My name is Elijah and I have been eating the vegan version of Dr. Fuhrman's dietary recommendations since August of '05. I was a vegunkatarian for about a year before that.
Anyways, I got this website from the user "Offense74". Cool guy!
I have been training hard for the past 2 weeks on the Core Performance program minus his dietary recommendations!!
I play competitive baseball in 2 different leagues here in Denver and am looking forward to developing some explosive speed, strength and power!!
I go whitewater kayaking in the Colorado Rivers as well!
My goals are to increase my raw intake of both fruits and veggies. I have been looking at "The fruitarian one's" website and videos quite a bit and am very impressed. I bought a whole bunch more fruit tonight. I still plan on eating veggies at the moment but I definitely plan on increasing my fruit intake and decreasing my cooked veggie intake and substituting it with more raw veggies and leafy greens.
I have been lurking for 3-4 days now and have been very impressed by some of your photos!! It is very inspirational to see the images of fellow vegan athletes!
I just took my before pictures except I forgot to do the side shot, I will take that in a week when I get my digital camera back from my GF (she is on vacation).
I will be posting my results when there are some to show
I am 5' 11" and weigh about 150 lbs and plan to gain about .5-1 lb per week of training. So in a few months I will have gained 10+ pounds and can post some images.
I do not take protein supplements or powders although I did try that a year ago when I started the Core Performance program, I fell off that wagon, still have the whey powder and creatine. Dunno why, I guess I really should throw it out. I will not be falling off the wagon this time, Something is different this time, I am extremely dedicated this time and have been waking up at 4:45 am every morning to workout (I used to sleep until 8-9 am). I want to be a vegan role model and am sick of people telling me I am skinny. I will be wearing a shirt soon that says "Vegan Power" when I become more muscular.
I am working on becoming bi-lingual in both Spanish and English.
Well I could go on but I guess that is what my blog is for!
