View Full Version : Thirsty
03-27-2006, 02:20 PM
I have been 100% raw now about two weeks and the past few days I feel that I can't get enough water. I always drink lots of water but my mouth just feels so parched. Is this normal when first going raw?

I don't know if that's normal or not, I've never experienced quite what you are explaining.
I do know that I need a lot less water now than I did when I first went raw because I eat a lot of fruit. Perhaps try upping your fruit intake along with drinking more water?

I am so thirsty too!
Usually I am not too bad in the morning, but when the evening come I always need to drink water and it never seem that it is enough... and I worry because I don't like getting up during the night lol

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but most of the population is dehydrated and don't even know it (i'm not sure how they can't know...) so maybe since you're going rwa you're giving it the nutrients it needs and it's craving the water it knows yo'ull give it (instead of soda or other SAD drinks...I also do'nt know if you were eating/drinking SAD types of food, I'm just referring to people in general I guess). I hope this made sense! I'm exhausted now lol.

In my experience, you will be having a good clean out soon. SOmetimes, if ppl are about to flush out some parasites, they get extremely tired & or thirsty. You can help yourself tremendously by making sure it's CLEAN water you are drinking. Filtered, etc.
that happened to me-it eventually slowed slowed down. hth :)

I had the same thing happen to me when I first went raw. I was sooo thirsty and would drink so much that I literally could feel the water from my inside when I breathed. It was a water-logged feeling.
I still drink a LOT of water, but it is about half of what I was drinking then. It took me about 2 months to get over this...

There ae ppl on the raw food diet that eat a lot of dehydrated foods & nuts/seeds.
Do you eat much fruit?? Ppl that eat a lot of fruit seem to get their needs that way.
I'm not gourmet, more mono. Maybe that has something to do with it.

that happened to me when I first went raw as well. Before raw, I typically drank almost NO water, -- I hated it. After starting raw, I drank several bottles a day. Now I tend to eat lots of juicy fruit, and don't drink as much water ... but thre are still days when I crave it. So, do what your body wants ... drink clean, pure water.
If you are eating lots of dehydrated foods, you will want to increase your liquid intake for sure.
