HI,

Im new here I have been a vegan for 15months now and gone from 106kg to my new weight of 79kg. I Watched Jonathon Safran-foer on Ellen one day off sick from work and after that interview that day went and bought his book Eating Animals That Day i went cold turkey Vegan and have been ever since. I have been training in MMA for 11 years now and was sick of the Vegan Stereotype so I got back in the ring after 5 years to prove us Vegans are tough it also helped motivate me to lose the weight as I had been Vegan for 9 months and was down to 87kgs and decided to enter into a fight at 79kg well on the day I weight in at 77.8kg which was awesome. Well that challenge is done and now looking at my smaller frame and the comments of gee you got small I have decided thats another stereotype of veganism i want gone no more skinny vegan guy I wanna be muscle bound. Below is my photos at 106kg and today at 78kg and my first day of serious weight trainning looking forward to packing on some muscle.

Great progress! I think the vegan diet can be great for MMA athletics, but you just have to keep up with the higher protein foods. Good luck!
