"To fast could mean a more certain dealth. In this place, we were always fasting. It was Yom Kippur year-round. But there were those who said we should fast, precisely because it was dangerous to do so"(Wiesel
That bump you see underneath my shirt is not my cell phone, but my insulin pump. The scars on my finger tips aren’t freckles, but scars from testing my blood sugar over and over each day. I am just your average teenager when it comes to school, family, and friends. But when it comes to my health, I am not so average. I face the not-so-average questions of, “Why do you have a wire hanging from your hip?”, “Do you need to go shoot up your drugs?”, and the best one yet- “You eat salad everyday. how did you get diabetes? You’re so skinny, I don’t understand!”

Many people, including me and Lauren do not like to fast. For me and Lauren, fasting was difficult. Often times we might forget that we are supposed to fast that day or other times we are just so hungry that we break down and eat a snack or a sandwich. I think Lauren summarized that main point of fasting very well, she basically says that fasting is not meant to torture us or punish us but instead it is meant to help us slow down, take a break from any distractions in our lives and to focus on what is really important in our lives. Often times in life, we worry too much. We can worry about school, our jobs, our friends or even trivial things like, which girl is Ben going to choose on “The Bachelor.” To me it often seems like we never worry about our relationship with God. We are so busy living life that we sort of forget to slow down and remember the person who gave us life in the first
Goals or needs can play an intense role in the different views of culturally motivated reasoning. We often have or mind set in stuff that benefit us or are that are in our favor. If we have a certain idea or mindset we can go out of our way to make that idea true and conclusive. This not only includes personal point of views to keep ourselves from believing things we don’t want, but views that can be altered by others to keep us from seeing things they don’t want us to see. This is often common in the political world where information is shared a certain way so that we can see what they want us to see and not what it really is. However, that is no different from the unconscious tendency of ourselves in processing information that suits our
What is Veganism? A way of life that adopts a Vegan diet and believes harming animals for meat or products is wrong. Yet, people say vegans are the inhumane and unreasonable ones. Think about where the animals come from. They are not grazing around in a green field. Instead, they are being forced to lay eggs and get hormones injected into them to make them bigger. Is that really what you want in your body? Veganism is a kinder way of life, it’s better for the environment, and it helps your body in whole.
Importance of religion in Iran and its society is a crucial point in this graphic novel, Persepolis: A Story of a Childhood. It was mentioned in the novel how the society was corrupted when the Shah took charge. When the Shah took over, this lead to the many rebellions and demonstrations Iran had in order to keep the peoples freedom. The significance of women and how they were treated was also affected when everything changed during the 1980’s. Women are treated not only like trophy wives but they also did not have any sort of freedom for themselves. I had a well-known understanding in the treatment of women is Iran but did not understand why they are treated in such a disgusting manner. Men of Iran are not allowed to interact with women when

Contrary to most weight loss diets and programs, a ketogenic diet works on the principle of consuming less of carbohydrates. In a ketogenic diet, you are made to eat less carbs so that your body goes in to a state of ketosis.

This helps to increase your quality of life and also gives you longevity. This might seem difficult

One of the prevalent enemy people desiring to lose weight might actually face is food addiction. This is frequently experienced as cravings for various types of foods.
