This post is kind of graphic, so if you have trouble reading about bathroom issues, you probably don't want to read. ;)
Ok. Most days I am high raw, many days all raw with every intention of being all raw every day by the end of the year.(I have this pesky severe recurring caffeine, and mostly from coffee, addiction, and am going through mild withdrawal as I write this, so forgive any errors in my writing.) Well, the past few days, I have been trying to cut back on the amount of coffee I drink, no easy feat, let me tell you. The reason I clarify this is, when I was completely off coffee, pop, tea and any other caffienated items last year, it was a million times easier for me to be raw. That seems to be one of the three biggest stumbling blocks in my raw journey. So, anyway, in an effort to help assist with the dexofication of my body from the dreaded caffeine addiction, i have pumped up the water intake and am making a concious effort to eat as much raw as I can. However, as a result, I have gone to the bathroom to poop so many times in the past two days, I cannot even remember them all, and this morning, I got really bad ...diahrrea... And now that I think about it, I think I just kind of answered my own question, but I was going to ask, if this is something that I can just chalk up to detox??? Also, any advice about how I can keep myself hydrated other than lots of water??
