  • day 2! i went for a 5 mile run yesterday and all the watermelon has really helped with the hydration in this heat. Im feeling fantastic. Ive already had a big melon today and will have another one for dinner. I think next year I'm going to have to p…
  • I started today with my melon. That is my puppy the on the day we got her from the rescue shelter. She was so tired from all the excitement she just passed out in the car. She's full grown now and is the most playful dog you'll ever see.
  • I'm starting to do something similar atm (today was my first day) I've been eating watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew and drinking some detox tea. I'd heard of a 21-day melon detox before so I thought i'd give it a go. Normally I detox for health/e…

  • you may want to try everclear (the alcoholic drink) Its pretty much ethanol only it is food grade. I don't know if it is legal in your county/state, but that is probably your best bet. Personally i say live with the bugs, but i still have those mome…
  • I don't know that i would recommend a full fast. you do drop weight and its dangerous if you dont have it to lose. your body will begin to cannibalize your muscles. I would say eat tons of fresh produce. You may want to make big batches of green jui…
  • I wish he would differentiate between sources of fructose. I think getting 25 g of fructose from agave is much worse than say, eating a mango. Im not 811 by any means, but i think eating fruit is healthy for you and sweeteners should be limited or a…

  • i say drink up as well. i drink lots of herbal teas and some black, green and yerba mates on occasion. You can make raw herbal teas by growing/drying your own herbs and them brewing them in a sun tea pitcher on your porch.

  • youre ok to rinse them. mung beans are easy to sprout. you can even do it by setting them on damp paper towels.
  • my bad cholesterol was 110 and my good was 72. I tried to see if you could have too much good since 72 is off the charts but couldn't find that anywhere- so im guessing no
  • seriously durianrider, i wish you could be opposite that 'expert' who spouts off that we need meat and dairy for essential proteins and fats. ug! I really hated that lady's incredulity at 'so you stopped drinking dairy?? and only did soy??' like oh …
  • that is absurd. Im more angered with PETA than kelloggs- I think they have a duty to say that there are trace amounts of animal ingredients in it and let people make their own decisions after that. They are an extreme group, they should take a stanc…

  • As a general rule- don't buy cereal's unless they are organic. But as an even better practice, don't buy premade cereal. Its nutritionally devoid, and expensive. You can make lots of things yourself for much less money and little to no time. Check o…

  • for me, when i did the high fruit/low fat 811 diet I would be hungry all the time. It wasn't so much physical hunger, but i would crave things. Like when eating cheap chinese take-out, you'd be full and then 30 min later hungry again despite eating …
  • Here is my two cents on the whole thing. I tried 811 for a couple months and failed miserably. It jacked up my mouth (my lips and gums were swollen and bleeding and i was constipated, which is odd since it was like 80g of fiber a day) I prefer to ke…
  • you can even do mylk from sesame seeds (black or white) its got a good amount of calcium in it too. I think hemp mylk is the best though. chocolate hemp mylk is the schiz nit
  • check out the date people (datepeople.com i think- but you may want to google it) They have all kinds of different types of dates. I still want to try their peanut butter dates. how good does that sound?

  • there's lots of protein bars and the like on this site- check out some of those recipes. I would say the wheatgrass juice might shorten the life of those so maybe a green powder or spirulina or chlorella would work better. Those i think would keep f…
  • wtg guys! i just got done with an 8 day juicing. It really helped me mellow out for the holidays. Im planning on juicing again after the holidays just to clear out the crud. i never thought of using limes on the mc- how funny is that. i love limes. …
  • check out brendan braiziers book, thrive. he details a lot of things on workout and recovery nutrition. I think you need to move more calories to be around your workout time for your body to fuel itself. when we eat is just as important as what and …
  • Ive heard that that can happen with wheatgrass too if you drink too much when youre not used to it. Its so alkaline that you rapidly detox. More than 1 oz is considered a therapeutic dose and you should work your way up to these
  • get a vitamix. you can use it like a food processor. you can also make juices with it. Just blend and strain through a nut mylk bag. And actually if youre really strapped for cash, skip the nut mylk bag and buy paint stainer bags and layer two of th…
  • i do buckwheat in a jar. dump some dry in (about 1/3 the jar) , soak for 4-6 hrs or overnight. I cover my jar with some cheesecloth and a rubber band. drain and rinse. tip jar upside down (at an angle) in your dish rack so the water can run out. rin…

  • i think i have a mild banana allergy too- but no worries you cant juice a banana anyway. When i fast (im on day 4 right now!) I drink at least a 1/2 gal to a full gallon of juice everyday. Its all green and lovely. carrots are super cheap so i juice…
  • i've heard that you are more fertile coming off the pill that if you werent on it at all. (like how new moms are super fertile too) When my mom was trying to get preggers with me the doc put her on the pill for 3 months, and when she went off to sta…
  • that gorilla sandwich is the most original idea ive seen in a long time- thats my lunch tomorrow!! :) thanks for sharing!

  • I would also agree with asking your doctor, but I dont think its a good idea to do one, and im a fan of colonics and enemas. I would recommend adding a large green juice to your diet everyday (mostly greens and non-sweet veg with a bit of fruit thro…
  • you could maybe get a magic bullet blender for your room and a mini fridge. I think the 811 route may work out well for you. my college had a bagged lunch thing where they would give you a bag and some baggies and you could get your lunch to go. i w…
  • I know exactly what youre talking about. Green juices just make you happy and energetic. I think its from absorbing all the needed nutrients. Its the real deal as far as energy drinks go. I get a bit addicted on juice feasting just b/c the high is s…
