Since gently tucking away my fruit shame 6+ months ago:
1. I have more energy. In the daily fight against persistent, ugly fatigue, I have won most of these days. Holy fuck yes, that's amazing.
2. I feel an even deeper, loving connection to my food. This one is big, because when you can't eat anything because of over-reactivity it's easy to start hating food, & the act of eating. Something about vine-ripe fruit & the simple, smooth satisfaction it brings to my routine has been spiritually cleansing & adds gratitude to my plate. So mushy right? It's hard to explain but it's a truly enchanting & enlightening thing.
3. My weight no longer fluctuates. Admittedly, because of the extra energy pushing through, I have also added barre 3 workouts to my routine, & have the stamina for bikram yoga several times a week. So it may be a lovely combo of things. But the verdict is that fruit has definitely NOT negatively impacted my weight & in fact has been extremely regulating. This seems in part due to the fact that I am indulging in healing glucose daily, like really indulging, therefore providing satisfaction instead of restriction. HUGE thang.
This list goes on, but for now it's a snippet of what fruit has added to my life & my healing journey. I was very much a restrictive sugar lady with paleo antics. I still dig protein, but it's mostly plant based (+wild salmon occasionally). Right now, this is what feels inherently right in my bones when it comes to my body healing & telling me so. But I am always iterating, evolving & welcoming new routines. #fruit #fruitfreak #smoothie #medicalmedium #healing #healingfoods #healingjourney
