Hi, my name is Brandi and I love weight lifting and just finished my first figure show. I am new to being a vegetarian, yeh, going on 3 weeks now, and hope one day to go all the way and become a vegan. I was eating really clean during my first competition, but the excessive amounts of chicken, tuna, and occasional beef, left my stomach in knots and to the point where I could hardly digest my food. I planned to go on a meat detox after my completion, but now after reading some about animal cruelty and the fact that their are plenty of athletes that are vegan, I thought to myself, hey I can do this too! I am here to discuss my journey and learn as much as I can. I did not really work with a trainer or dietitian during my first show. To make a long story short, I went through three trainers and none of them had the knowledge or time to help me out with what I wanted to achieve. I am looking to develop a new lifestyle by being a vegetarian and want to really transform my body by eating super clean and gaining muscle.
