I have been high raw over a month- might as well say two, eating cooked dinners only and all raw snacks, breakfast, and lunch. Then my dad threw a gathering and made tacos. So, as always, since I'm vegan anyway, I brought TVP with me. It was only the second time I had it that month and I usually eat it once and possibly twice a month. The only problem I ever had with it is not being getting full.
I have had flatulence since then(going on two weeks), regardless of what (especially soy products- I've seem to have become intolerant) I eat-but raw foods aren't as bad.
What in the heck is going on?
First I realized that I had lactose intolerance (that's why I'm vegan), then wheat intolerance (which caused me to go high raw), now soy?
Let's not talk about legumes- oh my goodness I might as well eat soy! I've never had problems with legumes. I have a hard time gaining muscle on a raw diet, and I lose weight too easily on it.
I'm taking Papaya enzymes, but we all know that it's really time that will help the most.
I didn't think this short period of time on the raw food diet would change my digestion so dramatically, causing cooked food to become this hard to digest.
Is that even possible? I did eat Vegetable Pakoras tonight, and was mildly gassy right after a few bites then it subsided- What the heck is going on? I don't want to be 100% raw, but it seems like my body is forcing me too.
Has anyone else had this experience?
Oh and I have heartburn when I have tomato based products---that was never a problem either.
