Just curious if anyone's tried Dr. Cousens' Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine "Phases." I am trying Phase I, have almost been doing it for two weeks. On Phase I, if you haven't read this book, you are only allowed to eat veggies, nuts, and low-glycemic fruits like avocados and tomato. I started this diet because I am absolutely sick of feeling shitty, mainly due to my allergies (to everything! it seems) and emotional problems. I've tried going raw and had trouble in the past because I've made my boundaries so fuzzy... I'll say beans are ok, or pickles, and the next thing I know I'm eating whatever I want (which usually isn't that bad- vegan cooked food) and I tend to binge eat a lot so I have to maintain control. This diet has been good on that end because I have very specific guidelines to follow, and I think the lack of sugar has stopped me from wanting pasta/grain/bread/beans for the most part. My problem is that I have been feeling really nauseous, and I haven't been able to eat much for the past three days. I threw up a bunch last week and this week too. I can't think about nuts or I feel like vomiting. Is this detox? Is this normal? I attributed it mostly to my birth control pills, because they usually make me feel sick, but not this bad. I've been considering moving to "Phase 1.5" just to get something in my stomach (I'm losing way too much weight by not eating) but I really want the effects of the diet to work. Is Phase 1.5 effective? Has anyone tried this? What results did you get?
