30 Bananas a Day!

Hi Everyone! A little over a week ago, I posted about how my acne was getting worse since following a high raw fruit diet. Since being back home, I have switched over to cooked food/starches. A typical day is usually a fruit meal for breakfast and lunch, sometimes oatmeal for lunch, and for dinner is usually lots of greens and rice, or potatoes, etc. I decided to switch over to cooked food bc high quality fruit isn't so available and when it is, its pretty expensive. Here is what I have noticed since switching to cooked food: 

- My first day of eating cooked foods, I threw up for the first time in years

- My acne is worse than before, mostly on my forehead, temples, and chin

- I have a cold

- Very sore throat

- Sneezing a lot 

I am not sure if this is my body getting used to eating cooked foods again. I was only raw for about a month so I can't imagine these symptoms could come after such a short period of raw. Also, I switched to cooked food at the same time that I got back from 20 hours of traveling so maybe my flu like symptoms are also a result of flying/travel and adjusting to a new climate.

If I could, I would go back to raw, but right now, having starches are easier for me. Will my body readjust to eating cooked foods? And maybe my acne is just my body getting used to the food? I hope so, bc its whats available for me. I should also add that im not eating any processed foods, no oil, very low fat, lots of water, just whole plant foods and greens. I also stopped washing my face with anything and just using water.

Would love any advice on what I can do to speed up the acne clearing/how to get over these flu like symptoms :)

@Dominic thanks so much for the reply..Yeah I got over the sickness pretty quickly but still trying to heal the acne. Ill definitely keep the food combining in mind and see if that helps. Its good to know that its not the cooked food causing the acne.

P.S. - A big salad of tender lettuce after a cooked meal helps it digest better.

You will acclimate to cooked food in a week or so.  The sickness and acne is most likely from the stress of traveling and being in a new environment.  Adding some ginger, turmeric, or garlic to your food or tea will help you recover from being sick.  Also, be very conscious of food combining.  That's the most important thing besides stress for my skin health.  Besides that just give it time and rest.
