On July 28, 2021, I started a fruit and vegetable fast to help me transition to the Dr. Sebi Alkaline Electric lifestyle. It ended up being multiple days of eating only watermelon. And I have to say, it has been one of the most enjoyable fasts that I have ever done. No lie, it was effortless. So naturally, I want to share what I experienced in case it can help anybody out there.
Why I chose watermelon.
I decided to do watermelon for a variety of reasons. It’s mainly water, it’s my favorite fruit, it’s cleansing and it is cheap considering the amount you get. I thought watermelon would be perfect because it was a food that I could really eat all day, everyday without getting bored. I love sweet stuff (one of the reasons I desperately needed to transition) and watermelon is super sweet. It feeds my sweet tooth and it’s healthy for me. That’s a win-win kind of situation right there!
However, if you are familiar with the teachings of Dr. Sebi, then you know you can’t just eat any watermelon. It must be a seeded watermelon. Although, it seems like everywhere you look there are those sub-par, basketball looking, seedless watermelons in every supermarket – the good news is, with a little bit of looking you can find seeded watermelon.
Find seeded watermelon:
✅ At your local farmers market
✅ By the truckload from a farmer (my fave option)
✅ Sprouts Farmers Market
✅ Various supermarkets
10 days on nothing but watermelon
Let me tell you, eating nothing but watermelon every single day is glorious!! I enjoyed it so much. I shouldn’t even call it a fast because it did not feel like one. I would eat anywhere from 1 to 2 meals of watermelon. I know some people like to snack all through the day, but I didn’t do that. I sat down and ate it as lunch or dinner, always after 12pm.
I didn’t weigh myself prior to the fast because weight loss, while a bonus, was not my intention. My intention of eating only watermelon was to help break my food addiction and help me to easily transition to the Dr. Sebi Alkaline Electric diet.
