BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Negative reaction to a beneficial
Posted by: macawluver, Monday, February 12, 2007, 5:22pm
Anyone else react negatively to a food that is supposed to be a beneficial? It seems everytime I eat bananas I get this massive head rush and feel really yucky for a while after. It has gotten so bad that I now find myself avoiding them all together. I just wonder why they affect me like this when they are supposed to be so good for me. I also feel this similar feeling after drinking fresh squeezed pineapple juice. Perhaps I am reacting to the sugar in these foods.

Anyone have any ideas?

That would be a good guess.  Do you eat them alone?

The thing is we are all individual, it goes deeper than just blood type, there are different tendencies based on disease states and individual phenotypes and genotypes .  That is why the study of polymorphism is so interesting, it is never ending

Yes, both types. And it's since last year actually.

I have yet to try the leaves of the globe. It's the season now, and I used to like the leaves more than the heart.

Wish me luck :)

How sad for you, macawluver...I don't know what I would do without my bananas.  

And...Yaman...good luck with the globe leaves.  ;)

Debra :)

The only fruits I can eat are a small amount of cherries, blue berries and plums and that is if I eat them right before bed with a handful of nuts. I do seem to have a sugar problem from all fruits but can handle these the best. I did learn from others on here that eating fats with fruit will be helpful. It has helped me to be able to have at least a little fruit ;)

Bananas make me feel ill - I can't eat them; also, red wine gives me a headache and cherries make my throat itch (but I eat them anyway).

I believe cherries are high in salicilates  - do you have trouble with aspirin?

Is that raw or cooked?
I can eat Jerusalem artichokes raw and although I like them cooked they are very 'windy' - rather I should say.....  ;)

your body must be getting rid of all the lectins from the past.....give it time to adjust, and introduce the benies gradually.

I get a rash from red wine, purple grape juice, and raisons.  The white varieties donít bother me.

Hi Joyce,

I get the same reaction like you do when I eat them cooked. And I thought eating raw could have been even more disastrous ;D Now that I see it works for you, I will give it a try.

Cheers,
Yaman

I know Lola'cim, and we call them "apples of the ground" like "pomme de terre". And actually they are not Jerusalem but girasole ;D

But I do have (similar) reactions when I eat globe or Jerusalem artichokes.

I have stopped bananas as I get just too bloaty and heavy feeling.  I get a slight head rush as well, and they leave me craving more!  So, my fruits now are blueberries, cherries and sometimes dried figs.  Just can't do too much sugar myself.  I have been adding flaxseed milled to my son's banana/cherry mix that I make them and he doesn't act so spacey afterwards, so that is helping, but for me, I just cut them for now.

I do hope so, yet it is different this time. My 30 something years reaction to bananas disappeared within a couple of months into the BTD. But the artichokes, the reactions started early last year, that is in my seventh year of BTD'ing..

Maybe I'm just getting older ;D ;D ;D

Yaman

They are called Jerusalem Artichokes in US - It metamorphosized crossing the 'pond'. How the Artichoke ever got attached, who knows...

Also, there is a Native American food crop that is also known as 'Earth Apple' or 'Groundnut' {NOT to be further confused with Peanuts}. It is the
Apios americana - Fabaceae

Macaw,

Being an O non-secretor -- like myself -- means that you have the highest all of possible intolerances for carbohydrates. †Normally, non-secretors in general have a higher intolerance for carbs than secretors, but O non-secretors have it worst of all:

An O-nonnie that I was talking to recently said that he really started only feeling maximally healthy when he cut out all carbs from his diet.

I definitely agree with this. I have also noticed this about myself. I REALLY do not tolerate any carbs well at all. This, unfortunately, includes fruits. :'( The carbs in veggies don't bother me so much though so I eat tons of them. :P
