    I feel the same way about fruit.

    Right now, I'm gorging on peaches and plums cuz they're in season and are my favorites. It's hard to find good plums around here though. In CA, you can get ones that are so ripe that you can just bite a small hole in the skin and suck out the entire fruit! That's the best way to eat plums! Other than that, blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and shitloads of banana. Asian pears and apples too.

    There we go. It is representative of alter-ombat: the one that has the digestive abilities to eat sea vegetables.

    That's really cool! How did they adjust?

My hypoglycemia doesn't act up at all with fruit (only refined sugars & wheat, esp. with the two combined), but I find it's harder to get full. I'm honestly not eating very much lately though. I feel tired of eating the same things. What fruit do you guys eat?
    In what way does it not sit well? And is it all dairy or just ice cream? I am also not very hungry eating this way. Actually, I am somewhat adverse to eating altogether. Not because the foods I'm eating don't appeal to me but because the thought of eating anything at all doesn't appeal to me. I ate very little yesterday (so normally I'd be starving today) and I could barely bring myself to drink coffee this morning. My (possibly naive) theory is that I'm finally getting the nutrients I need and my body is trying to get back down to the weight I've been all my life (-10 lb of what I am now) orrrrrr it could be that something is terribly wrong.

    re. breakouts - I get those when I have non organic dairy (hormones?) and sometimes while ovulating (hormones again?).
    Hey, that is no small feat! My bloat was so bad recently that my stomach wasn't flat even lying down...

    I have noticed that I break out more during ovulation as well and I seem to be nearing that time. Meh, I'll see what happens - let it play out for a while.

    Bleggghhh I have never liked peaches. I don't think I've tried plums since I was very young though, so that's something to try. I like blueberries in things, but not alone. I definitely need more melon in my life. Sometimes fruit textures bother me. I can only eat a few strawberries at a time. I like the flavor of blackberries & blueberries, but I prefer to mush them with my tongue and then swallow them. Chewing them eeks me out.

    TANKS!

    Oops I forgot to answer that question - I eat mostly mangoes and sometimes melon (though those cause temporary bloat for me due to the water content?). The other night I had some berries and those didn't seem to cause an upset. I am going to add a few oranges for nutrition and I would like to try stone fruits. They had caused cramping for me in the past so we'll see how I do!

    Name, why don't you try fruit juices? No texture.

    All dairy bugs me (not butter, but that's because it's generally such a small amount). Bloating, gas, & diarrhea (to varying degrees depending on how much I eat/use). Before when I was badly constipated, it was just awful bloat. Lactaid stops the diarrhea and reduces the bloat, but I still get very gassy.

    Are you a supertaster?

    Not to my knowledge. My husband is a supertaster and puked in a science class when they were made to taste this strip of paper. It's just supposed to taste bad to people who can taste it, but not make you puke!

    If Lactaid helps you then you actually do have some sort of lactose intolerance....

    And I had edited my post above to include this so you might not have seen it, but have you tried juices of the fruits whose textures you don't like instead?

    Oh, I remember tasting those strips--it's to see if you have the gene that allows you to taste it, right? I can't remember if I could taste it though. God, early-onset Alzheimer's!

    Hey, is it weird to say "my husband," since you're so newly married? A close friend of mine got married a few months ago (it was a really sudden wedding), and I still feel weird saying "her husband."

    I stopped eating oranges a couple of months ago because I thought they were contributing to my gas issues (citric acid problems? maybe?). Haven't tried them again yet, but I'm not sure if I will. In the past, they've bothered my gums.

    Would I need a juicer for that? I'm thinking of making more smoothies, but as silly as it sounds, I don't really know what to put in them! I made a really tasty one over the weekend with ice, plain rice milk, almond butter, banana, and blueberries. I just dumped stuff in and ended up with a tall glass full. I had a craving for almond butter and this seemed like the best way to treat it .

    It wasn't clear to me when I did the tasting what it would taste like if I could I don't really know what plain paper tastes like, but I think I remember it being a bit acidic. Maybe I'm a minor super-taster

    It is TOTALLY weird. It took me long enough to adjust to "fiancť". We were engaged for about 6 months. I hesitate before speaking to people and it's weird because anyone I speak to about "my husband" is basically someone at work, so they know I just got married too.
