Hello friends! I haven't posted anything about my digestion lately because it's all over the place. Some days will be good and then some horrid, with less good days than bad.
I have been vegan for 4 months, was first Rawtil4 then slowly switched to like 99% raw. I was hoping to eventually simplify it down to 801010. I would eat cooked veggies sometimes, but always with a lot of raw food. While being RawTil4 my body did not like me combining a lot of fruit with a lot of starch, so that's why I went raw. I felt a little better but I am still having constipation and a lot of gas, and leaky gut all at the same time... I am wondering now if I would do better following the starch based diet. I believe my body can only handle one type of carb (fruit or cooked starch) in excess at a time. I feel it may be easier because Starch Solution would be similar to my diet before going vegan, minus the animal products and unhealthy fats and salt. This time I would follow the McDougall plan. Dr Mcdougall also gives less of a quantity to eat, so it seems more reasonable that way. I do still get uncomfortable after a huge fruit meal, maybe it just isn't right for me? I find the social aspects of my life may improve with SS, I won't always have to worry about having ripe fruit. It is cheaper. Also I live in Canada, so it's definitely not the tropics (which is the ideal place for a fruitarian).
Has anyone else had a similar experience or any advice?
