My name is Jessi and I am new to the plant-based diet.
I competed in my first bikini competition in July on an animal protein diet. I won first place, but felt awful my entire prep. I decided to research the vegan lifestyle and came across documentaries like Forks Over Knives, Earthlings and watch "The Best Speech You'll Ever Hear" and I can never eat how I used go ever again after the knowledge I have gained.
I do Wang to continue competing and prep for a level 5 NPC competiton in the upcoming year but I am doing it completely plant-based. I am a bit nervous but I know it is possible.
If there are any fellow competitors and/or vegan people in Orlando, I would love to make new friends and have a support system. My family friends and even my coach have lost faith that I can do a show plant based. So I could use allthe help I can get!
