Time to start narrowing things down.
Is it cooked food that your body is taking exception to, or is your body disagreeing with the food that was cooked?
Over time, the body will most certainly adjust to regular diets. Your digestive system will optimize itself to handle the types of food you eat most
commonly. This doesn't happen in two weeks though. Although, I'd imagine that some psychosomatic adjustments could happen in that time. In other
words, does a cheeseburger actually make you sick, or does the taste of a cheeseburger repulse you so much you feel sick? Just like many people will
puke if you make them eat a live giant hissing Cockroach. But, having a chewed up cockroach in their stomach isn't going to make them sick.
Things do change over time, and I've experienced it myself. A couple of years ago, my wife went fish and poultry only. No beef, no pork. Before
this, pork spare ribs were her favorite thing to eat. Even the tiniest bit of pork now, elicits a reaction from her digestive tract that's well, less
than desirable. Since we're married, my diet has evolved over the last couple of years to more closely resemble hers. I only have red meat on very
rare occasions any more, and to be honest, I don't enjoy it like I used to, and much like my wife, I have become intolerant of fried foods, and
detest cooked vegetables.
Admittedly, I do sometimes feel a bit strange when we eat out on (rare) occasion...
"Yeah, I'll have a grilled chicken breast, no marinade, no salt, with a baked potato, nothing on it, and your seasonal veggies - raw and nude.
Please don't cook 'em. Oh, and I brought my own water, thanks."
I share your milk feeling though, always have. Never understood why my friends all drank milk from a cow. As far as I am aware, none of them were
baby cows. Don't even get me started on fast food. There are much better tasting ways to poison yourself.
For my family, all this came about because of our dogs. They really opened our eyes to the ill effects experienced when the diet and the digestive
system get out of sync. A vet once told us that our dog would die any day, and recommended we put him to sleep. That day, we ceased feeding him
"dog food", and put him on a raw diet of the things that his digestive system was designed to process. Protien. Raw meat, bones, organ tissue. He
lost 30 lbs in 90 days. The OCD behavior that resulted in hairless arms and tail ceased immediately. No more wheezing. Arthritis seemed to vanish
within a week or so. All this was 4 years ago, and today this dog chases squirrels, frisbees, balls, sticks, anything that moves. Mankind has
"tweaked" the domestic dog into infinite variations of size, shape, color and temperament. On the inside though, they remain unchanged. The
digestive tract of a chihuahua, is just a scale model of the digestive tract of a wolf. Ever hear of a Wolf stealing a farmers corn? Makes you
wonder why all commercial dog foods are grain based and "vet recommended", doesn't it.
Sorry for getting off track, but it ties in a bit. We should eat what we're designed to eat. Fortunately, as humans, we're designed to eat just
about anything we want. It's what we do to our food that starts to muck things up. I laugh every time I see someone who's obviously overweight
tell a waiter "I'm just going to have a salad thank you, I'm trying to lose some weight". Then they proceed to cover up anything green with a
gallon of ranch dressing, and top it off with a fistfull of shredded cheese, which they wash down with a "diet" cola.
