View Full Version : Indigestion on raw
11-05-2006, 01:47 AM
I have been 100% raw for 2-3 weeks now.
I find that now I have hard time digesting foods that never caused me any trouble before. Ex. Avocado, Nori, Olive Oil. I ate those in different combinations a few times and they gave me a very nasty feeling, bad taste in the mouth, feel like I am going to through up. Did anyone have this experience, what would you recommend.

you mean when you FIRST went raw...2 -3 weeks ago, you could eat them, and now you can't ...or when you were SAD you could eat them???

Your body needs time to adjust to eating all raw foods. Also, the foods you listed were mostly fats. Are you food combining properly? Maybe your body is the type that doesn't do well with many fats? Have you tried eating mostly fruit?

I was never "sad". And when I say never is mean NEVER. I did not even grow up in North America. I never had a burger in my life. I have been a healthy eating vegatarian for over 15 years. Nearly vegan for the last 5. I have been high raw for the last 2 years, but I was always eating bread and straches with my salads.
I started having the digestion problems as soon as I went 100% raw. I think it is mainly a problem digesting fats without the starches.

I will try reducing fatty foods, but I don't eat a lot of them as it is.
I just don't want to start loosing weght, since I am already on the skinny side.
In addition I am alergic to a lot of fruit, like citrus fruit and other tropical fruit, and dried fruit give me terrible tooth sensitivity.
The only fruit I can tolerate well are apples, pears, banana and grapes.
Seems a little restrictive just eating those.

eating too much oil will always cause nasea (sp?)
so cut out some of the oils.
I can't do hardly any oils at all. UGH!!

I've read that folks who've had trouble with citrus fruits overcome this problem after they've stayed low-fat raw vegan for a period of time. Hope this rings true for you at some point.
I love the saying "If you can't make a meal out of it, it is probably not the best food choice" ... or something along those lines.
Choose the foods that best serve your health and vitality.

So what would be a reasonable amount of fat to eat in a day?
I usually have 1/2 avocado for lunch, the other 1/2 for dinner plus a handfull of nuts or seeds. The rest in fruits, veggies & greens.
I usually have 3 meals a day, 2 on weekends and an accasional apple as a snack. I don't like eating constantly, it makes me feel unstable.
I don't thinks it is too much fat? Do you?
I don't want to lose any weight, how much fat in a day do you think is reasonable? Is there anything else I could be eating?
