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.

Easily Lose 10 Pounds Hassle-Free - Clarified

By Scott Edwards

The Business Of Losing Weight Can Be Scary! You should recognize that in addition to being the problem for millions that it is - it's also a business. Diet industry businesses may often be tempted to benefit unduly from people's misfortune, as billions are spent on weight reduction each year.

How Big Is This Challenge? The fact that you're looking at this article probably means you have a problem with weight. It's understood from recent surveys that more than 2/3rds of American people are overweight. So that is well over 200 Million individuals!

What's more, that figure is a staggering 60 percent for the rest of the world as well. It's a sad indictment of the 21st century!

Surveys in the UK show that getting on for one fourth of all adults suffer from obesity. But what's worse - By 2050 the obesity level could be ninety per cent!

We have to take corrective action now. We've got to stop the trend before it's too late. Proper eating programs are required reading; ignore all the hype from diet pill manufacturers.

Some experts believe that fat is already an epidemic that can increase the risk of health issues such as: Cancer - Heart Disease - Heart Failure - Type Two Diabetes - High Blood Pressure - Liver Disease - High Cholesterol - Osteoarthritis.

Obviously with the threat of all these health issues, reducing our weight is a major priority. Fat loss isn't about getting to size zero - you should be aiming for a weight that's good for your health. The RIGHT weight varies so much between people, but we usually have a fairly good idea of what's comfortable, and what we can maintain.

We should also teach our kids about good health. We should educate our youngsters from an early age, helping them to form good habits from the start. Keep doing the same thing, and both you and the kids will have to live with the consequences. We can surely adopt better parenting skills than that?
