Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Juice Fasting Detoxification

By Kate West

The term "detox" has become quite the buzz word these days. You can hardly open the paper or turn on the TV without learning about some new potion or pill that claims to detoxify your system. Well, you might be wondering if you need to worry about detoxifying as well. The answer is yes! No matter what method you choose, these days detoxification is an important component to include in any health, weight loss or prevention regimen. Here's why..

We live in incredibly advanced and complicated times where much of what we take into our bodies on a daily basis was never meant to be there. For example, there are over 70,000 chemicals used commercially today which lead to more than 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals being released into the environment each year-- bi-products of processes such as manufacturing, production and transportation. 4 Billion Pounds! Not to mention the fact that 72 Million Of Those Are Known Carcinogens, or Cancer Causing Agents.

Even our water is under assault. It was recently discovered that the water supplies of most major US cities contain traces of a wide variety ofpharmaceuticaldrugs, ranging from sleeping aids to baldness cures, medicines for depression and other psychological disorders-- things you don't want hanging around in your drinking water! Even traces of rocket fuel (yes you read that correctly!) are being found in the water we drink and the food we eat. With all of this evidence, is there any wonder why disease and obesity are at an all time high?

You don't need me to point out that these manmade substances were never meant to enter your body. But your body takes in everything you are exposed to in some fashion or another. Therefore, no matter how hard you try to live a healthy lifestyle, toxins are entering your system faster than ever before. In fact, some studies show that on any given day you can count on 30,000 foreign substance entering your body. Now that's a lot to process even for our exquisitely designed bodies!

But there is hope! Juice Fasting Detoxification can maintain and even restore optimal health despite the bombardment of toxins we face today. It's the the smartest, easiest and quickest solution to remaining clean from the inside out. Obviously, with this such contamination in the world, even a health-obsessed person should consider a juice fasting detoxification plan.

Juice fasting detoxification is done by ingesting large quantities of highly nutritious, enzyme rich fruits and vegetables in order to make sure that your body gets an abundance of the the vitamins and minerals it needs to rebuild. This boosts your immune system, the very thing under attack, and also gives your body much needed rest. Because you are juicing the vegetable, you are taking care of the 'breaking down' process and thus temporarily eliminating the need for digestion. This very fact alone frees up a whopping 75% or more your energy! And considering that the body has a built in house keeping mechanism that goes to work scrubbing your cells clean any chance it get, this energy does not go to waste! Instead, it goes toward cleansing and purifying you from the inside out and eliminating these harmful substances from your body and your life! (Imagine tiny scrub brushes polishing your cells clean!)

Considering the stress our bodies are put under by constantly being bombarded with harmful substances, juice fasting detoxification should be included as an important tool in the survival kit of every person living in the 21st century. Considering that it's a simple and natural method for detoxifying, increasing energy, facilitating the loss of unwanted pounds and even eliminating a whole host of medical conditions, it's easy to see why juice fasting detoxification is one of the very best things you can do to reclaim or maintain vitality and vibrant health!
