My name is Ashley I am 24 years old and live in Maryland. I have recently discovered this site and have enjoyed reading about so much great information!

A little about myself: I have been vegetarian for a little over a year and have been vegan for the last 8 months. I am a very healthy eater and absolutely love trying new foods, definitely not a picky eater at all! I have a very fast metabolism and am very tiny so I have recently been trying to gain healthy weight and muscle mass. I currently do cardio workouts about 5 times a week, take a small group strength training class once a week, and work with a personal trainer once a week (which I plan on increasing overtime when my schedule allows!)

Since I am only beginning this journey and have so much to learn, I am hoping to find some valuable information here, especially on calorie intake and protein requirements in order to reach my goals!

Hi Ashley, welcome to the team! Feel free to post questionz on everyones threads. The journal section is great for seeing what others and doing and eating. You might even want to start your own after reading others, its a great way to hold yourself accountable. Feel free to ask me questions directly too as I like to stay very active in this forum.
