Greetings from Miami, FL
I am a soon to be graduate student (location TBD), have extreme respect for nutrition and health.
I have been vegan for about three years or so, first sparked by my vegetarian roommate who started educating me on the agricultural/environmental impact that the “standard” ways of diets had on our earth.
Currently I am working (busting my chops, 2x/week) with my trainer in order to ‘lean up’ and define my muscles, albeit actual bodybuilding is not something I would strive for (still love going to the competitions!).
Although my nutrition grasp is pretty on point, I want to see different views on vegan foods when combined with heavy exercise/lifting.
*Quinoa and beans, although my favorite combination, are leaving me bloated and gassy! Have mild intolerance to soy doesn’t help either
Thanks, and I'm looking forward to reading more posts!
