I am on day 8 of paleo and am experiencing really bad sore throats, especially when I eat fruit. Has anyone else had this problem?

If too much of certain fruit is causing an irritated throat for you then too much of a certain fruit is causing an irritated throat for you. This isn't because of paleo but rather the foods which you choose to eat while following paleo guidelines. I encourage you to fully explore your food choices until you find something that doesn't have deleterious effects on your health!
To answer your question though, No, eating paleo does not cause me sore throats. Eating too much fruit or grains does though, if I simply remove those foods from my diet then my throat returns to normal. Good luck finding the same Lyreal!

During my first week or so of Paleo I had a sore throat. Sore throats are almost always viral. Sore throat may be a painful inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the pharynx. Sore throats have many different causes, and may or may not be accompanied by cold symptoms,fever, or swollen lymph glands. Proper treatment depends on understanding the cause of the sore throat. Again to cure sore throat you need to find out the proper reason or trigger of it. Incase of mine it was beetroot causing the sensation.
