View Full Version : watermelon + grape "fast"
06-27-2008, 09:04 AM
im planning on doing a watermelon & grape only fruit-fast for 3 or 4 days starting tomorrow. im worried, however, about moving my bowels by doing this. will it happen? ive never even tried a fruit fast, but ive been eating crummy raw foods, an oxymoron i guess, for the past week & feel like i need one. i just get nervous about getting "backed-up."

I would think the fruit would keep things moving just fine!

HI!! I'm actually going to try to do a watermelon fast today (well I've been doing it all day today), and so far things have moved well. I definitely feel like I'm getting LOTS of liquid ;-)
I think summer's great for friut fasts because your body doesn't seem to really need a lot of heaviness to feel happy and there are so many wonderfully light fruits in season.
Fruit has also never really backed anything up for me, it's usually the opposite.

i wouldn't worry about it at all. it's only 3 or 4 days... and you are doing fruit juices... i can't imagine it would be a problem.
IF you have any trouble... when you are done your fast... juice a bunch of apples and drink it down. that'll get ya movin'

I did a grape fast several years ago and had no problems in that area, even though I was very prone to them at the time (eating SAD). For me, it was grapes in, grapes out :-) I don't think I was chewing them well enough!
