Hi. I’m new to the raw diet. Just started transitioning in a few weeks ago when I found I just couldn’t stomach what I had been eating anymore.
My question is for people who have been eating raw for a while, did you have any new food sensitivity/allergy type reactions to specific foods in the raw form? If so, did this decrease over time? I posted this question on another site and just wanted to see if I got any more input here.
In my case, I found that my tongue was hurting so much after two weeks of raw food that I couldn’t stand it anymore. My throat also itched, and my stomach was starting to hurt. It felt like an allergic reaction to the food I was eating.
For the past two days, I’ve been carefully tasting all the raw vegetables and fruit in my refrigerator one at a time. I compiled two lists: one of things I can eat, and one of things that make my mouth hurt and tingle. They are the same length! I thought going raw was extreme, but now I’ve narrowed it down to a list of 15 foods. At least it makes recipe choosing easier :-\
I’m hoping this is just some sort of temporary detox reaction. I’d love to hear any stories/advice/reassurance that anyone has to give on this topic. Thanks!
