Vegan Experiment

I have been a vegetarian of some kind for well over 10 years.

I have experimented with adding fish, eating more eggs, cutting fish out, using protein powders, etc. etc. I have never put regular meat back into my diet though.

Sometimes when I train, I get very protein heavy (or it feels that way for me). I am kind of exhausted with that kind of diet, and I want to mix it up and try something new.

I decided (somewhat impulsively) Sunday to be a vegan for a little while. If you see above though, it's not really THAT big of a leap for me.

Not a long while, and not 100%. I am going to have cake and ice cream on my birthday in two weeks. I just am.
I did just finish reading this book, which I loved! Maybe I was feeling inspired:

I just love what he does and his deep commitment to health and plant based living.

While I am still base training, I am going to give it a shot.

I decided that after a little bit, I want to asses:

1. How do I feel? Am I too hungry?

2. How is my training going?

3. How lean do I feel?

After a decent try, I will look back on these goals, and see what I want to do from there.



  1. No advice, but I'm really anxious to hear how the experiment goes!!! Keep us updated!

  2. I'm a life long vegetarian (since age 10) and I go completely vegan sometimes. It doesn't take much thought or effort and I always feel better when I "go vegan". Somehow after a few weeks I always fall off the wagon and I have that all or nothing mentality. Interested to hear how it goes for you!
