  • Which is the best sub-forum to chronicle a raw journey?

    Thanks for the answer.  Not sure whether I will (or not) as this place is so dead frown

  • Lost Control of Watermelon Island

    BogiNYC said:

    I see that this thread is already 2 years old, but I still like to comment. Water "poisoning" can be serious, even deadly. I don't think though that the problem was the large amount of watermelon you consumed. If you don't eat much but watermelon for a few days it will cleanse your body, but eating large amount of watermelon PLUS drinking more than a gallon of water a day is way too much. You didn't get sick from the melon, but from the water! I eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables (nothing else) a day and since their water content is high, I only need to drink 2-3 liters (quarts) of water daily, or even less when I eat lots of watermelon.

    If you worry about dangerously low sodium level in your body instead of chips I recommend celery/celery juice (naturally high in sodium, it really tastes salty) and coconut water which naturally packed with eletrolytes.

    I believe that watermelon island is good for your body.

    Good luck!

    Yup! The issue is the extra water. 

    When you eat fruit, you are already getting a huge amount of water. However, this fruit-water is perfectly balanced with h20/sodium/potassium i.e nature's perfect sport/electrolyte drink, and so is properly utilised by the body. Drinking plain water, which is not balanced in the same way, can completely upset the delicate sodium/potassium balance, which can be extremely dangerous frown

    Just as the title says. Thanks! laughing

  • What's your favourite raw snack?

    Remove the pit from a date and replace with any nut of your choice, Cashews, Walnuts, and Macadamias all work great. You could also blend a paste of nuts and tahini as the filling for the date.

    If you are sensitive to heavier combinations such as these, you could try stuffing them with something else, or just eat the dates as they are.

  • New to the forum, but...

    New to the forum, but not necessarily new to raw. I've done many short periods with it, but it just never stuck, and it's been a while since I went for it.

    Have some quite serious health issues to contend with, and so a, looking to go 'all-in' for 30 days - or so. I imagine I'll end up somewhere in the 90-95% range, as I know I'll be including cooked sweetcorn, soy milk (at least to start off with), the odd decaffeinated coffee (at least to start off with). I may also make exceptions for pasteurised juices/fruit. 

    Either way, it's nice to see a Raw community that's still going strong laughing

    All the best to everyone.
