Now that I've stopped laughing (that burger pic is too much)

I haven't done a detox in over 15 years. It led me into a vegan lifestyle for the next 10 years. Currently I'm eating everything, but I tend to eat vegan 2 out of 3 meals a day...

Things learned in my raw foods days: Avocados, almonds, olives and water. Have them every day and your body will thank you

Hang in there, FB!

I once spent 6 weeks eating nothing but grapes. It sure cleaned me out, and I felt and looked much better for years afterward.

It is not possible to cleanse at a deep level unless you do a sustained regimen. Your body will cleanse itself, but only if it's given the right conditions for the right amount of time, just like you can run but can't reach the full speed you're capable of without the right amount of open space. You won't get anywhere near your potential speed trying to run the length of your living room. Likewise, a day or two will help, but won't get the deep crap out of your system.

Of course, it's a no-pain-no-gain proposition. It's monotonous, you spend a lot of time feeling uncomfortable, irritable, and even ill. It's not very rewarding in the beginning, but you get over manageable humps and spend a while feeling much better, with sharpened senses and a fresh appreciation of life. It's not an exaggeration.

Ultimately, you should eat the things you like. Having done an extended stint as a raw food vegan and a just-plain vegan, I believe that such diets should be temporary and part of a strategic cleansing regimen rather than a lifestyle. It's a bit like celibacy. You might be naturally inclined to shun intimate relations for a while after a painful breakup, but sooner or later you begin suffering from lack-o'-nookie and need to get a little. I think veganism is a bit extreme a dietary lifestyle to suit all but a few people. Still, most people could benefit a great deal from going vegan for a while.

M@T, if you'd done that to me, I could have forgiven you for everything except the curry. That was uncalled for!

Hang in there FB!

Andrew (and anyone who's gone through it before), how much energy do you have, and how physical have you been? I feel like I could benefit from something like this. DFAC food blows goats. Only problem is that I need to be able to keep the physical intensity levels pretty high. I'm especially curious about the grapes...

While we are on all this cleansing talk, anyone know of any particular food or trick to get a lot of urine out of your system? I am currently retaining quite a bit of water in my ankles due to blood pressure and immunosuppresant medication. It's more of a cosmetic issue than anything but I'd like to drain myself as my ankles get big by the end of the day (overnight I urinate a lot of the water out, but not all). My doctor has given me water pills, but its a low dosage and the effect is limited. I'd rather not take higher dosage water pills, or any at all for that matter, as they come with negative electrolyte effects (your body loses potassium and sodium). As I said, it's more of a cosmetic issue at this point and my shoe wearing is relatively unaffected (boots can only be worn on my best days).

What makes you say that these foods in particular are so good?

Ed,

About a week and a half ago I started taking a fish oil supplement and a green/phytofood supplement (http://www.nowfoods.com/?action=item...&item_id=3635). I've done the green stuff before, only a different brand, and I've never done fish oil. One of the two has about doubled my urine production; I've been drinking the same (moderate-high) amount of water and tea but been going like a racehorse. Perhaps one or both could help you out?

Olives should be eaten in moderate quantities -- lots of sodium. From what I understand, truly 'raw' olives are basically inedible. Some people might want to be wary of avocados also because of their fat content.

Ever tried e3 Live green supplement? It's supposed to be good. I tried it once over a year ago, but I didn't do it regularly or long enough to really say whether I noticed any meaningful difference. Some people swear by it (but you can say that about pretty much everything, right?) The good thing is that the company offers a money back refund. I might try it again.

Thanks. I'll try the fish oil supplement (pills, I take it?) first and ask my doctor about the phytofood supplement as the site mentions that it boosts your immune system, which I need to avoid. I think my abysmal water intake is also an issue.

Yeah, just fish oil pills I bought at Costco.
