When you start eating more raw foods, you may find youre not as thirsty or dont need as much water or other beverages as you normally do. There are several reasons for this.

First of all, raw foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables have a higher volume of water in them, so your body is getting the hydration it needs from foods.

This doesnt mean you should stop drinking water or juices. You dont want to adopt some of the more radical elements of the raw food trend. First and foremost, listen to your body. It will tell you what it needs. If youre overweight, sluggish, tired, depressed, your body might be telling you to make some dietary changes, and raw foods might be one way to alleviate some physical disorders.

But if youre overweight and have symptoms of Type II diabetes, overwhelming thirst can be one symptom. When you start consuming more raw foods, with a higher fiber and moisture content, you may start to lose weight, and that can go a long way to reducing your blood sugars.

If youre not overweight, or dont have Type II diabetes, you still might find youre not as thirsty as you normally are. First of all, if youre drinking water and juices, youre not consuming caffeine, which is so dehydrating and makes you thirstier. And by not consuming as much in the way of cooked foods or especially highly processed foods, which have astronomical sodium counts, you wont be as thirsty either.

By consuming more raw, uncooked food, and pure water and fruit juices, youre putting your body into balance. Keeping sodium to normal levels found in foods means youll start to require a more balanced amount of water. Dont think of this as changing or taking away. Think of it as adding balance, and it will make the process of eating healthier much easier.
