Dear Dr. Graham & forum participants,

I am eating more apples than usual right now, since they are
so abundant and the majority of my fruit is slow-ripening, but
I am losing my tolerance to them. They make my stomach hurt
and they just don't seem as enjoyable to eat anymore. Not sure
why this is. I eat them organic; I combine them properly and
eat them with no more than 2 other fruits; and I mainly eat
the "sweet" apples like Honeycrisp and Braeburn. I also make
sure to chew them adequately.

The problem is there are many time when apples are really the
only thing for me to eat when none of my other fruit is ripe.
I am having to really cut back on citrus, pineapple, and kiwi
because it is hurting my teeth (I have a tooth with hardly any
enamel left due to former teeth grinding), and grapes are now
way too expensive to buy. Dates aren't ideal since I am trying
to lose weight and cut back on calories. In the meantime, I am
often left waiting for my bananas, mangoes, persimmons, and
pears to ripen.

I am already eating enough vegetables as it is most days to
make up for those meals when I don't have enough ripe fruit to
feel saturated (about 10% of my calories coming from veggies),
and if I have to start increasing that due to giving up
apples, I will surely throw off my 80/10/10 ratios!

I live in northern California.
