View Full Version : Canteloupe Rush
09-22-2008, 02:04 PM
I love canteloupe. I eat it plain, or put it in the blender with fresh mint and drink it, usually a half a melon at a time.
About 20 minutes after eating or drinking it I get this strange feeling in my limbs mostly, it's kind of a heaviness and a buzzing at the same time.
Any idea what it is? Cleansing? Sugar rush?
Do you feel it, too?

OH MY! i also have the buzzing/heaviness!!! but it happens with all melons.. or even sweet fruits- If i eat them on an empty stomach!
i usually feel like this heaviness is pushing on my shoulders!! so weird, i'd like to know what it is too :rolleyes: i suspect some sugar reaction

How ripe was the melon? sounds like a sugar rush.

Any canteloupe, and only canteloupe does it to me. The one I cut open this morning wasn't that ripe. Wasn't that good either, it's the end of melon season here. I wouldn't be surprised to know it's a sugar rush, but since I've never felt it with any other kind of food, I can't help but wonder if there is more to it than that.

Melons are digested more quickly than any other natural raw food. That's why you experience a sugar rush from melons and not from other fruits.
