Some of us aren’t quite ready to be a vegetarian. Common sense and good intentions are in conflict with your tastebuds. We question if its true that we really do live longer or it just feels this way when we make the move away from meat. The Ultimate Yogi Diet is based on common sense. We call it the common sense food program. It is designed for easy integration towards a healthier lifestyle. Diet is an integral part of the program. For 108 Days you simply follow the principals set up in the book and with a little self exploration you will discover the perfect blend of food to deliver you to a state of optimal health and vitality. Every cycle you will discover a new way of eating within the cleanses. Each of these diets has been specially chosen so that you can explore a different type of nourishment because variety truly is the spice of life. Who knows with a little more variety in your diet you might actually begin to enjoy some healthier options.

Being Vegan simply means no animal or dairy products. This opens you up to a variety of other dietary options. There are many health benefits of being vegan but it is also important to recognize your own body’s needs. Being Vegan is another great way to reduce your carbon footprint on the planet as it takes less energy to produce vegetables than meat.
