I was wondering if there are other ABs who are sensitive to Beneficial Carbs and some fruits, legumes and Beans.

What sensitivities are you refering to?

I'm very sensitive to the sugar in fruit-- I go hypoglyceimic. 4 oz. of juice is about all I can handle, once per day. Some grains (not brown rice) will cause this to a somewhat lesser degree. Beans.. I love them, but they bloat me. I choose to eat them anyway, but I feel paunchy.

I used to have a severe reaction whenever I ate really sweet fruit, but found that due to having been on an anti-candida diet, which restricted carbs for too long, my cellular energy was really low.  When I ate the beneficial carbs, it powered the cells to dump garbage and caused me to feel really bad until the body caught up.  Fortunately, I had a practitioner I could talk it over with and I was able to reduce the portion size down to keep the symptoms under control, then slowly build to clean out.

It is no longer a problem.

Try drinking cherry juice and green tea together a couple times a day or whatever you can manage.

I start to gain weight immediately. If I ate a nice big bowl of Stir-fry noodles with loads of veggies, and soy sauce, which is also supposed to be beneficial, tomorrow morning I would be 2 lbs heavier. Same with Sushi and Beans. No bloating, but weight gain over time on these as well. I cannot have sushi and soy sauce the day before I weigh in at Weight Watchers. I think even the light tamamri sauce causing me weight gain.

They wanted me to be on a Candida passifying diet, but I liked fruit too much, so I never went for it.

I am drinking Cherry Juice. But why with Green Tea? What does it do?

At your age you probably have some muscle to gain back. I would worry less about fluctuation in weight. Fluctuations that occur overnight are only part fat accumulation. They are more likely differences in water retention.

As best as I can make an amateur sense of it... Cherry juice binds to to things, like problematic sugars, and Green Tea removes them. That is actually why Green Tea is anti-cancerous; because it removes sugars from cells that are per-cursors to cancer.

Could it be the sodium in these foods?

I wouldn't worry about sodium unless you are already on diuretics prescribed by a doctor.

Joe, that is an interesting story. In this case however if indeed a Warrior, she would be to the benefit that her system can probably handle dealing with a bit more stuff at once. One of the few benefits...
