Are you looking for a whey (pardon the pun) to spike your body’s protein levels, drop a great deal of fat and water, and embark upon a sort of “cleansing phase”? If so, whey fasting might just be right for you! It involves the consumption of a great deal of water and whey, along with some fast burning carbohydrate sources like fruit and vegetables. Meat and starchy carbs are off the menu.

You’ll need to schedule this fasting for a time where you have a little bit of freedom. Your body might react in an odd way to the sudden influx of whey protein, and it might not be a positive thing until your digestive track adjusts to it. Fasting is a common practice in many cultures for religious purposes. It allows the person to remove toxins from the body, as well as clear the intestines of built up waste. Many people also experience a spiritual awakening as their bodies face this change.

Each meal should consist of two scoops of whey protein, along with a good, clean carbohydrate source from the fruit or vegetable family. Eat another meal every hour if you’d like. Whenever you’re hungry, go for it again. You’re essentially ‘grazing’, or eating small amounts of protein all day along with a carb source for fiber and energy. Whey protein is a wonderful thing. It’s healthy and contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of complete proteins. Most bodybuilders, strength trainers, and athletes around the world use it regularly to fuel their workouts and recovery.

Be prepared for hunger pangs. Take additional supplements to assist with any shortcomings from your current consumptions. A good multi-vitamin, vitamin B,C,E, and fish oil capsules should be adequate. You may need to cut back …

Two Lesser Known Facts About MRI Scans

1. They don’t always involve stuffing you in a tube

You no longer necessarily have to live your claustrophobic nightmare when you need an MRI scan. Instead of the traditional tube scanner, you can get what is called an open MRI scan. If you’re the type of person or the parent of a child who cannot handle tight spaces without panicking or squirming, you can get an MRI without needing some sort of sedation. This opens up even the possibility of having an MRI for people who are too large to fit in the standard tiny tube. There are even ones where you can stand upright, though this third category does have the lowest detail.

2. They have a wide variety of applications

Your basic X-ray is not going to reveal anything but problems with your bones, and even then, it can miss something. MRI scans are for more than getting clearer detail on your bones. They can pick up fine details and inconsistencies in all of your soft tissues. This includes everything from your spinal cord to your internal organs, right down to your blood vessels. They can diagnose cancer, strokes, brain injuries, and so much more.

One major caution is that MRI scans use magnetic fields to get such fine detail. Anyone with medical hardware that hasn’t been modernized to allow for MRI scans isn’t able to get one. So if you’ve got a plate in your head or spine, or if …
