    for some reason that I´m not really aware of I´ve just eaten fruit the last four days. Not because of any health or weight issue. Just because fruit was the only thing I really wanted. And I think my body went into shock when it didn´t get the usual meat fix. Because my stomach has started acting like a can of turboshaken cola, and I feel sort of strange and light headed. If I didn´t know better I´d say I was semi hallucinating.
    Does anyone have any professional or whatever ideas of what happens to a body that´s used to a "normal diet," when it´s suddenly confronted with a pure fruit diet?

    It might be the acidic content–depending on what type of fruit you’ve been eating… Watch out, Robert! You may loose all of your fillings next! :mrgreen:

    A sudden change in diet like that can cause gi disturbances, concerned about the dizziness & altered state though… :shock:

    Keep yourself well hydrated, try some clear fluids like chicken broth, jello, lots of water until you feel more stable. If it keeps up see a doctor :!:

    Gotta balance out the diet with grains, nuts, carbs & protein…and of course liquor & caffeine :P :wink: :aliensmile:

    Hope you feel better soon :idea:

    Robert, this guy has written about fruit fasts, his books are very good. His whole idea seems to be if God didn’t make it then we shouldn’t eat it.

    The semi-hallucinating state has been mentioned in his writings.
    He also writes about going into a fruit fast too fast which sounds like what you did. He suggests easing into and out of it. If you can find this book it is sooo interesting, he talks about our electric magnetic fields and the importance of water and water foods in our diet for keeping a charge in our brains that helps us pick up God energy. Very uplifting. Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate pecan pies and grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatos and good California wines and other stuff that is probably clogging up my connection to God energy. oh, Coma girl is right, try eating now to balance out those feelings.

    LTG, luckily I don´t have any fillings, or I´d imagine they´d be popping out of my mouth at lightning speed :D I´m not sure how acidic mango, orange, pineapple, banana, and different kind of melons are. Which is mostly what I´ve been eaten. As well as some strange ones that I can´t remember.

    Allison, gi :?: I´ve been drinking plenty, so I don´t think I´m in any danger of dehydrating. But my diet has been everyting but balanced :D And I´m still kind of out of my mind.

    Annastefka, you´re such a voodoo princess :!: :mrgreen: How on earth do you know all these things? Do you remember if he mentioned the semi hallucinating deal as a positive or negative †hing. Because it´s kind of annoying, but if it means I´m really tapping into gods energy big time then I guess it´s worth it. Also, good wines from california ?!? :P

    My main "problem," I guess is that I don´t have an appetite for anything besides fruit. And that is really really weird. I think I´m as anti vegan as they come, so why I don´t want anything apart from fruit is beyond my comprehension. But, to try to balance things out I´ve decided to try this breakfast:
    Scrambled eggs with prusciotto and parmesan. Bruschetta with pesto, serrano, sundried tomatoes and mozarella. And a pasta+chicken sallad. At first I thought of steak+steak, to sort of jumpstart my system in the opposite direction, but then I opted out, as it might have been sort of a big task for my body to suddenly be exposed to that ammount of meat.

    sounds like a serious vitamin shock :shock: :P :aliensmile:
    hope you’ve overcome it without damage!

    but I agree, it’s a weird sudden change of diet indeed… :?

    Thanks for the medical lesson Allison :D
    Well, the breakfast and my stomach weren’t exactly friendly towards eachother.
    I have however successfully managed to eat some pasta+chicken+pesto today, without it causing havoc to my system. I’m still sort of funny, but not as weird as yesterday. So I guess that means that the hallucination sort of things are on their way out.
    Also, I’ve promised to worried parties that I will see my doctor tomorrow if I’m still a bit out of my mind.

    I never figured eating fruit could be this dangerous! It’ll be a cold day in hell before I touch something that grows on a tree or a plant again :D

    I found a bit for all from Gabriel Cousens (sorry spelling above incorrect) book called "Conscious Eating"

    He tries to convice us that a 100% live food diet will extend our lives and put us in touch with God (Divine Life Force) he states over and over that a transition to a live food diet (fruit, veggie, and sprouts only) should take place over a period of one year! Slowly because first we need to get rid of things that clog our cells and keep most of the vitamins from live food from crossing over into our bloodstreams. Things like meat and then milk and then flour etc…

    this is a piece from "Conscious Eating" from page #336

    On a living food diet, I have personally found that it is easier to experience an extraordinarily exquisite, gentle, eternal flow of the Divine energy moving through the physical and astral bodies. The more we experience this energy, the more we are filled with it. The more we experience ourselves permeated with this Divine energy, the more we experience the truth of our existence as "That", and know that this divine experience is our primary identity. This profound and continual experience is not the same, however , awareness of the One, which is a totality beyound any experience of time, space, senses and energy, and especially beyond words to describe the experience. The experience of Divine energy helps us feel connected and a part of the flow of the universe. It is the reflection of the One in the mirror of the human body. It is a constant reminder of our eternal nature, of our Divinity. To me, this is the great blessing and grace of a living food diet. If we are to be in the body, why not live in a way that helps us feel connected to the Divine energy. Why not live in a way that has us experiencing the grace of God’s touch daily?

    I doubt the Dr. Cousens has done much "tripping" with drugs in his life but that passage above is totally tripping. That is the state he believes Jesus was in most of the time.

    candy, you must eat more sweets.

    and milk, cookies go well with

    also remember vitimins can be fun

    just like jello

    add gin for good times

    a good hearty beer is as filling as any steak

    or at least you can believe that after twelve

    Actually, gin has gotten me into so much trouble that I’ve gotten a court order saying that bombay dry and befeater has to stay a minimum of 100 feet away from me at all time. So if you ever go to Flaine(France) to snowboard, take my advice and do your best to avoid: attempting to drink two bottles of gin within a timelimit of 30 minutes, while you’re sitting in a lotus position on a restaurant table, singing traditional norwegian songs.
    Also, screaming I am the messiah when the staff are running after you is not a smart move either.
    Oh, and the stairs inside the club hotel le totem are not meant for snowboarding.

    96 was a weird year. No doubt about it.

    well… that sounds more sensible than going from all to nothing over night :D

    thanks for the info Annastefka! I’ll have to try to find that book.
    Oh an you should read The Road To Ixtlan by Carlos Castaneda, I think you’ll like it.

    …maybe you should have screamed your messiah message while sitting on that table, instead of singing those dreadful norwegian songs…… :twisted: :wink: :lol:

    …and a tip from den Buck: you don’t make any new friends by falling asleep (or in a sort of coma…. :roll: ) in the only gents’ toilet in a very busy student bar after drinking three bottles of Jaegermeister together with a friend…. :wink: :lol: :P

    .

    Husband and I laughing, We both have lived in Europe for short bits of time, me in Spain and Poland and he in France and Germany, We both agreed "Those Europeans love to sing songs when they get drunk" "Traditional songs" I guess that is charming when compared to the typical drunk American here in Athens, starts off by being totally a jerk and then he urinates in public. YUK. Police are talking about publishing the names of those caught peeing in public in the local paper, and they said much to their surprise it isn’t only 20 year old boys but also 40 and 50 year old men in business suits. :oops:
