You may not be consuming more water by drinking but you are getting Water in your RAW Food thus your Body is releasing more Water.

Are you eliminating salts as a result of eating raw. That might also be part of it, but I agree you are likely getting more liquid in your foods. How's your health otherwise? Any known food sensitivities? They can cause greater frequency/urgency.
Things you are detoxing from as a result of better eating may also be irritiating the bladder, ureter, or urethra. That irritation will make you need to go.

I would think it is, as I as well have urinated more often. However, I am drinking a lot of green smoothie and water.

when I drink more vs eat, I always go a lot more..the bladder can't hold all the liquid. Mine is clear quite often. I read that when it's dark, you're eliminating acidic foods & things you don't need. lighter urine is suppose to be a more alkaline body.

I go about 1x/hr just from eating raw food. I don't drink that much water anymore but I know I get it from what I eat.

the medical term is "diuresing," and I am sure you wanted to know that! But as you burn fat your body also releases water, so that can be another reason. I think it may also happen with detox. Recently I did a green smoothie fast and there was one day that i peed and peed and peed. I think my body was just ready to let go of some fluid it had been wanting to hold on to for some reason of its own. I didn't ask questions!

Thanks for all the information. Very helpful. Guess its all the poisons geeting out of my body and the added water from the fruits and veggies like y'all said.

It's normal. I've started raw more than once, after falling off the wagon. Every time I've started raw, I've spent a couple of days peeing my brains out, ROFL.
