My experience so far on Watermelon Island has been nothing short of miraclulous. I never thought I would stay on for as long as I have. 4 days in total without any cravings for anything else. (* unless I get an unripe or tasteless, or rotting watermelon, so sad when that happens) I am not jonesing for anything other than my next watermelon meal. I have to say, not only is it cleansing, but without the variety and the addictive cooked foods to get in the way, I am really liking the way I feel and function. I am on another level. I almost feel high(but without the drugs. I feel a bit lighter. Can't say I feel that light yet, but surprisingly, I am even drinking some water. I am not exercising as hard or training for a marathon like I was in these past few weeks, so I am just taking it easier, b/c I really do feel that this is as close to a water fast than I once thought. Yes, I have lots of energy, but I feel without the sodium, it can be depleted very quickly on a mono diet.
I am seeing good results so far. No fatigue, no fogginess and more* happier thoughts and moods.* I can't help but smile even when nothing struck me as funny or anything. I am more clear than I have been in a long time. I am really hoping to do this for as long as it feels good. So far, so good! I hope to see some real results and go for about 2 weeks if not a bit more like maybe 5 weeks total. One day at a time!
I am usually having about 2.5 small / med watermelons a day.with about a 45-1hr workout of cardio a day. I may add in weights. I find I am not hungry. I am finding out what tru hunger feels like and getting rid of bad habits like eating when not hungry. I get hungry about every 2-3 hours in between. I find that I am functioning fine and not wanting more than I am eating. Everyday seems to be the same amount of caories ..which is coming to about 2000 calories(which I find are sufficient enough for me right now. I think this is the greatest cleanse.
I originally started this because I was eating some cooked foods and really becoming addicted again and needed to restart and clean out the engine so to speak. I also was in pain from an allergic reaction to a sunburn that I got and watermelon seemed to be the only food I could tollerate, so I stuck with it and wanted to get some results. The weather in New York was so hot these past few weeks it seemed like the right way to go. Now it is surprisingly cold and I need to adjust to the weather. I will try to stay indoors more and paint rather than spend that much time cold outdoors, so I can conserve some energy. I really think this was a pleasant and unexpected turnout.
I encourage everyone to join me on Watermelon Island!! I think you will be quite pleased at how mild and easy and fun it is! It is not too late. If you want to check out my you tube video link above, please write to me if you want and we could excnage our experiences. It will be fun!
