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 for Weight Loss

By Kate West

Let's face it. Diets don't work! If you don't have first hand experience with that notion, ask anyone who has tried and failed to lose weight a dozen times or more. The dieting merry-go-round, as I like to call it, can be brutally discouraging and frustrating, not to mention that it plummets your self esteem to an all time low! "What's wrong with me?!" you think. "Why can't I find the right diet, program or pill?!" And once you think have, you wonder why you can't stick to it. Juice fasting to the resue!

There is one fundamental reason as to why you haven't been able to loose the pounds despite your most dogged and sincere efforts. And that reason boils down to one word-- TOXICITY! All disease-- including excess weight-- stems from the same problem. It's the result of a build up of waste materials in the body. In fact, I often tell my clients that fat is their friend. And after the look of bewilderment dissolves from their faces, I proceed to tell them that it's fat that's keeping their bodies safe from the harm of toxins. Let me explain...

You see fat has one purpose-- to buffer toxins. Just like an oyster will wrap a single grain of sand in an alkaline substance (the pearl) to prevent aggravation, so do our bodies wrap foreign contaminants. Only our bodies wrap them in fat! So, the more toxic you are, the more fat cells you will have and the more frustrated you will be. And that's why diets don't work! They don't address the underlying CAUSE of your weight problem in the first place. But the solution is simple... DETOXIFY.

Arguably the best way to help your body detoxify from the onslaught of environmental and food related toxicity that we are faced with today AND eliminate the source of your weight problem at once, is to use the age old, time tested technique of Juice Fasting. Juice fasting for weight loss has helped countless people eliminate their weight problems permanently because rather than being a 'diet', it is designed to simultaneously flush your body free of toxins AND saturate it with enzyme rich fruit and vegetable juices. This in turn sets up optimum conditions for your body to release the excess weight for good. (And to thrive!)

There are two main reasons why people are finding it so difficult to lose weight and keep it off these days. First is the fact that toxic substances are bombarding our bodies on a constant basis. The list of foreign agents in our food, air and water that have a negative cumulative impact on our health goes on and on. Second is that people are consuming far more calories than ever before. This is due to the fact the the majority of our food supply has become watered down and denatured due to processing and unsound farming practices, causing us to require twice as many calories to get the same amount of nutrition we would have had to have consumed only decades ago. Therefore people keep eating in order to satisfy their cravings which are simply signals from the body calling out to satisfy it's nutritional needs!

Juice fasting for weight loss takes both these of issue and swiftly nips them in the bud. Built around the simple idea that by flooding your body with abundant quantities of high quality bioavailable nutrition in the form of enzyme rich fruit and vegetable juices, the body's nutritional needs are satisfied and cravings disappear. Then, once the the body gets its nutritional requirements satisfied and fulfilled, it goes to work detoxifying your entire system and scrubbing clean each of your 80 trillion cells. Because all nutrition is ''juiced", the need for digestion (which can take up to a whopping 70% of your energy!) is eliminated and the body can spend that energy cleaning up the mess that is causing you to remain overweight despite any and all dieting efforts.

So as you can see, juice fasting for weight loss is by far the most efficient and health affirming way to jump-start your body and get you looking and feeling fabulous fast! And since there are no side effects, besides radiantly glowing skin, sparkling eyes and the energy of a ten year old, can you think of any reason not to give it a try?!
