  1. What to eat before and after exercise was very helpful for. I try to combine and 90% raw diet with 10% cooked vegan. I'm training for my first figure so this was particularly helpful! THANK YOU!!!
  2. This was an awesome "challenge" The best thing was that if forced me to really think about my workouts and food intake. I'm training for my first figure this June so that's really important - and now I realize how much! Also, it was great to see what other are doing and what works for them. New ideas are always awesome!

  18. Becoming vegan has improved my health 10fold!!! In addition to that I have continued to do more research on what goes in my mouth and on my body. I am much more conscience of the the earth and animals and the world around me. I also find that I am more "in touch" with myself - I feel physically cleaner an therefore think more clear. I may wax and wane between raw vegan and cooked vegan. however I'll NEVER go back to a carnivore lifestyle...
