I’ve been vegan for over 12 years and at age 36, never been as fit, strong, healthy and well-built as I am today. Many years ago, there were very little resources, information and well known vegan personalities as there are today, therefore most of what I have achieved over the years has been through my own research and trial and error.
I started weight training when I was 17 because I was a pretty skinny guy and wanted to add some bulk, so the first 6 years of working out were done on an omnivorous diet, as this was the only way I thought it would be possible to reach my goals. As you can imagine, going vegan was a daunting experience, I turned vegan overnight at 23 and wanted to continue to train as hard as I had always done. To my surprise, training became easier, I got stronger and found I could recover days quicker than before, just from the change in my diet.
Since then, I have experimented with different ways of eating and training methods, and my aim now is to share what I have discovered along the way with as many people as possible.
