Did you lose, or gained weight? ( When you became a Vegan )

#1 Postby andgbr » Wed Dec 20, 2006 11:58 pm

When you first became vegan, did you lose or gained weight?
After the whole ''detoxification'' process did you gained some extra pounds back? Or kept with the same weight?

------

In my case i lost a lot, and a ''year later'' i was thin, then after some thin time, i started gaining my weight back, is that part of the detoxification process? :lol:

I didn't lose weight, but lost a fair bit of toxic flab.
I eat more now also, and I haven't been gaining more flab.

I was eating apples, salad, wheat bread and OJ for the most part after going vegan, running a few miles every morning at 4 am and went from 180 to 165 really quickly. That's what got me started on weight lifting.

I stayed the same weight for a few years. Then gained about 40 pounds after I started strength training

My weight stayed the same...I think I gained maybe 5 lbs going vegetarian but that lasted about 2 weeks before I went vegan...after that I maintained my weight but got alot stonger which leads me to believe I melted alot of fat away and put on more muscle mass

I stayed the same weight really, recently I put a bit more on from sitting around a lot. But for about 5 or 6 years of being vegan, I was the same weight.

I lost about 20 pounds after becoming vegan. Since then I have gained that back and a bit more after going through a bad bout of depression, but I'm working on getting rid of it now.

I lost about 5-8 pounds at first (7 months ago). But within the last two months I have gained it back. It's taken some work, but it's coming. We'll see where we can get to.

Lost a little, but then found it easier to maintain once I figured out the volume and type of healthy food I needed to eat.

I lost a good deal of weight when I became vegan five years ago. Then, I put on some weight, and now it's coming back off. My weight has always fluctuated throughout my life though. I was the token "fat kid" of my friends through elementary and middle school. :oops: :cry:

I have stayed the same weight, but my bodyfat percentage has went down.
