My name is Carola, and I am from both Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California. I currently live in Okinawa, Japan due to being enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.
I have been eating vegan for almost a year with a few bumps in the road (I finally decided to give up fish!!!!). I initially started by watching certain documentaries and getting very educated in the subject, and I decided to clean my diet after I realized how the animals were being treated, and most importantly the impact on health.
I have always been very active, but I just recently got into weightlifting, CrossFit, and high intese training.
My main goal is to one day maybe participate in a bikini contest, although I am waaaaay far from it. I am currently a few pounds overweight, and to be honest I have never really been happy with my body, and I have always had a horrible relationship with food.
Eating vegan had helped me acquire the sense of "control" that I needed in my life in order to move forward with my relationship with food, and even though I am still far from my goals, and I getting closer ever day!
If you have any tips on hot cut off body fat, it would be greatly appreciated!
