fruit and "dyslexia-like" symptoms

It's time for me to take a break from fruit. It's been a major vice because as Robb Wolf likes to say, "the poison is in the dose." I notice that last night and this morning, having had a fair amount of fruit in the last few days, including a number of carrots (close enough to fruit in my book) my thinking has been a bit "scrambled." Not sure how else to describe it but I notice myself making silly thinking and writing mistakes.

Anyway, I'm curious if others of you have noticed STS (scrambled thinking syndrome) from eating too much fruit or other sources of sugar.

Fair enough. It just rustles my jimmies when fruit is falsely demonized. And I'm not saying it IS being falsely demonized here, just that it so often is.

Never have experienced sts from fruit but I haven't eaten much fruit lately at all. Once I decided it was holding me back from getting off sugar I bought less and eventually just didn't need it at all. Just start buying it less often and you will eventually stop wanting it. I also read that that fruit is mainly fructose, and I want to limit fructose consumption so that helped me kick it as well.

Of course he can't confirm that! If he could he wouldn't be asking for more anecdotal evidence from us...

Love the STS moniker!

I went fruit-free about two months ago. It helped me to stop binge eating and made me less hungry.

Nope but it's the obvious suspect and I need a good reason to lay off the fruit.

Correlation does not imply causation. Can you confirm that lowering your fruit intake has "descrambled" your thinking?

Makes me think that either you don't have good blood glucose control, or there is some sort of fungal infection that feeds off of the fruit sugar, and the toxic byproducts of the the fungus digesting the sugars are scrambling your brain.

Are you eating less protein and healthy fat along with the increase in fruit?

I don't eat a lot in general so If I was eating a ton of fruit, I would likely be eating less of another macro and that would be an issue for me.....
