Recent studies show that eating raw food helps quench the thirst, mainly because raw fruits and vegetables have higher water content that foods that are cooked. And by consuming raw food, your body will get the much needed water it requires from the raw food that you ate, thereby, quenching one’s thirst.
However, it does not imply that one must refrain from consuming water or juices. The most important thing in living a healthy lifestyle is that you must take heed to what your body wants. For example, if you are overweight, or tired, or have low energy level, or depressed, you body will surely tell you to make some alteration in your diet. And one ideal way to ease your body from these physical and health disorders is by having a raw food diet.
Individuals who are overweight and show indications of “Type II” diabetes, usually experience great thirsts that are hard to quench. But once they change their regular diet into raw food diet that has high level of fiber and moisture, they would eventually begin to lose considerable weight, of which, are ideal in reducing their blood sugar levels.
A physically fit person that does not have any sort of disease or health disorder may still need to increase his or her raw food intake. You might ask yourself why, the reason for that is that a person who is physically fit and do not have any disease or health disorder may consume foods that are highly processed. These processed foods have significant amount of sodium that can dehydrate a person without ever feeling thirsty. Coffee drinkers should also be aware of this because coffee can dehydrate a person’s body.
By increasing your intake of raw fruits and vegetables and pure water and fruit juices instead of cooked and processed food, you will provide your body with the much needed moisture, not to mention the essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs in order to become healthier. It is important that you minimize your intake of sodium rich foods in order to have a normal level of sodium in your body. And once you keep the sodium level in your body normal, your body will start to crave for the essential water in needs. Thereby, making you drink the normal amounts of water that is essential for proper circulation in your body. It is like adding balance to what your body will need.
