Recommended Posts

Now we have a Raw section I thought I would set up a thread for other Raw Foodists to post their progress, feats and milestones since going raw and that celebrated the possibilities of a Fruitarian/Raw vegan lifestyle,

 

Ok I'll get the ball rolling and post mine!

 

Here's some more vids of me messing about with my ghetto gym!

You da man, Big! I reference you all the time when I'm talking to others about the power of raw foods, fruits, and incorporating more of those foods in their diet.

 

Thanks for being a great role model!

 

Hey Robert that's good to know and is truly an honour!....Thank you!!!!

 

I personaly think that the more we celebrate the lifestyle the more positive vibes others will feel....too many raw foodists complain about every ache and pain and spend all there time gripeing instead of appreciating the work their bodies are doing to correct the wrongs!

 

I also had a nightmare of a time when I first started out as a Fruitarian but I learnt that you gotta be a warrior.....it's what I had to go through for my body to heal and correct itself....and yes socially it's a hard adjustment but I've learnt that it's only as hard as you make it!

 

So I encourage all you raw foodist to celebrate/remember the good things that you have experienced since going raw, as well as any improved fitness, strength and physical improvements and post them here so we can all celebrate and support each other!

Hey Big.... quick question for you

I've been hearing stories from people I know who have experienced bloating and weight gain as a result of eating fruit as a morning meal.

Their doctors blame it on the natural sugars in fruit.

 

Can you shed any light on this for me? It just doesn't make sense to me

No idea...without know more details about these people it's hard to say because it could depend on a lot of things....and what fruits are they eating, what the state of their current diet, how much are they eating, are they 100% raw?, is their whole body bloated or just their gut?

 

For instance it could be that they are cleaning out but then blocking themselves up again with cooked foods and the gut is trying to adjust and do the right thing.

 

I have no idea without knowing more about the individuals!....chances are it's not the fruits that are at fault....it's the choices the people make!

yeah, tough to tell because I don't know for certain what choices they are making.

They claim that their diet has remained the same other than increasing fruit consumption. Bloating in the stomach area and increased weight resulted.

 

Hypothetically though, if I were to eat nothing but fruit in the morning and ate my usual diet of veggie pita sandwiches, stir frys, falafels, etc....

is it possible that I would gain weight?

Or is it more likely that the fruit doesn't satisfy my hunger, causing me to eat more of other foods?

 

btw.... the people I referred to are not code for JW

To be honest I don't think it's the fruit at all....but that would depend on the amount of fruit eaten, if they were to eat a large amount of fruit at one sitting in the morning then yeah that would mess up your stomach because fruits digest at a much, much faster rate than the stir fries, falafels, etc so the fruits would be fermenting inside you! and that would be a matter of food combining!

 

Either way it's not wise to mix raw and cooked.....

These days all I'm eating for breakfast is a bunch of fruit, or a fruit/kale smoothie and not a stomach problem to speak of. Before I was vegan, even, I used to have tons of stomach problems, it was rare that I didn't have some ache or bloat (I'm talking about the first 33 years of my life here). Going vegan totally changed that, and stacks of fruit, no prob. Don't think it's the fruit causing their problems.

That's awesome 'bwii! I gotta do more one arm/one leg'ers, I've been working on higher numbers of regular push-ups mostly. And I am definitely gonna start doing switch-grip pull-ups - good stuff. I'm inspired!

Hey, if I may step in...the reason this happens is when the dinner meal is sufficiently difficult to digest, it is still in the stomach come morning. Then when you eat fruit on top of it, the fruit ferments. The fruit will not cause this problem if eaten on an EMPTY stomach.

 

It's not the fruit at all that causes this, but the meal eaten the night before.

 

Make sense? Hope this helps!
