Stomach Pains!




  • Frederic Patenaude

    I suggest going "mono" for a few days to see if issues can clear up. Try eating only bananas for a few days, or having only mono meals for a few days (only bananas for breakfast, melon for lunch, etc.).

    It is easy to 'gain'stomach pains when discovering that 'critisism" is "deleted'. Hoorah 4 the technology.!!! Fred you seem to forget that "organic" is not a 'fashion  concept"... Organically grown fruit , Veggies, nuts etc. ARE ( wild poLLuTIon free as optimum choice...) by far more a better choice 4 PERSONAL & ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH. RECONSIDER TO GIVE THEM A 'WORTHY POSITION IN A PERSONAL POP POLL" By doing so you would (re) win my RESPECT....

    Hey Dave J!

    I have the very same problem. :( Actually, I wanted to address Frederic, but then I saw your post, so I guess I will put my message for Frederci here, hoping that he will answer and u can read it as well.

    Hi Frederic!

    First of all tumbs up for all your work! Thank u for your emails. I enjoy reading about your Costa Rica travelings and explanations about the difference between "fruit and veggies diet" and "nuts diet". I myself promote the Plant based diet  in my country of Serbia. U can check one of my videos, the only one that is in English, at

    However, I have a question... I have been vegan for past 6 years and it feels great, but now...I want to transfer to raw food only. And I have been trying for the past few months, but I always end up eating a LOT, LOT of fruits...simply because I am addicted to them ... always been - even when I was little and before I converted to vegan! However, when I eat a lot of fruit, it feels like heaven, but ... I am bloathed! :( So, please, reveal your secret to me. How can u eat so much fruit and have no water retention in your stomach? Thanks in advance!!!!

    PS I am eating mono fruit meals... organic when possible, but washed thourougly with Soap nuts from Nepal. When I eat a cup of steamed millet for example, my stomach is flat and does not hurt.
