Sometimes I have 10 :p
Bloating tends to occur when fruit is eaten on top of cooked food. If you’ve eaten cooked food the night before and then have fruit for breakfast, for example, a little bloating is normal. In such instances, it’s not the fruit causing the bloating, it’s the cooked food that it’s catching up with in your stomach. Raw fruit digests much faster than cooked foods, so the cooked stuff will be sitting in your stomach still, getting in the way, while the fruit’s trying to work its way through your system!
I drink between 500ml and 1 litre of water [around 20 minutes] before breakfast each day to aid good digestion and minimise bloating. I mostly aim not to have my cooked meal too late in the evening (though sometimes that idea goes out of the window and I’ll be munching rice at half eight or a bowl of cauliflower at ten :p)
Are you new to a high raw lifestyle? Do you still consume a lot of oils/salts? Do you combine different kinds of fruits in one meal? These could also be factors here. Or it could be that your body is still detoxing? Feel free to message me in private off anon if you want to speak further (or anon again is cool, of course).#text posts #raw vegan #801010 #anon
Firstly: try to get the support of your family (and friends) if possible. Sadly, veganism is still very much set apart from social norms (that which is considered ‘normal’/accepted behaviour in modern societies) so people will be bound to question your reasons for considering this, simply because they don’t understand.
The second piece of advice is to research your socks off! :) Make sure you understand the concept of raw veganism inside out. Learning where to obtain vital nutrients & how much to eat is crucial in making this lifestyle a success. Useful starting points for research:
FullyRaw - Basic Q & A on Kristina Carillo-Bucaram’s website (8 years fully raw vegan)
Raw vegan YouTube channels:
Also, try googling ‘801010 Diet Free PDF’ to find a free online copy of The 801010 Diet by Douglas Graham.

I bought those bananas from a local supermarket. I just asked for a box at the checkout so I could carry them more easily :) It worked out about £12 for the whole box. Occasionally I’ll happen upon places offering discount on very ripe bananas that they’re trying to sell off quickly, but not often unfortunately!
Some places will give you a reduced price simply for buying in bulk, just ask and try your luck! (:#anon #text posts
