  1. I don’t have potassium issues, but I *LOVE* how you show folks how to
    achieve the dietary goal! NICE video!

  2. I am raw vegan, and noticed the only bad things is MY FEEL FALL ASLEEP
    sometimes. is this potassium, i eat so much banana, or maybe am a
    dehydrated? what else?

  3. It sounds like it could be a pinched nerve in your lower back… that is a
    possibility, and more likely than a mineral deficiency since you are a raw
    vegan. Most raw vegans get plenty of minerals and vitamins in their diet
    with the abundance of vegetables and fruit they eat, so that seems
    unlikely. Another thought, is to have your B12 and Vit D levels checked to
    see if there is anything there that might point to a reason… but my first
    hunch is a pinched nerve….

  4. Dates are great source of potassium too, good thing about them you dont
    need to cook them and can be eaten raw any time

  5. My interest is for cramps several times of the week during the night and
    day. I have a couple of questions. I do not care for coconut is there
    another beverage that I could subsititue. (600ml – 1 bottle) – Recap 1
    banana (470), avocado ½ (450), spinach 2 cups (840), potatoe ½ (500),
    carrots ½ cup (315), sun dried tomatoe pesto (100 to 150) (but how
    much???).

    1. +Unique “UniqueD” Roane Any of those foods would be great. If you’re
      already substituting them and still cramping, then perhaps it’s a magnesium
      issue. Another consideration are any beverages like coffee and alcohol that
      may be depleting these minerals from your body. As for the pesto, a couple
      of tablespoons is a good amount. Best to you~
