Ok, I recall reading, a while back, about how a few of you get extremely dizzy if you consume a large amount of fruit at one time. Well, since I am following the Warrior Diet, I decided I would give myself an antioxidant cocktail in the form of a bowl of mixed berries for my undereating snack (blackberries, blueberries, rasberries, and strawberries). Not long after eating the fruit I began to feel a bit off. As of now, it's been over 30 minutes since I finished and I still feel pretty damn dizzy. Why exactly is this occuring (I should probably know this one). From here on out, I think I am going to avoid fruit during the undereating phase. Would it be wise to have a pure fruit sorbet (I have a champion juicer that turns frozen fruit into a culinary delight!) after dinner?

-Jay

Jay,

Keep in mind that sometimes are just coincidences, and it's not always because of that someting that things happen. Avoiding fruit, IMO would not be the answer. There are many variables here, and the type of food is just one.

Jay-

How long have you been following the Warrior Diet plan? It is definately possible that this is just a reaction from your body adjusting to such a low volume of available glycogen for an extended period of time.

If I was switching from a standard diet, that would be a solid possibility. However, I am switching over from NHE and have been low carbing for a good amount of time.

Jay,

The human body is very complex, I say if the problem persist then you should worry. Give it time. What doesn't kill you, will make you stronger.

Possibly high sugar load in a body that wasn't used to it produced a very strong insulin reaction? (i.e., sugar crash?)

Jay, also consider HOW MUCH you had. The warrior diet does reccomend fresh squeezed vegetable juice on the undereating phase, and protein IF needed. The undereating phase would not be a time to consume fats, since they take the longest to digest which defeats the purpose of the detoxifying process. Lots of vitmains, some coffee, and fresh squeezed vegetables is the way to go on this plan, with three big healthy meals at night. Just my 2 centavos

Cheers

Roy
