Mine isn't an article it is actually Derek's posing video. It is just amazing to see how muscular you can be on a plant based diet and honestly look so much better than omnivores

My favorite article is
Get in Shape and Stay in Shape to wear your Beach Body all year long By Julia Abbott and Robert Cheeke .

Well, it's my favorite, because it offers great advice to help kick start the new year. It addresses my problem of starting the year with the right intentions, but not sticking to it.

It has an awesome smoothie recipe, and a great, short, work out!

I really like the "Plant Based Nutrition – Will I Get Anemic?" article by Derek Tresize.

When I first became vegetarian 20 years ago, I blacked out due to anemia and my doctor told me it was due to lack of meat in my diet. I wasn't prepared to go back to a meat based way of eating so I resolved to spend the rest of life in iron supplements.

Since becoming completely vegan 18 months ago, I've really looked at what I eat and I've pretty much switched to the whole food approach. Since then, my need for supplemental iron has all but disappeared. Just goes to show what the doctor knew, huh? ;) Derek's article is a great reminder of what to eat and how to combine foods to promote the best iron absorption. It's also a useful article to refer people to when they ask me where I get my iron from (after they've asked me where I get my protein from of course!).

My favorite article is "What to Eat Before and After Exercise". It offers logical, reasonable suggestions and tips that are easy to follow and incorporate into your life and workout routine.

"From Scrawny to Brawny" is definitely my favorite. I love hearing how people get started with going vegan, and their success stories are always inspiring. I think its a great resource for non-vegans and vegans alike!

My favorite article is 'What To Eat Before & After Exercise.' I struggle with the right times to eat because I don't workout well with food in my stomach but I feel like if I drink a Vega WFHO shake 2 1/2 hours before I workout, I'm usually good, but starving afterwards. I know WFHO doesn't load up on the carbs so I add a bunch of fruit & veg to my smoothie, but I'm still wondering if it's enough carbs.....hmm. The article is great because it helps me to understand the right time to drink a protein shake. It makes such a huge difference when consumed after a workout with a big salad! :)

I'd have to go with "Plant-Based Nutrition: Will I get Anemic? by Derek Tresize". Just stresses the need for variety and indicates factors that may increase or decrease iron absorption. Thank you!

My favorite is "Why Vegan" by Derek Tresize. I share the same motivations he states in the article. I also want to show my friends and family that vegans are not weak. My cousin is constantly telling me that you absolutely cannot build muscle on a vegan diet since you will not get enough protein. He also believes that you have to eat meat to be a complete man. I pointed him to this website!

"What To Eat Before And After Exercise".

I was so clueless on this for so long. I used to just run 6 miles on no food and water and feel fine. I tried to do this for strength training and weight lifting when I started and I felt like crap!! I always keep a little fruit with me just in case. The other day it really saved me!! Last thing I need is to be that goofball at the gym who faints from exhaustion.

My article choise is 'Total Body Mass' by Derek Tresize.

I loved his trials with the multi-muscle group workouts- as a crossfitter, I too have to watch 'overtraining', but the varied workouts each day, rather than focusing on just one muscle group, have helped me achieve greater results, and faster, than with a traditional scheduled workout routine.

love the forums and articles, informative, results-based, and from experts who are also working within a cruelty-free lifestyle. It's all inspiring.

What to eat before and after exercise was very helpful for. I try to combine and 90% raw diet with 10% cooked vegan. I'm training for my first figure so this was particularly helpful!
THANK YOU!!!

http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page= ... principles

All the articles on training certain body parts are important to me too, but this one I really enjoyed because I am sooo new to bodybuilding & learned so much about how to do it best from this article.

You guys really spoil us, ya know that? Man oh man do I love these Vega products too lol =)

I like two articles from the site. "From Scrawny to Brawny" (for my son). 4/6 of us are vegans and the other 2 are vegetarians. My son is a vegan and is an 86lb 13 yro going on 14 (currently 5'4"). He does eat a lot of meals but his metabolism is something his sisters and I wish we had. He has been bullied by the neighborhood kids because of his size and lost some confidence in socializing. So, he started to lift weights at the YMCA to try building muscle, gain weight, and build confidence. We have not had any success yet, but we're just getting started. This article is a confidence booster for him that it is possible to be scrawny and work hard to be "brawny" while being vegan.

The other article is "What to eat Before and After exercise." Because not only does my son want to get it right, we - as a family need to as well for optimum health.
