View Full Version : Gosia-What fruit?
03-27-2006, 01:04 PM
I read your fortnight with fruit and wondered about what fruits did you do and were they all just the juicy fruits for awhile. Exactly, how much is a fortnight?
Going on the MC but am thinking that just fruit for a while is going to detox and clean me out pretty good.
Any suggestions from anyone?

I not sure about the post but I have fasted with fruits before... I usually fast fruit combinations. One fruit combinations that I like it just eating as much oranges-lemons-grapefruit as I can for 4 or 5 days. It a good cleansing fast and you get the added benefits of energy and vitamin C among other nutrients.
In the summer when they are in season, I like to just enjoy melons for a few days (watermelon, honedew, cantaloupe, etc.) they are excellent diuretics and give you some great nutrients. If the melons are organic the rinds can be juiced and then refrigerated, to me, this is a refreshing drink here in my part of Illinois where the heat becomes hot and sticky with humidity...it really quenches my thirst.
Just a few ideas

A fortnight is the Brit term for 2 weeks

divaitalia, in my fortnight with fruit, I ate sweet fruit for a while, then added some non-sweet fruit too. I did it for about a fortnight and I recorded what I ate in detail at http://www.rawgosia.com/journal/2006/march2006.html.
I am planning to do it again, inspired by wonderful results (easiness to do it, cleansing, no cooked food cravings).

I think that's what I am going to do. I have just been craving fruit and salads. Hopefully this will start the cleansing process.

If you do, I would be interested in your experience, if you do not mind sharing, of course.

I will keep you up to date. It's all very interesting. I am really going to try to stay 100%. I am in the food business you know, so food everywhere!!!!
Just a note to tell you about my day: I did 2 glasses of the MC lemonade. I decided to eat some fruit. Here's what I ate:
salad with cucs, red pepper, tomatoes w/ lemon juice
After all this, I took my sugar at around 9:30 pm( after eating 1/2 of the papaya at 8pm) my blood sugar was doing really good.
Anyway, keep you up to date,

Thanks for sharing. I agree, staying 100% is a good priority. What you ate seems like a good combination. I also like to start the day with juicy fruit, I tend to have orange juice in the morning, and later perhaps rock-melon, or some other juicy fruit.
What does it exactly mean that you take sugar? And, how do you know when your blood sugar is doing well? (Pardon my ignorance.)
PS I bought 20kg of black muscat grapes from a wholesale shop, so this is what we've been recently eating as a staple. I think we will have to juice some of it, as I bought too much! Anyway, it was a good deal, so I do not regret it.

That means I take my blood sugar reading every day to see how high or low the number is. I am diabetic, so I poke myself everyday.
Most of the time I know it is way out of wack when I feel bad or I have been eating foods that I shouldn't. I have found that raw really is working though. This fruit thing is making me happy and very energetic.
I cater and everyone around me is eating lamb and filet mignon and duck. I asked them if there was fruit? The chef came out with this plate of purple grapes, anjou pears, orange and strawberries. Now that is spoiled huh? I am lucky that they don't give me a hard time about it.
Just for anyone out there, after all the fruit I have eaten today and about 1 1/2 cups of coconut water my blood sugar was just about right. Awesome. :D
Well, goodnite for now. Have a great spring day in Australia, or is it winter there?

someone say Australia!!! I am in Albury on the NSW / Vic border - who else is from down under?

Hey Squidly - great to see you again!
Piers and I are on the NSW/QLD border, and hang out on the Gold Coast and Brisbane on occasion. Let me know if you're ever coming up this way and we can do dinner!
Australia - I would say we're nearing the end of summer... it's starting to get colder at night. The funny thing is we moved into a house with SIX bedrooms, and ended up setting up a bed under a mosquito net outside. We sleep outside year round, unless it's thundering down rain. It's nice enough even in the 'coldest' winter nights to do that without thinking twice. Not like Canada where I'm from.

Divaitalia, that's sweet of the chef to do it! I think that you are on the right track. Going raw is the best thing you could do. And, I hope that one day you will not have to poke yourself anymore.
It is Autumn here.
I live in Tasmania (migrated to Australia 12 years ago from Poland, and at first settled in Adelaide).
Have a great day too,
