I can really relate to your background. No doubt you have worked very hard to be where you are, congratulations! Keep it up😊 May 2, 2019 Reply Iron Vegan Hi Lilian! This is awesome that you stepped up to that silly meat-eaters' challenge that you couldn't do well in a bodybuilding show because your protein does not come from dead animals and animal products. I love it when folks prove 'em wrong. The thought that animal protein is necessary for muscle growth is absolutely not accurate, but from decades of animal agriculture advertising, most people still believe it. I know a guy who is kind of vegetarian, and sometimes at a meal, he will say he needs some protein, so he orders an animal or animal product, thoroughly convinced that it is necessary. He has not educated himself about protein from the plant kingdom, but he is not alone. I have been bodybuilding for 51 years now, and, while I began the journey as a highly carnivorous eater, I have been vegan for many years (although it did take me a while to wean myself off the common misinformation about the necessity of eating animals). I have no problems at all with muscular strength and performance as a vegan, and besides bodybuilding, have been pedaling recumbent cycles cross country for about ten years. I evolved to maximize my health and functional longevity, so was very serious about it. I have no regrets, and i congratulate you for your victories in life, and for telling your story here! Way to go! Thanks for sharing! See ya' …Steve May 3, 2019 Reply J3n Pho Awesome! Congrats! Thank you for sharing your story! May 6, 2019 Reply B. Porter Awesome. Isn't it amazing what happens when we eat the diet we're designed to eat? Humans are herbivores, and every one of these success stories corroborates that fact. (Edit: left a word out.) May 9, 2019 Reply Hambo team Thanks for sharing!! How much protein and fat do you consume? Ive sucess the Campbell course too , but high carb low fat make me hungry all the day. So ive increase fat, reduce carb and now feel great. May 31, 2019 Reply Martin Laursen Thanks for sharing your story. Nothing healthier to eat than Plant based whole foods.
