30 Bananas a Day!

I just got back from eating lunch with my Dad. We ended up at a restaurant that I hadn't been to since transitioning to 811. I do still eat SOME cooked foods like brown rice, just with zero oil and zero salt added. I thought, "Well, I can just order the thing I used to order, only with no cheese and no sour cream. I'll be fine."











About three bites into my meal, I knew the food was WAY too greasy. And incredibly salty. It was really awful. To say that it was nasty was an understatement. I simply did NOT remember the food being that way. At ALL. Probably because back then, I couldn't tell the freaking difference. HA!


I ate part of the meal but left a lot of it, because I just couldn't go on, no matter how hungry I was. The nausea kicked in almost immediately, and I had to fight puking the whole way home. Once home, I DID puke. I hate puking.


This was a serious wakeup call that I can no longer get away with "just one more social meal" with my parents, even a modified one. This has been a real source of distress for me because ever since my parents got divorced 31 years ago, my dad has taken me out to eat. Especially since Dad is going to be 83 soon and has a really bad knee, most physical activities are not possible with him now to recenter our social life.


From now on, we're going to have to go places that serve salad, and I'm simply going to have to stick to eating that and that alone. The days of social meals consisting of anything else (other than fruit) are simply over. The body has spoken. Well, at least I got the message before another organ failed this time. Sigh.


So final verdict: Calories at home, social salads and fruit bowls ONLY when eating out. The Body Has Spoken.


I guess the one good thing about all this is, it seems my transition period is over. LOL

Thanks for all the comments everyone!

Elias, my dad hates to eat outside because he has this thing about bugs and his food. BUT, your comment made me start thinking about other ways to spend time with my dad, so thanks for speaking up. :)

Ashley: I think it has a lot more to do with the fact that I have no gallbladder and a looong history of digestion problems. LOL Trust me, this bod has a long way to go before then. I don't want to get hung up on "purity" stuff, either. I think it can lead down a dark road if unchecked. I know that's not what you were meaning, but truly, I think I just ate a gross-out meal. LOL

Kate: I agree with you, there is a certain "good yet bad thing" about bad-for-you foods not sitting well. It's a very easy way to quit eating that stuff. "Huh. I puke every time I eat Mexican. Solution: Quit eating Mexican." LOL

It's also nice to know I'm not the only one struggling with social eating. I am getting ready to do a new video today, and that will be one of the subjects. I have a strategy to help me decide what to eat when, and what to eat at certain restaurants.

The social food thing has always been my biggest hurdle, best of luck to you in the future Rachel. I'm getting better and better at ordering fruit and salads when I go out with friends and family, so I know it can be done.You go girl!!

But wow your body must be PURE to already be throwing up and feeling so bad after a little cooked/greasy food!


Good job!
