of doctor helped you?

Comment by Kevin Dorsch on August 10, 2012 at 1:27am

I love bananas and have no issues with them, BUT.... I have still done my research on them and even though they are great for you, they are mucous forming. If you have any digestive issues and have inflammation in your bowels you will have a bad reaction to them. Especially if you have a hiatal hernia. I know. I have one. The only reason I stopped having a problem was because I found a doctor that helped me to put it back in place (without surgery) and since then I have no issues. My mom had a ballooned and slightly prolapsed transverse colon and eating fruit helped her to heal. She now can eat more bananas without the side effects.

wow apple, you know i'm also starting to suspect pineapple i get in a similar state when i eat it!! :o
It really is weird that some us of can't eat bananas, although eating little bits at time to build resistance makes sense but i'm also like you :) ,  i didn't know about the high histamine levels....still something to think about i think i'll just go without eating it for a couple of months and then try to eat one to see what happens.
So yeah Thank God for all the other fruits, i'm really loving my peaches right now :D

Thank you :]

Thanks for all the comments guys :)

yes they were spotty and smelled sweet, i also thought that i wasn't drinking enough water but even when i increased the quantities it didn't help... Also exercising did bring some relief but by the end of the day i still had a big melon belly...
I occasionally run, i do yoga almost everyday and my job consists of walking about 5km per day and that wasn't making any difference.i had a belly that looked like i was 4 months pregnant! i even noticed my legs were larger, well now i haven't eaten bananas for a week and my legs are half the size and my belly is almost flat most of the time...

Hey... same thing happened with me and nanas, even super ripe organic :/ I still get bloat~y, water retentive, and actually get lil bumps all over my neck whenever I eat nanas...and pineapple  Not sure why its those two fruits??? :( I am hoping the reactions I get will go away in time. I sometimes thought it was just coincidence, but unfortunately not. They say you can do the homeopathic way of eating a teenie tiny amount everyday, to build up some kinda tolerance to it? But I have yet to try it.. I am not good at consuming small increments of food :)  

 I really wonder why some of us can't have nanas??? I read once, they have a higher level of histamine in them then other fruits.. which I am allergic to, so I'm not sure if that's??? But that is all I could come up with.... And I am super allergic to bees, which I think is because your body releases a high amount is histamine, I swell up, my throat closes in a mater of minutes, so i have my epi~pen handy at all times, soooo maybe there's something to it?? I dunno, who knows...

 Thank God for alllll the other yummy fruits in the world! Apples, peaches, oranges, grapefruit, dates, melons, berries :)))  

 Glad your feeling better though! ;)

I agree with the bananas preferably being organic. I bloat with conventional, too. Also, do some running. It helps with bloating and releasing ;)

Were the bananas ripe (spotty)? Because unripe bananas definitely cause constipation. But drinking water helps, too. Bananas are less watery than other fruits, and don't keep up hydration as well.
