View Full Version : Mono eating FRUITS!!!
07-09-2006, 02:46 PM
Well, I went on a pineapple kick for about a month, ate mostly pineapple, then mango, then strawberries, then cherries, watermelon, now i"m into fresh coconut, third day eating it now, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
it's funny, All I want to eat is fruit.
Oh, I've had some mini pizza, just one slice, and I've had a burger, again, one quarter of one, and I've had a couple of nut dishes, but about 1/4 to 1/8 what I usually eat, because mostly I'm eating fruits.
it just "feels" right, at this moment, I don't know if it is because it is summer, or a detox thing, or a transitional thing, or what, but fruit feels right.
so that is what I'm eating.
how about you?
anyone out there almost mono-eating on a specific fruit?
what are you eating?

Organic Fuji Apples! Right now I'm juice fasting, but I still can't get enough of them. Freshly juiced apples are sooo good. Last time it was grapes. Frozen, fresh, juiced..It's allll good!
:D :D :D

I think that you eat what your body is wanting. And if its fruit, so be it!
I ate watermelon for three 3 days! Since its 105 here at home, it was just all I wanted. Then at the end of the little 'binge' I was craving greens and am now back on fruit.! Eat it as long as its Raw!! :)

Yes my children (2 & 6) are and their mono eating goes on for a few weeks at a time. They are eating extra light at the moment (its hot) just fruits and a bit of salad & green smoothie - and I think that fine.
I first noticed this with my little one. He would only eat cucumbers and grape tomatos; now he will not touch them with a ten foot poll. Now hoovering grapes & oranges.
My daughter is on an apples, grapes & oranges kick and has been for the last month.
I got a HUGE flat of raspberries at Costco yesterday (for only $9!!!) and it is ALL gone.
I too am trying to follow this way of eating, I think it's great!
Well done RP - you are an inspiration!! :p

Yup! I've been consulting with Dr. Graham, and he has me on a week of bananas only, so that's what I've been doing. I'm on day 2 1/2....

If I could chose, I probably would have been eating mostly mangoes and blueberries and oranges...depending on the day...too bad I don't have any of these things available. oh, or strawberries....mmmm. I've been dying for cherries, haven't had them in years. *sigh*

I'm loving melons, grapes, melons, and cherries right now! I think I'm going to start a month or so of mono eating, since it is such a great time of year for it. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Bethany- I see that you are consulting with Dr. Graham right now. I'm also a huge fan and follower of Dr. Graham and his teaching. I'm just wondering if you mind sharing with me what he's helping you with right now and why he has suggested the bananas. Feel free to email me privately if you prefer:
Thanks so much!

I just can't resist having mandarines every day, in big quantities. Before the mandarines phase, there was grapes phase. I seem to going through phases all the time. :)

I'm eating organic nectarines like crazy. I just can't stop eating them! I'm going to go get one right now, in fact.

I'm eating organic nectarines like crazy. I just can't stop eating them! I'm going to go get one right now, in fact.Whoa, this is my answer exactly. The yellow ones. Chilled and eaten over the sink while it dribbles down my face :o

Also avocados interestingly enough... and my skin looks fab!

OMG, I am so onto Cantaloupe. Let's just say I have two produce guys from two stores that are setting them aside for me on a daily basis. It's a given to them as soon as I walk in :p hee hee.

Coconuts!! I'm passing a kidney stone, so my body is begging for them!
07-09-2006, 11:49 PM
No I cannot eat just one thing. I eat whatever is in season. Right now EVERYTHING is in season. So if I only eat 1 or 2 things, I would miss out on a wonderful Summer, plus it would seem like I was on a Diet.
That is what is so great about this journey...........If it works for you.........

I can't get enough of canteloupe and watemelon. At work, they have the precut watermelon and canteloupe. I had to buy more. I even bought a whole watermelon...just for me to eat.

I can't get enough cherries or coconut, actually they taste great together,
but I eat one then the other, then one then the other.
Yummy, I love coconut, but I'm not eating the young Thai ones, I'm eating the brown ones, they are soooooo yummy
07-10-2006, 01:11 AM
Me too RP.. Cherries and coconuts!!! If you have read my journal, you'll see that I've been craving cherries since last season. Now that they're out, I can't get enough of them.
I LOVE UFO peaches, also called donut peaches.
I've also been eating alot of grapes.
I ate too many cherries, that now I'm 'cherried out' just as they got cheap :o
I eat many bananas in a day, BLUEBERRIES, STRAWBERRIES, and papaya.

I think that's the name of the book, it was p opular years ago. All you eat is fruit, one day it's pineapple, the next something else, etc. Supposedly you can lose a lot of weight! I'm diggin' peaches right now...but I'm not mono.

I love organic tangelos- can't get enough
I also love avocados

Cherries and Strawberries for me!
This is taken from the article posted in the thread entitled: 'Interesting enzyme link' which is an excellent article on nutrition.
Not to rain on anyones parade - just trying to help!!
"Food cravings are another sign of incomplete digestion. What we crave tends to be the food we do not digest very well. The hypothalamus dictates what we eat based on the chemistry of the blood. So when we eat a particular food and have cravings for it later, it is a sign we did not digest it very well. We will continue to eat more of it because there is something in that food we need but did not get."

I don't think that that statement is completely accurate. I think that some foods we actually crave because of the fact that we have associated emotional ties to the foods or there are certain chemical reactions in our bodies that respond to certain foods. Like simple sugars, fats etc..
For examples, french fries, pumpkin pie.. Adrenelin rushes these types of concentrated foods while perhaps having fun with the family or friends while eating it can make you think that each time you eat it you relive the satiated feeling and in some ways especially if it is sugar, you momentarily do.
However, I would think that it is more accurate to say that your long term and short term (uncomfortable digestion) effect should determine whether a food is good for you, not just the craving for something.
I pretty much crave all things that taste good, even bitter greens, I don't believe that that has something to do with being unable to digest it. It is just like my cat who craves greens in her diet and goes to the lawn and chews away at it.
I can tell you for sure that after getting rather ill after not being able to digest Wheatgrass grown on moldy trays (and not in fields) I am absolutely NOT craving it.
But on to the question at hand. I am addicted to Young Coconuts. The water inside is so thirst quenching, it feels like it rushes right to my skin and makes me feel alive.

Apples for me.... For the past few weeks I jsut cant get enough of them.
07-16-2006, 08:32 PM
Coconuts!! I'm passing a kidney stone, so my body is begging for them!
Please tell me what coconut has to do with passing a kidney stone? I have a friend who has them so if I can recommend anything to help, I would appreciate it.
Also, RP, I love the idea of cherries and coconut. I tend to shy away from coconuts as they seem so much trouble to open. Anyone have ideas to ease the process?
