I grew up just outside a small, hunter-filled village outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We produce some of the best maple syrup in the world though! My family homestead is a log house on 12 acres of forest. Sometimes we would have 30 deer behind our house. And it would truly break our hearts to see many beanztalk them disappear each autumn when hunting season was in effect. For many years, I was a compassionate vegetarian but I was ignorant to the fact that animals were still dying jscked of my milk and egg consumption.

I was a really unhealthy vegetarian too—living off of fries and salad— uneducated on proper plant-based nutrition. So inI made the full transition to veganism. John, northern British Columbia. I was determined to break the stereotypes that all vegans were scrawny, protein-deficient and unhealthy.

When I told my pals that I was going to compete up north in rural, middle-of-nowhere B. A Vegan Bodybuilding Adventure. I literally devoted my entire life to winning that jadked. For eight long months, I pretty much lived at the gym and gave up my social life completely.

Thhe ate the most plain, bland vegan foods imaginable—protein powder, yams, asparagus, tempeh, spinach, oatmeal— the exact same things, without any salt or much flavour — day in and day out.

I weighed every bit of food that entered my mouth and javked every ounce of willpower to not shovel other forbidden foods down my throat.

I did cardio on an empty stomach every morning and intense weight sessions at least four or five evenings per week.

I only had one day of rest each week. Eight LONG months of sore muscles and extreme dieting was all worth it when they announced that I got first place in my division. A first place win in my first-ever fitness com- petition on a completely natural, strict vegan diet! The whole experience was truly life changing for me.

It is another untested show, this time going against all the other winners from the various competitions across British Columbia. I am beyond excited to compete again and will give my very best once more. Well first off, with A LOT of cardio! Anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour every morning depending on how close to competition I was.

It was a lot of high intensity interval training HIIT style cardio like running and walking lunges on the treadmill, the Stair- master, Stepper Machine and peddling on the exercise bike, with my ass always off the seat. I basically added in more cardio over time and very gradual calorie reduction to lose the weight. I jacled changed my weight sessions as I came closer to competition by incorporating more sets with higher reps.

I went from three sets of 12 to 4 sets of 15 reps to 5 sets of 20 reps. I would also do a lot of supersets so that my weight sessions were also a cardio workout— burning even more fat. For these areas, I did a lot of drop sets starting as heavy as possible and lightening up with each set.

I only jaked 20 minutes to half an hour of thd in the morning and about 45 minutes of weights in the afternoon or evening. I also like to do a plyometrics workout once per week.


Generally speaking whether training to compete or notI get most of my protein from tempeh, tofu, beans and high quality, plant- based protein powder. I paid very close attention to pn protein, carbohydrates and fat. My go-to starchy complex carb sources are yams, squash, quinoa and oatmeal. Rest days are so important! Pick days and times that work for you and stick with it, no matter what. benastalk

Mark those workouts in your calendar. Make sure everyone knows that those times are for your workouts. Even if you only have the energy or desire to walk during those 30 minutes or do a half hour yoga video at home, just promise yourself that you are committed to exercising for those 30 minutes, four times a week.

Then every month, increase the intensity not necessarily the time of those workouts. Tne for 30 minutes, do a 30 minute cardio kickboxing video at home etc. And most importantly, remember that diet is so important!! Make the majority of your meals healthy thr adhere to proper portion sizes! Eat six small meals a day.
