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.

Master Cleanse: The Lemonade Diet

By Eric Joene

There has been much buzz about the master cleanse diet which is also known as the lemonade diet and the maple syrup diet. This can be attributed to how Hollywood has been an avid fan of it.

The master cleanse diet has been known to make people lose as much as 20 pounds in a ten day diet period.

But this was not what the maker of the master cleanse diet had really intended the diet to be. The diet was to be a cleansing diet that would allow the dieter to excrete all the toxins in his system. The side effect to this though is the weight loss. It is because of this that the diet was also attributed to be a reducing diet.

A person who wants to try out the master cleanse diet will have to go on for 10 days without eating any solid food and drinking only the lemonade.

The lemonade will be a mixture of lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Because the lemonade will have all the nutritional and caloric requirements that your body needs to survive, you will not feel any hunger pangs.

However, if you do feel hungry, there is a simple remedy to that problem. All that you need to do is to drink your lemonade until the hunger goes away. The lemonade is a natural appetite suppressant so you will effectively chase hunger away with just a few sips.

So that you are always energized, you can bring your lemonade with you wherever you go.

During the first two days of the diet, you may feel a little faint and weak. But this is no cause of alarm.

The reason behind this is that all toxins are just beginning the first stages of the cleanse and are being transported through the blood stream. Stick with your diet and soon you will begin to feel the wonderful benefits of the diet.

The estimated weight loss is 2 pounds for every single day so it pays to follow the diet really strictly. If you are overweight and you want to lose more you may also decrease the amount of maple syrup you mix in. You can stick to the basic 10 days but you can also go from 7 to 12 days of dieting.
