I live in the fitness community- specifically one that touts "Paleo" (meat + vegetables, no grains) as THE diet to follow. One of the most popular trainers decided to go from Paleo to raw vegan for 30 days. I think a lot of people expected her to be tired, exhausted, unable to lift her weights, etc.


Anyways, I thought I'd share her quick blog on what happened. Some nice recipes too. A surprising result and funny enough, many people couldn't quite believe that she blew their theories out of the water. She wrote this in early 2011 and apparently never stopped the 30 day 'trial'.


I like to share this because I hear so much about vegans being unable to lift a weight or always sick and tired. My experience was similar to hers as well, I was actually at my peak shape only a few months after becoming vegan (then I had kids, hah!)

Thanks for sharing!!  Yeah, I wouldn't expect a person on a high-meat, low-carb (even limiting sweet fruits) diet to exactly have good recovery or energy!  :)  :vebo:

It all depends on how you do it. The Paleo diet gives some guidelines on what to eat and in what ratio, but 'vegan' just means no animal products and meat. Lots of times they end up eating a horrible diet just because they don't know how to eat. Thanks for sharing, good blog entry.
