  1. I just found this Facebook page, and don't know what to think: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Truth-About-PETA/166315349555?ref=search&sid=769524347.639062767..1 Can someone help me out and advise if any of the claims they're making about PETA could be true? The page itself seems pretty mean-spirited, but I honestly want to sort out truth from misinformation.
  2. Fair enough, but is that low body fat due to the fact that she can control her carb intake better as a non-vegan? Just asking, because that's my biggest concern about going vegan - difficulty in managing carbs. Many vegan proteins seem to be also bound together with carbs, so less control in managing protein/carb ratios. Here are more pics of her. I personally find her plenty muscular, but I realize everyone has slightly different standards, so it's a matter of opinion: http://bodyspace.bodybuilding.com/ChickenTuna/more.php?section=progresspics
  3. I Googled Marzia Prince. She is beautiful & fit, but still appears quite smooth to me. I'm aiming closer to the look of the competitor photos that strawberryriddick posted in this thread. However I doubt they are vegan... (correct me if I'm wrong). I really appreciate this woman's very defined physique, but she is most definitely NOT vegan: http://www.bunklers.com So, my search for role models continues.
  4. Oops, I was able to change my password, never mind on that! Still learning my way around here...
  5. Strange, I am 'subscribed' to this thread, but I only received email notification on the first 2 replies. I just logged in and saw the rest. Thank you all for your very helpful replies! What you've said makes a lot of sense. I'll continue w/ my exploration of vegan fitness & bodybuilding. It certainly is a select subgroup, indeed.
  6. Thanks Strawberryriddick! I appreciate your reply of support! Good to know I'm not alone.
  7. Thank you for your reply - I'm assuming this is Denise Nicole? I think you look fantastic, so I hope you weren't insulted in any way, it's just that I'm aiming for a slightly different look. But to be clear, it's not "size" I'm inquiring about, it's definition. I would like to be slim, as you are, but also very defined. Kind of like Madonna was a couple years ago (currently, I think she's gone a little too far...) Are there potential health consequences to taking creatine? I'll contact you privately if preferred. Thank you!
  8. Hi, I'm new here, have pre-ordered Robert Cheeke's book, & contemplating the vegan (or close to vegan) bodybuilding/fitness approach. I'm female and about to turn 42, and my goal is to look like a fitness/figure athlete, with very defined & visible muscles. My concern is that in all the photos of *female* vegan bodybuilders & fitness/figure athletes (i.e. Denise Nicole), I see a disappointing lack of definition. They look slim & healthy, but frankly, rather smooth. In the male vegan athletes, I don't see this as much - although I do notice that male vegan bodybuilders seem in general smaller than even natural, non-vegan ones. However, I strongly suspect vegan is overall a much healthier lifestyle & diet, so I'm torn. Can someone speak to this issue of lack of definition for female fitness/figure athletes? Are there examples of some out there who DO have the definition I seek? Thank you in advance!
