Things aren't so good following the health tip to eliminate high blood pressure by eating papaya on an empty stomach and not eating anything else for two hours.
Day 1, I ate a Caribbean Sunrise papaya (the small one) and it tasted great. I was so full. About an hour and a half in, my stomach was telling me something. Not that I was nauseous. The best way to describe it: my stomach was in motion. Which when you think about it, having eaten a papaya on an empty stomach and thus eating a fruit that is also known as a meat tenderizer, it's not surprizing it was doing something.
The great news, unlike my normal breakfast of fruit and oatmeal, I wasn't hungry for four hours later. Keep in mind, my normal breakfast normally includes papaya as a part of it.
Day 2, same thing. Not so alarmingly the second time around. And yes I was full past my normal lunch time.
Day 3, I don't eat breakfast before church and after church I go to brunch with friends.
Today, the store was out of Caribbean Reds or Sunrises and only had another brand that I don't like the musky smell of. I was back to normal breakfast again.
