    Default Ruben Studdard on colonics and why he became a vegetarian

    Ruben Studdard: Why I Became a Vegetarian

    Former American Idol star, Ruben Studdard, 28, has always been open about his weight problems -- and his success in shedding over a 100 lbs earlier this year by making extreme changes to his diet and exercise regimen. In an interview with PETA vice-president, Dan Matthews, the singer talks about the spiritual side of being a vegetarian, getting regular colonics, and how his new lifestyle is effecting his band.

    Why He Became a Vegetarian:
    "I actually came home, and there was a little brochure in my hometown paper -- I ain't never told nobody this -- but it was a thing about cleaning up your temple. I think it was like a Seventh Day Adventist magazine, and they were talking about 'try vegetarian.' I went online that day, and I just started reading little things from different vegetarians, and it was so much easier than I thought it would be, so I decided to try it."

    His Favorite Veggie Snacks:
    "My favorite dish is from PF Chang's -- the Buddha's Feast. It's hands-down my favorite dish. And the tofu lettuce wraps. McDonald's has a veggie burger now. It's not as good as Burger King. Burger King's veggie burger is off the chain."

    His Colonic Guru:
    "They [medical experts] talk about all the colon problems, blah blah. And I've had a hydro-colonic before, so the lady that does that for us, she eats only raw vegetables-like she won't anything but raw vegetables. And of course every time we'd go, she'd be like 'try this' and 'stop this,' but of course we weren't paying any attention -- -but now of course we do!"

    How His Diet Has Changed His Bandmates:
    "My band, they all complain about my rider requirements for only veggie stuff backstage, but they're learning too, like I did. There's always a better way to live if you're open to it."

    Good for him, if I remember wasn't there a period of time where he didn't care how big he got? Glad he's taking his health under his own control.

    I hope he does'nt depend on those colonics. It's not something to use every time you want to lose weight. His diet seems to be alright, but I hope he's getting protein from something else if he's not eating meat. Overall, good for him. :thumbsup:

    And of course, and interview with the president of PETA wouldn't put any kind of positive spin on the benefits of vegetarianism at all.

    Longterm over-use of colonics IS dangerous and won't make you lose weight. It's fine if you are doing a major detox once in a while, but your colon just isn't designed to be washed clean - eating lots of fibre will do the job of keeping it healthy just as effectively.
