Hi , my name is Lukas, from Poland, age 32 :mrgreen:

Vegan for two years now, switch from meat diet in just one day after having problems with cholesterol and high sugar level in blood. What really motivated me was a Gary Yourovsky youtube video.

Since then I have lost like 12 kg and for the last 6 month I doing gym twice a week , bit of cycling and swimming from time to time. It's not easy since i work a lot and have two kids to look after but I do manage and finally have enough energy to cope :mrgreen:

My diet was based mostly on meat like products at the beginning , but now I try to eat more raw, at least one salad a day , fruits veggies, raw cakes and stuff.. i make my own food ( as the only vegan in my family) mostly buy organic now and make burgers from rice, peas, lentils etc and they really cheap and delicious:-) try to avoid fat, fried and processed food.

I will seek for some advise since I want to push harder and prove my diet to all that doubt me
Here is some pictures of my gym progress about two month ago ( so I bigger now ) :mrgreen:

Qustions

What is the best pre-work out boost , I used to take Jack3D once but it's full of chemicals and could not sleep after it any natural alternative with no sweeteners ?

i recommend buying unflavored pea/rice protein in bulk, the flavored stuff usually has stevia and er... flavorings in it, which dont go well with rice/pea

Yay, another vegan Polak :) I was so surprised to see how vegan friendly Poland has become. Even a tiny village of 2500 where I lived had meat substitutes in a small corner shop.

Where abouts in the motherland are you?

Welcome from a Polish-American forum member here, Dude you look young for 32. I'm your age. Must be the diet and exercise, definitely! I personally like Vega products a lot for protien and for pre-workout boosts. I also like hemp protien. What is Herb protien? Is that a brand, or a specific type of herb or a mixture of protiens from several herbs?

I assumed he meant iHerb, but I could be wrong.
