Hi everyone! I hope you had a fab & festive holiday!!! We are now headed towards 2012 & I don't know about you but, I cannot wait!
I was perusing my own website & thought, 'Something is missing'. I realized we needed some more testosterone....enter Jason Velick. Jason graciously agreed to provide my readers w/ with a snippet of the benefits of a plant based diet.
Jason is Peta's Sexiest Vegetarian for 2011 but, in my opinion, his most impressive accolade is reversing his prior health condition(s). I am always blown away when I actually come in contact with the people who have changed their health via their diet.
Jason has proven to be a wonderful example, motivator and someone I consider a friend. I am honored to have him contribute to my website.
So, without further adieu...
Following a raw vegan diet has changed and simultaneously saved my life! For the past 3 years I have made changes to my diet starting with the elimination of meat, followed by all animal products.
A cooked vegan diet was a big step forward but nothing compared to the benefits that I realized by switching to a low fat raw vegan plan. Following this diet along with an active lifestyle has brought me to new levels of health and fitness. I didn't think it was possible for my 36 year old body to look better than most 20 year olds, but I do now!
I also credit my diet as my reason for winning PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian contest (http://features.peta.org/sexy-veg-2011/Winners.aspx).
Today I practice daily Bikram yoga and do as many outdoor activities as possible. I enjoy increased energy levels, my stress is well-managed and I take no pharmaceuticals. I no longer experience the symptoms of ADHD (diagnosed at the age of 10) or GERD. I feel at least 10 years younger than my age but I look even younger than that! I am completely thrilled with my success following a plant based diet and encourage everyone, regardless of anything, to seek out better health in this manner. I am always willing to answer questions and happy to assist others in transitioning to a vegan lifestyle.
