I'm 26 years old and i'm English, i'm happy to have found you all!
I am about to move home to England to Surrey after spending nearly 3 years in Brussels Belgium coz my finace got propmoted here. It's been totally amazing, I found raw food, health and my myself in this time - I am so lucky (blessed) to have had this time and not had to work even. Before that time I had asthma and loads of allergies and felt depressed that I couldn't live naturally, the natural world hurt my body and that felt awful - now after 2 years of very high raw (100% with lapses into binging) I no longer take any asthma or allergie medicines - I am FREE and NATURAL I can't describe how great this feels!
One thing is left though, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas or experience on this.
So my journey into raw has led me into a more and more simple way of eating, now my body asks for proper simple food combining and my digestion is very sensitive. I can't eat nuts or seeds at the moment even alone and soaked. Before I left the UK I was diagnosed with PCOS (cysts onthe ovaries) with in my case went hand in hand with insulin resistance. So basically I believe my pancreas is tired and doesn't digest stuff especially proteins very well. So I am taking as of yesterday systemic enzymes and a couple of herbal teas to help this and hopefully help the pcos go too so I can ovulate. Anyway, I'm babbling. My question is about blood sugar...
I get sugar cravings at night after my salad when I eat fruit in the day.
I just did a 5 day water fast then went onto a very low GI diet for a week, that stopped the cravings which was cool but it was also very high fat (avos) which I found out is not good for getting the bloodsugar level normal. So I have reintroduced my fruit as normal and i'm a lot happier with my fruit for sure! Thing is, these sugar cravings/blood sugar balance.
Is there anyone out there who can help me on how to balance my blood sugar during the day?
I live fine on fruit all day, I don't get dizzy or hyper or anything but right after an enormous salad (low fat) in the vening I crave and crave. And i'm sure now it's a physical craving as it was not there when I was on low GI.
I'm still not eating carbs like carrots and corn and peas by the way, just added bananas yesterday though.
I'm confused and I really want to believe that my diet before which I was really happy on can work for me. That's fruit 'puds' or whole fruit in the day and salad later, I am eating loads of greens too which feels good.
I hope all that made sense!
Long into eh lol
Lots of love and peace,
And thank you Alissa for this wonderful site!
