So I tried tomatoes again today with much more success. I did not have bloating or cramping today. I’m thinking the issue was the amount of raw carrots and broccoli I ate yesterday. However, I will return to the elimination diet for the next two days before reintroducing wheat.
Eating Low-Fat Raw Vegan
I also ate low-fat raw vegan (LFRV) today, excluding all cooked foods, and even excluding overt fats (nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocados, etc.) and eating at least 80% of my calories from carbohydrates, less than 10% of my calories from fat, and less than 10% of my calories from protein.
Most of the foods I consumed today were fruits as they are much higher in calories than vegetables (but don’t contain much fat) and therefore must make up most of the LFRV diet. Vegetables are included for their density in micronutrients. I tested this diet today (however I did consume garlic), as I am considering following it after I finish my reintroductions of possible allergens and foods to which I may be intolerant.
However, I will return to a more typical diet (i.e. cooked food) for the time being to avoid introducing more variables into the reintroduction process. This may mean that I will have to try to reintroduce tomatoes again in the future to check my results. Read the rest of this page »
