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.

Your Well Being Rests Upon A Proper Diet

By Kelvin Peterson

The word diet must not be something new to any one, but when it comes to diet meal plans, the phrase itself might cause a little bit of confusion in ones mind. Everyone is aware of the fact that diet is something what we eat, but many of us might not be aware of the fact that what we eat matters a lot for the proper functioning of all our organs and the body as a whole.

The said importance of our diet for our bodies brings up the concept of a proper planning for our diet. The advancement in medical science has proven it all the way that a poor diet is more than capable of causing serious negative impacts on the health of our body. Our body is like a machine that comprises of various different systems and just like a machine needs proper oiling and fuel for its performance, our body also needs various different nutrients which work as fuel for different systems and organs in our body.

In order to get all the systems and organs of our body working effectively and efficiently, we need to have a proper diet plan to save ourselves from various diseases that could be caused by the deficiency of some nutrients. We need to have a balanced diet comprising of all the nutrients that are required by our bodies, but the problem is that many of us do not even know that what these nutrients are and how much of them we need for the proper functioning of our bodies.

This is where the Nutritionists come into play, who are the professionals who help us in giving us the awareness about the importance of different nutrients and who help us in making our diet plans.

A balanced diet plan, comprising of all the essential nutrients lik e, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, fats, fiber, minerals and water, is more than essential for the health of our bodies. The diet plans vary from individual to individual depending on the health conditions of every individual. For instance, the diet plan for an over weight person may be totally opposite of the diet plan for a person who is slightly under weight. Similarly, the diet plan of a sports man may be absolutely different from the diet plan of a normal person.

Moreover, one should have a clear perception of not believing that only unhealthy persons need a diet plan to reinforce their bodily health. A diet plan is equally important for a healthy person to maintain and prolong the blessing of health.
