User :   Ever since I've been eating a raw foods diet I've been vomitting
User :   i vomit potatoes, cabbage, beans of all sorts
Doctor :  
User :   i'm living in a foreign country and I'm having a hard time eating healthy
Doctor :  
User :   i just bought a blender today-no pun intended
User :   so i can make soy smoothies
Doctor :  
User :   even the soy products here are loaded with sugar
User :   everything here is loaded with extra stuff on it
Doctor :  
User :   i can only find one restaurant that serves plain salad
User :   help, i feel sick and now that i have thrown up my throat is sore so i can hardly speak
User :   or swallow

Doctor :   I shall explain it to you.
User :   my throat is burning
Doctor :   May i know if you developed sorethroat following the vomiting or
User :   yes i did
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :  
How many episodes of vomiting did you have?
User :   1 this morning
Doctor :  
Your symptoms may be because of due to the raw vegetables that you had.
User :   is this diet too paleolithic
User :   i feel like captain cave man eating raw food only
Doctor :   I am sorry but our dietician has ordered the diet as you had requested only for these your self.
User :   but my skin looks better, i don't get heavy, and i normally feel good, but every once in a while i get sick from this because i don't know exactly
Doctor :  
It is better that you have few of the food stuff changes for better palatability.
User :   there are no organic vegetables or fruits where i live
User :   i tend to overeat sometimes, but not too badly
Doctor :  
In that case, do not take few of these vegetables raw; like potatoe, beens and any thing that has given you these symptoms now.
Doctor :   Avoid eating till your stomach is full.
User :   but i believe it is foolish for me to go back to having anything i want, because i need to keep my weight down and all of the other benefits that goes with that
Doctor :  
Practise to stop eating when you feel the stomach is full rather than
Doctor :  
than eating till the stomach is full.
User :   i have been gradually changing, but here and there after a small fast i have trouble sensing exactly, but i never have felt out of control like i used to eat
Doctor :  
Presently take plenty of oral fluids about 10 to 12 glasses of water apart from other beverages.
Doctor :   While on the diet plan, i would suggest you to avoid fasting.
Doctor :  
And stick to the timings mentioned in the diet plan.
User :   i do feel a lot like i just eat food as medicine instead of for pleasure, but when i eat food for pleasure i seem to indulge a little more
User :   i have avoided all grains until today too
User :   i had to have some toasted bread
Doctor :   If you are facing problems due to the present diet plan, then I advise you to change the food items judicially as advised.
User :   how can i keep my portions smaller when buying for one person all the time
Doctor :  
Else have a discussion again with the nutritionist.
User :   oka
User :   ok
Doctor :  
Have you followed?
User :   what can i do about the soreness in my throat today
User :   yes, but i eliminated the grains from the diet plan
Doctor :   You can use warm salt water gargling for symptomatic relief.
User :   and all the foods that were not beneficial to my blood type
Doctor :  
It should settle down in a day.
User :   great
Doctor :  
But if the symptoms are persisting or if you develop fever,
Doctor :  
I would suggest you to consult your doctor for a proper
Doctor :  
management with medications.
User :   the temperature keeps changing and it's hard to not get sick
User :   i feel like i just swallowed a coenzyme Q10
User :   thats how bad it burns
User :   if i continue to vomit on this diet i do not know what to change
Doctor :   I would suggest you to use the warm salt water gargles with plenty of water for the time being.
User :   okay
Doctor :  
You may have to stop the plan and follow with just liquid diet
User :   okay
Doctor :  
if the vomiting persists.
User :   that sounds fine

Once you feel better, you can change over to the diet plan.
