Alrighty bud. NOT TO pee in your cheerios too badly here, but honestly, do you have a giggle filter at all when reading this tripe? mine went off as
soon as i saw daniel fast.
Ok, first off, if you're going to be going all veggie and such, yeah, you'll get a bit of a rush since you're carb loading. When people go on these
so called fasts, one of the first things you see is they start reaching for the sugary fruits in mass quantities, but hey, its fine to get jacked up
on sugar highs all day as long as its 'all natural' right?
Ok secondly, now that you're eating veggies and grains and all that, you're not consuming as much fiber as if you ate a wicker swing set daily,
prepare to poop! hey colon cleanses can be good for you, ill give you that. Its good to try to clear out some of the leftover crap in our system, no
pun intended. Remember the days as a kid and many times you'd complain to mom that you didnt feel good an d(as many moms do) they say you just need
to have a good poop, and oddly, you did feel good after one? Welcome to the basic unbalanced american diet where chronic constipation reigns.
Didi it ever occur to yu that we're as humans, omnivores for a reason? Basic nutritional health there. Not all protein is equal just like not all
carbs (simple vs complex) are really equal. Yep, we need meat to run well, not just exist.
I'm sure that many will post all kinds of anecdotal evidence that they lost so much weight going veg, then again, look at the numbers.. you subsist
on a bunch of calorie poor foods, then you radically lower your caloric intake, welcome to starvation diets, but with all the water you're consuming
from the liquid content of the veggies, your hunger mechanism gets short circuited.
Now, I'll give some credit where credit is due. I'll preface it tho with some basic assumptions. I'm assuming you're a male, over 25, with a
mostly sedentary job. By sedentary, I mean that unless you have something working you into a moderate sweat for a good 4-6 hours a day that doesn't
involve stress at office meetings or working in a place that doesn't require long bouts of physical labor then your nutrient needs aren't high at
all. That hour every other day in the gym doesn't count either. We don't eat enough veggies in our diet in general. They're the bulk fillers that
give some nutrient value, but are mostly valuable for their fiber content.
Like anything, you can believe what you want, or you can just be real and take things for what they are, but realize what they are and how it ends at
that. Also, do notice how full of crap the vegetarian propaganda is, and worse, the rhetoric they use. Look into your own quotes and see how they
even contradict themselves. We ingest pain and suffering when we eat meat, but then later, we see how experiemnts show that veggies are 'aliev' and
possibly eve aware or sentient or perceiving.. oh wait, we yank them out of the ground an dstarve them to death before we mutilate them as eat them as
well. but hey, veggies don't moo or bark or any of that, so what we don't see won't trigger the guilt that others would lay upon us.
