Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

Thanks for the advice. My ankle is completely healed now and I pretty much picked up from where i left off with my running. I'm alternating between running 5 miles and cycling 10-12 miles every other day. I'm doing bodyweight exercises everyday and lifting weights every other day. My fitness levels ...

Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

I got a bike a few days ago so have been cycling until my ankle heals and I can run again. The previous two days I cycled 6 miles and this morning I cycled 10.I have decided to alternate cycling and running. I'm going to run again tomorrow but take it easy to make sure my ankle is okay. I've started...

Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

I injured my ankle yesterday, which is really frustrating because I won't be able to run for at least a few days, maybe longer. I haven't run for about 4 or 5 days due to heavy rain in the mornings and now the injury. I'm going to try and focus on strength building exercises until it heals. I haven'...

Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

I just checked google maps and it looks like closer to 9 miles (in 30 degree C heat) I ran today so I'm feeling really good.

Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

Thanks for the advice. i'll check out the running forum. My diet has stayed the same but I am feeling hungry and having to eat more on the days that i am exercising. I am only having the hemp protein on my exercise day too. I am drinking a lot of water but that could be more to do with the heat-wave...

Re: Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

Thanks for the support :-) My running has been going well but today I couldn't run as far as usual because I've upped my pace a bit so that was a bit disheartening. I'm not sure whether it's best to keep running at the same pace and cover more distance or running a shorter distance faster. I did fee...

Matt's Fat to Fit Journal

A month ago I weighed 225lbs, was eating a very unhealthy vegetarian diet and not exercising at all. I now weigh 215 and am eating a vegan diet (mostly raw), running and lifting dumbells- 8kg each. I plan on joining a gym and buying some heavier weights. My diet is giving me so much more energy. I'm...

Lifestyle change

Hi, I started an account here a while ago but never used it. I have had a few failed attempts to lose weight and build muscle so I'm hoping to stay motivated this time. I decided to post this because I would like some support and advice particularly from vegan bodybuilders. In the past month I have ...

Re: how often/much do you drink?

I don't enjoy being drunk or being around drunk people but I occasionally drink real ales because I like the taste and like to try different varieties. I haven't had one since going vegan so I'm not sure whether they are or not.

Also, I wondered if raw vegans drink alcohol?

Hello

Hi, I'm Matthew. I've been reading the forums for a few days and thought I better introduce myself. I became vegetarian when I was 14 (i'm 28 now) and have just recently gone vegan. My diet up until now has been quite unhealthy- lots of cheese, pizza, chocolate. I am happy to be vegan at the moment ...
