  2. Re: Is a vegan diet ecologically sustainable?

    The ethics concerning veganism are complex and it is therefore inappropriate to reduce them to a polarized debate.

    To just focus on the ecological arguments for veganism, it could be argued that...

    If you are referring to the food combining diet, I'd like to emphasise that this is not so much a diet but a way of eating healthily and it dates back thousands of years.
  22. Re: Help me look good naked - healthy eating and exercise plan needed.

    Try also the food combining diet. Don't mix starches and proteins in the same meal. For example stir fried veggies and rice is good or tofu and veggies is good. Chilli without the burrittos etc....
