Without ever intending for it to happen, many people find themselves caught up in the modern-day whirlwind of activity and overload. Our culture is defined by go-go-go and despite being blessed with many labor-saving devices, these only serve to actually make us even more busy — for the faster we’re able to get things done, [...]

For many of us, Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday binge. Just on Thanksgiving Day alone, the average person consumes around 4500 calories. This is often times followed up by almost a week of left-over cakes, pies and pounds of stuffing which easily takes us into December with its various Christmas parties and the [...]

Lemonade Diet Recipe

Posted by admin on October 21st, 2006

I’ve been asked numerous times what the recipe is for the lemonade diet or lemonade fast. I’ve partially included it on day 1 of my experience with the lemonade diet. However this doesn’t have all the details such as how to make the Salt Water Flush or what type of tea one should drink at [...]

Why I stopped drinking coke and why you should too

Posted by admin on September 17th, 2006

Pop, soda, coke, whatever you call it there are three reasons why we should stop drinking it: Caffeine, Aspartame, and High-Fructose Corn Syrup. Never having been a coffee drinker, I used to pride myself in not joining the flocking masses waiting in line for their morning fix at the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts. It wasn’t until [...]

How to achieve a quiet mind

Posted by admin on August 30th, 2006

When people think of meditation, usually images of far-away yogis sitting crosslegged chanting mantras are conjured up. Meditation for most people’s minds involves sitting still, closing one’s eyes, relaxing the body, breathing deeply and trying to find that place in which many Zen practitioners call “no mind”.

Lemonade Diet – Day 9

Posted by admin on March 28th, 2006

This fast is now coming to a close. My tongue for the second day now is appearing pink. According to the book I guess I could stop now, however I want to complete at least 10 days. One interesting observation that I’ve discovered is my reflexes have seemed to have improved. Like a bull in [...]

Lemonade Diet – Day 8

Posted by admin on March 27th, 2006

Wow I can’t believe it has been 8 days already. If you’d have asked me on day 3 I wouldn’t think this fast would ever end but now I’m rather enjoying this lemonade drink. I’m still considerably cold throughout the day as a result of drinking the mixture cold; one thing I haven’t tried yet [...]

Lemonade Diet – Day 7

Posted by admin on March 26th, 2006

Wierd…today I had that craving for chicken again. It wasn’t as intense as yesterday, but the craving was still there. According to the book, those kinds of cravings are supposed to go away with the next mornings bowel movements. Well that didn’t happen. Possibly there’s something in chicken that my body needs and it’s trying [...]
