View Full Version : Get sick of certain foods?

you are asleep..life nothing but a vision..its just you and a big empty space..cut that vision and you will no longer
remember..what your experiencing is just a thought..
Well, I can tell you that it certainly takes longer than 5 minutes for your body to process any food so whatever you excreted it was not the nuts you had just eaten. There are literally miles of intestine to traverse in the human body, it takes hours for food to make it's way from one end to the other. Unless you are violently ill in which case it would be a more rapid exit but there would be no question in your mind that this was the case...
Many people experience an increasing sensitivity to certains foods that may decrease, change or disappear over time. Raw onion can be a bit exacerbating to the system so if you are reacting poorly to it you may wish to exclude or minimize it for a while and try a bit at a time later on. As for the bell peppers, they are a nightshade and as such some people are sensitive to them as well. Same story, exclude for a while then add back in a bit at a time at a later date and see how you fare. I myself can't have eggplant as it makes me sick to my stomach, cooked or raw, though I haven't been brave enough to try it again for years so maybe I could handle it again now.
You may wish to address your digestive fire if food looks and smells the same coming out as it did going in. You can remedy a hydrochloric acid deficiency with supplements like digestive enzymes and see if that helps or you can drink a glass of water with lemon a half hour before meals to stimulate acid production in the stomach. This may all change over time so be flexible in your approach and try to listen to what your body is telling you about what it needs.
Best of luck!

are you new to eating raw? I know some people who can not digest most veggies/ nuts (crazy). Their body type really is built for eating meat and grains and nothing but, for some strange reason.
if you are new to eating this way it may take some time for your body to adjust or... this may be the case... If you are new, I'd say ween yourself into it and mix it with a variety of things that don't bother you. maybe some bread or crackers with your salad for example. Eventually you should be able to eliminate those foods and go completely raw.
next tip.. see your doc and ask what the frick is up.

I personally think you would fare much better taking enzymes while starting your Raw journey. Alissa sells them in her store. I don't think adding cooked food is going to help any in fact it's confusing your body more.
Here's a link to Alissa's enzymes:
Are you ill?
It sounds like you are dumping. Stomach bug?
Stop the nuts and whatever else you notice that you are dumping.
Onions, bellpepper and whatever else you noticed.
If you don't have a stomach bug, your stomach may not be ready for certain things.
Can you digest any fruit right now?
Start with some simple fruit that you have not had a problem with in the past. Start with just one thing and advance. See how it goes.

I can relate to the bell pepper. I was never really able to eat them, they lay in my stomack for hours and draw so much energy from me. No problem, though, with other nightshades like tomatoes and (pre raw) aubergines.
Raw onlions can give gas to some people. I think this is because of dying yeasts and bacteria.
Some people don't get on with nuts so well. And 1 1/2 packs seems quite a lot to me, even if the packs are small. Try to eat onliy a few at a time. The nuts you had were probably neither raw nor organic if their label did not say anything and they were cheap.
If the food leaves you five minutes after you have eaten it, you must have horrible diarrhoe. However, if you can recognice the food feces, you can't be chewing well enough.

As another poster pointed out it sounds like your hydrochloric (HCL) acid might be low. Try incorporating green smoothies into your diet. Per research done by Victoria Boutenko with the help of a doctor, that green smoothies will naturally raise your HCL levels. I also agree with adding digestive enzymes. Also rember to chew your food very well. Cooked food requires less chewing since the cooking process softens the food, so eating more raw you have to make a coucious effort to chew better. (another benefit of green smoothies, the veggies are sort of pre-chewed for you)(be sure though, when drinking a green smoothie that you sort of "chew" it or swish it in you mouth to mix it with siliva and activate the enzymes in your mouth).
I also agree with eliminating the offending foods for a while and then add them back one at a time.
