Ciao a tutti!!!

Hello everyone,
My name is Alessandro, I have been a raw-vegan now for roughly a year and was vegan before that for several. Overall I find the treatment of animals in modern factory farms to be utterly deplorable and find myself compelled to relay the vegan message to those willing to listen. I started my vegan journey for moral reasons coupled with my obsession with nutrition and exercise. I decided to try the raw-vegan approach out of pure skepticism and found myself transformed in the process. I have been bodybuilding for 8 years and have gone through several changes physically in the process. I am lighter and slightly weaker than I was as a strict vegetarian but I am faster and more flexible as a raw-vegan. I am interested in sharing my progress in what is now the beginning of my second year as a raw-vegan, and I would love to hear your secrets to success, particularly with regard to a diet very light on protein. I found most of you on my-space where I run the Raw Vegan and Fruitarian space, which I have been neglecting as of late. Anyway nice to meet you all and I look forward to giving and receiving as much knowledge as possible from our interactions.

Hi Alessandro!
I've become very curious about raw-vegan lately myself, but I don't know much about it - I'm very interested to hear your input! Glad to have you hear!
