Morning Fruit Snack

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 06, 2012 at 3:06 AM

Hi all, here comes my second question post since becoming Semi-Paleo (I still make the occasional mistake) inn my former diet of oats chickpeas salad and pasta I used to drink lemon juice in the morning then go for a early morning walk then have a pre-breakfast snack of an apple 1 hour before breakfast. I seemed to do fine but now after eating more fat no grains and more protein. I find myself feeling sick after eating half the apple. Why is that? Should I stop this habit? Or replace the apple with something else less sugary? If so, what?

I just might start doing that, instead of an apple, a extra helping of veggies at breakfast with some more fat and protien sounds great :) 1 more apple in refridgerator to clean up. I wonder of any great breakfast recipes using apple.

It's generally better for most people. This MDA post explains it pretty well. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/meal-timing/ And this gnolls.org article is a classic. http://www.gnolls.org/1794/why-snacking-makes-you-weak-not-just-fat/

Why is it better to eat less frequently?

Don't a worry about the salt, i eat too much of it as it is. I cover everything with salt. Lots of it

Well it all depends on you, really. I have no idea if tolerating less is good, I personally don't think so. I would definitely try to avoid low-carbing though, keep the fruit coming. I find that eating liver pretty much solves my intolerances for most whole foods (eg. dairy). If you hate liver I'd just try shellfish or bone broth or other nutrient-dense whole foods. Oh and don't skip the salt.

Though butter seems to do ok

But I find eating dairy such as cottage cheese does not sit well with me anymore either. Either this was always the case but did not notice it before, or i am doing somthing wrong....

Unless you have some a digestive issue, you shouldn't have a problem processing your breakfast just fine without a fruit warm-up. :) I agree with Jamie about trying a few other fruits and seeing if you have a similar effect, or perhaps trying half the apple with something with some fat and protein like a tablespoon of almond butter or a little cheese if you eat dairy. But if you aren't hungry yet and you don't have any issues that prevent you from feeling hunger normally (like an ulcer or an eating disorder) then I wouldn't stress about it and just wait til you are actually hungry.

Depends on the morning whether I'm hungry or not. I awake at around 4:00AM (Bed at 8:00PM) and don't eat breakfast until 7:00AM that is why I have a early morning snack, also I heard people say fruit first thing is good for you as it helps with your body's acid levels. I also figured eating something "light and quick to digest" would help with metabolizing breakfast. Should I eat breakfast earlier and have a snack afterwards instead if hungry? Or perhaps it's the size and amount of apple first thing in the morning that is causing it as I normally don't feel ill effects until halfway through

What kind of apple? Most apples are pretty low sugar. Might be something in it you react to...maybe try another type of fruit, like a cup of berries, or an orange or a pear, and see how you fair on that?

It's better to eat less frequently than to nibble and graze. Perhaps after eating a breakfast of fat and protein (I hope it's meat) your body is busy digesting and doesn't want any apples right now.

Seems to me like an other case of 'tolerating less food'. As this is whole food you're not tolerating, I don't consider it normal. You might just be stressing your body with all that fat and protein, which likely comes with a lot of phosphorus, iron, tryptophan, ...

Danny Roddy had success with many of his clients by telling them to take calcium and aspirin, both of which seemed to increase food tolerance. Now if you think about that, maybe it would be wise to do this diet less strictly, and re-introduce dairy. Eating lots of fruit you still tolerate might be a wise idea too.

It might just be a little carb-heavy for you so early. Are you actually hungry when you eat it? If so, then try something with more fat/protein and give that a whirl. If you are not actually hungry, then just skip it. You may also want to do the apple as a night snack, as many people have found they do better with carbs later in the day.
