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.

Wu Long Tea the Slimming Tea

By Berry Fei

Wu Long Tea is a fantastic product and well worthwhile implementing in your daily routine. You may have come across this well known Chinese Tea from an appearance on Oprah with Dr Oz. Wu Long Tea is partially oxidized. Wu Longs taste is more like green tea than black tea and is usually drunk on its own without milk. You will also find that the quality of Wu Long loose leaf tea is superior to Wu Long tea bags.

In recent times there have been some incredible claims for the properties of Wu Yi tea, and not just about weight loss. According to some it lessens signs of aging, increases energy levels, improves your teeth, even reduces hair loss. It is also considered beneficial improving the immune system...the list continues.

This is a truly amazing, natural product and well worth sourcing to bring into your life's every day routine. Find some on the net at or simply go to your local Asian speciality store. Research so far has indicated that Oolong Tea boosts the metabolic rate and definitely assists with weight-loss.

By increasing the metabolic rate you will find that you also have more energy. This is worth considering if you feel lethargic or suffer from low energy levels. A Japanese journal claims that this tea can increase the body's ability to burn fat. This declaration has increased the demand of Oolong Tea, and it is meant to be scarce in supply.

It is usually thought that this tea is extremely expensive. Wu Long Tea does vary in price from being inexpensive to over $20 for a very small quantity. Higher quality Wu Long is usually more greener with tinges of green. A weeks supply will usually set you back around $5.

Black tea and Green tea come from the same plant, Camelia sinensis. The differences in taste and colour are due to the way the leaves from the plant are processed. Wu Long Tea tends to be an in between colour...more brown, with the higher quality teas showing tinges of green.

If you are looking for a solution to weight loss, or just want to improve your health then consider strongly incorporating a few cups a day into your routine. I can personally recommend Wu Long Tea as being extremely beneficial. From being a regular coffee drinker I have for years felt sluggish with low energy levels. Dont get me wrong ..I adore coffee, but drinking Wu Long as a replacement has made a noticeable difference.

Want to give Oolong a try then start by replacing a couple of regular cups of coffee a day with this sensational drink. They have been at it for hundreds of years in China where its amazing properties are well known. You may want to visit to find out more.
