I’m not kidding. I KNOW that a few servings of fruit a day are beneficial to a healthy diet and all, and I even like the taste of it, mostly, but for some reason I feel that my body rejects it. I get upset stomach, bad breath, and occasionally break out in hives. It just sits there, and my body does not know what to do with it.
I’ve been so bad lately that I even wrinkle my nose and dry heave at the thought of eating fruit.
When I was younger, and biking 500 k’s a week, and doing lots of strenuous work and such, I would force myself to choke down a “power shake” every morning containing a banana, yogurt, fresh berries, whatever other fruit availiable, and bee pollen, wheat germ, whatever, a raw egg. I was very annoying.
Now I don’t get enough exercise, I have a slow metabolism, and I’m hoping a better diet will improve things.
I eat several servings of dark green veggies every day, as well as meat and usually some sort of starch, like rice, noodles or potatoes. I often skip the starch. I don’t do vitamins. They make me crazy. Vitamin C alone will give me canker sores the size of pennies if I take it for more than a few days.
People are giving me fruit all the time and I can’t eat it. Why?
For the record I could hardly eat it even when I gad a girlfriend that made me go vegetarian for 18 months.
I’ve never seen a doctor or a nutritionalist about this, but I like to hear a few opinions before I go to a doctor.
