I agree with you. All these sistems, like 811, seem to assume that everyone is ok with eating this way. I do not believe that's the case. Today, in my own analysis of why I ate so much grain on the vegan diet, I realized that it's not because I am addicted to grain. It's because I have a high need for protein. For instance when I eat omnivorous diet I do not have this grain craziness. In fact if I have a choice between protein rich food and grain based, I will always chose protein rich. When I have past with seafood, or even meatballs, I will always have more of the protein then pasta. If I make myself a sandwich it is always open faced, etc. I learned today that one bagel contains 12 gram of protein which is equal to 12 bananas. Of course I would go for the bagel over bananas as I do not like them that much, plus it would be too much of the same food. Anyways, long story short, I believe that people with fast metabolism would naturally do better on carbs and people with slow metabolism naturally gravitate towards proteins. For instance I get much more pleasure out of drinking fish or chicken broth then fruit juice. I also feel much better afterwords. When I finished my 40-day fast I was craiving for eggs, meat, fish and cheese. I was not dreaming of fruits. In fact, I was sick of fruit after my 2nd day of refeed. I should've listen to myself back then...:)

May the Energy you free from digesting serves your Body and Spirit well!

Have you seen this new interview of Stephania Licari, Yuliya? She is an avocado & durian lover also. After climbing Mt. Everest, she ate 27 mangos for a meal!

Yes, Esmee, she is very inspiring!

And my current verdict (for myself) is listen to your body - one meal at a time.

May compassion to yourself and all beings guide you in your eating, fasting, and lifestyle choices.

Milena,

I believe the reason you crave a bagel or a steak and not fruit is because you are craving calorie dense foods - especially after fasting. That's the same with me, except that I am craving dense fruits such as durian and avocados.

When you eat a steak - your calories are mainly coming from fat and not from protein, and I believe you crave it because of taste and not because you have an increased need for protein.

May compassion to yourself and all beings guide you in your eating, fasting, and lifestyle choices.
