Subject: Should I detox/fast?
Date: January 31, 2003 at 5:49 pm PST

I'm a newbie (about 3 mos as a vegetarian) and have some of the typical problems any diet change brings, but particularly gas. I've also developed this cough that is chronic, and increasing, mainly after exertion. I do not smoke, live with a smoker, etc. I have inhalent allergies so wonder if this coughing is a form of detoxing? Other than that, I feel better, more energetic, and almost immediately after making the switch, lost all my cravings and interest in processed sugar products--a huge hurdle of addiction for me.
I'm thinking though that to speed any last bits of my former bad diet from my system should I do a cleansing fast? Or should that just be a regular part of my vegetarian diet anyway?
