I also recommend taking the 5000iu Vitamin D below monday to friday during the winter months if you aren't able to prod...

Re: Vegan Diet and Acne

Pesticides. Try all Organic. I did the whole linking certain foods to certain places of the body where I would get acne. Bananas - chest acne, gluten/legumes - acne shoulders, dairy - acne back/face, blueberries - acne on the side of my face, fabric softner for underwear - acne on my butt cheeks, et...

Re: Food Ideas that are quick yet wholesome to help with iss

Its a great idea however it isn't my idea. We use to as a society grind seeds with devices like a mortar and pestle. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortar_and_pestle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molcajete I edited my post about Cantaloupe/Canary/Honeydew melon seeds being toxic when sprouted/germinate...

Re: veganism won't work for me

All your problems are indicative of low Vitamin A and D levels. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2906676/ I recommend taking a 5000iu dose of Vitamin D every morning for 14 days because it usually takes 12-14 for the human body to convert enough inactive vitamin D into active vitamin D an...

Re: Virgina Messina: Disease Shaming And Vegan Diets

Your body needs the nutrients in leafy greens to repair itself. Try a salad per day and see how you feel.

Re: Eat Stop Eat or The Warrior Diet?

Fasting increases hormone levels however walking 10 kilometers non-stop per day is much better at raising hormone levels and you'll gain a strong core for the effort. ;)

This is something that even as a none meat eater i have no issues with. You clea...
