Hi everyone,
I just recently made the switch to vegan after being vegetarian for about 2 years. I've been training hard to reverse a 20-kilo weight gain and have been lifting for the last 4 months or so. I guess I became vegan for the same reasons I became vegetarian, a psychological revulsion to animal products brought on by ethical and moral reasoning. I'm really interested in hi-raw diets and gluten free recipes as I'm gluten intolerant and probably fast on my way to having no friends as a result! I'd love to hear from any other GF-vegans and pick up on protein and strength training tips. My trainer is ovo-lacto vegetarian and not too keen on the raw thing, but I feel gross when I eat cooked food. Anyway, here's my before and after pic. Still working on the last 4% of body fat though, would love to get down to 18%!

Oh ahaha, I mean a much thinner version of Meg White. I visited Melbourne spring of 2010 and had a great time. I have some relatives that live right outside of that city. Good music scene there as well.
