Hi All,

My name is Adrienne. I am 29 year-old bodybuilder, triathlete (ok, so I did ONE), Software Engineer, part-time fitness trainer and soon-to-be Specialist in Performance Nutrition. :D

I am pretty sure I am on my way to Veganhood. A few months ago, I cut most animal protein. I have been dairy- and gluten-free for awhile because my digestive system hates it. The remaining animal products (occasional fish, yogurt, cheese, eggs) I could do without.. I just haven't made that final leap yet.

I am pretty much the only one of my kind around here, so it will be nice to network with the like-minded.

So, hi!

:D

~ Adrienne

Welcome to the group Adrienne,

Great to have another bodybuilder! Even though we are "Bodybuilding & Fitness" site, we actually don't have that many bodybuilders on here. So, it it totally awesome that you joined us!

I look forward to getting to know you on the forum.

Have a great day!

-Robert

AdrienneP..welcome ! Hello...I was surprised to see you here, and you are thinking who is this who recognizes me ? Hmmm who is raw figure right ?

We have been at a few shows together and have mutual aquaintences in the bb world. And at a few shows together. Leslie from INBF Figure in Buffalo. Remeber me ? Tall, short dark hair ? I think we did the show together in 2004, and last year I did not compete INBF did USBF instead but I was at the INFB NSSN show last May. Are you doing that show this year ? I was going to do NPC in Rochester in June but instead I decided to retire for now and be a Judge instead.

So back to what you said about being on your own if you go Vegetarian....When I became Vegan I found very little acceptence on my old BB boards. So here I am, now longer on the old boards. And if you say Raw Vegan...well that is not real acceptable conversation !! So you will find support here !!!

I became a Raw Vegan about 7 months ago. After 6 years of dieting for shows, the high protein animal products, protein drinks...same as you I ended up with terrible digestive problems and a screwed up Metabolism, surving on low low calories to stay thin.

So I went back to my Vegetarian ways (of my young adult life) and I now follow the Raw Vegan Diet. My twin sister introduced it too me thinking it would help me heal with the book The Raw Food Detox Diet. It HAS ! My digestive issues, done ! As well as my hypoglycemia. I also dropped my protein in 1/2 and my energy is through the roof (no more dragging butt..) and training is better to.

So WELCOME !!

Ha ha. Actually, I recognized your avatar of your hubby kissin ya at the NSSN!! ;) :lol:

I'm taking some time off from the shows. I got kinda burnt out even by just doing one show a year! The dieting is tough on me. I can't maintain a low, low body fat because my body just isn't happy with that. We are planning to get pregnant soon, so no shows for awhile!! :lol: I am starting to feel the itch again, but I know I won't be able to compete for a couple of years.

I had no idea you were a Vegan! Cool! I have made a slow transition. I cut out certain types of *meat*, then all of it. Now I am ready to do all the rest of the animal products. I just didn't realize how badly animal byproducts have perpetuated our society. Ew. I have a lot of vitamins and skin products that will slowly need to be replaced... sheesh.

How do you get into the judging? I would like to do that.

Thanks for the welcome!!!

~ Adrienne

Wow, that is soooo cool the two of you know each other from competing! This is great!

I'm happy you both found your way here and are able to get in touch again too.

Awesome to have you both here and have a great time. I'm less than 6 weeks away from my next contest....time to get down to business.

Dairy is especially so not good for you. Even fat free dairy is linked with hypertension, etc. I cited the sources for this somewhere in a thread under general discussion, or maybe it was nutrition.

Anyway, congrats on choosing a healthy and compassionate diet/lifestyle. This is the place to be for any vegan bodybuilder especially.
