Bobb Harper decided to embrace a vegan diet after his doctor informed him that he had high cholesteral as noted in the blog post: Bob Harper – The Biggest Loser. Bob noted the great benefits of veganism, but did not maintain this lifestyle. However, Bob noted later that his body “needed more” in A Reuter’s interview. This may be the case for Bob, but there are vegans who live very athletic lifestyles.
Here are a few examples: John Salley (Basketball Player); Robert Cheeke (Bodybuilder – Founder and President of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness); Venus Williams (Tennis Player); Daniel Byran (Wrestler); David Zabriskie (Cyclist); Ed Templeton (Skate Boarder) and so many more people….
So, embrace what is best for your body! I’ve had lots of energy working out flowing a vegan lifestyle. However, I do feel it if I am not eating properly or make drastic changes to my diet (like eating something that I have removed from my diet).
I decided to make a lifestyle change when I decided to embrace veganism & hit the gym more consistently. I know that there are many people who embrace veganism because they are animal rights activist. That is fine. However, there are more and more people are embracing this lifestyle because of the health benefits. Many people are virtually forced into this lifestyle due to sickness and disease while others are simply fed up with taking so many meds. Whatever you reason in it doesn’t matter is you follow a vegan diet once a week, 1 meal a day, 2 weeks or month or transition your entire nutrition lifestyle, studies show that many people can benefit from following a plant-based diet to some capacity. I realize that this process is a personal journey. Some people who have been vegan for years some how forget that process of change in the beginning and that irritates me. There are also some people may wake up one they and immediately change their diets, not everyone is like that. We cannot let people put us in a box because we don’t do what they do in the manner that they did it. I know they have good intentions, but one of th best things someone can do is to simply encourage a person to embrace change one day at a time according to their personal life steps. I have not followed this lifestyle perfectly, but honestly January 2011 I wasn’t thinking about being a vegan. However, I am doing it quite well in 2012 and I’ve lost a few pounds to boot
