a) you should still eat proteins. In my post I mentioned eating soy and nuts to maintain a proper level of protein. Another importang part of a purging diet is yogurt which is a source of protein as well.

b) I said salad, but I didnt mean a bowl of leaves. There is nothing wrong with filling it full of raw vegetables, fruits and nuts or whatever else you please as long as it isnt cheese and meat or bread products.

All it takes is a little bit of imagination to make a well balanced diet for one or two weeks that doesnt involve meat or processed foods. I'm sorry you thought I meant leaves and oats, but I did not. Perhaps I should have said high fiber, high roughage but I did not. Obviously one has to temper advice on a website with a bit of common sense.

Peas, soybeans, all other beans, oats, apples, bananas, berries, brocolli, carrots, green beans, zucchini, yams, potatoes (both with skins on), nuts, seeds, bran, and yogurt/unpastuerized milk are all acceptable parts of a purging diet.

Its silly to say you could not build a diet with the above ingredients that won't put you into a long term catabolic state. I disagree with you 100% that one would have more unbound toxins after a mere 2 weeks on such a diet.

Why not do it the other way? it would be much much healthier

and by "the other way" I mean to do the following:

eat oatmeal every morning
have a salad and only a salad for lunch
have a light dinner of yet more salad
snack on high fiber cereal throughout the day.

get your proteins from soy and nuts only





How is the above post remotely similar to what you have just written in your expanded version?

Where is the 'important' inclusion of yogurt?

Where do you clarify your definition of 'salad' includes everything but the kitchen sink?

it is unrealistic to make a lazy half a$$ed post with nothing but the vaguest detail and not be pulled up on it, and you have no reason to get snotty for me doing so- its my job to highlight unhealthy or potentialy bad advice on this forum- your first post was bad advice

Now my input has made you expand and detail what you meant to say, which was a the outline for a basic balanced vegetarian diet- not 'eat salad and salad and more salad'

People can read your posts, they can not read your mind. Post responsibly or not at all.

Cord out.

Doesn't regular exercise basically keep one 'regular'? Especially just plain walking?

due to stress and diet, most Americans have many hardened layers of mucoid plaque. The healthy colon weighs about 4 pounds. One autopsy revealed a colon choked with 40 pounds of impacted mucoid plaque! A proper colon cleanse and detoxification program prepares your body for optimal health by removing the mucoid plaque.




My understanding is that a high-fiber diet will preclude the need for "irrigations". I am happy with a bowl of shredded wheat in the morning, thanks.

Regular exertion aids peristalsis- contraction of the abdominal muscles helps 'massage' waste through the intestine- a bit like squeezing a tube of toothpaste

If one is, ahem, a little 'blocked' some moderate exercise can help get things moving again.

I agree. Since being a youth I have found the more active I am with exercise and sports, the more active my waste system is ... and is still true to this day. I can't really see a colon cleansing getting that much more out of me.

I guess I should have specified my question a bit. I've heard about lots of people and celebrities doing the irrigation thing. Nasty. There are some things Usher shouldn't share, ya know! What I was really asking about are the non-butt tube kinds of programs, like the ones advertized on late night tv. The one that really started my wondering is at www.7dmc.com In the commercial they talk on all about mucous plaque and bulid up, but I've never heard of that before. Is it even real?? That's my real question. The only websites I can find that talk about "mucous plaque" are the websites that convinently sell products that rid you of it. Truth or conspiracy???

Look at your own observation on this. Now think about if you really need anyone here to answer it for you.

A good amount of fibre in your diet, and eating well in general will take care of your waste pipes just fine.

Check out healthcentral.com Ive heard the Dr discuss this topic on his radio show. The short version is they're preying on your fears with misinformation, and eat enough fiber. My personal opinion is that there's some Freudian displaced sexuality at work here. People forgeting ( or not ever knowing) where things (and what things) go in and out. K-

You lost me on this one kman ... but don't go into any descriptions as the forum rules forbid talk of sexuality or any reference to it.
