Simple works...

Dinner- 6 bananas, 7 coconut date rolls

Throughout the day I have been feeling increasingly well.  The feelings of vulnerability and ennui that I've had for a couple of days have lifted.  Keeping food simple helps but how much can be contributed to food? 

When I read Herbert Shelton's writings he frequently attributes a plethora of negative symptoms to diet, especially emotional and mental symptoms.  Is it possible that it takes three plus days for my body to recover from cacao, maple syrup and high fat coconut?  I can't say for sure but I know I feel a higher state of well being when I keep my food simple.  Once again, I ask myself, "Are the treats worth it?"

The date rolls were the most questionable thing I ate today- its progress, not perfection!

Hi Stephen,

I like your website very much.

I think it's perfectly normal for the body to require three or more days to recover from less than optimal foods.

In NH, it's well known to feel quite well for 24 hours after the intake of unsuitable foods. The body is in "high gear" (stimulated) so to speak. After that follows depression, until the foods have been eliminated. The hygienists usually advise eating more greens for 24 hours.
The second day after the deviation, when the body is in "low gear", they usually adivise fasting.

Hmmm... I'm sure you know all that already. :-)

Just wanted to say I love your blog.

Keep up the good work.
